Best Western On The River
Ranked #1 of 10 Hotels in Hannibal
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 6, 2012

This is a three story hotel with a swimming pool in the atrium. The air would be similar to going to a Lifetime Fitness' pool area. Over all an average hotel. Bring your own pillow unless you are use to using a basketball for a pillow. The bright shining light to the stay was the breakfast. The guy that runs the breakfast bar knows what he is doing.

Room Tip: Get a 3rd floor room.

Just spent one night here. The room was tastefully decorated and had all the amenities - fridge, microwave, hair dryer. We had great view of the river. The pool was warm and the hot tub was comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Short walking distance to the attractions. Then there was breakfast - bacon, sausage, eggs, pancakes, biscuits, gravy, juices, yogurt, cereal, toast, muffins, fresh coffee. The price was a little higher than we like to pay but it was worth it.

I travel three to four nights per week and had the worst experience ever at this hotel and I never made it past the front desk!

I reserved a room for Friday 5/25 for a one night stay during a business trip. Upon arrival I was informed that the hotel would not honor my corporate rate which I reserved the day before. When I questioned why I was told it's a holiday and your rate does not apply and that they had booked me for the night before and not Friday, their mistake not mine. When I informed the manager (who I think was the owner making the rest of this story worse) that I would write this review if she did not honor the booked rate she agreed to the corporate rate. I thanked her for the decision and she then informed me that she would make her employee pay the difference !!! The kicker was she wanted ME TO TELL THE EMPLOYEE THEY WOULD HAVE TO PAY THE DIFFERENCE (we were on the phone). I then replied that I would not stay with her because of the way she treated me and her employee. I also informed this review would be written. I hope all that read this decide on another location in Hannibal and allow this owner to remember her poor business practices and hopefully treats her valued guests and employees with the respect they deserve.

Room Tip: Go to another hotel!

Nice modern rooms with trendy colors if you like that sort of thing. Did not like the rooms with no outside windows. Similar to an inside cabin on a cruise ship lighting wise. The pillows were to square and lumpy. The fan in the bathroom was so loud it was ridiculous. Also did not like how the room opened to an indoor pool which seemed very cool at first but then was actually loud because of all the activity echoing in the inside area. Staff were very friendly. Location not on the river but great location to all the tourist sites and main street shops. Free parking and wifi. Nice breakfast. Our heating didn't work in our room only the ac.

If you're in Hannibal to relive Mark Twain's past, then this motel is second to none. Everything but the cave is within 5 blocks, including the shore of the Mississippi River. We had a 3rd floor room facing the Mississippi...a super unobstructed view. There are also rooms on the sides and back of the motel facing either a dirt hill or a parking lot...an awful view. So make sure you pick the right room during reservationing.

The attractive pool area has a down-side. It is located in one of two indoor central atriums surrounded by rooms. Noise from late-evening kids playing in the pool echo throughout because there isn't any sound insulation around or above to speak of. To avoid this, ask for a room along the southern atrium, and again, facing the river...rooms on this side overlook an atrium with sofas, conference areas, etc...very quite in comparison.

On certain days the continental breakfast includes a unique round egg concoction with meats inside...a tasty surprise that shouldn't be missed.

The hotel in located very close to all the attractions and restaurants for you to walk to. The room was spacious with 2 queen beds. The heated indoor pool and spa was a bonus. The breakfast had a good choice of items. There is an elevator.

Room Tip: Rooms upstairs and away from the swimming pool area are quieter.
