“Wonderful Hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

We had travelled all day and chose this hotel by the reviews on Tripadvisor. It was dark when we arrived so what a pleasant surprise in the morning to see the location! We were a block from the quaint shopping area and historic area. The hotel itself was very comfortable and quiet. The room was excellent and the beds were perfect. The staff were helpful and friendly. We wished we had more time to spend there. We will definitely be back and we won't search for another hotel. It is very nice and it is in the perfect spot.

Its a awesome view of the river if you get a room on the river side. Plus everything is walking distance. Also mark twain restauraunt is right across road. And all the shops and diners are a couple blocks.

My husband is from Hannibal and we like to stay in a hotel over Christmas to give his parents a break... Also, we get a little down time from the whole family. This is the second year we've stayed! The room was clean! The staff very friendly! The food was excellent! Our son who loves the pool was able to swim and have fun! We will stay again!

This was not our first visit at this hotel, and it will not be our last. The first desk ladies, Grace, Ivy, and Amber are professional, helpful, and very sweet. They will do everything possible to make your stay pleasant. Nothing is as good on a cold winter night then, friendly faces, chocolate chip cookies, and hot coffee to warm the body and soul. Our 3rd floor suite was clean, spacious, and beautiful. The cleaning staff are wonderful, and very nice. The young male chef, is very friendly, and takes great pride in his work. The breakfast was great. The shops are only a block or two from the hotel and this comes in handy when the weather is very hot, cold, or rainy and you have alot to carry,(and I usually do). We hope to visit again, whenever we're in Hannibal.

Room Tip: We prefer the 3rd floor rooms, away from the pool. It is much quieter. Being a light sleeper I need...

We recently stayed overnight at this hotel on two consecutive Saturday nights (so 2 one-night stays a week apart). I found the hotel to be clean, the front desk to be friendly and helpful and the location to be perfect. It has good proximity to highway 61 and is just a short walk from the historic Hannibal downtown. My kids enjoyed swimming in the indoor pool, which is in the middle of the hotel (kind of strange setup). The guest rooms we stayed in had no exterior windows. They overlooked the interior of the hotel, including the pool.

The hotel rate includes a full breakfast, which I found to be inedible, other than the waffles. It could've made this only a 3-star review based on the breakfast but I thought that was unfair to the hotel, which gave us 2 good nights. The first weekend we stayed, the eggs (made from an egg substitute powder) were stuck together and chalky. The juice from the juice machine was watered down so much that neither of my kids would drink it. I opted to pick up a granola bar at a gas station on our way out of town rather than eat anything at the hotel. The second day -- a week later -- they had these egg/bacon/biscuit rounds that my mother said were awful (I don't eat meat). The man who makes the breakfast is very proud of his work, and he will tell you everything that's available, but take my advice -- get back on the road and find something else to eat.

I don't have anything negative to say about this hotel. We were just passing through and needed to stay the night. Everyone was very courteous and our room was great. We got a king size bed which was firm. The room looked like it had been renovated which looked great. Nice hot shower, flat screen tv, fridge and microwave. Breakfast was good. We didnt use the pool which was in the middle of the hotel off the lobby. I highly recommend this hotel if you are needing to find a nice place that truly is great value for your money. Thank you to the staff of the hotel.

The Best Western on the River was a very good value. Clean, comfortable, courteous staff and a great complimentary breakfast. Carl, the cook/supervisor was particularly friendly and helpful providing advice on the sights in the area.
