“Decent for a one night stay. Better than average actually.”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

We have stayed here before and thought it was a nice place. This trip was fine, just not great. The staff at check in and checkout were very friendly and helpful. The room is good size except for the bathroom. Other than being next to the elevator the room was fine. The bed seemed to lean a bit toward the middle but was not bad. Breakfast is more than adequate. The location is great if you are passing through or have business or pleasure in the area. It's quick on and off the highway.

We have family just a few miles away and for one night this was just fine. Our first choice is a bit closer and better for a weekend for us. We made a last minute decision to travel for one night and would stay here again for sure.

Food and beverage is a short walk from the front desk with some chain restaurants and bars adjacent.

We Keep coming back! The BW Kirkwood Inn is our favorite place to stay when we make our way to the St. Louis area. It's always clean and nice with a very friendly and helpful staff. We love the breakfast too. It's a quick hop and skip to be on the interstate and zip to any attraction in the area. This last time we even stayed one night free on our Rewards points. In a word: excellent!

THis was a great location- an attached chain restaurant was very convenient for the weary traveler. Friendly staff added to the enjoyment. The room was very clean and accomodations were ample. Would definitely stay again

Hello and many thanks for your testimonial about your stay. Our location in southwest St. Louis speaks to our favorite saying, that we are the best base camp for your visit to St. Louis. Being within walking distance of shopping and dining - and minutes from all area attractions speaks to your comments. We pride ourselves on our cleanliness and customer service and are very grateful that you noted both in your review. We hope to be of service when you return to the area!

Our late February stay at this Best Western worked out well. The room was clean and neat and convenient for us and our small dog. Usually we prefer to see the area and hotel, but that runs the risk of the losing out on limited pet friendly rooms. We would hit Kirkwood/St. Louis area around 6PM, so we called ahead to reserve this room. We had no idea of the neighborhood, etc, except for the good info on Trip Advisor our go-to resource for scoring good rooms at good rates. And it was good we called to learn they only had one pet friendly room left and we would be booking it after the deadline to cancel. This is where Trip Advisor becomes super helpful, giving you the added confidence to close the deal. We were satisfied with our room and enjoyed the convenience of a full service chain restaurant connected to the hotel making a carry-out-room service meal easy as pie.

On check in we were assigned a room and I went down to check it before unloading. On opening the door it was obvious the room was occupied, but fortunately no one was home. So, back to the apologetic front desk clerk to be assigned a nearby room across the hall just as the guests were entering the first room we were given. No harm, no foul.
A good stay.

Great location. Front desk staff was friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable. Plenty of places to eat nearby as well as Chili's hooked to the hotel. The bed was clean but I've had more comfortable mattresses. It wasn't bad just not the best. It appeared that the room had recently been renovated with carpet, furniture and paint. Everything was clean. Being on the 1st floor near the exit I was concerned that it might be noisy but I'm happy to say that I did not notice anything out of the ordinary. The breakfast was good with plenty of hot items to choose from. I definitely recommend this facility and will stay again on my next visit to St Louis.

I stayed here mainly because of the central location. I had jobs throughout St. Louis county and did not want to change hotels every night. The hotel is in good repair and very clean. The rooms are well appointed and the furnishings, if not new, are in good shape. The breakfast was above average, with both hot and cold items. There is a Chilis' restaurant attached to the hotel which offers room service - very convenient. There is also a small cocktail lounge on premises. The hotel is located in a retail complex with a Walmart, and 5 restaurants within walking distance. The pool is outdoors, and was obviously closed for the winter but it looked like it would be quite enjoyable when open. The fitness center was small but very well maintained...Recal bike machine, elliptical, and treadmill as well as a complete set of barbells. The guest laundry is in the same room as the fitness center which was a little weird, but it did not diminish the effectiveness of my workout. This is an excellent hotel, I will stay there again and heartily recommend it.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 2nd floor and up have a very small balcony. Not even big enough for a chair, but very c...

Being new to St. Louis, I was not sure where to stay during my visit to the St. Louis area for a business trip. This was a pleasant surprise with little negative to say.

PROS: It is close to a main highway, which made it nice getting to and from my clients every day. There were plenty of places to eat within walking distance, including Texas Roadhouse and Chili's. The hotel did supply a 10% coupon for each, which was a nice touch.

I try to eat healthy on my trips, and their breakfast, had hard boiled eggs, yogurt and fruit, which many Best Western's do carry as well, but theirs seemed to be fresh, which was pleasant. The staff were very friendly and helpful, which for being out of town is nice.

The rate was about average for a Best Western, however for being indoors, working elevators, good internet connectivity, etc, it is worth the price.

CONS: Well, there were only a couple of things I found discouraging, they were minor in nature, but for some, it is still an inconvenience. First, if you are accustomed to having a microwave in your room during a Best Western stay, such as I am, be prepared to go to the lobby to cook your popcorn or heat your food, as there is no Microwave in the room.

Second, the coke machines, well all are high on the road, right? This one is very high, $2.00 for a coke, hmm, good thing Dunkin Doughnuts is in the same parking lot. The snack machine follows in suit, I paid $1.50 for my Three Musketeer candy bar. So if you plan to use the vending machines during your stay bring your quarters, you will need them.

Summary: All in all, I would stay here again if my travels take me this way.
