“Great Last Minute Stay”
Reviewed December 6, 2011

We stayed the night in Mexico, MO during a family emergency. The staff was very understanding when we arrived at 2 am with the intention of leaving early in the morning that they only charged us half price for the room. They also left a key for me at the door since some of my family arrived earlier in the night. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. It was a very short stay, but good value for the price. The complementary breakfast was tasty and they had a number of options available (hot and cold).

The Hotel is a great bargain in all areas. The room was furnished well and comfortable and internet access was fast and easy. The hotel has everything a person could want in a smaller market location and the 30 minute drive from there to Columbia in the mornings was quiet and peaceful. Free FULL breakfast was a nice touch. Staff friendly and well versed in the hotel and local surroundings. The use of an older tube style TV wasn't actually a let down as such. But an LCD would have been better!

We were in Mexico for the night and decided this was probably the best option of hotels in the area. The room was clean and did not smell. These are the main things I look for when staying at a hotel. The only problem was housekeeping came beating on the door at around 10 even though I had my do not disturb sign on the door. They even tried to open the door but the latch was on so they couldn't get in then they kept knocking after that! It was really annoyed considering I was still in bed trying to sleep! Other than that, it was a decent stay.

We spent 2 nights here. For the town of Mexico, this seems to be the best option. The rooms we had were clean, however, the sheets were stained with something black. I just kept telling myself they had been washed and were just stained! The rooms aren't sound proof -- at 6:00 a.m. we were all woke up with a shower running that wasn't in our room. The breakfast was sufficient for what we needed. My two teenage boys had no complaints. The hotel does need to start giving itself a good cleaning and remodeling. It is starting to show wear. My only complaint is their check-out time -- 11:00 a.m. Most of us staying there were there to visit our sons at the local Academy and they always have morning activities. Since, I am sure they get a lot of business from this school, I would think during parents' weekends they could plan accordingly and extend their check-out time.

Room Tip: Not a smoke free hotel.

Thank you for your TripAdvisor review. Our team here at Best Western Teal Lake Inn strives to make your stay as pleasant as possible so that you will come back and visit us again. Please feel free to ask for a late check out when you need it. We give a hand full of late checkouts, unfortunately extending our checkout time does not allow us enough time to turn the rooms over in time for folks arriving that evening. I also appreciate your feedback on updating, and am happy to report we are working hard to update and maintain our hotel. We would like you to know that your comments and opinions are greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your business. We look forward to seeing you in the future.

Nothing special here. Just your average chain style motel. Inside rooms. Mediocre TV channels. Decent Internet access. OK breakfast.

The rooms are a little dated and show some wear but are serviceable. Decent bathroom and showerhead. Separate vanity with a crowded countertop.

The rooms can be a little loud if the neighbors are noisy.

After reading some glowing reviews , we made the mistake of booking this hotel during a busy weekend. We were placed in an upstairs smoking room (we were told no non-smoking rooms were available, despite being on a "wait list" for over 6 weeks.) When we questioned this on check-in, the cranky and overwhelmed front desk staff very loudly berated us. No elevator, no bell staff, and a very steep and narrow stairway led to the second floor. Left our larger bag in the car, then hauled what we could upstairs. Our second floor room was unbearably stuffy, with foul dead air, and absolutely no ventilation. Window was sealed shut. Carpet was ripped; you could see were the center of the room had been vaccuumed in the not too distant past, but thick layers of dust were visible under every piece of furniture. Surfaces were visibly soiled. Lousy bed, but the worst thing was , the blanket did not even fit-it was much too small for the king sized bed. The aggressive and hostile front desk staff refused to accept a cancellation-insisting that we would be charged whether we stayed or not. We never ventured down to the free breakfast-put off by the foul odors . Given all the wonderful reviews we read, I want to offer another perspective of this hotel. Our experience was very different than any of those we have read.
