We wanted a decent place to stay that had a pool and whirlpool. No whirlpool but got a jacuzzi suite for a little bit of nothing. April B. was great even gave us directions to different places to eat based on what we wanted. Will definately recommend this place to everyone. Right by the interstate close to casino. Great service.

We had gotten off to a late start from home and "accidentally" discovered the hotel when we stopped for dinner at the Denney's in front of it. April B. greeted us when we came in...there were 5 of us. We were so impressed, that on the way home the following Thursday (we stayed on 2 consecutive Thursdays!), we were again running behind schedule and stayed again! We had meant to be a couple of hours farther along! April B. again greeted us. She even remembered our mother's name! She is really a nice person to be greeted by when you are worn out from traveling!

We were in town for a wedding and booked this hotel as it was close to the convention center where the reception was being held. The lobby furnishings are very nice. The coffee is outstanding! We enjoyed our breakfast/everything was hot and fresh. Good price on the room. Michelle checked us out and was very friendly and helpful. We will definately stay again if we are in the area.

This was an OK hotel. Lots of people there for casinos. They spent a lot of money apparently on renovations but to me not enough. Some things still looked old. Rooms were nice though and the beds were great. Very comfortable. This is a hard place to find. Luckily we had a GPS system.

It helps show us what we are doing right and what we can improve on. I would love for you to contact me directly at the hotel if you have time to discuss what you think we can improve on and what you think we need to achieve 5 stars in your book. I thank you again for reviewing us and choosing our hotel and I hope we see you again soon!

The Best Western Saint Charles Inn was a nice surprise for a last minute stop during a long trip. We were traveling from Kentucky to Kansas City for a funeral and just needed a place to rest. Upon entering the hotel lobby, we were greeted with a warm smile and friendly welcome by April B.She got us all settled in and gave us a lot of information about the stores and restaurants in the area. The stay was perfect from the clean room to the warm pool to relax in. After hours in a car it was nice to feel comfortable!!

When we were ready to turn in for the night April made sure we knew about the breakfast times. She also welcomed us to stop in on our return visit! We plan to do just that!

Room Tip: third floor was nice and quiet

I had the opportunity to spend a few nights last month at this new hotel. I was asked to review a project in Earth City and it would take me a few days. I chose this hotel instead of the average or typical "corporate" park hotels because I like having various options available to me at night other than a Philips Gas Station or McDonalds, as is the case in Earth City. This hotel is brand new, offers ALL the latest and expected amenities for the corporate traveler- New state of the art rooms, Fast internet, free breakfast, and VERY helpful and over the top service. I was able to spend one night in downtown St. Charles, had dinner on a quaint brick lined street and of course visited a few bars. This downtown is very charming and very historical and the hotel made great suggestions. The next night, I inquired about the large full service and upscale casino across the street. So, I walked over. It was a 5 minute walk and WOW- this is quite an establishment. Being from the NorthEast I would compare it Foxwoods or the Mohegan Sun. By the way, broke even which is ok by me. In closing, I appreciate as a business traveler having options like this available to me and if EVER in the Earth City Area- The Best Western PLUS will be seeing me again.

Wow! Thank you so much for taking the time to review our property. I'm so pleased that your experience at our hotel and in our community was so positive. So many people who come to our area and work in Earth City don't realize how much our area offers and how close it is to Earth City. I'm glad you found your way to us and I truly hope we get to see you again in the future! Thank you for choosing our hotel!

This Best Western Plus really was a PLUS. Ideal location to my office in Earth City with much more to offer with food, nightlife & shops nearby. I highly recommend this place. I also recommend a small restaurant on Main Street called Magpie Cafe.
