“Awesome stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013

First off, we were really stressed and tired when we got to the hotel and April B was wonderful and made that first impression a very good one. We were coming home from seeing our son graduate from Navy boot camp and she gave us a good rate and so good we went back down and booked the room for the following night and enjoyed us some St. Louis. The breakfast was wonderful and I loved the big room to eat in. Our room was clean and the only complaint I have is that the bathroom is in need of some remodeling and fixing. The bathtub was very slick and the bathroom has just been really mistreated. April B was the best person at the desk. Some would not even speak to you, so I was really glad that April B was the first one we met. The extras with this hotel were great, aracade room, pool, nice lobby, work out room, breakfast was great, close to the Interstate and easy to get to. Besides the bathroom needing some help, the only other problem was the dog next door. So remember if you are taking a dog with you not to let them bark and drive the neighbors crazy. I would recommend this hotel and would stay there again. Thanks April B was being such a sweetheart and going above and beyond to make our stay great.

Solid BW with all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. We used Gold Crowne points & were happy to be given a Jacuzzi suite. Everything was very clean, spacious enough, but on the first floor. We prefer upstairs to eliminate noise but the only other Jacuzzi suite was occupied. So call direct to book if you want the suite upstairs. Standard BW breakfast fare, above average and a good start to the day. .

While located in the historic area, it's not "in" the historic area. We're runners so also love walking, but to reach the historic area you need to cross a few fairly busy streets. Definitely doable but we didn't since I knew we'd have lots of packages from shopping to bring home. And we did :) We'll definitely stay here again.

We come to St. Louis often & of course we like to gamble at the Ameristar Casino but sometimes the wallet isn't flush enough to stay at their hotel. It's time like those we enjoy staying at Best Western Plus on 5th St. It has more benefits than Ameristar at half the cost. We like the first floor the best, with 2 queen beds (with duvets no less!), fridge, microwave, coffee pot, & any bath item you could want is just a request away. April B was particularly helpful from check-in to check-out & every quest in between. Breakfast is a wonderful bonus for this hotel. Homemade waffles, muffins, fresh fruit, bacon, sausage, toast, milk, coffee, juice, cereal, plus the morning paper! Who could ask for more? Arcade room for the kids, hot coffee always available in the lobby, small indoor pool, computer room in the lobby, fireplace & TV in the lobby, & the newly renovated décor is very elegant! Look for coupons in travel books for an even better room value.

November 9-13 we stayed at the Best Western in Saint Charles, MO. with our small Italian greyhound. On our arrival the staff was very accommodating and friendly. We found the room to be very clean and modern. They have a very nice indoor pool and workout facility. It is perfectly located as it is close to the interstate, casino, and historic district. A special thanks to their staff , Amanda and Michelle on making our stay very pleasant.
