Stayed at this hotel for a weekend. It was my first visit to St. Louis and my first time at a America's Best Value hotel. The outer appreance of this hotel leaves something to be desired. It seems old and unkept. The front desk office needs a good cleaning. They offer donuts, muffins,fruit and beverages until 9:30am. I never made...

Found this hotel to be outdated and right on top of the freeway. Upon walking to our room, we seen a transexual male hooker roaming the halls. The room itself, was ok, but the deadbolt was broken and gave me an uneasy feeling (rm 304). The shower needed to be fixed bc it leaked and was causing the ceiling to...

I was apprehensive about staying at this property, but it was only for one night so we decided to go for it. We arrived pretty early - way before the 3pm check-in time - but we were able to get straight into the room. It was the day of a Rams Thursday night football game, which we were attending, so...

Rooms were very dirty and smelled like smoke. I would not recommend staying here nor will I ever stay here again. It was cheaper than other places downtown and close to Edward Jones dome, but those are the only good things about this place. Extremely run down, dirty, horrible smell, and I didn't feel safe staying here. If you are...

Room smelled like smoke and mildew. It looked like somebody had tried to use the tank of the toilet for something, because the lid was on backwards. Toiletries were very limited. Shower was dirty. The telling sign was the carpeted staircase leading up to the second floor. Who puts carpet on an outdoor staircase?

My husband and I were college students in Chicago when we got married, so our options for Honeymoons were limited. We decided St. Louis because the Amtrak takes us right into the city. We chose our hotel based upon location and price. I suppose we were asking for a crazy experience since we only paid $52.50, but how could we...

It is probably the cheapest place to stay in STL downtown, within 10 mins walk from decent restaurants and bars in Downtown and the Metrolink station (STL light rail system). However, it is not the best place to stay in. You can see really weirdo types in the motel. The surrounding also feels really unsafe after dark. I was simply...

Stayed here for one night for about $60, and it is the cheapest you will get downtown. From the hotel we were able to walk downtown no problem and the St Louis Arch, as it is no more than a mile away. We didn't really feel too safe on this end of town though, not sure if I'd walk through...

Overall, I was very weary of my stay here. I was reading the reviews, was just kind of in disbelief of things that were said.
