If you are looking for alternative accommodations for The Downstream, well this is definitely NOT it. My wife and I decided to spend our 20th anniversary in Joplin, MO and catch the Bill Engval show at the Downstream Casino, but we found out that they had no rooms available at the casino (booked up solid 6 months in advance). We searched the area on-line and we we're so pleased to find out that had a Hilton not far from the casino. Being this was our 20th wedding anniversary, we didn't mind spending a little more for one of the highest rated brands in the world.
The outside of the hotel looked exactly like all the other hotels in the area, so there's really nothing to report there, seen one, seen them all.
There wasn't nothing more accommodating there than you would get get at Supper 8, Holiday Express, Baymount Inn, etc. other than the furniture was upscale, really nice fire place and sitting area. But no restaurant or bar.
The worst ever. Completely rude, any information we "needed" such as where our room was, breakfast accommodations, etc. had to b pulled out of her as if she really just wanted to be doing something else or be somewhere else, anywhere but there. I believe her name was Ashley, but don't quote me on that. By the way, $9.00 for a breakfast that would normally be part of the accommodations if you stayed anywhere else.
Our biggest mistake was not making sure there was a shuttle to the casino from the hotel. We had no intention of driving back after a fun filled night of comedy, fine dining and gambling. Well guess what, no shuttle. Expect to pay $70.00 round trip just to go 4 miles with the only cab service (no meter) if you plan on being responsible and letting someone else take the wheel.
Oh my god was it small, very small. The beds where extremely comfortable, great pillows (seems petty, but pillows are important to me) Small flat screen TV, limited channels. This is a no frills, standard run of the mill middle class at best hotel. Don't expect anything more than that.
We did find out later that there is a shuttle, but you have to stay at the La Quinta Inn next door.
P.S. The Downstream was really nice, great show, very nice casino. Eat at the Red Oak, the Prime Rib was insane, but it's not Vegas.
