Not a very good place for the business traveler. Internet service is suspect, at best. I would not stay at the hotel again if I have a choice. Front desk personal were nice and cooperative. Upon check out the clerk at the desk was overwhelmed with people wanting to check out at the same time. I didn't even wait for a receipt, just dropped my key and left.

Booked this hotel as we needed a place to stay for one night on our way across the country. I don't have many nice things to say. This property is dated, tired and smells like a perfumed ashtray. The walls were so thin I heard the man in the adjacent room yawn, ugh.

I booked this room looking for a budget room but that doesn't mean I wanted a spot in need of renovations and upgrades. Yes, the lobby area has seen a bit of an upgrade but that's about it. And, this is a BW Plus property... hmmmm, I don't think so.

Last, it would appear this property appeals to families as it was crawling with them. So, perhaps, if you are traveling with the kiddos, you would find the hotel more enjoyable.

Next time I find myself in St Louis, I'll find a different hotel.

I'm sorry to hear that you did not like the appearance of our hotel. We take great pride in how we look and in fact just completed a renovation of every room last August. We will use your feedback to look at ways to improve in the future.

We reserved 2 rooms on-line, and had no trouble at check in. Rooms were clean, hotel was clean. Overall appearance of this hotel was very nice. There were suppose to be microwaves in the rooms, at least that is what we expected, but, neither of our rooms had a microwave, which ended up not being an issue. The location of this hotel is excellent and very accessible from the highway. There are a couple of shops and places to eat, also right by the hotel, so, you could eat pretty much anything and prices varied, which is also very nice. Old St. Charles was only minutes away, and that is also very benificial. Only thing I wish this hotel had was ajoining rooms. Since there were 8 of us traveling together, we would have liked and used this option a lot and not had to run back and forth across the hall. We didn't encounter any noise from any other people staying in the hotel and no noise from the highway.

Positive: Good location right by Bass Pro and down the street from Ameristar and historic downtown. Clean lobby and pool area. Breakfast was delicious! Beds were pretty comfortable. Amber? at the front desk was very friendly at check in! Great sound proofing! In the hall you could hear the TV next door but we heard nothing in our room.

Negatives: Smoking floor windows do not open; Breakfast area didn't have enough seating for the amount of rooms in the hotel; dried toothpaste on our sink; we registered online at best western for a room rate that with taxes, etc included was $119. When we went to check out they said the room rate was $119 and added taxes and fees including a "room in safe" fee we had to ask to have removed.

We were in town for a soccer tournament and spent one night at this hotel. It is in a great location with several restaurants near by ( some even within walking distance). The room and hotel were clean, the beds comfortable, and the breakfast was good with plenty of choices. Sarah at the front desk granted our request to check in early, so much appreciated! We would stay here again if ever visiting in the area.

We were traveling to other places in Missouri and spent our first night here. Great location just off the interstate and just outside the St Louis metro area. Easy parking and loved the covered walkway as it was raining when we arrived and left.

On two occasions, the staff accused my kids of actions which in fact they did not do. Also, on one occasion they went so far as going to them and threatening them to call the police for actions when in fact these actions were being done by kids down the hall. And we were never notified by hotel staff prior to these actions taking place.

Please accept our apology with regards to your stay. We strive to give our guests a comfortable and quiet stay while here. If your kids did not cause the disruption we were investigating then I sincerely regret any actions that were taken. We will take steps with our staff to ensure that this type of thing does not occur in the future.
