I can't even tell you how pleased we were with this hotel and the staff. First, I had to be moved to another room as the thermostat in my booked room was not working. I was accommodated quickly and easily. Second, we chose to dine in the restaurant and met the friendliest wait staff I have ever encountered. Jamaal, Cheyenne...

We had the opportunity to stay at this hotel for the State FFA Convention. The young lady at the front desk was fast and efficient with checking us in. Later that evening we asked for directions to our student debate location on the University of Missouri campus. She was able to give us accurate directions as well as provide us...

First of all, the building and rooms are very nice. The staff is very nice. But they seemed a little short handed. The breakfast was an above average hotel breakfast, but there was only one waitress. She was very good, but definitely spread too thin. The coffee urn in the lobby was empty and it was a bit difficult to...

This hotel appears new on the outside when you drive up to it; but I think it may be a bit older and recently renovated. It was easy to access off the interstate, and was about a 10 -15 minute drive to the Missouri Rec Center where our event was being held. The hotel was crowded the two nights we...

I came to town for business and picked Holiday Inn because generally Holiday Inn is a constant much like McDonalds, or at least that is what I thought. The room was on the second floor and the hotel appeared to be empty so I thought it should not be a problem as someone probably would not be above me. Pros:...

Large comfy bed, nice friendly and helpful staff, delicious and well priced meals. They even made an unscheduled van trip to the airport for us after delays. There is also a Jimmy John's across the road. Thank you

Hotel is clean and well kept. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is not included which is disappointing for the price of the rooms and being a premium member. There is no snack counter/cupboard where you can charge to the room

This hotel was comfortable and quiet. I didn't have time to use the gym or pool so I can't comment on this. They do have a restaurant on site, but again we didn't have the time. The room was clean and I like the shower vs a bathtub.

I truly enjoy my stay when I stay here. The staff is always courteous and pleasant. The food is great. I like the breakfast and dinner at the restaurant. The bartender in the evening, is very hospitable and he does make you very comfortable. He is very friendly and helpful with the sights in town.
