We parked the car when we arrived and didn't use it during the entire visit. The hotel is in easy walking distance of the Trolley tour, the boat tour, the Tom Sawyer house and Mark Twain museum, and all downtown shops and restaurants. Super easy to get around and find things. We had a room on the third floor with...

This motel is very clean and roomy. All components are in good repair and functional. We had a room on the second floor which is very quiet. The rates are reasonable. It is located within walking distance to the old historic downtown. A nice cafe is located across the street. There is a pool and hot tub included.

This is a great destination or travel stop for families with children. friendly, relatively inexpensive, easy walk to Mark Twain Museum and riverfront. Close to restaurants. Indoor pool and hot tub are clean. Breakfast is exceptionally well done.

Just stayed here two weeks ago. I'm a regular to the area and to this hotel because business related matters. I was pleasantly surprised to see this hotel has acquired and conditioned a new building across the street. The rooms in this new building are awesome. Big, wide and comfy rooms with brand new everything inside them. The staff as...

First of all, when you say it's on the river, it should be on the river. It is not and you could hardly see it from our room. We were in the old section on the second floor overlooking the pool. Very noisy and would have been great if you had kids. There was a St Patrick's party group that...

Beware of the noisy hotel room doors closing around you. These door closings were loud and kept waking us up. Beware that trains are constantly moving through the town, blowing their loud horns. I am surprise we were not told of these things. I am surprised that the renovations the hotel had completed did not take these problems into consideration...

Great experience overall but we requested hand grab bars for our elderly parent. The room we were given was handicap accessible but was missing grab bars. If you need a room specifically for grab bars by the toilet you should call to make a reservation instead of doing it online.

The shining star was the night manager (Jeffy) was super nice, friendly, helpful, and polite. Unfortunately, this hotel is a 2. I don't know how it got the 4 1/2 rating. Lobby reeks of chlorine and smoke. Shower handle came off in our hand. Leaks in ceiling (2 places), hair in "clean" towels and washcloths, air conditioner in pieces in...

A very good family experience. We were so happy the staff met our family needs of rooms facing the river and rooms close or next to each other. 😀 The only thing we would change is breakfast sausage. We prefer bacon

Came across this little gem after almost ignoring it. Assumed it would be too expensive. Wrong! Great view of the river. Beautiful pool area. Very nice breakfast. Very friendly staff! Hope to make it a yearly stop on our way home wintering in Florida.
