Some friends and I stayed here two nights while we were on a road trip through St. Louis. We just needed a place close to downtown that wasn't expensive. We booked through a 3rd party site and had no issues checking in. A nice lady named Jay was working the night desk. We had a non smoking room but I...

What a horrid "inn"! We've stayed at ABVI's before and they were amazing. Not this one! The only thing it has going for it is nice staff. The room smelt of cigarettes which was sickening. The paint in the bathroom was peeling and mouldy. There was some sort I dried fluid running down the back of the bathroom door. The...

Hotel very simple need some restoration. Staff is efficient. Internet conettion is slow and sometimes works and sometimes no. Its great advantage is be located near the gateway arch and St Louis Downtown.

The place looks like something from Twiglight Zone - booked on line as no other accommodation in St. Lewis was available - we could smell it as soon as we got out of the car. The room was facing the motorway and had a badly fitted door which muffled no outside noise - it was like sleeping rough in a...

The outside of the hotel looked a little bit scary when we first pulled up. We were in town for the Monster Truck Show which was right across the street from this hotel. The rooms were what would be expected and the staff accommodated the fact that we wanted rooms right next to each other. The walls were thin but...

The property is old but the staff are trying. The rooms on the river side are much quieter. Some rooms are more updated than others. They serve a free continental breakfast but it is very basic.
