Me and my fiance switched rooms 5 times in a 2 night booked stay. Night one we switched because our non smoking room reaked of smoke. It was coming from the vent inside of the bathroom. The front desk said that there was nobody next to us, or below us. Which means that the ventilation system is so full of...

The picture of this place is not what you will see when you arrive. Filthy rooms, kicked-in doors, and not safe at all!! My family checked in and checked out within hours. We never slept there and would never recommend it!!

We stayed here for 3 nights. I chose this hotel because of its proximity to the Edgar Jones Dome. Turns out its closer to the dome than I thought ~ literally right across the street! Its also within walking distance of the Laclede's Landing (a great place for bars and restaurants) and the Gateway Arch. The rooms need attention and...

While in town for one direction concert we stayed here. Location you couldn't get much better from the dome. The gentleman at the front desk was extremely nice. The rooms average. Not the cleanest but could be alot worse. If there for another concert would stay again if the prices wouldn't so high.

I don't like hotels and I don't like cities, but camp sites are hard to come by in St. Louis. After agonizing over the many, many horrible reviews here, I decided to go for it and book it anyway. I was pleasantly surprised. - The parking lot seemed about as secure as it could be in a city. We had...

This place was a joke, we stayed for four nights and were overcharged for our stay. I could have booked for less that day than what I did booking in advance and management and corporate would not honor the price. We also had no hot water on final day, housekeeping came to our room only once, a/c did not work...

I stayed in this hotel while I was driving from New York to Nevada. St. Louis itself was a midway point so we chose a hotel that was cheap enough but still close to the ballpark. We could have easily walked to the ballpark for the game. It was almost a straight shot from the hotel to Busch Stadium, but...

We stayed here as part of our Rt66 road trip. We knew we not going to spend much time in the hotel so we didn't want to spend too much money on our rooms. We had a first floor room which had a view of a breeze block wall. The rooms were spacious and clean with a big TV. There...

I have mixed emotions about this hotel. We arrived on dusk and while my partner was checking in I sat in the car. There was some sort of 'meeting' in the car park between two parties and an awful lot of rats running around. I was pleasantly surprised by the standard of the room, it was very nice but very...

I stay there a few days ago. The room was ok. The noisy level is extremely high due to the closeness of the hwy. There are no stores around the area. I would not recommended due to the lack of service
