Not good for the price

This definitely wasn't the best 100 dollar hotel I've stayed at, but it wasn't the worst. Bed was uncomfortable, there were items left from the previous residents, and the shower barely worked. Friendly staff and good service.

Thank you Charlie for your review. I'm sorry to see you could only rate us a 3 star, as we really try our best to make sure all our guests have a great and comfortable stay. If you could take the time to email me so I can find out what room you were in, this will help us determine what is wrong with the shower and bed. Thank you again for staying with us!

Smallest bathroom I'very ever seen. Poor condition. Broken exhaust fan. Ran out of toilet paper after 2nd day - not restocked. Dirty ice bucket. I'll never stay here again.

Everyone was very, very nice. Pet-friendly accommodations, made us feel welcomed. Freeway noise had to be blanked out with continuous fan. Good taxi ride into the city.

Room has a good setup though my room was a bit musky with a slight urine smell.. Otherwise clean room. Staff are nice. Breakfast not included though but food was good. Dining area pretty bland. Overall, descent hotel for a short stay.

Great location

My stay at holiday inn was a great experience. The location is central to sites around St Louis and close to the Hill area. One of the staff at the front desk, Jasmine even helped me with my tie, I couldn't get right, she tied it for me. Sounds funny but true. I will stay there again when I visit the Hill soon.

Pool was sparkling and fun for kids. Bathroom too small but clean. I was drying a swim suit on the balcony, it fell down a few floors and the staff was swift and friendly to retrieve it.

We were happy with our stay. We arrived somewhat late and left somewhat early, however the staff was very nice, the room was fine & thre was coffee available in the lobby in the morning. (We heard there were cookies in the lobby in the evening, but we missed them). Great location and more than acceptable price.

Having worked at a Holiday Inn a few years ago I was very well aware of what to expect. The Hotel staff were pretty good. They missed a few points which I doubt would of been noticed by your average customer. Nevertheless, the always remained friendly. The room was in excellent condition and passed my room inspection (Something I did for a living a few years). The location of the property is really close to great Italian restaurants which are very short driving distance.
