Cleaning

3 out of 5
by
Posted Feb 20, 2017
We got 4 rooms during our stay. 3 were pretty good, at least no complaints voiced to me from the people who were with us. But one room had poop sitting in the toilet and the bathroom had hair everywhere in it. There was also hair in one of the beds of that room. Had it not been for that, it would have been a great stay.

Most rude front desk staff I've ever encountered.

2 out of 5
by from Wyandotte, OK
Posted Dec 6, 2016
The two members of the staff working at the front desk were both rude and sarcastic to myself and another hotel guest. The other guest was asking directions to a conference room and was told to "just go straight down that hall, its right there". When the guest replied that there were lots of doors on both sides of the hall the staff member repeated the directions with an eye roll, and pointed to the right. No smiles, not a hint of professional politeness, just a clear attitude of being annoyed that someone was asking a question. I question her abilities to work the front desk if she can't direct a guest with "right and left". The clerk checking me in was also rude while giving directions to my room, and when I asked about parking (I had already driven through the packed lot) I was told with a sigh that my key would open any outside door. Yes, I know that. My question was asked because there was an event at the hotel, and an attached restaurant both of which were taking up ALL the spots. I incorrectly assumed they could tell me a place near my room or something! Again, he was acting annoyed that I had asked a question. I am not a sensitive easily offended person. These two need educated in professionalism, or a new job. There was zero need for such treatment of a paying hotel guest who had just walked in the door! What a first impression! Room: cold tile floor. Tiny bathroom.

Nice Location, Handy Highway access!

5 out of 5

Posted Sep 17, 2016
Pros: Good food, and shopping nearby. Model Contest we participated in was in the same location. Everything in the room worked fine. Plentiful ice.
Cons: Corporate discount for my budding Company?
Location: Good food, shopping, re-supply. Close to Mark Twain Hobby Center. Not far from the McDonnell/Douglas/Boeing Plant.
I've never stayed in a Motel with friendlier staff. We sat out back, on the pic-nic table where the employees take their breaks, to smoke and have drinks, and they shared their treasured private space, with my Crew and I, most generously. The room was nice, but it had a weird scent (They had just painted the pool) The Shower was awesome, the beds were soft, and access was easy! I had a little difficulty with my roll-away cot. (See Pict's.) Thanks to James, Antwone, and Ricky. Our Maids were also a lot of fun.

Excellent pools and jacuzzi

5 out of 5
by from Chicago
Posted Aug 17, 2016
Pros: Very nice pools and jacuzzi
Cons: No complimentary breakfast, although there is a restaurant within the hotel.
Location: It is roughly a 15 minute drive to downtown St. Louis.
There is an outdoor and indoor pool, along with an indoor jacuzzi that holds around 10 people. It was very nice. The rooms were clean and the water hot, along with very firm beds. The TV was very big as well. The hotel is definitely out of the city, so a car is needed to explore St. Louis. It is around a 15 minute drive to the downtown area.

Dear Chris, Thank you for taking the time to write a review in regards to the recent stay with us. Our hotel is only minutes away from downtown where you can see great professional baseball, visit the Arch and see the mighty Mississippi; which makes for great little day excursions with family & friends. I also wanted to let you know we have a fantastic little breakfast restaurant here in the hotel called the T-Bird Cafe. We also are welcoming to our family of restaurants the Twisted Tree steakhouse which is now open We look forward to welcoming you back real soon. Thanks again, Terris Cooper General Manager

Just ok...

Pools were nice, hot tub was way too hot! 1st room we were in was humid to the point of a card getting soft with moisture, maintenance addressed it promptly but when we got back to the room later it was the same, staff politely moved us to another room which wasn't as bad but still muggy, air conditioning seems to need some updates or improvement throughout. Cleanliness was acceptable but could also use a little improvement. The best thing I can say about it was the helpful staff.

Food from a previous guest was in the bedside drawer. So check your room. But the hotel itself is friendly, lively, and great-looking.
