Excellent location for seeing sights in Hannibal, especially if you have an interest in Mark Twain. Staff is very courteous, and attentive. Hotel is very clean, with a nice hot breakfast to start a day.

Our room was exactly as we expected it to be. We stayed at the back of the hotel as others thought the trains were too loud on the front. Our room was very quiet. This hotel is within walking distance of the Mark Twain attractions downtown and also right across the street from the visitor's center.

Parking is a problem, very limited. Entrance area is only one car wide. Meal: eggs were not hot, Milk was sour and OJ was weak. We complained and we received a fresh milk, and the OJ was refilled. Bed was comfortable, room was quiet, and staff was extra helpful and friendly. . Clean and nice decorations. The were painting the...

Clean and good comfortable bed and pillows. Easy access to food and attractions. Back rooms of the hotel would be the quietest, we were on the bottom floor in the corner and not any issues with being disturbed. Would stay there again if in the area.

A great hotel. VERY clean, the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. We didn't use the pool, but it looked nice with chairs placed around the perimeter. The complimentary breakfast was wonderful. The selection had something for everyone. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again. We asked for a river view room and they were able to accommodate us.

This would be an amazing stay for couples. When I went with !y family, we were lucky enough to have a river facing room. That night there was a full moon and the view was gorgeous. Very romantic. Ask for a river facing room. Nice staff, close to everything. Diner across the street. Indoor pool and hot tub.

This hotel isn't on the river but you can actually see the Mississippi from your room if it's facing the street. It's just a short walk down the road to see all the nicely done buildings and museums dedicated to Mark Twain. The hotel has a pool and hot tub inside it's fully covered "court yard". The trains that are...

The Best Western isn't right on the river, but it is close enough. Located just up the street from Tom Sawyer's boyhood home, it is perfectly situated as a base for walking around and seeing the sights of downtown. Our room was quite comfortable even though we faced the street. It was well insulated from sound; we only heard the...

If you are in the Hannibal area for fun, this is the place for you! Centrally located near all the Mark Twain activities and shops of downtown, this is a walk away from it all. Across the street from Mark Twain Dinette, it is right on the main drag. Clean, good staff, quiet and a great view of the Mississippi...

We stayed overnight here on our trip down the Great River Road. I booked it online. It was very easy to find. Signs pointed directly to it. At checkin I asked if we had a room with a River view and they had already put with a great one on the corner of the hotel. This was awesome as we...
