Our room had 2 queen beds and plenty of furniture, including a desk, good TV, microwave, and refrigerator. The room was very clean and in good repair, except for the shower (more about that later). The mattress was extremely firm, but we slept fairly well. The motel is near the road and we could hear the traffic, but during our... More

While this is not Drury Inn it is clean quiet and beds were comfortable. Owners are friendly and very helpful. Outside lacks curb appeal and rooms were a little musty but we lit some candles and really enjoyed our stay. We will def stay again if in the area. Restaurant next door is under new ownership--closed while we were here... More

I stayed in the Jacuzzi Suite with my family and it was amazing. Very nice people the room was very clean. I will definitely go back. Plus they gave us a military discount because of us being military. The view from our room was beautiful. There are great restaurants near by. Lots of things to do and see.

My wife and I and our 19 yr old son stayed here from August 18 through 21st. The hotel as mentioned before is really just a motel. It is clean and the pool is kept very well. The room was fine. When I spend $84 a night for a motel I would expect just a bit more than fine. The... More

Our family of five stayed here two nights and had two rooms. This was a great value for us, however we considered this a motel rather than hotel, with outside entrances to each room. Some might be concerned with having an actual key rather than key card, but we liked having our car right outside our room, and the pool... More

This is one of those on-the-road finds you look for. In the middle of a beautiful valley, this family-run motel is clean, straightforward, friendly, and well-priced. In the middle of the summer, the pool was the place to be. And it's so close to many different outdoor attractions. I'd stay again the next time I'm traveling anywhere near St. Louis.

I was traveling through the area and needed a place to stay for the night. I stopped at the Ft. Davidson Hotel and I'm glad I did. I was told that there was just one other place to stay in town so I didn't expect much. But, to my surprise it was a nice little place. The room was nice,... More

Our room was very small but very clean. The price was $81 plus the taxes which seems a little high for an older place like this but being it is the only place in town and nearly sold out I guess it was fair. The pool water was also very clean although it was too crowded when all the guests... More

Price and service were excellent. Front desk workers were helpful in giving us directions to our local destinations. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Kids enjoyed the pool area. Be advised restaurant is closed on Wednesday.

This is one of the cleanest motels I have stayed in. I would call it a motel because there are no hallways and one level. Shower had great pressure. Rooms were fairly quiet. Restaurant on site was very good and I would eat there every meal. Motel allows pets for $15 a day, and it was worth it.
