Rooms was clean and wifi very good. Coffee and apple juice available all day and continental breakfast in the morning. Staff was excellent at giving directions and offering helpful suggestions. When internet went down, front desk was on it immediately and had it back up and running quickly. Rooms had small fridge and micro-wave.

My wife and I, and our Son just recently (2016) stayed at this location. Maybe the price that we were charged was because we had pets, but it was outrageous. The room was not very clean, didn't have a refrigerator or microwave, and of all things, the room didn't even offer a portable coffee pot. I'm retired military and our... More

Some friends and I stayed here two nights while we were on a road trip through St. Louis. We just needed a place close to downtown that wasn't expensive.

What a horrid "inn"! We've stayed at ABVI's before and they were amazing. Not this one! The only thing it has going for it is nice staff. The room smelt of cigarettes which was sickening.

The place looks like something from Twiglight Zone - booked on line as no other accommodation in St. Lewis was available - we could smell it as soon as we got out of the car.
