    « Best Western? More like Could-be-Better Western!...ok,that was dumb,but still,it was bad! »

    Unfriendly desk staff on arrival, lots of hassle, poor air conditioning and alarm clock didn't work in room. No parking close to the building. Uncaring desk staff on departure. At least the bed was comfy and the hotel was clean. Still, i would recommend staying somewhere else where the staff care about their guests. I am a platinum rewards member with Best Western and stay at their hotels all the time, all over the country, this one was definitely sub par.

    « Fantastic »

    I love everything about the Best Western Kirkwood Inn. The entire staff is extremely friendly and helpful! My room was very large and had everything I needed and them some, not to mention it was extremely clean. The breakfast was fantastic. There was something for everyone and it was hot and fresh and plentiful.

    The staff was pleasant and eager to accommodate my needs. Our meeting room was well-stocked and perfect for our requirements. The room was clean and welcoming. I enjoyed the modern upgrades added in the lobby and meeting room since my last visit. The hotel is easy to find and close to a lot of shopping and restaurants. I will stay again!

    This is a clean & well maintained place. The staff is genuinely nice. It's in a convenient location where you have a variety of restaurants and shopping centers within walking distance. I've been coming to this hotel for over 4 years and I look forward to it.

    « Great Route 66 hotel, but noisy room »

    We stayed at the St Louis Best Western Kirkwood Inn for one night as part of our Route 66 adventure. The hotel was easy to find off I-44. The hotel was undertaking some refurbishment in the lobby while we were there but it didn't interrupt our stay and they had tucked all the scaffolding etc. away safely. The room, 300, was quite noisy. The water in the bathroom ran almost constantly (it may have been a conduit behind the wall) and the AC fans outside the room door ran all night too. The corridor was nice and cool, but we didn't sleep much! We ate in the Chili's restaurant which was quick and convenient. Good for one night. If we'd been staying longer, we would definitely have changed rooms.

    « Nice, quiet stay »

    We travel with a dog, so always happy when Best Western will accept pets, not all do.The entry to the room was on the outside which is a plus with a pet. Quiet and had good nights sleep. Friendly staff and helpful with directions to resturants.

    Near Stages Theater and one of the best steak houses in St. Louis, Citizen Kanes. Also the Magic House in Kirkwood. Our room was very quiet. Loddy is under renovation and will be beautiful.

    Hotel is close to Kirkwood DT. Only about 15 miles from downtown St Louis. Very active shopping and plenty of restaurants around hotel. Nice access to expressway, safe area. Comes with a decent breakfast selection. Room is spacious and clean, nothing special, smaller TV. Price was OK for the area.

    « Cobwebs, clogged shower drain and poor breakfast »

    Traveling with kids and dog. Check in was okay, but the staff was not helpful when asked where I could walk my dog. The woman who checked me in simply said there is grass right outside the sliding glass door, or you could walk it around the parking lot. In the middle of summer? Hmmm. . . seems like the dogs pads will get burned. Pool was great and by all appearances was clean and well cared for, but did not have towels stocked. (This was the best part of our stay). I would have rated this hotel poor, but the pool was great. And Dunkin' Doughnuts in the same parking lot saved breakfast! The room at first seemed clean. But the corners by the ceiling had huge cobwebs and the drain in the shower did not drain properly leaving you to stand in 2-3 inches of filth as you showered. It is hard to believe that the shower was properly cleaned and the drain issue went un-noticed. When I asked the front desk if someone could come clear the clog, they said they would send someone down, soon. 30 minutes later, I asked again. She said she would send another woman down with a plunger. A plunger? You can't clear a shower clog with a plunger. Of course it didn't work. The only offer I got was to move us to another room. (It was 9:00). With the dog kennel set up, and 2 kids already in bed I declined, but suggested they have someone walk across the parking lot to the Lowes behind them and buy a drain snake, or weasel to keep at the hotel. I have a feeling there were more clogged drains than just mine. When I declined the room, the front desk employee said, "I will be sure to tell the day crew, okay?" Really? You might tell the manager to better train his/her staff, as well. The next day, I went to the breakfast area to "scope" out the food. I left thinking "thank God there are other options outside the hotel" because the food looked like it had seen more than one day in the serving pans.

    This was a very nice motel even though I was leery of a high rise building. The staff overall was very attentive and nice. The swimming pool was well-maintained. The breakfast room staff was excellent and very friendly. They need a tip container for the ladies.

    « Impressed for a first time BW use. »

    This was the first time we have tried BW as a Hotel Brand. When choosing it , we immediately liked its location (just 20 minutes from St.Louis--and its direct access to highway) and also liked the proximity of all shops and restaurants close buy. The area is a great area to stay in if your driving. It has free parking on -site and a great outdoor poll (well kept and spacious 3 to 9ft deep end) The hotel is well kept and clean. Considering the lobby and ground floor were undergoing renovations(almost completed) while we were there, one would not notice it, for it was all under control. We made use of the laundry room . It has a washer and dryer (which work perfectly). Their breakfast room is well located on 2nd floor and the breakfast offered is very good. We particularly liked our room on 6th.floor with a small balcony. Beds are very comfortable and all is clean). All items in room were in perfect working order (TV, WI-FI, bathroom, lights, etc.). The staff was very gracious (from Front-Desk to Housekeeping). This was a great first impression for this Hotel brand. We will consider it and seek it for future travels. Thank you to all at the BW Kirkwood Inn, for making our stay in St.Louis an enjoyable one.

    « Lobby Renovations »

    I took my father on a trip to st louis for the weekend and we stayed at the kirkwood inn, I was veryyyyyy concerned on how things would go because He is picky and when I seen the lobby I thought uh ohh..but we got to our rooms and he thoroughly enjoyed his room was clean and he had no complaints about noise...SUCCESS! lol but really it was nice we ate at the chilis located on 2nd floor , that was also very pleasant, There is also a PUB that is very clean and awesome big screen TVs to watch Olympics. The breakfast was the only minor complaint I had, it was 9:15 when I left my room to go eat and the ladies were bringing like one cup of eggs, 6 biscuits ( I had 2), they were super hard, and small handful of the microwave bacon which ran out in 5 mins, also the pancake maker said "call distributor for assistance"..very strange they knew it was out but one just stood around watching people. Thankfully there was cereal, yogurt, toast, milk. None of the staff seemed stressed or over worked though, they even have night time hskp so if you need help with something they are there. They have small Balconies with each room for fresh air! and the pool is large and clean. Walmart next door, good restaurants, Not once did I feel unsafe ---

    Very good value. Lobby recently renovated. Nice facility, friendly staff. Many chain stores (Target, Walmart, Hobby Lobby, etc) and restaurants nearby. Can visit bar and restaurant without going outside. Convenient to St Louis attractions. Grandchildren loved the pool. I've stayed in many Best Westerns, and this is one of the best.

    « Ball game stay »

    Wife booked us a room for my surprise birthday to the cardinals game. Hotel was clean. Breakfast was amazing! Bed & pillows were super comfortable. Room was spacious. Shower was big and towels and toiletries was better than standard. Cold Fridge and microwave. Coffee pot not great but hotel room pots rarely are. Coffee at breakfast bar was very good. Didn't get to use pool or exercise room but they looked nice. Right off freeway for easy access to game. About 15 miles south of Busch Stadium

    « Best Western Kirkwood, MO »

    When checking in the three employees present at the time seemed more interested in counting money or other activities than serving check in customers. The breakfast, while offering a wide variety of items, had numerous items that were out by 8:30. This included orange juice, pancake mix, french toast, water, etc. Perhaps when this hotel is finished with remodeling it will be a much better place, but it will take a revamping of staff also.

    « Great Place to Staay on Family Vacation »

    Very family friendly atmosphere. Nice, clean, and comfortable rooms with little to no noise from the hallway. Easy access from the interstate and nearby to the places we wanted to visit. The staff was very friendly. The breakfast selections were plentiful and of good quality. No one left for the day still being hungry. The pool was fun for the kids. No whirlpool or hot tub here though. Rates were competitive for the area. We enjoyed our stay at this location and would recommend this hotel to other families visiting the Saint Louis area.

    « Great for meeting basic needs and getting some sleep. »

    Best Western is an every-day brand and it met the expectations that it sets out to. That said, this particular property was the same price as a local IHG property (I think it was a Holiday Inn of sorts) that typically offers more of a sense of luxury for the same rate. The staff were friendly. The room was large and mostly clean, but dated and definitely ready for some renovation or upgrades. The beds were a nice size and we slept well, but those mattresses could be updated too. They are working to renovate the lobby so kudos to them, but if we hadn't been recommended to stay here as part of a group reservation, it would never have been my first choice. No late checkout option. We got a safe bed to sleep in and AC that worked. In that sense, our expectations were met. This is the perfect place for an overnight rest if you're not seeking amenities and just need to pull off the road and get some sleep.

    « My ballpark choice »

    The Kirkwood Best Western is my choice when I drive to St. Louis for a Cardinals game. Driving 6 hours from Oklahoma, it's just off the first exit past 270 and 3 exits from the Metrolink. Ride the Metro for 5 dollars a person round trip to the ballpark. Breakfast is good the next morning. Pool is convenient if I want.

    « Excellent Stay »

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Kirkwood Inn. The hotel was VERY quiet! Our room was very clean which something that we always are super picky about. The bed was really comfortable. We also ate at the adjoining Chili's and used the 10% discount the hotel gave us. It was really great to be able to walk through the hotel to a nice restaurant instead of having to drive after a long day of traveling.

    Yes, the lobby is being renovated but it didn't interfere with our check-in or moving about the hotel. Stayed here with my family for two nights. The hotel was very quiet, room was clean, the beds were comfortable, our breakfast was great. Several restaurants and shopping were all within walking distance. Great location being close to the highway and we got to all of our destinations within 30 minutes. We enjoyed the pool and the discounts we got at the restaurants, would stay here again if we ever come back to visit.

    « Fantastic people work at this hotel »

    After a horrible experience at another hotel we called Best Western to see if they had a room available for us. Michael at the front desk was so helpful, getting us booked in a room and answering all of our questions. We had positive experiences with so many hotel staff members, thanks to everyone. Our room was clean and in good condition. The breakfast was well maintained with quiet a few options, additionally it was really convenient to have a restaurant/bar on site. The hotel is located within walking distance of Wal-Mart (it's across the parking lot) and several other shops and restaurants. We had a great experience and we recommend this hotel to anyone!

    « Old, run down, over priced and unsafe. »

    This place is a mess. The lobby is undergoing a face lift but the rooms need it more. The service needs to be more pleasant and responsive and security needs to be tighter. I was verbally accosted multiple times when I arrived in the early morning hours of July 16th by three men in front of the hotel...and the front clerk did nothing. I was awoken, after getting in at 2:30am, at 8am by loud screaming and yelling by young teenagers from a tour group running up and down the halls and shouting to each other, and this was even while I was wearing earplugs...an experience that was repeated that night at 10pm. The room was musty and old and the rug was sticky. The sheets were rough and uncomfortable and the bed was broken down. This was not even close to what I would expect for a Best Western or at this price point. It was awful.

    2
    « Not Worth the Money »

    I would rate the quality of this hotel in the $65-$85 price range. At $125, I felt it wasn't worth it. The mattress was old and soft, with a dip in the middle which I kept rolling into. The breakfast was not at good as others I have experienced. For instance, they advertise fresh fruit, but only offered apples and oranges. The food was not very good either. On the other hand, the staff was very friendly and courteous, and the hotel was very quiet.

    « Affordable comfort in a convenient location »

    I'm actually from Kirkwood, MO (where this Best Western is located) but recently relocated out-of-state. I needed to return to St. Louis for business and decided to give this hotel a try. I am glad I did. Located within walking distance of Target, Walmart, TJ Maxx, Sports Authority and several fast food and eat-in restaurants (Sonic, Chipotle, Dunkin Donuts, Chili's and more), this hotel offers free parking with convenient highway access and provides a surprisingly spacious and quiet room. Room darkening curtains make for restful sleep. Bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. Room was clean and each room has a sliding glass door and balcony. There is a blow dryer in the bathroom, a mini refrigerator, a coffee maker and safe in each room. Television reception was excellent. There is a swimming pool, free wifi, complimentary breakfast, and a business center for printing boarding passes. Staff was friendly and welcoming and accommodated my request for a room away from vending machines and elevator noise. The only reason I didn't give a five star rating is because towels are a bit thin, toiletries provided so-so, and I didn't see a recycling bin in the room (so not sure if this hotel recycles). Definitely recommend and would not hesitate to stay here again.

    « This hotel does not understand that they are in the hospitality business. »

    On June 23, 2016 I called them at 10:15am. We needed an immediate check-in for a family emergency involving child endangerment. We explained this to the hotel. They had a room, but early check-in was not available. I reserved the room, explaining if I could find other accommodations I would call back. I was able to find other accommodations (with an immediate email confirmation and early check-in). At 10:28am, I called Best Western Kirkwood back (I have these records on my phone), and the representative answering remembered having just spoken to me. She said, "OK, I'll cancel it for you". I do not remember her giving me a cancellation number. Subsequently, Best Western Kirkwood told me that, unlike other hotels, they do not send email follow-ups for reservations or cancellations by phone. I just received my credit card statement with a charge for one night's stay. I called Best Western Kirkwood and the representative took a detailed report and said someone would call me back. Today, a new representative of Best Western Kirkwood, called to say that without a cancellation number or person's name, they could not help us. Buyer beware .... If you deal with this hotel, get names, numbers, and email back-up. They are not interested in serving you otherwise. We have had to pursue this matter with Best Western Corporate because, evidently, no one is in charge at Best Western Kirkwood until Monday.

    « Great place, awesome staff!! »

    I stayed here on our last minute trip to St. Louis. Great location in a very nice area. Convenient to I-44 and halfway between downtown and Six Flags. The front desk staff was always friendly and very accommodating. Gave great recommendations on places to eat and things to do. Only knock would be not receiving any wash cloths when our room was cleaned two days in a row. But, when I called the front desk, I was brought some within the next 10 minutes each time. It is currently having some remodeling done, just in the lobby, I believe. But we never had any problems with noise or anything. Great pool for the kids. Very nice continental breakfast on 2nd floor. Hotel is also attached to a Chili's restaurant for convenience, with a Dunkin' Donuts just outside the lobby across the parking lot. Would definitely stay here again!!

    I stayed at this Best Western for two nights, and all in all my stay was very pleasant. The staff was friendly, yet professional. I'd had a problem with my credit card and they helped calm me. After clearing up the issue, I checked into my room and found it to be clean, quiet, nice and the decor pleasing to the eye - comfortable and homey. The bed was comfortable enough for me to get a decent nights sleep. It was also quiet; just what I wanted. I liked the hand held shower and decided I want one. The pool water temperature was warm and inviting. I liked the close proximity to shopping (Walmart, Target, Burlington, TJ Maxx and so on) and dining (Chillis, Texas Roadhouse, White Castle, Dunkin Donuts and so on)and the fact it's on the public transportation line. I highly recommend staying here and will do so the next time I go to St. Louis. Very nice hotel

    Stayed at Kirkwood, Missouri Best Western. We walked in to a total disaster. They were remodeling hotel and you had to walk very cautiously. We had a problem with our room and the service desk lady was nice and gave us another room. The person that was supposed to clean the room was upset and made it seem like it was our fault. The sink was full of dirt. It is a great location. We were able to go toTarget and several other stores within walking distance. Hopefully they will address this problems.

    Close, convenient, caring are qualities that one finds in the Kirkwood Inn Best Western Hotel, St Louis. It is very close to the theatre for summer opera in the Missouri city, connection is easy by car, and the staff could not be better in its care and charm.

    The room was very dated and not what i expected. Ill just stick to my Hilton garden inns from now on. The bed also wasn't very comfortable. Breakfast was the only good thing about the stay. The internet was very slow and didnt work half the time.

    « Clean and pleasant stay »

    This was second time staying here while attending a Cardinal's ball game. It's located right off I-44 with a mall close by and plenty to eat within walking distance. Rooms are very well kept, but beds could be a little softer. The update of elevator's and lobby area didn't really detract from hotel and work areas were kept fairly clean so you didn't walk thru dirt and rubbish. Will be back again!

    « Great hotel »

    My husband and I stayed here for a mini vacation. The hotel is very clean and comfortable. It has a good breakfast as well as an on site Chili's. It also has a great bar with a friendly bartender. All the front desk staff is great and very friendly. My next trip to the games I will be staying here again.

    « Beautiful Hotel with all conveniences »

    This Best Western has it all. Beautiful lobby, nice rooms with good WiFi and comfortable beds. A bar and a Chili's Restaurant just a walk upstairs. Great breakfast and even though its just off the interstate and has a walmart, target and Lowes home improvement right in back rooms are quiet.

    First trip to St Louis. Very happy with hotel. Very clean quiet and comfortable. Location is just off interstate, making it very easy to get around. Nice breakfast. My only real negative is that the bathroom is very small. Would not deter me from returning. Staff very friendly.

    « pleasantly surprised! »

    We really enjoyed our two-night stay! Beautifull exterior, great location near restaurants & shops, lovely modern decor. Very friendly staff. Usually we stay at large Marriott or Doubletree hotels but this smaller hotel was much quieter and relaxing. The free breakfast was the best one we have experienced-hot dishes, fresh foods, very clean area.

    « On the road to Chicago »

    It's on the west side of StL, so allow for rush hour traffic if you're headed to Chicago. The room was comfortable and clean, and the Wi-Fi worked flawlessly. The 2nd fl. walkway used to lead to a funky dive restaurant, but it's now a Chili's. You get a 10% discount, but if Chili's is not to your taste, I recommend Steak and Rice, a decent Chinese restaurant 2 blocks north.

    « Clean room that was showing its age »

    The Site was a ways off the main interstates. The reservation we made on line and charged our credit card right away, and when we tried to change the booking to use the Best Western gift card the process was challenging. The main check in area was pleasant and the elevators worked well. Once in the room it showed its age in spots but overall all things worked and it was clean. The staff where friendly during our stay as needed.

    « Favorable hotel, cordial location. »

    Nice, clean, comfortable feeling hotel that has the decor of a more up scaled lodging. Hotel is conveniently located right off Rt 44 on Lindberg ave (historic Rt 66). Loved the small bar/lounge located on 2nd floor. Room was good size (bathroom a little small) with walk out balcony. King bed was very comfortable with plenty of pillows. 8 blocks north (W.Argonne Dr) there is a very popular "upscale" Pub (Billy G's) that serves great food with an outside deck. Highly recommended by the locals. 3 blocks west of the Pub is an attractive county park ( Walker Lake) with walking trails. This area of Kirkwood is a pleasant quiet section of older homes away from the bustle and traffic of the Rt 61/ Rt 44 area. This was an enjoyable stop on our way to Branson, MO.

    Had a great time. Well located in St. Louis, MO for business and pleasure. Restaurant and lounge are terrific, and Breakfast service is first class. We slept well, quiet, and shopping was within walking distance. What more could you ask?

    « Sensational service »

    Yet another great stay at a Best Western hotel. The gentleman at the front desk was professional and exceptionaly helpful, he also offered some helpful tips on places to visit in St Louis - Budweiser brewery was greatly appreciated. All aspects of the service that we received were appreciated. There is a bar and restaurant attached to the hotel. Whilst this hotel is approx 9 miles from the city it is an easy drive as the freeway is only minutes down the road giving you easy access to Forest park and the zoo (free admittance). Great stay.

    « Lack of Customer Service »

    The hotel and room are great but the front desk person, Gladys, needs to get additional training in customer service I'm afraid. She was not friendly and never showed any concern for us, the paying guests of the hotel. And yes, I did express my feelings to Best Western in their survey.

    « Good stay »

    Hotel grounds were nice, it was cool to have a Chili's connected to the hotel. Rooms were nice and clean, bathroom was a little dated. Breakfast had a nice variety, probably the best I've seen. Staff were very friendly.

    « Great location! »

    Staying in Kirkwood was great for visiting St. Louis. It wasn't a long drive to anywhere we wanted to go. The hotel is right in the middle of a shopping center/area so there are plenty places to eat or shop. The hotel gives (unlimited) 10% discount coupons to Chili's (which is attached to the hotel) and Texas Roadhouse which is just across the parking lot. We ate at both of these and enjoyed Chili's best, but our favorite place is O'Charley's which is also across the parking lot next to Dunkin Donuts. We had some trouble with the baby crib and our door lock and the front desk was very quick to send someone to fix these issues. The breakfast buffet was nice and clean, but was missing a few things. The first day they had scrambled eggs and a potato hash, but the other days it was just an egg patty and sausage patty. Each day they had biscuits and gravy and make your own pancakes with some interesting toppings that they kids liked. They were missing waffles and cut up fruit (they only had apples, bananas, & oranges). We got plenty to eat so we really shouldn't complain. Would definitely stay again.

    « Ants In the Bathroom »

    The staff during check-in were very friendly and accommodating. I thought this location was very convenient to restaurants and the highway, and that was a plus for me. Overall this hotel was fine until I recognized the ants crawling all over the bathroom the morning I was checking out (I only stayed one evening). When I reported it to the front desk they told me they would get right on it, but I was leaving so it didn't really mattered. There were no apologies for such a disgusting experience, so I know where not to stay next time.

    « Best Western Is the Best »

    From now on I will always seek out Best Western. From start to finish, smooth as silk. Enjoyable. Reassuring. Can't recommend more highly. Exceptional cordiality. Efficiency beyond compare. No complaints whatsoever in any way, shape or form.

    « One night for business trip »

    The Best Western in Kirkwood was clean and the employees were attentive. The hotel could use an upgrade for sure. My bed was lumpy but sheets were clean. Cheaper than the nearby Hampton Inn. Wouldnt be my choice always but not bad if you want to save a few bucks. Oh, breakfast was good but smaller selection than some hotels.

    « I do not understand this question »

    Great stay, great room great staff hotel looked fine nice carpets in the hall. The only improvement would be the size of the bathroom ours was very small and hard to get two people in and out of it. The breakfast was ok not the may favorite. We did not eat in the Chili's but it smelled great. The location was fine and easy to find.

    « Enjoyed ourselves »

    Great friendly staff, great location, good parking, clean rooms and comfortable beds. We were choosing between this one and another hotel nearby and we are happy that we chose this one and would stay here again. Good rates. Out of St. Louis downtown but we took a Uber and were there in 10 min.

    « Clean, friendly, convenient »

    First impression is everything. The entry is gorgeous and Andrea at the front desk is a doll! She was so pleasant to our family and that is added value! Our room was noce. This isn't a super new hotel, but it has new furnishing and paint. Hot breakfast, attached Chili's, and heated swimming pool. Also right next door to target, walmart, and dunkin donuts! Great for families. We were traveling with 2 kids and one in a wheelchair. Accessible bathroom is not very big, so don't expect lots of space there. The room has enough space for wheelchair. Comes with a fridge! It is not extravagant, but we would definitely stay here again.

    « Be aware: smoke-friendly, not smoke-free »

    Hotel claims to be smoke-free. We were disappointed with strong cigarette smoke smells in our room, halls and from outside our patio door (on 4th floor). Hotel claims to be smoke-free but hosted local Pipe Club, who posted paper ads on elevator walls to sell pipes and smoke smells came into our room from hallway very strongly which disturbed our sleep and gave us headaches. Then someone sprayed very strong air freshener which we could smell in our room. After our complaint, manager reimbursed our room and said the Pipe Club would not be allowed to return next year, but local ordinances DO allow smoking on each room's balcony. Also, lots of noisy cars revving motors and driving on heavy traffic street outside.

    « Nice atmosphere, welcoming. »

    This hotel falls into my affordable and good value category and to be honest they are punching above their weight. The staff are friendly and welcoming and there is a generally friendly feel about the hotel. The room was comfortable, the buffet breakfast was OK. The gym is small but is well equipped and again ? has a nice feel about it. Would I go back ? yes.

    I highly recommend this hotel if you are in the Kirkwood area. I needed a hotel close to the facility where my mom is receiving care and this Best Western is within a short car ride away. So close to shopping, attractions, interstates, airport and quaint Kirkwood.

    « Nice Stay close to everything »

    We stayed here after a long trip from Detroit, Michigan. This place is very nice. The room was clean and quiet. They offer a 10% discount for Chili's Restaurant next ti the hotel which was excellent to eat at. We liked this place a lot and would stay here again. One of the better Best Westerns !

    I typically stay here when I go to St. Louis for a Cardinal game, but this trip was different. I wanted to get a jump on the weather for my return home after visiting family for Christmas.

    « Average, with friendly staff. »

    I stayed here with my daughter last weekend, and it was fine. The room and bathroom were both clean, and the woman at the front desk was very sweet. (She went out of her way to speak to my talkative 3-year-old). The hot breakfast is not great, and the sleeping situation was not very comfortable because of huge pillows and extremely light blankets. Instead we turned up the heat. The rooms all have no smoking signs but someone was clearly smoking in their room. We didn't complain about it because we didn't spend much time there. It was an average stay. The price was very good. In a pinch, we would stay here again.

    « OK »

    It was OK. The location was really the best part. Although quite a bit farther from downtown than we expected, it turned out to be quite alright. The room was pretty nice, but it didn't have a microwave in the room.

    Just need to fix bathroom sink - plug was not attached, would not hold water. If you did get the plug in to hold water, you could not get it out! You could hear people in other rooms - walls must not be insulated well. Comfortable bed, nice clean room, good breakfast, pleasant personnel.

    These rooms are very small. Bathroom has a shelf over the toilet and sink next to it, no room for anything. Should be priced under a hundred, not over.
