    « Great stay »

    I stayed here for about a week and it was a nice hotel to stay at. Amy was great, she went out her way to make us feel welcomed. The rooms and halls always smelt great. Close to the town and near the stores.

    « Friendly Mid-West »

    Everyone we encountered in the town was friendly and helpful. We had a pleasant surprise when we discovered Mark Twain Park (also his birthplace) and enjoyed the museum and grounds near our lodging. For such a small town we never found ourselves wanting for anything.

    « The Nicest Hotel in Town »

    We spent 3 nights at this hotel in April. The property is well-maintained, and very clean. The staff was amazing. The friendliest most accommodating people I had delt with in a long time. The hotel's amenities include WiFi, cable TV (must be satellite; reception was spotty), fitness room and indoor heated pool. There is a full breakfast each morning. There are only a few choices for lodging in Mexico and I would not stay anywhere but here.

    Extremely clean and modern, great facilities, nice complimentary breakfast. Unexpectedly modern and up to date in a small town. The whole facility is extremely clean and modern, the staff friendly, the rooms spacious. We are from Mexico and have stayed elsewhere but this far surpasses anything else in town and during our family visits we will stay there in the future.

    Very nice motel. Clean and had a nice smell in rooms and throughout building. Staff very friendly and let you know they were their if you needed anything. Pool water was nice and warm but pool room was cold, which staff acknowledged and suggested keeping towel close when you got out. NO hot tub or sauna room.

    Everything was VERY clean. Check in & out was good. Room had everything we needed. Good wi-fi. Breakfast buffet was pretty standard, hot things were hot & cold things were cold. Not true at every motel. Pool & fitness room were okay, wish they still had a hot tub! Good value for the money.

    « Awesome Customer Service »

    We do a lot of traveling for sporting events. I can honestly say, this was the easiest hotel to reserve with. Amy took SUCH good care of me and helped us add an extra kiddo to our room without any problems so that everyone has a comfy place to sleep! If our stay is anything like the customer service we have received just making the reservation, it's going to be awesome.

    « Average but I won't be back »

    This hotel smelled wonderful and my room was very clean so 5 stars there. Housekeeping was nice but managements and afternoon guy not so much. Maybe they were having a bad day I really don't know. Breakfast is average to slightly below average. Small breakfast area. My bed was not comfortable and I travel alot with my job. I found it odd to not have a fan in the bathroom and powerstrip extensions were used in the room for all the lamps and appliances, that seemed like a bad idea. I could hear someone's radio (the bass) at night for much longer than I cared for. For me the worst part of my stay was seriously the bed and I felt as if I had stuff crawling on me all night. By far housekeeping was the best part of this place. I'll be trying another hotel if I'm back in Mexico as this place was average at best on everything else. It just gave me a strange vibe ontop of the rude management. I really don't see how others rave about it, my first thought was it was family or friends helping them out but it's possible I just came on a bad day I guess??? Either way first impressions are important to me and I'm not impressed.

    « Friendly staff, clean rooms, and well maintained property »

    This hotel is a great option for business travel. Super simple accommodations that cover the basics very well. Pillows a bit firm, and in room heating unit a bit noisy, but it was winter during our stay.

    « Great Hotel! »

    I recently spent 10 weeks at this hotel on a business trip. Patty, Bill, and the rest of the staff were amazing! Always very professional and friendly. It's always hard to be away from home for so long, but the staff helped to make it feel like my second "home". Breakfast was always great and rooms were clean. Would highly recommend to others.

    « The Only Real Option in Mexico »

    We've stayed at a few hotels in the area before but we're pleasantly surprised with this gem! The heated pool is amazing, breakfast has a nice variety, everything was clean and their customer service is wonderfully responsive. This is now our first choice for family visits when we come back!

    « A Cubic Zirconia in the Rough »

    The check-in process was smooth with no problems and our room was nice and clean. All the staff seemed friendly and attentive to us. We would stay here again if we had to stay in Mexico, MO. We stayed in a King Suite so our room had a little extra sitting area with a table and a little love seat. There was also a refrigerator in the room. The bathroom was clean and there was an adequate number of towels for us. The king bed was pretty hard and it was fine for me but my wife found it to not be very comfortable. The fold-out bed from the love seat was not comfortable (similar to most fold-out beds). The room was warm and we had to keep the AC running even though it was cool outside. The breakfast was very good. There was a fairly large selection of hot and cold options. There was a waffle maker, sausage links, potatoes, biscuits, gravy, bread and bagels (and a toaster), and eggs. The eggs were weird disks but they were perfect for putting on a biscuit with sausage to make a breakfast biscuit. The biscuits are served at room temperature but 20 seconds in the microwave and they were perfect. I believe there were also some pastries, fruit, and cold cereal available. Drinks included apple juice, orange juice, milk, water, and coffee. I was pleasantly surprised with the breakfast. Overall, if you have to stay in Mexico, MO, then this is probably your only good choice and you shouldn't be disappointed.

    « Quite, Cozy, Clean, and Friendly »

    The staff here went above and beyond to make our stay amazing. From check-in time until we left, we experienced nothing but positive attitudes from everyone. The rooms were immaculate and extremely comfortable. This was probably the best experience that I've ever had at any hotel.

    « Small Town Gem »

    Any time I am paying under $80 a night for a room I wonder just how much I should expect from a Hotel, but this Hotel was truly great experience. The night we arrived, it was late but we still found parking close to the front desk. The Hotel staff greeted us and were efficient at check-in. We got to our room and it was clean, well stocked, and well taken care of. I saw no differed maintenance of any kind. Everything worked right, the internet and TV service was good, and the remote was sanitized and placed in a fresh cover every day, something I have never seen before, but a great touch. There were plenty of fresh towels, all fluffy and not a single item of furniture or linens seemed to show any stain, wear or tear. You could tell there was a pride of service from the owner, management and staff at every level. My son plugged the toilet up using too much paper, he was able to get a plunger from the front desk, with clean plastic bags to handle it after its use. The vending machine was jammed with a bad dollar bill, I brought it to the attention of the front desk clerk and they fixed it immediately and gave us a refund for the dollar lost. There was individual Heat Pump/AC in each room. It worked well and we had no issue with the room comfort. The beds were good quality, soft but not too soft, and there were four pillows per bed. The pillows were too thick for me, and they all were the same size, this was the only issue I had, but it was not bad enough for me to complain about. I did not try to ask for thinner pillows. The breakfast in the morning had a variety of hot and cold items, it was not like the buffet of high-end hotels, but for a free-breakfast at the price we paid, it was quite nice. They had several types of bread, a waffle maker, toaster, and hot eggs, sausage and breakfast potatoes. I made breakfast muffin one day, and a breakfast biscuit another. The waffles are common, the hot protein was a nice touch. The potatoes were not to my taste, but the sausage and egg were fine. It would have been nice to have some cheese. They also had muffins, danishes, yogurt, juice, coffee and cold cereal. There was a microwave as well. Each day the room was cleaned and it was perfectly made up. I forgot my toothbrush at home, they provided a free brush and paste at the desk for me. The morning of checkout the folio was placed under the door, and everything was correct. The one complaint I have was there was no elevator to the second floor. There are only too floors, if you can't carry your bags upstairs, I suggest you ask for a first floor room. This was not a problem for my 16 year old son and I, but might be for families, or elderly.

    We were pleased with our room - it was very roomy and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is typical. It is a good choice for anyone travelling this route. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend it.

    Wonderful place. Excellent customer service! Clean. Comfortable beds. Typical breakfast. Worth staying at. They're accommodating to meet your every need. Weren't able to take advantage of the swimming pool because of our work schedule but it looked nice. Loved our rest!

    « Friendly and Clean »

    The staff is very friendly and this location is tops in cleanliness. We were able to meet the Manager Ken multiple times and he always had a friendly manner and wanted to make sure everything was "top notch ". The pool was being redone but was opened before we left. The pool area was very nice and they are still renovating the hot tub which was no problem for us. We even arranged to stay an extra day it was so nice. Breakfast was good and coffee and tea is always available. Bill, Amy and the housekeeping staff always had a cheerful hello to everyone. Will definitely stay here again next time we are in Mexico.

    We made last-minute reservations and our room was ready for us when we arrived an hour later. The property looks new. Restaurants are a short drive away. Beds were very comfortable and the room was quiet.

    « No elevator »

    We were in town for a funeral. The queen executive rooms I had reserved are located only on the second floor. There is no elevator. My elderly mother is unable to climb stairs. The manager, Ken took care of it right away. It meant getting a third room but he was able to keep us all together and helped us out with the pricing. Breakfast was just ok. Coffee was good. Was a good stay overall.

    « very good »

    They have great customer service. The rooms were very clean, and it was the best place in Mexico MO to stay. The staff called our rooms shortly after we checked in to make sure every thing was to our satisfaction. I have never had that happen before. If you have to stay in Mexico MO this is the best place by far.

    « Nice place for a weary traveler to rest. »

    I give this hotel a 5, not because it's a top-end hotel, but because, for the price, it's a great bargain. It's clean, and amenities are updated. The beds were clean and comfortable. The pool was nice. It was just what we needed to lay our weary selves down after 6 hours on the road. We'll stay again next time we're in the area.

    « Quietest room in a long time. »

    As we were traveling on the motorcycle, we decided to stop by the hotel early to see if we could check in and drop off our stuff before riding to Mark Twain State Park. Front desk was really friendly and accommodating. After our riding, we went back to the hotel for some relaxing time in the hot tub. As they were doing some renovations at the time of our stay, the hot tub was off limits. So we took a dip in the pool. Pool was a great temperature and very clean. That evening after dinner, we looked for a place to sit outside and enjoy an adult beverage. We did find a patio outside of the pool area but no furniture. There were steps leading into the building so we just sat there and enjoyed the evening. After a great night sleep, ( Did I say QUIET!!! My wife and I loved it.) we enjoyed the hot biscuits and gravy for breakfast. Would definitely stay here again.

    « Family Reunion Hotel Stay »

    My husband and I stayed at the Best Western for 3 nights for a family reunion and I must say that the service was EXCEPTIONAL!! As a independent travel agent who is always looking for nice and clean establishments to send my clients, this one is definitely on my list!. The continental breakfast and the inside heated pool was a plus as well. I would give this hotel a 5 star rating. The hotel cleaning staff made sure the room was cleaned every day and that we had what we needed.

    We were very happy with our stay at the Mexico, Mo Best Western. The employees were very friendly, courteous and professional. The rooms were clean and a fair rate.

    « The best lodging in Mexico which is a dubious honor »

    We have family in town which brings us to Mexico on a fairly regular basis. We have stayed at almost every lodging. We had stopped staying at the BW but returned after hearing of different management. There have been some improvements. The lobby appearance is better. The staff behaves in a more professional manner. The room was clean and the bed firm. The room we had was a former smoking room. It was obvious that management chose to slap on a coat of paint instead of priming or cleaning the walls first. The old smoke smell was present. The carpeting is very dark brown and hard to determine cleanliness. There was no fan in the bathroom. The breakfast is fairly basic and not as good as some BW. The breakfast person is a bit odd and also covers the front desk. Check out was a wave goodbye. It appears that staff have to do it all. Upon check-in, I had to wait for the front desk person to finish a reservation over the phone. Management certainly gets a lot out of each person that works there. One is a captive audience in Mexico. The room is priced too high for what one gets, but there are really no other options in town.

    « Nice hotel with a small town feel »

    « Above Expectations »

    From a telephone call to extend our stay, to check-in, to any accommodation we needed, the staff was always willing and able to courteously get the job done. The breakfast was just fine and a good variety of hot and cold foods. The room was very clean and comfortable. Last time we were in Mexico, we tried another hotel that was not a good experience. Thankfully, this stay was perfect! Keep up the good work! And the price is reasonable.

    « Accommodations used during family vist »

    The new owner has made many improvements to the interior of the Hotel. The staff is friendly and their breakfast bar is the best (well stocked and clean) we experienced on our cross country trip. The maid service is excellent! We visit twice a year and this is the only "local" place we choose to stay.

    5
    « My Thoughts »

    My hotel stay was great. I have been staying at the same hotel for 15 years. My biggest problem is that if you get to a hotel late and then do not get checked out by 11:00 am you have to pay for two days. There is surely some way to figure out a way to make that situation more fair.

    « Clean rooms and very nice staff! »

    This hotel is clean and has a nice pool and free breakfast. Breakfast is nothing special but good for some free food! The TVs are huge for a hotel room and have plenty of channels with all stl sports! I stay here every year for work and always has been a great place to stay! Staff is friendly and they will go above and beyond for their guests! I will never stay anywhere other than here when visiting Mexico Mo.

    « Breakfast eaters beware »

    Overall the best option in Mexico MO. I have stayed at this BW several times. This most recent stay presented moldy packaged breakfast items, and sour / expired yogurt...eggs left in warmer too long as well as gravy. Perhaps a fluke stay? I would stay again but will not be taking advantage of the "free" breakfast.

    « Not horrible »

    There are few choices in this community and from what others in our group said about their hotel this is probably the best one in town. It could use some upgrades and improvements but the staff was very nice. The breakfast area is small but the lady was working very hard to keep everything well stocked.

    « Nowhere Else Compares! »

    I have stayed at BW Teal Lake Inn several times over the last 18 months for business. My job requrires me to stay in a lot of hotels in smaller towns, and the experiences vary. This hotel never fails to meet my needs. It is quiet, clean, comfortable. It has a nice pool, and I recently had to use the meeting room for a meeting with 10 people and could not believe how nice it was for a very reasonable price. But the thing that makes this hotel the best in the area is its staff. Chad has been there almost every time I have visited ,and he goes out of his way to make you feel right at home. He literally helped with the meeting I was having, making sure that the attendees were comfortable. I will not stay anywhere else if I need to do business in the area.

    Good location. The only motel on trip advisor with a good rating in Mexico. Must be a terrible town for motels. Overpriced even though the rooms are nice. Just to stay overnight...too expensive. Breakfast was ok but unattended. Gravy was boiling in the crock pot. I shut it off.

    « Customer Service and Hotel Stay »

    Hotel manager and staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Amy who worked the breakfast bar area was upbeat, mindful and looked out regularly for customer needs.

    I have stayed at the Teal Lake Inn for over 10 years. While it changed ownership a few years ago and I was skeptic, I was surprised how it has not only stayed fresh but upgrades have been noticed too. The hot breakfast rivals that of big chains. A quiet place to stay.

    « Best Hotel/Motel in Mexico, MO »

    There's not a lot to choose from in Mexico, MO but the Teal Lake Inn is by far your best choice. The gentleman who owns the hotel has done his best to continually upgrade the quality unlike most hotels which move in the opposite direction. The rooms are nicely furnished, the breakfast is equivalent to what one expects in a more upscale hotel such as a Hampton Inn. The rooms are always squeaky clean and they do not allow smokers or pets, unlike some of the other Mexico hotels. The employees are excellent, especially Kriston Moon who is sort of a jack of all trades. She is on top of everything and is problem-solvoing-oriented, if you know what I mean.. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone passing through this somewhat remote spot.

    « Class reunion weekend »

    Seemed like this was the newest and nicest place in town. Website picture showed handicap shower, but this is only available in a couple of rooms. No elevator to second floor. No smoking motel, everyone including the staff hung out around the exterior doors to smoke. This place satisfied our needs.

    « Comfortable, peaceful rest »

    We stayed here for just one night, but the staff was so very helpful and friendly. Our actual destination was Centralia MO, but they have no hotels/motels. Our drive back to Mexico, MO, was irritating, but the staff's helpfulness and friendliness more than made up for our aggrivation.

    « Great value »

    When in Mexico, Missouri, this is the best choice. I have stayed at the others but this has earned my return business. Family friendly, recently completed a total rehab. The rooms have all been turned over. Fresh look, fresh paint, linens and bedding. Great value for the dollar. Pool, breakfast, internet, professional staff., non smoking. This property will earn your business.

    « Try a Bed and Breakfast »

    It is by real world standards a 2 star hotel. The only people down at the Breakfast where the maids, staff, and I believe there kids. I travel a lot and this reminds me of a room that has not been updated in 20 years (Minus the flat screen..that was probably updated 10 years ago) But, honestly.... i don't think any of the other 3 Hotel/Motels are better in town.

    We have stayed here twice now when visiting family. They are in a great location. Every time we have stayed here, it is always clean and the parking lot is well lit. There is an indoor pool but we have never used it. The breakfast they offer is pretty good. I have stayed in multiple places and always try to leave a tip for housekeeping and in all my times of doing so I have never had anyone leave me a note Thanking me until now. I really wish I had the note with me so I could include his name. But with that little effort it will always be remembered.

    « A fair value for the money »

    This hotel needs a bit of updating in the public areas. One can see places where the paint needs to be retouched, the carpets need some attention. The rooms were just fine, however, and I was able to get a good night's sleep. It was quiet and comfortable.

    Nice lobby area with breakfast included each morning and we're not talking about just hard boiled eggs and packaged danish. We're talking about a full breakfast menu! Nice room with 2 queen size beds; very comfortable. Large flat screen TV, refrig, etc...

    We arrived late to our hotel and I had some gift cards. The desk clerk was unsure on how to credit our account. We were tired and I told him to not worry about it so we could go to bed. Breakfast is only served till 9am and checkout at 11am. We woke up at 845 and were unable to eat breakfast and needed a late checkout. Didn't feel like we mattered. Our last visit was much more inviting.

    « Worth going out of way for »

    Want to get away from freeway noise? It's worth driving the extra 16 miles to get here. Besides the rooms are nice and they include breakfast. There are plenty of restaurant choices nearby. We do recommend Andrea C, a little pricier but excellent food.

    Please get rid of this or shorten it to 50 characters or I will stop leaving a review. Time is way more import to me than writing gone with the wind mini story here. Had to come back and write more-this is the last straw-not going to do this anymore!

    front Desk person was extremely pleasant and helpful looked liked he enjoyed his job. The room was clean and breakfast was good. The lobby had TV and comfortable seats. For the price and services, it beat cheaper close by hotels!

    Everything was it was as advertised at this hotel. I have absolutely no complaints. The price was very good. The hot breakfast was up to Best Western standards. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff was helpful and cordial. I don't think there was anything more for which I could ask.

    « Clean comfortable room Horrible breakfast »

    I choose this hotel in Mexico MO because it was the best option available (several others of mediocre quality). The room was clean and had a good sized desk for laptop computer work. The bed was ok but pretty soft (I prefer firm). The place looked to have been renovated in the last few years but still had some outdated decor. I tried the breakfast (included with the stay) and there was a good selection. The sausage and eggs were awful....even by out of a can standards. I threw the food away and left with a banana and coffee; thus skipping breakfast. The parking lot is pretty tight and if pulling a trailer there isn't a good place to turn around so you might be backing all the way down the drive and out onto a busy highway.

    Best Western Teal Lake Inn is the only hotel I will stay at on my visits to Mexico. It is quiet, clean, and close to dining. The TV channel selection is excellent, the beds are comfy, and the breakfast is quite good.

    When I walked into my room I was amazed how clean it was. It looked like new! Staff was very friendly and very accommodating to my changing travel plans. I would absolutely stay there again. There's a Walmart one mile away.

    This is a quaint town and the service as well as the facility are maintained at the highest of standards. I would recommend staying at this location to anyone traveling through the area. The town, people, and the food are really good as well as the hospitality. I enjoyed the historical sites as well with the help of the front desk they pointed out many of the key features as well as the sites to see and the places to eat.

    This hotel is always very clean and quiet. The rooms have been updated and are nicely appointed. Breakfast has a good selection and the in-room wifi works well. We always stay at this hotel when visiting our daughter in Mexico.

    Our stay was an overnight stay and the motel met that expectation. The room had an smell to it due to a wet carpet area in front of the heater-A/C unit below the window. We contacted a motel employee about the wet carpet and she thanked us for letting her know about the wet carpet issue. Note: if, as a motel guest, we don't tell anyone about an issue with a room--how can they deal with the issue for the next guest?

    « Mmmm, stagnant water! »

    If you are travelling with a group of dudes on a hunting trip where you won't shower for days and are using your bathtub as a beer cooler, this place is for you. If you are travelling with family or on business, keep driving. The hotel is called the "Teal Lake Inn" I think that is because the rooms smell like stagnant lake water.

    Pleasant and helpful staff. Breakfast was adequate with many choices - from cold cereal and pastries to waffles, sausage, hash browns and eggs. The room was decent but could use a facelift. A huge visible stain on carpet as well as a dust ruffle that was on crooked and in need of repair. Nice to have refrigerator and microwave in the room.

    « Great Hotel for not a Lotta Money! »

    We have stayed in this hotel for the last four years for a 3 day business trip we take every year. This place is well priced, great service and the complementary breakfast is very good - many choices for either a light breakfast or one with eggs, sausage, potatoes, etc. Coffee is pretty decent also!

    « Not worth it »

    The only thing that was good at this place was walking out. Went to the pool to have no towels in the pool area, got a double queen room and got two towels in the room. Didn't want to ask the front desk because English is so bad that you didn't know what they were asking. Had to call the front desk and ask how to call out and picked up phone to call and order food and phone wouldn't call out breakfast offered it a bowl of cereal,coffee was cold and nasty. And when someone opens there door and closes there door you door rattles as of someone is coming though your door.

    « Value and Comfort »

    I stayed in this little hotel for one night prior to a breakfast meeting in Mexico, MO. It was nicer than I anticipated. My room on the first floor -- I think there may only be two floors -- was very clean and comfortable. I think it had been remodeled recently. It included a small fridge and a microwave. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were clean. I didn't eat the provided breakfast at the hotel, but it looked pretty good. I didn't sleep very well, but I wasn't uncomfortable. There was a pretty big space between the bottom of the door to the room and the floor. That allowed a lot of light from the hallway to seep into the room. The air conditioner was also pretty loud. It switched on and off in attempting to keep the temperature steady and the inconsistent white noise made it difficult for me to fall deeply into sleep. This hotel is on the edge of town. So there wasn't much in the immediate vicinity. A mile or so down the road the rest of town appears. It was pretty cute and charming. For the price, this Best Western was just about perfect.
