"Not worth the price. The hotel renovations were poorly done. The bathroom ceiling was noticeably patched. The shower door didn't stay closed, so water got on the floor. The pocket door for the bathroom was filthy. The pool area needed work.2017-04-10"

"The heater in our hotel room made a loud noise, and the maintenance worker was unable to fix it. We were finally moved to another room after about 40 minutes. The 2nd room didn't have a fridge, so one had to be brought up. The TV didn't work and had to be repaired. We stayed for 3 nights, and our bed was never made, even after we reported the problem. The housekeepers weren't friendly.2018-03-24"
"Clean hotel with friendly personnel. Short walk to Katy Trail and the historic downtown area. Go for it.2022-09-29"
"The hotel was just blocks from Ameristar Casino and 1 mile from downtown shops. The front desk clerk was extremely courteous and helpful. Didn't like the fee for the in-room safe I didn't use, though.2015-11-16"

"The hotel was affordable and clean. The room was large and comfortable, and the staff was helpful and friendly. I've stayed in 3 different hotels recently, and this was the best. I'll definitely return.2016-07-20"
"The hotel room was clean, and the temperature and bed were comfortable. I slept well. The shower leaked water on the floor, and the jets on the whirlpool tub didn't work. The dresser needed repair. Breakfast was good and appreciated. My stay was fine.2016-07-15"
"The hotel was nice and clean. I recommend it.2016-06-22"
"I was given an already-occupied room, and no other rooms were available. I agreed to stay in a meeting room with a very uncomfortable sofa bed. I woke up sore, tried to "shower" in the sink and dried off with some napkins I found. The continental breakfast was pretty good. I wasn't charged for the stay at least, and I was offered a voucher for a free weekend stay. But it's been over a week, and I still haven't received my voucher.2015-10-05"
"The curtains in my room wouldn't close, and the WiFi didn't work. The bathroom was dirty, and the faucet leaked. The staff wasn't concerned when I reported the problems. Don't stay at this hotel.2022-06-15"

"Just minutes from the convention center and historic St. Charles. The hotel staff was helpful with directions and recommendations; they even helped us stay an extra day due to tornadoes and flooding we'd encounter back east. There was a free shuttle to St. Charles.2019-06-10"
"The hotel room was spacious and clean.2019-06-03"
"A great and affordable hotel. It was clean thoughout, and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen had a full-sized fridge, dishwasher, garbage disposal, and a 2-burner electric hot plate. I had nothing negative to say about the room. The only down side was that the front desk wasn't manned overnight. The desk clerk was great.2020-11-02"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
