Not too shabby...

The hotel room was clean and free of odors. One couldn't hear the people in the other rooms, so that was a bonus. The staff didn't say much to the customers, but depending on whether or not you are a people person, one could like being left alone. The bed was comfortable and the television had a nice hd quality. It was also close to all the main areas in Columbia. The price was cheap and for the price, you get one heck of a deal. I would definitely stay there again.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

Tropical Liquors is amazing if you want to have fun for a cheap cost. Followed by the Arcade bar down the street and you have a perfect night.

Basic but practical

Average quality, with a good continental breakfast. We stayed in room #200. It was clean but we noticed that the carpet had too many stains and should be replaced.

it is 2 star for a reason

no frills. the best characteristic of this hotel is the friendly staff. the room is bare minimum. the free breakfast ends at 9:00 so better be an early riser

Overpriced during Mizzou football games

good service by staff and plenty of parking, slow unsecure wifi, Tube TV with basic cable, everything in room worked, no bugs seen, never had the breakfast, high rate due to Mizzou-Florida Football game but everything in Columbia is overpriced during football games, would not stay here again during a non-football game weekend at the prices they charged me but might stay here again at normal rates

Not Happy

The faucet in the bathroom was broken and also the toliet handle. While we were eating at 9-9:45, they came in and cleaned around our things including the bathroom. Hopely they re-cleaned the bathroom after we used it.

Not that Happy

This time the room needed a lot of work. The faucet in the bathroom sink was broken and so was the toilet handle. The room didnt seem that clean. We went to the breakfast and when we returned to our room they had started cleaning around us, so if we used the bathroom the next renters would be using a dirty toilet etc. We won't be back there.
