Were close to shopping, dining and bars, making it as easy for our guests to get the full experience of the region as possible. When youre close to attractions, its easy to make the most of your trip and see it all.

July 4th weekend is a big celebration in this area, and many out-of-towners stay at our Hannibal hotel to enjoy the festivities. The Hannibal Caveman baseball team is a source of great pride, and you deserve to stay in cool, comfortable accommodations if youre in town to catch a game. Whether youre here for the Fall Fest, jet skiing or on business, rest assured youll be treated like family here. A few of our regular Hannibal hotel guests are employees of Hannibal Regional Hospital, General Mills, Buckhorn Rubber® or BASF.

Our free hot breakfast includes your favorites like hot waffles and eggs, pastries and fresh fruits, a selection of cereal and yogurt choices.

Great loc in town

I read other reviews on this hotel and almost did not book this one. Now I understand others reviews. The location in town was great, walk to everything (almost), not the caves. There is NO river view from your room!!!! In fact, my room was on the west side and had NO outside window at all. The window we did have, overlooked the pool, which is in the middle of the lobby!! So, it could be noisy until 10pm. However, the staff did close the pool then. Stayed 3 nights, funny after returning to my room after the 2nd day and my key no longer worked. OOPs, we only activated your card to 2 nights. Really? I gave this hotel a overall rating of 3 only because of its location!

Great weekend get away

The hotel was very clean and comfortable. They serve a full breakfast and if one is looking for a quite weekend get away, this is the place. Located in downtown Hannibal and within walking distant to Mark Twain Museums and local shops. There is something for everyone.

Nice hotel

The best thing about this hotel was the location. It is within walking distance of most attractions. The staff was not very friendly or accommodating. Overall nice hotel.

Mark Twain Didn't Sleep Here

I stayed at Best Western in Hannibal on my way from Chicago to Wichita. It was an okay hotel, however, compared to the other options, it was not a particularly good value. The room was large and comfortable enough, but the bathroom was small, just like the towels, and had an annoying light/fan combination. The room had no external window which meant no natural light; and only inexpensive plastic drinking glasses were provided. The staff really didn’t know the area, and couldn’t recommend any restaurants. (The hotel had no restaurant or bar.) The breakfast, while included, was nothing special, although the cook was very pleasant. There were a couple of very cute diners that would have been a better option; but when the price is higher than other hotels because of the included breakfast, you are reluctant to go out of the hotel. The hotel was near the Mississippi River and the older section of town, which was quite nice. It did have a a good pool and hot tub.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

Most dining options in Hannibal close early (8:00-9:00), so get there early if you want to eat something other than fast food on a busy street.

Visiting relatives

Rented 2 rooms.. The first room was fine, 2 beds, very nice. Went to second room, and the room was unmade. Housekeeping did not do their job, and did not let the front desk know. Was given another room, king sized bed, jacuzzi room. Room itself was fine, except, you could not draw the dark curtains closed.We were on 1st floor. Had to turn off all lights in room, for fear of passers by looking into the room at us. Had the light, see- thru curtains on the window, and that was all. Please see that ALL rooms have the privacy dark curtains available to be closed. Very disappointing. Front desk clerk was courteous and apologized for having to move us.

Rainy weekend trip

Most of the rooms in this hotel overlook the pool. I guess that would be great if you have kids (or an entire soccer team, which also booked the same day as us). The side we were on had no outside windows, and had bad lighting, so it was dark and noisy . There was very little parking. The "full breakfast " was a joke. Certainly not what they advertise. The bathroom fan sounded like a jet engine. We would not stay there again, or visit Hannibal again for that matter.

Outstanding Stay!

We were on the northwest side of Missouri, listening to news report about the rains and the river overflowing its banks when we called the Best Western on the River in Hannibal. The desk clerk reassured us and made a note that we would be a very late arrival. The streets were as water-free as foretold and the hotel everything that previous reviewers promised. The rooms are clean, very well designed with excellent amenities, and comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Hannibal. The Mark Twain historical buildings are a very short walk from the Best Western so it is also very convenient to the town's historical section.

Leave your car in the Best Western parking lot and walk to the beautiful park with statues to your left, then to the Mark Twain Museum to the right of the motel and one short block toward the river.

Good Location

Toured the Mark Twain museums and the Cave. Hotel could have used light blocking drawable curtains. A room with two double beds could have used a sink outside the bathroom. The continental breakfast was only average. They could use a waffle maker, yogurt, fresh fruit and more sweet roll donut options.
