GuestHouse Inn St. Joseph

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I don't normally leave reviews, good or bad. But the staff was absolutely rude, morning and evening. Hotel rooms looked to be updated but very poorly and cheaply done.

Quiet, nice people, good breakfast. The way it should be.

The place was run-down: the doors didn't close, there were holes in the wall, etc.

This hotel should not be rated as three star, maybe one. The staff were friendly but the hotel is in need of repairs and some spring cleaning!!

booked room for 2 people, only 1 bath towel, 1 hand towel that had motor oil stain all over it. no hot water in lavatory, handle would not turn. no extra blankets in room, no bedspread, just sheets on bed, room was cold, door did not close completely. noisy room, next to truck stop. pitiful service, room, hotel.

Arrived late but still were greeted kindly. Quick check in. Delightfully surprised at the quality and comfort of this room. Smelled good. AC. Worked great. If we're ever that way would stay there again. Might be helpful for accurate GPS address. Had a bit of a trick finding it.

The room was clean and comfortable and the price was good. The air was off and it was stuffy at first but had supperand upon returning, the room was good. The staff was pleasant. Wifi was good.

This was the last room available in Omaha for the night. Otherwise I would have left and gone down the road. The sink drained into a trash can. When I told the desk I was told they knew that. And I'm assuming it will continue to stay that way. The shower handhold came out of the wall bc it wasn't anchored right. The highway noise was atrocious all night long. Overall it did in a pinch but I likely won't be back.

I needed a clean comfortable place to stay while doing two long road trips to officiate college basketball. The staff was accommodating on my need to park my car in excess of the time I would be staying at the motel. The room was clean, comfortable, and conveniently located.

Name spelled wrong on reservation and it stated we pay with a card we don't even own. Called my card company and things were okay but still worriesome Room was clean. Bed was comfortable. Plenty of outlets for phone chargers. Breakfast was okay. Towels were clean but dingy. Small holes in sheets. Toilet didn't flush properly. Shower head needed attention. My husband gave them a list of these things so hopefully if we stay again next year it will be fixed.

A very unfriendly front desk attendant when we checked in. We went to the back of the hotel to get to our room and the metal steps to the second floor were rusted and had huge holes in them. Unsafe!! We will not stay there again.

the room was clean and comfortable. The only down side was the room only had one chair. In general a good room for the price

The room was clean but there were a few things that needed attention. 1. the sink fawcett was loose making it hard to turn on and off 2. the hole in the wall behind the entry door. 3. most important I had to kill a cockroach on the table-this concerned me the most I have to take steps to insure the none came home with me!!!!!

I would not stay at this motel again. It was 18 degrees outside when we checked in and there was no heat turned on in the room. It was well after midnight before the room was even beginning to get comfortable. Safty lock was falling off.

It was an OK trip, yearly hunt. No one in out party killed a deer this year.

We were traveling and tired looking for a cheap place to stay overnight with a television. This place hit the mark. We had a room located away from the road so the big rig noise others mentioned wasn't really a problem. I probably wouldn't stay here for a long stretch. We just wanted a night or two for $50 or less and it was perfect. Clean. Easy. Plenty of parking.

Its unfortunately right next to a busy industrial intersection that has 18-wheelers stopping and starting non-stop all day long. The good news is that it does let up at night. The bad news is, unless you aren't bothered by the noise, you can forget any day time naps.

The hotel was located right off a highway, so it is great location for those travelling. Not so great for sleeping. Microwave and refrigerator were outdated, but usable. Shower grab bar broken. Economic, I would say "fair" condition.

It was okay for the money that was paid. There was one of the rooms that had the light fixtures that was falling from the ceiling. The wi fi was spotty, and not usable at times.

LOCATED BESIDE A BUSY TRUCKSTOP AND INTERSTATE. LOTS OF HEADLIGHTS AND ENGINE NOISE THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT. ROOM WAS CLEAN AND ACCOMODATING, BUT NOTHING FANCY. HAD MICRO AND MINI FRIDGE. CAN'T SAY MUCH ABOUT THE MEXICAN PLACE NEXT DOOR....ITS THE ONLY CLOSE RESTAURANT OTHER THAN FAST FOOD.
