Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Vacationers4 Nice Staff, Average Hotel
If you are mainly concerned about being in close proximity of Six Flags and having the convenience of a free shuttle ride to the park then I would recommend this hotel. The pool area was very nice and the kids really enjoyed playing there. I thought this would be a reasonably priced stay considering the hotel offers a "kids eat free" stay with an adult paid meal. However, your not told that the adult meals are ridiculously price for the mediocre meal you get. If you just want to order a simple meal like a cheeseburger and fries then your out of luck in the restaurant, you must order from the grill out by the pool area where the kids don't eat free. The reality is, the kids menu for the free meal is so extremely limited and taste more like frozen tv dinners. The only thing my kids wanted to eat there was the pancakes. The other meals he tried in his words were "yucky" or he said he was tired of eating that. The breakfast buffet was really good, but not almost $50 good as free kids meals were not included. That's a lot for adults and two small kids. We ended up going to other restaurants in the area where the food was cheaper, tasted much better and you had many more choices. Very dated. In the end, was not a good deal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kcchewy Great Stay for Trip to Six Flags
If your goal in searching for a hotel is to be near Six Flags St. Louis, this is the place. Less than a ten minute walk from room to front gate (we timed it), plus shuttles start running 30 minutes prior to gates opening. Not messing with or paying for parking is a big plus. They do not have complimentary breakfast, but they do have a restaurant serving breakfast, as well as a gas station and The World's Most Popular Fast Food Chain next to the facility for a quick grab. Several other restaurant chains are a short drive away, and nearby Eureka has local Mexican and fried chicken restaurants and a small winery that were all bustling. The building itself is older with an interesting bit of history, but rooms and public spaces are clean and serve the purpose. All staff was happy and helpful, environment is safe. You may notice a faint chlorine smell due to the large indoor pool in the Fundome (also has video games, air hockey, pool table, pseudo-mini-golf, shuffleboard), but it is not bothersome and only noticeable upon initial entry. If your kids love the hotel pools, you will not be disappointed. Staff does not allow running or horseplay, so kids are safe. It can be busy during peak times, but we counted 40ppl in the pool one evening and it was not overly cramped. Poolside bar is reasonable and overlooks the pool if that fits your vacation bill. They also sell park tickets at rates slightly better than online offerings. If kids having fun is the priority, don't hesitate!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GrandmaHi Great Place to stay & WALK to 6 Flags
The front lobby of this hotel is awesome. Rooms are average, but priced above average. No microwave or mini-fridge that are available in most rooms for this price.
My two favorite features were the restaurant and the ability to walk to the 6 Flags amusement park. Even though we had gold passes and parking would have been free, we saved a lot of time making the pleasant walk each day. There's a pond and several resident geese...it was nice.
Even though there is no complimentary breakfast, Kids under 10 or 12 do eat free with paying adult, which helps budget.

What a wonderful setting. I booked here because it was so close to SixFlags but now I'll stay here anytime I'm around the St. Louis area. Very relaxed atmosphere, cozy rooms, pleasent and affordable restaurant, and a huge play are for the kids. This place has it all.

This was our first stay at the Saint Louis West at Six Flags and it was excellent. Everyone was friendly and very helpful. I definitely recommend staying at this facility. We loved the pool area and the kids really enjoyed the shuffleboard and putting area. Thank you for an enjoyable weekend!

This was such a GREAT place to stay! Just what we needed. The décor is so fun - it seemed like we were staying inside Cinderella's Castle at Disney World. I kept taking photos of the hotel to show everyone how great it was. There is a wonderful activity area for kids and family with game room, hot tub and heated indoor pool. Staff could not be more friendly! Free Shuttle to Six Flags across the street. Wonderful place for the family!

Very good hotel with an interesting history to the building. Very close and convenient to 6 flags. We were in the back area of the hotel and it was quiet without being to far away from the recreation area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Augustana Outstanding staff and relaxing stay
First of all, Carol, at the front desk who worked from 11:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. was phenomenal! She set us up with a rollaway bed and signed us up for the Rewards Club. She also advised us about the St. Louis Zoo and gave us maps, directions, and tips. The room was more than adequate for the five of us and the only little bump was an uncomfortable rollaway bed. We were close to the pool and enjoyed it immensely. We felt safe and secure the entire time we were visiting. Breakfast in the restaurant was delicious and came in a timely manner even though they were quite busy. We will certainly return again during our future visits!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jen75 Great Shuttle Service, decent beds
I booked a queen double room poolside for my daughter's 10th birthday. We mostly did it for the "kids eat free" and the shuttle service to Six Flags. The best part about the deal was the shuttle. The drivers were AWESOME! Very professional, fun and friendly. The room-for the price-was average. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The bar was a nice added touch however, the bar tender(Female) was rude and unaccommodating when asking her for recommendations of wine. She seemed to act "put out" and they weren't even busy. Overall, if I get a deal, I would stay here again. The restaurant food was good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Family110902 Great overall stay, with one exception
We had a great stay at the hotel and going to Six Flags. The shuttle is excellent. The only complaint, we would have would be the lady that was working the pool area, was way too much like drill sergeant. My kids had on arm floaties and had a tiny little blow up toy, which she came over and immediately told them they couldn't have it. Um they are 6 and had no idea what she was talking about. She proceeded later to follow us around a lot and did this to several other people as well. The gentleman that worked the pool area during the night time was much more friendly and laid back and still performed his job well. She just needs to chill!!
We will be back to visit the hotel soon and hope things are different in the fundome area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KCee Great nights sleep.
The hotel room was nice. I would have preferred things like a fan in the bathroom but that is just a small thing I could do without. I really looked forward to a relaxing time in the hot tub and sauna but that never happened. Kids were always swimming in the hot tubs and warming up in the saunas. We never did get to swim or use the above. That was very upsetting since I had planned on it. The worst thing was the food at the restaurant. I can't even begin to tell you how bad the service was let alone the food! They say kids eat free but you can't even get a cheeseburger, fries or hot dogs. We tried the mini pizzas and after the third attempt at getting our food right we paid the expensive tab and left. I had a plate full of tortilla chips with only two chips that had cheese. Disgusting all around. Overall I would still recommend this hotel because of the convenience and shuttle to Six Flags.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jmdurham I hate to be a complainer!
I really do hate to complain. I try to just make the best of any situation but this hotel was bad and really brought the quality of our getaway down. The rooms are old, clean for the most part, but adequate at best. The location is really the best part of the entire place. Just steps from the main gates of six flags. The beds were horrible, the doors were extremely difficult to shut and stuck terribly. After a long day the kids and I just wanted a hot meal and to relax. I promise there will be no relaxing down by the pool and hot tub, the amount of people and screaming kids was insane but that I guess is to be expected, however the food, you would be better off to walk across the street to McDonalds. We went to the restaurant the décor is almost gross, very dated and dingy and that was the best part. I ordered Chicken Fried Chicken, it was undercooked and so greasy I didn't even taste it, my daughter had a bowl of chili and it was nothing more than canned tomatoes water and chili powder. It was awful. My sons nachos looked liked nachos and may have even been decent however they were so cold, like they finished making them before they started cooking the rest of our order or something and sat them in a cooler. None of us were able to eat. I informed our waitress I would gladly pay for our drinks, and my side salad so she went to get the manager. Apparently he had taken a walk or something they couldn't find him then finally after several minutes called him on his cell phone and after several more minutes he arrive. I was fuming by this time so it was a good thing he was extremely nice. He took care of the bill and asked if he could make us anything else, I mentioned I would just call dominoes pizza and he suggested we get a pizza from the eatery close to the pool. He met us out there only charged me half price, we ordered a large supreme and they offered to deliver it to our room in thirty minutes, I left a healthy tip in the jar on the counter and we went to our room. They did deliver the pizza but it was an hour later not thirty minutes and not really all that great. The toppings and sauce were fine but the crust was like a unsalted cracked but at least we had something in our belly. The staff was fine but I feel the hotel was overpriced and under par.

We real enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn. It is super convenient to six flags and makes it easy to come and go during the day. The staff the we encountered were very pleasant and helpful. I believe her name was Sandra recommended 2 great restaurants for us. We enjoyed the pool, hot tub and game room at the hotel. We will definitely stay there again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by worldtraveler89 Six Flags or another reason for your visit? It makes a difference.
If you are choosing this place to be near Six Flags, it's great. If you're in the area for some other reason, it's pretty pricey for what you get. Not bad, but what you're paying for is the location. The grounds and the buildings are attractive, the room was clean, and nothing caused real problems. But the a/c blower didn't adjust below full gale strength and the bed was pushed right up against it so that the window curtains billowed over the bed continually. Breakfast was ordinary, the staff was friendly, but the cost was quite high for what we got. Coffee in the room was appallingly weak.

We stay here every year for our Six Flags vacation, sometimes twice a year. You can't beat the convenience of the shuttle. We enjoy the restaurant, the pizza bar, the indoor pool, and the arcade. Even tho you will pay more to stay here, it is definitely worth the extra cost when you factor in all the perks of staying here!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by peaches21 Thank You
We really enjoyed our stay at Holiday Inn at Six Flags!! It was the perfect spot for us to allow our teenageers to enjoy the day at Six Flags and for the adults to relax. After having heart surgery; I was uncertain if I would be able to spend all day at Six Flags and your hotel on the property was the perfect choice for us. The staff was very friendly from the moment we walked in the door; the atmosphere was very nice and clean. Even the shuttle driver was very helpful. On the night we stayed there were tornados in the area and the staff took extra time and care in making sure we were all safe. The one thing I was surprised about was that there were no refrigerators in the room. But, we could rent one for $5; so, this made it possible for me; an insulin dependent diabetic to make sure my meds were kept cool. And, we do plan to stay again in the next 2 months.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ojyllek Much better than expected!
We booked two nights at this hotel solely because it was close to Six Flags and had a shuttle. We were very pleased with our entire experience here!
From the front desk staff, to the maintenance staff, to housekeeping to even the shuttle drivers- everyone was helpful and friendly. Every part of the hotel we saw was clean and in good repair. We liked that there were laundry facilities if we would have needed them.
The pool area was great- and we even saw maintenance there checking the water levels twice while we swam. It helped me feel more comfortable about being in the pool. It wasn't over-chlorinated like some "public" pools can be.
The room was a standard hotel room, but everything was clean and well-presented. The beds and pillows were comfortable. We asked that a mini-fridge be in the room, and it had been plugged in and was cool for us by the time we arrived. I know there were a lot of families on our floor, but we hardly heard any other guests, even those right next door. Good job on the sound-proofing.
We had such a good experience that we plan on coming back next year for another visit!

My room was quite comfortable, and I liked that there we're two entrances from the parking lot and for the hotel hallway.
The highlight was the in hotel restaurant, the Hay Market, which had surprisingly good food, and yummy soup, th very hearty breakfast.
Staff was very friendly, and not at all perturbed when I needed a plumber. Promptly answered the phone and gave me the free wifi code.
I love that its situated right at the entrance to six flags. Overall all the facilities were very clean, and beds very comfortable with plenty of pillows.

At check-in, I was informed I would receive 10% off our food bill, from the restaurant, since I am a Priority Club member. At check-out, I recognized that the discount was not on my final bill. The front desk clerk took my e-mail information & told me I woukld hear back from the restaurant manager to ensure the discount would be applied. I have not heard from the restaurant manager nor was the discount applied to my credit card. Otherwise, all was good.
