Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 185 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by poor vacation When we arrived a the hotel we were given a dirty room that had dirty water still in the bath tube and the toilet seat was dirty. We were then given the room across from ours that was not completely changed over to be comfortable. Their was no chair in the room only one for the desk. The television did not have the correct remote controls. I surmise that what happen to us in Virginia just continued on. September 30, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great place to stay This is so far the greatest hotel I have say at. The only Problem I have is Nickaloden did not come in on the TV all other channals came in but Nick did not September 25, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable room Our experience overall was good. However, one thing really angered me: The maid left the shower head facing out into the bathroom! I didn't realize this until I turned the shower on and was soaked (outside the tub) as was the entire bathroom including the clothes I intended to wear that day. Housekeepers should be trained to leave the shower head pointed well inside the tub - not to do this is unconscionable in the hospitality business. September 23, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good for last minute stays If you're looking for a last minute place the holiday inn will do. The staff and greeters were super sweet and accommodating. The building is just very outdated and smelly! Nothing too bad, I'd just prefer a updated establishment. Also my restroom floor and tub didn't seem to be cleaned but the house keeping staff came right away. September 22, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Another Trip to HI Watson Rd. I've been staying here for many years. I am always greeted as a Priority Club member and usually get the room of my choice. The dutch-treat breakfast is a great value and good way to start the day along with the USA Today, complements of HI. I'll be back again next month. September 21, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst Holiday Inn I've ever stayed at! Room was dirty, bathroom had long black hair all over the floor and shower. Room smelled and the bedding did not look clean and one of the pillow cases looked like it had spots of blood on it....so gross! Tried to bring my issues up with the front desk and they didn't seem to concerned about it. Used my reward points for this stay and it was a complete waste. September 20, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Could not sleep either night due to screaming guests in the halls Tried two different rooms but could not slep either night. People screaming in halls, banging on door. Called front desk but issue was not resolved and did not get any sleep. When I checked out, many people were upset saying they did not get any sleep either. Don't stay here if you want to sleep. September 19, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible! This may have been the worst Holiday Inn I have ever been in. The room was listed as "executive", but it was far from that. It appeared as if this room was a double bed room and the other bed had been taken out. However, the room was never reconfigured to accommodate the extra space. Because of this, there was a vacant portion of the room. The bed was uncomfortable, the a/c only blew "freezing" air or you had to just turn it off and deal with the heat, and the walls were dirty. Lastly, at 2:00 a.m., the idiots down the hall decided to start partying as loudly as possible. I called the front desk, they sent someone up, but they continued to be idiots off and on throughout the night. This hotel was terrible!! September 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place to stay My son and I came to St. Louis to go to the Cardinals game and to Six Flags. We wanted a hotel between the two and we got it. It's almost the exact distance between the two. The rooms were clean, the cafe at the hotel had a great breakfast, and the staff was awesome. I know when we come back to St. Louis next year we will defiantly be staying here again. September 11, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Labor Day with Kids was a great time The property is freshly designed, clean, beautiful, and above all, the staff is top notch. From Terron and Angela at the Front Desk, to Margy and other restaurant & room service staff, our mini vacation with kids was really fun and happy. The pools (indoor and outdoor) were great, and it was a very pleasant experience all around. Having a shopping mall literally across the street was fun for us too. Can't wait to come back to this property! September 6, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Long Weekend The biggest positive of this weekend stay was the friendliness and service of all the staff at the Holiday Inn Rt 66. The hotel itself shows a bit of wear because of its age, but the staff couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. Location was nice for us and we spent a couple days in the attached bar which was also nice. September 4, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cross country trip Found room to be comfortable,clean. Bed also very comfortable. Would recommend this hotel to a friend or family member. September 4, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by could be outstanding with a little tlc Customer service was excellent, room clean and comfortable, facility convenient but carpet in common areas in desperate need of cleaning/replacement and pool area and building exterior need cleaning / refresh. September 2, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Time to update I typically chose Holiday Inn Express for overnight stays and extended stays but this one left me reconsidering my choice. While the staff and service was excellent-courteous and professional at all times, the actual hotel was a bit sketchy. When you enter the hotel, you're greeted with the sound of the revolving doors which remind me of a jumbo hamster wheel, producing an ungodly screeching noise. In fact the other 3 members of my party remarked that they would want to shoot themselves if they had to listen to the racket every day. Next, the elevator is sized for perhaps 2-3 average sized adults with a minimal amount of luggage. The carpet was clearly outdated and looked questionable, prompting one of the guests make a firm decision to keep her shoes on at all times whenever they came in contact with the floor. The water pressure in the shower was abysmal; the tv, although clearly udpated, sat on the desk because they still haven't upgraded the entertainment center' they was no glassware of any kind in the bathroom; the hair dryer was substandard and the mini fridge smelled musty. The mini fridge, by the way, which we reserved a month prior, had to be requested via a call to the front desk along with a request for extra pillows. While the mini - fridge made it right up to our room, the pillows had to be requested again, almost 8 hours later when we returned from a night out. Finally, no free continental breakfast was offered. August 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by An Awesome Stay Despite the untimely circumstances surrounding my visit, my week stay at the Holiday Inn on Route 66 and enjoyable. The management, hostesses, maids and dinning staff were remarkable and friendly. There efforts to go above and beyond their duties to ensure my stay was comfortable, relaxing and fullfilling were generous and were much appreciated by me. Their dinning accommadations were excellant and while my diet was rigerous and demanding their chef was able to accommodate all my requirements. The dinning management offered a healthy and enriching selection of foods and were conscientious and supportive of my needs. Thank you again for all your support during my stay. I look forward to revisting the Saint Louis area and will definitely stay at your hotel. August 29, 2013

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good value Convenient location and friendly staff. The bed was comfortable. August 21, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Very disappointed I am a travel agent, so I was surprised that management allowed any of this to happen. When we checked in, we were told that there would be a "bike" function going on in the parking lot that evening 8/14/13. But not to worry, because the bikers were all doctors and lawyers. We left the property at about 1 pm and did not get back until 9 pm. There were over 500 motorcycles in the parking lot, and there was no way they were all doctors and lawyers. Not that that really mattered. However, the continual reving up the motors and running the cycles up and down Watson (which ran in front of our room) was very irritating. Finally, we were able to go to sleep to the sound of bike engines. Then at 2ish in the morning, we were awoken to several men in the hall partying. My husband called the front desk. At some point, when the front desk sent some one up, a couple of the guys starting screaming at the top of their lungs, as if to wake everyone up since we called the front desk. We complained about it to the front desk the next morning, speaking to a young lady named Ebony. She said she would talk with her manager. We left for the day, as we were in town visiting family member in the hospital. When we came back to our room that evening, there was a very nice note of apology and a small gift basket. Considering the bike convention, which we were not warned about BEFORE we arrived, I would have liked to have been comped one night's room rate. As a travel agent, I cannot believe the management did not alert guests before they arrived. August 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simply terrific One of the best kept secrets in St Louis area. Beautiful rooms, friendly staff, good restaurants close by and in the hotel. Very family-friendly. We loved our mini-vacation there! August 10, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed Most Holiday Inns are very nice, convenient, nice. This one disappointed us. The previous one gave us a "care" package for being ihg members, this one didn't even acknowledge we were. No fridge in the room, asked about it, was told we could rent one for $5 - but alas, none were available. Was told no breakfast included, of any kind. Dinner ... there was a bikers bar attached to it, you can eat there - uh, no I have a 7 year old child with me. Did try the restaurant out - sat for 10 minutes no service and left. August 7, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great service Staff very friendly and helpful the breakfast buffett was very good only thing you could use more luggage carts August 7, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by very nice staff but uncomfortable bed The staff was very nice and very helpful. However the room was averageand the beds were very uncomfortable. Ok overall experience for the price I guess. August 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel and staff Best hotel for the price in St Louis. The staff if helpful and friendly and available 24/7. My favorite Holiday Inn and that says a lot as I travel all over the USA and stay at 100's of them. Thanks for another GREAT stay. August 3, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Event Hosting We stayed on site in the hotel as this was also the location of a reunion we were attending. The staff was very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay and especially during the event itself - I think they had as much fun as we did! The hotel itself and the rooms are in need of a few updates - a breaker was flipped about the same time we visited the indoor hot tub spa, the entry revolving door could use some WD40, and the room bathroom could use a fan to help with the humidity from the showers, but the beds were comfortable and clean, and the room felt spacious enough for the 3 guests that shared the room. I even left an item behind, and the staff was very courteous in making sure that the item was returned safely home! August 2, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ridiculous We were unable to get into our bathroom because of a broken doorknob & lock. The night staff was unable to help so we eventually got our own tools and removed the doorknob in the middle of the night. The staff made no additional effort to fix the problem so we had no doorknob the rest of our say. We were not compensated for the inconvenience. August 2, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel and event experience Stayed two nights recently. The room was clean, comfortable and well supplied. The hotel staff was very polite and helpful. Attended an event in their conference center. The venue was more than satisfactory and the attending staff were very friendly. August 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Job! We appreciated the Holiday Inn staff. We had booked nights at anothe hotel down the street and were very dissatisfied and Holiday Inn was able to get our family ajoining rooms in a short notice and very helpful. We enjoyed our stay! August 1, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Getting better all the time! This property is a little rough around the edges but the staff is fantastic! Our room was comfortable, had a beautiful new TV, and was very clean. The bathroom was nice and well appointed. We stayed two nights and had no issues. The hotel is close to a lot of food options (walking distance) plus there is a fun restaurant on site. We used the banquet facilities and found the staff to be really great, fun bar tenders, friendly smiles, always willing to help. I understand that the hotel is getting a make over and updates - it did look like there was a move in the right direction. As it is, we were happy with our service and treatment - the staff more than made up for the slightly worn appearance. July 30, 2013
