I have stayed at this Best Western on many occasions.All of my previous stays have been just fine. However, this past stay was a nightmare. I was traveling alone with my three children and stopped here for the night as I have done many times before. I arrived just after midnight. I awoke at 4AM to a crying 11 year...

Great value for the money. Hotel was somewhat updated and quite clean. Beds were comfortable and staff was friendly. The location was perfect for walking to downtown activities. Breakfast was ok but we came at the very last minute. I would stay again.

All the employees were very kind and considerate. Breakfast was more then the typical cereals and waffles. Perfect location for the area. Only bad thing would be parking if you are not on the 3rd floor which we were.

This hotel is very clean and would be 4 stars, but train whistle wakes you up repeatedly throughout the night. Excellent value for the price and would probably stay here again since good value. Workout room is small but good enough. Kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Breakfast was good and free.

This hotel is perfectly located for downtown Hannibal & the Mark Twain attractions. Other than that it's just what I'd expect from a Best Western - comfortable, clean room, decent breakfast, ample parking & friendly staff. We were in the building across from the main building, which is a little bit "sterile" in atmosphere, but otherwise just fine. Pricewise, somewhat...

The hotel is an older motel but everything was spic and span and updated. The central lobby had a pool and all the rooms opened inward so as to see pool....even the upper floors. There was a slight smell of chlorine in the lobby but not the rooms. They enforced a 9pm pool closing so it was quiet. The staff...

Excellent location for seeing sights in Hannibal, especially if you have an interest in Mark Twain. Staff is very courteous, and attentive. Hotel is very clean, with a nice hot breakfast to start a day.

Our room was exactly as we expected it to be. We stayed at the back of the hotel as others thought the trains were too loud on the front. Our room was very quiet. This hotel is within walking distance of the Mark Twain attractions downtown and also right across the street from the visitor's center.

Parking is a problem, very limited. Entrance area is only one car wide. Meal: eggs were not hot, Milk was sour and OJ was weak. We complained and we received a fresh milk, and the OJ was refilled.
