A baseball tournament brought 12 players and their families to the area. Hannibal, MO turned out to be a "gem" and a true slice of Americana. And Best Western On The River were wonderful hosts to us :) From the booking process where I reserved a block of rooms for our group, through check-out, Romaine and the other staff at...

First time to hannibal since i was little. Me and my husband had a good time. The front desk was very nice and friendly. They let us check in early but couldnt get the keys till around 3 which was fine. When we got to the room it was very nice, clean. Only thing was there wasnt enough towels for...

My mother, sister and I stayed at the Best Western on the River for just one night while passing through. The rooms were very nice, recently remodeled (I think we were given a room in the new building. I'm not sure what the rooms are like in the original hotel) and the location was really good. We were able to...

One block from historic district, easy walk but road is brick. Breaksfast was hot, eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy. MIchelle kept everything full. Michelle and the housekeepers are the only sraff in the building. Front desk staff are across the street in another building, so yiu have to call if you need something or search around for a housekeeper....

We chose this hotel because it was within walking distance to so many attractions. Our room was in the new building that was built about a year ago. The room was spacious and very clean. A full hot breakfast was included and had many food choices. We swam in the outdoor pool, but there was also an indoor pool. We...

Loved our room at Best Western for our 2 day exploration of Hannibal in MO! We were just a block from Mark Twain's boyhood home and walked everywhere! A few blocks to shops, restaurants, and the Mississippi. Fantastic beds that were very comfortable, clean beautiful room. I would definitely recommend this as a must stay in Hannibal!

The location was very convenient. The indoor pool was nice. If you are staying in the main building the pool is in the middle so the hallways were humid, but our room was fine. We did use the fridge for drinks we brought, but the vending machines were not outrageous like some. It was clean, modern, and comfortable. Breakfast was...

I typically enjoy luxury hotels, but this was perfect for our sightseeing purposes in Hannibal. You have to cross the highway, and the Mark Twain attractions are all within walking distance. The breakfast buffet was okay; no bananas either morning. My hub made waffles and said they were delicious. I'm not a big fan of buffets and don't like to...

We've never encountered a hotel, in 15 years, that was more accommodating to our motorcycle group. They encouraged us to park our bikes under the overhang and provided wipe-down rags without us asking. Downtown Hannibal is really cool and this hotel is ideally located.

I rented 3 rooms for my family for 2 nights. We loved the location as we could walk to all the attractions in Hannibal that we wanted to see, including the Mississippi River (except the Caves, which are well out of town). We traveled with a senior citizen, 5 adults, and 4 children aged 6 and under. The pool was...
