Historical Traveler Reviews Drury Inn & Suites St. Louis-Southwest Valley Park
Great value for families
We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in May and thought it was great for families. We were travelling with our 3 small children and saw many other families like our there. We had stayed at the Drury at Fenton the night before as a part of the 'Stay, play, hooray' package and the size of our room there was claustrophobic. When we moved to this Drury, we requested a suite and they were very accommodating. It was perfect. We all enjoyed the breakfast options and the free long distance was a nice perk. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone but especially those with young families or those who just want a nice hotel at a very good rate.
Stay was ok at Drury Inn and Suites St. Louis Southwest
We had two families of four. Our room was a little dated but was clean. Everything worked fine. The other family did not have as much luck. Their toliet was clogged and they found a hanger behind their door, as soon as they walked in. Drury Inn did send someone up right away to fix the toliet. We never knew why there was a hanger laying around. The popcorn and drinks were in the lobby. Popcorn did not taste very well and the pop was in plastic cups instead of cans. This hotel is by the highway so if you are not used to noise like that it could bother you. The rooms over all were pretty sound proof. There are alot of rooms by elevators so ask for a room away from that. Breakfast was great tasting and lots to choose from but we hardly found a table to sit down, their was so many people. All rooms were full that night. Some people had to stand to eat breakfast and others took it back to their room. The indoor pool opens to the outside so it was a little chilly. They did have heated jets going but it was not that warm. There were sticks floating in parts of the pool. If you are on a tight budget this place is ok to stay but if not I would try maybe some where else.
Really good value hotel
This was my first time staying at a Drury Inn. I was very impressed with the quality and the value, and I would definately stay there again.
I had a little trouble finding this location because driving westbound on I-44, there's another Drury on the exit right before this one and I went there first. At any rate, this one is located on exit #272. It's reasonably close to Six Flags and about a 20-minute drive into downtown St Louis. The hotel is right off of the highway in a very safe area.
I was able to book this room for $49.99/night because of an online St Louis Getaway promotion that the chain is offering. I think it was the best hotel I've ever stayed at in that price range, and better than some that I've paid twice as much for.
Check-in was friendly, and the staff was helpful in directing me to some local places for dinner and shopping. Unfortunately, I just missed the evening reception, but it's my understanding that each guest is given 3 complimentary beverages, including cocktails or soda. There was a popcorn machine in the lobby as well for a complimentary evening snack.
The lobby was nice and had a lounge area where several guests were socializing. They have a large atrium area with a huge chandelier and a glass elevator. Overall, it gave the impression of a more expensive hotel.
My room was very nice, a little on the small side but not at all cramped. I'm sure the suites are much larger, but I opted for a standard room since I only stayed for one night. I had a king bed, a recliner, a desk/chair, and an armoir that held the TV, fridge, and microwave. The fridge had 2 free cans of Pepsi and the microwave had a free bag of popcorn included in the room rate. The bathroom area was all marble tile with the vanity located outside of the shower/tub room. The bed and the pillows were comfortable. Everything was spotlessly clean and the carpet looked new. It was really quiet too, and even though it was nearly sold out, I never was bothered with noise from the other rooms.
The hotel has two pools, indoor and outdoor. I didn't use them, but I saw a lot of happy kids and their families.
The chain offers an hour of free long distance in the room rate too, so I was able to make a few calls without worrying about a huge bill.
The breakfast that is included is impressive. They had scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, french toast, waffles, bagels, donuts, cereal, oatmeal, fresh fruit and lots more. It was way better than any other chain I've ever stayed at, right up there with the Embassy Suites. But it was really busy! There were at least four employees working to keep everything restocked, so everything was fresh and there was never a long wait for any items.
This place would be great for families travelling with young children. With the pool and all of the free items that are included, it really saves a lot of money for having fun. I don't think you could find a better place for the price.
Overall, I was really happy with this hotel. I will seek out other Drury locations in future travels.
Excellent hotel for the money.
Most hotels we stay at we come in, crash for the night and leave expecting hard beds, noises throughout the night and fairly indifferent service since we are budget conscious. This time we found a hotel with extremely friendly staff and the room was outstanding. The bed was very comfortable and thankfully we were able to sleep with very little noise from the rooms above and below us. On top of that, their price for the room was $100 cheaper than the Marriot. In our opinion, this hotel is a keeper and one we will stay at on our next stay in St. Louis.
The only downside is how far it is from the city, but being next to the interstate alleviates those concerns.
Great Place but bring the flea POWDER!
Stayed at the Drury Inn southwest for 4 nights on our way to Branson Missouri.August 15-19/ 2005. Great Price of only 79$ for regular room and 105$ for a suite. Rooms very nice, good free breakfast, HOWEVER be Aware this hotel allows pets and unfortunately with pets come FLEAS! FLEAS! FLEAS! After our first night in a regular room my wife and i, along with my 2 teenage sons had recieved each at least 2 flea bites. Our next 3 nights we had arranged to stay in a suite room but the flea bites were no better as my wife received at last 6 bites, i got lucky with only 1 and the boys didnt receive any from the main room with the sofabed and extra cot we got.
Too bad as the hotel is very nice and pool area also nice with nice pool towels. I did mention the problem to the front clerk when i went to check out and found out that their was no charge for pets? Strange ? and the dont restrict pets to certain rooms either? HATE TO SAY IT BUT THIS HOTEL WILL BE FLEA INFESTED UNLESS THEY CHANGE THEIR WAYS!!!
I love dogs and have had a few during my life but anywhere i been their has always been a fee for pets and always a rstriction to only certain rooms for this reason!
A good stay in spite of first being given an already occupied room. They caught the mistake before we keyed the door and quickly moved us to another room. Clean and comfortable and, for a sold out Friday night, mostly quiet. Staff could have better knowledge of the area. Car trouble forced us to move our check out into mid afternoon. Staff was quite gracious in allowing such a late departure.
Drury Inn, 5 Lambert Drury Road
My wife and 2 daughters stayed at this hotel July 17 thru 21st based on reviews of other Drury hotels. Our stay was fantastic, we stayed on the 2nd floor in a 2-room suite. The room was very clean, modern decor, bed was very comfortable, and in-room high-speed internet was a plus. Spacious bathroom was appreciated. The free breakfast was above-average with biscuits, eggs, sausage, gravy plus the usual fruit, toast, bagels, pastry, etc. Breakfast buffet staff was very attentive to cleaning & servicing the buffet as well. Staff was very friendly. We found the on-site laundry facilities useful. The location is about 20 minutes from Six Flags or the Arch & other downtown attractions. Our only complaint was no on-demand movie channel, but we were so busy we didn't have time for in-room movies anyway. Hope to return to St. Louis in the future & will definitely stay at a Drury Hotel.
If you are looking for a clean, family hotel- Check this one out
I have to give this hotel great reviews. We had a party of nine ( including four children under 8) and were looking for a reasonable, kid friendly, quiet place to stay with an indoor pool - between the zoo and six flags. A tall order to be sure, but we found it here - everything was clean, from the elevator, pool, and jacuzzi to the rooms and bathrooms. The service desk gave us great tips on places to eat and directions- even great deals on tickets to six flags. Located between six flags and the zoo area we only had a small drive to each- several restaurants close also- safe neighborhood and of course Drury treats you great also with free drinks, snacks, and a great hot breakfast. I am one happy customer.......now if only they had park and fly at the airport................ i guess some things really are too good to be true............anyway- we loved this hotel so if you are in the st louis area- its worth a second look-great deal !
Great location, great service
This was my third time at this hotel (just got back on 3/27/05) and I have to say that the service gets better each time. It is ideally located next to a major highway and near Six Flags and the Magic House. You save money on food with their free breakfast that includes eggs, french toast, sausage, cereals, waffles, bagels, biscuits, several drinks (oj, apple juice, milk coffee and soft drinks) - not to mention their nightly snacks (chips, salsa, nachos, popcorn, drinks (alcoholic with coupons and unlimited non-alcoholic). An indoor and outdoor pool the kids will love. This place is a bargain. The staff is super friendly - even at the hotel's most chaotic time (breakfast), the staff always addressed guests requests with a great attitude. Don't hesitate to stay here - you won't regret it.
This hotel provided all the amenites of a 4 star hotel. To start with they had free evening snackswhere their was soda nachos popcorn and 3 complimentary alcoholic beverages. The room was large and deluxe with fridge and micro. This hotel opened in Dec. 2003. The breakfast was deluxe withfrench toast,biscuts,sausage,eggs,cereal,toasts,bagelsand much more!! The hotel overall was excelent and provided everything imaginable including pop in the fridge and popcorn in the micro
