My husband needed to travel to St. Louis for business & we were lucky enough to be able to turn it into a vacation for the whole family, including the dogs. We needed a place to stay that would accomodate our hairy children & decided that St. Louis Best Western was the most economical. Of course there were other hotels that allowed pets but, currently we can't afford over $100 dollars a night. We got a great rate of $61.00/night with a smoking room rate. We don't smoke but, found that we were lucky enough to get a non-smoking room as all the smoking rooms were taken. The thing we like about Best Western Hotels is that they offer FREE breakfasts which is one less meal you have to spend money on. The breakfast at this hotel was not the greatest but, hey it was free. Also there was free wifi, a pool which was quite cold because it wasn't heated, an exercise room, laundry area, & ice machine. Also the rooms have microwaves & mini fridges which come in handy when traveling with children & pets. There are no childcare facilities there which is why I gave it a 0.1. Also if you become a Best Western reward member for free you get points for each stay & can redeem them for gift cards, etc. Of course we booked our stay through upromise.com & then through travelocity.com. Also there is free parking. This Best Western is 20 minutes from the heart of the city of St. Louis. This hotel was perfect for our budget.
