On a trip to research family roots, my brother and I stayed at Harrah's Metropolis. We received far more than the price would have indicated. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. The proximity of the casino and good restaurants was , of course, a bonus. They are expanding the hotel and casino but there is little disruption for guests. The wonderful desk staff skillfully, cheerfully and immediately helped correct an error in our reservation(error made by website we used to reserve rooms). We would stay here ebvery time we were near Metropolis. It was a relaxing stay.
There was a slight mixup with the booking, and to apologize for the inconvenience they upgraded our room to the suite, complete with jacuzzi tub! The staff were very polite, efficient and professional. I slept better than I'd slept in weeks, and checkout was a breeze. We stay in a lot of hotels but this one really stood out in our minds as one of the best hotel experiences we've ever had.
"Beautifully maintained Holiday Inn Express, hotel."
To break up my drive from Atlanta to St. Louis, I chose this hotel for myself and my eleven year old grandson. The staff was helpful, courteous and eager to please. We arrived a bit early because traffic from Atlanta to St. Louis was far better than my trip from St. Louis, to Atlanta. Cole, the hotel desk clerk asked us to please wait in a comfortable area while the staff finished cleaning our room. (Cole was quite willing to give us suggestions about where to eat dinner and his choice was excellent. Fat Edd's Roadhouse was a good choice.) When our room was completed we went up and found a beautifully cleaned room with refrigerator, microwave and a single serve coffee/tea maker. A good size television with HBO was included. The beds were comfortable, though I would have preferred a pillow top. I was surprised to find this hotel in this little town.
I read previous not so complementary reviews AFTER I had confirmed my reservation. So, I was feeling a little worried that I may have made a huge mistake. But, onward ho! There wasn't much else available at the price, in that vicinity, so I figured I'd give them a go.
Yes, it's an older hotel. But it has been either well maintained, or recently fixed up. Check in went smoothly, and the desk clerk was very nice and friendly.
I immediately went to my room. It was hot and stuffy, but I turned on the A/C and left to go visit with my friends. When I came back that night, the room was comfortably cool. I had a nice shower, and went to bed. My bed was quite comfortable, and I slept through the night without being disturbed. I left for the day, and when I came back again, I had clean sheets, the floor had been swept, and there were fresh and extra towels in my room.
As I said at first, it IS obviously an older place, but for the money it was a great place to stay. I will stay here again and again.

"Thanks to the concierge of Super 8 Metropolis Il !"
The concierge on duty the evening of the 16th was absolutely fantastic!
She was incredibly inviting and accommodating. In the morning I had run short on time to make it to the airport. If not for her help locating a taxi, I would have missed my flight!
