Excellent facility. Convenient to all attractions. Walking distance to restaurants and museums. Short 10minute drive to caves. Friendly and helpful staff. Went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Hannibal.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

My Wife and I spent part of our Honeymoon here in November of 2015, Hannibal is such a nice little town, and this hotel is right near all the good stuff! Particularly all the Mark Twain attractions, plus Maid Rite is across the street! The place was clean and the room was very nice, the indoor pool is great too!...

This was the 7th motel stay for my wife and I in as many nights. We were traveling from California to South Dakota via the southern route. We stayed in Missouri for 4 nights, including two at this location. This is the best of the overnight lodgings in that period. Hannibal is a fun place to visit and the BW...

We highly recommend this hotel. Not only is it clean and updated, it also is within walking distance from anything you'd want to see in Hannibal. We didn't even have to use our car once during our 2-day visit. And the hotel staff is very friendly and accommodating. There's a nice indoor pool in case you like to swim. And...

I always have a good night's rest at the BW on the River. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast is nice too. I got a jacuzzi suite this time and it was so nice and relaxing to soak in the bubbly tub after a day of visiting family and checking out the shops...

Best hotel I've stayed at in a long time. I don't have one complaint except that the indoor pool closed at 9, which I understand, my kids were just disappointed. I will spend the little extra and stay here every time I go back to Hannibal. The staff was all very friendly and the hotel was clean and quiet.

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel. Everything is nearby. We love to walk so it was perfect. Hannibal is a lovely city. Our room was on the 3rd floor in a corner which was nice. The pool is in the main lobby area so you do smell the chlorine when you walk in. It didn't take long for us...

Large swimming pool in the lobby with a lot of noise from pool play all day and into the early evening hours. Frequent noise from passing freight trains all day and night that adversely affects rooms. This hotel is not situated on the River, but located several blocks away. Parking lot ingress and egress is limited.

This hotel is one of the nicest we have stayed in. The layout was great and makes you think you are in a high end place. Indoor pool was nice being in the middle of the hotel where it can be looked down upon from the hallways. It does have an auxiliary building that we did not see. Parking left...

Staff is very friendly, rooms very clean and beds were comfortable. In a perfect area to walk to all the shops and restaurants, and riverboat. Parking is limited and lot is very small. I would stay again!!
