Our “Best Rates” are available only on our reservation pages or by phone. Many third party websites (like Expedia and Booking.com or TripAdvisor and even Google), claim to have the best rates for our guest rooms. They do not, because we set their rates and we do not always offer our rooms through those sites. The truth is that you’ll find the best rates and availability by booking through our website or calling us directly: (618) 697-7929.
