Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My family of stayed at the Aviator hotel as our home base for spring break 2022 as we explored St. Louis. The hotel is 20-30 minutes from most of the things we wanted to do around the city, and had direct access to I-55 Northbound into the city. The lobby of this hotel is really nicely furnished, with some good historical references, restaurant, pool table and had some kind of flavored water or juice and coffee available, any time we went past. The restaurant had some selections ranging from basic apps to high end entrees, though, we got salads and chicken tenders for the kids. We even happened to stop in on a night where they were doing music trivia, and my whole family decided to join in. It was a really great time, and I hope an event that they can continue to build on.
The rooms are your average, basic hotel rooms, ours had a fridge and microwave, but I don't think they all had them. Our room also had the typical fit and finish issues you would expect to see in an average hotel room, repaired walls, some electrical work that could be tidied up, etc, but the room was overall fine for us. The TV had 40-some channels, including local weather, NatGeo and HBO, which kept us well entertained, though I do wish hotels would start upgrading to TV's that I can mirror my phone onto so I can use my own subscription services.
They also have a pretty large indoor pool and hot tub, in a much larger and more open pool room than most hotels, a really nice feature for our family.
Finally, the hotel staff was pleasant and very attentive whenever we asked for anything, and they even started a text conversation with me when I arrived that we continued to communicate with for the week, a nice touch.

Overall, this is not a high end hotel, and I don't think it means to be, but it felt clean, safe, had a great pool, a good location, and I think it was a really great value for what we needed on this trip.

Wasn’t sure if hotel was in business as there were 3 cars visible in parking lot when I arrived and it really didn’t fill up much for the night. According to sign in elevator, used to be Holiday Inn. It is a 4 story property with elevator. Elevator sign requesting limit of 2 people or family, hand sanitizer stations outside elevators that I tried to use were not dispensing sanitizer. Pool was open and looked clean. Fitness center limited number of people at a time. Room good sized, had refrigerator and microwave and a small loveseat, good channel selection, WiFi fine. Bar and restaurant not open, looked like small mini mart in lobby. This is a large property that when I checked out was told was going to be renovated as things are a bit tired and old. Location and area seems to be going through transition as there are old, tired businesses as well as new updated businesses in the area. In the current state feel rate was high. Finally it would have been nice if at check-in would have been given courtesy of being told muffins, granola bars and oranges available in the morning.

Everything was good, I actually liked that the breakfast was a restaurant and not free it was nice having service and relaxing with a hot breakfast, instead of fighting over cereal. The pool was open but the hot tub was not. We were lucky and were on the side of the building away from the highway it was pretty quiet besides door slams and children talking loudly. We were in the last room in a very long hallway and this is fine, however the side doors would not open with our key card after late, I wish they would have told us when this happened as it was a long long walk to the front door and then back around to room again. Our room was a little worn, one light wouldn't turn on until I found another outlet to plug it into. The TV remote battery cover fell off in my hands, as the tab was missing. The fridge had a freezer section and rechilled everything I needed including my ice bricks, this was awesome. The location is next to a dead shopping center, their is no traffic light to turn left you must cross 2 lanes of traffic. The parking lot and roads leaving the area are in disrepair the entrance had large potholes. For the price I'd do it again.

We booked 4 rooms in this hotel weeks ago and at the time it was a Holiday Inn Express. We called a week ago to cancel one room and did so with no problem. When we arrived in St Louis, there was no Holiday Inn....it is now Aviator Hotel & Suites. We received no email informing us of the change, nor were we informed when we called to cancel a room.
Once we determined that our reservations were actually at the Aviator Hotel, we were extremely unimpressed as the entrance, lobby and elevators were quite dirty. The person at the front desk apologized and told us they couldn't find help. Our rooms were a bit better, but we did find stray hairs in the bathrooms and there were no cups to be found even though there is a coffee maker in the room. When we returned to our room on the second evening, no beds were made nor did we receive clean towels. When we inquired about that, we were told that rooms are only cleaned on the fifth day of anyone's stay and at that time we would receive clean towels. There were 3 towels and wash cloths in the room. We paid $245 for 2 nights stay with horrible service and dirty conditions. We do not recommend this hotel at all!

We were doing a lot of sightseeing in and around St. Louis and this motel was centrally located being very close to on and off ramps of the main highway. We had a pleasant stay and thru a misunderstanding didn't realize that our breakfasts were not part of our room cost. However, a very nice front desk clerk gave us some coupons for this and we had a great filling breakfast from the buffet that was offered next to the lobby. Will remember our waitress as she gave us some great ideas for our next visit to Hannibel and she also arranged to give us a "bonus" breakfast on our final day.

The suite was spacious enough for 2 adults and 1 toddler. The pool option was good for us, since an AirBnB doesn't typically offer that, but even indoors, it was cold and the hot tub wasn't in service. There was no exhaust in the bathroom, and if the air conditioner wasn't on, it did smell musty in the room and there were spots on the ceiling that were questionable. The king mattress was hard and the sofa mattress was flat and old. When we arrived, there were no extra linens for the sofa mattress so we had to get those at the front desk. Additionally, we weren't told that housekeeping is on an as-needed basis until we complained that we had been there for 3 days and no one emptied our trash yet (2 very small bathroom sized cans). Housekeeping was requested the following day (because they had left already that day), and still didn't come. We didn't get housekeeping the entirety of our stay. All I wanted was trash taken out, new bathroom linens, and the bathtub cleaned since my 2 year old was bathing in it. Again, was met with linens from the front desk and 1 roll of toilet paper, after housekeeping had left for the day. I had to make my own bed in a place I was paying to stay in for a week. Having the microwave, mini fridge, and keurig was nice, though, since we made breakfast in the morning for our toddler and snacks in the evenings. The room was pretty quiet, which was a huge plus! And, when our neighbors on the 2nd day of our stay, were very noticeably smoking weed, management seemed to have taken care of it soon, as the hall and room smelled better after we said something. Overall, we will not choose to stay here again. We'd much rather spend a little more or even the same, without a pool, to rent an AirBnB or equivalent.

Thank you for taking the time to share your concerns regarding your stay with us, and we appreciate both the positive and constructive comments. While we are known for our great customer service and attention to detail in everything we do, it appears we did not live up to our own high standards on this occasion. That you were inconvenienced as you were by the lack of housekeeping is deeply regrettable. We do appreciate that you brought these matters to our attention, showing us that we have room to improve on several fronts. We're grateful for your time and wish you safe travels.

After reading the reviews here, we weren't expecting the Ritz-Carlton, but for the most part, we were actually pleasantly surprised.

The Aviator is right off of I-55, about fifteen minutes from downtown St Louis. There are enough restaurants (including fast food and a Krispy Kreme) close by that there's no excuse for being hungry, and fuel is relatively close as well.

The hotel is not quite 40 years old; it was (from what we gathered) originally a Sheraton, then a Holiday Inn, and is now loosely affiliated with Best Western (but is NOT one). The front entrance of the house (lobby, conference rooms and bar/restaurant) appear to have undergone a relatively recent renovation; the rooms/hallways have not. That doesn't make them bad, but they are showing their age.

Having said that, all we were looking for is a clean, comfortable room with a good shower and a TV that has more than three channels. (NOTE: Aviator has a limited DirecTV subscription, but it includes HBO.) This place has all of that, and has plenty of parking.

There were only a couple of little things that were inconveniences. Specifically, at the time we were there, only one elevator worked (we were on the second floor), so we had to walk the entire length of the hotel, ride up one floor, and then walk halfway back to the front of the hotel to get to our room. Not a big deal once we had our room keys; we just parked near the back door, which got us right next to the elevator.

Second, as is commonplace, we had at least one key that became "demagnetized". No, it wasn't near a cell phone or anything else electronic; it just failed. Again, not a big deal; we had it "remagnetized" and it worked fine for the rest of our time there.

All it all, we couldn't be disappointed by getting something slightly nicer than we expected; we'll certainly stay there again if we need to be in St Louis again.

We came in for a car show. This was the host hotel. Walking in and the Lobby seemed nice. Checking the staff was pleasant. Getting on the elevator.. it was run down. Walking to the room the carpets were dirty and the feeling of the place was not inviting. It seems dark and blah. Entering our room,.seemed clean, buy you could smell that it was a previous smoking room. Very out dated. Stains on our white bed covers, cigarette burns in the bathroom counter tops. Very cheap feeling. We had 1 kurig kcup I guess to share.? No cleaning or refreshing of the rooms, no clean towels, coffee, trash.. nothing.. never saw a cleaning cart until we left on Sunday. So we stayed for 2 nights and rented 2 rooms.. The AC went out in one and the front desk replied with what do you want us to do about it? They super nice and discounted the room $10 per night...at least that is something.. they were booked completely full so there was no changing rooms. Bar and eating areas were closed. You might get lucky to get a packaged muffins and coconut water for breakfast. Coffee in the lobby, only in the morning,not.kept up with, out of condiments, nasty hair and dirt in the bottom of the creamer dishes. It was just not a clean place. The water pressure and hot water were great though! The lobby area was pretty neat. It was an okay place I would.not rate this as a 3 star hotel. A 2 star yes.. It is average, a place to sleep.

During the first weekend Nov. 3rd-6th I was visiting & exploring St. Louise enjoying the METALLICA takeover weekend. I found Aviator Hotel through Orbitz. Rates and location were acceptable & reasonable. I had a good stay and found the room clean, comfortable and area visibly safe. Front Desk and the morning buffet was good & consistent. Bathroom met all my needs and the shower had good pressure, even if it had only one level surface in which to place my shampoo & conditioner travel bottles, which I found funny and annoying. A bathroom safety mat was included for the shower-tub, a nice added touch. Observation: I find it odd that nowadays many mid & high end Hotels lack vent fans in their bathrooms. Conveniently located to good food establishments and local entertainment. I was merely 15 to 18 minutes away from The Dome & The Arch National Park. Other than Friday afternoon at 4pm which wasn’t intolerable, there was no traffic or congestion or construction, most of the time when I was going into the City. I recommend trying local eats in The Grove part of town named Grace Meat + Three and Freddys’ Custard & Steak burger’s, which is all over the area. Fitz Soda was also a neat looking local creation that I never got to try out & looked fun, if you’re into that type of thing. Historic Jefferson Barracks are a few miles from the hotel and have expansive trails that are dog friendly while providing beautiful views of the Mississippi River bird habitat & flora viewing including a compelling & thoughtful War Memorial to lost Hero’s of Missouri. Jefferson Barracks is also home to an active National Guard Unit, along with the designation of being historically significant to the early days of Lewis & Clark and The Core Of Discovery, as they met right here along the shores of the Mississippi prior to disembarking to St. Louis 1803.
