Clean, quiet and convenient location.

My daughter and I enjoyed our stay in University City. Convenient location, close to train to downtown St. Louis, highways, universities and Del Mar Loop. The home was clean and comfortable, and hostess was a delight. I definitely would recommend this place , and consider staying their again.

Excellent experience.

  • 5 of 5

If you need a place to stay in St Louis and are on a budget, look no further. I stayed here for about a week and a half, and very much enjoyed it.

The owner of the house was readily accessible when I needed to contact her, and was very informative with where everything you might possibly need was located, as well as phone numbers for the host, the door code to get in, and the WiFi information.

Alona, the host, was absent for the first few days of my trip. No matter, a very kind womand named Lois welcomed me into the house and gave me the tour, and was very gracious (The owner lives out of state, but everything is managed very well). Alona arrived back from her travels a few days later, and was very kind and welcoming as well.

The house was quiet and cozy, and for the most part everyone did their own thing. I tended to leave mid morning after everyone else had already gotten ready and left, or earlier than everyone else on the weekends, and came back late at night. There was no hassle about this at all (thank you for putting up with my shenanigans, Alona!), and I never felt like I was stepping on someone's toes coming and going as needed.

The room was nicely decorated, and the bed firm but comfortable. The sheets and blankets were very nice (felt like a goose down comforter), and I was never cold at night (even for February!). It was very nice to have a ceiling fan in my room for some background noise to go to sleep. On a side note, the walls between the two guest rooms proved to be pretty thin, but this was never a problem. You could hear conversations next door, but everyone was very courteous about it.

If this is your first time staying in St Louis, this is an excellent spot to be. Very close to the hip area known as "The Delmar Loop" with shopping, entertainment and restaurants, as well as the Central West End, but just far away enough to avoid the traffic congestion of those areas, as well as the constant noise.

Overall, I will definitely stay here again when I visit. Even though I didn't get to see her very much because of our schedule differences, Alona left me a very kind and thoughtful card on the day I checked out. Much more than a simple "Thank You," she was very genuine and it meant a lot to me that she had taken the time and effort just to wish me well on my journey. So if you're looking for a good deal and wanting to stay with good people, this is definitely the place to be!
