I had the pleasure of staying here when I moved out to St. Louis in 2010 and enjoyed it very much, you can bring your pets with you also if you need a place to stay overnight or if you bring your pets with you on vacation. The pool is awesome but a little cool to say it was heated. Rooms were very nice and clean. The hotel staff was awesome and best of all the Hotel has some history here in Eureka as told here by the Hotels website…
“The Deep Springs Stage Stop
For almost 200 years, the Holiday Inn site has been a resting place for weary travelers. We’re proud to continue the tradition today.
At the turn of the 19th century, Native Americans in this area of Missouri wanted a stable source of water in times of drought. They dug deep springs on the present acreage of the Holiday Inn at Six Flags.
Over the next fifty years, as stagecoach travel increased, the land became known as the Deep Springs Stage Stop. It was an oasis, literally, a welcome, restful spot on the road. Travelers looked forward to the Deep Springs as their first “good water” after leaving the city of St. Louis.”
It turned into a Community Farm at one point and then a Horse Hospital during the civil war before finally being turned into the resort in 1975!
