Had to stay in St. Louis overnight and wanted to stay somewhere close to I-44 with a refridgerator and accesibility for babies (I was traveling with my mother and 3 month old). I initially was going to be staying at a different hotel but when I found out they wanted to charge $20 for a refridgerator (which I had to have), I decided to look elsewhere. I had stayed with the Drury before - practically next door to the PearTree - so I knew the area would be good. In this case, PearTree was chosen because the price seemed to be good...however, I wished I had stayed at the Drury - or even the initial hotel. Cons - I was placed on the 2nd floor. And it reaked of smoke. In fact, my room smelled worse than the actual floor. This was my biggest concern prior to staying here...I checked the TripAdvisor reviews and saw the smoking issues, but hoped it wouldn't be bad. I was wrong. At first I thought I would just get used to it. But no. It gave me such a headache and caused a slight asthma attack. Then I was concerned about my baby. I was about to request a refund and drive away. However, that leads to the pros... Pros - the staff was extremely helpful. The front desk manager not only got me into a room on the first floor (non smoking) but helped move all my stuff and baby gear. If it was not for her, I would have left and not looked back. Other observations: I felt like I had stepped back into the late 80s/early 90s with the decor. It wasn't bad, just a bit older feeling. Breakfast consisted of make-it-yourself waffles and if I remember correctly, yogurt. Other dry good items were available, but none of them looked appetizing. Popcorn at night was good. Will I stay here again? Most likely no. Only if I am on a really tight budget. Next time I'd go for the Drury next door...or perhaps even that hotel that wanted to charge the extra $ for using a refridgerator for one night. « less

When traveling to and from Tulsa with my wife, we usually stay at the Pear tree. We have been pleased in the past. I stopped here today because of impending snowstorm. Boy was I disappointed. Yes it is extremely clean. Yes the staff is still friendly as ever. BUT I didn't sleep well. (The purpose for staying). The d*mn blowers on the heater went off constantly during the night. I tried adjusting thermostats but that didn't work.
I'm crabby. My back is sore, and I still have 6 hours of driving ahead. Maybe I should only stop in moderate weather. « less

I stay at this particular Pear Tree Inn once or twice a year, and I keep coming back.
The rooms are clean (although they are a little small by today's standards), the mattresses are excellent, the staff is friendly and helpful, and it is a good value for the dollar. In its price range, it is the best value for the money in this area. The breakfast is a little skimpy when compared to some of the others (continental + make your own waffles), but with a Krispy Kreme donut store within walking distance, that isn't an issue for me.
There are never any surprises when I stay here... and that is a *very good* thing. « less

We took a fall vacation with our two kids 20 years ago, and stayed at this Pear Tree Inn. It was great then, and we were all young and didn't care as much about accommodations back then. It was then that we discovered Krispy Kreme, and found them all along our vacation route.
So we were nostalgic when my wife and mother in law decided to stay in this Inn again.
Times have changed. Smoking/Non Smoking was not an issue back then, but things have changed. I do not smoke, and don't mind if people do. But not in the NO SMOKING hotel room. We didn't smell it when we first arrived. The front desk person was more than helpful in getting us checked in. We found one of several places to eat in the area, and turned in.
The walls were thin, so hearing muffled voices at times was common throughout the night. And the cigarette aroma was prevalent in the room. I don't know how it happened, but in the hallway, one of the H/VAC vents was pouring cold air into the hall, filled with the aroma of cigarettes.
Dogs are allowed, although it was not an issue. I felt sorry for the young man who had more trouble dragging his kennel in through a side door and onto the elevator, than he had with his dog.
Pear Tree Inn is not what it used to be. Of course, the world was different 20 years ago. But stay there. It's a good deal for a one night stop along the way. « less

Room clean and pleasant & bed comfortable. Staff outstanding. As husband (who is on crutches) & I were unloading two different employees at separate times, offered to help us. This happened again at departure. Upon discovering a nail in my tire, I asked the front desk for directions to Sears Auto. Sarah called around to find the closest open Sears, called them to ask if they could take us and gave us the address, writing out the directions. Also told us where to find a station with an air hose to fill tire prior to going for repairs. I would definitely stay here again. « less
