Hey Mizzou, I'm traveling from MI down south and back in late April. The St. Louis area is a little over my 1/2 way point heading south. I've stayed at Babler previously but was wondering about Meramec and/or other choices (southern Indiana) you might recommend for an overnighter on my down & back. I'm the only human, traveling with my dogs (golden retrievers). Ideal world, Meramec is a little less than half-way for my return and I'd like to get to the other side of St. Louis for the remaining drive home. Thoughts are very much appreciated and thanks in advance!
