I chose Alton Marina as a place to park my boat for the month of November 2022 while I went home to take care of some business. I got a covered slip in the long term tenant area. I stayed on the boat 3 days before I went home and 3 days after returning, before continuing my trip south on the Loop.
Unfortunately, the water and pumpout had been shut off prior to our arrival for the winter. This meant that the bathrooms with showers were not available and there was no water at the boat. The only restrooms were at the marina office, which was quite a walk from where the boat was parked. The laundry room (in the same building) was open and available. The deli/shop was closed for the season.
The place is very dog friendly, especially that time of year with hardly anyone around.
The marina is walking distance to town, but it isn't a short walk. Not many shops or restaurants were open during our stays. We did walk to a small local market in town -- it was at least a mile away. There was no courtesy car. I wound up renting a car before my departure and then again on my return so I had more flexibility for provisioning and making airport runs. There's a Walmart outside of town that sells just about anything you might need.
The main benefit of this stop -- at least to me -- was its proximity to St. Louis and its airport.

After 3 days of anchoring and tying up, Alton Marina was a welcome stop. Took advantage of their AGLCA special and booked 10 days. Fueled up, topped off water, and pumped out . Wi-Fi was good. Bathrooms/showers were clean and appointed. Deli was great. Robert the Marina Manager was wonderful during are stay and when I was trying to make arrangements for our stay. Can not say enough about this marina. Mac's Downtown was our favorite restaurant. We would stay here again.

12 Oct 23 Sam at GreatLoopAcademy.com here on a training trip with a 430 Mainship with a 3' 8" draft. Stopped here for a rest, pump out, fuel, and water. Stayed two days due to weather and visited Fast Eddie's of course. Nice marina, well run by Rob. Snack bar is great but limited hours this time of year. No courtesy car, limited rental choices and hit/miss Uber, but town is well within walking distance. Home of Miles Davis. Statue in the town square area. Good T-Mobile and Verizon service.

Wonderful marina. Easy to book by phone. Deep water (10 feet) and covered slips on transient dock, which is close to clean, private bathrooms. Electric, water, fuel, small deli and convenience store on site. They were short-staffed and doing water system maintenance during our stay, but were very helpful and customer-focused. Close to town and the Mel Price Lock. Call the lock before you leave, if southbound. We had a 4-hour wait and it was nice to do most of that at the marina.

Stayed one night on a T head. just a little under staffed but courteous and dock hands try very hard. Still learning but great attitudes. We stayed on the "T" at J dock power was mediocre at best (98 Volts)
So be aware of that. Jill the Harbour Master is awesome. Only thing I would say is be prepared for a 3% add to credit card for fuel etc. Not unexpected. overall great place. Handled our 5 foot draft ok mostly saw 6-10 ft.
