It was clean and the breakfast was decent, so they have that going for them. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, though, it's true that you get what you pay for. The wifi was extremely disappointing and the shower was very small. The biggest problem, though, is that the walls and ceilings are so thin that sleep... More

The Hotel is a little hard to find, the signs are a small. The rooms were very nice and clean. Hotel staff was very nice and helpful. The Wifi is terrible, the bed had only and light blanket and no extra in the room. The room only has a shower. Breakfast was good but the food was in two different... More

We stayed at the Sleep Inn on our way out of town for the weekend. We checked in late and the guy checking us in was nice, but a man of few words. As we walked through the hallway and into our room I thought I smelled cigarette smoke. It was a turn off to me. Our room was very... More

We give 4 stars instead of 5 only because this is not a luxury hotel, though it is fairly luxurious for us as we stay for business trips. We always receive a west facing room if we request, enjoy the hot tub and even the pool in winter as it is around 85 degrees (a wonderful temp for a big... More

This Sleep Inn was pretty typical. It seems to be a little older, a lot of brass fixtures and modular furniture, but newer bedding and chairs. The breakfast was not as good as many Sleep Inns, no biscuits and gravy, processed eggs. The staff at check in was standing around talking and not enthused about talking to me or helping... More

We stayed at this hotel after attending an event at Seven Flags. Conveniently located just off I-35/80 and Hickman Road next to Living History Farms, this hotel is easy to get to and the location was great for what we were doing. This Sleep Inn is nothing spectacular, but you can tell they're trying - the rooms are contemporary and... More

This is was an experience that I had not anticipated. The room was small as most Sleep Inns are but it was the first one without a refrigerator. We requested one but did not get a room with one. I was told that they are busy putting them in each room but they didn't look all that busy to me.... More

Stayed here after slick snowpacked highways cut short our trip from Kansas City to Minnesota. The staff were professional but nope all that friendly. The room was clean but could use a little remodeling to upgrade the appearance of the wall coverings and shower caulk. Overall it was okay but nothing extraordinary.

We stayed at the Sleep Inn for one night. There were no major issues, but the hotel was fairly lackluster, and the bathroom left a lot to be desired. There was a very large shower, but the water pressure was so low that we could not change the shower head from "shower" to "pulsate" or else the water would simply... More

Stayed here on a Friday/Saturday 2 night vacation for a family event. Very nice facility, adequate parking. It is very difficult to locate this place. My GPS couldn't find it and many other people said the same thing. The Machine Shed restaurant is nearby, so enter that address instead, then drive part the Comfort Inn to the Sleep Inn. Floors...
