I reminded the owner the about price he quoted and he replied "if you don't like it you can go look somewhere else. After driving for 14 hours straight I had no intention of doing... More

Stayed here as we were traveling Route 66. The rooms were clean, the owner was friendly. A couple stains on the carpet, but nothing to get upset about. It was quiet, the bed was super comfortable. We would go back here.

Baxter Inn is a nice, clean and well maintained motel to stay in the city of Baxter Springs, KS. I was extremely happy to stay in Baxter Inn. The motel is in a very quite area to have a good sleep. The stuff was very friendly and helpful. I will stay in this motel if I ever travel this way.

Pre booked this hotel in advance got charged $10 more than first quoted. Got given the wrong room key twice. Once in the room there was a nasty smell and the carpets felt all weird. Slept with our clothes on and left very early 6am the next day. It is a good location for exploring the little town though.

Wanted to surprise some friends & stayed here for one night. Saw a review for this place from 5 years ago that warned of this place--don't know if I missed more recent ones or what, but I thought that they probably improved or had a bad day--WRONG! Stay at a Baxter Springs B&B or in Miami OK or Joplin MO--both... More

After I booked the hotel I read some reviews of it and thought that I made a wrong decision but then when I got there it was all up to my expectations. Friendly and helpful staff, comfortable and clean sleeping arrangement. I would recommend this hotel based on the standard of the room and the exceptional value.

We stayed for one night only (thankfully). Dated room, smell of damp, stained towels, no staff in sight. Room rate was $60 dollars (excl. tax) and supposedly included continental breakfast. The 'breakfast' consisted of coffee and packaged cake and nowhere to sit. Compared to similar range motels along the route, not good at all. In the morning, there was nobody... More

Clean. Not much to say about it. Not bad for a small town with no where to stay. Continental breakfast was worst I have seen. Staff not friendly. If you just need a place to sleep it is ok. Small town has a lot of history.

On our Route 66 road trip this place was oft recommended. We found it a disappointment. We were charged $75 for a worn out, truck-stop type accomodation. Room extremely dated and tired. Aircon didn't work, no hair drier and no in-room coffee. Poor breakfast of juice, coffee or prepacked cake. Next door steakhouse was essentially a fast food style enterprise... More
