This is definitely a budget hotel. We were in town to see Nathaniel Rateliff and the night sweats and we just need a cheap place to stay for the night. It seemed fairly clean, but the bathroom floor looked like it hadn't been swept or mopped; it was pretty dusty. The room we stayed in was tiny (110). We kept... More

We come to Kansas City about every othermonth for visits to KU Med and have stayed at numerous places. We tried this hotel and were pleasantly surprised how much we enoyed our stay. We felt safe and overall it was clean and comfortable and front desk was totally awesome. The Breakfast was adequate but not outsanding very basic.

Front desk staff was indifferent to customers. No greetings, no smiles. Room was disgusting - old worn out rug, blood stain on sheet, stained comforter. Neighborhood looked questionable at best. The only highlight was the very friendly breakfast attendant.

We went here as a group for a softball tournament. When we got there, even after a confirmation the night before...they said we didn't have a room. The hotel clerk was EXTREMELY RUDE...told my daughter she should sleep in our truck and let someone else watch our 4 month old grandson since we didn't have a room. The manager was... More

A few years ago we stayed in a very clean and nice Rodeway Inn in Merriam, Kansas. Last night we stopped there again while passing through, and the change is disappointing. The place is overdue renovation. The rugs throughout are showing their age and have an aura of needing cleaning, although employees were observed vacuuming, so they must have been... More

Started out having a difficult time even finding the place. At night the "new sign cover" is not visible and you only see a sign for Comfort Inn. I hear its been like that for a year. Front desk lady, Cheryl, was VERY nice. Cant say that for the rest of the rotating staff over the next 2 day. Room... More

Had to stay here for a local meeting. Was able to check in at 11:00 am. Front desk clerk was cordial. Room was clean and well kept. The breakfast the next morning left something to be desired, but for the price I would stay here again.

We are having a family reunion here and find this motel to be very accommodating and nice. Desk staff very nice. Even said we could use the breakfast room for meeting. Nice and clean, comfortable room.

The hotel is ok. Nothing special. If you are looking for a comfy bed with not a lot of amenities this is your spot. The front desk is adequate, breakfast is sub par. If you need to stay in this part of town the hotel may be ok. Do not go out of your way to stay here
