Well, I didn't think this place existed. I was surprised when the Hospital staff pointed me to this hotel. No Frills. Clean. Good internet. Microwave and Fridge that worked. The room had Baseboard heat. No problems with the room staying warm. I liked the two recliners in the room. That was a really nice touch. The room is surprisingly quiet.... More

Pros- clean room, friendly staff, free WiFi that works great, great beds, scalding hot shower, not expensive, within walking distance to a truck stop, subway and Pizza Hut. 32in flatscreen tv. Cons- some road noise, rooms are a little outdated.

This is a no frills hotel but the rooms were clean, linen was clean and crisp. If your expecting a Marriott or Hilton, keep going! But if you need a clean and quiet place to sleep, you will get it here. Rooms had a small fridge and microwave and very hot water. The people that run the place were also... More

The people that run this place are the salt of the Earth. Kathy and her husband are the best. There aren't alot of options in St. Francis, but this is the place to stay if you do stay here. The worst thing you can say is that there aren't alot of places to eat at in St. Francis. The truck... More

Just finished a month-long bicycle tour of the Midwest and had the chance to stay in places from fancy to "okay, I can make it one night though this dump." Out of about 30 different places, Homesteader was the second least expensive and provided service and comfort far above that of some more expensive Super 8s and such. Friendly service,... More

Nice older motel, very clean, friendly staff. Fridge and microwave in the room. Truck stop across the street serves breakfast. Lady at the desk recommended a good place for dinner. If I am ever in St. Francis again, I will stay here.

I needed to be in western Kansas for a few days. I tried this place. I am glad I did. New clean carpet and bed; nice flat screen TV and a great easy chair. Mostly though, I appreciated the down home comfort and atmosphere. The management really made my stay nice. This is a welcome home place. I will return... More

Nice price for a decent room. Room was clean, water pressure was great. Will likely be back as there is plenty for a rock hound to look at. This a little known part of Kansas, and very likely you are visiting with a purpose. However, if you end up here randomly, look to stay here.

Only found this place because of the other great trip advisor reviews. It's fabulous. The owner was very nice and laid back. The room is more than adequate for a stop off headed down the road. No frills. Clean, comfy bed and recliner. Fridge, cable, microwave in the room. Wifi is faster than the brand new best western plus we... More

I was in town for a wedding. The room was very nice for a small town and a great price. The hotel staff was very pleasant. The room was clean, and fresh. The heat wasn't working well but they brought us heaters and made sure we were confortable. Just a wonderful stay... Thank you for the hospitality.
