We spent one night in this hotel as we were driving cross country. The room was comfortable and the location fit our needs. What I did not care for was the staff (both evening and daytime). They were pleasant, but it seemed to be a forced, false pleasantness that was actually uncomfortable. The hotel does not offer a free breakfast.... More

This is a very nice hotel. I stayed here for four days with my adult disabled son. The staff was very accommodating to our needs. I especially like the breakfast vouchers. You get to choose what you want from a menu, which sure beats the stale danish pastries served in most places. We had breakfast burritos and veggie omelets, which... More

Susanne C, Thank you so much for taking the time to give us such awesome feedback!! I'm so happy to hear how pleased you were with your accommodations and Kem's Restaurant.

We were staying there for show me state games with our team. We had issues from the beginning with the incorrect prices for our reservations which resulted in multiple unecessary phone calls for our parents since the rate was guaranteed with a contract, this issue was corrected prior to check in. Upon arrival we were granted an early checkin since... More

Nice large rooms and fantastic beds! Not especially close to anything - it is an Interstate hotel - but it was a nice surprise. The staff was very nice, there was a nice little bar area and all was very clean and new. We loved it.
