This was a nice quiet hotel. Clean rooms good price. The staff was awesome. The only down side is I did not see a side of the hotel that would have a good view. This did not matter to us as we were there to see friends. But it may matter to some one else. If you are looking for... More

This was not even close to the stadiums!! There is a Holiday Inn across the street from the stadiums(why isn't that called the sports complex, just because it has a waterpark? Very deceiving) and this is about 20 or so minutes away. It is also in a very bad part of KC. They had armed security at night walking the... More

I particular enjoyed the spacious and clean room. But when you're here on business and in need of a reliable internet connection. This is not the hotel to stay in. The internet speed was even worse than dial-up. And when we complained to the front desk about it, they did not bother checking what was wrong, more so, did not... More

The room with a king size bed was clean and furnishings were fairly new. I could hear the people upstairs walking in their rooms. It sounds like they have thin floors. The Wifi in their rooms was so slow that you thought you were in a dial up connection. I complained about it in the front desk and the guy... More

This was the fifth hotel we stayed at on our vacation and it was definitely a case of saving the best for last. We all agreed it was the best experience, even besting a high end resort. The location was great, the staff extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms were comfortable and we felt it was a very good value.

My husband and I are long time rewards members with Holiday Inn. We invested in the Holiday Inn Club Vacations time share. We left Marriott completely several years ago to stay at Holiday Inn exclusively. Tonight I'm very sorry that we did.

We have stayed at this hotel several times in the past year and a half. It is close to our daughters school (less than 2 miles). We have enjoyed every stay. The hotel is very close to Raytown,Mo.

I didn't know anything about the area when I booked this hotel and supposedly, it is not in the best part of Kansas City. I would not have known because it is right on the 350 Highway and there is not a lot around the hotel. There are several stores further down the highway: Hy-Vee and Walmart are within a... More
