My husband and I stayed here for a trip to KC for a Royals/Cardinals game. The location is great for getting to the game. The front desk staff was the best. They were very friendly and welcoming. They were happy to help with directions or to just banter about baseball. The room was clean and comfortable. We liked the room.... More

We were in town with our rugby club. The Staff was very helpful and accommodating. Weather issues had us back at the hotel with a catered lunch. The staff opened the breakfast area for us to use and brought out a banquet table for serving. The rooms are very nice and very clean.

Stay was fine. Breakfast was good. Multiple rooms were booked under one name. The name and ihg member number were never changed at checkin even though the correct information was given to the receptionist. Upon checkout, the receipts were incorrect and could not be changed without "tech support". Make sure the receptionist enters the correct information prior to taking you... More

Rarely have I enjoyed a place so much. I stayed an extra day. Quiet, clean, felt as if folk cared about the place. Good breakfast. Loved the warmish pool. Inexperienced swimmers should be careful being in deep water and trying to grab into poolside as it us slick.

This property was chosen as the meeting site and I'm glad it was. While it was right on the highway, the rooms were very quiet. Everyone was nice from the front desk folks on ... even the night staff (who aren't always on the same page as the rest of a staff). They were 'spot on' with my questions about... More

I stayed for a few days while in the area on business and found this hotel to be very quiet with comfortable beds and friendly staff. There were some issues with proper draining of the sink and tub as others have mentioned in reviews, but it certainly wasn't a huge problem.
