This is the second time we have stayed at this particular Holiday Inn. The experience was similar to our first stay. We chose the location because it is close to our son's house. The staff is very friendly as is the manager Pam. Our room was clean and comfortable. We requested a handicapped room and the bathroom was large and... More

My son and I stayed here for one of the World Series games. It was nice. The staff was very friendly. The room and the rest of the hotel were clean. The location was good for Kauffman Stadium, only about 5-6 minutes away, with easy access to the main highways. The only negative about this hotel was the breakfast. It... More

We travel alot and like staying at Holiday Inn Express whenever we can. This one was no disappointment. The room was clean, check in smooth. The pool was clean. We did have some noise from a patron staying above us in another room. Not a hotel issue . Breakfast was hot and enjoyable. One suggestion is to turn up the... More

I was staying here after my wife had surgery and the staff and management, especially Pamela Hayward, the GM, could not have been more accommodating and caring. Due to several issues, the reservation date had to be changed twice from the original. Need extra pillows to prop up a leg? No problem, how many do you need. How about a... More

Room was clean and reasonably well maintained. Hot water in the shower was not working. Informed reception they said that maintenance would look at it, no one came to fix it. Me and my son had to take cold water shower and leave as we had to check out. There are a few restaurants close by which is convenient. Not... More

We stayed here on our way to Colorado. Location was close to downtown, and KC ballpark. Many breakfast choices, pet friendly, comfortable beds, our room was very quiet. After driving 9 hours, we wanted to find a good BBQ, the hotel gave us several options in the area, the front desk staff was very personable and professional.

We used this hotel not only for a small meeting, but due to being close to the RMA. Nice staff, the front lady who checked us in (late afternoon, sorry I forgot her name) was very friendly.
