We stayed here while attending a KC game and visiting the city. The hotel was very clean. The staff was very friendly. We needed extra towels and extra blankets (2 requests). Both brought to our room in a timely manner. Our toilet started running constantly but was fixed within an hour once we notified the front desk. The pool is... More

The hotel is clean and workers nice, but if you go there looking to be able to get cabs and delivery, you will not be able to. The horrible thing is that the vendors--Pizza Hut and Yellow Cab among them--won't tell you that they don't service the area until you've waited an unusually long time and call back. I hold... More

I chose this location because it is close to a birthday party I was attending. I was happy to get an early check in and the lady who checked me in was very nice and accommodating, however the evening front desk staff(young girl with redish blonde hair) was not as helpful. I called down for help with my heating unit... More

This hotel was clean enough but had less than welcoming staff. Actually asking questions to them felt like you were burdening them. Tv didn't work, staff didn't care, didn't have change for the vending machine and told me to walk a mile down the road to convenience store. Booked a reservation, in which they failed to mention they were going... More

This hotel is located a bit off the Interstate and in kind of a dicey area, but the room was clean and large and check-in very easy. The gym is rudimentary at best and not all equipment worked. Breakfast was OK and the server very friendly but they did not have the automatic pancake machine. We got bottles of water... More
