Perfect! Super clean! Great pool, even had a deep end much to the delight of my children! Fantastic laundry. Everything was neat and clean. The breakfast was great. The employee at the breakfast was super nice. We were there right at the end and she made sure everyone got what they wanted by asking each group before she started cleaning... More

Clean and well maintained motel. Great Location, close to a lot of places including the interstate highway, baseball/football complex, stores and places to eat. I was very satisfied. Be aware though, 14.23% in taxes (sales and occupancy) are added to the bill.

We were pleasantly surprised when we got into the room. The walkways leading to the room need repair. The room itself was very nice. The breakfast area and the food were good. Service was good and everyone was very pleasant.

Improvements have been made as far as the bathroom, dressing area, and bed but they don't hide the age. In general, it is a seedy place. The walkways are filthy. The breakfast was not good nor was there enough room to eat. Would not ever stay here again.

Location, price and hotel service were all top notch.. Staff was very professional and the ease getting to Kauffman Stadium was perfect.. We stayed for 3 nights and every night we were provided a comfortable/safe place to stay. We had a great time and will stay again in the future.

Great stay at a good value. Not very far from the Royals stadium and a nice mall for shopping close by. My family enjoyed the breakfast. They had pancakes instead of the usual waffles. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Our stay was comfortable. The room was adequate for our needs. Extremely clean. We needed an accessible room and the bathroom was large enough for everything. The only thing lacking was a place in the shower to put soap & shampoo on. We stayed recently and have reserved for a later date. Thank you Best Western.

This is a three star hotel that boasts that it is a four on checkin. We travel 2 months of the year - this is a definite 3 - maybe not even a 3. It is clean but is very average after that. The people are nice but the quality is lacking.

We are a travel agency and had a group on a 10 day tour. the Best Western was an unexpected pleasure. the room decor was nice and the beds were great. There was also room to park the bus close to our rooms. All around it was a good stay.
