4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Comfortable rooms. Handy location close to several restaurants and I-70. One of the best breakfasts found in a Best Western Hotel. Internet was great. Would have preferred comforter on bed, but otherwise no complaints.

This is an older property. However the rooms are very nice. The room was a bit small, but 4 fit in well. Very comfy beds and let me say, most often the "free breakfast" included in some hotel stays is less than appetizing. This place's breakfast was very nice. Excellent selection of breakfast fare. Great reception and check out. Not... More

The room was ok but a little dusty, bathroom was small, the staff were very good. In fact, they were the best part of this hotel. The non- smoking room had the smell of cigarettes. The breakfast was great. The pool was a welcome relief after a day's drive.

The front desk clerk Julia was friendly and knowledgeable about the hotel and the area. The front lobby was clean and bright. The breakfast was hot and plentiful. Breakfast attendant Karen was very cheerful, very chipper and she and her co-worker kept the pans and bins and coffee pots filled. So there was a lot to like. But ... the... More

Booked on Expedia. Mid price range, but we didn't want a cheap place we would regret. It is an older place that is well maintained and updated. The staff was great. We got there around 1:15 p.m. and check in wasn't until 3. She let us swim in the pool until our room was ready. She immediately called and had... More

We prefer to stay at Best Western motels as they are usually pretty consistently clean, nice and comfortable. This is an older motel and the restroom was VERY small. We called ahead for reservations and were to be next door to relatives that were meeting us there. We were also told that our room would have a sofa bed couch.......in... More

I liked the location of this hotel the best. It is situated just a few miles from the KC Royals stadium where I dropped off my hubby and 14 year old son. It's close to food and other shops. The staff here is top notch! Karen, who scrambled each morning of our visit ensured the breakfast buffet was always stocked... More
