This hotel is just 6 miles from the Royals and Chiefs stadium, close to shopping and movie theater, easy access to the highway. All of the staff were so nice! We stayed on a Thursday night and enjoyed our suite. Nice living space, great bed and pillows. We enjoyed a good breakfast in a very nice breakfast area. Lots of... More

When I first entered the hotel I was greeted by a smell of fresh popcorn which they offer free along with a soda free every afternoon through the evening. Check in was a breeze and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. I will stay there again when I return.

This was our first stay at a Drury Inn. What a pleasant experience. We arrived late (130 am) and we're greeted by a very pleasant desk clerk. The room was spacious and bed comfortable. Refrigerator and microwave in room. Breakfast was excellent with a room large enough to accommodate all guests. The woman taking care of the area tried her... More

We enjoyed our stay at Drury Inn. My son loved the popcorn and soda. We don't get soda very often so this was a big luxury for him. We stayed in the 2 queen suite and the room was perfect for our family. The room was very clean. We enjoyed our view from the top floor windows. We loved our... More

This hotel was really nice! The pool was neat (because it was indoor and outdoor) and you could swim underneath the windows to access either side. It was very close to the interstate, so while swimming, you can definitely hear traffic flying by. There didn't seem to be too much close by, but we only stayed while passing through on... More

Until 2 months ago I had never stayed at Drury property. Having business in the immediate area, our corporate travel booked this location and I'm glad they did. I've stayed at this location 3 times for a total of 15 nights in the past 45 days. I value cleanliness at the top and this place is well kept. The suites... More

We travel a lot, spending he majority of our nights in hotels and this is in our top 3 without a doubt. The staff is so accommodating and polite. Even when there are ball teams staying while we are there for business Drury does a great job keeping the hotel orderly and noise levels under control. The breakfast area is... More

Booked this room for a two night stay over graduation weekend. Newer property and rooms were clean, bright, and comfortable. Breakfast, included, was very good (better than most hotels). Cocktails and appetizers in evening were good on the night we were back to enjoy them. We did not use many of the amenities of the property, but they looked to... More

We were part of a JW Convention that stayed here June 12-16. We originally booked at a different Drury Inn, But was contacted about over booking and were moved here instead. The staff went out of their way to make us comfortable, even though they had two different large groups staying there that weekend! They even comped us a night... More

We found the facility to be very clean, staff very pleasant and helpful. The elevator was truly one of the fastest I have ever seen. Plus, the hot breakfast in the morning and food at night was great. Not to mention the drinks from the bar which was all included in the price of a room. Nice. We loved it.
