O.K. first things first...I had a great night's sleep on the best mattress I've ever slept on anywhere! This is a great hotel. Living on the west coast, I was unfamiliar with the Drury Inn and Suites hotel brand. It is no longer and is at t he top of my list for future travel. Great welcome, Three free drinks... More

As always, Drury Inns delivers a consistantly good value: hot breakfast and comfort food for dinner accompanied with an adult beverage. Rooms are clean and pleasant. Only drawback is closing the pool area at 10 PM. It is the only outside area to sit back and enjoy a good cigar after a long day.

Great quiet location, even if very close to the highway (but still I emphasize quite). Friendly staff. VERY clean, pretty much spotless rooms.. Unusually comfortable beds (and pillows). Free hot breakfast had good options. Close to attractions. Definitely worth the stay. Also, great adjacent family restaurant.

Excellent staff, clean stylish room, free pop and popcorn, free drinks and hor devours, awesome free breakfast and such an easy location to get to with plenty of eats and shopping close by. It was so great we booked our next... More

We were heading east on I-70 and wanted to stay east of Kansas City to avoid the morning rush. This hotel is relatively new and the staff is welcoming. The room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was the typical scrambled eggs, sausage, yogurt, cold cereal, fruit.Would stay here again and recommend to friends.Convenient to I-70.

I've stayed here several times, since it opened. It is clean, the staff is caring and the food is good! The free drinks are an added bonus😉. I have always felt very safe. As I travel alone, this is a major priority! I would and have highly recommended this place to my family and friends!

Beautiful hotel, awesome staff, and all of the free extras why would I stay any where else? Beautiful rooms,and very comfortable beds. They have a free full breakfast, free pop and popcorn everyday from 3pm till 10pm. And from 5:30 to 7pm free food and drinks. Each day there is different food available and 2 out of the 3 nights...

This hotel was great. The breakfast and kick back dinner were excellent as well as the dinning staff. Another great thing is breakfast starts at 6am. Very helpful for those who have to be to work early. Room was very clean and nice. Will defiantly stay at a Drury hotel again!!
