We travel to the KC are quite frequently and have stayed at 20+ hotels in the area, but this was by far the best experience we have ever had. The rooms were clean, well kept, with comfortable beds and linen,and even included a refrigerator and microwave. The staff were extremely helpful, friendly, courteous, and engaging. They really made the family... More

I hadn't considered Drury Inns for many, many years but ended up staying here with a bus trip group and was very pleasantly surprised at the luxury and quality of the hotel. It was SPOTLESSLY clean, more so than some higher dollar hotels I've stayed at. The breakfast was pretty typical and average as hot breakfasts go. I didn't have... More

We've never stayed at a Drury Inn before and if they are all like this they have our allegiance from now on! I loved the swimming pool area. The hot tub was nice and hot and warmed us up for the cooler pool. The pool was fantastic! If you swam underneath the wall you came up on the other half... More

My husband and I stayed here when we were in town for the Jets/Chiefs game. The hotel is very conveniently located to the sports complex. They have a spacious and welcoming lobby and the breakfast was very good. You get a lot of different selections - eggs, potatoes, biscuits, sausage and bacon, cereals, yogurt, fruit, breads, waffles. I thought it... More

We like the Drury Inn & Suites when we travel across the Midwest. You can always count on friendly staff and clean accommodations. The full breakfast each morning is an assortment of make it yourself waffles, oatmeal, sausage, biscuits, eggs and sweets. Throw in the nightly light dinner and drinks, and you have a travelers dream. Plus they welcome Fido!... More

Everyone is exceptionally friendly and helpful...from front desk to dining area. Great location for downtown activities (just far enough away), good shopping, dining and movie cinema in immediate area.

I have stayed at many motels/hotels in the past and this was by far one of the best experiences. They were patient, kind and went the extra mile. Clean and even housekeeping did wonderful. I had a very late check in and the staff was just as kind as if I got there during normal hours, which in itself a... More
