Management took 20 minutes to answer a complaint about loud music. When I was out for a smoke, there was one room where gay men were coming in and out by the dozen. Management was HIGHLY RUDE when these complaints were brought up. She offered no sort of refund. STAY AWAY FROM THIS GHETTO HOTEL!!!!!

I have been staying at American Inn when in town, and I am glad to do so. After the poor customer service I received from Motel 6 in Blue Springs, this place is so much nicer, cleaner, and conveniently located than Motel 6. It is a good value for the price and has a convenient location. The lady working the... More

The room is so-so. The best thing I can say about this place is the location is great. It's just off the Interstate, has a BBQ place across the street, and a shopping center just behind it. Virtually all hotels serve some kind of breakfast, this place serves nothing except coffee. That's a deal breaker for me. Unfortunately, I have... More

We stay at this location when in KC.Everything you need is usally close by. The staff is what makes this place worth the stay. This location does not serve any type of breakfast, (which is surprising this day in time), but they have fresh coffee in the lobby 24-7 due to the fact that a lot of professional drivers stay...

I stayed at this hotel during my vacation, from California to Virginia. I stayed one night each way. If I had had a bad experience I would have reported it to you.

Ok so the stars are figured based on the answers to the questions above. I understand now how this place averaged any % OF A STAR! I am so disgustingly disgusted! Any positive feedback must be getting posted by the management/owner! Not even a trucker would stay here! No Offense! I would leave right now If I were not scared... More

Dear "Girl With An Opinion" I want to offer an apology to you for your unpleasant experience while staying with us. We have always maintained an occupancy rate between 75-80% and most of these are corporate accounts that give us continued repeat business. It is unfortunate that you feel the way you do.We strive to maintain a place where our... More
