For 2 years in a row we have stopped in Kansas City on our way from Colorado to Arkansas. This hotel is such a great, safe place to stay. There are restaurants all around the place, it's less than 10 minutes from Schlitterbahn, and 2 minutes drive time to Target. The rooms are clean, the pool is clean, and the breakfast is great. They have cookies in the afternoon which is a great hit with the kids! We will be back again this year.
