My family and I stayed here for three nights. Check in and check out were a breeze. The room was great. It was clean and nicely furnished. They had a new flat screen TV, recliner, desk, several lamps, and a bench. We were easily able to rearrange the furniture to make it safe for our 15 month old. The bed was comfortable and at one point all four of us were sleeping in it with plenty of room (we have a 15 month old and a 7 year old). The a/c was able to keep the room cool. The shower/toilet area was a bit small but sufficient. The shower head provided a nice strong shower.
The room was pretty well insulated and quiet for the most part. The first night there was a softball team surrounding us in other rooms and we didn't hear them at all. The last night we could hear the people in the room above us through the ceiling. I think the lady was just a loud talker and we couldn't hear her well unless we turned the a/c off.
The best and most budget friendly part of our stay was the included breakfast and "snack" which was really dinner. Breakfast consisted of waffles, biscuits and gravy, eggs, ham/cheese/salsa for the eggs, french toast, donuts, and fruit. It was consistently hot and fresh. The snack time served as our dinner. They had baked potatoes, hot dogs, chili, nachos, macaroni and cheese, and taco meat/beans while we were there. They also include three complimentary alcoholic drinks per adult each evening. We save money and time by not having to get out and drive to a restaurant every morning and evening. The only down side was that the dining room was hot every evening, BUt we are in the middle of a heat wave.
We spent two evenings in the pool. It was pretty clean and was busy with all the kids and the heat.
The hotel is conveniently located next to the highway but you can't hear the noise. There is a Krispy Kreme, Denny's, and Caribou Coffee right there.
We will definitely be staying here again when we return to KC.
