“Excellent Hotel and Great Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2011

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.

Nice rooms with helpful friendly staff. Excellent breakfasts and evening meals. Price was reasonable, especially when considering free meals. They did an excellent job of communicating with us after we booked the rooms.

We were so impressed with Drury Inn that we decided that we would stay in another one on one of our stops to Colorado. We were impressed again. The staff was so friendly and were so helpful when they knew we had dogs. They gave us a room on the first floor and near the door to make it easier for us with the dogs. Just like other Drury Inn they have free internet (it was a little slow), free long distance calls, food, sodas and alcholic beverages in the afternoon. Overall it was a great stay. We are sold on Drury Inn!!!

We have come to expect the great service and friendliness of staff when we stop at a Drury and were very happy with our one night stay here. This location does not have the multi-storied foyer and glass elevator that many Drurys boast of, but it is pleasantly laid out nonetheless. The A/C in our room was not working when we arrived. They offered to move us to another room, but they had it going by early evening without ever coming into the room itself.

Easy to find right off I-35 just south of KC proper. Comfortable rooms, beds and lobby. Large, clean outdoor pool. Free food and drinks in the evenings were plentiful and appreciated after spending the day on the road. Breakfast in the morning was the usual outstanding offerings of scrambled eggs, sausage patties, biscuit&gravy, cereals (both hot and cold), and an assortment of pastries, juices and fruits.

One thing that makes this Drury stand out from others is the nice little history center located across the street. While they can not claim that President Grant every slept there, they can say that he gave a speech across the street in 1880.

In short, a great stay that I can easily recommend to any type of traveler.

Room Tip: Any room away from elevators or stair doors

We called on our way for a room, staff was very friendly and quick to get us into a room on such short notice. And for a great price too!!! They are AAA approved which was a nice suprise so the room was $8 cheaper than she quoted me over the phone. I didn't realize also that the breakfast was going to be all that it was. It was a buffett style breakfast very nice, clean, friendly staff and good food. Also, although we didn't take part, they offer a "snack time" from 5:30-7. I figured pop and popcorn but when we went by they had a large spread, from chili dogs to baking potatoes and chili, I would imagine this would be a great place for a family to stay, as both the breakfast and "snack time" were free to guest! If we are in the area again we will stay there, and now Drury Inns have been moved to the top of our list of hotels to stay at!

The room is very small. 2 adults and a 13 year old and we are stepping on one another. The room seems dated back to the late 90's. The chair is old and worn out. The table is glass and brass, looks like one I donated to charity in 1997. The bell cart tire was almost flat making it impossible to steer. Staff was friendly.

I have shared your comments with our renovation team, as we have been tentatively scheduled to have a renovation within the next year. Additionally, we have fixed the flat tire on the luggage cart.

The staff was wonderful! The food was very fresh & good! The room was very roomy, including a recliner. There were several girl soccer teams there & never heard a one. Very peaceful. The only complaints I would have is the hot water in the shower was not hot. Plus the chain on the toliet kept coming off so, we had to keep putting it back on.
