“This made us always want to stay at a Drury Inn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Drury Inns are not 5 star hotels, but they are clean. The free food meant that we didn't spend any money on meals because they gave us breakfast, an afternoon snack and dinner with drinks. The menu is limited, especially on the free drinks, but we weren't on this vacation because of the food.

The big plus for this hotel is the staff. They were very friendly and they were kind to our dogs, even asking how they were doing when I went downstairs to get popcorn for us.

The room was comfortable, and it was not far from the places we wanted to visit while we were in the area.

First, the front desk getting checked in to the hotel was fantastic. They were having trouble with their key card machine, but they were so friendly and nice, that I did not mind the wait. Explained all the attractions and features well. We stayed in a 2-queen bed room on the 3rd floor. It was very clean, up to date decor. It was very quiet. Beds were very comfortable. Lots of outlets for charging all of our devices. TV was a nice big flat screen and they had a lot more channels than most hotels have. A big plus was that it had a thermostat on the wall instead of a window unit, so the noise and temperature were great. No waking up all night as the heat turned on and off and no stuffy nose the next morning from all the dust blowing around.
Breakfast in the morning was scrambled eggs, sausage patties, potato wedges, biscuits and gravy. You would also make a waffle in the waffle iron and there were lots of cereal and pastry choices. The breakfast was very fresh and very good.
We did not get to partake in their evening buffet, but they have 3 free beer/wine drinks per adult from 5-7:30 and a light dinner(that night was chili dogs and mac & cheese).
We had a very nice stay and I would definitely recommend this location and stay here again!

Room Tip: Chose a room that is on the opposite side of I-35 for less noise.

After a 10 hour car ride, nothing is better than a Drury Inn. This one was no exception. We travel with our dog and they are always willing to accomodate pets. My husband is a smoker and they do have smoking rooms. And, the windows open so that fresh air can be let into the room. The breakfast was fresh, hot and delicious. The room was spotless and the king bed was so comfortable and appointed with white duvet covers and silky soft sheets. Will always chose a Drury Inn when available....

Stayed for two nights during an event at the American Royal. Easy access without being right on the interstate. We were greeted properly and staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Room was nice and beds were soft and very comfortable. I felt it was an excellent value for the price paid.

The staff is nice, but the room smells of overpowering room disinfectant. I opened the window and 5 hours later it still smelled bad. The bathtub was dirty.The walls are thin you can hear noise from the next room, take ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. The evening snack is nice for alcohol drinkers but the food is not very good. But if you look at ratings of other nearby hotels this is probably the best choice, just don't let the excellent reveiws fool you, it is only average.

We were going to a marriage conference and found this to be within blocks of our conference. A great find easy access only 1 block off I-35. Ellen was so nice and helpful checking us in plus helping with the food at the evening kickback. Drury Inn is the place to stay if you have family and looking to save some money. Popcorn and soda's in the lobby. Also the kickback is every night not the Mon-Thurs like some chains offer.
Breakfast was normal hotel fare but did have a crock-pot of oatmeal and yogurt.
You can walk across the lot and eat at Denny's or I-Hop and a K-Mart in walking distance.
We will stay at Drury Inn's whenever we get the chance.
