I'm not sure what was going on in Salina that day, but finding an available room anywhere in town was difficult. My trip was down i70, not i35, so getting to this place took a bit of a detour. It turned out to be a detour I was happy I took. This best western is a far nicer place than any of the Motels I found on i70 in the area. Rooms are spacious, Nice flat screen TV, refrigerator, and microwave. It's close to the airport, though I wasn't there for that reason. While there the indoor pool was closed for repairs, but beyond that most everything in the place looked nice, worked properly, and stayed pretty quiet. Continental Breakfast was nice, and about a mile east of the place (9th street I believe) is basically Restaurant row for Salina. I definitely would stay here again. Very nice staff.
