“Nice place to cool off for a night after a hot day on the road!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

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.

This was a nice newer best western. We have 3 kids and are always looking for hotel rooms that can accommodate a family of 5 well at a reasonable price and this hotel worked out well. Very good price for what you get. We are from colorado and met family from Missouri half way. Salina KS turned out to be a very nice place to spend a long weekend. Hotel a bit off the main drag but that just makes it quiet which I like.

The hotel is around 6 miles off 1-70 but it was worth it as we wanted a pet-friendly hotel ( a few dollars more). The staff seems to be working hard to make this a good hotel. The room was large with lots of room. The pool had just been opened. The breakfast was adequate. The parking lot is small but our rental truck fit. The only negative was the room was over the pool and the sounds of screaming children could be heard for a number of hours but thankfully they had stopped by bed time. I would ask for a room not over the pool. I hope the staff continue to improve the property and it becomes the best in town!

Room Tip: Stay away from rooms over the pool!

The room was very nice, clean, and quiet. There was adequate room for 3 people to move around in. There was a very nice outdoor sitting area to enjoy the beautiful weather. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is convenient to a variety of eating places.

These folks have a knack for making us feel like friends or family. - while being efficient they have avoided the cold corporate feeling of some chains. This may be the reason we need to reserve in advance.

After two weeks of travel and motel stays, this site was the one we chose as being he best. Everything was great about this location!! The bed was comfortable, it was quiet, easy to negotiate wifi, breakfast was great and staff was personable and helpful. There is no comparison to this site and your site in Vega, Texas, which you need to remove from your chain..WE HAD RESERVATIONS BUT DID NOT STAY!

Traveling across country we found this hotel to be a fine place to stay. The staff was tremendously helpful - even in cleaning up the dining area after a family with several preschoolers! One thing, tough - the rooms have an unusual layout for the commode and shower/and the separate sink area. There was no outlet in the shower (room) area so we could use the night light that we travel with. No big deal, but a bit inconvenient.
