This is an older LQ, possibly a reincarnation of some other brand. The rooms were comfortable and clean, although not as big as the 1st LQ we stayed in near St Louis during this trip. Check in was friendly and prompt. As with other hotels on this trip, being pet friendly was a must, and this seemed to be a top choice among the few pet friendly hotels available in the Salina area. There were more guests with pets at this hotel than at any other we stayed in during this trip. The hotel has a well maintained grassy area for dogs with clean up supplies and a wastebasket located, perhaps not coincidentally, opposite a Super-8 motel that's across the street.
We arrived early, so I was able to get in a few laps at the hotel's indoor pool by myself. The pool is decent sized and thankfully wasn't over chlorinated. From what I've seen in recent reviews, the pool's been closed for repairs. Hopefully, they'll get that fixed soon.
The location is convenient, right off of I-70, but the hotel itself is oddly wedged in on a narrow strip of land. There's a large McDonalds and a truck stop opposite the front parking lot.
Just behind the hotel and to the north were manufacturing plants, and truck lots. Beyond the plants is just an endless expanse of Kansas farmland and prairie. In fairness though,
except for the occasional tractor trailer, there didn't seem to be much activity in the plants at night.
Aside from some other hotels, fast food joints and gas station/c-stores, there's not much nearby. Fortunately, downtown Salina is just a few miles south and has a decent variety of restaurants.
By this point in our journey, I was getting tired of hotel breakfast buffets, so I'll just they rounded up the usual suspects and leave it at that.
All in all, it's a good hotel for a night. If I were traveling through this area again with a pet, it'd be my 1st choice. Otherwise, for the price we paid, I'd give some of the other hotels in the area equal consideration.
