“Good place to stay when visiting Salina”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I stayed here Monday-Friday recently during a consulting assignment. The staff was extremely helpful, the breakfasts were great and overall quality of the property was well worth the price. The location near I-70 was convenient and a Starbucks was within an easy walk....along with a McDonald's for those that like fast food. All in all, a very good experience!

Room Tip: I liked the fact that the hotel was dog friendly. Most people traveling with dogs seemed to be on th...

If you are looking for an economical, clean place to spend one night while you are "wheeling" down I-70 or I-35, this is a good choice. That is why I give it a "very good" rather than just an "average" rating. It is convenient. The staff is nice. The rooms are typical La Quinta. So why is it better than average? I think it is the convenience and the price. We chose to open a bottle of wine from the car and do a take-out sandwich from Subway---not a bad choice for tired travelers. But if you are looking for other places to eat, you have to drive a bit. Everything close is fast food.
But if you are up and on the road early in the morning--and don't need luxury for such a stop--this is a very good place.

This hotel was spanking clean and in a great location for us, right off I70. The grounds are wonderful for walking your dog, which is welcomed here. The hotel had comfortable beds and great amenities. And there is a huge, clean McDonald's next door for late night hunger.

We enjoyed our one night here, and the warm welcome we received. We would stay here again!

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.

Pros : Reasonably good breakfast. Examples : the usual microwave sausage/microwave Omelette fare. Cereal for the kids. Some pastries. Some fresh fruit. Juice coffee water milk yogurt all available Overall a pretty good included breakfast better than average for this type of hotel. Front desk staff courteous. Clean room. Close to highway. Cable TV with multiple channels.

Cons : Pool closed. Shower water pressure weak. Refrigerator did not have a freezer section. Icemaker did not work on our floor. Wireless connection was hit and miss.

Overall: adequate hotel; nothing to rave about but did the job for a night stay. Probably a touch above the usual look La Quinta experience.
