While the approach to the hotel does leave one wondering as to the safety/security of the area, we did not experience any problems, bikes left on bike rack were there in the morning. Check in-out was a breeze and front desk made a great recommendation for dinner. Room was a large suite and very clean top to bottom, unlike our stay the previous night in Joplin, MO. Breakfast was standard "free" fare, we hit it first thing and food was hot and plentiful. Towels and linens were thick and soft. Would definitely recommend and stay here in the future. Easy access to I40 a definite plus.
