I made an advanced purchase/reservation on the internet for my room and saved a ton of money. I only paid about half of what I normally pay for a room at a Candlewood Suites Hotel. This made me a little suspicious about the hotel. When you arrive at the hotel you'll notice that there is a security door that requires a key card to get into the lobby. If you don't have a key card then the attendant has to let you in. The attendant at the front desk was very friendly. In fact, my mom dropped her purse somewhere between the front door and our room and the attendant brought the purse to our room (and my mom's purse still had all of the money and credit cards inside). I would give the front desk attendant 5 stars! The hallways have some wear and tear on them but the rooms look like they have been updated within the last couple of years. I couldn't detect any bedbugs when sleeping. I was a little leary of the location of the hotel when I arrived. You'll notice that some of the nearby retailers have the metal security gates on the doors/windows. However, I didn't have any problems and felt pretty safe. There are a lot of the typical retailers close by (Walmart, McDonalds, Pizza Hut, etc...However, I went to Jack in the Box for dinner and got combo #12 and the lady forgot to put my curly fries in my to-go bag. The hotel was very quiet which is a big plus. I would recommend that you ask for a room on the 3rd floor. I would definitely recommend this hotel. In fact, I've already made a reservation to stay here on my way back to Kansas City. If you purchase/reserve your room 10 days in advance you can save a ton of money.
