We just opened the pool on July 26th,2016. The pool is now fabulous! Many people are now enjoying this amazing indoor/outdoor pool. Come by to see what we have to offer. Every month we will be adding (for example: two portable putting baskets for disc golfers) or upgrading/improving our rooms and our meeting space. Upgrading a property does not happen... More

The Knights Inn is under new ownership and they say they will be adding fun amenities and will become a Ramada Worldwide four star property. It was right off the I-35 Freeway exist and close to local attractions, including Emporia State University. The service was great, the staff were fun and knowledgeable, and we enjoyed the fresh waffles along with... More

Were, going to stay across the street and the Econolodge but found out upon arrival that they were going to charge BOTH of our CLC cards for the stay so we went over to the Guest House. Room was clean and comfy. The only negative was that there was NO a/c in the breakfast room and it was VERY hot... More

I had made reservation in December which was cancelled just two weeks prior to my trip in June. No explanation. Too late to book anywhere else as city is full. Clearly overbooked themselves. Bad business.

Great front desk staff. Our family booked 9 rooms to celebrate my daughters graduation. Sholanda (spelling?) was fantastic. She set up tables with table cloths, chairs in the courtyard and welcomed us. She made sure we had rooms near our party location. It was a great time for all our guests. It is a dated facility that brought back memories... More

I booked a room for one with a "King size" bed. I use quotations as it was really two mattresses put together. The lamp shade was broken, there were holes in the blanket, stains on the floor and the sheet, the room smelled horrible, not to mention there was some sort of brown sticky substance on the packaging of the...

We only saw it late at night and in off season, but place is definitely 1990's. Everything worked well but not a bright cheerful atmosphere like I look forward too. The morning breakfast was very limited and in the darkest room ever.

OK so I was a little leary of staying here from some of the other reviews, but could not pass up the price so we took a chance. We were on the main floor with a door that opened up to outiside, our room was clean and so was our bathroom, yes could have used a few updates but what... More

Lobby is nice. Rooms ok, need some updates. There is no lounge. There is a nice bar & grill just to north of them though. Nice pool, they close it at 10pm however. Do Not get in hot tub, the smell was horrible. The breakfast isn't typical, offer sandwiches, cereal, pastries, hard boiled eggs,yogurt and waffles

The room was fairly clean except carpet and bedspread. The breakfast bar had empty coffee pots, food was on serving trays, not individually wrapped. Milk was left out on bar in a spigot vessel, did not see refrigeration. Could not find any employees to offer assistance refilling very small coffee pots. Front desk area was nice.
