I was not excited about staying here, but the price was better than others nearby. It turned out to be a clean, comfortable, quiet room. Check in was friendly and quick. I would stay here again when I am in the area. They rent some rooms by the week, but it did not have the feel of that type of...

I needed a place that was right on I-70 in Kansas City, and the American Inn was perfect. I got a very nice, clean room in the back, and couldn't hear any highway noise. The lobby is clean and bright, with plenty of ice, snacks, and drinks. Recommended for anyone traveling cross-country.

This was a well maintained older property. An unusual configuration with 3 wings going outward from a big lobby lounge area. Had a decent breakfast and the location was great. I am an old hotel aficionado, so I enjoyed the stay more because of the character of the hotel.

First off, we had to flush the toilet on arrival to be able to use it. Yep. The toilet had been used. The maid did not clean the bathroom or surely she'd have noticed that! There were three lamps in the room, and all three had burnt out bulbs in them. There were only two outlets in the room, one...

We were on a budget. The clerk was so friendly and she really made it a pleasant stay by making sure our room was non-smoking and on the 3rd floor. Kinda funky-lookin but absolutely no complaints. 4stars because there is obvious wear&tear to the room but nothing major.

There were cockroaches in the bed, which had not been laundered. I assume this a violation even in Kansas. We left, having had to complete a form to apply for a refund, despite that we showed staff bugs in our bed. Stay in Lawrence, there's a highly rated motel there at a lower price. Look it up.

We actually left after checking in as the room was gross. Ashes on the floor of the bathroom as well as dirt. I was actually afraid to stay there! Drove the hour home rather than attempt to sleep in the bed!

I actually enjoyed staying here, but only because of how spooky it is. It's generally clean, and definitely quiet, but quiet as the grave is quiet. All of the carpet is unnerving and overly-busy in its design, and there's an overwhelming sense of evil that pervades the whole place. That said, it wasn't a horrible time.

Was in town to see soccer at Sporting Park. Combination of distance and price was right. Noise insulation wasn't great, but I was still able to sleep through it. Was disappointed to find the only two outlets in bedroom all taken up by the TV/cable and the fridge/microwave. Had to unplug things to charge anything. Of the two beds, one...

Dear Tom, Thank you for staying with us! Iappreciate your review and want to apologize to you for the issues mentioned. We are in process of rerouting the electrical outlets to provide more plugs for our guests. Our Housekeeping staff have been reprimanded for ignoring beds that are still untouched. Obviously the key between your sheets was not supposed to...
