Nice hotel for a small town, but was not impressed with the housekeeping or the "hot breakfast" advertised. Stayed in October 2020 for family visit. Was going to stay at Hyatt in Topeka, but family wanted me to stay closer to their home in Havensville, so changed plans to stay in Seneca as this hotel was recommended by family as nice,safe alternative to the "big city". (Side note, as I live in a metropolitan city, Topeka does not qualify as "big city" for me.) Paid a little more for this hotel in Seneca than Hyatt in Topeka with less amenities and not nearly as nice a room or the level of housekeeping one would expect from any hotel. Stay was for 5 nights; was not notified upon check-in that bed sheets would only be changed once during my stay and the room and bathroom and sink would not be cleaned until end of stay. On second evening of stay, upon returning to hotel in late evening and discovering sheets were not changed and bathroom and sink had not been washed, reported it to front desk. Was informed that when staying for over 3 nights, sheets changed on day 3 and bathroom and sink cleaned. Housekeeping must not have been informed as there was toothpaste and soap residue in the sink that was never cleaned during my entire stay. Gave up on reporting the housekeeping issues to front desk. As for the "hot breakfast", it was a microwave omelet similar to a Jimmy Dean or Eggslands brand, and the overall "hot" menu left much to be desired. There was a full size fridge w/freezer and microwave in room, so you can stop in one of the bigger cities/towns before arriving to bring your own food. Understand that this is a small town and most guests probably do not stay for long periods, but website should be clearer so that guests know exactly what to expect. Honestly, feel like the hotel is a little overpriced for what you get. However, I would stay again, now that I know what to expect and will bring my own cleaning wipes to clean the bathroom and sink daily myself.

Clean and comfortable with secure wifi. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast was the usual hotel expectation. A pleasant and friendly priced hotel. Next time we visit Seneca, this is where we will stay.

A college friend of mine was getting married in a nearby town and hotel options are slim pickings out in this part of Kansas. The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because the rooms are outdated and the beds are pretty firm. The continental breakfast was great! If I had to spend the night in this area of Kansas again, then I would without hesitation stay here.
