Seems like a decent part of town, until you walk in. Greeted by a wall of monitors broadcasting the security cameras. Comforter in our room was ripped, had holes and smelled. There was a big sign on our room door that reads "Deadbolt for your safety". The faucet dripped all night, you can hear everything going on in the hallways... More

The towels had hair on them, the bed had hair in it, there was hair in the sink, and hair even on the toilet. The floor in the bathroom floor was sticky along with every other tile floor in the place including the old beer smelling elevator. Take it from me that you should never stay at this hotel or...

After reading the horrible reviews on Tripadvisor we honestly were a bit scared to go to this hotel, but it turned out just fine. The location of the hotel is perfect, close to for example the Westport area with a lot of restaurants and bars. The area felt safe, also when walking around at night. The hotel is very simple...

There was a game the night we stayed and this was our only choice since everything in the area was sold out. First, the glass table in the entry was broken on the corner, but we did not notice until my daughter brushed against it when bending over to pick up her bag and received a cut through her jeans...

This hotel leaves something to be desired. The room had holes and scratches in the walls and in need of a paint job. The curtains were not hanging by all of the hooks. Only one available power outlet unless you unplug something else. There was an iron but no ironing board. The shower was like being inside of a shoe... More

This was quite possibly the worst place I've ever stayed. The smell of mold was unbearable, and the room was filthy. We were supposed to stay there for 3 nights and after the first night we had to find another hotel. When it rained water was pouring in through the window in the bathroom. And there were very questionable hairs... More

The place is old but not dirty. The elevator permit was out of date but oh well. Used the place because it was close to Arrowhead stadium. Did not eat the breakfast, was closed by the time I got up so I don't know if it is good.

We had looked around at prices of various hotels around the area because we had to come to Children's Mercy for some medic testing on one of our kids. We saw the pics online and found the pics of the hotel to be adequate. We were able to call about a room. When we called we found they offered a... More

Wouldn't even give this place 1 star. The location is good, but it's so so so outdated. Shabby all around. The bed was so ancient and sagging, you could see big indentations. Sheets felt filmy. The TV still had its plastic protective cover on it. The elevator was terrible, carpets worn & zero amenities. The pool isn't even worth mentioning.... More

My husband and I needed a weekend getaway. This hotel was cheap and had a decent location. Those were the positives. We got to our room and it stunk. Like so bad that we went and bought an air freshener from the Walgreens down the street. Sprayed the heck out of the room and blasted the air conditioner and it... More
