Our room is clean. Free breakfast is only biscuits and gravy with a side of eggs( no drinks included). Close to KC public buses. Staff was friendly yet unable to answer questions about local attractions. Lots of Pokemon were caught by my kids.

It was alright for one night. When I return to Kansas City, I more than likely will not stay at this hotel. Our family has four rooms and they were spread out. It would have been nice to be closer. The rooms were less than stellar. The AC wasn't working well and the bathrooms were dark and grungy.

I travel a lot for work and I stay at this hotel about 4 times a year. I always have the best experience. The staff here are of the best I've ever seen. The lobby has been completely renovated. New paint, carpet, furniture and much more fine details. Our room 133 was wonderful. Very clean and had free cable. We... More

I have stayed at many budget friendly hotels while on the road but this one is totally different. Everything from check-in, to our room, the food and great staff really made our stay outstanding. The staff here are super nice and helpful. The lobby was beautiful! Our room was clean and newly remodeled. Free wifi and HBO. My husband and... More

I just checked into room 126. This room had not been cleaned from the previous guest. Dirty towels and the bed in the same condition as the previous guest left it. I'm writing this review before I call the front desk for the 3rd time without gaining adequate response to send someone down to provide clean towels and sheets. Is... More

I am a smoker and I could not stand the smell. The bathroom floors had dirt and ashes everywhere. We were afraid to sit much less sleep on the beds. After a wonderful night at Knuckleheads, we picked our things back up and left at 1:00 a.m.!

The nonsmoking rooms are right next to the smoking rooms so it smells like smoke. Not just cigarette smoke but Marijuana. My belongings smelled when I got home. There was a homeless man sitting in the doorway towards the back of the hotel, it was a little scary. The receptionist was very nice and did a great job.
