We booked a room for a midway stop between Colorado and Missouri. The hotel was clean and the service was good. No complaints other than I would like to see an upgrade and the bedspread.

Booked my room back in September and did not find out about pool until after check-in. Would stay there again if...

Checked in at 4:30PM and was given a key to a room that was being cleaned. It appeared they just started cleaning. Went to the front desk to get a different room and another guest came up to tell the clerk he was given a room that was occupied. The property was in need of serious repair everywhere.

We didn't eat or drink in our room and when my boys and I went to get some sleep, my son noticed ants....all over the nightstand and my bed. We went to the front desk and were told to wait while she called management. After a while she came and helped us move to a different room with no ants....

The lady at the front desk was very rude and sloppy looking with uncombed hair. Seemed to always be in the back sleeping. Hard to get her to front desk. Electrical outlet had been burnt. Big chip in sink. First room assigned had not been cleaned. No bath mat. Dingy and depressing place. Their excuse was renovation but did not...

“This hotel is on a major highway and the rooms in the front are noisy”
  • The beds looked like they had been slept in before I checked into the room
  • This is how the threadbare pillows looked with all their wrinkles when I walked in the room.
