“Budget Beauty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2008

The Drury Inn has proven to be a great value. Clean and comfortable rooms, marble tiled bath, in-room reclining chair, and an above average breakfast buffet have made for a very comfortable stay. The front desk is very accomodating, cheerfully providing forgotten tolietries, and preparing fresh popped corn upon request. Great hotel for business or quick over night stays.

Stayed December 2008

Great motel. Very clean. Friendly staff. Good breakfast. WIFI worked well. Wasn't real crazy about the mattress. Little too soft.

I booked on hotwire for $39 a night listed as a 3 star. I would expect to pay over $100 a night here though. The hotel is on HWY 280 which is a great location for shopping, golf, food, etc.

The hotel staff was very nice but slow on the weekend because of a full house. The have free snacks and drinks in the lobby at night and a great free breakfast in the mornings. There is an indoor/outdoor connecting pool as well as a great hot tub inside.

The rooms were very comfy, plenty of space. Nice large flat screen tv and great internet access.

Only problem I had were the elevators which kept getting stuck coming up and down.

  • Liked — free food and drinks
  • Disliked — elevators sucked

This is a newly remodeled Drury Inn which means sparkling white grout in the bathroom, brand new recliners in the bedroom,comfy beds, fresh carpet, widescreen TVs, desk/chair, etc. The room was a little small with 2 beds but It was quiet and so clean and fresh. The windows even open if you want. Can you tell I brought my white gloves? The room passed my test! The bathrooms are very large with a great showerhead and lots of towels. Breakfast is special with hot Belgium waffles, a person even helps you at the buffet serving eggs, biscuits/gravy, anything you want. Free wine in the evening. Our TV wasn't working properly so within 45 minutes, we had a new TV delivered to our room. The clientele is very pleasant and helpful. You will certainly have a great stay at this hotel.

When we first walked in, it was beautiful. Staff was nice. Then we went to our room for the night. Everything was going great until my daughter and niece noticed the large cock roach on the wall. My husband killed it. Went down to get another room. They gave me a room with someone else in it. Then they gave us a room with only 1 bed in it... for 4 grown people. Then when we finally got into a room, my husband was getting ready to pull back the covers.... another cock roach was on the bed!!!!! OMG. Left instantly. If you stay... better check your ears in the a.m.

  • Liked — Room was very soundproof
  • Disliked — the roaches

I stayed at the Drury Inn with my family on a recent road trip. We selected the Drury because it was pet friendly. Check-in was quick and efficient. Room was clean, bed was quite comfortable and they had an above average number of tv channels. The Drury breakfast was pretty standard -- probably a step above what you would get at a Hampton Inn. Very close to nice shopping and any restaurant you could want. One one side of the hotel is The Summit and about a mile in the other direction you can find any fast-food joint you can think of as well as a Super Target. Indoor/outdoor pool.

  • Liked — Location - very close to great shopping and restaurants
  • Disliked — Had some cooling issues

Stayed here the weekend of September 7th-9th 2007 for a big softball tournament. Overall, the hotel was nice. Very clean, beds were quite small compared to some. The breakfast was good. Always love the Belgian Waffles, but eggs were the substitute brand. They had afternoon beverages which were free and each person in room got 3 drinks a piece. That was a plus, plus. Only downside was the fact that they had this security guard who we caught from our upstairs window, looking into cars. I don't know what he was looking for, but he had his flashlight looking into people's cars. I obviously wasn't the only one who saw this because I overheard someone else in the hotel mentioned this.
