We really didn't want to spend much money on our stay in Emporia, because we were truly just passing through after visiting the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve. This place had reviews from other websites that were positive, so we thought we would give it a shot.

It was definitely just what we paid for - $52 after taxes. It's old and there was no pool, no breakfast, no fancy soaps waiting for us. But it was clean and in good repair. No random hair or broken tubs, which are my pet peeves. You drive right up to your room, which is great on roadtrip when you want to unload/load your cooler. The ice machine worked well. There was an old CRT tv and phone in the room. We asked for more towels and got them right away. The manager and family were pleasant and kind.

The a/c worked very, very slowly. I would call ahead about an hour before you got there to ask them to turn the air on in your room. It took quite awhile for it to cool down our room and we went to sleep quite warm. If we could have opened a window and let in some fresh air, that would have been great, but it was over 100 degrees outside. That was the only negative. And the carpet seems oldish, like the kind you don't want to walk around barefoot on.

But we only paid $52, so we were pleased with what we got.

Also, there is nowhere to eat on this exit, so make sure that you get something at one of the other Emporia exits.

Be sure to visit the National Park nearby - Flint Hills Tallgrass Prairie Preserve. They are kind, it's interesting, and they have a great Junior Ranger program for kids.
