I picked this hotel because it was the first one I saw when I drove into town after getting lost on the back roads for a couple hours. It seemed cheap enough, about the same as a Motel 8, so I went ahead.
The lampshades, box-spring and wallpaper were all torn; there were stains on the walls and chairs; there was actually a car air freshener on one of the lampshades; and the paint was poorly applied. The sheets were pristine (if a bit rough), but the towels were a suspicious gray color.
You can hear the train clearly through the walls, but the tracks run along 4th Ave, so you can probably hear it from all of the hotels along here. It is in an excellent location, easy enough to find from any way you enter Hutchinson. I found the Cosmosphere easily from there, and it looked to also be quite near the Salt Mine Museum.
My attempts to negotiate the price were firmly rebuffed. Overall, it was clean where I needed it to be, and well located, but the maintenance was poor and the service and price were not great.
