Third stay, have always liked this motel; one of the nicer LaQuintas I've been in. New-feeling, clean, nice grounds, decent location (tho don't expect anything from the big mall next door, which is basically dead). Front desk guy was efficient but in no way welcoming, tho the other helpers seem quite friendly. Breakfast is typical of mid-priced chains: almost inedible for people who try to eat relatively healthy whole-foods. The "BUT" in my title is there because ~ tho my room was clean & fresh ~ the hallway & elevator carpets were filthy. Which is a mystery in this nice place... & unacceptable. Still, I'll return again, hoping it's not a downward trend.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Easy to find off I-35, we're 23 miles from Union Station in the heart of Kansas City. We regularly appear on the CNN/Money magazine list as one of the "100 Best Cities to Live". With neighboring Overland Park, this is a fast-growing area with a real sense of community. If you're here on vacation, how about a horse-driven stagecoach ride? Whatever your reason, we're glad you're here and hope you'll make this your comfortable and convenient base. Pets are welcome, too. Kansas City is 22 miles north. Here you might want to start your sightseeing in "The City of Fountains" with the American Jazz Museum, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, or National World War I Museum. Across the street from the latter, have a look at restored Union Station with its 95-foot ceiling and 3,500-pound chandeliers. It's a vibrant destination with changing exhibitions. Alternatively, scout out your favorites among the plentiful water features around town. Some visitors come here for the 200+ fountains alone with graceful statuary and synchronized music. Don't miss Country Club Plaza, an upscale shopping district four miles south of downtown, with Spanish-influenced design. Just one mile farther, and you're in Kansas. ... more less
