As we were traveling across the country on our way to visit our daughter in Indiana we got caught in a fairly severe blizzard about 48 miles west of Salina Ks. Although it wasn't in our plans to stay in Salina, mother nature convinced us that it would be wise for us to do so. We were able to make a reservation and pulled into the Hotel around 6:30 p.m. We were able to get checked in and into our rooms quick enough. The room was nice, and beds were comfortable. We were thankful to be off the highway and out of the weather. However, there really wasn't anything particularly special about the hotel, the service or its continental breakfast to warrant a rate that was essentially $100.00. The indoor play/arcade area should have been closed down a bit earlier. My wife and I found it difficult to get to sleep because of the noise well after 9 pm.
The next morning I was quite disappointed in the hotel staff's lack of concern for its guests. The sidewalks and parking lot were not cleared of snow except for a few square feet in front of two entrances. I and many other able bodied guests were helping each other get our vehicles cleared and pathways shoveled so other less abled folks could get on there way. This severe lack of assistance from the Quality Inn staff caused me to be delayed by two hours. I suspect the hotel probably enjoyed one of its highest occupancy rates that evening - I believe it should have shown some appreciation by requiring its staff to being more proactive and providing better assistance instead of hiding inside and staying warm and comfortable.
