We lost the fuel pump in our Suburban while on a road trip, and were pointed to this hotel by the very helpful folks at the Chevy dealership a mile or so down the road in Raytown that we hooked up with to get that fixed. The staff could not have been nicer, offering to do things like print out a list of local museums for us to visit while we waited for our repairs to be complete, and their genuine hospitality really helped lower our stress about the situation!
We've stayed in other Holiday Inn Express locations with generally good results, but this place seemed above average. I gather the property had only been open for about 3 weeks, and everything had that "brand new" feel to it. The beds in our 2-queen room were really comfortable, the shower was one of the better ones experienced on this road trip, lots of channels on the in-room wide-screen TV, and the free breakfast included eggs, bacon, biscuits, and assorted pastry in addition to the usual assortment of cereal, fruit, breads, yogurt, and so forth.
My only real complaints would be that the in-room air conditioner was louder than some we've experienced (but pretty typical for places like this), and that the wireless Internet (which worked fine for web browsing) had some strange firewall rules that caused me to use my AT&T 3g service to get to my corporate email account instead of fighting with it.
