This was a great place to stay for just an overnight visit to KC. We were in town for a football game and were able to get a taxi from the hotel to the gate for $13. It is a little ways from actual KC but not far from the stadiums. Had a great breakfast and very attentive staff. We...

Given the strong reviews, I was expecting better, so was disappointed, but overall felt that it was an OK experience. The staff were all uniformly very nice and accommodating, and the breakfast had a decent variety and was good (cereals, instant oatmeal, eggs (scrambled and hard boiled), sausage, variety of breads + muffins/biscuits (with gravy available), pancake maker, yogurt, juices....

The hotel itself is pretty nice, but after driving all day I wanted to walk a bit. The Hotel is on busy street with no crosswalks or signal nearby so it was challenging to reach the restaurants and stores that were just across the street.

This motel was just average although priced higher than that. I would assume for the location? We reserved a non-smoking room but ended up in a room that smelled strongly of smoke. They still called it non-smoking. We stuck it out because they had no other rooms and it was late. I typically stay over 200 nights a year in...

Our experience with this motel was very good. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms could stand to be updated a little bit but were very clean. I would recommend this motel if your looking for a reasonable place to stay.

Great location, just off the highway.. Lots of things in and around the motel which made it convenient, Staff was extremely helpful and courteous. Room was very clean and everything worked perfectly. Parking right in front of your room is so very helpful.

Our experience was overall good. We were there for 2 nights and we had a king room. The room was clean. The breakfast was ok (hot) and if you are in a rush but are used to eating in the morning before you go out and about then this place is worth it. Its a motel and not a hotel....

This motel was in a great location near the interstate highway. The staff was great and the bed was comfortable. The a/c system did not work well during the night as the temperature was too hot and then too cold for comfort. At check out the clerk reduced my bill to compensate.
