If you have another option, then stay somewhere else! Even though they offer smoking and nonsmoking rooms, all the rooms smell like smoke! Our sheets all were unclean and had cigarette burns in them! We slept on the floor! Also, our room was not properly cleaned before we checked in. The bathroom is horribly small, and we could see old...

Sadly this isn't the worst hotel in the area, and that says a lot. Our stay at this hotel is one of horror stories, but hey at least our beds were clean. When we got there we noticed a white SUV driving around the hotel, turns out, after it being there for more than a couple hours we saw it...

Arrived at night with no clear signing through dark streets to get there. Quick check in. The room was clean and looks newly renovated (not professionally). Large tv with basic cable. Lots of places to plug in. Breakfast was nothing to speak of, no really nothing. Worth the money spent

The first thing I noticed when I walked in was that it looked as though someone had put stickers on the headboard and then pulled them off. This left a white film in those areas. There were spots like that on the night stands too. The comforter was little more than a colored sheet. The pillows were tiny- and only...

Stayed there for 2 nights last week and couldn't wait to leave, although there were a few positives. Beds: 2 queens that were quite comfortable, except for the fact that one had a plastic lined mattress pad which made noise and felt clammy. Microwave and fridge: worked well. Room odor: we asked for a non-smoking room, but this one smelled...

I had a great stay at this motel during a cross-country trip for business. The rooms were cozy, clean, comfortable and just what you want to relax into when you need a break. The management is so friendly and courteous checking in is a breeze and they really take care of you. I'd never stay anywhere else passing through Independence/Kansas...

Really wish i Had taken pictures of the room. Newly redecorated with burgandy and browns. Solid mattress, clean. TV worked which is more than i can say for many higher end hotels. Ask for and got bottom floor just steps from my car. Was greeted at front desk by manager, he smiled and had me going in minutes. When I...

A old motel outside entry only that was well worn. The room was ok and clean. The desk clerk's were both nice although not aware of the short cut to Kaufman Stadium. U don't need to get on the Interstate to get to the park for this location. The breakfast was below average with some toast, a waffle machine, oj...
