The facility was completely inadequate . The plumbing was not good at all , hot water doesn’t come running until after 15-20 minutes, the toilet is very low and unstable, heating and cooling not working effectively.

Good stay@ Knights Inn

Just needed a room to sleep in for a few hours after a long day at a festival. We were looking for clean, quiet and close to our location. After searching price, reviews, and location, booked with Knights Inn in Ottawa Kansas. When I walked into the lobby to check in, it smelled like several days old urine. I was dreading what I had gotten my husband and I into by going cheaper and older, and what the room would be like. Clerk at desk was very friendly and helpful. She had us checked in within a few minutes. To say the least, we were very surprised with our room. Very clean. The room did not have an older room smell. Smelled great. Another plus - after a long day of being on our feet, the shower was nice and hot and had a comfortable bed. The next morning when checking out, was surprised to find the lobby did not have the strong urine smell. Have no idea what that was all about. We had a good stay. Will we stay with Kights Inn in Ottawa again? Yes definitely. Making reservations to stay again next year.

Needs help

You get what you pay for with this hotel. My complaints ran rather long with this stay including bad smell, cleanliness issues especially with the bathroom, noisy floors on the second floor, and a rather rude front desk attendant. My complaints also went unnoticed. There are many better choices than here.

Fun Outdoor Pool

We had a nice stay at this low cost hotel. Pluses were the price, the outdoor pool and the fridge and microwave in the room. Negatives were the toilet that ran for 45 minutes after every flush and the tub with a very slow drain. Also the bathroom wasn't very clean.
