The toilet wouldn't flush. The room was still dirty. One towel and one dirty washcloth for 2 people. Wasn't at all clean.

Hello, Thank you for sending us some feedback so we can learn from our mistakes and make them right. Our front desk always has extra towels available. We will work harder to make sure there is a sufficient number of towels in the room and they are clean. Safe travels.

It was in a convenient location and was budget friendly, but you get what you pay for and there's a LOT of stuff that goes on in and around the property that makes you not wanna be there or be super anxious about your safety.

Do not stay here

We booked this hotel for a sports team because all other hotels were sold out. At first we thought it would be ok. The staff member showed me a sample room before the team arrived. It was modest but clean so I figured they would be ok. When the team arrived after hours of driving there was blood in the bed. It had soaked through the sheets and mattress. The hotel staff member told us that housekeeping was not available until the morning and there was nothing she could do. When we asked for a refund we were originally told no. Eventually we were refunded our money. It was a horrible experience.

Just okay.

Pros: Nice tv, water pressure was great, good location.
Cons: Smell of room, and floors/stairs in lobby need cleaned
Location: Basehor Field of Dreams!
Lobby floors were dirty, room had a funny smell. I will not stay at this hotel, for the cost we could stay at a classier hotel, and breakfast didn't start tell 8 am. Too late for softball players!

Better than people think it is.

We came in late at night on a Saturday & i was happy to see a security guard come directly to the front desk. I am willing to bet that this is an old Holiday Inn & one of the better ones. The decor may be a little tacky & as most hotels, could use some updating, but it is clean & comfortable.
