2 out of 5
The staff was very friendly, and the room was relatively clean. However, the entire property seemed very run-down and in need of much updating. Our refrigerator did not work and the climate control seemed in need of repair. Locks and doors did not function properly. There were stains on the furniture. For what we paid, we did not get our money's worth.

Chose hotel for it's proximity to Kansas Speedway

Pros: The staff was wonderful
Location: We chose the hotel as it was near the speedway without being in KC. Easy in and out to the turnpikeA
We had a lovely time. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful...even at 1 am! The other guests where horribly noisy but there wasn't anything that can be done to make others respectful of other guests

I recommend this hotel.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
We stayed for 3 nights in a room with a King sized bed. We found the room spacious and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable and had a large HD TV with Direct TV including many movie channels.
