Nicely lit parking. No elevator. Waffles or cold cereal selection for breakfast, but no sugar free syrup. Denny's within walking distance. Bathroom tiny but everything was in good condition and no odors. Great stay when traveling on a budget.

We were return guests because we had a good experience on a prior road trip. After 12 hours of driving from TX, the hot tub felt great and I loved that my kids could be active in the pool. We specifically expected this experience again. However, the reality was an absolutely toxic pool and hot tub that bordered on chemical burns to our eyes and skin. We opened an exterior door to ventilate the pool/spa area, but we only lasted a few minutes before going to the front desk to share our concerns. The gal working was nice enough, yet was unauthorized to offer any adjustments or service to recompense our negative experience. She said the manager was out of town, check back in the morning regarding my experience. We did so and the morning guy echoed the same response...he wasn’t authorized to make any adjustments or offer anything in compensation, the manager was out of town...but he added he was surprised the pool area was even open because they shock the pool and spa on Sundays, and that he’d pass my concerns along. Knowing this, I was even more dissatisfied with the unhealthy exposure to the pool chemicals. I specifically told both front desk employees I would be leaving a negative review if no one reached out to me. I have recommended this hotel to family traveling from MN to visit us in TX, because the Topeka area in a good halfway point. There are plenty of other hotels that will be receiving our business during our frequent road trips back and forth from now on.
