Checking reviews and searching for place for the night while on the road. Found this in Kansas City with good reviews. It was a delight - more than you would expect. Granted, it is an old hotel, but somebody is trying hard to use that charm to their advantage. La'Faye at the front desk is also a delight compared to...

We checked in after a long day of travel and a wedding to find they had no record of our reservation. I had a verification code, but that didn't help (they had had a computer glitch on their website a couple of weeks ago, but it doesn't seem to be fixed yet). The night staff, Will and Mayo, were very...

My experience here was average. The only things I enjoyed about the hotel was the swimming pool, free breakfast, gift basket and the staff. The staff were on point. I had many issues with my room, but huy and tommie had solved every one of them and helped me as much as possible. Overall, the trip was great for the...

When we first arrived William and Miowa were funny and professional and got us in right away. I was shocked at the complementary basket that they gave us as I've never received them before. The workers just made the first impression of the hotel extremely amazing! I will definitely be coming back to stay again!

I really liked the room; everything looks like the pictures. Nice clean bathroom, and cute pool. Breakfast was really good, and there was hot water, unlike some reviews said, but the knobs aren't installed properly. Also, the basket was really nice. Overall great stay near KC!

This hotel needs a little TLC but it's got a lot of potential to be a Great Hotel. The staff was very kind and even gave me a goody basket upon check in. The room was clean and new carpet had actually been installed just days prior to my arrival. The room (single King) was very spacious. The bed has...
