Actually seemed reluctant but the front desk was nice and helpful. It's a very nice warm and cozy bed, really worth the low cost. The king size bed was warm and the TV is a nice size enough for you to enjoy a. Good night in.

I booked a stay at this place for Oct. 10th for 3 rooms, but when I got there they told me I had only 1 room. After much confusion, they told me I had 1 room for 3 different nights. I had 9 people with me to go to the Chiefs game the next day. Why would I book 1... More

My best friend and I were in town from Austin, Texas for the much-anticipated One Direction concert. We were greeted by friendly staff and accommodated to check in early. I'll definitely give them an extra point for that! We were also greeted by major construction in and around the hotel property. Fine, improvements are always a plus. Just didn't expect... More

It was late, I left Lansing Kansas to find a room. 8 motels later American Best Value Inn was the only motel I could locate with an available room. It is located down the street from 3 other motels. Front desk after hours has a slide draw to hand over items. Difficult to hear desk clerk with drawer closed. Room... More

Bad area simply because the motels have degenerate occupants living in them. High crime / drug area. Room smelled like body odor, trash wasn't even emptied, poor lighting, and the cops actually raided one of the rooms. Breakfast was a joke.

This has to be the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. A lot of poor choices were clearly made in room 116. We couldn't check in for an hour because they had to clean this room, and I cannot imagine what it would have looked like had it not been "cleaned". There was nothing clean in this room but... More

I stayed at the Drury Hotel in Kansas and the manager Curt Cerise was racially biased. I am white and covered in tattoos. I have many friends who are black. He was a snob and acted like he was better than us. This is NOT acceptable!!!

Well the room smelled musty and like wet dirty socks I was approached by a hooker in the parking lot Cleanliness is not their strong suit. I think from now on I'll keep driving It just wasn't a great stay or sleep. I would recommend only staying here if you must.
