After calling 30+ other hotels that were all booked I reluctantly stayed here. Upon walking into the room it was musty and wet. Floors were nasty. Comforters were riddled with holes and filth. Pillow had mold on it. TV was tiny. Air hardly worked. No shampoo in the room. Lobby smelled like curry and throw up. Won't stay again!

Perfect stay. simple check in and we stayed 4 days and it was very uneventful just the way a hotel should be. I would definitely recommend it if you are traveling to Kansas City and you would like easy access to the interstate.

They were smoking pot!! Once locked in our room, it didn't get better! Room was dirty, you could still smell pot, the lampshades were broke, the...

This motel is Ok. The first thing i noticed was the terrible musty smell then i saw a bottle opener attached to the sink. Hmmm. It looks like it was a nice motel in the 80s but they need to update things. We didn't have a fitted sheet on our beds but they were comfy. The water pressure on the...

This hotel is absolutely disgusting. Room was very dirty, the sink faucet was so rusted we used bottled water to brush our teeth, the bathroom light didn't work so had to take a shower in the dark, which I hesitately did. The description on the Internet said microwave and fridge in every room, LIE. Small 20 inch tv. As we...

We would have moved you immediately. It sounds like the room you were given was a mistake and had been pulled for service but yet was...
