This is an excellent hotel that has been open for less than 2 years at the time of this posting (June 2012). The lobby, hallways, and rooms still have that nice, but not over powering "new smell". The breakfast is a full hot breakfast and was very good. Our selections included scrambled eggs with diced ham, biscuits and gravy, make your own waffles, yogurt, cereal, toast/muffins/donuts, oatmeal, fruit, coffee, juices, milk, There is also a wide selection of dvd movies to choose from in the lobby. The bed was extremely comfortable with a memory foam-type mattress. The rooms are very nicely appointed in modern theme, have thermostat controlled cooling & heating, and a small refrigerator, The hotel is located in a quiet section of town and away from the congested areas. This is actually a bonus because you can choose to use alternate back routes to KSU, shopping, and restaurants and avoid sitting through the heavy traffic areas of Tuttle Creek, Bluemont, & Poyntz. The big draw for us was that the hotel is pet friendly with a very reasonable fee. If you are looking for an above average hotel with reasonable rates where you can bring your pet, this is the place. I read an earlier review of this hotel that gave a lower rating due to a 7-day cancellation policy. The hotel mentions that for special events, i.e., KSU graduations, Country Stampede and some other events, there IS a 7-day cancellation policy. For reservations not falling in that category, the cancellation notice is 24-hour, which I feel is acceptable. Note - ALL the hotels (and I believe B&B's too) in Manhattan, KS have a 2-night minimum for home football games, so you'll need to reserve early and plan accordingly for those events. Our son is starting his last year at KSU this fall. Wish we would have found this hotel when it first opened, but we will definitely be back for several more visits. I highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Manhattan, KS.
