Hotel was dirty and needs remodeling. It was the only hotel we could find with a vacancy last night and now we know why. We went to the room they gave us and the room had not even been cleaned and the beds were unmade. Cannot recommend this hotel. The staff were friendly. They seemed to also have very slow... More

3 rooms, 3 times bed bugs under the mattress. 3 strikes even I am out. Sleep in the car first. After being told the little red bugs are not bedbugs and seeing an entire handful between the mattress and box, I am sure they are.

I arrived in Emporia and found the Knights Inn, what a great location! When I arrived, I was welcomed by a very nice young man who later I found was a student at the local university. He was very helpful in finding me a great room near my car and suggesting an outstanding BBQ restaurant downtown. The next day, when... More

Even as a college student, I will always be willing to pay a bit extra to stay at a more decent hotel. As you drive into the hotel, their sign says, "Cool down in our poo". The 'L' is just missing, but this is an accurate description of the hotel. When you first walk inside, it doesn't look half bad,... More

If I could give this hotel 0 starts, I would. I came here for a student conference and it was absolutely disgusting. The hotel looks abandoned and smells musty.

This Hotel is in dire need of some upgrades. Hopefully the new Knights Inn owners will be doing a major renovation. The Conference area and pool area weren't too bad other than the A/C seemed non-existent. The rooms were shy pillows on the bed and towels seemed rationed. The cleaning crew changed the towels and did nothing else, no new... More
