“Decent hotel with nice perks”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

Drury Inn was a fairly average hotel, but what they lacked in luxury, they made up for with free breakfast, popcorn, and happy-hour drinks. The gym was a treadmill in a small low-lit room. The view from my room was of Denny's. A major complaint for me was that the noise level was too high. Apparently there was a kid's soccer team staying in rooms all around mine, and the noise began early each morning. Very friendly staff. Overall it was ok.

After reading the previous reviews we decided to book our stay at the Drury Inn. Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay including the breakfast, afternoon popcorn and nightly cocktails/snacks. Everything was more than we expected but we were truly impressed by the staff at the Drury. They helped us with any questions we had and went as far as to call us before our trip to clarify a question they had about our room request. While the hotel appears older and the bathroom is on the small side the customer service and added amenities more than made up for these items.

I am on the road a lot, and often stay at Drury properties if available. The staff at this chain seem very-well trained and almost overly attentive. The Drury hot breakfast and 5:30 kick-back are very well-done and well appreciated, especially before / after a lo-o-o-o-ong day at work.

This particular hotel seemed well centered for getting to entertainment / food establishments in the south Kansas City area using the nearby interstates. The neighborhood felt safe, and I wasn't worried about parking my car in the lot.

The staff were very friendly and responsive to my needs. The rooms (on this last trip I stayed two weeks in total, with a week out of the area in between) were well-serviced, maintained and quite clean, if just a bit worn. Flat screen TVs, coffee-maker, hair-dryer, micro, refrigerator, etc room amenities are always appreciated. Beds (especially the over-abundance of pillows to choose from) are very, very comfortable.

Greatest feature: quiet rooms - I was halfway through my second week here before I even realized there were trains periodically passing by along side the near-by interstate.

Room Tip: Two elevators make any floor quickly and easily accessible; east side of building has less parking.

I stay here regularly on business. It's a great location in the center of the KC metro area. As at every Drury I have stayed in, the staff is overly friendly, provides a nice breakfast and good food and drinks at dinner time (unless you are on a diet). The rooms are clean, beds comfortable, has large tv's. The neighborhood is safe with lots of restaurants close by. If highway and train noise bother you (I actually like it), request a room on the other side as you practically cannot hear it there. If you're not familiar with Drury's, they rival Holiday Inn Express and Hampton Inn for accomodation with the added evening drinks and dinner offered.

We chose this hotel based on Trip Advisor recommendations and the fact that we needed to be near Shawnee Mission Medical Center. Frankly, we almost did NOT stay here because of the pictures, which showed a dated decor, making me concerned about the quality of the facility. However, the excellent reviews swayed us, and we were pleasantly surprised. First, the positives as noted by other reviewers: quiet, clean, very comfortable rooms, pleasant staff, and free food top the list. I did not expect the king deluxe room to feature a sofa plus a recliner and club chair in addition to the desk and king bed. The room had an attractive brick wall. I heard NO noise from the hallway and only a couple instances of outside noise. Also, "green" guests will appreciate the dispensers in the bathroom with shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel instead of travel-sized containers. The only negative was a dated decor. If you must have up-to-date furnishings to feel comfortable, then you will not be happy. If you would choose comfort over beauty (and if you like free appetizers/light dinner, drinks, and breakfast), then you will most likely be pleased. We liked the hotel enough that we joined the travel reward program and will look for other Drury Inns in the future.

Okay...so the hotel is a little old. Trust me, you won't care. Great service, great rate, good food, and, best of all, FREE BEER -- Arrive during happy hour and free drinks are included with the room. Really, for the price you will not find better. We will travel out of our way to stay at Drury Inns in the future.

Room Tip: Be nice to Brandon, one of the managers

After staying in 5 other hotels in the last two weeks, this topped them all. The most outstanding thing was the breakfast. Great quality of food included with the room. The price was even better than most of the other hotels. I would love for Drury to bring this quality/price to Northern California where I live.

Room Tip: Third floor room facing the back of the hotel was fine. Make sure you draw the curtains before slee...
