“Will definitely stay here again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2013

My family and I came down to Kansas City for Rock Fest with a group of friends. We had a block of rooms and even though we got to the hotel before check in time the lady at the front desk was so kind enough to check us in. At the moment our room was not ready, however she right away got it ready for us in less than 10 minutes. Overall, our stay was amazingly GREAT. Hotel staff was extemeley nice and the rooms were very well clean and organized. Breakfast was yummy. I loved the fact they had a waffle maker.

This was one of the worst hotels I have EVER stayed in! We were given what felt like a converted broom closet and about the only good thing I can say is we slept well and the staff was nice. The sink had been broken and glued back together. The hair dryer showed electrical damage. There was no carpet, refrigerator or microwave. When walking in there were signs of neglect. I can guarantee I won't stay here again.

The hotel staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We had gotten into town early and they were kind enough to check us in as soon as our room was ready even though we arrived at least an hour before their official check-in time.

The room was clean and comfortable, though the hair dryer did not seem to work.

Breakfast had a waffle-maker which was always a plus, though beware the choices if you don't want a lot of carbs.

After reading the reviews I thought I would give this Econo Lodge a 2nd try. During our 1st stay we had the same bad experience as our 2nd visit. The elevator is long do for an inspection this hotel doesn't have the inspection letter informing guest it's safe to ride. When you're coming down the elevator feels like it's about to break due to all the shaking. We also were checked into a 'non-smoking' room with an ashtray in it. The room itself had extremely old and outdated furniture including the sofa, bed, night stands, dressers, and the list goes on. We also had a various visitors in our hotel room during the weekend. The rooms are above average cleaning wise. We didn't have maid service Saturday morning/afternoon, we had to inform the front desk our room was not cleaned.

Final Thoughts:
Just stay at the LQ next door. Don't bother with this property.

I stayed here for a few nights over the weekend. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the rooms are very clean. Beds are comfortable, and the LCD TV is a nice thing to have.

The only negatives, the room a bit cramped and there is almost no sound insulation at all. I could hear people talking in the halls when I was trying to sleep.

This hotel is great. Staff are caring and helpful. I love how close it is to the casino. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, quiet area and spacious rooms. My room had a flat screen tv which is awesome....some hotels in this price range still have the box tvs. Prices are amazing as well.

The ladies at the front desk were amazing. They printed out directions for us to several different attractions. Happily answered all our questions and sent us to several different places we hadn't even considered. The room was very nice and came at a great price. The breakfast was hot and even though we arrived 5 minutes before it closed, everything was fully stocked.
Happily recommend this hotel for everyone. The drive into downtown is only about 5 minutes
and you don't have to pay downtown high prices. A real gem!!
