“Scuzzy clerks”
Reviewed 4 October 2008

I booked this motel by mistake. I wanted the next Super 8, closer to the KCI airport. The 'feel' of the place is not for family or women traveling alone.

Frankly, as a solo female traveler, I'm put off by front desk people who can't be bothered to iron their shirts, greet a guest properly, or are talking on cell phones instead of attending their station. Check-in was sluggish, and the unsure clerk muttered to himself the entire time. Low-slung baggie pants and a desk cluttered with no less than 6 drink cups, is not professional.
Perhaps the owner, Mr P Patel, needs to select/train his people better, as this young clerk nearly had me turing on my heels to leave.

I would not stay here again, as the clientele is on the seedier side; wandering around without shirts or shoes --driving beat up vehicles-- and "management" seemed incapable of handling any problems or clashes that might arise.

In the room, the plumbing is a problem. Toilet didn't flush well, the stopper 'works' fell off, so one couldn't drain the sink, and the water pressure was inadequate. Bed is hard; pillows old and flat. Linens were clean, but thin. I had to clip the drapes shut, as they gapped.

So, I have to give this place a big "NO", and advise that unless you're down to your last $64, keep going.

This is a family ran property as i could tell. The people were very helpful. The rates were decent. This Super * is kept up and very clean. The in door pool was heated and clean. There was guest laundry facilities on sight. There is everything you need within 1 mile most in walking distance. Lots of great resturants. There is a great mexican resturant across the street and an even better ond down the road close to the grocery store. There was a CVS and many other stores near by. We were there for a boxing event. The airport was very easy to get to. The events were held at the KCI Expo Center. Only about 4 miles away. Will return next year to the same hotel.

  • Liked — The staff was very helpful and nice, everything was very clean.
  • Disliked — could use more comfy beds and pillows
