"There was only one USB port in the hotel room, and it didn't work. I was disappointed that breakfast was just packaged honey buns.2022-01-17"
"The room was clean and comfortable, with a microwave, fridge, coffee pot, free WiFi, and cable TV. We had everything we wanted for a reasonable price. The hotel clerk was super nice and helpful with directions. We couldn't have asked for better customer service.2018-08-07"
"Expect a nice, basic hotel. The room was clean and good-sized, and the pool was well-kept.2018-06-05"
"The carpet in the hallway was stained, and the carpet in our room was damp. I waited 25 minutes to check in. The eating area was too small. Consider other hotels.2018-05-14"
"The hotel room was nice and clean, but there was no easy chair. Check-in was difficult.2023-01-26"
"The hotel charged a $100 deposit. The building was cheaply constructed; I heard banging doors and heavy footsteps late into the night and early in the morning. My room was just a room and a bathroom, not a suite. The bed blanket was scratchy. 2022-03-13"
"OK hotel other than the noisy people above my room. Overall, my stay was fine.2015-04-21"
"This was by far the noisiest motel I've ever stayed in. The noise from I-35 was so loud that it sounded like we had a window open. We could also hear people upstairs walking around, flushing the toilet, and moving furniture around, as well as the neighbor's TV all night. We also heard trains and train horns. The mattress was in poor condition, and the TV was awkward to watch from bed. The desk chair looked like it had been retrieved from a dumpster. No coffee in the room; I had to ask for one at the front desk. Don't stay here.2023-02-27"
"The room badly needed an upgrade. It had a chemical smell, and the carpet and furnishings were old and worn. The TV leaned to one side. Train noise ruined any chance of sleeping through the night. The motel clerk was professional. Don't stay here.2015-10-30"
"OK motel and staff. The room needed better soundproofing; I could hear conversations in the next room, and the traffic noise was horrible. Stay somewhere else.2015-10-27"
"The deadbolt on the door didn't work; maintenance tried to fix it, but it was still hard to use. The bathroom was so small that my walker wouldn't fit through the door; I had to have help every time I needed to use the bathroom. The hotel lobby was filled with a group that was drinking and swearing. Don't stay here.2021-11-22"
"Not terrible, but there are better options. The bathtub and sink didn't drain properly, so I was standing in about 8 inches of water in the shower. The floor near the elevator wasn't level because the tiling wasn't completed. The front desk clerk was curt when I asked about breakfast; only coffee and muffins were provided. Find another hotel.2020-10-20"
"Our key cards didn't work, and we got locked out. The hotel room wasn't clean at all, and there weren't enough towels for 2 people. The breakfast area was closed for remodeling, and there was no breakfast available. We could hear loud remodeling work when we were in our room. Stay somewhere else.2020-04-21"

"Easy to find. Excellent hotel in a nice area. Some kids made noise in the hallway late at night, but when I told the checkout clerk, she comped my room. Good restaurants within walking distance, and there were 2 gas stations nearby.2016-05-09"
"The hotel was convenient to KU. I had to leave at 5 AM, so I wasn't able to have breakfast.2021-05-20"
"The hotel was convenient to the hospital. The room was nice and clean, but I heard noise from other rooms; I could hear the shower and what people were saying. Limited breakfast because of Covid.2021-03-14"
"Close to KU Hospital. The hotel was clean and comfortable.2021-02-24"
"The hotel was a bit noisy, but overall it was a good, clean place to stay. There was a restaurant right next door, and another one less than a block away.2020-03-12"
"The hotel was rather expensive. The beds were hard, and there was no water pressure in the shower. Not a good experience.2019-10-31"
"The soundproofing was poor, and the neighbors partied into the early morning hours. The bathroom was tiny. The front desk clerks weren't very courteous. Breakfast cost $11. The ice machine was broken. Find a different hotel.2022-11-20"

"There was construction underway that affected my allergies. The hotel clerk was nice and helpful.2022-09-09"
"Great experience. The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. The only drawback was that the whirlpool had too much chlorine, so we couldn't stay too long because it burned out eyes to stay in the pool area.2022-02-22"
"Nice, clean hotel. The room was comfortable and spacious. Be sure to get to breakfast before 9 AM.2021-05-26"

"A bit hard to find. Nice hotel and staff. Breakfast was good.2017-11-21"
"The toilet in our room wouldn't flush, and it took 2 calls and 45 minutes to get someone to come fix it. We arrived at the hotel only to find out the restaurant couldn't start our dinner for a half hour, so we ended up going elsewhere to eat. The elevator was slow and sounded like it was about to come apart.2019-05-30"
"We weren't given the room type we reserved, but the hotel staff asked us if we wanted to change rooms the next day. The restaurant and bar service was terrible.2018-10-24"

"Close to IKEA. The hotel was nice and clean. A housekeeper got on the elevator with a large bag and pushed the button before we were able to exit; we had to use our hands to stop the doors from closing. Great breakfast. Good place to stay.2018-05-02"
"Excellent service, and the staff provided a great restaurant recommendation. I highly recommend this hotel.2020-12-07"
"The circular drive in front got congested. Fast check-in and nice lobby. There was hair on the sofa in our suite, and the sink didn't drain well. The hallways needed vacuuming, and the table and decorations by the elevators were covered in dust and fingerprints. The elevators were speedy. Don't expect the hotel to be especially clean.2018-11-01"
"We were disappointed. While the staff was responsive, the hotel has deteriorated since our last stay. The carpets were worn and frayed, the furniture was stained, and there seemed to be a lack of upkeep. We requested housekeeping service, but what we got was just fresh towels and the folding back of the comforter. No other housekeeping was done. The restaurant was just a small grill. We won't stay here again.2022-05-19"
"Easy walk to many restaurants, coffee shops, bars, shopping, Cinemark Palace at The Plaza, and Jacob Loose Memorial Park - historic and charming boutique hotel with loads of atmosphere - room was cozy - free in-room Internet access worked especially well - top-notch customer service.2012-09-01"
"Not worth the price. The shower door leaked water all over the bathroom floor. We had to wipe it up with the towels, and when we asked for more towels, housekeeping said they didn't speak English. When I called the front desk, I was told that rooms were only serviced every other day. The hallway carpet was dirty. There was only 1 working elevator, and it wasn't readily available. Find a better hotel.2023-04-17"
"The hotel was close to the hospital, and the room was clean and quiet. Parking was convenient to the entrance. I highly recommend staying here.2022-03-15"

"The hotel was showing its age. The room was damp, the door was worn, and the bathroom fixtures needed to be replaced. The beds were comfortable. Very poor housekeeping, but the maintenance staff was responsive and helpful. Get to breakfast early if you want hot selections. The attendants were cheery.2015-07-26"
"Pretty room except for the bathroom. I expected the balcony to be a walk-out, but it was not. Had problems with the key card, which was annoying. Great breakfast and drinks a-plenty in the evening, which was awesome. Nice hotel; experience it for yourself.2015-06-15"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
