The hotel was dirty and smelled bad. The rooms were dirty, the sheets appeared dirty and the beds were made poorly, the TV did not work, and there was not sufficient water pressure to shower. There was nothing to like about this hotel so the low price was at a huge cost. I would never stay there again.

Room smelled wasn't clean Dusty, everything smelled like smoke. Pretty sure rooms were harboring meth heads and hookers no joke it's what we saw. Do yourself a favor and spend more money! We had to go out and buy air freshener because the room smelled so bad just to get through two nights!

Although I reserved a room for two nights, I only stayed here a total of 20 minutes. After waiting 5 minutes for the attendant to finish his phone call and check me in, I arrived to quite the site when I reached my room. Upon turning on a light near the chair, a swarm of some kind of insects immediately...

Location worked for what we needed, but would definitely not recommend staying there. Cigarette burns, cracked mirror, smelled like smoke, very displeasing visually. I failed to read reviews before booking room. The reviews are accurate in stating the hotel was horrific and terrible

This place is as bad as all the other reviews say! I booked this hotel quickly online before reading the reviews...tragic mistake. Arrived to a parking lot that looked like a drug transaction was going down. Should have been the 1st clue this place was "special". They have one entrance that the manager buzzes you in. The manager was friendly...

We went to this hotel for a wedding and just needed a clean place to sleep before getting on the road. We arrived to a slew of homeless folks in the parking and a disgusting room with rings around the toilet with only 2 towels. The bed felt like sleeping on the floor and the AC unit was punched out....

We were warned that this hotel was an absolute horror. We needed something close to the hospital and something that wasn't going to cost an arm and a leg. That said, this hotel was old, smelly and very uncomfortable. We knew going in it would be bad, but it was worse than we expected. Breakfast was non-existent. We chose to...

Pros: Very cheap, location only a mile or so from Westport bars and Crown Plaza, with local restaurants/chain restaurants in walking distance. The room was clean and housekeeping was prompt with cleaning room and providing towels, etc. I did not feel unsafe in the area surrounding the hotel. There is a small pool, even though I didn't use it during...

Needed an affordable hotel near downtown KC for a convention, so we made reservations here. Unfortunately, this property put off bad vibes from the moment we arrived. It was about 11:00 pm, and just across the parking lot, a man was shouting obscenities into a cell phone. Then I saw the night check-in window--the kind with bullet-proof glass. You don't...

The hotel was HORRIBLE! When we first walked into our room it reeked of pot. The bathroom floor was dirty, there were only 2 towels (no hand towels, wash cloths, or mat) the remote didn't work, all lights had to be plugged up, and the window was cracked. I'm pretty sure there was a guy making drug deals in the...
