Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jackie123456789 Dont try to check in early
Tried early check willing to pay and they said my rooms were not ready. At 3pm for check in they still said my room was not ready. I had two rooms the first i was able to get at 3:30 and the second not unitl 6pm. The pool was nice. The room smelled like smoke even though a smoke free hotel. The staff seemed clueless on how to make things right. Housekeeping was nice. I was expecting better quality of service and hotel from Holiday Inn but it did not even meet Motel expectations for me. Should have stayed across the street

The beds were hard as rocks and everything seemed dirty and sticky. This Hotel reminds me of the old Holiday Inns before you classed up the corporate image with Holiday Inn Express.

My room was very clean and the service was great. Hotel is older but the up keep is as good or better then a new hotel. Its dated but the design is unique which is refreshing to see.

I have stayed at the hotel more than once - but I must say this time was the worst.
The room I received must have not been stayed in, in quite sometime. It was the very last room in the hallway across from the guest laundry. In order to get there you had to pass the hotel laundry, which was open and not to appealing to a customer. I mean I dont take the guest in my home to my laundry room - they just want to know the towels are clean.
Anyway - the bathroom had spiderwebs on the toilet seat, the floor was not clean, and the shower head had alot of calcium deposit built up on it. . The bathroom had the feel of your great grandmother's 1950's bathrrom. The room was on the bottom floor facing the bar, and happy hour was very happy. Not sure why they would set up a bar outside the rooms that you are trying to rest in. The room was damp, I assume from the indoor pool (the entire room felt this way). The breakfast was much to be desireed - good thing they had toast.

Based on the cleanliness, or lack of, the roar of the air conditioning and general lack of care for this property, we would not stay again and would not recommend. The only positive for this stay was the proximity to the attractions we were in KC for.

We had a reunion of softball players to honor our 87 year old coach. Most of us hadn't seen each other in 40 years. The hotel staff could not have made it more welcoming and hospitable. The room was set up perfectly, the beverages were readily available and they even opened the bar early for us, and the food items were great. The kitchen staff was very attentive to our needs and kept everything refreshed and tidy. Overall, it was a perfect location in terms of geography and room qualities for our group of 30. We appreciate all you did for us to make it go so smoothly.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by bizeemom74 HORRIBLE!!
We had the worst experience staying at this hotel! I will never stay here ever again and I would not recommend anyone to stay here as well. The rooms smelled like smoke, the beds WERE NOT QUEEN SIZE they were more like full size beds. The bathroom floors and bathtub were not that clean. It looked like someone just wiped it down quick with a damp cloth. The corners of the floor by the floor boards looked rotten and started pulling away from the wall. When I booked the rooms the receptionist did not tell us about the free breakfast that is included if you do a $4.00 upgrade. They did not come and make the beds, bring us fresh towels or tidy up the room while we were gone. The trash outside of the front doors was piled high and no one emptied it for a whole day! The carpet in the hallways was absolutely disgusting! This hotel is not worth the money we paid per night! The only good thing about this hotel was the pool area and hot tub was in good condition. I am very disappointed in this hotel and won't be going back. The only reason we booked this hotel was it because it was close to the theme parks we were attending and it had 3.5 stars and seemed fairly clean from the pictures on the website.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by edilges1 Excellent stay
The staff were friendly. The room was nice and clean, with the exception of the carpet was really dirty, they could use a scrubbing. Also, the outlets are really loose, the alarm clock plug and the TV plug fell out of the socket, so have a back up alarm. They have a nice breakfast, bar and lounge area. They indoor pool and hot tub was perfect. Everything was as I expected and it was a pleasant 4 day stay.

I arrived in KC planning to attend a Royals game, only to learn that it had sold out. While I was checking into the hotel, the clerk (Cory) and bus driver (Susie, if I remember correctly) quickly set me up on StubHub so I could buy a last minute ticket. Definitely exceeded my expectations.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Really a good guy! Loud AC prevented a decent nights sleep!
I consider myself uber loyal to the HI brand but RARELY fill out these requests for reviews. BUT I have to say something about this hotel.
GREAT service, GREAT staff, GREAT food and drink. BUT...my #1 need in a hotel is getting a decent nights sleep. Impossible (for me) in this hotel due to the 1970's vintage AC unit in my room. I had read other reviews about the AC being loud but brushed them off as somebody looking to complain about something. Those reviewers were spot on.
It's always risky staying at some of the full service HI's because many of them are older and somewhat outdated. This is one that I'll avoid in my travels to the KC area.
GREAT staff...these folks need to be HI staff trainers!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sheray Asked for non-smoking...didn't get it :(
I thought this was a nice Holiday Inn. I am sure they have a lot of nice rooms. We just didn't get what we asked for when we made reservations back in January - a non-smoking room. Ended up with a smoking room that definitely smelled like it and came with an ash tray in the bathroom. So every day I tried to air out the room as much as I could. Didn't make much difference. Maybe the neighboring rooms allowed smoking. Also the ceiling dripped water by the bed.
I am sure these things can be fixed.
Yes I did try to switch rooms but the hotel was full. But all in all, the room served it's purpose. It had a fridge and microwave and a pretty comfortable bed.

Are family is used to High Quality Service at your Downtown HInn in Rochester Mn. Hotel for the past 20 years..
It was a wake up call..Staying in KCity...The Front desk was Excellent...after that was sub par service...New help at your resteraunt was very slow..45 minute wait for ok food....
The beds in the room were ok..Beds were not very comfortable..
And bathrooms need updating...No fridge in room & AC was super loud.......
Sorry I have to sound so negative...This hotel would be better off as an HDInn Express...
Rochester Mn. HD INN is far superior in many ways.........

Not bad of a stay. The building is a remodeled one so has a book judging cover from the outside. Meets the purpose of staying and leaving. Overall fairly clean, staff were fairly pleasant, they have a breakfast bar which is a little different and unusual; wasn't bad.

The hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful during our stay in Kansas City. Although there was a large group of Jehovah's Witnesses staying at the hotel for 3 days and arriving in groups the staff was very efficient and cool during the check in process. We enjoyed the variety of the menu items for breakfast. The evening meals were moderate in price and very flavorful.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by honest traveler needs improvement
my families overall stay was fair the only real highlight is the pool and hottub that we used daily was nice and the evening meals were good and the staff was very helpful and courteous but the morning buffet is terrible and the kitchen did not have what i wanted to make me something off the menu until after twice asking me can i choose something else, , the beds are very uncomfortable and the a/c is loud, and the morning staff setting up is very loud and do not recommend anyone to get a room on that side of the bldg and the ice machine on our floor was broken the entire stay so had to go to other floors to get ice. the business/internet room only 2 of the 3 computers had internet access and only 1 printer was able to do printing which made it inconvenience when another guest has to wait until the computer is available... my cons are more than my pros so i say it was just a fair stay in my review....

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Car Dealer 2 Some rooms good some rooms not
Many time user of this hotel. I have found there are some rooms that are better than others. The difference is the showers and the air conditioning. This last stay I had room 378 and the a/c fan motor was so loud that I only got a few hours of sleep as every time it came on, the noise of the bad bearing in the fan woke me up. The other reason is the showers. Some rooms have great showers as this one did, but other rooms I have had issues with the valve that when you switch it to shower from the faucet, only half the water comes out the shower and the other half comes out the faucet. I am starting to request my room by number to make sure I have a good stay. Good luck!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mrialsjr Great pool area and restaurant
I stayed last weekend for a convention with my family. The kids stayed in the pool and Saturday night we were treated to a catfish dinner reminiscent of growing up in Mississippi. The chef for dinner service is a New Orleans native and it shows in both his personality and food.
Beds were definitely not new so could have slept more comfortably than what I did. Because of our convention we were able to eat free buffet but it wasn't much more than a warmed continental breakfast. For a breakfast that they would normally charge for I would expect to see some meat out but the pastries were all very good and my wife enjoyed the biscuits and gravy. We were there three mornings and there was 0 variety between the three days.
