Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by j_m1964 Excellent Location for Pro Football or Pro Baseball games in KC!!!
My family and I stayed at this hotel during the Vikings vs Chiefs preseason football game. This is a great location for either games at Arrowhead Stadium or the KC Royals stadium.
This is a family friendly hotel and has many amenities for their guests.
The hotel provided to and from shuttle services to the game free of charge. This was a great perk, expecially since we had children with us.
We did not pay extra to utilize the CoCo Keys water park, however, the hotel has an additional indoor and outdoor pool free of charge for guests. We did swim in the indoor pool which was clean, and the water was well heated.
The hotel also had a pretty decent arcade for kids that offered games such as skeeball, a wide variety of video games, air hockey, etc. Here kids can play games to win tickets for prizes. A nice addition for people traveling with children, who want to pass some time.
The food at the hotel's bar/grill restaurant was reasonably priced and good quality. The draft beer at the bar was way overpriced, but likely to keep sports fans from getting hammered for the games.
The room was clean and comfortable. Nothing fancy, but a nice room with comfortable beds. We had two beds in the room. The beds were a little small, but comfortable.
The breakfast buffet is very good. It runs about $15.99 per person, so not cheap by any means, but it had a good variety of food, and everything tasted well.
You can probably do a little better budgetwise by booking a hotel further from the stadiums, but if you take into account the cost to park at the stadiums, plus fighting traffic etc. it is probably a wash moneywise. I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mn_state_rep Not Bad, But a Bit Pricey
I read earlier reviews about bad carpet and poor service. Much of the carpet does indeed need to be replaced. Service was outstanding. My biggest complaint would have to be the cost of the room and that for the high price of the room, they want you to spend even more money in their restaurant. Parking can be an issue on the weekend of a Chiefs game. We waited about 15 minutes for shuttle after game and decided to walk back to motel. Overall a good experience, but a bit pricey for what you get.

We enjoyed our visit, we will be back again. Our kids enjoyed the waterpark and we enjoyed the relaxation time.

I found the hotel to be very comfortable and clean, and the staff extremely friendly. I will definitely be staying in this Holiday Inn on my next trip to Kansas City.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SB63 Great for those with kids, or with lots of time to check-in
One would think that hotel management, knowing that their property was sold out for the evening, and that there was an NFL game that night, might expect a rush of people checking in at check-in time. Apparently not THIS hotel's management. The line to check in wound through the lobby and almost into the restaurant. It took about 45 minutes to get through the line. For a time, there was only one clerk working the desk. Then another appeared, and then another. After checking in two parties, the third left and never came back, leaving the two to handle the crowd. The food and service in the bar were fantastic, and everyone was very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, the experience checking in overshadowed the rest of the experience. Lots of kids running around the property and the smell of chlorine was everywhere, but it's an indoor waterpark. What else would you expect?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by procraft11 business trip
I have stayed at this property many times. Staff is very friendly, rooms are clean. It's an older property but overall is well maintained. On my last two visits I never could get the room cool. I had the AC set at 60. After 14 hours on high it's still not very cool. On my last trip my son brought his PS3 and could not get online. I'm not sure what that's about, he couldn't even get it to come on. He figured the HDMI slots have somehow been deactivated.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KCJF Here for work..stay for play
This is a quality hotel for the price. If you are here for business you truly want to stay for the waterpark. I love that it is consistently clean, breakfast is yummy, and staff is friendly. Be cautious that this is a busy hotel and can be extremely busy on weekends, particularly the amount of kids. If you are looking for a good deal and good service, this is your place.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tmbrwolf326 Great if using water park
This hotel is great if using the water park. If not stay away. Parking is limited unless you want to walk uphill. The room was not very clean. Stains on the carpet and candy trash when we checked in. Did not restock wash clothes-we had to call for some. Not very happy with this hotel.
