I have stayed here several times and hoped things had improved since they are now non-smoking. However, the leftover cigarette smoke lingers and for a non-smoker it's just nasty. The task chair sits so low and makes it impossible to work at the desk. I stayed for the points but really don't think it's worth it. I was also not recognized as a member but saw someone the following day recognized. Guess that's hit and miss.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bigfish717 Clean, spacious rooms
Wanted a hotel with clean rooms for our crawling baby. The room was great as it had a kitchenette for preparing his food and was big enough to have a separate space for his pack n play so it wouldn't have to be right next to the bed. Our room faced the highway and was by the elevator so there was some white noise, but it wasn't bothersome.

Have stayed here probably four times. If it was not the best I would not keep coming back. The decor is very inviting. Close to many fine restaurants and shopping. The best asset is the staff. The desk personnel make checking in smooth. The housekeeping staff are hard working and friendly. Scott in maintenance is outgoing and a great representative for the hotel. Oh, the Salt Water Pool is wonderful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dragonsluver Fantastic!
We are on a road trip from Indiana to California. This was on our way home. So glad we found this place. The room was perfect. Loved the fridge and microwave. When I checked in I was given 2 free Sprites for being an IHG member. I'm used to just water so this was fantastic. Every employee we got close to was very kind. We swam in the awesome salt water pool. It was so warm and felt fantastic. We walked over to the Rib Crib and I gotta say it was the best BBQ we had ever had!!!! The breakfast in the morning had everything you needed. The lady working there was running and working hard to make sure everything was perfect. She did a wonderful job. We would definitely stay here again cause it was a wonderful experience. Thank you so much!!!
Might even plan a trip to come back cause there is a lot in the area to do.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kokeshj Welcoming service and quiet location
I was pleasantly surprised when I was thanked for being a rewards member and was offered a beverage. Check-in was fast and the front desk person was very helpful. The room was clean and spacious. It was a nice place to relax and even though it was off of the interstate, it was very quiet location. Great place to stay and would stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stripes Good experience.
We spent two nights here but honestly weren't at the hotel much. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean which is 99% of what I want in a hotel. The staff was friendly and asked us on a couple of occasions if we needed anything. The hotel is convenient to interstate 70 and has many shopping and restaurant options nearby. The continental breakfast was very good: scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy, bagels, etc. Free parking. Doesn't appear to be a high crime area. I would stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CC22 great staff
The staff was extremely helpful and friendly! The room was nice and comfortable.
It would have been nice to have a booklet or information sheet giving the hours breakfast, the pool and the exercise rooms were open as well as information on phone charges. My cell phone died while I was there and I hesitated to use the phone!
I would happily stay there again!
With no sign at the corner to direct me where to turn it took a while to find you!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vicky57 Customer Service was EXCELLENT!!!
I would like to commend the staff in particular the breakfast manager and the maintenance manager. Room was quiet and clean. The only thing that would make the experience unbelievable would be a better selection of breakfast foods. Only coffee, juice and hot tea for breakfast. No soda or iced tea choices.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BigGameHunter Liked it overall
I was pleasantly surprised someone read my online request for room placement & gave us what we asked for (something that I've not had good luck with at other hotels). My only issue was that the breakfast area was the only public area for resting, and was filled with loud children and teenagers (nothing the hotel could have done, but...). Breakfast was okay, but I wouldn't recommend using the pancake maker if you have anything else on your plate (get them separately on a 2nd trip). A bit pricey, but worth the extra expense.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Obsurd Smoke in a non-smoking room
I have stayed at this hotel many times. I have always had a non-smoking room. This time, smoke was the first thing you smelled when you opened the door to the room. It was almost as if the help was using this room for a smoke break. This alone will make me think twice before I stay there again.
I am also a priority club member. Typically a member will be given more accessible rooms than one on the third floor.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TimfromEngland Poor Start but got better
Initially I was very disappointed with this hotel. The receptionist who booked me in was simply not interested. She did not recognize my Priority Club status or even log it against the booking. I therefore did not receive the usual room upgrade I get with Platinum Status. This was at sharp contrast to all my previous stays in Holiday Inn Express.
Fortunately, however, other staff at the hotel were faultless, friendly and helpful. Sadly one bad egg can spoil a review.

One of the best desk clerks I have ever met. The room was clean, the hotel overall was in good shape. I will be staying here again if I am ever in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MOVisitor Wonderful service
We were in town for one night for a funeral. We found ourselves wishing we could have stayed longer and under better circumstances, because this was a great hotel. Service was terrific. The staff was very helpful. Chocolate chip cookies at the check-in counter were wonderful. The free breakfast was far better than most similarly priced hotels. The beds were very comfy, and the hotel was very quiet.
My only complaint is the poor Wi-Fi connection. But...this may have been because of the location of our room. The entrance roof overhang was right by our window, so that may have caused a problem with our internet connection. ( ? ).
Anyway, overall a great stay. I definitely recommend this hotel, and would stay here again.

Hugo, the front desk man, was awesome! He was so helpful and nice getting us directions to restaurants we wanted to eat at. He even called them for us to make sure they were open and if we needed reservations. He was excellent and very much appreciated!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NativeKansan engaging staff aand more room than expected
Staff interacted with us as we came and went. Not intrusive, just friendly and informative. Room was bigger than expected with pull out sofa couch and sitting are separate from bed area. Everything was clean, only disappointment was how fast the chocolate chip cookies disappeared in the evening. Easy place to travel around KC from I-70.
