NICE HOTEL, GREAT LOCATION

Hotel with Great Hospitality
An older hotel with old-fashioned hospitality. Our interior room had a sky light in lieu of a window. It was great on a summer night but the summer sun arrived early for us. Make sure you visit the charming private garden for guests complete with a pond.

Very nice accommodations. Down to earth ownership as evidenced by the charming decor in the lounge areas. Nice change from the "big box" hotels. Quick stress free drive to Kauffman stadium. Nice breakfast. And even the same toilet paper you put in your own home! I would highly recommend this hotel.
