Hotel is in a nice part of town, conveniently located Felt safe Honestly I’d call this review a 35

The hotel lobby was so nice, throughout the hotel was clean Pool was nice and kid friendly! The fitness center was underwhelming compared to other La Quinta’s we had been in, and about half of the equipment was broken/damaged The room was nice in appearance and clean, but smelled like other pets when we arrived Front desk staff when I called for the reservation wasn’t the best customer service, but after we arrived the experience was pleasant

Anna and Bradley Lane

I chose his hotel because I frequently stay at La Quinta‘s, and this is close to the airport for my 6 AM flight I was pleasantly surprised with the updated lobby, cleanliness, easy check-in experience The staff was gracious, warm, and very accommodating – Even when I checked in at 9 PM

The hotel and parking lot seemed very secureMy room was updated with nice finished, very comfortable, and quiet Those are the things I ask especially before traveling for work I will absolutely stay again

Stevana Clark

Rooms were good and clean, comfortable beds, only issue was that it was hot and the a/c didn’t work well at all Pool was nice but they shut off the lights at 9:20 and the pool wasn’t supposed to close until 10pm Wasn’t a fan of there only being one entrance into the hotel

Breakfast was inedible We ended up going somewhere else to eat Will stay somewhere else on our next visit to Kansas City

My husband, children, and I stayed here while enjoying a weekend getaway We checked in late Thursday night While going through our bedtime routine with our kids I noticed that the shower was not working well at all

When the tab was pulled the water continue to come out of the bottom tap and so there was almost no water pressure at the shower head I noticed that the tile around the water spicket was cracked as were our mirror sliding doors The room itself was clean The bedding had some piling, but nothing smelled bad and there was no dust There was not a blanket for the pull-out couch bed and we only were given three towels, but that was quickly rectified with a trip downstairs We slept well The blackout curtains work great and there was very minimal noise for being so close to a train track The next morning I mentioned the issue with the shower and they told me they put it in for maintenance and to just leave the “Do not Disturb” off the door and it would be repaired The breakfast was okay, nothing to write home about, the usual waffles, eggs, a breakfast meat-type fair The people running it however were quite lovely The Friday we came back from our activities and the shower still had not been repaired In addition, I noticed one of the light bulbs was out in the bathroom causing a strobe-like effect when it was turned on We went down to the pool and enjoyed swimming for a while The hot tub is not available for use right now The pool is great for kids We got the kids cleaned off and ready for bed and went about our nighttime routine That Saturday I made sure to go back to the front desk and tell them again that the shower was still not working and also the light was out and could they please ask the cleaners to go through the room My children had gotten some crackers on the floor around the bed and I was not able to clean them up completely When we got back on Saturday they had repaired the shower partially It was definitely much more functional The light bulb was still out And while they had made our bed the crackers or still on the ground Sunday morning we checked out The people working were nice and professional The location was ideal for getting around different places in Kansas City The hotel definitely needs to be updated when it comes to repairing some of the things that are broken rather than just patching them


From check-in to check-out we had a great stay Our room wasn’t fancy, but it was clean and comfortable We both slept well

Breakfast was fresh and proper temperature The lady stocking the breakfast area was very helpful when I had allergen questions about the prepared food Future trips to KC, this will be my first choice for hotels

Jody McLaughlin

The people were very nice The location was fantastic to get to chemo The room itself was a little past its prime

There were black spots on the ceiling and I could not close the drapes because of the heater location The room itself was extremely cleanI did not hear any trains running overnight The breakfast was good and the attendent was very helpful

Seems near everything but they don’t have a shuttle which is a huge inconvenience as while they’re technically near everything you can’t walk My room wasn’t clean as there were hairs I didn’t own in the bathroom but I didn’t feel like dealing with a switch being there for 1 night Breakfast was good

Common areas were clean and the staff was kind

Darren Bachand

A wonderful experience, the staff made me feel at home prior to shift change Mary was wonderful and all around helpful Keimon the night shift worker was an amazing help as well and it was good talking to both of them My ultimate goal was to make the wife comfortable after coming from KU and the rooms are perfect for that

Coming from a different place this hotel made me feel the most at home

First our room was cool, despite the portable air conditioner sitting in the bedroom and could have been a tripping hazard We noticed our room was 1of 2 with this kind of unit being vented out the window Second when we got ready to use the hot tub, it didn’t work

When I asked the desk, I was told it was out of order and they probably should get a sign up Then after I showered I looked all over the room for a hair dryer, nothing So I tried to call front desk, and the phone didn’t work So I got dressed and went to front desk I was told they were in the process of replacing the hair dryers I asked if they had one I could take up to the room and was told no The motel wasn’t full, but no offer to get one from another room Finally when we went down to eat, I thought a bagel might be good When I started cutting it, the guy next to me who had just tried fixing a bagel told me good luck that I might need a chainsaw Threw it away, went for eggs, they were cold Ugh! Definitely not a good stay


Hotel was very dirty- bathroom had hair all over it The room did It appear to have been cleaned in some time

Rooms are out dated and not maintained Bed was overly firm We were traveling with other families and they had ants in their room Hotel staff sprayed but did not offer another room or to compensate them Breakfast was not good Entire hotel needs a good scrub down and remodel Only plus is it’s proximity to things Would not recommend

Erica Sharp

They were short staffed on our weekend stay We paid for the highest room for a couples getaway and our floors were not well cleaned, the remote for the TV didn’t work, the bed and pillows felt so hard and lumpy and the front desk couldn’t be inconvenienced for anything I can appreciate the low staff causing stress, but rudeness when we call and make a request is not acceptable

Won’t be going back and not worth what we paid It’s a bummer because the jacuzzi suite has great potential

Reunion turn out great 2 Nice outdoor spaces Pool was nice, had towels at the pool

Was a busy pool Breakfast was good Rooms were extra nice Had a conference room for the weekend We used it all the time All the staff was very accommodating Watch the parking If you don’t have a pass visible in your car, you might get towed I will go again

Ramon Fierros

Christa (Front Desk Attendant) and Chase (Manager) are friendly, professional, and competent Location is excellent Hotel pool and basketball court are very nice

Constructive FeedbackRooms need these improvements:1 Replace the AC units (end of life)2 Install a shower door to prevent water from the shower spraying to the bathroom floor3 Shower floors are slippery Potential for people slipping and getting hurt Provide a floor mat and install a hand rail on the inside of the shower4 Housekeeping could pay better attention to detail when it comes to cleaning the rooms In particular, trash under the extending sofa, some leftover hair in the shower, and vacuuming the cornersThese improvements will bring the hotel up to Marriott standardsHope this helps


The location of the hotel is great, but that is the only positive I can giveThe room I stayed in was pretty gross, there were hairs in the bathroom shower and floor from previous guest, there were crumbs on the floor as if a vacuum was never used, and the walls/doors were truly filthy – they all had dirty splash marks, just overall very dirty You would think that for the ridiculous amount they charged the room could have been cleaner

The breakfast was also blah When I checked out I told the person at the front desk about my experience, he was apologetic and polite but that was about itI had stayed at this Marriott several years ago and my experience back then was much different which is why I chose to stay again, but that will be the last time I give this hotel my business You can do better Marriott!!!

Overall disappointing Front desk staff was not overly friendly and did not inform me that there would be no daily housekeeping The room I was put in had a very overwhelming musty smell that did not dissipate after running the AC

The room and overall facility are very dated The outlets next to the beds were so loose it had a hard time holding my charger The mattresses were sunken in and obviously very old There was hair in the shower, and mold spores on the bathroom ceiling There was a thermostat on the wall in the bedroom however it was non-functional… you had to adjust the temperature at the window unit itself Not a big deal but it just shows how lazy they are they couldn’t remove and patch the hole on the wall where the thermostat was So they just disconnected it and left it there The nicest person in the entire hotel over the course of my stay was the Lady who made the breakfast Every morning she went out of her way to say good morning to every single person who came in Give this woman a raise! The front desk staff need to take a customer service lesson from her! The breakfast met expectations with a good variety for this type of hotel Overall very disappointing in my stay I will not be back

Deb Loiselle

Definitely a nice hotel and what I expect when visiting a Hilton property People are friendly, beds & pillows are comfortable, it’s clean, and offers a nice breakfast My only suggestion for improvement is to do better maintenance on A

C unit The one in our room was noisy and we couldn’t use it if we wanted a decent night’s sleep Thankfully we could open the window for air circulation It’s too bad there’s not a gas/convenience store nearby

fatima lynn

Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful breakfast was fulfilling and plenty for my family the beds were completely clean and comfortable The tvs in the rooms were clear and lots of great channels kid friendly the lobby and hallways smelled clean of some sent that my husband asked for the name so we can have it in our home Overall stay was great we will be back for another visit

We also enjoyed the close distance to mall and stadium

Best staff ever!! Rooms were comfortable, they even had a comfy roll out that we used with everything in the cabinet Huge bathroom, set up for three people, enough towels and tea tree shampoo, conditioner and shower gel in the shower The shower head had different settings

The only con for our room was it needed and extra mirror

Okiegirl 60

We stayed 2 nights and recieved no maid service while we were there You have to stay 3 nights or longer forFresh towels, trash removal or clean sheets! I asked for clean towels at the desk, he seemed put out to even get up

There were hockey teams that could not keep quiet Kids running everywhere I wish the hotel could put adults that want quiet in one area We won’t be back

Conveniently located next to 435 and Shawnee-Mission, after a week of vacationing with the kids my wife and I were excited to have a weekend getaway in Shawnee Unfortunately this hotel was really lacking compared to other Marriotts I’ve visitedWe got a couple’s suite just down the hall from the front desk

The bar was not operational, which was not made known when booking the stay The breakfast was subpar as well, not offering what was advertised online Their reasoning was covid which seemed to be an easy scapegoat After ordering our drinks, we watched as a couple other customers walked up, ordered, got their beverages, and then left Finally realized they were just not making our order so I had to go ask where our drinks were and they said they forgot themOnly one jet in the room’s jacuzzi was operationalThe front desk does sell individual beer and one of the beers they sell is locally made in KCMO I wish I would have taken a picture because it was delicious and I would totally give them a shoutoutI’ve had some amazing experiences at Marriott hotels, this just wasn’t one of them

I highly recommend this hotel! My daughter, her boyfriend & I went to a concert at Azura Amphitheater in Bonner Springs (less than 10 minutes away if you take away the traffic) and this was the perfect choice to stay The room itself along with the entire hotel was super clean Our stay was short but we loved it!The location is perfect with food choices & shopping all around!

Jeff Beaver

Very nice hotel Very clean and new looking Beds were very comfortable and clean

LARGE room and suite for what I was expecting2 beds, separate shower/toilet area from the sink Kitchen had a full size fridge/freezer, a small stove top, dishwasher, sink and cabinets filled with plates and cups etcThere was nothing at all dirty or wrong with the room I could say My kids thought it was a lot of fun Has a pool area, basketball court outside Nice breakfast with a large eating area2 Tesla chargers and a single lvl 2 J1772 available for freeNegatives would be maybe they need some more service staff? Pool didn’t have towels (Were provided when we went and asked)Random things weren’t stocked like the covid added wipes placed around, which I didn’t and wouldn’t have used, but I just noticed they were emptyNo hot tub which is fine but adults like itOverall was a great stay, would come back for sure

Morgan Halverson

I usually love Homewood Suites but this was a different experience Not clean rooms, pool was not very clean and never had towels Called the staff for more towels (on my cell because the pool phone didn’t work) and got a rude response – and they never brought towels

Digital key quit working and staff wasn’t able to fix it Trash and dirty dishes in my room when I checked in No hair dryer in one room, broken one in the other roomBreakfast was really good and breakfast staff was awesome Rooms are big and hotel location is great

The best part of our stay was Georgia who worked the front desk! She was so sweet and took the time to actually strike up a conversation with me while I was getting checked in The room was spacious and comfortable The room did have a bit of a weird smell, and there was a huge stain on the sofa in our king suite

All in all, a great place to stop on a road trip!

The room wasn’t all that clean The first morning breakfast there were not enough silverware for everyone, nor was there enough food for everyone When my husband and I checked out the front desk employee was in the dining area cleaning up, my husband got her attention and she almost seemed annoyed we bothered her

She asked us our last name as she walked over to the front desk, copied the receipt crumbled it up, and handed it to us not saying a word Don’t think we will be staying there again There are plenty of other motels to choose from!
