We were traveling home and needed a one night stay. They put us in room 125. The room smelled like dog and cat pee so strong it was unbearable. Since it was last minute we had prepaid and they would not refund. The room was by a back door outside that didn't have a lock on it. I complained right...

10 family members here for a weekend at Adventureland. Our King bed room was a roomy suite, the 2 double queen rooms were a little small. The front desk staff were all very helpful and friendly. The breakfast room is small and not the best selection, but was acceptable. Very handy location for Aventureland Park. Our king bed was comfortable,...

I called the hotel with a family emergency, I did not know the room number and asked to be transferred. I'm not sure if the front desk person just didn't know what they were doing or what but I've managed more then one choice hotels as a GM and to be told they won't transfer (no information requested) is the...

Comfort Inn used to be the Settle Inn, which had really deteriorated over the years. They renovated the rooms and lobby, which are much improved. The beds were comfortable and we enjoyed the DirecTV. That was the good. On the downside, the wi-fi never worked during our stay. The front desk explained it was because "there were a lot of...

We stayed one night while visiting Adventureland. This hotel has all new furnishings. Beds were comfortable. We stayed on the third floor and it was very quiet. The pool was fun. The only con I have would be the breakfast area being too small. We ended up taking our breakfast back up to our room to eat due to no...

When we got to our room the door appeared to be closed but it pushed open when we attempted to use the keycard. We then flicked up the light switch just inside the door and nothing happened. We then noticed the very musty smell. There was no exhaust fan so we had to live with it. The wifi wasn't working...

Went to Prairie Meadow race track/casino and found this motel right across from track. It was the most reasonable in the immediate area. It has just been updated and although basic it was very clean and beds comfy. Included free wi-fi, refrigerator, coffee maker, plus a breakfast which included scrambled eggs and sausage one day and biscuits and gravy plus...

“Our Tip for you is to stay across the Street at Adventureland Inn.”
  • Toilet build-up where water enters the toilet bowl at top of bowl. This is long-term buildup
  • Our Room Shower Shelf area. Distressed and in need of better investment and maintenance upkeep.
