Just right...

Stay was nice. Big breakfast buffet every morning down in the hotel restaurant. We had plans to attend a Royals game, so this hotel was perfectly located. Seemed like the hotel could use some updates/upgrades though, like it's getting kind of worn down. The staff was very nice, helpful & pleasant. It was disappointing when we arrived that our room did not include the water park resort tickets for Coco Keys. Be aware: when purchasing from a third party vendor, the water park is extra. Otherwise, overall it was a pleasant stay & we will probably stay there again when we return to KC for a Royals game.

Over Priced for what you get - nice for free shuttle to stadium though.

Even with a deal on the room, this was very overpriced in my opinion for what you got. small ordinary hotel room - NO QUEEN SIZE in double beds - ONLY FULL SIZE - not good if more than 2 people in the room. They have NO QUEEN SIZE BEDS. Full or King only. Indoor pool was so packed couldn't get in and no room to sit anywhere. Looked like a birthday party going on with cake and kids everywhere. For a Royals game, parking lot was full and had to drive around to find parking. People must come, park and use the shuttle over. Staff was very friendly & helpful though. Rooms need updated though. Not the best part of KC to go driving around, but if your going to waterpark or game it is fine. Don't go walking anywhere but to game if you stay here. I will stay at Super 8 next time and get a better room and size of bed for 4x less.

Not a 3 star hotel

First off, after we had already checked in, the hotel clerk very rudely said, that since we booked through O r b i t z that we would not receive any complementary passes to the waterpark. Even though when booking I could not find anything that says the passes were not included... But, whatever we paid the $15 for the one day pass for the waterpark and we were not impressed. The pool and surrounding area were very dirty and did not compare to other indoor water parks that we have been to in the past. Very disappointed. The room was also nothing special. The mattress was very old and warn out and had a hump in the middle of it. There were large red stains on the carpet by the bed and bed comforter, doubt they were cleaned. The only reason I gave the hotel a 2 was because the breakfast buffet in the morning was very good and all of the food in the restaurant that we had was excellent and reasonably priced.

Waiting Waiting Waiting

I normally do not write bad reviews because I believe it's a personal experience. However, this time I have to just say it like it is. First, if you want to get to your room expect to wait at the elevators every time for at least 10-15 minutes. Standing there with a 2 year old not so wonderful. We wasted so much time waiting waiting waiting. The room was ok nothing special but the air conditioning quit working about three hours into our stay. The water park which is why we stayed at this hotel was overcrowded to say the least. Overall, I would never stay at this hotel again.

worth the drive

I was hesitant about driving 3 hours to stay at this hotel after several of the poor reviews i read before booking our stay. I was pleased when we arrived in a clean room with heat and ac that worked nicely. Everything was as it should be in our room, and for the amount of kids and youth sporting teams staying in the hotel, the room was quiet also. The only negative comments I have, which didn't affect the quality of my stay, were that the ceiling leaked in several corners of the dining room, in the entry way to the men's locker room of the coco keys water resort, and caused ceiling tiles to get wet and fall to the floor in the hallway leading to the game room. It was kind of tacky seeing trash cans and cups catching rain water. Also, the water resort was more geared towards kids. We had fun getting away for the weekend don't get me wrong, but I would say anyone over 14 is too old to really have a blast at this resort. Overall, it was worth the drive and I would book again if we were in the area.
