The check-in process was smooth with no problems and our room was nice and clean. All the staff seemed friendly and attentive to us. We would stay here again if we had to stay in Mexico, MO. We stayed in a King Suite so our room had a little extra sitting area with a table and a little love seat. There was also a refrigerator in the room. The bathroom was clean and there was an adequate number of towels for us. The king bed was pretty hard and it was fine for me but my wife found it to not be very comfortable. The fold-out bed from the love seat was not comfortable (similar to most fold-out beds). The room was warm and we had to keep the AC running even though it was cool outside. The breakfast was very good. There was a fairly large selection of hot and cold options. There was a waffle maker, sausage links, potatoes, biscuits, gravy, bread and bagels (and a toaster), and eggs. The eggs were weird disks but they were perfect for putting on a biscuit with sausage to make a breakfast biscuit. The biscuits are served at room temperature but 20 seconds in the microwave and they were perfect. I believe there were also some pastries, fruit, and cold cereal available. Drinks included apple juice, orange juice, milk, water, and coffee. I was pleasantly surprised with the breakfast. Overall, if you have to stay in Mexico, MO, then this is probably your only good choice and you shouldn't be disappointed.

The staff here went above and beyond to make our stay amazing. From check-in time until we left, we experienced nothing but positive attitudes from everyone. The rooms were immaculate and extremely comfortable. This was probably the best experience that I've ever had at any hotel.

Any time I am paying under $80 a night for a room I wonder just how much I should expect from a Hotel, but this Hotel was truly great experience. The night we arrived, it was late but we still found parking close to the front desk. The Hotel staff greeted us and were efficient at check-in. We got to our room and it was clean, well stocked, and well taken care of. I saw no differed maintenance of any kind. Everything worked right, the internet and TV service was good, and the remote was sanitized and placed in a fresh cover every day, something I have never seen before, but a great touch. There were plenty of fresh towels, all fluffy and not a single item of furniture or linens seemed to show any stain, wear or tear. You could tell there was a pride of service from the owner, management and staff at every level. My son plugged the toilet up using too much paper, he was able to get a plunger from the front desk, with clean plastic bags to handle it after its use. The vending machine was jammed with a bad dollar bill, I brought it to the attention of the front desk clerk and they fixed it immediately and gave us a refund for the dollar lost. There was individual Heat Pump/AC in each room. It worked well and we had no issue with the room comfort. The beds were good quality, soft but not too soft, and there were four pillows per bed. The pillows were too thick for me, and they all were the same size, this was the only issue I had, but it was not bad enough for me to complain about. I did not try to ask for thinner pillows. The breakfast in the morning had a variety of hot and cold items, it was not like the buffet of high-end hotels, but for a free-breakfast at the price we paid, it was quite nice. They had several types of bread, a waffle maker, toaster, and hot eggs, sausage and breakfast potatoes. I made breakfast muffin one day, and a breakfast biscuit another. The waffles are common, the hot protein was a nice touch. The potatoes were not to my taste, but the sausage and egg were fine. It would have been nice to have some cheese. They also had muffins, danishes, yogurt, juice, coffee and cold cereal. There was a microwave as well. Each day the room was cleaned and it was perfectly made up. I forgot my toothbrush at home, they provided a free brush and paste at the desk for me. The morning of checkout the folio was placed under the door, and everything was correct. The one complaint I have was there was no elevator to the second floor. There are only too floors, if you can't carry your bags upstairs, I suggest you ask for a first floor room. This was not a problem for my 16 year old son and I, but might be for families, or elderly.

We were pleased with our room - it was very roomy and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is typical. It is a good choice for anyone travelling this route. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend it.

Wonderful place. Excellent customer service! Clean. Comfortable beds. Typical breakfast. Worth staying at. They’re accommodating to meet your every need. Weren’t able to take advantage of the swimming pool because of our work schedule but it looked nice. Loved our rest!

The staff is very friendly and this location is tops in cleanliness. We were able to meet the Manager Ken multiple times and he always had a friendly manner and wanted to make sure everything was "top notch ". The pool was being redone but was opened before we left. The pool area was very nice and they are still renovating the hot tub which was no problem for us. We even arranged to stay an extra day it was so nice. Breakfast was good and coffee and tea is always available. Bill, Amy and the housekeeping staff always had a cheerful hello to everyone. Will definitely stay here again next time we are in Mexico.

We made last-minute reservations and our room was ready for us when we arrived an hour later. The property looks new. Restaurants are a short drive away. Beds were very comfortable and the room was quiet.

We were in town for a funeral. The queen executive rooms I had reserved are located only on the second floor. There is no elevator. My elderly mother is unable to climb stairs. The manager, Ken took care of it right away. It meant getting a third room but he was able to keep us all together and helped us out with the pricing. Breakfast was just ok. Coffee was good. Was a good stay overall.

They have great customer service. The rooms were very clean, and it was the best place in Mexico MO to stay. The staff called our rooms shortly after we checked in to make sure every thing was to our satisfaction. I have never had that happen before. If you have to stay in Mexico MO this is the best place by far.

Stayed here for solar eclipse in area. Hotel staff was friendly. Comfortable bed. Rooms decor was older but clean. Breakfast was ready early which helped with our scheduled departure. Grab and go meals were available
