What an awesome place. We have stayed here several times and loved it every time. The staff is so courteous and helpful, the breakfast is awesome and the rooms and everything about this place are totally great!

We were really pleased with this hotel. Clean, good location next to I-70 and several good restaurants in the vicinity. Each person can have three drinks and a mini snack such as hot dogs/nachos. Also a good breakfast. All complimentary. Friendly staff. Great internet access.

The staff is very friendly, the hotel is clean and safe and very convenient! I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice place to stay at a reasonable price. I will be returning to the hotel when I am in the area again!

I was pleasantly surprised by my recent experience with the Drury Inn. This was my first stay with this hotel brand, and I didn't know what to expect. Customer service was great at each encounter, room was very clean, and the outside grounds were clean and well-lit. My shower had decent pressure and the bed was comfortable. I stayed 4 nights and the hotel was busy each day. The breakfast offers a good variety, and they also have an evening reception with complimentary cocktails and snacks. If you're not too picky about your food, you could easily consider the snacks a full meal. This location offered salad, soup, potatoes, nachos, hot dogs, and another rotation option such as tacos. A family traveling on a budget should definitely consider staying here. If you'd prefer to eat something else, the hotel is close to several dining options.

We stayed at the Drury Inn on our recent trip to Independence for the National Corsa (Corvair) Convention held at a nearby hotel. Check in was very smooth and trouble free. The room was comfortable, quiet and clean. The housekeeping staff was attendant to our requests and always very friendly. The hot breakfast was good, with quite a few choices and GOOD coffee. The evening menu was varied and good as well, especially with the baked potato side. Also available was soup and salad. We felt like staying at the Drury saved us money in the long run just considering the meals. Management should be proud of the staff. They were always friendly, had a quick smile and were always ready to go above and beyond what was expected. Overall a real pleasure !

We really enjoyed our stay at this location. The check in was very efficient and friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable, we felt very safe. The cocktails, dinner and breakfast were all good. All of the staff seemed to go out of their way to be sure the guest were happy.

I recently stayed at this Drury Inn during a business trip. I was there for four nights and impressed every day. The hotel was new, clean, and the bed was very comfortable. I was most impressed with the staff who were always friendly and helpful. It was a great visit.

Exceptional service from all areas of the hotel that we experienced. Quick and efficient check-in. While dining we were asked if they could get or do anything for us. The food was very good with a nice variety of choices for both breakfast and dinner. We were there for a softball tournament and our schedule worked perfectly to enable us to make it to both meals for a change. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and had exactly what we needed for our stay. The bathrooms were very well maintained and cleaned. Love the dispensers in the shower! We love staying at Drury Inns!

We have stayed at this location in the past as well as multiple other Drury Inns in other cities. We have always had a wonderful experience. I am always impressed with the cleanliness, the comfortable beds and facilities and the genuine friendliness of the staff. It is refreshing to be greeted by people that you can tell are content with their jobs and take pride in the service that they provide. This facility has an excellent team. I was especially pleased to see that the awesome lady that manages the breakfast crowd, "Louise" was there again. Her personality shines and makes every single guest feel special. We stayed 3 nights -- and were very happy to take advantage of an offer to receive 500 additional rewards points by declining housekeeping. Nice touch Drury! You Rock!

Decided to spontaneously book a room here for new year's eve for my family. Kids loved the indoor/outdoor pool. Breakfast was excellent. Rooms were very modern and clean even though this property is over 10 years old at this point. Drury is a great, Missouri-based hotel chain and it's no wonder they do so well. Can always expect a great product.
