I booked a room here on Monday at 3:30. Arrived at 4 to find door locked with a note to ring bell. Rang bell and waited 10 mins with no response. Attempted to cancel room at 4:15 and was informed by desk clerk to contact Expedia where I made reservation. Was told by both Expedia and owner of this dump that I had to cancel 24 hrs before arrival and that I would be charged for the night. This place is just a rip off and no one should ever book this hotel when I have found nicer reasonable accommodations nearby.
The room itself was very nice. The beds were comfortable and everything was clean. The only complaints I have are that the bathroom was in poorer shape. The walls need to be finished and the bathtub/shower could use a cleanup. Other than that, I would say it is an excellent place to stay.
When we stayed at this property, I had low expectations coming in based upon the previous reviews. However, our room met basic requirements: clean, comfortable bed/linens, smoke free, hot shower, everything worked. Another positive of this location is the staff - very friendly, attentive, and the room was reasonably priced. I would say the level of finish to the room was not very high - but I did not expect much either. There has been remodeling work done, but it is apparent that the contractor who did the work was not highly skilled. Was everything in place? Yes....but the craftsmanship was below average. All doors are exterior and I was concerned about noise. However, we had a very quiet stay and were comfortable. I did not rate it higher just because the property is still rough in a lot of ways.
The beds are very comfortable and price is very reasonable and close to food and shopping very pleasant area close to hiway access small town feel. Two story building coffee available pleasant staff willing to work with customer. Relaxed atmosphere
Had great time for readable price the owner even helped load my motorcycle and the room had a mini fridge and microwave .. Would recommend to family and friends ... Great town with lots of historical sites ... Rooms were clean with new carpet and heating and air we will stay there again in the future
It did have a comfortable bed. The paint was fresh. I think the new management is trying. There was a minifridge and a microwave. If it hadn't have been for the smell (strongly old smoker's room) it would've been OK. (It was supposed to be a non-smoking room, but I guess it had been smoking before). My bill was advertised as $59, and I ended up paying $71 (taxes I guess). If I had paid around $40 or $45, I would have thought, that's fair.
The room we had was recently painted. New decor and bedding. It was clean and a good value. The man at the desk said they just got new beds. If you are short you may have trouble. The bed was unusually high.
The room looked new and smelled new was also the least expensive in town. I've been in probably 100 rooms and this one had a great price to quality ratio. It was nice to have a pizza hut with a buffet next door
I don't know if there is room to write about all the things that are wrong with this motel. We had to go back to the office twice to get a card that would work in the door. The metal around the concrete steps was hanging off and dangerous. The doors between the rooms couldn't be locked and you could see into the next room around the edges. The sink faucet was dented and rusty. The bath tub faucet was dripping and had an accumulation of mineral deposits on it and the tub looked like it had recently been stopped up and drained but not cleaned. There were no cups. The bed was so high I couldn't get into it without my husbands help and I am not a dwarf. The entire facility looked dirty and unkempt and just barely qualifies as shelter.
I rarely write reviews, but for this hotel I feel compelled. Hotels in Atchison are few and far between. I was in town to drop my daughter off at college and in the past we have stayed in Topeka because everything was booked, so I was happy to find a hotel with rooms and for such an affordable price. In the end, I should have remembered the saying “you get what you pay for”. I would have been better off staying out of town and driving into Atchison. This looks like an old Motel 6 or something that was purchased by a family and “renovated”. The main issue here is that the owners clearly need to pay attention to detail. To make this easy, here are the lists of issues that I encountered with my room: * Flies! The cleaning person must have propped the door open when they cleaned because there were numerous flies in the room. * The door jamb around the door was filthy and looked like it had never been wiped down. * Weather stripping was missing from the outside door, so you could see light thru the side of the door and feel a draft. This could have been a source of the flies too. * There was exposed wiring from an old outlet below the TV. Even if the outlet isn’t active, at least they could have put a cover over it. * The sink faucet handles were rusty and the surface of the sink had small cracks like you usually see in old sinks. * My daughter cracked the door open when she ran out to the car and a stray cat ran in. * The bathtub drain was slow, so I was taking a shower in 3 inches of water by the end. * One of the “clean” towels had hair on it. * The toilette was loose and it moved every time someone used it. * They cut part of the carpet and used it for molding, which is common in hotels, but they didn’t continue it into the bathroom so the molding is missing in some parts. * The furniture is made with plywood and painted black. Yes, I said made with plywood. * The bed comforter had a stain that looked like blood from a previous guest. * The room was poorly painted and they didn’t tape the edges or put down a drop cloth, so there is paint everywhere. Nor did they put a second coat on the areas where they covered the darker paint or molding around the door. * No cups or ice bucket. Who travels with their own cups? My suggestion, pay a little extra for one of the other hotels. If they are full, drive a little further and stay in St. Joseph or Topeka.
