    Pillows were like basketballs with no alternatives. We could not use them at all. Bed was extremely hard. Our room was at the top of the stairs with the lobby at the bottom. A large group had a loud party in the lobby until 4am. The second night the same group partied until 2am-- I guess they were tired from the first night party. Overall we did not have a good stay.

    My first stay at an Americinn. I was very surprised -- since it's not as well known as other chains, I was a bit apprehensive. Definitely will add this chain on my "watch" list.

    Not conveniently located. And, depending on how long you've been on the road (coupled with Google Maps leaving out a key street), you have to be mentally alert. Nevertheless -- this place was worth the search!

    The staff was very friendly and attentive. Room was quiet and clean

    The furnishings are clean but dated. Could use a little freshening.

    We were traveling through the area on vacation. The location was very convenient, being right off the interstate. The hotel is in a large retail area with many stores and restaurants to choose from if you need them. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was adequate. The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. Overall a good value for the money. I would stay here again.

    Affordable rate. Location near shopping and restaurants. Hotel lobby area & tv nice.

    Hotel staff smoking frequently at front entrance. Electrical outlet in bathroom did not work. Room carpeting needs cleaned or replaced.

    We weren't expecting much because the price was "too good" but we were pleasantly surprised. The place was clean-including the pool and hot tub, the staff friendly and very helpful, the breakfast plentiful. The location was great. We would definitely stay there again.

    We were traveling from Illinois to Colorado and we wanted to drive as far as we could. When we decided to stop in Topeka my husband went to the internet and booked the inn. The front end person was sort of cross stating first that she had no reservation for us ( it had just been made and was on the fax machine) then statingthe price was the same from the internet as it would have been if we just walked in. Price is important, however knowing we had a safe place to stop was equally important this day. The breakfast was good. But the lower level was really hot and humid due to the pool

    I thought the hotel was clean and adequate to our needs! The price was right!

    It was a little hard to find. Kind of caught between 2 other hotels, so it was a little difficult to figure out how to get to it.

    The staff was very friendly and helpful. Choices for breakfast were great.

    There was a peculiar smell in our room the whole time we were there and our door keycard would never work. We had to ask the staff at the desk to come and open our door every time. That was very frustrating. We should have been offered another room.

    Room was clean, nice looking lobby/breakfast area, easy access to interstate

    lumpy mattresses, pillows too thick

  • Group of friends

    Close to the areas I was going. The staff was helpful, changed the room for another without argument or show of annoyance. Also got extra towels when ask, agin in a friendly, helpful manner. Staff was great, rooms not so much.

    On arrival my reservation for room with 2 queen beds had been changed to 1 king. When correction made the room smelled strongly of smoke & had a musky, moldy odor. We were then upgraded to another room, it also had a musty odor, it was in november but we left the window opened most of the night to reduce the odor. Rooms have seen better days & are in need of repair.
