I booked this place because I'm traveling Historic 66, and it was mentioned on one of the sites. It may once have been a cool place, but now it's just a boring, soulless, corporate hotel. The room was clean, of a good size, and everything worked fine, but it could have been a Quality Inn, Comfort Inn, Super 8...any of them. No personality to it whatsoever. I was looking for personality, so that was a disappointment. If all I'd wanted was a good night's sleep for a reasonable price, I would give it higher marks. I wanted history, though, so it was a disappointment. Another thing; Kansas has an unreasonably high sales tax - 9%. If you can arrange your day to stay in some other state, it's probably worth doing so. If, however, you're near the end of the day and want to explore the town, which is very nice, then it's a decent place to stay. Baxter Springs itself is well worth a visit. The 66 Visitor Center is an old restored gas station, and though it wasn't officially open, Dean "Crazy Legs" Walker (look him up) let me in, and it's well worth a visit, especially if he's on duty. The town also has a very nice museum that highlights the mining in the area, much of the local history, and has a great display of arrowheads, as well as a wall of bricks collected from all over the US. Also, along the main street, you'll see plaques on the buildings telling their history. There's a 50's style soda fountain that is now used as a learning center, so it's not open to the public, but you can look in it. It's beautiful. Lots of town pride in their history, and the people are some of the nicest I've ever met. I look forward to making this trip again some day and stopping in again.

Great Cheap rates, Highly recommended. The Rooms were excellent and very clean, you could have eaten off the floors.

It is probably because it is the only hotel in Baxter Spring, or this time of the year (winter), the hotel is a bit sloppy. The chairs look old. The shower fossett keeps dripping and makes noise throughout the night. The complimentary breakfast is extremely simple, with blueburry muffins & cinnamon roll, and orange juice. That's it. Do have to say that the gentleman at the front desk is very nice. But other than that, I don't think the $80/night is well worth it.

For what it cost, it was pretty substandard. My room was messy and had a general feeling of never being cleaned properly. The entire floor had a curry/Indian cooking smell which seemed to originate from the office/manager's quarters. Since it seemed this was the only place in town to stay, we had to put up with it. Next time I'm on Route 66, I'll stay in Joplin instead.
