The first room we checked into smelled horrible. I still can't figure out what it was. The staff was very helpful with getting us another room. It was better but had a moldy mildew smell. We are only staying a few hours so we will tough it out. The beds are comfortable. Another family member has a room across the...

The hotel was on the main road but still maintained a nice quiet atmosphere. The room was clean and everyday the staff came in a maintained the cleanliness. Breakfast was good and the assortment was nice. The desk staff were knowledgeable about the activities and attractions in Topeka. Couldn't ask for much more

I was attracted by the rate, but the recent reviews were decent too, so I checked it out. The greeting was welcoming, the bed clean and comfortable. It is located close to the 470 bypass, but there was no noise problem. Besides it is close to the Mall and lots of other shopping and eating sites. I will stay there...

Nothing fancy, but clean, quiet, extremely friendly staff. Close to restaurants. Good breakfast. Pleasant, economic stop. There's not much to Topeka...this was a convenience stop for us. The staff, location, and price were just right.

The hotel has recently changed management and now offers excellent value for money. The room was big and clean as was the pool and spa facilities. The management and staff could not of been more helpful and even let us do some washing. We have travelled 16000 miles in 4months and this is by far one of the best hotels...

This hotel recently changed a name to Econo Lodge & so is a new ownership & management. The rooms are big & clean. They have huge breakfast area & they serve hot breakfast which is pretty rare for a econo lodge. We enjoyed their indoor pool/spa. This is probably a best econo lodge property within miles & miles.

My husband, 18 month old daughter, and I stayed in a king room for a week and the price was $364.00. This was very cheap compared to many other hotels we checked.
