    convenient location, beautiful spiritual greeting in the room with blessing for "Stranger within our gates", clean comfortable beds. Pleasantly surprised by microwave and large mini fridge in the room. Wonderfully quiet despite being next to the highway and even though the hotel was busy with guests, we were not disturbed by noise of anyone coming and going. Jenny at front desk was WONDERFUL checking us in!

    Tiny bathroom, outdated carpet snagging and pulling away from wall. TV in our room loose on the stand so it was wobbly and lopsided. Side door was supposed to lock for security, but 9 times our of 10, it didn't actually 'catch', and anyone could walk in without a guest room key. Free breakfast was all breads - biscuits and gravy, make your own waffles, muffins, bagels and cereals. No eggs or any breakfast meats, Nothing for anyone who can't eat bread or gluten. I chose this hotel in part for the breakfast, but ended up having to spend additional money for it elsewhere. Guy at front desk in the morning was rather rude about breakfast and about changing channel on TV. It is there for guests, but he didn't want to turn it from the news program he was watching.

    We liked the pool and hot tub. The friendly staff. Breakfast was good.

    We didn't like the fact it didn't have a plug for the bath tub. The pool didn't open until late cause of cleaning they should clean it before check in

    The first time we stayed here the bed was way to soft and we woke up sore the next day. When I reserved a room the second time we went up, I told them and they did the research, looked up our old room number and put us in a different room with a firmer, but still so comfortable bed. They never fussed or treated us like an inconvenience. Econolodge Wanamaker in Topeka will always be our go to hotel now. Plus it's just in a perfect spot. Right off the highway, with restaurants and the mall and shopping all right there.

    That I couldn't ever get up in time to enjoy their complimentary breakfast.

    Location

    Wasn't told breakfast was only available till 9am...arrived at 9:01 to a few sausage links floating in a serving dish. Staff's concern was "too bad"...really poor customer service. Won't stay again or use Booked.net. Experience was a total disappointment.

    Our reservation said King bed and we got a full. Some guy took a big drink out of the gallon milk jug in the fridge for breakfast. There was food and junk left in the fridge in our room from the previous stay. The staff was very rude when we checked in. I would NOT recommend this at all if traveling to Topeka.

  • 5.8

    The bed was decent. There was a small fridge and microwave.

    The room had a sour musty smell.

  • 8.2

    Pretty clean and it look like they were trying to make improvements for as old as what the place look like it was very difficult to find the driveway to get back to the hotel there was no sign on Wanamaker which was the address because it sat way back off the road

    Breakfast was not ready when we went down at 7:20 in the morning they did not have the pastries or the bagel sitting out the hot water did not work when I asked the employee about where to get hot water for my hot tea he said wait 15 minutes I waited 15 minutes nothing happened I just went back to my room and use the coffee pot for hot tea in the morning when I checked out the lady was very nice and explained that they been having troubles with it
