Hotel Information

There are numerous hotels in the area of the Olathe Indian Creek Library throughout Johnson County. We understand that everyone has an individual preference when it comes to hotel chains. We found that blocking rooms actually increased room rates versus rates individuals can get through sites such as Travelocity, Priceline or through memberships such as Sam’s Club and Costco. There are also special discounts at Veterans Rates, AAA, and through other programs.
