A Family Business

Guests gather for an event at the first hotel the Drury family opened. The first hotel was in southern Missouri in 1973, and now the family has built, owns and operates more than 150 hotels in 25 states.

 

100% Family Owned & Operated

My father and uncles built the first Drury Inn with one goal in mind – to provide our guests with clean rooms, friendly service and honest value. More than 40 years later, the goal remains the same for our family-owned and operated hotel chain. That’s why recognition by J.D. Power as “Highest in Guest Satisfaction among Upper Midscale Hotel Chains” means so much. On behalf of our extended Drury family of more than 5,000 team members, I would like to offer my sincere thanks to you for sharing this honor with us.

We truly appreciate your business and will work hard to continue to earn your loyalty.

Our History

Our History

Quality. Value. Consistency. These principles have guided Drury Hotels since 1973, when the Drury brothers opened the first Drury-brand hotel in Sikeston, Missouri.

The Drury brothers grew up in Kelso, a small town in the boot heel of Missouri. Learning from their hard-working and dedicated father, Lambert, they started by doing local ornamental and plastering work. First some tile jobs, then some small construction jobs. They always focused on quality, service, innovation and value.

Their work ethic and determination made their reputation grow – which, in turn, helped turn a venture into a business, and they began working on service stations, churches ... and then hotels. Since then, the Drury family has created a hotel system known for customer service and satisfaction – from a simple friendly smile, to free hot breakfast, to free hot food and cold beverages at the 5:30 Kickback®, to free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel – the Drury brothers learned to give their guests more than expected. The Extras Aren’t Extra®.

From a few Drury brothers in the boot heel of Missouri to a company with more than 150 hotels in 25 states, Drury Hotels takes great pride in welcoming our guests just like we do our own family.
