We had to stay here due to the other hotel booking up, the beds were comfortable and their towels were nice and clean. Bob the manager didn't want to give you more than a few towels for the pool because he didn't have many (they didn't want you using the room towels) they were regular towels too, not like what...

Stayed the night just to get off of the road. Upon arrival, I checked in over at the Lamarti's gas station across the street (Some nights they run the reservations after 4 pm) and was very impressed with how the staff even there treats you. Taylor was very well mannered and helped me to get checked in efficiently and effortlessly.... More

At the Blue Top Inn you will find a flat screen TV fridge microwave and a comfortable bed. My room was clean and if you have a CDL you get a cheaper rate. The purchase of a room gets a free breakfast at Denny's across the street. There is also a truck stop and Walmart off the same exit. I... More

This is my second stay at the Blue Top. I stayed in a regular room this trip. My room was clean and the area outside of my room was clean. The bed was comfortable. The A/C was quiet and worked very well. The room had a fridge, microwave and coffee. The bath had a counter and the larger bars of... More

We stayed at the Blue Top Inn on June 25th. We needed a place to stay while visiting our daughter, who lives in Lamar. We thought it would be a nice clean place to stay. Boy were we mistaken! There was mold in the shower. A bug smashed on the wall. Dirt on the rail to hold your clothes and... More

O happy day! Stayed here years ago and WOW the remodeling has made a dramatic difference. New life has been breathed into what used to be a dark & dreary "seen better days" motel. The rooms have been freshly repainted. Flat screen TV with built-in DVD player, free wifi with great signal strength, mini fridge & micro. We always seek... More

We stayed there over the Fourth of July weekend, 2012. It was a nice enough travel motel, but they have no idea what true 5-star service and quality is. It was just a motel room; nice enough, but not anything 5-star about it.

We stayed here in June 2012. We were in the area for a State Baseball Tournament. We had 13 rooms booked. I can not tell you how incredibly friendly the staff was to our team. They were flexible and on top of every request any of us had. They even checked in with us after each game to see how... More

I rolled into Lamar after making a morning trip to Joplin. While eating a late lunch I decided it was too hot to be on the road. I got the last room available and was not disappointed. I got the Admirals room. The room was very clean. The bed was as comfortable as my sleep number. The towels are big... More
