We were quite looking forward to visiting Sedalia as it happened to coincide with a Scott Joplin musical festival. It turned out that the Hotel Bothell was a perfect location and an exceptional hotel. The hotel has been restored without loosing much of it's charm and character. On the ground floor is a nice lobby plus a bar area and... More

We spent a wonderful night at this beautiful Old Hotel.They did a remarkable job. The lobby is small but luxurious. The staff was friendly and the beds were comfortable. I would highly recommend this hotel, but please remember that this was an old hotel.

I was here September 2014 for a business trip. From the moment I stepped in the doors and was greeted by the friendly staff and the beautiful step back in time decor, every moment at Hotel Bothwell was a delight. The beds were extremely comfy. (I did suggest to the front desk staff they get some better pillows). The deep... More

beautiful room, great people, wonderful restaurant, great bar. Parking is horrible, location is ok, we stayed two nights, we were gone at 7:30am until 2;30pm, had not cleaned are room. A little after 3 they came to clean, but we were taking a nap. Just thought the room should've been cleaned sooner, especially since they ask for tips for housekeeping.

We spent a night here while on a short mid Missouri road trip. The room was huge and had a separate little dressing room. Marble shower, two deliciously soft and comfortable queen size beds, as well as a flat screen TV. Coffee was available, as well as tea, which we enjoyed as most hotels don't offer that in the room.... More

I characterized this hotel as quaint since historical restoration was not available. From the outside one would never guess what a jewel this hotel is inside. It is located in the historical district of Sedalia, and it is beautifully restored and furnished--a feast for the eyes. We were traveling the Katy Trail by bicycle and needed overnight accommodations. The day... More

From check in it was a disaster. The front desk clerk Alma didn't even tell us or room number just its floor five. It wasn't even written on the key card envelope. It's classy looking. But there's not catered to guests. The restaurant is closed on Sunday. We asked about breakfast and the front desk clerk said there's muffins and... More

Overall I had a good experience at the Hotel Bothwell. I stayed here with my two kids while riding on the Katy Trail 2015 ride and opted out of the "official" Sedalia hotel of the Truman Econo Lodge given I had stayed there twice before on previous Katy Trail rides and both times found that hotel to be over priced...

My dad and I stay here every year while coming through Sedalia on the Katy Trail. This hotel has a lot of character and friendly staff. They are very accomodating and will store your bike for you. Location is good as well (not too far from Katy Trail and close to a few restaurants).

Take a step back in time. This beautiful hotel has a rich 85+ year history that you can read about and see in various displays throughout the building. On the National Register of Historic Places. Very pleased with service, and coffee and muffins in the morning were an unexpected treat.
