The property location is terrific downtown and has unique charm and warmth when you walk in the lobby. Both the restaurant and hotel are both ranked #1 in this town and I see why. The rooms are getting new carpet and update according to the staff in the coming weeks. I will be back as it is beautiful inside. So... More

My wife and I stayed at the Bothwell in late January of this year and were very satisfied with everything. The staff was very friendly, the room was super clean, and the food was good. This is a great hotel.

This hotel is right across from courthouse downtown Sedalia. Very friendly staff who upgraded my room. Rooms a little small but very clean and nice furniture. Restaurant not open on Sunday and the downtown is pretty slow. Fitness area small but fine .

I really wasn't sure what to expect from this hotel, but options are few in town and I was here for business. The location is wonderful, right in the heart of main street and the downtown Sedalia area. The lobby is full of historical information on the hotel and check in was quick and friendly. The hotel is definitely historic,... More

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience! We do have some smaller rooms, because we are a historic hotel. Back in 1927, the average traveler packed very light and didn't need the room that we like today. However, we have some other rooms available that offer a lot more space, and our suites are amazing!... More

My husband and I checked into a King size bedroom for Christmas while visiting family, and were just blown away. We love historic buildings, of which this is one (newspaper clipping on the wall states it was opened in 1927), but has modern features such as central heat and air, but still maintains the historic feel. Our check in desk... More

Enjoyed our stay in this stately old building! The feather topped mattress was the bomb and having space to roam was nice! We ate at the Ivory Grille and the food was great and the decor was truly a step back in time! The bathroom was a little cramped and shower small, but if we had wanted big and luxurious... More

I almost feel this review is cheating as we only live 30 minutes away, but sometimes it's worth it just to get away. Very charming, welcoming, and beautifully restored. If I had to find a fault, the rooms are fairly small, but when this place was built, they ALL were.

Shower is from the 1920s and it performed like it, scalding hot to ice cold several times. Small rooms and I had the nicer suite. Restaurant was supposed to the best in Sedalia, then they are in trouble. Bad tough food, old bread, waitress spilled wine all over us and the service was slow. NO PLACE to park your vehicle,...

We spent two nights in The Bothwell Hotel. It is a wonderful place to stay in Sedalia. The rooms are very well appointed and comfortable, with beds as soft as a cloud. Everything was clean and well maintained. The staff is expertly trained and made sure every need was immediately addressed. The hotel is charming, with a lot of history.... More
