We had a King room. It was roomy, clean, and the bed was comfortable. They served a very good, hot breakfast. There was no freezer in the small refrigerator, but the staff froze the blue ice we needed for meds and it froze well overnight. We would stay at this BW again.

This Best Western is very clean and the people are very helpful. Room and bed were wonderful - great night's sleep. When checking in we needed directions to the Event Center and the front desk was very helpful.

The rooms are nice and updated. They were in the process of updating the outside, looked nice. Bathrooms are small, but clean. One complaint my boyfriend had was that he was cold during the night. On the bed was just two sheets and a thin comforter. Maybe put an extra blanket in the drawers? Or bring one from home. Breakfast... More

We will never stay at this Best Western ever again. We were attending an event at the Eastland Event Center and was recommended your location. Lets start with the big things like safety. With all the illegal activity , that your personal working at the front desk confirmed, caused us to fell very unsafe. We called the police several times.... More

Very comfortable and convenient. Maintenance and cleanliness of rooms was excellent. Bathrooms are very small, but okay. Staff was great. I will book directly with the hotel next time and NOT go through Expedia.

This motel had great location to the interstate which aided our travel to the Independence Events Center. The staff in the kitchen was very nice. The extension of our stay seemed to be somewhat difficult for the desk staff. We had a great ground floor room; did not experience issues with noise, and really liked this motel. One thing that...

Traveling thru and needed an easy access to interstate. This hotel fit the bill perfectly. Spotlessly clean thruout the building. Staff was very pleasant and nice. They allowed pets ($10) which is a big plus for us. Grass close by for dog walking. Very nicely decorated room with fridge and microwave. Free, fast wifi. Very reasonable pricing too. We travel...

This hotel is easy to access from the interstate and close to the Truman Presidential Museum/Library and other Truman sites. The hotel was clean, updated, and friendly, helpful staff. Breakfast was the usual hotel breakfast fare.

Stayed here for business and found this recently updated Best Western to meet my needs well. Clean inexpensive and friendly staff made my stay great. The free breakfast is better than most Best Westerns I've stayed at. Also the motel is conveniently located right off the highway.
