We spent Sunday night (8/31) here. The room was clean. The bed was comfortable. The plumbing, lighting, AC and TV all worked as they should. The property was close to the freeway, food and shopping. If I have a need to overnight in the area in the future, this property will be my first choice.

Stayed here one night. It is an older hotel but the rooms have been updated. Good location right off I-70. Only complaint is the bathroom is tiny and the towels could be better. Staff was all friendly. We would likely stay here again if we were traveling through.

Stayed here for 3 days of KC ball. Newly renovated, clean, close to interstate (and thereby access to everywhere). Staff were VERY friendly and helpful. Included breakfast had everything you needed to get you started. Nice to be able to park right at your door. Pool clean, and empty (nobody else in it). If your looking for a clean, affordable...

Checked in after a long hot drive across Kansas, friendly reception, and found a clean room and bathroom. Was able to park immediately in front of room. Quiet room and restful night. Adequate breakfast, easy access to Truman sites. Used coupon that help make stay a good value for price. Would stay here again.

We stayed here last evening and had an excellent experience! It is easy to reach from the interstate, but quiet. All rooms have been very recently renovated, with excellent beds and a wonderful shower. The grounds were clean and well-kept, and the pool seemed very inviting!

We stayed here on 8/20 when we were visiting the Truman Library. The motel is easy to find, it has a nice exterior and the check in staff was great. The room was clean and very quiet. The bathroom is small. My wife found the Glade plug in smell overpowering (and quickly unplugged it) but it was Ok to me.... More

Beautiful motel for the money. Total quiet, very clean, loved the mattress - sleep was heavenly, decor very nice. Employees were very helpful, showing us upon check-in where the Continental breakfast could be found. Breakfast was very nice, you could make your own pancakes, fruit, yogart, sausage gravy and biscuits, bagels, and various other cereals that mix with hot water... More

This Best Western is located right off of the interstate, it is a great location. It is an outside room hotel, but dont let that deter you, because it is safe and it is clean and comfortable. The staff was pleasant when we checked in and out. The breakfast was decent, quick and a good option to get us off... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. After driving 11 hours to find hot chocolate chip cookies in the lobby at check in was such a nice touch. We also used the fitness center- nice to have after sitting for so many hours. Beds were very comfortable. Great job Best Western!

We travel for the funeral of my sister and found comfort in knowing that the staff of Best Western cared as much about our lost as we did. Their expression of kindness and concern made us feel the warmth of an extended family.
