Located right next to the Interstate. I figured we would hear the traffic all night long. Our room was closest to the highway and we did not hear a sound. Very nice exterior and the rooms are spotless! The bathroom was really too small to change your mind in, but there was ample space in the room. I would not... More

This property has clean, efficient rooms with microwave ovens, refrigerators, comfortable beds, and even pillows that provided head support! What more could you want at a facility that is also reasonably priced??

I will never stay here again!! I stayed here 3 nights over Labor Day and it was not a good experience. When I checked in, Jo at the front desk said 3 curse words to me as I was waiting for my keys. My room was a non-smoking room that reeked of cigarette smoke. The highway noise from I-70 was... More

We were in town for the Irish dance competition being held downtown and this was our first time at this hotel. Upon arrival, the young lady at the front desk was very pleasant. We stayed in room 208 for two nights, and the only reason I mention this is because of the ac unit. The room was nice and clean,... More

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.

So when I first walked in I was super shocked at how nicely remodeled the hotel was. Usually I Best Western and don't think too much of it. But this trip made me want to consider staying at one every time I go out of town. The bed was super comfortable and it was nice having a room with a... More

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.

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.
