4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were on a 14 day automobile trip and this was one of the nicer hotels that we stayed in. The breakfast was good and it was the first hotel that we have been to that had an automatic pancake machine. It was easy access on and off of the freeway I-70. We will recommend it to our friends.

This is clearly an older, dated hotel in a good location right I70 on Noland Rd, a main route to all of the Independence attractions. The staff is very courteous, helpful and pleasant. The breakfast had a good variety and was replenished often. The rooms are small, older and the bathrooms are as well. The beds are not the best... More

We incidentally decided to stay at Best Western using Trip Advisor for reference as we took our second ever road trip to nowhere specific. We rented a car with Enterprise for two weeks and hit the road. Wherever the car pointed is where we went. It has been amazing and thanks to Best Western's standards and quality, we have had...

We have stayed at this place before and it was just OK. They have really gone all out and renovated it . The lobby is beautiful and the room was comfortable and quiet. Bed was great and the entire place was super clean. The staff was all very nice and we had a really good breakfast the next morning. I... More

The young lady at the front desk was so friendly at check-in, and helpful, She made sure we got a ground floor room to accommodate our labra-doodle traveling companion. Also, gave us directions to nearby restaurants.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Best Western Truman Inn in Independence. Staff was friendly. Room was ok. It was cheap and we got to listen to some woman banging on one of the doors and arguing with her boyfriend/husband at about 10:30 P.M., so that was some free entertainment. Luckily this only lasted about a half hour.... More

The quality and comfort of the room and its amenities were exceptional. However, we received poor information when I called to see if the parking lot could accommodate all our vehicles. We were moving with 3 UHaul vans, a full-size pickup truck, and an SUV, all pulling car trailers. I explained this when I called, and the woman assured me... More

Nice. Not special. Rooms all have outside doors. 2 story, old style motel. Pool is outdoors. Service at front desk was excellent with help for dinner recommendations and directions to Truman library. Gave us a 2 for 1 coupon for library. Breakfast was well staffed and what one would expect from this type of place. Hot eggs, sausage, pancakes and... More

This is a lovely hotel, more than adequate for our needs, and very close to all the Truman sites, which were spectacular. Staff was all very friendly, breakfast was good, with eggs, sausage and biscuits with gravy, etc., and my husband loved the coffee (and he NEVER likes hotel coffee!!!) Bathrooms are very small, so if you are a plus-size... More
