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.

I was very impressed with the amenities this hotel provided along with a very comfortable bed. My room faced the highway which I thought was going to be a problem with noise of traffic. Didn't hear any of it. Worth staying here.

This hotel is easy to get to. Very close to the highway. In walking distance QT and an ice cream shop. Staff very friendly. The beds were comfortable and the room was cold. I love a cold room. Room was very clean.

We stopped in one night while passing through. It was a convenient location and easy to find. The rooms had been updated. A little small but the furnishings were fine. The desk clerk was training and trying hard. The closest ice machine to our room had standing water around it which made it inaccessible.

I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed the majority of your stay though I apologize for the inconvenience that you experienced with the ice machine. I do thank you for sharing your review and perception of our hotel. We hope you'll return soon! More

At first glance from the road, the hotel looks a little worse for wear. It shares 3 parking lots and seems crowded. Take a second look and sign in! The desk help on duty was Miranda. She is wonderful with a bright smile, a clear focus to accomplish her task, and the ability to multitask like answering questions when doing... More

The lady at the front desk was very rude and unprofessional. There's too many other good hotels to choose from to not have to put up with rude service. When we checked in the lady never smiled and barely acknowledged us. Plus when I asked for two extra pillows our first night, she told me there were two in the... More
