We rented a room at the Crossland for a weekend in Independence that included the RLDS historic sites and a Chiefs game at Arrowhead. The Crossland is ideally situated for both. Overall we had a great experience and the hotel staff were above-and-beyond friendly and helpful. The only drawbacks were there was no fan in the bathroom (I'm old enough... More

We only needed a convenient place to sleep for a few hours after a Kansas City Chiefs game & this fit the bill. It was reasonably priced, conveniently located nearby major roads & a bevy of late night food locations (not to mention several gas stations & a grocery store) but most importantly, it was CLEAN. In fact, it was... More

This place is getting old. They offer basic kitchenettes. You need to bring everything - Coffee, sugar, ice. No breakfast is included. We stayed here 2 nights during a 2 week trip from New Mexico to Ohio.

On budget this is the place good for you. I booked on hotwire.com the hotel was reveal after I pay online... what a good deal! I notice shady people hanging outside not good! This is a outdated motel no flat screen TV. Good for single men or couples. Not for family with children.
