“Great Best Western”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

So the location is a lil 'far' from the excitement/ like Downtown(bout 15mins).. but there are two gas stations{one has amazing pizza/calzones] and several eateries around the area. Easy on & off highway...

The room was nice. Bed super comfy!! Was given extra towels as requested. We had a king suite with jacuzzi... & it didnt work.. called the maintenece & within a few mins it was working.

Has a small gym, and pool-we didnt use because a family of like 30 seems to think they were @ home...with kids running naked in pool area.

The Breakfast was complemetary- good variety of waffles, cereals, juices, bagles, ect... they kept up with making sure nothing was running low.

Overall, would definately stay here again. Prices was great. Location was too. & room was worth it.

Room Tip: Get a jacuzzi suite if you can! :)

Room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable! However the breakfast was terrible. The biscuits were very hard and the gravy was lukewarm. The breakfast dining area was small. Good place to stay if you have flight out the next day.

Stayed here to attend a wedding over Labor Day weekend. Arrived during a heavy downpour from Hurricane Isaac. Weather related noise was non-existent but noise from other guests in the hallway was a little less insulated. Overall cleanliness of common areas and the room were very good. The staff went beyond expectations to be helpful: directions and brochure to Zona Rosa shopping village with multiple dining options less than 2 miles away, offered to drive us to a store in the shuttle to pick up a Sunday paper, moved heaven and earth to allow us to print our boarding passes when printers malfunctioned in the office center. The wedding website suggested Best Western in Platte City but after consulting Trip Advisor we decided to stay here. In July when we booked KCI East was ranked 2nd on the TA site. The rates for two nights were cheaper, the room had a fridge, coffeemaker and microwave and, based on feedback from guests in Platte City, we had a much more comfortable, relaxing and restful stay. Tip: Bo Lings in Zona Rosa served a great beef & brocolli and mushoo pork and the glass of plum wine was generous. Order the 6 pack of almond cookies ($6) take the leftovers back to the room, make orange pekoe cups of tea from the breakfast area (24/7) and you will have a darn good lunch on rainy day. If you park at the meters in Zona Rosa be sure and feed them. Parking enforcement is unrelenting...even in hurricane conditions.

Just got home from my vacation stay here. And this hotel was WONDERFUL!!!!!!! I read some reviews before going and the hotel was nothing like what was said. Our room was perfect and clean, the beds were very comfortable, and all the staff was NICE. The breakfast and the location was good. Never once had a complaint. If I were to return I would totally stay here.

I had stayed at this hotel in April '12 with a good experience then, so stayed again. The only change is with the pillows. Back in April they offered soft and medium pillows w/ 'soft' and 'medium' embroidered on the pillowcases. This has been discontinued--only soft pillows now. However, I again enjoyed the graet breakfast, 'clean' remote to TV, LG TV w/great picture, comfortable bed, refrigerator and microwave in room, great location w/proximity to the airport and Zon Rosa Shopping Plaza and the helpful staff! I will continue to stay when I am in the area.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great!

Stayed the night on 29 Aug. Clean, clean rooms. Best night sleep. Awesome variety for breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. Stayed at Hilton across the street 2 weeks before. No comparison. This was the best. 5 Stars

This was my second time staying at this Best Western this year and I am always pleased. The beds are beyond comfortable and the rooms are always clean. The breakfast has a wide variety of things. There is something for everyone. It is very quiet, even when there are kids staying there at the same time. The front desk staff is quick and helpful.

If you are coming from the airport, it would probably take you 5 minutes at most to arrive. Downtown Kansas City is only 15 minutes down the road. Easy directions to Leavenworth as well. They have an indoor pool and hot tub with an outside patio available.

I haven't had an issue yet and I fully recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Didn't hear a peep on the 3rd floor!
