Upon our trip home from Ohio to Oregon, after a brief stay over in Louisville, KY. My wife and I drove to Independence, MO. this Best Western reminds me of the old motels I used to stay at while traveling as a child with my parents. All room have outside access and parking right outside the door. Room was nice, however I do have to say the "red" shower was somewhat a surprise. We did not use the pool, however it looked really nice. Although the motel is right next to I-70 you could not hear the trucks as they pass thru. The breakfast in the morning was very good. Breakfast burittos, fresh fruit, pastries, pancakes, cereal, milk, juice,coffee & teas, Motel staff nice and helpful. I would recommend for all travelers.
