“Best Western Truman Inn; Independence, MO”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Great location and accessible to many good restaurants and entertainment venues. A good price and quality while not having to spend the cost of staying in a big city location. Rooms are clean and service is excellent. Was not an issue for me but it should be noted that a railroad track is just to the west of the hotel and Interstate 70 runs parallel to the south side of hotel. During warm weather, enjoy the Sheridan's Ice Cream right next to hotel.

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.

Very close to Kauffman Stadium and Truman library and museum the two places we wanted to visit. The room was clean and service outstanding. There was a good variety of options at breakfast. We would definitely stay there if we were in the area again.

Ball team wasn't used to a facility that was more like a motel (outside entrances to rooms) but this one looked nice and had a nice pool area. Room was fine with a very comfortable with a king-sized bed, although toilet and shower area were just a little small, but that was really no issue. Staff were very friendly. The only thing we brought up was having outside trash receptacles dumped more often.

I was more than a bit skeptical when I found out that my sons baseball team was staying at this hotel. I must say that after 4 nights this place really exceeded expectations. My room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. I couldn't quite get the AC adjusted right so we either froze or were hot at night, that wasn't good. The hotel staff from front desk to maintenance and housekeeping were all great. If you were not here with a sports team then the dozens of teenagers running around could be annoying. There was plenty of outdoor space though for the kids so I don't think they caused too much harm. The pool was adequate, no hot tub, but it was clean and relaxing. For a 1 or 2 star hotel, this place overall is not a bad place to stay.

This is your BASIC motel. The room is clean. Otherwise, lobby and exterior look fairly out dated/almost shabby. NO fitness center, no microwave for room. The woman at the desk was more than friendly and helpful. She is great.

Room Tip: I rated things as excellent and very good, even though I rated the hotel as average. We had stayed a...

Loved the fact that I could see route 70 from my room. Very easy on/off of 70. Recommend staying here for a baseball or football game (stadiums are right off 70 as well, and next to each other.) Older decor, but everything I needed was white (towels, sheets, bed covers), and appearewd clean. Maid service was excellent and quick. Breakfast was a struggle - too many people and noit enough seats. I went out after the first morning. Decent and clean, so I was happy.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for non-smoking rooms, because there are still rooms that people were smoking in.

Green Features: Not very good. Sign said if you place a towel on the floor they would replace it. I planned on re-using my towel, but each morning it was replaced. (stayed 3 nights)
