This hotel exceeded my expectations. It is right across the street from the Harry Truman house and down the road from the museum. The building might have been built for some other use than a hotel - and the entrance and office are a bit funky. But the room was huge and very clean. The beds were very, very comfortable as was the covers and pillows (and I am very picky). We had a very quiet and restful night. The complimentary breakfast was at our leisure, again very clean area - and good, but basic food: lots of fruit, yogurt, bagels, english muffins, cereals and coffee. Also, great in room coffee. This looked to be one of the few hotels right in the "Truman" area of Independence. We were pleasantly surprised by our stay. Staff was also very nice and helpful.
