This property was clean. The room was clean. The service was good. It was kind of hard to find.

Our family stayed 4 nights at this hotel in June, 2013 while on vaction. The location is very convenint to I-70. We had a 2 queen room. The room had a musty smell when we entered but with the a/c running, it was a little better. The room was relatively clean and the beds pretty comfortable. The pillows could stand to be replaced. The complimentary breakfast was standard-waffles, pasteries, cereal, etc.
The staff we came in contact were friendly.
There is an outdoor pool, but we did not use it because the water was cold. There is a gas station kitty corner from the hotel which is convenint while traveling. This hotel is a short distance from the town square of Independence, the Truman sites and Kauffman & Arrowhead Stadiums (10 minutes away).
The price was right, it was relatively clean and near what we wanted to see and do.

My husband & I stayed one night here as we were traveling west & to attend a Royals game. The desk clerks were just super nice! They were very friendly when we checked in & gave us all the pertinent info. When we checked out the lady was extremely nice too!
We had a single queen room. It was fine. We slept well & it was quiet, even though several softball teams were staying in the hotel. The room had an older TV, but we didn't watch it much anyway. The bathroom looked like it had a new tile floor & the walls of the shower were granite, so the bath has been updated.
Breakfast was just ok. Nothing low fat or low sugar, so it would be nice if those types of items were considered. I think the breakfast was pretty typical of Super 8 though. The room had enough tables, maybe 7. There were 2 computers to use at the end of the breakfast room.
My only complaint is the wifi access. I was able to use it when we first arrived, late afternoon, but I wasn't ever able to get on again. I suspect there were lots of guests using it so there just wasn't enough bandwidth or something.
We didn't use the pool so can't comment on it.There are stairs, but not really many. A plus is that there is a Sheridan's custard next door. Yum!
It was clean, convenient, & the price was good, so I recommend it.

Poor interior condition, some odor was prevalent throughout the building.
The door was loose, it closed and locked, but there were gaps. My take is the owners do nothing about the interior condition of the building.

Dear Sean,
Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I am sorry you felt we do not care for the property from the inside. I take great pride to providing good clean rooms for our guests. We do realize that the rooms do need a few updates and we are working to upgrade the rooms. We are always updating the property to satisfy our guest. Six months ago we remodeled the breakfast area and updated the guest computers. And soon we are replacing the bedding.
Thanks again,
