I pulled in at 1 am to check in. Looking around, I saw pawn shops, jails, court buildings, the front door was locked...I thought I made a huge mistake. (Blame my pre-judging on growing up in a major metropolitan city. When I went to my room, I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel was clean, room was well arranged, and staff... More

Great clean corner room after a long day biking on the KTY Rail Trail. Nice furnishings. Wonderful small town charm. Modern elevator. Bathroom was a little dated but serviceable. Good breakfast came with our groups stay, Definitely a unique experience, You can picture Harry Truman staying here.

A dated nostalgic trip to the grand hotel days. Best city location on the downtown square. Original everything including the plumbing, elevator, and service. I prefer a firm bed and theirsThe bed was one of the softest I have ever slept on

Charming, historic and comfortable. Bed was great and the room very clean with great views of downtown. Although just passing through Sedalia on business, we were won over. Some room and bathroom features were not state of the art, but that didn't dim our stay in the least. This is not a cookie cutter hotel. If you appreciate great hospitality... More

Hotel Bothwell is in the heart of Sedalia, with all the charm of the last 100 years. The ambiance is yester-year. Old paintings, old furniture, a return to the good times of the past. Therein lies the appeal--and the problems. While the rooms are very nice, they are also very tight. No counter space in the bath. Old fixtures (like... More

Small but cozy. The tall ceiling and window helps it not feel closed in. Bed was like sleeping on a cloud or grandma's feather bed. (Could use a little more support in middle underneath.) Because it's an hotel built in the 1920's, better construction, the rooms are quiet...no sounds from the neighboring rooms. Room was clean and staff was friendly.

Very accommodating staff, pleasant room, convenient to Missouri Runner train station. Beautiful old hotel in downtown Sedalia. Beds were incredibly soft and the linens were top-notch, making for a wonderful night's sleep. The only breakfast was coffee and muffins, which disappointed us until we tasted the superb muffins!!

Step back in time with a clean nice hotel experience. It felt elegantly charming. Nice friendly front desk. Close to the Katy Trail. Clean. Bed is a bit soft for me. But it's hard to find anything else that I did not find peacefully perfect. I would stay here again.

I had a chance to pick where our family got to stay while in Sedalia. I chose the Hotel Bothwell and our stay was wonderful. We did not want a typical chain hotel. When we walked into the lobby, we stepped back in time. We had a King room that had a bath and a half, the bed was comfortable,... More

I had one of the smaller rooms. It was very clean and well decorated for the era of the building. Daily housekeeping was well done. The room is not actually that small, but it is just the way it is set up, being that it is from another time period, that was not the most convenient or modern. However, the... More
