This was just a one night stay on the way to see family in Kansas. We are not "fancy" travelers and did not visit the spa on site, so keep that in mind for this review. Highway 50 is so much more pleasant to drive than I-70 and Sedalia reminds my wife and I of our hometown. So we decided... More

Hotel Bothwell is perfect for a pampered weekend visit while in Sedalia. The lobby is beautiful. I waited for family members as they shopped downtown specialty stores. The room has a comfortable bed, and overlooks Ohio Street. (Clint Eastwood once road a horse on that street during a parade in 1959, when he was in the TV show "Rawhide".) There... More

Came back for a second time (last time was a year ago) and was just as wowed and amazed as the first time! I didn't have much time to spend, but was able to check in with the friendly desk clerk, I think who was named Ashley, enjoy all the beautifully decorated Christmas trees and gorgeous architecture, turn on the...

We went to Sedalia to visit the kids and grandkids and needed a pet friendly place to stay. We checked in to the Bothwell a majestic holiday place to stay the many Christmas trees and giant nutcrackers. Being away from home on Christmas Eve was turned into a special evening. Although the Oak room was closed and the Ivory Grill... More

Stayed for a little under a week and while I selected this location due to its quirkiness and affordability, it seems that the hotel is caught in between then and now and fails to do either spectacularly well. Built in 1927, much of the physical structure appears to be original from the paneled-over door headers (presume these used to be... More

This is a great historic hotel. In the lobby, in 1932, Harry Truman learned that he would be backed by Missouri's Democratic boss to run for the Senate. The hotel has modern amenities but feels historical and from an earlier time. The restaurant was excellent and inexpensive. My room was a bit small--but for $65--it was more than adequate. Others...

Unique hotel! Beautiful Latina receptionist informed me about the history of the hotel, enjoyed the cool mail box they have, and old Pay Phones, she also directed me to the nearest restaurant since the one inside was closed, bed extra comfy, will return again.

Awesome "old" hotel! An experience that anyone that appreciates the past will love. Would suggest to all going through the area. The staff where extremely friendly and helpful. We will use this location again in the future.

This quaint old hotel sits in the center of downtown. It's within walking distance of my destination so location was perfect. Remember it's an old hotel but they've done a wonderful job making the most of the space available. Bed was just right and it is a very quiet location. The front desk could not have been more welcoming and... More

Hotel Bothwell has done a nice remodel keeping old charm with new comforts, including the bedding. THE most comfortable bed I can remember in a hotel of this price range. Good location for what I had to do with easy access to two major highways.
