The rooms are not large, but they are well appointed and our bed was comfortable. We liked being in the old city area and were able to walk to everything we wanted to see. The staff members...

I thoroughly enjoy my stay at the Best Western Independence every time I travel for business. The staff is friendly and courteous and the room is clean and comfortable. There are cookies set out every night for the guests to enjoy and there is a wine and cheese happy hour on Wednesday evenings.
