Booked online mobile due to reviews, checked in moments later - great room on second floor! Clean & well decorated! Shower needs "dam" on tub to keep water from floor. Awesome breakfast & attentive staff - the best in ten days on the road! Building outside needs paint, repairs, & upgrades..

This is an older motel, two stories with no elevator, but rooms, while small, seem well kept. Bathroom is teeny but has a nice grab bar. The bed is very comfortable. The air conditioning system didn't seem to work very well at removing humidity from the room. Bedding was nice although the lighting was somewhat dim. Very nice to have... More

Very convenient location just off the highway. The room was spacious and clean. The breakfast was good with a pancake maker as opposed to the horrible waffle maker. The front desk staff were friendly. A decent Best Western.

Very friendly and helpful staff, nice clean rooms. We just spent one evening there, checked in very late and the desk clerk was very courteous and gave directions to a great pizza joint. I would recommend this place for the value and overall cleanliness. Now I am just adding fluff to get to 200 characters

Great place to stay, clean, good breakfast (full) nice people and convenient location for both KC Stadiums and the Truman Museum. Older property but very well done and you can park by your door which I like. Friendly staff from the desk to the maids and breakfast servers.

This was a great place to stay for just an overnight visit to KC. We were in town for a football game and were able to get a taxi from the hotel to the gate for $13. It is a little ways from actual KC but not far from the stadiums. Had a great breakfast and very attentive staff. We... More

Given the strong reviews, I was expecting better, so was disappointed, but overall felt that it was an OK experience. The staff were all uniformly very nice and accommodating, and the breakfast had a decent variety and was good (cereals, instant oatmeal, eggs (scrambled and hard boiled), sausage, variety of breads + muffins/biscuits (with gravy available), pancake maker, yogurt, juices....

The hotel itself is pretty nice, but after driving all day I wanted to walk a bit. The Hotel is on busy street with no crosswalks or signal nearby so it was challenging to reach the restaurants and stores that were just across the street.
