Woodstock Inn Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 6 Independence B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 20, 2012

While most people had an amazing time at this Inn, my husband and I left with rather different feelings. We stayed in the Scandinavian Room, which really should be converted to an open reading room or closet. We felt like we were staying with a relative in the kid's room, which is unfortunate when paying $125/night. It seemed like some of the other rooms were a bit roomier and nicer for the same price so maybe it was our tough luck.

Regarding the Inn as a whole, the common area was nice but felt dirty and cluttered, and again, like we were staying with a relative who wasn't in the mood to clean the place up. There wasn't really a nice place for us to feel like we were relaxing on a romantic weekend so we didn't spend much time there. The breakfast was good the first day, a bit on the heavy side, and then disappointing when we were served pretty much the same thing the next day. Fatal mistake when running a b&b. You can't serve the same dishes on Saturday AND Sunday - especially Sat & Sun.! The main carb was different but all of the sides were the same and reheated in the microwave. I was disappointed that I didn't skip breakfast and eat at the local coffee shop in Independence.

Pam was very sweet but seemed chained to the premises and very unhappy. We felt bad for her situation, instead of enjoying our weekend away. I know that this is going to come off as selfish and insensitive, but it's hard to be on vacation and then listen to the person who's hosting you complain about the burdens of running the place where you paid money to stay. I put this fault on the owner, who obviously isn't taking good care of her innkeeper.

I would not recommend this Inn to a friend. Next time we visit KC, we might have to splurge a little more to find a quality stay. Sorry for the negativity but I want others to know what they're walking into when considering a romantic weekend away with their spouse or loved one.

I've been with my wife Susan in B&B Woodstock, and really we have had a very good time there. Nice place, nice location, the room was clean and nice and a very relaxing atmosphere. We absolutely suggest to go there.

Room Tip: The English Room - Luxory Qeen Spa is perfect for a couple!

My husband and I went away to Independence for a getaway. We arrived Friday evening and stayed in the Italian Suite through Sunday morning. Love the bubbling tub for two! We were treated to a large sit-down style breakfast that was delicious and different each morning. There was an Italian themed dinner one evening that included a slide presentation and music. How unique and fun for us! Kim and Pam were wonderful hosts.

This is a charming inn not far from The Square in old downtown Independence. The Inn and rooms have a times-past charm with lots of personality. The innkeeper, Pam, is wonderful -- friendly, accomodating (even for special dietary needs), and breakfasts are delicious! She makes cookies some evenings. We had the Scottish room, comfortable queen bed, a sitting area, small shower. Guests can open windows or use the heat/cool unit each room has. Ample parking off road. Flowering trees were in bloom during our visit -- beautiful!

We had dinner at Cafe Verona, which Pam recommended, and it was superb. Lovely atmosphere, good food, excellent wait staff. The Square has numerous shops and eateries and a 4-plex movie theatre. We also had a meal at the famous Gates BBQ, and it's a crazy busy place with good food. Kindly wait staff, always busy at the order counter.

There is a riverfront in Kansas City nearby where a market is held on weekends. We didn't get to that, but someone told us there is fresh produce, food, crafts, art and more. In the general area are good flea markets and antique stores, especially east of Independence.

Room Tip: The Scottish room is relatively spacious with a queen bed and sitting area. Small shower. Good loc...

My husband and I recently spent two nights in The Italian Suite. Our stay was very nice. The Inn is under new ownership. The Woodstock Inn B & B is located near the downtown square and it provides a nice size parking lot that is located off of the main road. The Italian Suite is located on the first floor. It has a 2 person jacuzzi tub in a separate room near a large fireplace. The suite also has a king size bed with a separate bathroom that includes both a tub and a shower. Pam was very friendly and helpful during our stay. The breakfasts and snacks were yummy. She was very good about accommodating food restrictions. We were very pleased with our stay and highly recommend this place to others.

Our spa rooms the Italian, French Riviera and the English are our most popular rooms for a romantic get away. Because of the deep rich colors of the Italian and the spa tub and fireplace it tends to be one of our most popular rooms. The French Riviera has more space and has cooler colors in lite blues and whites and is wonderful for a romantic get away. Our English room is cozy in navy blues and whites and is defiantly in an English style the 2 person jetted tub just adds to the quaintness and romantic style of the room.
We are excited that you had such a great time at the Inn and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Woodstock Inn this week. We stayed for two nights in the Bridal/Honeymoon Suite and loved it. We enjoyed having a separate living area and bedroom area. The king size bed was sooo comfortable. The rooms were clean and nicely furnished and the breakfasts were delicious. We would love to stay again when we are in that area. Thanks.
