Small out dated hotel. Blankets had stains. It reminded me of an old hospital converted into a bed and breakfast. No iron in the room.

Super clean, very nice, comfortable place to stay

Posted Sep 19, 2016
Though I have stayed in more high-end places it's possible I have never stayed in a hotel that was more clean and well kept. It was immaculate! I believe the owners are also the ones who oversee the day to day operations, so it's obvious they put a great deal of care into their business, and they do their best to make you feel at home. The hotel is right across the street from Harry Truman's house and along the street of many other historic homes. I would gladly stay here again! If you're a little more adventurous, it's just a little longer walk to the Truman museum and presidential library or downtown Independence.

A Quiet Treasure

Posted Sep 12, 2016
Pros: staff; cost; breakfast; little "extras"
Cons: This room was rather small for two people.
Location: It is located in the older part of Independence, MO. There are many historic homes to see, beautiful neighborhoods to walk in and many old churches.
We were greeted by a friendly and kind lady at the front desk. She explained everything clearly and wished us a pleasant stay. I had a few questions about the garden access, and she answered them patiently. Our room was clean, neat, and nicely decorated. Little extra touches included make-up remover towelettes, bottled water, and a lovely laminated prayer on the bed. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast offered a variety of items along with plenty of fresh coffee and orange juice. There is ample parking, and the numbered keypad required to enter the building made us feel very secure.

A hidden gem

Posted Sep 6, 2016 on Hotels
A hidden gem. The room was a little small, but the hotel was unique and the service was great. Downside, we were there on Sunday and all the local, quaint, shops and eating establishments were closed by 2pm. An added bonus was that there was a festival happening while we were there and we enjoyed going to that. Overall, a good place.

Actually everything was quite nice, but the comfort of the bed could be improved.
