Best Western Truman Inn

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel was not as represented. The pictures & description makes it seem like a newly renovated picturesque choice. However, it is a dumpy, cramped, 70's MOTEL. The lobby has been redecorated, but the rooms are not nice. The bathroom still had '80 pink and blue feathered wall paper, an old shower with no water pressure, a light that flickered & buzzed, a gross yellow cigarette smoke stained vent, and a toilet lid that completely fell off. There was barely room to walk around the beds, and the whole experience just gave us the creeps. If all you need is a place to sleep, maybe consider this if the price is cheap enough, otherwise you would be way better to find another option. Don't be fooled by the pretty pictures. They are deceptive.

The room was very clean and nice. The locations was convenient, but our room was facing the freeway and it was a little noisy. Other than that I enjoyed the stay

A good hotel to spent the night with family and a young child. Close to highway.

In town to see the kansas city royals staff was great and hotel was cozy.

Hotel is older, but clean. There is a Hardee's , Denny's ,walgreens ,Cvs and quick trip located within walking distance. Bit pricy for older facility.

Was good except for the last 2 night had people outside of room , drinking and being very loud between 2am and 4am. They need some sort of security, I'm sure some of it cones from the Super 8 across the parking lot, maybe theft could split the cost of security guard on weekends.

The front desk staff was friendly. The crew that was doing the remodel walked in on my wife with little warning. They also entered the room while we were out, AND HAD THE DO NOT DISTURB SIGN ON THE DOOR!!!! In my opinion, management could have handled this remodel much better.

Location was fine but the rooms are small and rather noisy. Over all I got what I paid for.

This hotel is located close to I70. It has spacious rooms and we found d it very clean. Lots of restaurants close by. Would stay again.

All around good stuff. The hotel was suitable for my business trip.

Clean room & the front desk ladies were very polite.

We stayed here for a Chiefs game. Good location, took 5 minutes to get to the stadium. Clean and has an outdoor pool. Has free breakfast which wasn't anything special but at least it was offered. Also fridge & microwave in room. For price we paid, we would go back.

Room door would not lock and waited 30 mins. and 2 calls later to get someone to fix it.

I stayed at the motel the night before a conference. The place was clean and in decent shape. It was worth the money spent.

I stayed at this hotel the night before my graduation ceremony. It was located near my graduation and just off the expressway, although I had a little bit of a hard time finding the entrance in the middle of the night. My 12am check-in didn't seem to phase the desk clerk nor did my notice of a dog (since I had booked through a travel website, they didn't have a heads up on my four legged companion). They welcomed him (with a $10 fee, but that's understandable) and even gave him his own welcome kit! The breakfast the following morning was incredible and full of choices. I have a decent appetite and was not scolded for how much I ate (which is amazing)! I'd recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area!

Simply wonderful experience.. Learned so much about Harry Truman and the historic trails that started in Independence. Kansas City...Fountain City, Hallmark City, Central Plaza (greatest shopping center in USA), Nelson-Atkins Museum... incredible. Best beef barbecue.

I have one good day in this hotel,it have free breakfast ,free parking and it is close to the speed road and convenient for us to travel to st.louis.

As a young couple traveling on a budget this hotel was a perfect fit. We only stayed for one night, but the staff was friendly, the room was clean, and the location was unbeatable (for stadium travelers). Free WiFi and a computer and printer in the lobby in case you need to make last minute arrangements. Breakfast was basic but all we needed with pancakes, bagels, etc. Would recommend to all who are looking for value over traditional 5 star accommodations.

There is so much I can say...Wonderful place...Staff was extremely nice, helpful, and fun. When I say staff I mean EVERYONE from the front desk to the cleaning crew.. Super accomadating about everything..rooms were desent sized..clean..Highly recocommend this hotel to any traveler going to this area!!! :)

Service was awesome. Very friendly staff. rooms were very clean, but small for three people to move around. everything was very easy to get to, stores, excellent restaurants. Would like to see outside hotel painted and a cleaner, but overall, I would recommend this Hotel for a short stay.
