Room was spacious, clean, quiet, and cool. The owner is a delight, and gave great service. We especially enjoyed the beautiful garden area.

A wonderful little hotel... A beautiful garden to sit in; an excellent library and reading room; good hot breakfast; great managers...all freshly painted. Bed very comfortable. Room kept very clean... absolutely no complaints. There is no pool, but for me that's all the better... this is an excellent place to stay for grownups. Right across the street from the Truman home.

My wife and I wanted a place to stay near the Truman Museum. This is it...and much, much more! All the comforts and charm of a top B’n’B and owners to tell you about the area history and great restaurants.

Location is perfect for historical square. Right across the street from Truman's home. Everything is walking distance. Breakfast was okay.

We stayed a week for the conference and on the second day realized the hotel is across Bess and Harry Truman's house. A lot of history in Independence. The room was large enough and had a window coming out to Delaware street. We loved the hotel because it has a personal touch and "bad n breakfast" charm.

President Harry Truman's house.
