Hotel was conveniently located right on routes 20 and 150 ,very inviting exterior and were greeted warmly. First impression of the room was clean and very accommodating. Used exercise facility each morning,very satisfied. Breakfast room with 8-9 tables . Dry cereal, oatmeal, toast, bagels,waffles, bite size sweet rolls,yogurt with fresh blueberries,strawberries that can be added. Scrambled eggs, sausage,bacon and biscuits and gravy. Helpful and cheerful staff.Room staff was excellent on daily cleaning of room. Will stay again the next time when visiting family. Job well done

Very nice surroundings of a meadow and swan pond, clean rooms, helpful and hard working staff, complete breakfast bar of hot and cold offerings. Well worth the price of an overnight stay. Always someone at the desk.

Making reservations was a breeze. No questions by our guests. Front desk staff extremely accommodating. Small town Iowa yet beyond big city service. We would recommend to others as well. Parking convenient & safe.

We loved it here. It was clean and comfortable. The staff was very nice. The indoor pool was clean. Breakfast was one of the better ones we've had at a hotel. The view of the lake with the swan was beautiful. The hotel is in a quiet area and is like a farmhouse with a nice porch. It also has a back patio with a grill.

Traveling for work in independence Iowa. Weather forecast was not good. Decided to stay overnight. Lady at desk told me areas to go in case of tornado. Also reviewed sirens, as well as local restaurants. Very professional and informative. I highly recommend staying here!

Hotel was very comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was awesome. Best sausage gravy I have ever had at a hotel. We ate outside on the patio and enjoyed ourselves very much. Would recommend this hotel for a comfortable overnight while traveling.

Our room smelled of stale cigarette smoke. Furniture is dated and looks dirty/worn. Here for a wedding but wouldn't recommend unless you're just here for a quick night's sleep while traveling as it is close to the highway .

We stayed at the Independence Iowa Best Western for a wedding that was taking place at Backbone State Park which was approx 45 minutes away from the hotel. This was a clean, comfortable and quiet place to stay.

My husband and I regularly stay at this hotel to visit family. The facility is always clean and comfortable . . . and the staff is very friendly and responsive to any needs we may have. They also do a great job of welcoming Rewards members!

I had a great time at the hotel staff was great and helpful wish there was a bar or restaurant in walking distance and semi truck parking but the street did just fine I suppose .... Rooms rate was a little expensive for being in the middle of nowhere but it's okay better then the super 8
