Great location
We arrived at check in time which is 2 PM. Our room was clean and ready for us. The rooms are furnished as your bedroom would be at home, not the typical chain hotel bed, dresser and night stands. We stayed in room 210 which is small but comfortable for 2 people. We had a king bed that was very comfortable. Be advised that this room does not have a closet. There is a rack with hangers on the wall where you can hang your clothes. The view from our window was partially obscured by a large tree, otherwise you would look down on the beautiful garden. We had a coffee maker and hair dryer, 2 complimentary bottles of water, some shampoo, conditioner and lotion. I found the room to need more lighting, but this is my complaint in every hotel I stay in. The lobby and common areas are beautifully furnished in antiques and there are many inviting areas to sit and read or just look at the furnishings. The owners are friendly and helpful. There is a complimentary breakfast included but we did not make it to the dining area any morning. We had family staying in Blue Springs so, we met up with them frequently. We found this hotel to be in a great location to tour all the historical Truman sites. You can walk to many sites, in fact the Truman home is steps across the street. We would certainly stay here again and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

Wonderful staff. ( they showed us a shortcut that saved 15-20 minutes of rush hour traffic ). Beautiful garden for morning coffee. Good food and great lodgings.

Spacious Stay!
We have stayed at this motel in the past. The rooms are very spacious and room for a group to gather. It has common areas for gathering as well. The older gentleman that helps run it was a little on the cranky side at check in.
