“Good Value”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

We spent one night at this motel after storing our RV. We have not routinely stayed in Motels in awhile. The staff was accommodating and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was typical for a mid priced hotel. We felt it was a good value for our needs.

Room Tip: It is quite noisy right off the freeway, so the farther you get away from the freeway the quieter i...

The Truman Inn was wonderful. Comfortable spacious rooms and a relaxing atmosphere. The staff was cheerful and helpful. Such great restaurant selection sheets in the lobby. The breakfast was fun and very good. We loved the pancake making machine. Choose an in the square side room for less highway noise. We had a very quiet night. Convenient to park right outside the door. Lovely landscaping and very much an Inn feel as opposed to hotel. Such a good choice for a weary traveler.

This Best Western was very clean and check in/out was very easy. My room was updated and pleasant and the bed very comfortable. It is conveniently located off of I-70. Close to the stadiums and the Truman attractions.

The only reason why I did not give it a perfect score is that my room faced I-70 and was noisy from the trucks at night. This is an old style Motel where all the rooms are accessible from the outside. The online pictures are accurate and you need to walk up a flight of stairs to access the second floor rooms from the outside. Or you can park in front of your hotel room and walk in.

Room Tip: Room not facing I-70 would be best for peace and quiet.

2 Exits from the Chiefs Stadium and very easy to find right off I-70 highway. Rooms were very clean and room service came in made the bed and brought clean towels. Very nice room for the money although the breakfast is something to be desired: cereal, boiled eggs from a fridge, pancakes you make yourself. Needless to say we went to IHOP for breakfast. Will definitely come back though.

Not because the hotel itself is bad, but it's just not "user friendly".
We requested a late checkout (which we had gotten at another hotel without a problem), and we were told that they could give us only until noon without charging us. At 12:05, as we were dragging our bags out of our room, they called to see how much longer we were going to be there. Also, the door to the room had a gap almost all the way around it, so the highway noise came right in the room all night. We had a second floor room - and no elevator.
Breakfast was good, and the lady taking care of the breakfast area was friendly. But, other than that, it was not a great experience.

We spend the night at the hotel as it was on route to our destination in the East. Without a reservation we were accommodated and our room was exactly what we expect for a Best Western property. The breakfast was quite filling and provided us with enough nourishment to drive several hours before needing to re-fuel ourselves.
