The first thing I noticed when I walked in was that it looked as though someone had put stickers on the headboard and then pulled them off. This left a white film in those areas. There were spots like that on the night stands too. The comforter was little more than a colored sheet. The pillows were tiny- and only... More

Stayed there for 2 nights last week and couldn't wait to leave, although there were a few positives. Beds: 2 queens that were quite comfortable, except for the fact that one had a plastic lined mattress pad which made noise and felt clammy. Microwave and fridge: worked well. Room odor: we asked for a non-smoking room, but this one smelled... More

I had a great stay at this motel during a cross-country trip for business. The rooms were cozy, clean, comfortable and just what you want to relax into when you need a break. The management is so friendly and courteous checking in is a breeze and they really take care of you. I'd never stay anywhere else passing through Independence/Kansas... More

U don't need to get on the Interstate to get to the park for this location. The breakfast was below average with some toast, a waffle machine, oj... More

Stayed here only because we were tired and there was little else available. The pillows are small and flat, the room dark and musty. Not a great neighborhood. The Internet is all but non-existent. If you are looking for a cheap room with no frills this place is for you.

Stayed here for two nights with my parents. Both our rooms were spotlessly clean and very well maintained. Had first floor rooms overlooking the car park. Nice quiet location and comfortable (massive) beds. We didn't have the breakfast, but it looked good but basic. Couple of cereals, muffins, coffee etc. Would recommend.
