Thanks for a wonderful stay. We loved the large room since there were 3 of us, and the location was great for the reasons we were there. We would book again if we return someday.
Location was excellent for my purpose, the garden was lovely, staff was attentive in a slacker sort of way, not bad just not a bundle of energy,
The hotel guide had so many rules it was almost like staying at mom and dad's house and the rules so strongly listed would be common courtesy manners to most travelers. The door belong locked when we arrived and we had to buzz in was unexpected (and this was late afternoon).
The rooms are spacious, very clean and newly renovated. Very friendly staff.
The location in Independence is questionable: It seems that the neighbourhood a few crossroads away is run down with oddish people on the street.
I loved they homey atmosphere! The room were a nice size, and it was the perfect location for the things we wanted to see in Independence. I highly recommend it!
The hotel is very comfortable and very clean. Also, the garden was beautiful and a wonderful place to relax.
There isn't anything I didn't like about the hotel.
Loved the staff and decor. Very cute and homey. GREAT placement right near Independence Square which is lovely to walk around.
Continental breakfast a bit lacking.
Was upgraded to King size room. Very pleasant room, very clean. Staff were very obliging and helpful. Breakfast adequate. Would highly recommend. Many historic sites very close to the hotel in Independence
It is comfortable, well decorated, quiet and centrally located close to historic civil war and Truman era cites. AndI it is just a short drive to the Kansas City attractions.
Room was very spacious and comfortable. Staff was exceptionally friendly. Nice quiet neighborhoof.
The people in the next room were very loud and noisy. Not the hotels fault though.
For our purposes it was close to the CoC locations... And also to the shops where we ate on several occasions. The availability of a continental breakfast was good. That for the most part was an adequate start to each day. I did appreciate the special attention offered at check in (larger bedroom) The WiFi availability was especially helpful... and gave no problems. * I did note that when the computer was connected, it disabled the phone. This was no problem but others less technically aware may not realise that this can happen.
Excellent value for money. Couldn't fault any aspect of our stay.
The room was very clean. Bed comfortable and breakfast excellent. Gorgeous gardens and friendly informative hosts. We loved the location as we were there to do all the Truman things and were right across the street. We also loved the WW1 museum.
Garden, Room, location, cleanliness
breakfast could have been better, more options, hot food
Having an owner proprietor who has pride in his facility, and knowledge of the surrounding area, is definitely a positive experience for the guest who stay at The Higher Ground Hotel. 'K' and Rita are welcoming, helpful, and receptive to your needs.
Friendliness, location, layout of hotel
I loved the cleanliness and the uniqueness of the hotel. It was well appointed and also very quiet. The hotel was located across the street from Harry Truman's house so it felt quaint. The location was wonderful and the closeness of excellent restaurants was nice. There was also a beautiful garden on the propert which was very well maintained and peaceful. If you need a place to stay this hotel was a real gem.
I loved this hotel!
