The cleanliness of the sheets and the staff was great. Even in winter the garden was beautiful.
a lot of dust had accumulated on the ceiling fan in the bathroom.
The staff was vet nice and rooms were clean.
Very secluded area. We had to drive to get to shopping areas and restaurants.
Comfortable beds, great bathroom, nice comfortable chairs to sit in (2 upholstered, just like home. On site owners wonderful. Lovely outside patio with tables, chairs, running brook, landscaped with flowers and trees. Great location to Truman Library and downtown.
Location and the hotel is clean and the staff is pleasant!
It was good the only thing was we have 2 little kids so the room is more for just adults but the kids still enjoyed the stay
location. It's about 1 miles walk from both. The Truman library and the Metro transit. No supermarket nearby though.
Homelike feel. It felt like part hotel and part B&B.
Hotel was clean and comfortable. A great value for the money.
felt very much like being in a home
because we booked last minute we were only able to get smallest room in the facility and it was too small with no windows and felt like i was in a closet. In talking with the desk clerk when we checked out she asked about our stay and i mentioned the room size and she gave us a key to go and view another room which was so nice and big and lots of window.
It was quiet. The bed was comfortable.
That there wasn't an iron/ironing board in the room. This was a disappointment to me. My clothes were folded in a suitcase for hours and i knew I'd be able to iron them in the hotel. I felt it was a disservice for me to have to go to the desk and ask for an ironing board then carry it back to my room. Thumbs down in this aspect of the hotel.
i really liked the tranquil feeling you have from the moment you walk in. the gardens are beautiful and relaxing. Breakfast was very good and plenty of choices. I can't wait to go back again and just unwind with a good book and a massage.
We had a rather small room but come to find out it was the smallest room they have and after touring some of the other rooms we will request room with window next time.
The rooms are very "homey" and comforting, making you feel as if you weren't staying in a hotel at all. I really liked the complimentary Keurig coffee cups/maker in the rooms, which made it very simple to get your morning cup of joe and get moving for sight seeing. Also, the location has a lot of historical value with great food locations within walking distance.
This location is clean and I really liked the layout of the room. The bathroom sink is outside the bathroom, making it easy for two people to get ready at once. I also just liked the general feel of the hotel. The free wi-fi and parking is nice, and the complimentary breakfast is better than most places I've stayed at before. The free Keurig coffee in the room is also nice. The location is absolutely perfect for visiting KC. You can hop onto Truman right next to the hotel and go all the way into the city in roughly 20 minutes without much hassle.
The bed could have been a little more comfortable, but it wasn't terrible. Also, watch out for staining the comforter and towels. We didn't have an issue with this, but some people might.
Wonderful location and staff
Bed was very uncomfortable
A very comfortable room, beautiful garden, friendly owners.
I would have preferred a variety of tv news stations to watch at breakfast time, perhaps rotating them (one day CNN, then CNBC, then Fox, then a local station).
The room was homey and comfortable, didn't have the hotel feel, more like a b&b. Quiet place to stay
No fridge, not very many options for breakfast
Very clean. Quiet. Comfortable. The historical sights around the hotel.
Immaculate room, great location!
Very Quiet. Area was safe and secure. We walked downtown for dinner, about 5 blocks. Next door to 2 National homes. Trumanns home , his aunts home. ^ Blocks fro Trumanns library.
Felt like a B&B. Homey, friendly. great furnishings. desk person very helpful. They told us the building was an old run down office that they refurbished.
breakfast so-so but adequate.
The beds were very comfortable, it was extremely clean, and the breakfast was good
Nothing to do with small kids, but a good value for a comfortable bed
Nice little hotel for the price, good location.
Higher Ground Hotel was wonderful! We loved our beautiful, quiet, comfortable room. Our bed had lovely linens and our room had a view of the patio garden. The hotel was very clean, nicely decorated & appeared new or redecorated in many respects! The location was near many of our desired historical tourist attractions. The Owners provided a large continental breakfast & were very accommodating! We definitely will stay at Higher Ground again!
We didn't have time to stay longer on that first visit! Next time we will allow for more time to enjoy the hotel and historical area longer!
clean, across from Truman House, near downtown
interior looks like a dormitory
