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
Everything about Higher Ground was excellent. Peaceful atmosphere, beautiful garden & rooms.The staff was very attentive & informative. Am looking forward to lodging there again in the future.
Don't expect much with breakfast.
location, staff, breakfast, flower garden, security system
Atmosphere. Kind of B&B .
No fitness center
I felt like home every time we came back for the evening. It had a bed & breakfast feel to it.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Beautiful garden. Very quiet and peaceful.
Sort of reminded me of my college dormitory back in the eighties. Concrete block walls, etc. Nothing too fancy, but comfortable.
The room was big.
The only reason I booked the room because Ur site said it had a pool, there was no pool. My stay was very undesirable, I would not stay there again or use Ur site again!!!
Christian environment and uplifting, happy people.
Very picturesque location, across from Harry Truman's home. Unfortunately, Independence as a town leaves much to be desired. I would have much rather stayed 15 miles west in KC, MO. It's important for users to map out the location before booking: don’t take the website’s word as gospel on proximity to anything. I just repeated the same mistake here in Denver as I booked a nice hotel, which I thought was close to the city only to find it is 20 miles from all the action downtown! Anyway, the place is extremely comfortable and meticulously clean. It's very "homey" with nice reading areas, etc. If you're traveling to see the Truman offerings, this is an excellent place to stay; especially for families. I would definitely not recommend it for business travelers, however.
I had to get up early the next morning to drive 600 miles to Denver. Just as a fell asleep, a family came back to the two rooms next to me. Evidently the kids (just being kids mind you) hadn't stayed in a hotel like this before because they kept running down the hall from room to room giggling and screaming and knocking on each door over and over, doors opening and closing repeatedly, etc. Finally, I decided enough and tried to call downstairs to the desk but, being a wannabe bed and breakfast, there was no one there late at night. Finally, after getting up and watching for her, I let the mom know I wasn’t happy. In her defense, she immediately quieted everyone down and I drifted off to sleep. My problem, in particular, is that contrary to what the website showed, it wasn’t ever close to being sold out (I don’t think) and I checked in early (2:00 pm) so the desk clerk, knowing full well that I was a single traveler, should not have put me next to a family with children, and next to the stairway door. I travel extensively and have never had this problem before.
Location, location, location!! Seemed to be located on the wrong side of town. It made the wife and kids nervous just to stay there. My three year old got so upset that she got sick and we had to leave, cutting our two day stay to one. The hotel refused to refund our money for the second night even though they had enough time to rent it again. The hotel should also be more up front about the actual building, it used to be an office and still looks like on inside. The decor was even stranger with wildly colored walls and country/tropical theme. The absolute worst stay of our lives. Booking.com has the hotel listed as three stars it really needs to be one!!
