Higher Ground is in an excellent location next to the Truman Library and House. It is very accessible to the stadiums and downtown areas as well. Our room was spacious, very clean, and had a great view of the Truman House. The beds were comfortable, and the staff very friendly. There were nice sitting areas on each floor. But for all it's other positive attributes, our room had no closet or hanging area for clothes other than a 5-hook coat rack. It also lacked an iron and board (although t... Read more

My husband and I stayed one night, after a Chiefs' game at Arrowhead Stadium. We appreciated the price of this boutique hotel without a swimming pool or exercise room whuch we didn't need. The bed was comfortable, room exceptionally clean, parking accessible and we had absolutely no complaints. I would recommend this hotel for anyone wanting a comfortable and reasonably priced place to sleep.

This is truly a boutique hotel. Previously a BB now a hotel...but very nice. The rooms were clean. It is located in the historical district of Independence. Harry Trumans home is across the street. You won't be disappointed.

We wanted a convenient place to stay for visiting Truman sites and not the usual fare of chains. This unusual Inn redone in a old office space does the trick. It's not fancy, it's not classy, but it is clean, comfortable, and in its own way quite charming. Location is perfect to walk to NPS sites and good eating and sights downtown. Just don't expect more than it is and you wont be disappointed. Nice people run the place. Beautiful little garden to enjoy. Recommended.

Meticulously maintained office building retrofitted as a boutique hotel! We were pleasantly surprised by the color scheme and art work throughout this hotel. Bright and cheerful. Touches from days gone by ( the toilet seal - reminded me of the late 60s/70s when my brothers and I would fight over who would get to remove it, the wall mounted towel rack that slows you to select what you want with out pawing through the whole pile) with modern amenities like a sound proof room with a freshly coo...

Interesting hotel in an old office building, with very friendly hosts. Each room is different. Very large, clean room. Would love to give this hotel a higher rating but the mattresses were so hard as were the large foam pillows, this is what we remember the most. Room had a sitting area with lovely furniture, and two large windows. The bath was split, with sink outside the bathroom. Lighting at sink was poor. The beautiful outside garden is a little bit of paradise. Had we been in anothe... Read more

We loved the Higher Ground Hotel. From the moment we walked in the door we both had a feeling we were going to enjoy our stay. We first met Mauretta (owner) at the front desk. She was so warm and friendly. She made us feel welcome and gave us a few insights on the ins and outs of Independence. She is a lovely lady. Then we went up to our room. This hotel is much more like a bed and breakfast than a hotel. The halls and rooms are so colorful and very tastefully decorated. Everything was warm ... Read more

This was by far the cleanest hotel we have ever stayed at. Loved the bright colors and white bedding. Gave us the re-assurance that we were sleeping in a super clean bed. Room was huge, and felt like home. We were spending our anniversary weekend in KC for our anniversary and it was in the perfect location. Close to all the things we wanted to do, but off of the beaten path so it was a quiet area. The hotel staff were very friendly. We slept in, so we didn't eat breakfast. Quik Trip was just dow...

Such a wonderful place. Great hospitality. The decor is just beautiful. One of the cleanest ho hotels I've ever been in!! Hotel is right across from president Truman's home. Very centrally located. Not like a hotel chain with all the hustle and bustle. Nice a quite.
