This location was convenient to all the Truman attractions. Located in a quiet neighborhood, I could have walked to most destinations. My room, 309, was well attended, large and comfortable. My view was of the Truman Home. The management was very nice and informative. In fact, if you will let them know when you are going to be down for breakfast, your eggs will be cooked and ready. On the third floor there was a nice common area with seating and library books. on the first floor the br... Read more

We stayed at the Higher Ground on a Wednesday night. Since I have some trouble with stairs, I was relieved to find that this small hotel has an elevator. Although we had booked a discount rate through booking.com, the desk clerk said that the hotel wouldn't accept that rate. Eventually, he accepted our payment at the lower rate. Our room was small with one queen bed, a TV, and a Keurig coffee maker. Our room had a small window in the bedroom and a larger one in the bathroom. The wifi reception... Read more

. Recently we spent two nights at Higher Ground and enjoyed every minute. The Innkeepers are friendly, helpful and operate a very clean, attractive boutique hotel with every amenity available, including breakfast. The location is terrific near all attractions (across the street from the Truman home) and gardens a lovely place to recuperate from a day of sightseeing. We would be so happy to return.

Friendly warm and beautiful inside with an old time feel and modern conveniences. Right across from Bess &Harry‚??s home. Nice to get away from sterile Holiday Inn type hotels. A definite recommendation

We stayed two nights at Higher Ground. It is a lovely small hotel near the stadium and right across the street from the Truman home. Rooms are well equipped and very clean. Breakfast was very good. I would stay here again.

I usually get to KC a few times a year to catch some Royals games with either my wife or friends and never really enjoy my hotel experience. This weekend my wife and I stayed at Higher Ground and will now be staying here EVERY time we come down. I was I little nervous on the drive into Independence from the interstate because it seemed kind of sketchy but as you get closer to the historical district where the hotel is everything changes. The hotel is in an old office building right across the st... Read more

We stayed at the Higher Ground Hotel for 5 days this September. The location is ideal for visiting the Harry Truman sites and the Trails museum. The hotel is older, but very comfortable. Bed was great, linens and comforter even better. Many wonderful amenities including breakfast and wireless. The owners were gracious and kind towards every request we made. I would definitely stay here again if I ever return to this area. At just 15-20 minutes from Kansas City, its a small town alternative... Read more

The Higher Ground Hotel is a pleasant boutique hotel. While it doesn't merit five stars, it's clean, friendly, and definitely five star convenient for the Truman sites. It sits directly across a small side street from the Truman Home. The Higher Ground has an ample rear parking lot; the alley entrance is easily missed by a too small sign.

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.
