Mattress needs replacement. Very few convenient charging outlets available. No elevator; it's broken. Hard to control room temperature. Cheap bed linens. I stayed 2 nights and room was not serviced at all. You have to fill out a breakfast card and put it on your door before 9 p.m.; the 2nd day, my card wasn't picked up at all. When...

We were pleased to enjoy a delicious house made combo tomato bisque soup & tasty chicken salad sandwich on a lovely December 23 visit to The Independence Square! We were surprised to see so many quaint shops & The original Clinton Soda Fountain just across the street!

We had a great lunch here last weekend. It was our first visit to this restaurant and we were not disappointed. I ordered the Oak Grilled Chicken with Havarti cheese and it was fantastic! I got a side salad with it and it was very good too. Only small complaint is the salad wasn't very cold. Maybe it was because...

Decided to pop in while on a day trip to see the Truman Library. Always listed as a favorite locally. It didn't disappoint. Had the daily lunch special of tempura shrimp po boy with fries. Excellent choice. Fries were piping hot and the pool boy added a nice Napa slaw.

We visited Ophelia's while my husband was on a business trip to Independence. This restaurant was recommended by friends who had eaten there several years ago. They said the food and atmosphere was wonderful and we decided to try it out before us for ourselves. We were NOT disappointed. We made a reservation and were seated immediately upon arrival. Our...

The very best burgers in the world come off my smoker. I didn't think there were any burgers even close. Mine are still best, but these compare. I was impressed and very happy to have eaten one. I have no idea about the hotel stuff.

This is a gem in historic downtown Independence. Food is excellent - eclectic menu with something for everyone. My favorite is the Greek Orzo with Shrimp. It is outstanding. My friend got the chicken salad sandwich and loved it. Service is consistently good. It is also an Inn. While I have never stayed here, the location is outstanding for tourism...

Stayed Saturday night with the wife and really enjoyed it! The room was nice and clean, and the restaurant and bar downstairs was very good. You must try the Sunday brunch, it rivals anything we have had anywhere!
