What a wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary! The hosts were incredibly welcoming and accommodating! The rooms were smartly decorated and the ambiance was warm and comfortable Breakfast was so satisfying, very delicious! We also spent plenty of time in their open air spa tub (available to all guests) We couldn’t have asked for a more relaxing and romantic weekend!

Jordan Rose

Really enjoyed just hanging out here! Big comfy rooms and bed, hot tub in a screened in porch which we tried during the day and night Both were very spa like The back yard had lots of greenery and was so peaceful

Breakfast was AMAZING and Charles the owner is great Highly recommend Just need to make the water pressure better in the shower That’s my only suggestion!


I’ve only just met the owners of the Inn, but I had SUCH a fantastic time meeting with them to plan a baby shower I’m hosting at their place, I already felt comfortable giving them a five-star review!! The place is literally AMAZING, I don’t think I could find a better spot for my friends shower if I had a whole year to do it! Just a lovely couple running a lovely establishment, we CAN’T WAIT to have our shower with them!!!

The Candlewood Suites Independence MO is in a nice quiet location away from the street Hotel appears to be relatively recent construction and was in really good shape Parking lot was fine and the whole place had a safe atmosphere

My room was immaculately clean from one side to the other The layout was great and all appliances were in great condition TV was larger than most hotels offer The bed, pillows, and linens were as comfortable as you can getBathroom was also great very clean Phenomenal shower headStaff was exceptional, most accommodating and professionalMy only gigs: There is an exhaust fan that runs 24/7 in the bathroom that has no switch And mine happened to have a slight whine that was very annoying and audible when the AC was not running Also, by the lobby in the commons area where there was coffee and foods for sale, it was in need of counter wipe downs and trash removal both times I visitedI would not hesitate for a return visit Great experience

Valerie Ri

Clean! Room with a lot of room! Very modern feel as well Things you couldn’t imagine were stocked with all essentials, safe neighborhood, and quiet relaxing place

Hot tub a super plus plus! Convince of quite a few major restaurants in walking distance Friendly staff very welcoming and accommodating! Would highly recommend and would give 10 stars if I could Thank you for such a pleasant stay!


My room was clean and spacious The lay out allows you to not feel compact Plenty of counter and drawers space and good size closet

Full size fridge and full size microwave , dishes, and a two eye stove and dishwasher This is the perfect place for a short or extended stay I highly recommend this location The staff was nice and helpful Someone just about always greeted me Good security measures Nice indoor pool and hot tub Convenient workout room Games and movies and other appliances can be checked out if needed from the front deskI just wanted to take my room with me I will definitely be staying here when I return Lord WillingThank you all kindly for a wonderful stay!

I have been here for literally 25 minutes and I am so happy! Emma was so sweet checking me in, making me laugh after a long day of work Check was smooth and she told me everything I needed to know Room looks tidy, great city view and looks very modern for a residence inn

Valet parking was so calm, I actually left my phone in the car and the gentleman at the desk quickly grabbed it for me I was so nervous but he worked fast! Thank your team so much I am happy to be here!

Timothy Betts

Amazing location and Front desk staffThe front desk staff was next level, always smiling and welcoming even though I was there for a 34 days, always had great recommendations and willing to help3 star rating comes from my room not being turned over after repeated requests

I had requests or pickup new towels myself Housekeeping at this location was horrible The one time my room was addressed it was not actually cleaned They took out the trash and made my bed with the same linen (There was Covid mask in between the sheets when I got in bed that evening) The young lady at the front desk in the afternoons (Sorry, I don’t remember your name) was delightful (made want to take trip to Tennessee) and the Chandra at the bar made paying 14 -12 $ for a glass of almost okEasy to walk find something to do from this location but it has its upside and downsidesWhere ever you travel Enjoy it

Bill Ingalls

The staff at this hotel is horrible Clerk lied to us We checked in and the A/C in our room didn’t work in 100 degree weather

We were told we could move if we want Most better hotels would have their staff do the moving in that case No offer Treated very rudely She told us points we be added to our loyalty account Never happened

We had a lovely stay here for two nights Our room was large and well appointed, and the bathroom was big and all marble, with a no- fog mirror The hotel was beautiful, very clean, tastefully done

The online check-in was quick and easy, same for checkout There was music in the bar, which was lovely, and the bartender, Robert, was delightful We really loved having a balcony and a nice view of country Club plaza, and we were close to everything The beds were really comfortable, with one firmer pillow and one that was soft and comfy The restaurant was great, and our breakfast was really nice All the hotel employees went out of their way to do whatever they could for usWe did have an issue with the A/C, since I’m always cold and we could not get it warm enough, so we just turned it off The only thing I could suggest is a towel rack in the bathroom by the vanity, that would make things easier, but overall everything was amazing We’re planning on returning, and possibly staying at the concierge level next time Beautiful hotel!

jill burns

First stay here Hotel is beautiful and spotless Staff are personable and professional

Although requests weren’t spot on the first time, either wrong room or forgot something, every measure was taken to ensure requests were fulfilled Wait and cleaning staff were especially top notch with care attention you’d expect in a five star resort Salad at American Slang restaurant was perfect Rooms were above average, with robe and slippers Management seems somewhat new in the profession but adapting Overall a great great experience

LaRhonda Boone

My husband and I had an impromptu date night The room and staff were amazing I highly recommend the concierge package so you can have access to the VIP lounge

Don elevated our experience to make it an unforgettable night There were several people waiting to check in and Jacob, who was walking out the door for the night, stepped in and helped everyone get checked in quickly We cannot wait to stay again

Good Hotel Breakfast was good and had some unique options like egg souffle and sugar Belgian waffles (or something like that) and had basics like juice oatmeal yogurt bagels and waffle maker Additional outdoor seating next to breakfast area was a nice touch with some decent views

Rooms were good size (2 queen suite), bathroom was clean and had enough towels for a family of 4 without having to call front desk for more I do also like the soaps and hair products in the shower with a dispenser Some of the fixtures in room were nice enough to consider them for my own home it did not feel outdated I would definitely stay here again Overall positive experience No complaints


Very nice Room was really clean Staff are all very nice

Breakfast could be a bit better My girlfriend doesn’t eat cheese but they only provide prepackaged breakfast sandwiches that have cheese I usually stay at Hilton properties because as a business traveler I get credit for my stay even if book through a third party site Would frequent this hotel even more if they did the same

Athena Press

If I had 6 stars i’d give them to this work and play gem Due to work, i travel very often and our stays at hotels are long so, the hotel is our gome for weeks, and sometimes montg This Marriott branch is bar far at the rop in my experience with other branda

They do offer cumplimentary breakfast, which I almost never used because i had a kitchenette in my Jr Suite The breakfast is not their high point but, hey it’s cumplimentaryBy far that little flaw is overcompensated by super kind and pro staff, a salt water pool, a very decent gym and many other amenities, clean, neat, modernTo many good things for this short reviewThere is no other place to arrive in Kansas City, MO for your work needs

The room we stayed in was very nice and comfortable Parking wasn’t good at all and we had to pay $15 for the lousy parking The breakfast was lousy at best

Nothing fresh, prepackaged and microwaved Fruit was clearly aged I could say a lot more but won’t, just don’t expect anything nice and you will won’t be disappointed The staff were all nice and helpful,But won’t be staying there again

Coach Chaz

Definitely well maintained facility and GREAT STAFF

From the moment we got there until the moment we checked out everything was phenomenal My group mainly worked with Lisa who pulled out the red carpet treatment for us from the moment we arrived Once we were all checked in, Lisa passed the torch to Front Desk Manager Brenda who was amazing the whole time we were there as well The whole staff from TOP NOTCH from Lisa all the way down to white lady who did housekeeping!!! I would recommend this location to EVERYONE and we will definitely be back for any future trips to Kansas City Oklahoma Irish Basketball Organization wants to Thank (Lisa) & the whole Springhill Suites Plaza Staff for a Great 4-5 Day Stay!!!

Rachel Eis

First just know that the parking here is a joke, the lot when you pull into the lobby/check in area has angled spots that you will barely be able to park in let alone open your door They have a “parking garage” with barely any spots Just know you will probably pay $15 to not guarantee a parking spot for yourself

The hotel was nice, it is new, it’s close to what we needed But beware when planning on parking

Janessa Mckissack

We stayed a couple nights and loved the experience The only downside was that some of the dining choices located within the hotel were limited, so we didn’t get to try them all as we had hoped The rooms were clean with a nice layout and plenty of storage

The hotel had a clean smell to it that we appreciated We would definitely stay here again! Within a close drive to all sorts of food and sights to see, it was a great choice for us


The tiny smoking balconies in the hotel rooms are pretty awesome Pull out couch is not comfortable, but it is not too bad Food options are pretty poor

Could not find any food available after midnight on a Saturday night Nothing nearby outside of the resort either Casino floor is fine Strong enough police and security presence that everyone should feel safe whenever Soda vending machines did not work on at least three different floors Disappointing to not have some at least food vending machine options since everything closes so early The food options were severely lacking overall The room was nice and the king bed was comfortable The tiny smoking balcony is really the number one selling feature

Marci C

Nice place with lots of restaurants, (the buffet is closed for now due to covid, I miss the all you can eat crab night you was able to get there), fast food, drinking establishment, sports bar, even a movie theater and arcade for everyone else Hotel is clean and fresh Welcoming and warm

Definitely a place to relax Open parking and a parking garage plus valet parking If you just need a place to walk around to get exercise this is a good spot Lots of bright lights and inviting atmosphere Go see and enjoy!

Definitely recommend this place for a relaxing getaway The only downside to our stay was the loud guests, which the hotel can’t control We had the theme suite and it was lovely

We did have to ask for more shampoo, as there was only enough for one person But they kindly gave me more! The room was very nicely decorated and the view was very nice Breakfast was really good, better than most hotels This was my second stay and I would definitely go back 😊

D. Anthony Coleman

So, it’s a hotel You want clean room, safe property, some conveniences like a microwave and mini-fridge, snacks, a bar, ample parking, you get those things What makes this place great is the people

Everyone I had to interact with was wonderful and always gave me the feeling that I was important and that what I had to say, they wanted to hear It was really nice From check, to the night shift worker giving me directions, to the guy at the bar and even the person who was taking care of my room, everyone was great This is a good place to stay by yourself, with a group or with your family I highly recommend and I will definitely make this my hotel of choice for all of my visits

Briana Schmidt

Great location, clean hotel, super friendly staff, amazing room (get the king with the whirlpool tub — worth it), AND, our favorite was that they have “adult swim” from 10-11pm There was a large group of teens at the hotel during our stay and, as kids do, they were all over the pool having a good time Adult swim hour gave us the time to just … chill, as adults like to do, without the craziness of kids being kids

If you need somewhere to stay in or around Kansas City, definitely pick this one It’s just far enough away from the big city to stay safe and quiet but also close enough to enjoy what the city and surrounding areas have to offerWill definitely book here next time I’m in the area 10/10

ZERO STARS! this hotel charged my card for my entire hotel stay…then as I’m standing in line to check in I over hear that my stay was CANCELLED because they “were overbooked” NO CALL IN ADVANCE! NO APOLOGY! They said that since I booked third party, my reservation was first to be automatically cancelled They knew this this morning and proceeded to charge my card anyway

Had I known this before my 4 hour drive here, I could have made alternate arrangements but no…had to be just as we arrived to check in…VERY ANGRY WITH THIS PLACE! Now we’re having to scramble to find a hotel…kids in tote and all VERY POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE!

The hotel has a nice location close to the uptown theater and the action on the plaza within walking distance The front desk staff is helpful and very nice The room itself has wear and tear, but out king room came with a nice sofa and table

Parking isn’t super easy because it’s a garage with separate elevator access, but it was fine


Wants to be a 4 star, but not there $2800 Valet under staffed when we got there and the rest of the weekend

Had 350 guests for a wedding, shouldn’t have been a surprise Check in was okay, but not real welcoming Slow elevators, seemed like only one of four was working Ice machine on 15th floor never worked Room a/c wasn’t working until about 10:30 our first night Toilet ran every 10 minutes Bridgette was the first friendly employee we ran into Breakfast hostess was nice and breakfast was good, but overpriced Wedding reception with 350 guests had two bars with a minimum of 15 minute service wait All issues can be excused to staffing issues, and I don’t like leaving negative reviews, except I expressed concerns on the Marriott Bonvoy site and was ignored Good service goes a long waypoor service, not much

Mama Bearnath

Will stay at this hotel again! Chance at the front desk was incredibly helpful and friendly the views of the Plaza were amazing and I loved having coffee in my room while looking out at the fountains The shower door punched our fingers but we had to be mindful of not putting our finger on the handle while getting out of the shower I loved the detachable shower head, made it easy to wash the kiddos after a humid day!

This place was such a great stay! It was very homey with a quaint feel of comfort The staff was extremely helpful and so pleasant 10/10 recommend on staying here

Super close to the stadium!! Once we got our of the stadium traffic I would say it was about 6-8 minutes away from where everything stops with streets shut down to clear the stadium 😃 So convenient! 🤗 My girlfriend and I really loved all of the antique style furniture and the decor Was just a very neat little place to stay with some history

Shona Seiler

I have stayed at many B&B and this one was one of the best Very attentive host, private bath rooms with luxurious linens There were delicious snacks out every afternoon

Games, books and DVD’s for entertainment Decorating was tastefully beautiful The breakfast was to die for and would cook an alternative if needed Would definitely stay here again

Maggie Parker

Charming inn with comfortable, clean rooms and lots of personal touches that made it a perfect “home base” for us during our weekend in KC There’s complimentary coffee, soda and water in main room and desserts on the table each afternoon in addition to the homemade breakfast each morning Debbie is an attentive and accommodating innkeeper

She even made eggs for my husband and me for breakfast when she noticed we didn’t finish our initial plate, as neither of us are huge fans of French toast We stayed in the gorgeous Italian room with the spa tub and fireplace The bed was very comfortable, and I slept so well even though I usually have trouble sleeping away from home The inn is in a great location if you are planning to catch a few Royals games which is what we did Will definitely be returning in the future!

Becca Prox

The only reason this hotel got 4 stars instead of 5 is because of noise The walls seemed pretty thin, so we heard a lot of outside noise and a quiet conversation in the hallways sounded like they were right next to us in our room Otherwise, all of the staff was very helpful, the location was perfect (near everything we wanted to do), and the hotel was clean, comfortable, and homey

Don’t forget to have your parking pass validated if you keep a vehicle on site!

R Len

Always a great stay Hotel is clean and mostly quiet A bit of inside work is going on right now

There were workers in the lobby and outside my door for most of my visit I wasn’t disturbed The bartenders were great Especially the gentleman I hate I didn’t get his name Great outside patio with fire pits Location is safe and quiet I stay here often for business

Anthony Tripp

Booked this hotel because its fairly close to downtown Nice hotel and they seem to be doing work to renovate it Was disappointed in the bed and the pillows

The mattress was very firm and the pillows were not Bed is a personal preference so my rating isn’t based on that My 3 star is because the rooms don’t block out much noise We could hear conversations next door as well as people in the hallway and this was during the night Disappointed that the pool and hot tub were down for maintenance Will probably stay again once the remodel is complete

Heather Rowland

My boyfriend found this hotel, when there was no availability at the hotel chain he usually books What a quaint little find! I wasn’t sure what to expect when we first arrived, as it is pretty hidden among a somewhat residential area But it was fantastic! Number one most important thing to me is cleanliness! This place is clean! I was impressed, and that’s not easy to do

I would go as far to say that every dollar I’ve spent somewhere else (and we’re talking about decades of 5-star hotels, $200-$300/night), was wasted on rooms that don’t come close to how clean this one felt!You sure can see the difference when a hotel is ran by the very people that have an “interest” in it They are invested, and they treat it accordingly We will visit again!!We even had a skylight in our room…do you realize how nice that is, to get real sunlight from above, in what’s normally a dark hotel room? 😍 Fantastic!! 👍🏼😁

Josh Herrman

A bit pricey It’s unique The interior is a little weird

Place was very clean The bed was soft and comfortable The room was pretty stuffy without AC We think that they control the temp even though there is a thermostat in the room but we turned it down but it didn’t help any Breakfast was lame with weak coffee Yes, this place is unique and has some character but we didn’t think that it was worth the price We probably wouldn’t stay there again having experienced the place now

Jim McWilliams

Quite a find We quite literally stumbled onto Higher Ground and what a find it is Beautiful accomodations, immaculately clean, comfortable beds, a wonderful night’s sleep, and a facility that is a delight to explore

So tastefully decorated throughout Did I mention breakfast? Home cooked sausage and eggs, OJ, and more And the owners are on site seeing that you are delighted with your stay Very nice, interesting people It’s worth ten stars but, alas, I am limited to just five

II traveled from Florida and needed a place to stay for 4 days Check in was a breeze the desk attendant was very polite and friendly I was thoroughly surprised as my room was absolutely spotless I stated to one of my children that I’ve never seen such a white tub in my life lol

During my 4 day stay I had no issues whatsoever I met 2 of the office attendants and both were very very friendly Did not have any experience with the laundry and lounge area but both areas looked clean I know that I seem to use the word clean an awful lot but that is the number one Thing I look at when I am looking for a place to stay The parking lot was very well lit and I spotted several of the cameras I felt very safe in the area the bed was super comfortable and all of the towels an bedding were in like new condition I did not use the stove or microwave as I did not need them but the refrigerator again was spotless I would recommend this hotel in a minute If ever back in the Kansas City area I will be staying here again

After the longest, hottest day driving w two little kids…to find this gem on a whim was the best!!! Jackie and the front desk is the sweetest, most professional person I have meet in so long Good customer service is so rare nowadays, and she went ABOVE and beyond to make us feel “at home” My Place Hotel I hope you know what an impeccable representative you have greeting your guests! I am a loyal My Hotel fan now and will be staying at them our next two nights on our trip!


Gushing reviews for this place MUST be fake! First, this hotel is an “economy extended stay “(says this right on the sign),had I known this I would have never booked it but since it was $140 a night I thought can’t be that bad Well,this place is run down (starting with the dirty/worn carpet in the lobby), rooms aren’t horrible but are quite humid and uncomfortable as the a/c units aren’t great But mostly the area feels sketchy

I felt very uncomfortable with my packed car parked in the lot overnight after I saw some men just loitering Can’t believe I paid that much for this place that doesn’t even offer free breakfast The staff was friendly and can’t help that this place is low-rent
