Kansas City, Missouri
Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Cozy furnishings, comfortable rooms, everything you need is on-site. Loved the train museum located on the property and the train lookout area behind the property. The continental breakfast was truly continental (packaged pastries and waffles), but was fine if you aren't gluten-free. The only negative is there were not near enough electrical outlets.

From the museum-quality train exhibits, displays, memorabilia, and décor, to the immaculately spotless rooms and common areas, this place is an absolute delight. We...

Cleaniest hotel I have ever stayed at. Even with the train tracks close to the hotel, we all got a great nights sleep. Close enough to Truman State and well worth the drive. The decor of the entire hotel is so well done and interesting.

Late evening rest stop on an extended family road trip. My wife and I were very pleasantly surprised to find a hotel of this cleanliness and well maintained in a very small Missouri community. Great stop for any avid railroad fan as the hotel furnishings include an extensive collection of train memorabilia.

“Very clean!!”

“If there's space, ask for a room at the back so you don't get light shining through the window at night. Also, remember this is by a train station (hence the attraction), so you may want to set the room fan to "on" at night to drown out some of the train noise.”
