There is no way this place is the first best hotel in Sedalia. Very 1980s. Outdated. The indoor pool is below average. Great fried chicken at lunch. The parking can be difficult. Don't have much else to say.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 15 February 2017

It was more than 16 years when I returned to the Best Western State Fair Inn (motel) at South Highway 65 and 32nd Street in Sedalia, Missouri, on Valentine's Day (February 14) 2017. Even though my wife and I live in Sedalia, I opted to surprise her with a Valentine's Day gift of an overnight stay at the Best Western...

Located in south Sedalia with easy access to main highways. Ample parking with close access to rooms. This is an older property but it is well maintained and updated so no reason to avoid. We found the breakfast with more selection and quality than average with nice layout and more than adequate space. Coffee, including decaf, always available and USA...

We stayed for 1 night at this hotel, arriving fairly late in the evening and leaving very early. I'm not usually a fan of Best Westerns, because they're so inconsistent from property to property. However, I was surprised to find this one was clean, comfortable, and as modern/up-to-date as I would have hoped for. I'd probably stay there again.

Over the years we have stayed in numerous small town hotels as we hiked the Katy and Rock Island Trails. Usually what we look for it is a clean, inexpensive, dog friendly hotel. This time we hit a home run! The location makes it very easy to get around town. Although it is an older motel, the Best Western has...

The hotel was clean and very safe. The staff goes out of their way to be helpful. I probably should not say this, but even the maintenance man helped me upstairs with some heavy displays!

In addition to having nice rooms, good restaurant and very well kept indoor pool, the hotel staff is very courteous and helpful. This is an excellent hotel for a business or family stay. All guest rooms have relatively easy access to the parking area, restaurant and conference rooms.

I enjoyed the amenities and especially the friendliness of the staff. The food is excellent as they have a chef on the premises. They make breakfast for free and then have a very reasonable buffet for lunch and a menu available for dinner. The restaurant is just off of the courtyard where you can also eat your dinner if you...
