Hugo, the front desk man, was awesome! He was so helpful and nice getting us directions to restaurants we wanted to eat at. He even called them for us to make sure they were open and if we needed reservations. He was excellent and very much appreciated!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NativeKansan engaging staff aand more room than expected
Staff interacted with us as we came and went. Not intrusive, just friendly and informative. Room was bigger than expected with pull out sofa couch and sitting are separate from bed area. Everything was clean, only disappointment was how fast the chocolate chip cookies disappeared in the evening. Easy place to travel around KC from I-70.

I had stayed at a competitor's hotel in a club level recently. The breakfast and service at this Holiday Inn Express was much better and was greatly appreciated. Room was roomy and comfortable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SuefromGB Love this hotel
I only have two complaints....the bed is way too firm & the Wi-Fi leaves something to be desired. It worked in most cases but not for certain games. We paid too much money to not be able to access what we wanted on Wi-Fi. We stay at this hotel several times a year, this is the first time we've had any issues. We were there for 3 nights, had it only been one night, I wouldn't be complaining. Upgrade your Wi-Fi, please.

This was my first time here. It was a planned stop during travel. There were some minor mix-ups at the front desk, that were quickly resolved to my satisfaction. The ENTIRE staff was professional and friendly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Suzyqtwou Very nice for the most part
The king room we stayed in was very nice. The things I noticed were in the hallway window next to our room, dirt or something black in the window track, and dust. smudges on the coffee table in the lobby. Also, computer in the lobby would not let me access my email...something about cookies...first hotel ever that this happened at. They need to pay attention to detail, then I would give it 5 stars.

After a long day of a traveling we were able to quickly check in and had a wonderful night sleep. The hotel was easy to find and the breakfast was reasonable. Would stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by thadeus79 Excellent!!!
The hotel and the room were very nice but I think what makes this a great place to stay is the staff!!! The manager was very nice and accommodating and the front desk/continental bar staff were very kind and hospitable!!! An added bonus to this hotel is there are a few restaurants right there next to the hotel. I will definitely stay at this hotel again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Terri7721 BEST Continental breakfast I've ever seen.
Biscuits and gravy, pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, hard boiled eggs, hot cinnamon rolls, milk, oj, apple juice, cereal, fruit, and more - and delicious! Breakfast foods and eating area maintained extremely well by a very nice young lady. Very pleased staying here since we like to walk daily and there is a bike/walk path very close. The room was clean, the hotel was quiet. The employees were friendly and helpful. Loved the SALT water pool - Scott told us this was new! No chlorine smell on our clothes and skin. Was a good place to stay!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by uuclerk13 Adjacent to a greenway
Take advantage of access, just a block away from the hotel, to over 20 miles of paved greenway along a tree-lined creek. Great if you have your bike, a good leg stretch walk or run if just your feet.

When in the Kansas City area this is where I stay. The staff is friendly and the rooms are comfortable. The young lady at the breakfast bar is always pleasant and maintains the breakfast bar with a good variety and always with refills.

Absolutly the worst Holiday Inn I've ever stayed in, Nothing was clean and the staff was not friendly, I will sleep in my car before I would stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by earl24 Starting to get it right
I have been staying at this hotel periodically for 8-years
quit for a few years because of prices. They also were very
bad about trying to give frequent stayers requested accommodation
locations. Last several stays have been much better with both prices and attention to room preferences

What a great time we had. Even though it snowed in May!!! Got a chance to speak to Scott. He was very helpful and kind. More hotels need a staff like this one. Was a bit expensive but people like Scott make up for that!! See you in June and September to see the Royals play again!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FogHornLegHorn My home away from home
I travel to the Independence and Kansas City areas routinely and always choose to stay at the Holiday Inn Express Suites Independence. In the past, I have stayed at other hotels around the city and have found that they don't have the same "at home" feeling I get when I stay at the Holiday Inn Express Suites Independence. The staff is very personable and attentive to every detail from a great breakfast experience to the cleanliness of the rooms. I have been touched with kindness from Scott, Jennifer, Richard, Tiffany, Myria, and so many more staff that really take the time to get to know you which always make my stays there very special. Just like the title of my review, this is my home away from home! Thanks Holiday Inn Express Suites Independence, you guys are all great!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Linda1962 Could use a litle renovation but overall great HI Express
Beds were not as comfortable as other (probably newer) Express hotels but it was just what I expected. However, pay attention to local events going on. HI Express takes advantage and increases the prices. The price of the room was substantially higher than I am use to paying for an Express.

Room was clean and very comfortable. Continental breakfast was very good, and there was a very good variety. Pool was a little small, but that wouldn't stop us from coming back. All in all, we would definitely stay again if we're in the area.
