Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Unicorn80 Great Staff and Service
We were here for the December 2013 holidays. Our 14 day stay was awesome. The food was very good and the staff in the kitchen and in the office were friendly and ready to help. Loved the happy hours! We will definitely make this our home away from home again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PriorityClubUnrecognized Nothing out of the ordinary
I think the most unimpressive thing was not being recognized as a Priority Club member at check in. Had a small issue with the in room air but that resolved before maintenance could make it to the room.
The room is good sized and allows for adequate moving around. The kitchenette is nice even for the overnight stay. Even at full cap capacity the hotel was quite - our room was at the end of a hall too.
The breakfast left much to be desired if expecting more than frozen eggs and bacon. Good grab and go items if in a hurry.
In summary I think that as a Priority Club member the recognition was grossly overlooked and under appreciated.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MP5000 This place is fantastic!
I'm familiar with many hotels, and NONE have had as great service, quality, or comfort as The Staybridge Suites. The beds were super comfy. The rooms included fridges, dishwashers, stoves, microwaves. They also have a pool and gym. Also, complimentary breakfast, dinner, and beer! Can't pass that up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bsahag000 great place great staf!!
I had stayed here during a trip for work with many of my fellow coworkers. During our trip the staff at staybridge made us fell right at home. Everything from the morning breakfast to the evening dinners that they put on are great for those long days when all you want is to get back and relax.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Xfatman Amazing until.......
I'm a traveling compliance officer and trainer spending about 140 nights a year, in the Midwest. I travel with a complete mobile office, computer, printer, scanner, laminator, projector and cameras both video and still. In other words a trunk full, I assemble the office almost every night to prepare for the next day. Which leads to my rating, in the AM everything packed and ready to go I went down stairs for a Bellman's Cart, the night before two were in the lobby , I had used one to move to my room. None could be found, after inquiring their whereabouts. The answer I revived from the young lady at the front desk seemed a little funny. After the third trip to my room I noticed the room right behind the check in, yep you guessed it both carts loaded full. So I inquired again after the fifth trip as I handed over my key about the carts again an answer just a little different from the first but still not the truth, when I ask her to turn around she glanced back and closed the door quickly nothing else was ever said. So great place but about a five on the Pinocchio scale for the truth.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ophelia80 Nice hotel but unprofessional reception
Although we felt the hotel was nice, we were disappointed that an apparent friend of the host on duty was allowed to linger in the reception area with a bottle of beer in hand. It simply gave the hotel an unprofessional taste.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RMB13 There are so many things to recommend about this place
We were in Independence to visit family. Our son looked at this place and emailed us that it was very nice and also in a safe area. (There are a lot of stores and restaurants close by too.)
When we arrived it was late evening. The staff greeted us with a smile and when we saw our room we were delighted. It was clean and welcoming. Our kitchen was spotless and had utensils, plates, cups, pots and pans, etc. So many things were available to make our stay comfortable.
The breakfast buffet is quite a buffet. Eggs, waffles, fruit, bacon... I could go on. There were 'light meals' Tuesday through Thursday evenings where there was fresh salad, meat and a vegetable. The ladies in this area were friendly and accommodating.
When we found we were extending our stay, we were so comfortable with our accommodations that we continued our stay there.
We hope to be back in the area in the near future and plan to stay at Staybridge when we return.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wacny Great stay if you have a car!
Great hotel. Very clean rooms. Friendly and helpful (gave good clear directions and printed off maps). One downside is the location (no fault of the hotel's): it is a good 40 min drive to the airport, so if you don't have a car, I suggest you rent one (taxi/shuttle costs about $70). It could also use some better signage from 39th st (the hotel is on 39th pl)since you cannot see the hotel from the main road. Decent hot breakfast served in the morning, but arrive early as there are not many seats! Great stay!

I have been staying at the StayBridge in Independance since it first opened a bit over 3 Years ago. I am there for a few days every 5 or 6 weeks. The staff are great and the facilitity is always clean and neat, the breakfast is good and it is well located.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnandKerri We felt at home!
My wife and I adopted a newborn baby girl and the first place we went to when we were all released from the hospital was the Staybridge KC, Independence. We had to stay in MO for an extra week due to state law and paperwork. So, although we were dying to get home, we truly felt as though we were in a home away from home. Lindsay, the general manager, and her staff went above and beyond to take care of us. They gave us a crib for our daughter to sleep in. We had fresh coffee and breakfast included every morning. There were drinks and snacks available at all tiimes. There was a light dinner fare and complimentary beer or wine a few nights during the week. And, most importantly, we had free use of the laundry facilities. My wife was able to work out in the fitness center directly connected to the laundry room. The place was quiet and well-maintained. The personalities of the front desk staff, the kitchen staff, and the cleaning staff were wonderful. Everyone was so nice. We didn't meet one person who seemed miserable doing their jobs. They made us feel at home! Those in charge of running various Staybridge Suites across the country should take a lesson from Lindsay and her staff. They are doing things right! Thank you, John and Kerri.

Our family enjoyed our stay at Staybridge Suites. From the moment we arrived, we were warmly welcomed by the staff. Melissa was outstanding in handling our room accommodations. Hospitality gathering was a very nice added touch to the stay. I must say that all of the staff were very professional and seemed to enjoy their jobs. This property is in a prime location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SmileGal Relaxing weekend
We drove to Independence for a weekend on short notice, and was so glad we chose this hotel. The bed was SO comfortable, the room very clean, and the staff was great. The breakfast buffet was the best I have had in a long time. Everything was hot and wonderful. There is a very nice courtyard by the pool. The hotel is close to the interstate, but far enough away for no traffic noise. We will stay there again the next time we visit the KC area.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BCR01 Cleaning staff had much to be desired and some of front desk staff
I asked on a couple of occasions to have my room swept and that never happened until the 3rd request, and was then done very poorly. The floors were not very clean to begin with.
Our vehicle was broken into at the hotel along with at least 1 other vehicle. It was parked within feet of the front door and the window was shattered. We were offered a sweeper to clean up glass, but the front desk was less than responsive or sympathetic or helpful.
Not sure I would recommend staying at this location again.
I am also a IHG rewards member and was never recognized for this.

All 5 rooms were nice, we especially liked the outdoor area (pool and gas fire pit) and breakfast.
Best of all - Melissa (manager) was really helpful and professional!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sue3 Room great! Only complaint was breakfast.
Friendly staff and room was very nice. Clean! Especially enjoyed the fresh pineapple at breakfast.
My only complaint was sausage was the only meat served with eggs for three days and the hot water for tea and oatmeal was always barely luke warm.
Also, the hard boiled eggs which we much prefer were only offered once in three days. I think these were a ordering problem because the next day after a big delivery, the hard boiled eggs were served.

Our room was very nice and the lobby was attractive. As for breakfast: Sunday's breakfast was quite good. Monday's breakfast featured what looked like pre-made omelettes. They didn't look too appetizing. Overall, though, a very nice stay.

I was totally 100% satisfied with my first stay here at the Independence/MO and if ever come back this way I'll be sure to check in at this Staybridge Suite. The front desk staff were very accommodating, keep up the great hospitality!

I used to be in charge of scheduling and running meetings and conferences for a trade association. I have been a guest at literally hundreds of hotels, from five star to dead star, across the U.S. The staff at Staybridge Independence may be the most friendly and attentive I have ever had the pleasure to encounter. I have yet to run across an employee who isn't gracious and helpful. I would recommend the hotel to anyone...and I have!

I am a road warrior and traveling has become tiring. The staff goes beyond the call of duty to make my multiple stays as stress less as possible. Although I had several requests that I thought were unusual they "made it happen". I had planned to move into the city to be closer to my assignment, but I will continue to stay at this Staybridge.
