After reading unfavorable reviews I was a bit hesitant to stay there but my experience was 100% positive, and I would gladly stay there again. I was greeted warmly in a clean, modern lobby, and was given a free upgrade to a king-size bed. Granted it is not a brand-new building, but the hallways were spotless and didn't smell of smoke, and the carpets had no stains. My room was perfectly clean, the A/C blew very cold air on the hottest day of the summer, and there was no noise from any of the adjacent rooms. The bed was firm and very comfortable, and the bathroom was immaculate. The TV, clock, iron, radio, outlets and refrigerator all worked well. I truly have no idea why there have been bad reviews of this hotel, but it was way beyond my expectations, and a real bargain, besides. I felt completely safe in the parking lot, and the access to the highway and many restaurants was excellent. Red Roof Inn in Independence is a very good, no-frills place to stay.

We had a great experience in this 165 year historic home. Very comfortable and secluded feel. We stayed in the Shirley Gamble room which was very spacious and decorated beautifully. Flat screen TV, fireplace, snack basket, and even soft comfortable robes. They do it right! Our host Melanie was the real deal and is what really has sold us on returning here in the future. You can tell she is very proud of the area and has a wealth of knowledge of the town and suggestions to enhance your visit to Historic Independence. Breakfast was 5 Star....awesome!
