Guest reviews for Residence Inn by Marriott Kansas City Independence

I liked the fact that all of us were able to stay in one room (2bdrm suite). I didn't like the fact that there were charges that I was made unaware of until check in. I came to town due to my mother being rushed to the hospital and had prepaid for the hotel stay. I was told upon check in that I had to pay $10 just to park in THEIR lot. The deposit of $20 wasn't bad I guess in case we needed to charge something to the hotel. However, BOTH were charged separately.

Dirty and poor customer service

Bathroom was dirty, dishes were dirty, the cleaning crew couldn't get any cleaning done between smoke breaks, I will never stay here again, I'd rather sleep in my truck.

Not roomy enough for 2 or more.

The Residence Inn in Independence accepts pets, has quiet hallways, offers a coin-op laundry for $* per load (whether wash or dry), and is clean, but the parking lot is short on space and the room we had was way too small for the cost! The room even felt cramped after putting a table in the closet and pushing the armchair into a corner. Could have reserved 2 rooms at another hotel (with a microwave and mini-fridge) for the same cost and gotten better results for the 3 of us. Trying to cook on an electric stovetop in a kitchen that had minimal counter space and limited kitchenware resulted in going out to eat more often than not. Didn't expect a full kitchen but I have stayed in other suite hotels that have been much bigger and more convenient than this one was. The bed appeared to be closer to a full size rather than a queen sized bed and the pull out couch was flat and uncomfortable. We found additional linens for the pull out couch in the closet upon arrival but no pillows available unless requested. Maid service was very good (except for 1) though, so we tipped. The shower was decent but the drain was not working even after maintenance came. It required quite some time to drain between use. The continental breakfast lacked any real diversity. Powdered eggs, sausage, toast, waffle, etc. Again, nice staff. Although a decent place to stay, for over $* per night, you should really get a better and bigger space than this. If use of a kitchen is what you seek, a microwave and fridge would do just as well!

A + Hotel

This hotel was outstanding. It exceeded all of my family's expectations. From the large assortment of items on the breakfast buffet to the indoor pool everything was just great. We really liked having a kitchen with appliances so we could prepare some of our own meals. I would recommend this hotel to anyone - one of the best!
