The Inn @ OPHELIA'S... Ideally located above Ophelia's restaurant. A boutique hotel, seven rooms and one suite. Perfect for the business or pleasure traveler. Located on the historic Independence Square where the Westward trails began and President Truman called home. The Independence Square has been recently revitalized. With a great selection of restaurants, shops, bowling, movie theater, salons, Pilates studio and the Truman Library near by you can't go wrong. It's a great weekend getaway or if you are doing business at the Jackson County Courthouse or with the City.

Super cute area with shopping nearby featuring the courthouse at the center of the square. Parking is on the street or in a lot about a block away, however this is not well indicated. When we first arrived, there was a bit of panic because they put someone else into our room (the King Suite) not realizing they had more than 1 reservation (?). Nevertheless, we were planning on eating dinner anyway, which we did while they were sorting out the room situation. Breakfast requests need to be filled out by 9pm- we made the deadline on the first day and had a wonderful meal. The 2nd day we got in late, but the staff that were working early made us our breakfast without the request, which was very nice of them, but not the same quality as the first day. The room was lovely, the bed super comfy. The remote/TV/Satellite/cable were not synching well, but we weren't there to watch TV anyway! Everyone was very nice, but I dinged them on the room mix up and on the value, as I don't believe $167/night when only 2 rooms were taken is reasonable. Regarding the dining experience: the waitstaff made sure to tell us that we were at the only 5 star restaurant around. When I ordered wine, the bottle was opened and the glass generously filled-no offer to taste before the pour, and no room left in the glass for aeration. Basics for any 3+ star establishments. The food was wonderful, delicious and presented well.

As we were celebrating our anniversary, we were excited that this B&B would have more privacy, however the service was terribly disappointing. We booked the corner suite online but the owner didn't put our reservation in the book onsite, so the restaurant staff wasn't expecting us. That made our check-in awkward and uncomfortable. We were looking forward to the 4pm snack as the restaurant menu I had seen online looked interesting but we couldn't dine there for dinner because we had other plans. Unfortunately, we could never find the snack. There wasn't a menu in the room either and we ended up ordering food elsewhere. It's a lovely idea, having the rooms above the restaurant and the room was very clean, quiet and GORGEOUS, but for the price the service needs to be much, much better.

My wife and I stayed here for a quick getaway weekend. We were pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness of the rooms and the quality of the inn. We had dinner Friday night in the restaurant and it was wonderful. Saturday breakfast had several choices for us. The Sunday brunch was absolutely amazing. This inn is a little unique... kinda like a hybrid of a boutique hotel and a B&B. We enjoyed the stay and will be back.

We got my son and new daughter in law this room for their wedding night, as the chapel where they married was down the street, and also had the reception dinner at the inn's restaurant. It was outstanding!! Everything went without a hitch, staff was accommodating, and the dinner was divine. My daughter in law said it was the best meal she had ever had at a restaurant, and the whole experience provided for a stress free event and memory! Thanks, Ophelias!!

Although there was an issue with the reservation for our suite, the management team more than made up for it.

Our room was beautiful as well as spacious and comfortable. It had everything we needed from the fridge and microwave to the single serving coffee maker. The staff were friendly and helpful. They made us feel like we were family. The restaurant serves fresh, we'll crafted, delicious dishes. Sunday brunch is a must!

We were given dinner and night stay as a gift. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and live music. The room was nice and clean. The stay included the Sunday brunch which was exceptional. We will stay again.

Breakfast is not their priority. It's really a set of lovely rooms, but you go to their restaurant for a breakfast, which is OK, but not special.

The room was nice, and generally what we expected. We definitely felt like the minimal interaction we had with staff didn't seem as warm as a typical B&B; the manager seemed more involved with the restaurant side of the business than the inn. At no time did we feel like there was great service, but it's also not like there was anything significant lacking. We just felt like we were on our own, not being taken care of by a B&B atmosphere.
