We had an absolutely perfect weekend here!. The Innkeeper is friendly, knowledgeable, and very eager to please. She recommended places for us to eat and to see and even helped us secure a Groupon for a specific location for dinner. The bed was comfortable and the linens were so soft and inviting. They book local artists for guest entertainment on the weekends. Breakfast was delicious, and we had a wonderful time getting to know the other guests at the table. This kind of experience cannot be found at a hotel and was absolutely perfect. We will definitely be coming back
We are so happy that you had a great time. We look forward to your return stay. Try to make it to our Italian Event on July 26th. Thanks so much for the review, Pam

The house was very nice and clean, and the hospitality was great! It is close enough to KC to be close to all the fun stuff but just far enough off the beaten path. As far as "in town" B&Bs goes, this is the best one I have stayed at. The hostess is a very wonderful person.
Thanks for the review. We have been doing some changes in the decor since you were here. So come back and see us soon. We love our loyal guest/friends. Hope to see you soon! Pam French Innkeeper

We went to Woodstock Inn to celebrate our anniversary. Our room was cute and the breakfasts were delicious, but was not as welcoming as other B&Bs we have stayed at. We had a nice weekend, but probably will not return.
We are happy you enjoyed your room and the breakfast. Sorry you did not feel as welcome as you would have liked. I do strive to make people as comfortable as possible. I do hope you will come back and stay again. Warmest wishes Pam French

The location of this inn is great. It was an easy drive to the Nelson-Atkins Art Museum & the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. Also close to the "Square" & Truman Tours. The inn was spotless, nicely decorated, and breakfasts were wonderful. Pam, the innkeeper was most hospitable.

Adorable decor and very friendly owner. Breakfast was fine, one morning okay the next great, so it balanced out. Cleanliness was not up to par, bathroom drawers were dirty w/ toothpaste from previous people, no bags in trash cans so we felt bad throwing things away such as q-tips etc. Just not a clean feeling when in the room, but not a dirty feeling either. We may have expected hotel clealiness (we stay in 4stars normally) so it may have been unfair that we were judging it based upon our other experiences. We ended up having silverfish on our bedding the 1st day, wasn't a big deal to us because we understood older homes get these, but when it became more than a dozen and they were large we had to ask Pam to change our bedding, we felt it should have been done when we first found the issue, and once we did ask, we felt to be a bother to her as she complained of other problems going on and how she had many errands to still run. We explained we weren't gong to bed yet so we could wait, the owner got onto it right away w/ out any problems or complaints though. Just surprised at how the situation was dealt with, after it was dealt with there were still no apologies for the issue, though we did make it clear we understood older homes get them. I do think that if any other couple had been in there they would have left due to the issue, they were fortunate we didn't raise rukus after we spoke w/ some friends, they all said they would have left demanding $$ back. Overall, it was an okay stay, not horrible at all, but nothing to rave about or send friends and family rshing over to stay at either.
We are very sorry to know that your staying at B&B was not at the level you desired. We are sorry because we really try to do the best we can to offer all the possible services to the customers, and we also enjoy immensely the opportunities to speak with the customers and to listen to their problems and expectations. Of course a B&B is a homey place, and not a 5 star hotel. This does not justify some little problems, problems we have tried to resolve in the interest of B&B itself and of the customers too. The building is old, and notwithstanding we put a lot of attention in cleaning something “wrong” can happen in some exceptional circumstances. In fact our standard of cleaning is considered high (as many customers in their reviews have mentioned). However, we appreciate the positive criticism because we absolutely want to improve our organization and the customer/satisfaction.

Amazing facility -- very warm, inviting, and home-like.

My wife and I wanted a relaxing weekend away before our baby arrives, and that's exactly what we got! Our host, Pam, was gracious as can be between the huge breakfasts and warm hospitality. We'll be back!

My husband and I recently spent two nights in The Italian Suite. Our stay was very nice. The Woodstock Inn B & B is located near the downtown square and it provides a nice size parking lot that is located off of the main road. The Italian Suite is located on the first floor. It has a 2 person jacuzzi tub in a separate room near a large fireplace. The suite also has a king size bed with a separate bathroom that includes both a tub and a shower. Pam was very friendly and helpful during our stay. The breakfasts and snacks were yummy. She was very good about accommodating food restrictions. We were very pleased with our stay and highly recommend this place to others.

My wife and I have been to many countries and many states and I believe that the service and accomendations or second to none. Pam is the best host one could ask for. Her breakfast and personality are both warm and deliciouis. The room we had was very romantic and private. The warm cookies and water every night were perfect. In fact we couldn't eat all the cookies so we took them when we left. Pam recommended the couuple's message and boy was it worth it. They did a wonderful job of making us feel comfortable and relaxed. We loved it so much we will be returning in June 2012 and getting a couple's message. Can't wait. Thank you Pam for making this trip so wonderful. Steve and Patti.
Thanks Steve & Patti. We look forward to your return in June. It's exciting to see familiar faces and get to know people better. See you SOON!! Pam

Thanks so much for the wonderful weekend! The room was beautiful, food was delicious, and you were very hospitable & accommodating. Unlike, when we stay in a hotel. We had nice soft towels and robes as well as 2-ply bath tissue. We will, definitely recommend Woodstock Inn to our friends. Thanks so much, May God bless you with many more customers. Love , M & K

This was a delightful spot in the heart of Independence, close to downtown and the Truman library and homes. We had a great stay. Pam's breakfasts were great and she went out of her way to help us out especially since it was a very busy Labor Day weekend in town, which we did not expect. Her care and guidance were most appreciated! Would definitely recommend this one to anyone in the Independence, MO area.

We wanted a quiet getaway and we got it here. Pam the Manager was a gem. She spoiled us with hospitality, good food and good conversation. We had never stayed at a B&B before and we will definitely do so again after this experience. The room was very nice and the jet tub was the best, next to the most comfortable bed I have slept in at an out of town getaway. Highly recommend this place.

We drove up to this beautiful home, stepped inside to the smell of fresh cookies, people enjoying cards at a grand dining table & amazing features! The stay was beautiful-the spa tub was luxurious, Pam was warm & friendly and made us feel welcome & pampered. We hated to have to leave. This place is on our 'we must go back' list. Thanks!

We decided to make the 5 hour trip to KC to celebrate our anniversary and found this B&B on the internet. We were not disappointed with the Woodstock and loved our stay here. The rooms, of those we sneaked a peek, were just like the pictures and the French Boudior was a perfect room for our occasion. The owners and staff were the best part-very friendly, helpful and a pleasure to meet. We hope to visit this B&B sometime in the near future and will recommend it to friends and family. We loved our trip to KC and had a great anniversary!

Two nights were not enough! We loved our room -- totally comfortable & appointed beautifully. The Inn is elegant and charming, the courtyard gorgeous. Excellent breakfasts, too! Todd & Patricia are incredibly nice & helpful. We were completely pampered!

My sister and I stayed in the Magnolia Room during my recent visit to Kansas City. It was the perfect room for two family members to sit back and relax. We took a peak at most of the rooms and they were all very nicely decorated. We enjoyed the breakfast and company of the owner and other guests the morning of our checkout. Would definitely stay again!

Upon deciding to see KC at the last minute we were pleasantly surprised to find such a treasure. Not only were the accommodations outstanding but the friendly owners helped us to plan out our stay and took the time to map it all out for us. Breakfast each morning was definitely something to look forward to as we got to know the other guests staying at the Inn...not to mention the offerings were scrumptious. I know we will be back many times. Put this one on your list of must stay list. Jamie and Jeffrey.

I loved everything about the Woodstock Inn and also Independence. While it's easy to spend time going into KC from here, the little town of Independence is historic and really fun. The Woodstock Inn is an easy walk to many of the historic sites of Truman fame. I stayed in the Oriental Suite, with a fabulously hand-carved bed and one of the nicest whirlpool tubs ever. Loved Todd's breakfasts in the morning - especially the fresh baked bread. Todd and Patricia are fun and interesting, and easy to talk to. The inn is great for business travelers too. They even provide cell phones for each guest's use. WOW. I was on business during my stay, and it really helped.

My husband and I spent one night in the Wedgewood Suite. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We can't say enough good things about the place. Patricia and Todd are wonderful Innkeepers. They were very nice and very accomodating. We highly recommend the Woodstock to everyone.

Patricia and Todd are great innkeepers, who make you feel right at home but never intrude on your privacy. They know everything about the Independence and KC area, and are full of great suggestions. Excellent value, too!
