    « Very Good Hotel »

    Although the room was on the small side, the bed and pillows were comfortable, the bathroom and rest of the room was spotless. My husband enjoyed his breakfast, and the attendant in the breakfast room got me some gluten free cereal. all in all a very pleasant stay.

    « Great value »

    Very pleased with his hotel. It exceeded our expectations. Quiet, clean, comfortable rooms, nice breakfast area and good food options. Easy access to the interstate, and there are several dining options...and a Starbucks close by! Will stay there again when in the area!

    « Good nights sleep »

    Lobby was nice and dining area was good. The receptionist was very helpful and friendly.. Neither of the key cards worked, had to carry my luggage with me, go up to front desk and get them keyed again. The buildings were older, The only entrance to the room was outside entrances. Multiple buildings, my room was on the backside with no parking spaces on that side. The room was very small and tight, also the bathroom was small. The bed was nice and the room was clean.

    « Not impressed like normally am »

    Got a room with a view of a wooden fence, it should have been cleaned much better, and the bed was hard as a rock. Probably the worst experience I have ever had at any Best Western motel. It wasn't horrible, but I just expect better from BW

    « Meh »

    It was cheap. But don't be fooled. Newly remodeled refers to the lobby not the guest rooms. My check in was great - check out was snotty. Wear your flip flops in the shower. Convenient to numerous other hotels and restaurants.

    « Not as bad as the reviews »

    Yes, this is a motel with outside entrances. I saw many families and women staying here and felt very safe and secure. Rooms are very small. No room for my morning yoga. Beds are old and worn but ok. Room was very clean with fridge and microwave. Might stay again. Still looking for the best budget minded place in Joplin.

    « Second stay at hotel and it was another restful night. »

    Hotel is just off I-44 in Joplin and very easy to find. Many places to eat close by, not far from shopping centers. They have upgraded the look of hotel since my last stay and rooms are still very well maintained. At check in Brad was very helpful and his awesome attitude showed how much he cared about your business. I was offered an up grade but being very tired just took my original room. Bed is not like the one at home but still got a good nights rest.

    « Nice!!!! »

    Made reservations, when we got there @ check in time we had a problem, room not yet ready. Had been booked the night before, so they were a little behind. But the front staff very nice & pleasant. We left our number & a short time later they called us. We had a pet room in which was nice, met our needs. Was pleasantly well kept. Not much of an area for pets but not a big deal. The 2 gentlemen at desk were the best!!! We spent a bit of time talking with them, so nice. You don't get that very often. I'd recommend anyone to stay here. You can't miss it!!! It's right off the highway, was a great stay!!! Breakfast area very well maintained, very small area. And the grab & go bag was appreciated. Thank you best western!!! We look forward to another visit

    « Room was compact, but everything we needed. »

    Weren't sure we were going to be able to find a room because of sporting event traffic, but they had a single left. You could tell the room was a little older, it was compact, but very clean, well-appointed (fridge, microwave, flat-screen, nice vanity) and well-cared for. Staff were friendly and accommodating which was greatly appreciated after almost 12 hours on the road. Good water pressure and plenty of hot water in the shower. Excellent bed. Breakfast was pretty good for a free hotel breakfast - included at least two protein options. Even though most rooms in town were full, we still got a really good rate here. Wish the black-out curtains were a little more effective - lots of light in the parking lot.

    « One night stay »

    This is a pretty decent best western for the price. We stayed one night and were very satisfied. The front desk clerk Clayton was very funny and great at his job. This guy could be the face of best western and have a successful career. The room itself was small and straightforward, but very comfortable and clean. There's nothing fancy here but it met all of our requirements and expectations. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this location to friends and family. If you need a simple, cozy, straightforward hotel room for the night this place will do you well.

    « Great Value! »

    We needed a place to stay while passing through on vacation. Booked this hotel mainly on price, because we just needed a place for the night. Very surprised. We were not expecting much, but the room was clean, cozy, and updated. Access room from parking lot. Staff was super. Able to walk to nearby restaurants. Cannot go wrong for the price.

    « Had a good stay »

    We had a bit of a mixup with changing our reservation, however the manager Laurie was very understanding and took care of everything. Room was a bit small but met our needs. Breakfast selection was very good with both hot and cold items. We would for sure stay again if we find ourselves in Joplin.

    « Outstanding Best Western Hotel in Joplin »

    The Oasis Best Western in Joplin, Missouri is a very nice, modern facility, with easy access to I-44, and downtown Joplin. It is well managed and the employees are a pleasure to deal with. We spent 2 nights there and had no complaints, in fact the front desk went out of their way to help us out on locating some restaurants and travel plans.

    « Clean »

    All the rooms open to the outside but the parking is very well lit so it seems safe enough. The room was not large but was adequate. It was clean which is my Number 1 concern. The front desk staff was courteous.

    « Will not book a room here again »

    Reserved 2 rooms-@checkin were told we canceled them and hotel booked. Staff zero help, calling mgr-waste of time. We had to find a hotel at 10 pm with our three grandchildren. We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn and was well worth the extra cost based on other reviews we read. Rennovations can't makeup for bad service, and dirty rooms although we obviously can't verify that part.

    « relaxing »

    I'm on the road a lot, when I get to a room I'm ready to relax. Ive always been able to do that at BEST WESTERN. and always get up to a good breakfast.thank you BW.the people are always very helpful,they treat you like family,not just at Joplin ,but at every BW I stay at.the gentleman saw what I was driving( a box truck),told me where I could park, and put me in a room close to my truck so I wouldn't have to carry my bags far. my stay was RELAXING

    « Relax before work »

    Stayed two nights, area was very quite staff was polite. The laundry facilities were free and worked well. The exercise area has 3 different machines and dump bells with a TV and towels. I was disappointed to see the room doors access from the outside.

    « very bad »

    We tried to come early on our trip and check in but was rudely said no early check in. We the came back at 9 pm and ask to check in again and the deck people stared at each other saying that the reservations canceled over the phone yet we do all our booking o line and would of never called and we never got a confirmation of canceled anyway. The lady deck person got snippy with us and and my father made her call the manger and they did nothing to accommodate us and demanded us to leave and call on Monday the manager. This was on a Saturday night Do not go to this hotel.

    « Horrible Management »

    The desk clerk and cleaning staff were very friendly, helpful, and polite. The Pet rooms leave a lot to be desired. There is a small grassy area between the two buildings but the area along the pet rooms is a thin strip of rocks. Very little area to walk a dog. The manager was rude, unfriendly, and seemed to intimidate the staff. If you don't have a pet, I would say the rooms were clean, the bed was comfortable, plenty of pillows, well stocked, nice décor. My only complaint is the franchise owner and the accommodations for those bringing dogs with them.

    « Good if you're not handicapped »

    Nice motel IF YOU'RE NOT HANDICAPPED. "Accessible room" only had one grab bar in tub - nothing else to accommodate a challenged guest. It was clean, staff was nice, breakfast was adequate. If you're perfectly healthy, good place to stay.

    « Updated Nicely »

    I always get a kick out of reading reviews before I stay at a hotel, and then comparing them to my own experience when I'm there. I had noticed on a couple of recent reviews that guests had mentioned that this property was hard to find. Unless you are arriving in the middle of the night during a power outage, there is no way to miss it - it has palm trees for goodness sake. How many hotels in Joplin Missouri have palm trees out front? My first stop was the lobby to check in, and it's been renovated very nicely. It's open and welcoming. On one side there is a large area for breakfast in the morning. I had a first floor room, so the door opened to the outside. The room had all new furniture, a flat screen TV, new carpet, and new wood / laminate floor in front of the vanity, which was also new. It's not Trump Tower, but they did a nice job on the renovation and didn't seem like they cut any corners. The room was quiet, very clean, and the bed was comfortable. Upon checkout, the front desk personnel were friendly and helpful. Another positive is the location. Right off of I44, and walking distance to several restaurants. There's even a Waffle House in the parking lot. Overall a good value, and I would stay here again.

    « Great Hotel »

    Stay here for 3 days, great clean hotel, rates were good and close to everything. Nice pool and breakfast. Staff was helpful and they allowed our dogs.King room was just right size, rooms were on small size but sufficient.

    « Ok Oasis »

    This hotel was at its best in a different era...two stories, exterior doors and exterior stairs. It's obviously old, but they have tried really, really hard to update it. There are new bathroom fixtures, new beds, they've created a little breakfast nook, etc. Its not very expensive, and the receptionist told me she would match any price I'd found online. The personnel were all extremely pleasant. I was going to be more generous with my rating, until we found the roach just prior to checking out...

    « Not what we expected. »

    This place is hard to find. Has a huge sign belonging to a nearby hotel at the front entrance of the drive way. This facility is older. The ice machine was broken while we were there. Housekeeping staff was kind to answer any questions we had.

    « Best Western Joplin Mo »

    We had stopped here on a road trip to Texas. It was difficult to find. This is an older facility. The ice maker in our building was out of order. Must say the one nice thing was that the room was cool upon arrival. Housekeeping staff was very kind in answering any questions we had.

    « Weekend Getaway »

    We had a great time & hotel was what we expected for the price, easy in and out and staff was very friendly and helpful. Very clean lobby and rooms. This was a weekend getaway and we had a great time and would consider staying here again

    « Mostly great »

    The staff, service, beds, etc were all great. The carpet, however was dirty and looked like it needed to be replaced. The room had a very bad smell that didn't go away with use of the AC. The front desk said it was from the humidity (same thing I was told about odor in a Best Western in South Dakota last month), but we've never had that problem with other chain hotels. A nice touch they - they gave us "Grab and Go" bags when we checked out. Each bag had a bottle of water, an apple, and a granola bar. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Would probably stay there again, but I would check the room first.

    « Nice »

    Room nice and clean. Bed comfortable. Room quiet. Breakfast adequate. Front desk staff nice and helpful. The only complaint we had was that the pool is unheated and therefore too cold to enjoy. Pool is unheated and in shadow of building during day so there is no chance to warm up. Would heat pool is the only suggestion I have. Otherwise a nice place. We spent 2 nights here.

    « Great place »

    Very nice and clean. Updated facilities. Good breakfast with decent variety. Parking adequate. The staff is efficient and polite. Location is conveniently near Interstate 44 and Range Lime. Lots of restaurants nearby. Was excellent value but prices rising recently.

    « Staff extremely helpful »

    We reserved 5 rooms for family members traveling to a funeral. Staff helped tremendously with making requests for one member's special accommodations when she called the day before. Good breakfast, rooms were adequate, microwave and fridge in rooms.

    « Dirty Motel »

    I feel sorry for the people who gave this motel decent reviews. I have stayed in a wide variety of motels and hotels and this place is one of the worst. Our room had a door that had previously been kicked in but never replaced so it would not shut properly. My husband had to throw all of his weight against the door to get it to shut. And guess what - this meant the door was hard to open. I am not a fire marshall but my guess would be that this is a FIRE HAZARD. The wifi stinks and you get thrown off constantly. The beds are small with stains on the sheets. The carpet is filthy. If you plan on staying here, purchase a cheap pair of flip flops to wear around the room or your feet will be covered in dirt and hair. The bathroom smelled like a gas station. And the worse thing of all - the thermostat cannot be controlled by the tenant. Listen people- it is Missouri in the middle of the summer. We need the air conditioner to run more than 20 minutes on and 40 minutes off. The best thing I can say about this place is the refrigerator. When you get really hot in the middle of the night, you can open it and try and get a cool breeze. We had friends who stayed across the street at the Candelewood Inn. Opt for the Candlewood and thank me later.

    « A little pricey for what you get. »

    We stayed in the double bed suite in the back of the complex. The room had a separate living area with huge closet and microwave and refrigerator. The room was clean, furniture old, dim lighting, linens thin and worn. The bed was not very comfortable it moves and shakes when you turn over. The breakfast was good.

    « Nice hotel »

    This hotel is right off I-44 and is close to various restaurants. It appears that the hotel has been recently built or updated as all the decor looked current and was in good shape. The staff was very friendly and breakast was good. The breakfast area was somewhat small, but it was not crowded when I was there. The Best Western sign is not as tall as the other hotel signs, so it is a little hard to find at first. I would stay at this hotel again if staying in Joplin.

    « Enjoyable Stay »

    We enjoyed our stay at the hotel at the Best Western Oasis in Joplin, MO. The overall size of the room was a little small, but it was quite, easy access, and clean. The staff was very helpful and we had great housekeeping service. The hotel was easily accessible from the main road way. Lots of great restaurants nearby for your eating pleasure. I would stay at the hotel again.

    « Convenient »

    No problems with this Hotel except the bathroom is very small and there is no counter space for shaving or makeup bags etc. The room was clean and comfortable. TV local channels. Ground floor and quick highway access a plus. Staff was accommodating and friendly. Breakfast standard for Best Western.

    « Good rate good breakfast »

    We stayed here as part of a traveling athletic group so we received a group rate which was nice. The rooms are those of a older hotel which are ok just of a different design. The sink is outside so if you get up to brush your teeth everyone else in the room is disturbed. The beds were small as my wife and I shared a bed and our son had his own. The rooms were clean and it was quiet even though this particular time the hotel was probably sold out. So by far not a top end place but definitely a great value.

    « Been there a couple of times. Won't return. Would rather drive 30 miles to Downstream. »

    Neosho is a decent sized town; it really should have a decent hotel. I have a client in the area and have to visit on occasion. Each time, there's something seriously wrong with the room. The first time, the A/C didn't work. My second visit - well let's just say there was a certain color stain on the bedspread that I wouldn't touch. So, they gave me another room. It was clean at least, except for the dead roach on the wall. The breakfast is typical carbs and chemical eggs. Freeze dried coffee too. I learned there is a really nice hotel about 30 miles away at a casino called Downstream. I wish I had known about that my first visit - I would much rather drive that distance every day back and forth to the client than return here.

    « Great Stay »

    We always stay at this hotel when we are in Joplin for the night. The staff is always great and the rooms are always clean and quiet. The price of the rooms is also great. Overall I have nothing but great things to say about this hotel and will stay here again.

    « Disappointed! »

    Lovely lobby and nice breakfast....however, the room was extremely shabby and my socks stuck to the floor. I was afraid to take my shoes off! Room was shabby and the door did not even close well - could see thru the crack!

    « Comfortable and clean »

    Stayed here at the last minute after walking out of the hotel opposite. It was clean and comfortable, and the staff were super helpful. The pool and room were clean and well maintained. Basic but comfortable. The breakfast was good with a wide variety of food. Right off the Interstate so handy for travelling through . All in all a good stay.

    « Good hotel for the price »

    clean and comfortable hotel. The decor is on the old and kinda worn out side but the bed was comfy and the AC was good. The plumbing was my only real issue. As with older properties the sinks are very slow to drain. All in all a fine place to stay for the price especially when on business and all you need is a safe, quiet, comfortable place to sleep.

    « Travel stop for a night »

    We planned to stop in joplin for a nights sleep. We chose the Best Western because i am a member. The beds were very uncomfortable for my husband and i. Sleeping was an option. Our 21 year old son woke up with right shoulder pain. Something bit him on his left inner wrist. No recommendations from us

    « Not our favourite Best Western »

    We have stayed at several BW over the past 6 weeks on our Route 66 trip. This one was not up to BW's usual standards. The rooms are incredibly small, and not as well kept as we have come to expect. Kudos however to Nate and Brad who when above and beyond to swap out our non functioning refrigerator for a working one late in the evening.

    « Debit Card »

    I was very displeased with being asked for my Debit Card by the clerks at this Hotel and I told them so, and they said, it is our policy and demanded it to stay there. I will never stay at this particular Hotel again.

    « Charged for a night I didnt stay there »

    I booked thru an online site and paid in advance. Unfortunately, the reservation was for the night prior to the night I actually wanted to stay there. I'm not sure if it was my mistake or not. I described the situation to the manager at the front desk and she said she would look into it. She booked me a room for that night. I did not hear back from her at all. On check out day I called the on line reservation number and described the situation to them. They said they had to talk to the hotel manger and they had to authorize them to refund for the night I did not stay there and she refused saying they were at 80% occupancy and it was not their policy to refund. That may be their policy, but to me its like stealing. I understand if they were sold out, but 80% occupancy, really. Any way, lesson learned. I will never stay at a Best Western again, and I will not prepay to an online reservation company again. Had I known she was not going to refund for the night I didn't stay there, I would have moved to another hotel that's more understanding of the business traveler.


    one of the best hotels me and my family have ever stayed. i travel for work and see a lot of different hotels. and this was by far the best out of my 15 years of travels. the staff are amazing. great clean rooms. great wifi. great breakfast

    « Wonderful staff and Clean rooms »

    Our family stayed for a baseball tournament.State championships. Several from our team stayed as well. Such nice and very helpful staff. From from desk to housekeeping all so sweet and helpful! Rooms very clean. Breakfast was very good. Very good coffee as well which was a nice surprise. Fresh fruit toppings for waffles. LOVE the late check out and pool is open 24 hours.. Just an all over nice stay for the money. Was very well pleased and if ever in Joplin I will stay again and will recommend to others. Cant say enough good about all the staff we encountered.

    « Uncomfortable! »

    My experience was very uncomfortable. The floor was damp throughout. I felt like I had to keep shoes on my feet. We had two flies in the room which we killed, but there were two more by morning. Found two spiders, one crawling on the bed! Manager was not helpful. She said we didn't give her a chance to rectify the problem. That is hard to do at 3 a.m.! Would not return! Worst hotel experience in years!

    « Excellent location and value »

    Had a very good experience with this hotel. Is slightly dates on the rooms but made up for it on the price.. I thought this was a Best western PLUS but it is a standard Best Western. Will be back again on my next trip.

    « good stay; no problems »

    good stay; no problems; value ok too for price; I'd stay here again; staff was very friendly and helpful; called directly and saved a few bucks compared to some other quotes I had; this was a short-notice unplanned trip too;

    « Great rate - nice place »

    Stopped for one night while traveling. Quick and easy to book while on the road. The room was was clean and spacious. Appreciate having a mini fridge for our drinks. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Thank you Bradley.

    « Passing through with puppers »

    They obviously spent a lot of time and energy renovating the lobby, but the room was only slightly better than the average Motel. Then there's my pet peeve of having HD TVs in the room with standard cable. Yuck. That being said, it was pretty clean, quiet, and comfortable. Having a dog, first floor outside entry is very convenient. They also had a decent pet relief area with picnic tables. Free cookies, good breakfast choices, and abundant coffee also pluses.

    « Above expectations »

    Much nicer than expected. An older motel but clean and everyone was nice and everything worked. I felt like it was a good value especially for the price. Close to restaurants and everything you would need

    « great rate for overnight in Joplin »

    we were on a trip from Santa Fe to the Midwest. Room value for family of 4 was excellent. Room was clean, staff efficient and breakfast was delicious. We liked coffee choices, including extra strong. Creamer, not powder, is always appreciated for coffee.

    « Comfortable and Quiet »

    Hi Folks, My wife and I have been loyal Platinum Card Best Western customers for years. We get a clean, comfortable, quiet room (I sound like Tom Baudette) and a buffet breakfast in most of the chain. It also has business services when you need them. Who could ask for more in a mid-priced motel. Regards, OldeBear

    « Great place »

    Everyone was committed to making our stay comfortable and convenient! Great breakfast and great location. We came for my nieces graduation and needed extra chairs for extended visitation and the staff were more than happy to assist . A virtual assistant via text is offered upon check in which allows for ease of requests for additional items such as towels, pillows, etc... Will stay again in the future??

    « A Nice Place As Always »

    Hi Folks. Like most Best Westerns, they have a quality standard not found in other "chain motels" in their price range. This is why we are Platinum Card members. Besides getting a comfortable, clean room for a reasonable price (I sound like Tom Baudette), they have good service and lots of extras like a full breakfast. Regards to all, OldeBear

    « Very nice and very comfortable »

    I recommend this hotel for those staying in Joplin. I had a great room and excellent service. My bed was comfortable and the room was clean and inviting. I ate a very nice breakfast that was fresh and hot with a wonderful variety of food. Check-in and check-out quick and very professional and friendly. The staff was some of the best in meeting my needs and expectations.

    « Best Western and Nate »

    I will continue to stay at this hotel with my Mom. The ground floor access is helpful. I travel with my cat and enjoy the pet friendly hotel. It is in a good location, has a good price, nice rooms, and great staff. I had problems with Orbitz and Nate at the front desk was helpful. I will call direct from now on and they match prices.


    This is a great property with excellent facilities and an incredible staff! The breakfast is amazing and definitely has something for everyone! I would recommend to everyone! Super quick access to the highway and anywhere else you may want to go in Joplin! I would recommend this property to any and everyone! Enjoy your stay! David

    « Nice Decor »

    Very pleasant stay. Room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was adequate. Staff friendly & helpful. Would like motel chains to have a night light in the bathroom & a magnifying mirror as well. The staff accommodated our requests.

    « On the way to Arizona »

    Near the highway, many restaurants nearby, safe neighborhood, clean rooms and comfortable. Great free breakfast. From Toledo heading out west Joplin is a good place to stop and rest, and this Best Western was a great place to do it. Also easy access to get back on the road.

    « Small room with oversize furniture »

    These rooms seemed undersized with large wardrobes to accommodate the old large TVs. The furniture needs to be down sized to accommodate the room I had difficulty finding the facility due to the poor, temporary signage. I believe the price was high for the current state of renovation. The staff was great!

    « B+ rating »

    Although the hotel was a motel style and the rooms were small and somewhat tired looking, the reception area and check in desk had modern upgrades. We are loyalty members with Best Western and staff were the friendliest and most accommodating we have ever experienced during the past two years in over two dozen Best Western Hotels we have stayed in. Freshly baked delicious cookies were available upon check in, the breakfast was great, and the staff insisted on giving us a snack bag for the road!! Price was VERY reasonable - cheapest we have paid - and the hotel is close to great restaurants for dinner within walking distance. We had a great meal at the Outback Steak House. We would definitely stay here again during out cross country travels!!

    « Would probably not stay again »

    We picked the Best Western for the rewards system to earn point for a reward but probably should have stayed somewhere else. The noise level was bad because they were doing leaf blowing and other noise (construction noise?) directly behind the fence outside of our door. That also means our view from the room was a fence and guest left and right were standing outside smoking most of the time so we did not even want to leave the door open. There was an outside sitting area on some grass but since it was also the pet-pooping area there was a strong smell of urine and whatnot every time you walked past not even talking about wanting to sit there. The room itself was very small and you would not want to be a very large person if you actually want to be able to walk between the cabinet and wall to the sink/bathroom because you might not be able to get through. Sleep quality was poor because the bed was not very comfortable at all. The microwave/refrigerator/coffeemaker station was squeezed in next to the sink in the bathroom area and it was just hard to move around the room comfortably. The breakfast area in the lobby area was nice and modern unlike the room. There was a nice selection of fruit, cereal, baked goods and yogurt available. We wanted to do laundry but when we could not find the laundry room where it was supposed to be by the map/instructions in the room, my husband was handed a card at the front desk so we could walk across the parking lots to the neighboring hotel and do our laundry there. Since this was pretty inconvenient and we did not want to leave our laundry at a different hotel while it's washing we decided not to do laundry at all. Would not stay again.

    « Pleasantly surprised »

    Called to make a reservation, we needed a first floor room as my husband has a broken leg and we have a pet. Nate was very accommodating, arranging a room for us. He advised us that it had not been renovated. When we arrived the staff advised us of the same, the room was just fine, neat and clean. We enjoyed our stay and didn't care that we didn't have a granite countertop in the Bath Area, we had everything we needed. We noted this hotel on our travel map. We will be back.

    « Be more conscience »

    We really felt the room was too small for a king size bed, parking and then having to walk so far to the room wasn't good at all. Plus the breakfast wasn't as good as it could have been. Employees didn't seem all that friendly~

    « Best Best Western »

    This is the second time I have stayed here and, by far, the best staff of all the Best Westerns. Although it is an older hotel and the rooms are smaller, they are clean and have all the amenities. Breakfast is great but again, I cannot over emphasize the wonderful staff. Genuine, kind people... make you feel as part of a family.

    « Not so good »

    Noise level on the other rooms to and A/C-heat units is very bad. Very small room and the bed was not very comfortable. Very small area to walk between the bed-walk and the bathroom so of you are a larger person you might want to try a different hotel.

    « Not all Best Westerns are created equally. »

    I travel a lot, both for work and for pleasure. So I have a lot of experience with hotels in cities as best as NYC and Los Angeles to little towns in the south and mid-west that no one has ever heard of. So I maybe mistakenly assumed, based on my experiences with other major hotel chains, that there is a minimum standard for a big name hotel brand to maintain regardless of the location. I learned this trip that this is not the case. I had booked a stay with the Best Western thinking I could find something affordable but still of a decent quality for my few days in Joplin and to be honest, if I hadn't pre-paid for the room, I would have found another place to stay even before I checked in. My first issue with the hotel came when I needed to change my reservation - I had booked the room for 4 nights at one price and I ended up needing to shorten my stay by 2 days and the price went up by $15 a night when I did this! There was NOTHING in the policy in my confirmation email about a minimum night stay. The second issue came when I called the hotel the night prior to check in to explain I would be arriving in Joplin prior to their check in time of 3pm and I wanted to see if I could check in early. The person I spoke to on the phone told me that I could call the next day to see if anything would be available and that the hotel was not full that night so there shouldn't be a problem - especially after noon. I called again the next morning and the girl on the phone told me they didn't have any rooms available yet. I asked about what the employee I spoke to the night before said and I guess he was still there because I heard her asking him if he told me what I had claimed. She got back on the phone and told me I could call back at 12:30 and that, "If there's a room available I'll let you check in since someone gave you that information but I should be charging you an extra day's stay to check in early." Rude much? I called back at 1pm and spoke to a girl named Maria who was very nice and happy to allow me to come check into the hotel with no problems - she even warned me that she didn't have any ground floor rooms available which at the time didn't seem like a big deal. I arrived at the hotel which had no sign to identify it so we drove right past it twice before finally getting to the front desk and Maria was as friendly in person as on the phone and got checked in. I went up to my room (which I didn't realize prior to arriving was more of a "motel" style - only available from the exterior of the building, there is no interior to this hotel) and realized that this wasn't exactly what I had pictured when I booked a Best Western. The room had an ant problem, there were holes in our sheets and blankets (they appeared to be from cigarettes maybe?), the bathtub had rings around the edges from either soap or shampoo bottles or something. The noise level for this hotel was out of control - there must have been a group of people staying there in rooms that weren't together because all day and night people were running past my room. The housekeeping cart shook the door and windows when they went past. When we went up to our room after dinner one night, there was a group of people smoking... something... at the bottom of the staircase we needed to take up to our room so I no longer felt safe leaving the room without my boyfriend. The last straw was on the last day of my stay, I was waiting for my boyfriend to come back and get me to check out (which was at noon) and literally at 12:01 I had housekeeping banging down my door asking if I was leaving. I stayed here because I was trying to save a few dollars. Please, take it from me. Pay the extra $10 a night to stay at another hotel in the area. I am pretty much done with BW after this because what good is a recognizable brand name is in one area you could have an amazing stay (I have a previous review for the Best Western Eden Resort Inn in Lancaster which basically sang the praises of every thing about it) and then in another location have a room with bugs and cigarette burned sheets???

    « Late night check in »

    BW when above and beyond to accommodate us at a late hour and gave us a very good rate. Breakfast was really good. Overall this was a great experience and we will stay again. Special thanks to Ed for checking us in at such a late hour.

    « Older style hotel where you park in front of your room »

    The Hotel location was great. The room was really good. I could park in front of my room. I could hear people outside talking. I could hear nothing from inside the hotel. So it wasn't hotel's fault. I have a thing about internet access. Theirs was so so. I wish hotels would spend the money and do better internet. But This one didn't. One point ding! Otherwise, this was a clean, convent place to stay and if you didn't need the internet access, it was GREAT. I didn't use the breakfast, but it was nice and if I had the time, I would have eat there. And the last thing that made a lot of difference was the PRICE. Very very good rate. I got a discount because I am a club member. And I'm AAA. It makes a difference. Makes the boss happy too! The Waffle house next door was good too. (I love Waffle houses!)

    « nice hotel »

    hotel was very nice and rooms were clean and comfortable. would stay again. breakfast was excellent. only thing lacking was a luggage carrier because our rooms were in back of hotel alittle far from parking lot.

    « Wonderful Experience »

    This was not a planned stop but we were so tired we decided to stop in Joplin. The desk clerk was very accommodating and apologetic that there was nothing left on the ground floor (I have a hard time with stairs). It was around midnight but he was able to give my husband and I a room upstairs that was closest to the stairs and lobby as possible. It made the end of our trip feel like a mini vacation.

    « Great place for a reasonable price! »

    A great breakfast! Muffins,waffles, bacon, sausage, toast, etc. There was a dedicated staff member at breakfast. Room was pretty basic but has been recently remodeled. Bathroom & shower has me til, etc. Carpeting not plush but pretty new. Room had a coffee maker, microwave and refrigerator. Staff was very friendly. A very good deal!

    « Great motel »

    We stayed here on a recent trip to Oklahoma. The room was big clean and one of the nicest motels I've stayed in in a long time. Will definitely stay here again when passing through Joplin. The staff was very friendly and courteous

    « I Don't Know If I will Stay Here Again »

    Staff is nice & friendly. Room was ok but bed leaned into middle (thats why the low mark). Wifi is ok. Breakfast is ok. Walking distance to Waffle House but lots of restaurants within 5 minutes or less. Stones throw from I44.

    « best Western, Joplin, MO »

    Very nice and clean rooms. Has extras such as microwave, refrigerator, coffe maker, hairdryer, shampoo Friendly and professional staff. Breakfast doable but not great. Nice warm and generous output of water from shower. Air conditioning worked.

    « Great Midwest Hospitality »

    BW Hotels are by far the best value........Especially in Joplin, MO....It is the warmest and friendliest....personnel, from the front desk to the cleaning ladies........made you feel like family! It was clean, quiet and close to everything...... Dog friendly with a really nice dog/sitting area that was also kept very clean........Best place to stay for the whole family....

    « First class accomodations, great location »

    Just off I-44 at Rangeline in Joplin, this is handy to two of my family life events: Last May I stayed there with two of my daughters and their family members to celebrate the graduation of my oldest granddaughter. The ceremony was a couple of miles north just off Rangeline. This visit was when the same granddaughter made me a Great Grandpa at Mercy Hospital just across I-44 from the Best Western. That granddaughter lives in apartments visible just west of the Best Western. So, it is a great location.

    « Unhappy employees and cramped rooms »

    Overall experience was poor. The staff seemed unhappy to be there based on multiple conversations held while they were smoking in the breezeway. The rooms were small and cramped. Access to a north side room was a maze filled with obstacles (i.e. storage sheds, cleaning equipment, etc.). Rooms were clean and continental breakfast service was friendly.

    « Comfortable Stay »

    Good rates, nice location and a clean room. The walls were a little thin for a light sleeper but overall this place was clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly. There are no elevators and the doors to the room are on the outside so if you don't mind climbing a few stairs this might be your place. I would stay again

    « Trying to make updates but just not up to par yet.... »

    First, be aware this hotel has rooms with outside door access. Room smelled of heavy Cherry fragrance. Bathroom was clean and it did have an updated granite counter. The rest of the room had outdated chairs and cabinetry. The world as t experience was the mattress. We had a double room and both beds we're horrible. They we're so worn out they we're concave. We felt springs all night and didn't sleep well at all. Its also a little tricky navigating into the parking lot at night. Shares an entrance with a gas station. The only plus was the staff was friendly and welcoming. Bre as kfast had a decent selection and staff kept full. Down side I as the area to sir and it is really small and it was very tight with the crowd. Needs a lot more updates and amenities to keep up with the other hotels located on this street. Will not stay again and our bodies still ache from those mattresses hours later....

    « Very accommodating staff »

    This hotel has great staff who go out of their way to make the stay enjoyable. when we arrived there were no BW sign to confirm our Hotel. We were told that BW is doing a brand change and the current sign was removed. Staff apologized for our several trips up and down the street searching for the hotel and gave us a discount which they did not have to do. We were impressed. Only little note to cleaning staff... Room 147 I dropped my toothpaste under the sink and went looking for it. Really needs a good cleaning there, dustbunnies everywhere there. Rest of the room fine.

    « Perfect for a quick rest »

    Not a bad hotel at all for the price. It was clean, quiet, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The only hiccup was that our room keys didn't work, but that was handled immediately. My kids destroyed the breakfast it's always good when we don't have the pay for that!

    « The room leaked air »

    the front door leaked air so the room was hot then cold and could hear everything that was going on out side witch went on all night and could hear the people next door thru the connecting doors. The night clerk was pushy to get me out of there, gave me no info about the place. the morning staff was nice and pleasant.

    « Average »

    This place isn't bad but I have trouble calling a motel where room doors open to the outside, a suite, in any capacity. Check-in was quick and staff is friendly, room was a bit small. Biggest complaints would be the very hard bed and general noise level. Proximity to street and hotel setup seem to accentuate noise. Room was very clean, and contained fridge and a microwave. Shower also quite clean, good water pressure. Seems to be an older place, but not bad. Got thru Hotwire where I later saw was recommended by 45% of users. I'd probably stay again, if just one night and a quick trip.

    « Nice and clean »

    The hotel staff was very nice and check in was easy as we booked ahead of schedule. Room was nice and clean. Parking was good and we enjoyed our stay for the night. Room looked as if it had been updated with flat screen TV, mini fridge, microwave and coffee pot. Hard wood lead into sink area and went to the bathroom then became tile. Overall good quality stay especially for the price.

    « review »

    this is a common stop for me and my husband driving accross country. this facility is quiet and well located. the staff are very friendly and helpful. i did have to complain about the lumpy bowled bed in my room, but of all my many stays here, it was the 1st time i encountered a bad bed. the manager was most helpful in rectifying the problem. i will always stay here on my way accross country.

    « Road Trip Break »

    Got a late start on a road trip from Austin to St Louis. Decided to pullover and crash here. Got a King Suite. It was much smaller than I expected and not really a "SUITE" at all. It had a king bed with a couch and sitting area next to it. There was a teeny fridge and a microwave next to the TV. I was expecting a separate BR/Living room combination with a kitchen area and some space to stretch out. The room was clean. They waived the $10 charge for my cats. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. The free breakfast was much better than expected with eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, waffles, fruit, juice, coffee, yogurt, danishes, cereals and a ton of other stuff. Plenty of hot water, decent towels, adequate makeup lighting, right off the highway. surprisingly it was very quiet. The only real negative is there are no luggage carts to help with your bags. I made several trips to the parking lot to retrieve pet carriers, luggage, coolers, litter box, etc. Thankfully we had a ground floor room but it was on the back side away from the parking lot. The area is safe and well lit and walking to the back side of the property presented no problems. Basically for less than $100 including taxes. It was a good deal and I'll probably stay here again when I go to visit family up the road. The staff and awesome breakfast made the review 4 star. They really made us feel welcome and at home. They have free wifi but I won't use public connections so I can't rate it.

    hotel and staff are helpful and excellent! love the large selection for breakfast, eggs, waffles, biscuits and sausage gravy all the cereals and drinks. outdoor pool during season. It's a very classy place.

    « Wonderful Staff! »

    This motel is undergoing a renovation, so there are workmen and their vehicles blocking certain areas. But the staff makes up for it. Very cheerful, kind and helpful. The room wasn't new, but it was spotless and the beds were very comfortable. I will definitely be back!

    « Nice place »

    Was great value and it was very close to places to eat and to gas up . They were doing upgrading on the outside that was coming along very nicely . We would stay there again .. The people at the front desk made checking in a breeze and checking out was just as nice.

    « great staff and clean hotel »

    Excellent welcoming staff, answered all my questions about area and hotel. Very clean room and comfortable. Would stay here again if going to Joplin again. was here for ncaa championship cross country meet. They directed me to the college, gave me good advice on where to eat. Excellent breakfast in the morning.

    « great place to stay »

    this is one if the nicest hotels my family has stayed at in a while very friendly and attractive employees I will be telling all my friends and family to make this hotel on there list if they are in the area again.

    « Hotel »

    Even thro this hotel is going thru some changes and not all things were up and running is was very nice. The staff was very helpful. We ask about the laundry and were told it was being remodeled however they did give us a voucher to the other hotel in the property and we did it there for free. This is a very nice hotel and it wont cost you and arm and your leg.

    « The best Best Western »

    I have been taking my track teams to Joplin for the past five years. We love to stay at the Best Western. It is very affordable and clean. The staff is always friendly and helpful. I highly recomend the Best Western to all who are visiting Joplin especially sports teams.

    « Making a reservation is a joke »

    The hotel was clean, the staff friendly and the breakfast OK, but getting the room listed on your reservation doesn't happen. My wife is handicapped with MS; so naturally I always make a reservation requesting an ADA room. This hotel also has parking outside each room which makes access for her even easier. We arrived late as planned (9:00 PM) to find that our ADA room is not available and to make matters worse, the room assignment is in the last building where access from the parking lot is difficult. I made the mistake of reserving another ADA room here for our return trip through Joplin. The manager assured me that we would have an ADA room with late arrival. Guess what? A carbon copy of our first visit. If you stay here and arrive late, there's no good reason to make a reservation because they don't honor it anyway. The manager did provide a $50 discount, but it didn't make our stay any easier or safer.

    « Could do better »

    Stayed two nights at this hotel for business. I am a rewards member and I try to stay at Best Westerns whenever the city I am in has one. This Best Western means well, but could do better. Check-in was great, everyone was super friendly. The room was nice, they are redoing the rooms and I believe our room had new carpet and paint. It was very clean. I was locked out of our room when returning the second day and our room was quite aways from the front desk. I know that hotel room keys can be easily demagnetized so I purposefully keep them away from magnets. I then had to wait while guests in front of me were checked in before I could get my keys fixed and return back to my room. When you have worked all day, this is the last thing you want to have to do. Also, breakfast eggs were watery both days and the hotel ran out of coffee creamer. There is a real business problem with Saturday mornings, having only one person at the desk to check out guests and serve the breakfast area is not fair to the worker or to the guests.

    « Worst place I've ever been »

    My husband and I booked a king suite and the room was absolutely horrible. We should've left as soon as we walked in. The bedspread was stained and the room smelled like mold and urine. But it was late and we had already been on the road for 12 hours. So we attempted to stick it out. That's until I got up to use the bathroom and saw roaches scatter. We left immediately and are now driving another 4 hours home at 1AM. We've stayed at many Best Westerns and have never had an experience like this

    « Would stay if in the area again without hesitation »

    We were greeted by friendly staff when we arrived rather late in the evening. Second floor room had been recently remodeled and furniture replaced with new. Bed was firm and very comfortable. Would stay if in the area again without hesitation

    « Completely Dissatisfied ! »

    We were honestly very dissatisfied with our stay with Best Western Oasis in Joplin MO. It was a first & last time experience for us . We just couldn't believe the fact that they had all sorts of things plugged into a surge protector & they had multiple things plugged into it ! The rooms were dirty & outdated & not worth the money we paid for it for sure. The Door to the room was warped & the Dog Walk was right in the middle of The Patio Set where people are supposed to go set & eat or talk. It was ridiculous. We have stayed in numerous Hotels over the years that didn't have the name your chain has & it was so much nicer, cleaner & much much more safe ! Please upgrade & do yourself a favor , before advertising how great your place is make sure it really fits the bill !

    « Ho Hum »

    Had some minor in water closet was noisy (it is part of the light and we leave it on as a night light) Lavatory top was too small for all our "stuff" TV remote did not work...replacement did not work

    « Quick Stopover »

    Staff was very friendly, hospitable and attentive on check In. The Hotel room was very comfortable, relaxing and is located near many restaurants within walking distance. Overall, a quick stop over on my next way through Joplin.

    « Nothing Impressive »

    We stayed here in May for a friend's wedding, so there was a whole block of rooms that was booked. This is an older hotel with the walkways on the outside, no indoor corridors. The weekend we stayed it was rainy, so it was difficult for us to go room to room without getting wet. (In a regular hotel we could have had an interior hallway and kept doors open across and been easier to visit with each other). One afternoon we moved some chairs that were in a picnic area over to sit outside one of the rooms (remember it was raining, so no one was sitting outside in the picnic area) and the staff seemed a little annoyed that we moved the chairs. We did make sure that we took them back when we were done The pool is outside, so we weren't able to use that either. The rooms are small but they were ok. Our bathroom door had someone else's hair bands left on the door knob when we checked in. One of our friends asked for extra towels (they had 4 adults in their room) and they were told no. Our iron didn't work and housekeeping was quick to replace it for us. There is a small closet with the kind of hangers that you can't remove. The continental breakfast was fine with the normal variety of yogurt, cereal, bagels, waffles, fruit, etc. . Overall this hotel was just OK.

    « comfortable night »

    We had a comfortable night's stay. They were having problems with the key cards but the front desk came to us twice rather than have us go back and forth. Several other rooms were having the same problem. They had a new machine ordered to arrive the next day.
