It was more than 16 years when I returned to the Best Western State Fair Inn (motel) at South Highway 65 and 32nd Street in Sedalia, Missouri, on Valentine's Day (February 14) 2017.
Even though my wife and I live in Sedalia, I opted to surprise her with a Valentine's Day gift of an overnight stay at the Best Western State Fair Inn because this facility has BOTH an indoor swimming pool AND a whirlpool hot tub!
We checked into our pet-friendly room with our well-manned Border Collie at about 2:00 p.m. to discover that our room had been freshly painted and updated with new large-screen TV, California-King-Size bed, lamps, plumbing fixtures, hair-dryer, microwave, mini-fridge, cable TV with HBO movies, carpeting and more.
Giddy with excitement, my wife and I quickly changed into our swim suits and headed directly to the centrally-located indoor pool area where we saw the wonderful full-size swimming pool (3-feet to 9-feet depths), a 6-person Hot Tub with pre-heated swirling water and a smaller 2-feet Kiddy Pool for youngsters.
Ironically, we were the ONLY people using the pool area during Valentine's Day and night! We enjoyed both the swimming pool and the Hot Tub...before returning to our room for a short nap.
Later, I dressed and walked across the street to Domino's Pizza for my carry-out order of a large three-topping pizza for $7.99...which my wife and I shared with our Border Collie in our room.
We returned to the swimming area again the next morning after our complimentary hot breakfast buffet of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, tater tots. pancakes, coffee, juice, etc,
Then back to our room for another nap before checking out at about 11:00 a.m.
Bottom line: Best overnIght accommidationd in Sedalia, Missouri for about $80.00! FIVE STARS! less
