Fabulous 8.8 From 219 reviews

Very good 8.0
Really nice room!
Room was very comfortable and a great price. I lifted up a couch cushion and found a lighter, so there is a question of how often the pull-out bed is checked. I was also a little disappointed with the very small breakfast variety, especially with them having cereal and oatmeal available but no milk.

Very nice place to stay

Very good 8.0
We were in town for a dance competition. The lady at the front desk was super nice. We got back from the competition right when the pool closed. The lady kept it open for the girls to swim for a little bit. It made their day after a long day of traveling and dancing.

Worst MANAGER EVER
There is nothing on this site that states there is a pet “fee” when I got to the hotel I was informed that I would be charged an additional 20.00 per night for my 4.5 pound dog at the “pet friendly” hotel. The supervisor on duty argued with me as I stated this was not indicated on this site during booking. Fast forward to check out and the manager continued with sticking her finger in my face and told me she will in no uncertain terms make darn sure that Hotels.com from now on has it on their website site that there is an additional pet fee because “it’s been their policy for 40 years!!!!” The worst hotel stay ever nasty manager, poor customer service and quite frankly if this is what Best Western hires as managers I will never stay at another one of their properties

Definitely a keeper
This hotel is recently renovated in the common areas which they did a great job with. The service was great and the stay was comfortable. The room wasn’t dirty, simply dusty from lack of use I presume with COVID and all.

Never Again
At check in I had to call a phone number listed on a sign to get someone at the desk. I was rushed through at check in for a phone call, didn't explain breakfast times or anything. Just showed a map to my room. The room was ok, but was humid mostly clean surfaces with dirty office chair and walls with piles of dead bugs in the corners of the room. The hallway carpets are very dirty and doors were gross I wiped them with lysol wipes myself. We had a huge issue in the middle of night with our room and had to move. When checking out the front desk lady said we already checked out...apparently we didn't know we did according to her despite my family standing there telling her that didnt happen. She was not understanding or caring about the room issues. We never did get an appology or sorry you had to move all of your crap while trying to get your toddler to sleep last night. Not rude, just not nice or caring.
