Great choice for an evening stop during lengthy road trip.We stayed here on our way to and from Florida. It's right off I65. Room was clean and quiet and beds were very comfortable. (Beds in room 231 did have a few minor squeaks in the springs, however-nothing a squirt of WD-40 couldn't cure!) Nice, small pool for a quick dip... More

We stayed here overnite on our way to Florida. The rooms were nice and clean, parking is provided in front of the rooms. There are a few restaurants within walking distance which was convenient. The pool looked nice but we didn't get a chance to enjoy it. I reserved three rooms and there were no complaints. The breakfast was good... More

The rooms were very clean - the bathroom sparkled! We loved the choices at breakfast - the kids loved the pancake machine. The staff was friendly and helpful, giving us directions, gave us some Tums when one of us had a upset stomach, and even shared one of their cleaning secrets. It was conveniently located right on the main road.

When I arrived I wasn't sure I would get my money's worth, but I turned out to be impressed with the staff and the hotel's plan to upgrade an older facility with modern fixtures and conveniences. The bed, tv, and bathroom have all been upgraded, which are the most important amenities. There was an extensive continental b'fast and plenty of... More

I was only disappointed in the fact that my credit card was charged for a no show, when we had made a cancellation when we were there, the no show was for a date 4 days later when we originally were going to stay again on our return trip. I found out while we were there that those plans had... More

Really a nice place. Older hotel but kept in excellent shap, and newly decorated rooms. Close to the interstate, lots of restaurants available near by and other amenities. Would definitely stay here again.

The hotel is convenient to the freeway and the rooms are easy to access from the car. Clean and spacious rooms (though the room we had with a king and a hide-a-bed was a little strange), good breakfast. I felt it fairly pricey for what it was, but the rooms were fine.

We hadn't stayed at a Best Western in years so when we read the reviews about this one we decided to try it. So glad we did. Very helpful staff, clean and spacious rooms, handy parking right in front of room. No complaints and pet friendly. We will stay here again.
