It's old but clean and comfortable. Friendly, hard working staff is a plus. The breakfast is better than at some BW Plus hotels we've stayed in. It's close to decent restaurants too. bla bla bla! 1234

Nice people in an older hotel. It's been updated but it's still old. Outside doors and bathroom was small but for an overnight stay on the way somewhere, it's a pretty good place to lay your head. The bed was fairly comfortable for s cheap bed. Didn't get a chance to eat. Left at 2:00 AM

We stayed at this hotel during our drive home to Cincinnati. The hotel was clean, decent breakfast and updated. Great value compared to others in the area. Each Rooms is accessible from the outside. Right next store to Applebee's

This hotel is great for breakfast, and service. The rate was even decent. However, the fragrance of the cleaning products used is so strong, it is hard to deal with. We did not notice any mold, so it must be to mask cigarette smoke or something else. Anyway, we would have really liked this motel except for the strong smell... More

This is not a "destination" hotel but a stop off on the way to a destination. The property was older but seemed well maintained and there were renovations underway when we stopped. There are multiple restaurants within walking distance and Interstate 65 is 1/4 mile away for easy off and easy on. There was a small pool if you want... More

When traveling to a specific location, we look for overnight lodging convenient to the major interstate which is clean and reasonably priced preferably offering a hot breakfast. This Best Western fits this description. It was also conveniently located next to an Applebee's for our dinner needs. (No more driving; just stretch those legs and walk across the parking lot!)

The room was clean, smelled great no smoker smells or coverup. Parking not the greatest, located right next to an Applebee's. Would use them again for sure. Person who checked us in was friendly and used my name.
