We were making a quick trip north. We needed to stop for the night and I knew Best Western Inns were a good place to stop. This one did NOT disappoint. We had a good nights sleep and breakfast. I would stay there again.

Comfy beds and pillows! Nice pool! Even have a lift for the pool so those that are handicapped can use it-I thought that was awesome! Breakfast had many choices. They are remodeling starting in October. Great place-I would stay here again! Very nice people running the hotel!

We stopped just for one night as we were passing through Alabama. The room was nice and very comfortable.
