I was alarmed when I saw how close this hotel was to highway 99. However, it was very quiet. We were in a courtyard room which was protected from the noise. The rooms were a little dated, but quite acceptable and clean. Breakfast was good, but just the usual stuff. The staff members were super.

Hotel is located directly off freeway in safe area. Staff, very friendly; rooms clean and spacious. One HUGE flaw; the breakfast is served in a VERY narrow hallway causing extreme congestion. It was very uncomfortable and people were edgy...can't blame them. Needs major updating in this area!!

Thank you for your positive remarks & constructive criticisms. We are planning on building an all new dining room on the third floor of the hotel, that I believe would meet if not exceed your expectations. Our hope is to have it open later this year. In the meantime, we will do our best to serve your needs. Best regards! More

This place was good. The service was very nice and prompt when I asked for something. The breakfast was good for a continental breakfast. The best thing about this hotel was the big comfortable beds. I didn't use their pillows but the mattress was great. We went to to a little brewery and bar down the road which was fun.... More

Thank you for the positive comments. We are in the process of upgrading a number of our beds and I am pleased you had a good experience. We do have a great location. Kind of tucked away on a less busy roadway, near Highway 101 & not far from a number of attractions including the Charles Paddock Zoo, Firestone-Walker Brewing... More

The hotel is close to the Interstate but not so close that you hear traffic. Parking is easy and free. The rooms and bathrooms are of average size with windows that open. Wi-Fi is comp. There is a comp breakfast that isn't half bad. Best of all there is a fitness gym across the parking lot and that's comp'ed too.... More

Thank you for your feedback. It is pleasing to hear you had a nice visit. And yes, the Kennedy Club Fitness is a nice facility and a great benefit to our hotel guests. I will look into how we can mitigate the light from the courtyard. We value safety & security, but also don't want it to be a disturbance... More

We have stayed here a few times and is always a pleasant stay. The staff is friendly and helpful. Our king room was comfortable and clean with a slider leading to the lawn, pool and hot tub.

Best Western has been doing a good job of trying to standardize the brands so we all know what we're getting. I also have to give kudos to the owners/managers of each property who strive to meet our expectations. Having said that, it's now more difficult to point out areas for improvement or to rave about the properties !! The... More

I spent two nights here with friends. It is handy to 101 and to tastings in Paso. The room was very clean and quiet. We had a nice bathroom, a refrigerator, and microwave.

Hotel is great. The walk - in shower was the best. Staff was great, Veronica, George, Kellie, and Geoff. The breakfast was a little weak but loved the waffles. The room was quite and roomy. Great for my two little girls. Great locations and loved the pool.

Nicely set up and clean rooms of average décor. Bed and linen very clean, mattress and pillows of super quality. The king bed seemed to be super king size. The only problem I had was that the bed and mattress was so thick and high that I actually could have used a stepstool to get into it. The facility has... More
