As I have said about this hotel before it has everything a person needs under one roof. We like the atmosphere, personnel and the restaurant. The food is always good, and the personnel are always great. We just enjoy the location and we like to bring our family along to enjoy what this hotel and restaurant have to offer. Very... More

We stayed at this hotel for our visit to Adventureland. It was conveniently located and clean. It's an older property, but it is well maintained. We especially liked the large, family room we had - 3 queen beds in the one room. It was perfect for us and our three sons. The pool was a good size, and the kids... More

Your hotel made our stay for our 13th, anniversary very special. Our room was very clean and bed was very comfortable. The towels we're VERY SOFT. At the other Best western Hotels the towels and wash cloths are very ruff and smell like they are washing them in the pool water. Thank you, very much for such a wonderful stay.

I can usually count on Best Western - not so much this time. This hotel is close to the interstate and has heavy traffic noise. Add to that the noisy heat/air unit - located high on a wall - and it was not a very restful night.

Rooms and hotel are really outdated and carpeting is filthy. Air conditioning controls are above head level. People at front desk could care less. Outside access doors do not work. Pool is pretty nice. Walls are paper thin. Restaurant next door serves a good breakfast (free voucher if you stay at the hotel.) Two eggs, hash browns, toast and juice.

We like to stay at Best Western hotels anytime we are on a trip. Best Western has never let us down. We are completely happy with the Best Western in question. My wife and I both recommend Best Western to everyone we know. While Best Western is usually not the cheapest place to stay, their hotels are always---always---among the nicest... More

Late checking in 11 pm, wasn't aware the breakfast is a voucher for the restaurant attached. Limited selection, long wait time. No options for special diets. Toilet hardly flushed, water temperature scalding and freezing at 1 am. Staff was wonderful, room was clean and comfy. Ice makers broken and no fridge/microwave. For the price, we thought they should have. Pool... More

Had problems with the outlets not working. Clock was unplugged and hidden behind the TV set and the refrigerator was not plugged in. Never had problems here before so obviously someone didn't check on the condition of the room this time.

Upon check-in, was almost greeted as if was a burden to the receptionist. Never acknowledged club membership. Would've never mentioned breakfast availability on the restaurant (requiring the request of a voucher) unless I had mentioned it. When checking out, not even a thank you for staying. Room was fine but common areas shabby and trash bins overflowing in halls. HVAC... More

This was probably a great place in 1966. And it would probably be a great place today if the price was $49. But at around $100 it is not a place you'd want to stay. It's clean....that's the only compliment I can give them.
