I am a truck driver on a very tight budget where I stay. Just happen to stumble across here and find that they have truck parking in the back. Pricing is very reasonable and there are very nice places to eat within walking distance. The room was nice but I have been in other BW pluses and it's a little... More

The staff was nice and very helpful. The room was nicely appointed and the bed super comfortable. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. We were here for a concert and after an exhausting day and evening, it was nice to relax in the room.

If you are looking for a hotel in this area stay far away from this one. I have never had such a bad experience as I did. When getting in the elevator, there was water puddles on floor from people being in pool and riding up and down as well as a handful of French fries on elevator floor. When... More

A very nice Best Western. The best I've ever stayed at, actually. Ms. Pickens was very nice & courteous upon check in. The room was spacious & the bed was comfy. It's in a quiet area w/ truck parking (hubby is a truck driver). Easy access to the highway, Walmart nearby & few places to eat.

Was traveling and decided to stay for a night. The room was adequate, had everything you would need, clean, frig, micro. The breakfast was one of the best with many offerings, more than other hotels that offer continental breakfasts. The check in and out went smooth and the employees were more than friendly! Would recommend.

It was typical of a Best Western - not ornate, just simple but the staff was very nice, and the room spacious and clean. The room was about $20 less than the Fairfield by Marriott next to it. There is a Cracker Barrel and an Applebees across the parking lot and easily accessible. I did not think the Applebees' food... More

This hotel is a very good value for the price. Room was clean and comfortable. The bed and pillows were especially nice. Staff was very accommodating and helpful. Multiple food options nearby in addition to the complimentary breakfast which was standard but very good. (Try the Waffle House for really great waffles and hashbrowns.)
