My recent visit was for work travel, but the welcoming staff made myself and my coworkers feel right at home. We were welcomed "home" every day after 5 days of training and were greeted by friendly staff at the breakfast hour. The use of the office area made it a perfect choice for work travel. The ladies and gentleman behind... More

That's for the great comments about our staff. Dakota, our breakfast attendants and our front desk clerks will appreciate the compliments as they consider guest satisfaction their primary responsibility. We've worked hard on developing a staff that puts the customer ahead of everything else and your praise validates their effort. Thanks again More

Very clean rooms, great value for the price we paid. Friendly staff. Comfortable beds. The morning breakfast is a great value with eggs, biscuits, gravy, sausage and potatoes. Plus the waffle maker. Can easily recommend this hotel.

The hotel itself was great. It is a little further from the highway than we like. This was an overnight stay to break up a long drive, we prefer something right off the highway BUT we definitely got a great value.

We have family here and have tried two other hotels in the area, but this place is by far the best. This is our first time here. We have a king room with a jacuzzi tub and a shower in the bathroom. Very clean room and building. There is even grass for the pet to "go". Need an outside light... More

Clean, quiet and safe. Hotel staff works to do everything within reason to make your stay as comfortable as possible. They even started breakfast early because so many of us had to be up and out very early.

Thank you for the positive review and kind words regarding our staff. Opening our complimentary breakfast buffet early to accommodate our early departing guests was a pleasure not a burden. We appreciate your business. More

We visited Point Mallard Water Park with friends from church. I booked 6 rooms. Everyone was very pleased with the rooms and breakfast was very good. It was a lot better than expected. I would definitely stay here again if I'm back in this area.

Good hotel for the money and great bed! The best part is they take pets, too. Breakfast wasn't organized and slow. Staff was extremely helpful and would recommend Best Western anywhere in the US that we have traveled from Montana to Virginia, Wisconsin to Florida.
