I would recommend this hotel for your overnight stay but I would suggest unloading everything out of your vehicle since there have been two vehicles broken into in less than a month's time. Other than that, the rooms and grounds are clean. Beds comfortable. Internet great.

We pulled off the Interstate, looking for a hotel that would accept traveling dogs. As we turned, there was the Best Western, with a Trip Advisor endorsement on the marquee sign. :) Went in, the receptionist couldn't have been nicer. Extremely friendly and welcoming.

Home cooked scrambled eggs, bacon, ham, biscuits, fruit, cereal...and really good coffee! The rooms were clean and the bath was hot. Nothing fancy as far as the rooms went. But I agree that they were clean and the feel was good. Extra towels for the picky husband and a very cheery front desk. My daughters enjoyed the pool. Park out... More

Have stayed here half a dozen times in the last 2 years for move in/move-out and visits to school. I always ask for a non smoking room and am given a room with a card on the deesser that says no smoking. Sometimes they smell like cigarettes and sometimes not. When I complained maintenance said rooms are just bombed with... More

I am not sure who you spoke with as all four of our maintenance men do not recall speaking with a guest regarding a room that smelled of cigarette smoke. However, our front desk staff did note that you viewed four different rooms and was unhappy with all presented. We have 10 designated smoking double rooms and 2 king smoking... More
