This property was disenfranchised by Best Western in October 2014, but they still have the "Best Western" sign up outside. It's an older motel (doors all open to the outside), not a hotel, my guess is that they lost the franchise because of lack of reinvestment on the part of the owners. There are two buildings. The no-smoking building has... More

Room was good, beds comfortable, really hot water and good pressure. Continuous fan on the A/C was a plus. Breakfast had "real eggs", good selection and was the best that I have had in the last couple of years. I initially thought it odd that we got breakfast certificates, but the separate breakfast room was much nicer than eating in... More

Someone needs to use a scrub brush. The breakfast room was in another building that we had to have a voucher for. The room had been updated sometime and repairs were not done well. We will never stay at this hotel again.

Our room was larger than I expected. The room was completely clean. There were plenty of towels and wash rages. The beds were very comfortable. The stunning part of our experience was the breakfast. Hot grits and gravy. There were also freshly scrambled eggs and sausage. The biscuits were also hot. The room was breakfast area was spotless. We were... More

I shouldn't have stayed here after reading the other poor reviews, but someone I was travelling with said she had stayed here before and it was fine. (When we got there she realized it was not where she stayed). The room smelled, there was no maid service between our first and second night stay, and I found a dead cockroach... More

This was by far the most rudest staff, nastiest room we have ever had with Best West. Save you $$$ and stay a few miles up or down the road at a different best western. The coffee maker had dry yellow gunk in it, we ended up going to the store next day. I love Best westerns normally but this... More

Not kidding. My husband is in Environmental Health and has had much training. We always inspect hotels before we take in our luggage. We found live bugs, husband went to office with evidence. Clerk was very nice and moved us 6 rooms down. Upon inspection of this room, we found dead bugs, but I couldn't stay. Again, clerk was nice... More

The quality of the room was very sub-standard. There were stains on the carpeting; poor repairs in the bathroom area. It is a motel with outside doors that was falsely depicted on the Best Western website.

Stayed here while delivering Bucket trucks. First thing for truckers it has a great parking area!! Not the nicest Best Western I have ever stayed at but clean and a pretty good breakfest. I would rate it higher but it has some age that made it not have a newer modern feel. Looks like a nice pool and grassy area... More
