Hotel was clean but just a plain décor. Staff were helpful. Breakfast bombed big time. Cold and did not taste very good. Could not eat it. A/C was noisey. Rooms were a little small but seemed like a older motel that is being remodeled.

This Best Western was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly, helpful, courteous, professional, and caring. Breakfast was good and filling. Even though it was a full house for the night, it was very quiet in the room, even being above the swimming pool. It was an excellent stay, and I highly recommend the Best Western Van Buren Inn to...

This hotel is clean and comfortable; the room appeared to have been recently updated. The outdoor pool was very pleasant. Breakfast area too small, breakfast just "ok" Staff was pleasant and helpful. Evening desk clerk made fresh coffee for my husband. I would stay here again.

WARNING: Before you select this hotel, go next door or look at any other local hotel. For the same price you could get the Holiday Inn! First off I rarely leave negative or positive reviews anywhere. I don't usually have hotel experiences so exceptional in either direction that they are worth the time to write. Today, I have reason to... More

Got a very good night's sleep...check-in staff was very accommodating, supply a handicap room as requested on the first floor for us. Room was very clean and area was a good quiet area to stay. Breakfast offered more than most, with sausage, eggs, biscuits & gravy as well as waffles and fruit etc. Would definitely stay again! Great rates also

This BW is more like a motel than hotel. The breakfast area has two round tables that seat 4 and two 2 tables that seat 2. So only a total of 12 people could fit in the breakfast area and believe me, that is about all that can fit.

Hi Vacationjunkieok: Sorry you did not enjoy your stay. Did you have trouble with seating for breakfast? We have a meeting room upstairs that seats an addition 45 when the bottom is full. Please give us another try when we are fully remodeled. Thank you, Bob More

OK for a one night stay. The shower drained so slow only one person could take a shower in the morning and one at night. Bathroom door would not shut because of toilet hit it. Take your cooler with you because there was no refrigerator.
