Hotel is easy to find - right off the interstate and close to attraction. Rooms were clean, Breakfast offered way more than the normal continental - hard boiled eggs and waffles.... I would definitely choose this hotel again.

Wow this has to be the worst Best Western I have ever stayed in. I thought 1 night would not matter, was I wrong. Dim lit rooms, towel rack fell of when I reached for a towel, noisy, noisy, noisy even the A/C was noisy and I could hear youth running around the 2nd floor with it on high. Very... More

This is the worst hotel we have EVER stayed in. Actually it is not a hotel, it is a MOTEL. It doesn't qualify to have a Best Western name on it, more like MOTEL 6. 90% of positive reviews here are fake. I realized most people that left 4 or 5* review for this hotel are not real. Most of... More

I reserved three rooms for three nights. The rooms were clean. One AC was not working well, and it was repaired while we were out. The breakfast is average, even though the lady servicing the breakfast is very friendly and helpful. I was impressed with the person who serviced our room. We did not need our rooms cleaned each day,... More

this was another wonderful stay at the Best Western Continental, as it always is. The hotel staff are wonderfully helpful, courteous, and cordial, and the pool and jacuzzi, are wonderful and thoroughly enjoyable.

The front door inside latch broken within 10 minutes of entering room. The musty odor of the room was strong and we had to air out the room by opening the sliding door, however the freeway noise and pollution was bad. Neighboring businesses looked rundown and a local 7-Eleven had people selling drugs in plain site and transits were up... More

Very dirty hotel from the towels to the sheets and floors, will never stay at a Best Western again. Plus it is right next to a major highway with no type of noise protection. The price may be good but DO NOT STAY HERE

We asked for handicap accessible. Because there were none available, we got the kitchenette. VERY room, easy to access, grab bars in bathroom, medium height toilet, lots of maneuvering room. Beds were nice. We were very happy with the room. Staff was so nice. It seemed like everyone was happy to work there.

Pros: - Room was cheap - Bed was comfortable Cons: - cockroach in bathroom - dirty/stained towels - no smoke detectors or fire sprinklers in room - sticky (dirty?) furniture - "clean remote" (you know, the ones that are easy to clean because they don't have small crevices) was dirty and sticky and stained. - one of the light fixtures...

Average quality facility. Listed as a smoke free facility but smoke smell was strong in room. Had to leave window open for long period of time to air out room. Facility is adjacent to free way and on ramp, noise was very uncomfortable.
