I stayed at the Best Western Continental Inn on Saturday, August 29th, afternoon, until Sunday August 30th, morning, the temps outside were over 100° outside, but the air conditioners cooled the room down to a very comfortable 68°. Everything else -- the pool, the jacuzzi, the breakfast in the morning, the attention of the staff, was exemplary.

This hotel is terrible. Upon arrival, the beds were hastily made and sleeping in it felt like a cheap mattress of flea-market quality. The staff made no attempt to accommodate us when we went to have breakfast and the room was full. The antiquated A/C stopped working and the staff made no attempt to recompense the problem.

The bed was very comfy and the breakfast was good plus the location was good close to stores and resturaunts. Loved the Jacuzzi tub very relaxing. The vending didn't provide water but stores were in walking distance plenty of towels and wash cloths provided just wish I could of got the room at a less price but overall very satisfied.

Stayed here for 3 nights and I wish I didn't. There's nothing special about it. Definitely a 2 star hotel/motel. The beds were hard. Literally connected to the gas station. It had a weird smell in the room. I would not stay here again.

Never ever again. The rate for this rooms are to high. Dirty old room,smells like an ex smoking room. Keep the doors closed ,Highway behind the Window and Moskitos. Personal is not friendly. Badest Best Western i ever had.

This room had roaches in it. Upon check out, they did not even offer to reduce any of the bill. I was very disappointed in this particular Best Western. Do not stay here? I use them in other locations for business, and have never had any problems before. The staff in the dining room were always helpful and friendly. I... More

We had ants in the first room the hotel gave us and the air conditioning didn't work. They moved us to another room. It was nice enough but I have stayed at better Best Westerns. The neighborhood around the hotel is not very good. I would never stay here again.

The room we stayed at has two queen beds... It's very clean and comfy. The room is clean too and smells good. Has TV, free wi-fi, a fridge, microwave, hair dryer, iron and ironing board. The rate was very good. On top of that the breakfast is served. Worth the dollar spent.

Didn't expect a lower cost motel to be this good. A real breakfast instead of rolls and coffee, a nice pool and hot tub. No smoking really means "NO" smoking. Bathroom was tiny and we had to go get extra blankets and towels for ourselves. Staff did not bring them.
