Wifi was so slow it was useless. Room/rug was dirty. If you want breakfast, it's better to go next door to Denny's for better food. Never got a receipt at checkout, despite one being promised to me by e-mail. This property is below the standard of other Best Western's I've stayed at.

The room were very spacious and clean. Beds were comfortable. Personal were helpful and very professional. I would stay at this Best Western again when I'm in the area. The location is great it is conveniently located off the freeway. Gas stations and restaurants within walking distance although the hotel does provide free continental breakfast.

a big chain name in a quiet city. this is the lowest of the 3-tier BW product. It has room for improvement to get to the BW Plus level. the bed mattress was too soft. if you need back support, use a pillow. beds were clean though. the breakfast foods was typical continental as stated- danishes, cereals, waffles, fresh fruit,...

Way too noisy (right next to the freeway), water pressure was terrible and the water would run VERY hot then VERY cold. Would NOT stay here again. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was actually quite good, with plenty of selections to choose from.

Stayed here for 5 days while visiting family in the area. Was very pleased. Clean and well kept. Security of guests and the property seemed to be of high priority for the hotel staff. The breakfast was exceptional. Not knowing the area - we booked this hotel based on price, previous reviews, and the proximity to our family. Would definitely... More

Booked the hotel during July 4th weekend because it was relatively close to Sea World. Paid double the normal rate because of the holiday weekend as usual. Just needed a place to stay the night and was cheaper than surrounding hotels. Room was clean, staff was friendly at check in. No complaints and would stay again in the future.

I reserved less than 1 day in advance with the great price and was able to use my points. The room, 241, is clean and is not noisy. The bed is good with the generous pillows. There is great customer service in the lobby and dining room. My husband and I did enjoy the great breakfast with high quality of... More
