Usual standard of rooms for this chain no problems with parking or cleaning. We love the US as the people as so friendly and welcoming, the older lady who checked us in was not welcoming or friendly at all unlike the other 2 receptionists I dealt with, we treated as a nuisance.

Simply put, an over night stay with the feel and treatment normally reserved for resort type accommodations. Clean rooms, well maintained pool and Jacuzzi, breakfast for the vegan and the carnivore friendly helpful staff.

We had a nice, clean room on the second floor (by request as it cuts down the noise if no one is above you). The staff person who checked us in (Tina?) was the best I had in the two weeks we travelled. She was VERY friendly and welcoming, and she let us know about the main/extra amenities, like the...

Worse check in I ever had. Has a rude receptionist who lacked the training to even change rooms. Fist she said, o, you are already checked in so can't change your room. I checked in at 5 and yet she "had" to give me the only room right on the street and could hear cars all night long. She clickity... More

Recently, my boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel. The rate was pretty decent for the area. The room, shower, sink, floor, beds, TV, table, and towels were all clean. The room was nice. The air conditioning and heater worked and we used a lot of AC. The stay was wonderful overall. We felt safe and had no disturbances while... More

This hotel was a great stopping point on our way from Phoenix to South Tahoe. It was a great little town and this hotel was in a perfect location close to all the restaurants and shopping. We ate at Johns Pizzeria and that was fantastic meal. The whole experience was pleasant and I would stay here again on this kind... More

Do not miss staying here if possible. While a room for 2 is small, it is well furnished, colorful & VERY clean. Note: Most of the 1st floor room guests must step-up into the rooms (well marked with yellow paint). It was impressive to note a lift at the pool & separate jacuzzi for handicapped guests! The breakfast is tasty,... More

If you want a great night's sleep with quality prices, then Best Western is the place to go. I stayed 3 of 5 nights at a Best Western and would have been 5 of 5 but two nights were on a military base. This is my hotel of choice.

These rooms were the narrowest I have ever stayed in. The bed was shoved right up to the front wall so that the air conditioning unit blew on the bed all night. Very cramped quarters I was overjoyed to get out of.

Great nights sleep in a very comfortable bed, with a basic hot breakfast to follow. Very clean. The staff were very very helpful with travel advice. Parking was close to the room. Great spot to depart from to go to Death Valley.
