I would have to say this hotel was just okay. The air conditioner was noisy. We booked this hotel because of the location and the fact that they had a large hot tub, unfortunately it was out of order for maintenance our whole stay so we could not enjoy it. The back door of the hotel was propped open the... More

Excellent accommodations. Safe, clean, convenient location, pleasant staff. I stay here fairly often, on my way to and from NC to MA. It's a great half-way place to stay. Consistently very good quality. Highly recommend.

The staff was great & the rooms were clean. They were updating rooms when we checked out so it may be a 5 star when they are done. They provided a nice breakfast & the beds/pillows were very comfortable. The only downside was exiting the highway to enter the hotel there were some deep potholes if you pulled onto the... More

This was my first time staying at a Best Western and it was good. The hotel appears to be an older property that was renovated and the rooms were very nice. Housekeeping is on their game...our room was spotless. The hotel appears to be made of brick and concrete. There was zero noise that traveled from room to room. The... More

This is a good place to spend the night except for the weekend. There were two youth sports teams staying here, and according to a man who has been at the hotel for many months on business, they are here every weekend. However, we have stayed here during the week and found it very satisfactory. You might want to check... More

While our front desk experience was fantastic due to the professional, energetic and bubbly woman we had taking care of us, the price was higher than other places we stayed at with more amenities. It's nice that it is near Texas Roadhouse and a pizza place so we could walk if we wanted. The lobby has plenty of seating and... More
