I have nothing negative to say! This place was GREAT!! The staff was very friendly and was always on top of everything that I needed! Best Western is the only pet friendly hotel that I know of and that is great since I have a dog. I will be staying at more Best Westerns in the near future!

My finacee and I stayed at the hotel in the hot tub King room and it was phenomenal. We were greeted by Linda at the front desk who was very nice and filled with smiles. Our room was beautifully decorated and we were given bubbles for the hot tub. It was nothing shady, the water ran strong and stayed hot.... More

Spent 4 nights here in February while visiting friends at an RV Park nearby. Hotel was showing signs of aging but was still acceptable. Breakfast area was undergoing upgrades but was fully accessible during breakfast time. Staff was very accommodating. Easy access from highway. Dunk N Donuts nearby to satisfy my wife's daily ice coffee habit. Only minor complaint I... More

This hotel is great value, excellent staff, make you feel very welcome. Front lobby is under renovation, it looks like it will be quite nice by the architectural drawings shown. Business center was not working very well because of renovation, but staff went out of there way to print off some important documents I needed. Breakfast was very good, and... More

Am a bird-watcher and travel to various locations around the USA, and usually stay at a Best Western because of their reasonable prices, facility-quality and free internet service. Also like the fact that they are a "partner" with Costco, and typically book my reservations thru Costco's travel service.

Room puts me in mind of a mom & pop, flat roofed, run down $25 per night old has-been. Air Wick couldn't mask the smell of stale something or other (I choose to believe it was tobacco). Without some significant updating, I couldn't possibly recommend this BW. I we weren't so tired, we would have moved on.

I do apologize for any dissatisfaction you had while staying with us. Most guest come to the desk or call the desk if there is an issue with the room. Had you done so we could habe moved you to another room. Our rooms are inspected daily so I'm not so sure how the room had a stale smell. As... More

Exterior of hotel was fine, but for the $$ we paid, would expect the added security of interior halls instead of doors on the outside. Lobby was under construction, so it should be nice when done. Never heard any noise from the construction. King room was nice, with a nice plush chair and foot rest. Shower head was very low... More

I appreciate your feedback, I do apologize for the dis comfort with the shower head. We are almost complete with the lobby renovation it looks great. As for the $$ it is because everyone is season and rates are high. More

This is a well maintained motel with friendly and helpful staff. The room was not made ready from previous guest, but they gave us quickly another (though everything were fully booked). The rooms are average motel rooms, with quite ok beds. The breakfast was ok, typical american. The only complaint is about the AC noice, you need probably ear plugs... More
