We needed a place to sleep and this was fine. The staff was really nice and I liked having a balcony, but the hotel itself needs a total update. The bathroom is very small. The area seemed to be safe.

BW Rain Tree was a really nice BW. The staff were really great. We were "stranded" there for a week and could not have asked for a better place to stay for the price; as well we have a small dog and it worked out perfect.

I'm sorry you ran into a problem at our hotel. We do our best to eliminate any smoke smell in our hotel by using an ozoning machine & cleaning all rooms to Best Western standards. We have also reduced the number of smoking rooms available at our hotel to cut down on any odors that offend non-smokers. Thank you for... More

Front desk person, Devon was wonderful. His customer service skills were great. BW should note this as the check out person was not so great. She acted like I was an interruption. Not friendly at all. This place needs an overhaul. Clean but very dated rooms. Breakfast room too small.

My fiance and I stayed here one night, the room was nice, clean, the staff friendly, and the bed comfy although small. There was a breakfast provided, it was horrible, they are renovating, the breakfast area so we had to go to the restaurant, in the lounge area. The biscuits were cold, the gravy, luke warm, the waffle was good,... More

Thank you for your feedback! I can understand your discontent over our temporary breakfast accomodations when you were at our hotel. Our renovations in the breakfast area are about 98% complete & we are now serving our breakfast in back where it should be - in our lobby. In addition, I have ordered some new breakfast equipment including a chaffing... More

We stopped here for one night, on our way from New Mexico to visit family in Indiana. We had our puppy with us and found this hotel identified as "pet friendly". It is in a convenient location, just off the freeway. It is clearly an older hotel, but our room was very nice (though it was small) and it appears... More

My wife and I stopped for the night in Effingham on our way from Cincinnati to Kansas City, and stayed at the Best Western Raintree. Our room was not anywhere close to fancy but clean and comfortable. I know this sounds a little odd, but I was especially impressed by the fresh-looking bright white silicone grout around the tub, as... More

I wasn't expecting much as this looked like an older motel in a truck stop area. However, the room was spacious and clean, the bed was comfortable, and the staff was pleasant. There was an outside door to the parking area and one onto an inside corridor for access to ice, vending, and the office area. The sink area was... More

We were just on our way through and stopped for the night. The room was big and clean but we were woken up during the night twice with a large truck turning in the parking lot behind the hotel. Breakfast was the usual "hot" breakfast. The sausage gravy was good but the biscuits were pretty hard. Overall a good place... More
