I was driving throughout on my way to Iowa. I had a credit card discount and wanted a facility with a bar and grill. This was just fine. I had a nice clean room, nice comfortable, bed with nice flat screen tv. Please remember this place is a backwater town, so expecting service on par with the four seasons was... More

After looking at the reviews for the hotels in this area for less than $100 we chose this one. I'm glad we did. The room was perfectly fine for us. It was not fancy but we just wanted a place to sleep. The room was clean albeit not spotless but the bathroom seemed pretty clean. The restaurant is the only... More

Our room was clean and comfortable on both visits. During our first stay, we ate dinner in the hotel restaurant. While we waited 15 minutes to be given menus... More

It is nice to hear you stayed both coming and going. It states we must be doing something right. I will see if it is possible to address the step situation maybe a ladder on the side will help the little ones. big ones too. I hope you choose us again on your future trips. More

Their renovations are really paying off. Our room was roomy and very clean and the bathrooms were also very clean. A shame that breakfast isn't included, but the restaurant prices were very reasonable and a 10% off coupon was included. The only complaint was the outside seating area. We had several relatives staying so we had a picnic out there.... More

This hotel was located in a very serene area which was very nice to take a long walk around. The Best Western hotel was very nice in side, service was very quick. We ate at the restaurant & again were served in a speedy fashion food was great too

Discovered this during return trip to west coast. Hotel is clean, quiet and well managed. Staff we dealt with was attentive, friendly and very accommodating. Beds were very comfortable. One of the best we visited on 3 week cross country drive.
