Beware of bedbugs. This hotel is on the bedbug registry website. We stayed in the safari room, and I caught a couple bedbugs in a cup. I think we were reimbursed for our stay, if I remember correctly. So that was good. The safari room is also very tacky. The most tacky decorations I have ever seen. I'm talking hot... More

We recently enjoyed a 5 day stay in Madison, Indiana. We extended our trip last minute and found space in the "Best Way". We were dubious in our expectations and very pleasantly surprised at the amenities. Every staff person at the front desk was very gracious and southern. The breakfast (we were expecting stale donuts and tinned oj) was very... More

First off it is in a great location, right across the street from the high school and quick access to Clifty drive and food places. Second the service was so good. First I went in expecting to pay a high rate and they have me a discount for the long drive I made. The room was very pleasant. The beds... More

First of all the site said it was newly remodeled. NO WAY!!!!! This hotel lied about everything. Rooms were gross. Lacking fire detectors. Pool was so hot that it made it impossible to swim. I would never stay here again!!!!

Ok, so it isn't the Ritz, but I travel alone on business and Bestway meets and exceeds my needs. I have found the staff professional and friendly without exception. On my multiple stays here in several different rooms I have found lights, heating/cooling, appliances & bathroom in good repair and my requests when I book have been honored with no... More

Priceline calls this a 3 star hotel. It is actually a motel. Significant mold, holes in the wall? Shredded drapes, holes in the spreads , brown stuff smeared on door , smoke detector with wires dangling, babies with diapers in the pool and just generally filthy. I blame Priceline for calling this place 3 star. I contacted them and they... More

Glad I was travelling with a bunch of guys. I would not have stayed if I was with my wife. Badly needs decorated or knocked down and started again . Staff pleasant but definitely a bit different! Quite disorganised . On 2 occasions during the night other folks who were drunk tried to get into our room. Luckily?! There is... More
