We stayed here on our way through to another town. Outdated rooms but clean, friendly and price was right. The breakfast was good with a nice variety. Looked to be homemade even. Free wifi with no log in to mess with. Would recommend to anyone traveling.

From the outside, this hotel looked outdated, but the inside was recently renovated. The room was nothing fancy, but it was clean and served its purpose. The staff was very polite and the continental breakfast was good. For the price, this hotel was much nicer than many of the comparable hotels I've stayed at.

This Hotel was average. Kingsize bed, clean, good water pressure and hot water. I just stayed for one night on my way to Michigan, it was easy to see and easy to get to. NOTE: They charge more for additional guests, so while internet says $57 it will be closer to $70. Breakfast was great, staff was friendly.

This property is a truly delightful stop. We genuinely enjoyed it. In traveling across I 80, we look for select locations, and Western Inn qualifies. It is an older Inn which has been redone. We enjoyed a large flat screen with multiple channels. Upon arrival, guests are offered hot dogs and cookies, which just hit the spot. The breakfast was... More

Very nice hotel in a great location right off the interstate. It was very clean with a nice staff and free breakfast. The only drawback was the parking lot which was in disrepair with potholes. Other than that, I would definitely recommend it and would stay there again.

We pulled in late, with a dog and they found us a room easy enough. Staff was very friendly. We thought, due to an advertised price, it would be $57, but it was $83 and we were there for about 9 hours, so a bit spendy. The shower did not have any water pressure and it was not pleasant to... More
