I travel 6 months of the year, this property has put the BEST back into Best Western! A warm welcome check-in, great atmosphere, and a great guest room. It's not often, but it felt a little like home here. For that I thank you!!!

The hotel is very nice but with back to the 50's weekend we all get up really early to head to the park it would be nice if hotel had breakfast earlier in the morning and better parking for our tailers.

There was no internet service in the room (Rm.212). After many calls to desk and to the IT person listed on the information card, nothing was resolved. It just never worked. Very frustrating. There was also an oder in the room which most resembled bleach. It gave me a headache. Air conditioning is controlled by the front desk and was... More

This building is absolutely amazing! All the original pillars seem to be here. The old train doors have been permanently sealed off, but not hidden. The breakfast area still resembles an old train platform. It's further from my job site than I usually prefer, but well worth it! Staff is friendly, although there seem to be a lot of new... More

Clean rooms, toiletries provided. Breakfast includes waffles, eggs/sausage, cereal, donuts, oatmeal... all the usuals. The lobby always has ice water. There's a small fitness center, pool, business center. The staff doesn't know much about the area. Parking is across the street from the lobby entrance. Even though it says Do Not Enter, you're allowed to park there. Note: if you... More

The stay was very good, with the exception of the tub and the sink. All staff personnel were cordial and friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good with wait staff in dining area. I would stay here again with the same staff working at the hotel. Parking is sometimes a problem but not a major concern.

On first drive up, area is not favorable. A bit sketchy to get there, and nothing within walking distance for sure to visit. The hotel is the old railway station which is kind of cool, but a bit cold feeling. The rails are still on floor which is pretty nostalgic. Did the breakfast bar really nice, but in the morning,...

We stayed here a year ago based on location and recommendation. We liked it so much that we came back here on this trip to the area. Love the hotel built in an old train depot - so charming! Breakfast was good as always - lots of options. The king rooms are spacious and comfortable, bigger than the king rooms... More

Check-in was fast, but first impressions at entrance closest to room were unfavorable. Dead landscaping and an abundance of overflowing garbage and cigarette butts. Common areas were unkempt but room itself was in good condition other than the infamous bizarre central control of HVAC in each room--I don't know why there is an apparently non-functional control module. Continental breakfast was... More
