Very impressed with this hotel. Better than many of the Hilton properties I've stayed at in major U.S. cities. Only gripe was the faux Irish Pub that served as the restaurant, but there were many other food options within easy driving distance.

We enjoy staying at Best Western. The rooms are comfortable and the staff helpful an friendly every time we have stayed. The only problem we have had is that the beds are too firm which makes it hard to sleep.

Their meeting rooms were spacious and comfortable for an all day meeting. The full service restaurant on-site was great and so convenient for our lunch break. The staff... More

Beautiful hotel - especially the lobby area! Great place for a family as there was a beautiful pool, fitness room and game room for kids. The rooms are large, the self-adjustable thermostat is digital, and the cleanliness was impeccable. I will stay at this hotel when I'm in the area for sure.
