This is a three star hotel that boasts that it is a four on checkin. We travel 2 months of the year - this is a definite 3 - maybe not even a 3. It is clean but is very average after that. The people are nice but the quality is lacking.

We are a travel agency and had a group on a 10 day tour. the Best Western was an unexpected pleasure. the room decor was nice and the beds were great. There was also room to park the bus close to our rooms. All around it was a good stay.

The rooms were very nice, seemed to be newly remodeled, but rooms are small. The lady who checked us in was very nice, the breakfast was nice but the lady was unorganized, short and seemed overwhelmed. At checkout the lady seemed to busy on the phone to even check me out, when I left the keys were still laying on... More

The check-in experience was GREAT, and our room was nice and clean as was the VERY TINY bathroom. The only real problem with the bathroom was that the shower curtain was no big enough to stay closed preventing water from spilling on the floor making more work for housekeeping. The breakfast was average, but the woman employed to keep the... More

The renovation works! Furnishings nice, bed comfortable,new TV. Bathtub so nice she actually took a bath. Pool looked nice-too bad there was a thunder storm. Breakfast adequate but not great. Front desk staff pleasant and helpful. Towels a little small and a little rough. Only 1 regular coffee in room.

The motel is outdoor entry and an upgrade/remodel is in progress. The rooms had new/refurbished furnishings and remodeled bathrooms, etc, so that was nice. The exterior grounds were being upgraded too. The exterior of the outdoor-entry rooms still needs remodel/upgrade.

This hotel has been newly renovated. Rooms and lobby look really nice. And breakfast is to die for. Staff as really nice and helped us quite a bit during out stay. I would strongly suggest anyone who is travelling for business or pleasure to use this hotel.

Front desk staff was friendly and accommodating. Lobby and breakfast was clean and well stocked. Our room was comfortable and clean. I could tell that the lady at the front desk (Jovita??)took pride in the hotel and worked hard to make things right.

Renovations being done, but nice lobby. New furniture too large for room size. Still room looks dated and old, but safe and clean. Pool was deep and clean - kids enjoyed it and don't mind a pool in the parking lot. Delicious and well-priced frozen custard next door - made the stay worth it! Nice on/off location from highway.
