This Best Western is located right off of the interstate, it is a great location. It is an outside room hotel, but dont let that deter you, because it is safe and it is clean and comfortable. The staff was pleasant when we checked in and out. The breakfast was decent, quick and a good option to get us off... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. After driving 11 hours to find hot chocolate chip cookies in the lobby at check in was such a nice touch. We also used the fitness center- nice to have after sitting for so many hours. Beds were very comfortable. Great job Best Western!

I was very impressed with the amenities this hotel provided along with a very comfortable bed. My room faced the highway which I thought was going to be a problem with noise of traffic. Didn't hear any of it. Worth staying here.

This hotel is easy to get to. Very close to the highway. In walking distance QT and an ice cream shop. Staff very friendly. The beds were comfortable and the room was cold. I love a cold room. Room was very clean.

We stopped in one night while passing through. It was a convenient location and easy to find. The rooms had been updated. A little small but the furnishings were fine. The desk clerk was training and trying hard. The closest ice machine to our room had standing water around it which made it inaccessible.

At first glance from the road, the hotel looks a little worse for wear. It shares 3 parking lots and seems crowded. Take a second look and sign in! The desk help on duty was Miranda. She is wonderful with a bright smile, a clear focus to accomplish her task, and the ability to multitask like answering questions when doing... More

The lady at the front desk was very rude and unprofessional. There's too many other good hotels to choose from to not have to put up with rude service. When we checked in the lady never smiled and barely acknowledged us. Plus when I asked for two extra pillows our first night, she told me there were two in the... More

Perfect! Super clean! Great pool, even had a deep end much to the delight of my children! Fantastic laundry. Everything was neat and clean. The breakfast was great. The employee at the breakfast was super nice. We were there right at the end and she made sure everyone got what they wanted by asking each group before she started cleaning... More

Clean and well maintained motel. Great Location, close to a lot of places including the interstate highway, baseball/football complex, stores and places to eat. I was very satisfied. Be aware though, 14.23% in taxes (sales and occupancy) are added to the bill.
