“shabby at best”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2009

Bring a printout of your reservation document; the desk won't have any record when you check in. This may have been a nice property twenty years ago, but no evidence of upkeep since. Our "nonsmoking" room was highly perfumed, with at least two cigarette burns on the bedspread and an unidentified dark stain. Outside your room, watch out for sharp metal shards sticking out from the air-conditioning unit. There are many other motels on this stretch of Route 66 to pick from.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2006

the rooms are standard, like in other motels. but our's was not clean. it was definitely not vacuumed, because we found 5 things on the floor spreaded all over the room. i can live with that. at 11.45 pm a big "whoaaaam", a strange loud noise kicked us out of our beds.
what the hell was that? we had problems in finding sleep after that strange noise, because ist seemed to originate directly in front our door. hm...
the next morning i spoke to the owner, a very kind and friendly man. i reported him about the strange loud noise. next to our room was a small dark gap, where the two corridors of the motel met.
the owner told me that sometimes strange people come to sleep in that dark gap, right in front of our room. how can you tell a guest something like that?!?
be sure not to sleep in 107 and 207, because these rooms have a "gap".
it was the worst stay in our three week vacation.

Stayed two nights - 8 & 9 August at this Best Inn. Room was very clean and the location quiet. Mr Puzio the owner is a charming and friendly man. Simple but quite adequate continental breakfast. The breakfast tables are in reception area.

The new management, the Puzios, have made the Best Inn a great stop for bargain hunters. The rooms are clean and the location is quiet. The continental breakfast is very nice as well.
