“Restful Stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

After a long day driving, this hotel was pretty much all I wanted. Front desk were very friendly and helpful, gave some ideas for dinner and ways to avoid major construction on the interstate. Room itself was large and nicely furnished. I just missed out on breakfast but the lady offered to make me something anyway, despite having packed up for the morning. Some areas around town seemed a bit dicey but on the whole a nice stay.

This was a very nice hotel. The breakfast was very good. A hot breakfast with alot of options and extremely friendly staff. The room was big and the only complaint I had was the bathroom floor needed replaced. Just getting worn. The overall experience was very good.

Very seldom do I write a review! Room was beautiful! Very comfortable beds. Extremely polite staff and very clean. Great showers
If you're in the area.. This is the place to stay! Plenty of places to eat close by without alot of extra stress of looking for them. Enen close to shopping close by if you need to do so. Laundry on-site so that problem is taken care of as well!

The first room I was given had water standing in the bathtub, hairs all over the bathroom, and a dead insect on the bathroom floor. I went to the desk to ask for clean room. The one person working had posted a sign saying "Back in 10 min". I had to wait 15 min. When she got back, she said "I was trying to take my lunch break. Guess that's not working." I explained the situation and she gave me keys for another room, but didn't apologize for the dirtiness, or for making me wait so long. The 2nd room also had hairs in the bathroom (but I was too tired to do anything about it).
On the plus side, the breakfast is good.

The best part of this overnight stay was the breakfast in the morning. They offered eggs, homemade biscuits and sawmill gravy among other things. The rooms are definitely nothing special, but overall it was fine for a one night stop over.

We arrived after being on the road for 12 hours and were looking forward to a relaxing night. The room was horrible and did not look clean. The wireless internet did not work....AT ALL so we had to go down to the office and get a cord. Then to top the night off, someone broke into the car I was towing because there was no place to park the car near the room we were in. There were several shady people hanging around when we pulled up and the area was dimly lit. We thought it would be a nice hotel because it was a Best Western, but we were wrong. When we told the hotel staff what happened, the lady just apologized and kept going. One of the maintenance staff actually saw that the window on the car had been busted out, told the manager, but no one saw fit to tell us. Instead, they kept going like it was "business as usual". We found out about it as we were preparing to leave. When the police arrived, they told him that we did not want to press charges. Had it not been for us going to the office to wait for the police to arrive, the officer would have left and never filed the report. I guess next time we travel we'll just pay $200 a night for a secure hotel instead of $90, which was still expensive for poor service and vandalism. I WILL NEVER STAY THERE AGAIN.....EVER!!!!
