When our family of five stays in a hotel, we typically have to choose between a large-suite hotel, such as Residence Inn, or book two separate standard hotel rooms in order to sleep everyone comfortably (space becomes more critical as the kids get into their teens). The double King suite at the West Inn fit our needs perfectly. The rate was much cheaper than the Residence Inn was charging, and was about the same price as would have paid for two rooms at the nearby Comfort Inn. The Double King room also has a pull out sofa bed for our 8 year old, and the extra King gives our teen and preteen just enough personal space to prevent the usual midnight fights jockying for covers and mattress real estate.
In addition, the rooms and hotel were well laid out, spacious, and very well decorated. The beds were also very comfortable with nice linens and down comforters (similar to a Westin). The room included a small kitchenette with a medium sized mini fridge, microwave, and coffeemaker that makes pretty good coffee.
Other reviews have done an excellent job of describing the hotel's other amenities so I won't repeat them all here. However, I don't agree with the reviewer that complained about the breakfast. We all thought the breakfast was fine, with many items to choose from, which included awesomely fresh strawberries. The staff was freindly, cheerful and helpful at every instance as well.
We would definitely return to this hotel
