Ok, to be fair, we checked in at 2am after our connecting flight was late from Orlando. The shuttle bus came to pick us up at the airport and we were relieved to find a room as most others were booked out near the airport. The room costed approx $135 inclusive of tax and I think for the price, I've paid less and seen nicer rooms else where. We chose best western as we get points as members and usually best western hotels are fairly decent but this one was more like a super 8 if not worse in some ways. The room had a little bit of a bad odour and being a kingroom at that price I was expecting something a little nicer. The tv was old looking and so was the bathroom. After having a quick look at some of the other reviews on here, maybe it was just because that's the only room they had left, not sure. I would rate this less than 3 stars based on room, presentation of the room however, the staff there were very lovely and friendly. I was abit upset with our little situation with missing our international flight and was so tired so when I spoke to the receptionist the next more, I got abit teary, she seemed geniunly sympathatic, not so much in what she said but just her general manners and while that doesn't seem like much, but after my ordeal with virgin america (in this case I'm really talking about the guy from virgin america I had to deal with when we missed out flight who couldn't careless and was extremely rude) it was just lovely to see someone else atleast listened and was sympathetic. Other staff were also friendly and helpful so that's why I couldn't rate it less than a 3 stars. Maybe they do have nicer rooms??? but if all the rooms were like the one we stayed in which was on the same floor as reception, I couldn't really recommend it especially for the price we've paid. Once again though, staff were great.
