Let's face it. There isn't a whole lot to choose from in Montrose. I guess it isn't Montroses fault that they aren't next to a Disney World, or the Grand Canyon. But this was where we were ending our day and started looking for a place to stay. After weighing all the options, the Best Western looked to be the best of what was available. I wasn't expecting much. I usually don't. It makes disappointment easier to take.
I shouldn't have been so skeptical. Not impressive at all from the outside. I guess they put their energy into the inside. Like many Best Westerns that I have stayed at, they have some unusual qualities. Not just a cracker jack box with a bed.
Here are the pluses:
Clean room. Much better than usual.
Quit. Never heard a sound, except for the rain.
Skylight in the bathroom. Nice touch.
Stove and refrigerator. Really a Micro and reefer, but I like the former sound better.
Good Wi-fi. Much better than most. 15 up and 3 down.
A whirlpool and a shower.
The bathroom area was large with a unique and very nice set-up.
The breakfast was better than the norm. Fresh scrambled eggs, sausage patties and all the other stuff. Even a bowl of yogurt.
Two stories but NO elevator.
One ice machine was broken so only one left located about 1/4 mile away. I had to drive there.Gotta have ice for the bourbon.
