Stayed at the Best Western for 3 nights in early December. Shuttle service from the airport was fast and efficient, and it was nice to have someone help me with my luggage since I flew in alone and got there before the rest of my party. We had 3 rooms in the same building as the breakfast. Rooms were a nice size. The room would smell musty if closed up for too long, but we solved that by opening the door to the balcony when we were in the room. The balcony was nice - love that it was screened in. We got to watch some iguanas climbing around the trees from our balcony.
Cab was about $20 including tip down to Duvall if there are 3 or less people. 4 people or more, and the cab is $4.50 per person. We signed up for the trolley - $30 per person and you could ride for 2 days - I think the first trolley is around 9:10 and the last one at 4:40 (don't quote me on that). We'd take the trolley around in the am, come back to the hotel for a rest early afternoon, and then trolley it back down to Duvall for the evening, and finally take a cab back that night. The money was worth it to not deal with parking near Duvall.
Service at the pool bar was fast & efficient, and the rum punch was delicious. Yes, the airport was pretty loud, but I never heard it late at night, and I never noticed it early mornings. Breakfast was ok (waffles, yogurt, mini muffins, cereal, oranges, bananas, sausage breakfast muffins, toast, juice, coffee). Decent enough selection, but nothing I was hungry for. We were obviously there at a slower time of year, because we never had an issue with seating at any time throughout the morning.
The front desk was always helpful and accommodating. They called cabs for us a couple times and the cabs were there within minutes. They were very helpful upon check-in and with any questions that we had.
For what we paid ($150 per night), it was well worth it. I liked the quiet and getting away from the craziness. I would stay there again.
