“Great Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2006

My family and I stayed at this hotel after a two-hour drive from Orlando. We arrived around 11:30pm, but had no trouble getting settled into our room. At first I was worried about the location of our room (we were at the very back of the hotel) because the hotel was very packed. The room ended up being a pleasant surprise. It seemed that this hotel had been renovated not too long ago. Our room was a nice size and everything was clean. The only complaint I had was that the sink water had a funny smell. We would most likely stay here again.

This was one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in. It appeared to be built in the 1970s but had been totally remodeled. We stayed here during the late summer-early fall of 2004 too evacuate during hurricane Frances.

This was one of the only hotels we found with a vacancy and would accept pets. It was getting late and we needed a place to stay. The room was also clean and remodeled and had quality furniture, 2 queen beds, a separate sink and a microwave/fridge as well as a 25" color TV.

The grounds were nice as well with a fitness center and pool as well as an ice machine and vending machines. There were ponds on the property with boardwalks.
The office was nice as well and had a sitting area and breakfast room and also a computer and printer with internet access.

The next morning we ate the free continental breakfast. It was ok, but plain and was just a counter stocked with food and a toaster. One woman who had been staying there a few times told her husband she was getting tired of the breakfast and wanted to go out for breakfast.

We ended up staying here only one night as the hurricane was actually heading toward this hotel, so we went back home. We were lucky and happy to find such a nice hotel.
I would recommend this hotel and it was a good value.

We stayed for three nights at the end of May. The rooms are large and remodelled. The beds are comfortable and a refrigerator and microwave were included. The motel is quiet, farther from the interstate than some of the other motels. The continental breakfast is so-so but with what you save on the room you can afford to eat breakfast out.

I really enjoyed our stay at the Best Western in Lake City. The rooms were nice, good sized beds, clean, cold air, and smelled very good.

The continental breakfast was great.

The pool was nice.

My son really liked the baby alligator in the pond up front. They have a bridge/gazebo over the pond.

The only complaint I can give you about this hotel is that the building where the hot tub and sauna were was a little on the stinky side, but what sauna isn't a little on the smelly side.

We loved our stay at Best Western at Lake City Florida. Our room smelled good and was clean. Our air/heat was digital, and could be adjusted with a touch. We had a tremendous number of TV stations available, which is not the case many places that we have stayed, in much larger motels. Breakfast was good, as well. Overall a very pleasant experience!

This hotel was very scenic with a landscaped water fall and tropical setting, and had a great location behind the gas station, and restaurant. It was convenient to just walk to dinner, and fill up the car. The continental breakfast had a good menu: bagels, hot waffles, donuts, fruit, as well as coffee, and juice. However, you have to go early to get the most of the selection.

The room was clean, and spacious. The refrigerator was bigger than most of the standard refrigerators at most hotels. The room also contained a microwave, but it was filthy. It had melted cheeze splewed all over the inside. The biggest concern I have about the room was the door. We noticed that there a gap between the doorframe and the outside. The gap is big enough to let in bugs, and in Florida, that should be corrected. The next morning we examined the outside of our door and noticed there was a wooden block on the outside of the door frame that probably effected the way the door closed. Made us suspicious that this hotel had a security problem.

If I'm Lake City, I'll go to another hotel or go to the next town.

On our way to the beach we stopped over at the Best Western in Lake City to shower and get some sleep. I had found the Best Western in our AAA book while on the road. It had been given a three diamond rating with nice reviews. I called ahead for availability and held a room with my credit card. When we entered the parking lot, it did appear nicely kept so we felt good about checking in. We get to our room on the second floor and the first thing we noticed was a musty smell. The noise level was terrible. We heard people all night long, slamming doors, chattering, etc. The air conditioner never cooled the room, we were uncomfortable all night. We called to complain about the noise and the hot room and was told they were sorry about the noise and could send someone up to take a look at our air conditioning unit. This was at 12:30 in the morning and both kids were asleep. We told them we did not want someone coming in the room at that time of night while our children were sleeping. The bathroom was dirty with hair stuck to the shower wall and hair in the tub. We had one towel for four people (two adults and two children). There wasn't any kleenex in the holder. Overall, our stay was not pleasant. Upon checking out, we complained and was told that they were aware of the towel problem because their washer was broken. With regards to the hot room we were told that they did offer to send someone up to fix or replace the unit. They did take 50% off the room rate which helped, but we returned from our vacation only to see a full charge on our credit card. I signed a slip for forty dollars so I don't know how that got through. Now I have to call back in the morning to straighten that out. I would not recommend this motel.
