“Quiet, Clean & Comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

The bed was awesome, so comfortable that we both slept in. Unusual for being on the road. The room had a separate whirlpool tub, fridge, microwave, 2 TVs and sofa. Breakfast was adequate. There is a great Mexican restaurant within a very short walking distance. We needed the walk after traveling all day.

Dear Ann, I am so glad you enjoyed our bedding and no need to feel guilty about sleeping in :)
I am also glad you discovered the El Rodeo restaurant in our vicinity, it is a locally held secret that it is the best lunch place in town. In fact lunchtime traffic to and from it is such that we have to wait through repeated lights to get out onto University boulevard. We hope to see you again and bon voyage to you.

Located off University avenue just north of the Cracker Barrel. Very friendly check-in, very clean rooms and quite spacious. Weeknights have a happy hour from 5-7PM with very good pizza, nachos with melted cheese and salsa, pretzels, honey roasted peanuts, wine, beer and pop. Bed was very comfortable, slept well. Breakfast was waffles, fruit, frozen omelets to be put in a microwave, biscuits and gravy, sausage that looked rather pale-did not eat, yogurt, milk and juice. Only downside was the bathroom painted brick red which made it rather dark in the room. Would definitely stay again.

Dear Gmasheri, we are glad you enjoyed our social hour which has been the trademark of our Best Western for over 6 years now. We find that giving the guests an opportunity to get out of the rooms ans socialize greatly increases their satisfaction with our hotel and their mood overall.
Happy travels and hurry back.

We had a clean and comfortable room and nice breakfast. It was easy to access the internet, had no problems. I liked the clean shower and was able to take a nice long shower, very enjoyable. The room was quiet, no running screaming kids were heard. I was too tired to swim, though.

Great pre-pay price. All staff and amenities were great. Would definitely recommend. Continental breakfast worked great for this type 2 diabetic. I travel 30 - 40 days per year on business and another 20 to 30 days per year for leisure. Of note: We travel by motorcycle as much as possible, while not on our bike for this trip we did notice that the staff was courteous to motorcyclists that stopped. This is a big thing for me!

I was really pleased with my stay at the Best Western Inn & Suites. A good place to stay. I was on business and I stay in a lot of hotels. This hotel had excellent rooms and a convenient breakfast all for a reasonable price. I recommend this hotel.
