“Nice Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2009

This was a nice hotel with friendly staff. Wi Fi worked great, rooms clean, and a better then average Best Western Breakfast. Price was right, it is just off the interstate/beltway, and it is convenient to varied restaurants and stores such as Walgreens. I would stay here again. I have stayed in many BW's, and this is above most.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2009

While on vacation with two grandchildren, my wife and I stayed at this hotel for one night. Since we arrived in the late evening and left soon after breakfast, we did not have the opportunity to fully explore or evaluate this facility. The beds were comfortable and this met our objective for the stay. There was only one elevator and since the hotel appeared to be full, I resorted to using the stairs to bring additional items in from the car, to a second floor room. The breakfast are was small with little spacing between the tables. There was not a visible breakfast area attendant and guest were pretty much on their own to figure things out or get help from other guests. Our destination was the Science Center. It was convenient to get from the hotel to the Science Center.

I got this hotel off priceline. I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical when Best Western accepted my bid, but I was pleasantly surprised when we got to the hotel. Everything from the check in to the room was very nice. The room was very modern looking & it was hard to believe that I was staying in only a 2.5 star hotel. The breakfast in the morning was very good also.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2009

We just stayed at the BW Clive and found it to be really comfortable. Check-in was efficient and hassle free and Dwayne was happy to switch our room once we realized the elevator and ice machine were right next door. The free breakfast hit the spot - nice selection of things to choose from. Cathy was at the front desk upon check-out and was most helpful with mapquest driving directions to the nearest Starbucks. We found it quite convenient that Cracker Barrel is next door AND the location is just off I80. For the price, it doesn't get much better than this. Discounts available for AAA members.

The BW Clive Inns & Suites was a great place to stay. The rooms were clean and spacious. We were traveling with our kids and they have adjoining rooms (which I thought had been phased out of hotels, I'm glad to see that they are making a comeback). This made it so much more reassuring for us. The doors to the hallway are six panel solid doors. The pool area was very clean, maybe a little small, but the water was warm to swim in. That is a big plus for parents that swim with their kids. The staff was VERY friendly and efficient. We will be making several trips through Clive over the next 18 months and this will be the place that we stay. We were all very impressed.
