“Less Than Ideal”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

I recently visited the wonderful town of St. Michael's with my family of four for a quick one night getaway. While I wasn't expecting the Four Seasons when I booked this hotel, I came away disappointed even with low expectations. The room itself was dated and "dorm-like". The bathroom especially was a disappointment with intermittent warm water and a dull atmosphere. One of the primary reasons we chose this hotel was for a simple pool area that our kids could enjoy. But unfortunately it was empty with no signs of being operations in the near future. To top it all off, the price for this hotel, due to the lack of options in the area, was frustrating given the quality that you were receiving. St. Michael's is a wonderful place with plenty of quaint B&Bs and a few very nice hotels. This place does not fall into that category.

Hotel is very dated with small, uncomfortable rooms. Nothing is remotely nice about it except the mattress. Hotel charged a rate higher than that quoted on the phone when making reservations. Breakfast was unattended, and items were not re-stocked when gone.

Stayed one night. As soon as we checked in, I had to give my kids a bath and the water was the smell and color of iron. There were black hairs all in the tub and on the bathroom floor that I cleaned up. The ceiling vent fan in the bathroom was completely filled with dust. Found 3 or 4 spiders in the bathroom. So very dirty! Especially when you are spending $200 a night even if it is the "Best Western". Breakfast and coffee was gross. Would not stay here again. Will stay in St. Michael's where the hotels are probably way cleaner!

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely motel. The rooms were attractively decorated, spacious, and clean. We were not far from Saint Michaels, which was our tourist destination. We chose it because our little dog was welcome. The staff were friendly and pleasant. Although we did not use it, the swimming pool was nicely located in the back of the property, and the breakfast room was spacious and attractive.

Good location, but the room was a disappointment. The mattress was hard and uncomfortable, with pillows that needed to be replaced. I woke up both mornings with back pain, which is very unusual for me. The bedroom area was clean, but the bathroom floor, shower tile, ceiling, and back of toilet had mold growing, Yuck! At checkout, the lady didn't know how to split the bill using 2 credit cards. After she tried twice, we gave up and settled on using one card. Breakfast was okay.

This hotel/motel is okay for bare bones. Stayed during the St Michael's Winefest, one of the biggest events in town. The staff had not information and really didn't know much. The room was smelly and in several areas, I believe, there was water damage. It was clean enough. Coffee is awful, so if you are a coffee drinker prepare to walk down the street to coffee kiosk or convenient store. Breakfast are small and always packed. We called and asked about distance from "in-town" and were told "very close, within walking distance." This is absolutely not true for the average person. Although we were able to drive and catch shuttle or walk.

Very disappointed. Second time at a best western -- think I will give up on this chain.

Room Tip: Front rooms have parking right in front of rooms.

Was fine, clean, but my dog found some fritos under the furniture! The rug under the sink and frig was wet; I reported that; Service was for the most part fine; trainee at the desk was the dumbest ever I've encountered in a hotel, I would not be confident that she got anything correct, including spelling a name; but she was sweet; heat and air worked great; very convenient location for St Michaels
