With limited hotel options in Corvallis, Oregon, we ended up choosing this hotel due to reviews and the reputation of the Best Western chain. We were there during Mom's Weekend and it's frustrating that they increased their rates over 100% just to take advantage of a lot of people being in town for the weekend. ($269+ Mom's weekend vs. $110+ for the following weekend). That's just not right!
We were on the 2nd floor. Would recommend the 3rd floor as then you won't hear the people above you. Would also suggest you ask for a room towards the Motel 6 and away from 9th Street. Having a balcony is nice for drinking your morning coffee.
The hotel just went though a recent remodel, but it was inconsistent and several areas didn't feel 'clean' and certainly not 'new'. They also make a big claim of a 'full breakfast'. It's the same type of limited buffet, cereal, breads, juices, etc. as any other 'breakfast included' hotel. The coffee needs to be made with higher quality filters as small particles were floating on the surface of each cup of coffee. This was consistent with all cups of coffee, both mornings. At first I thought maybe my coffee mug was dusty and I rinsed it out and tried again. No change. Ended up going across the street to Starbucks (which I'm not fond of and it's expensive for a simple cup of coffee).
Our room had a very small bathroom (tiny) and the room layout was very strange with way too many chairs in the part of the room that had the TV and refrigerator. Not a good utilization of space and it was awkward to lay in bed and try and watch TV. It would have been better to have the 'sitting area' next to the sliding glass door and balcony. The lights from the parking lot shines into the room at night (shutter blinds that don't block out the light because the slats are big and thick). And it's noisy if you want to sleep with the balcony door open.
The hot/cold water in the sink was backwards and we ran out of hot water our first morning so only one of us got to shower. Afternoon hot water was fine.
The outdoor carpet on the small balcony was water damaged and looked moldy. Made the entire room feel dirty.
On a positive note, the bath towels were nice and fluffy and the bed linens were nice. And they provided plenty of towels. Sink/vanity area is very small and the sink counter makes using the closet almost impossible.
Staff was friendly, but several times no one was at the front desk (maybe working behind the wall?). But the staff was helpful and professional. Nice to have free newspaper to read and if you like cookies, they were always available for a quick sweet!
Pool area needed more umbrellas for shade (or other shade options). It was windy during our stay and the umbrella's couldn't be used because they weren't secured to the ground and would tip over.
It was fine for a room to sleep in, but certainly not what was advertised and certainly not a value at the price they charged.
