“Good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2010

This place was a great find after a long ride up from Georgia. It was quiet, clean, comfortable, and everything worked. We traveled with a dog and found plenty of room outside to get her out to move around. Restaurants were available for dinner. I do not know what it might be like during the school year (college town) but I will stay here again if I am heading back up I-81. A very good value in a place with limited choices.

3 MAJOR ISSUES WITH ROOM #113
1. Room #113 is located right next to an outside entrance/exit door. This door SLAMS SHUT each and every time someone goes in or out. Not only is there a HUGE bang, but the ENTIRE room vibrates including the bed on which you are trying to sleep!!!!!! Last evening I set my alarm for 8:00a.m. as I am on vacation and I hoped to sleep late. Well; I am awakened at least 10-15 times between 5:30-8:00a.m. by this door. Try to imagine a tractor trailer accidentally hitting a brick wall. That is what it SOUNDS and FEELS like. The hotel should do 1 or MORE of the following: 1. Keep guests OUT of room #113. 2. FIX THE DOOR. 3. Lock this door during certain hours to be courteous to ALL guests!!!
2. Even with the heating unit on OFF, the heater turned on and off by itself !!!!!! We had to UNPLUG the unit to get the unit to stop running!!! We had to TURN the unit OFF because 1. It was TOO LOUD 2 .IT BLEW the curtains so that we NO LONGER HAD PRIVACY!!!!!!! There was NO WAY to redirect the air.
3. The bathroom sink handles are impossible to reach. Someone mounted a shelf directly above the sink handles so you have to bend over to find them and them and then feel your way to turn them on!!!

THE owner should be ashamed of themselves for either NOT KNOWING these issues exist or for knowing and not doing anything about them!!!!!! I will ONLY stay again at this hotel IF I CANNOT find anywhere else to stay!!!!

I moved to this hotel after being bit repeatedly by bugs at the Shippen Place Hotel. The Best Western was CLEAN. The staff members were pleasant, good breakfast and close to campus. I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel over the Shippen Place.

Nice room. Clean. Comfortable bed. Good shower with light. Fluffy towels. Sink seperate from bathroom. Breakfast offering included Belgin waffles. High speed internet, fridge and digital TV. Back off I 81 far enough that you don't hear traffic, still convenient to get to.
Only complaint is that the bathroom door hits the commode when it is opened and closed....poor engineering on someone's part. Small inconvenience compared to the plusses here.

We were driving back from a funeral and stopped for one night. The place was clean, but the carpets were worn and stained. Okay for one night, but I would not plan an extended stay.

I expect a Best Western to be of better quality. While the external amenities were fine, the room itself was a one star in my book. First of all the sheets and towels were well worn and beyond their useful lives. Both were thin and the bath towels were actually fraying. The mattress was stiff and once again a one star bed. The tile in the bathroom was missing grout in places and the hook on the back of the bathroom door was no where near straight.

The continental breakfast was as minimal as could be to be considered breakfast at all. We passed it up

  • Liked — Check-in was good
