“Avoidance is best”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

If you have been to a Best Western Plus before, your experience with this location will leave you with a bad taste. The hotel is currently at the site of major road construction. In order to leave the hotel and head south, you will need to drive north two miles and make a U-turn. Expect to drive a minimum of five miles for food or gas. The hotel is brand new, the common areas are nicely appointed with lone star tiling and fixtures, but the room furnishings do not reflect this decor. Many of the fixtures have extreme wear, like down to raw wood. The couch in the room was dirty and cushions were grooved. The room and the hotel interior are incongruent. The hotel room was hot on arrival. The manager stated that the rooms are maintained at 75 degrees and cool quickly, but I beg to differ. I am all for energy savings and conservation, but not the expense of comfort. I asked for another room, but was told they were unable to accomodate the request although the hotel was a ghost town. Needless to say, my stay was rather limited as I opted for another location.

Pros:
Easy to find.
Close to town.
Good location off of I-35.
Ample parking.
Good beds and very clean sheets.
Good towels.
Prompt, excellent service from front desk. Very efficient service, if a bit robotic, which is odd, because I have never dealt with that.
Rooms were sufficiently clean, BUT could use some dusting and deep cleaning in corners.

Cons:
PAINT COLORS IN ROOMS.. PSYCHODELIC MUSTARD YELLOW. Just no. Repaint in muted neutrals would score 100%!
Love that its family oriented, just NOT that whoever was running it cooking there strong smelling cuisine when we checked in.
Also kids running up and down hallway early in the morning and babies crying doesn't make for a restful sleep.
Have a bit more patience with check-out. Allow extra 15 minutes instead of calling @ 11:01 to see if we are on the way out. :/

Overall, very nice place, and with a few improvements, especially cleaning, no strong smelling personal cooking, and color changes in rooms, will be a keeper for years to come!

Its a nice place to stay. Its clean and beds are comfortable. We stay every year as part of Jehovah Witness convention; the only thing I don't like is the pool too small for a full hotel capacity. Breakfast is good eggs, waffles, cereal and coffee.

My family and I have been staying here for the past 3 years when we have to go to our Jehovah Witness Convention. It's a great hotel, very clean and quite. The breakfast is not just donuts and coffee it's a full breakfast, which helped us out with our meal expenses. Tony, the manager, is great, always very friendly and if something is wrong with your room he comes to the rescue to fix it or give you another room. We hope to stay here next year!

This is our second stay at this motel. It is very nice, clean, and convenient for us. Breakfast is good, beds are very comfy, and the showers are great. Mr.Tony Desai is so nice! He does everything he can to make sure your stay is perfect in every way.

I stayed there for a week, recently. Room well-appointed, comfortable, clean. Management is quite pleasant and helpful. Will be returning regularly. The halls and breakfast room are too warm for my taste, but not everyone likes things as chilly as I do. They don't move the thermostat up when I'm gone during the day. Glad I know it's there.
