My wife and I just wanted a one-night staycation close enough to our home in the Salt Lake Valley that we could spend some time on the day of and the day after, while being far enough away that it would provide different surroundings.
This motel is just a quick right turn at McDonalds, or two right turns if you pass the McDonalds turn, from the street that goes up from the freeway exit.
The check-in was nearly seamless, as I gave them my name and they went right to my reservation, which I had made through AARP Expedia.
We found our room (room 210) clean and tidy. My wife consulted the map to find the best parking for our room at the end of the wing as I drove us around from the check-in entrance, so we ignored the suggestion from the front desk clerk to go up the hall from the lobby. From the lobby, the best way is up the hall, as she suggested, but the parking at the end of the wing provided near direct access and we only had to walk down a short staircase to get to the hallway for our room near that end entrance.
Our standard, two queen room (all rooms are nonsmoking) included an iron, hair dryer, and safe. The safe is extra, but refundable it you don't use it. Be sure to ask for the refund if your billing included it. I think the coat rack near the front door is designed to hold skis, too. It has two parallel pegs sticking out between each set of coat hooks.
I would complain only about three minor things about the room:
1) Coffee: The 4-cup coffee maker in the room can accommodate regular 4-cup filters, so I'd suggest that you provide your own. The coffee pack that comes with the room falls far short of making coffee. It wasn't even what I'd call flavored water. I ran the water through the maker three times and it still came out like barely flavored water. I gave up. The free coffee they provide near the front desk was also quite weak. Even the dark was barely what I would call coffee, if that. I'd really rather call it barely flavored, heated water. For comparison, we usually drink Folgers at home in a Mr. Coffee 4-cup drip coffee maker, at Folgers' suggested 1 T per 6 oz.
2) The TV remote control unit: The remote control unit was worn in the channel selector up and down and in a couple other places. Other than the up and down channel buttons, it had a couple places where it hesitated and required more than one push to get the television to respond. It also required a nearly head-on point to the television. The up and down channel buttons just would not move the channels, so I'd have to push the numbered buttons to change the channel every time, and sometimes, those would not make it respond properly, either.
3) Lack of sound-proofing: In the evening, while sitting on the beds, we had a hard time hearing the television when someone in the next room ran water for the toilet or shower. This happened only two or three times and didn't happen that we knew of during the night, so it was only a momentary nuisance for that short time each time.
The pool is small, but it is indoors. It ranges from 3 feet to 5 feet deep and is not for diving. The rooms surrounding the pool have a door that opens to the pool area, so the people who had those rooms seemed to monopolize the area in the evening.
The hot tub is a little larger than some.
We didn't use the pool or the hot tub. By the time we were back from our wanderings, the pool area was pretty full. We checked back a few times during the evening, but found it just as crowded each time, mostly by little kids, so we didn't want to venture in around all the splashing and noise. I'm sure it was great for the kids and their parents, though.
The pool area also includes a Ping-Pong table, which can be used for free. A pool table next to it does cost, though. I didn't get close enough to it to know how much it cost, but my guess is that it takes quarters at one end to release the balls for play.
The on-line brochure (http://bestwesternebrochure.com/BWPlusLandmarkInn/default.asp) mentions a breakfast buffet in the Pancake House part of the facility, but that is not the case. The free breakfast is served from 6 to 9 a.m. and comes with only certain choices. I'm including a picture of the menu in this review. Although it does have several choices on it, It is not what I would call a "Full Cook to Order Breakfast Menu" as mentioned in the brochure and on the main pages of the Web site (http://www.bwlandmarkinn.com/pcp301.html).
All in all, though, we were pleased with the accommodations and would not hesitate to stay here again under similar circumstances.
