“You don't want to stay there!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2011

We needed a hotel as a stopover between Savannah, Georgia and our home. After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor and checking them out on the Bed Bug Registry, we decided to make a reservation. What a mistake!! The room was in dire need of a makeover, especially the bed that creaked every time one of us moved, which was often. We were on the first floor, and it sounded as though there was a wild party going on outside of our room. I eventually broke down and called the front desk. She said she would go out and talk to them, which she did. She told them that somebody called the front desk about the noise level and they should go into their room. They didn't go without a lot of yelling first! The next morning when I went to the bathroom, a big black bug crossed my path. I screamed, and my husband came running! The only saving grace about this hotel was the breakfast. I only got cold cereal, but my husband said that it wasn't bad. If you're looking for comfort, this is not the place for you!

While traveling cross country, my son and I stayed at the Best Western in Emporia, VA. We used a coupon in a travel magazine we got at the Virginia Welcome Center. The price we paid was extremely low and the room was really nice. The bed was comfortable and the room was large and clean. The location was great - close by convenient stores and restaurants. The friendly front desk agent even gave us a list of places that deliver. It was one of the nicest places we stayed during our journey.

Room Tip: You can't beat this place for value!

If you're looking for a place to stay while traveling along 95 the Best Western in Emporia, Va is the place. It's right off 95 Exit 11 and near some of the best southern cooking in town.
I've been staying there for three years while traveling for work; no matter what time or weather I arrive, I'm greeted with a smile. The coffee is always warm, the rooms clean and Lee , who serves breakfast has the best waffles you'll ever taste. The rates a fair and the quality great. Just ask for Pam, Tia, Angie or Raven.

My daughter was traveling (solo with a small dog) from NY to NC and stopped here for the evening. I phone for a reservation because she was in heavy traffic. Front dest had me phone back twice. When she arrived to check in she was asked to leave the lobby because she had her dog with her, (IN HER PURSE). REALLY, the dog was in her purse. Be aware if you are by yourself. She was very uncomfortable leaving her car running or leaving the dog in the car when temperatures where in high 80's. The front dest clerk did hurry along the check in process and her stay became very pleasant. Room was clean, beds OK. Breakfast was very good, and morning front desk clerk was wonderful.

I was coming down to the area last minute on a Thursday night for the weekend and had no idea where I would be staying. A friend of mine had told me that the Best Western was nice. When I walked in I was greeted by a women name Tia. I had told her my situation and she could of not been more nice and helpful while the whole time had a smile on her face, repeating "Sir it's not a problem, glad I can help you!" As I turned to walk away she stopped me reminding me of the breakfast they would be serving in the morning. I ask would she be there for breakfast and still with a smile on her face she laughed and said "no but I will be here Saturday morning, Sir." I was so pleased to see a warm smile greeting me after a 12 hour drive from Boston, MA. So the next time I come down, I will be staying at the Best Western Emporia asking for Tia.
