“Good/Not So Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Stayed here twice - once at the beginning of our trip and once at the end. First time was quite nice - once you FIND the place. I called 5 times on the road for directions after riding around and around and after they transferred me to the operator, the recording started all over again. They could at least mention that they are busy and put me on hold. Annoying. But the room was nice - quiet - even though vey busy. Breakfast was okay. Enjoyed the blueberry bagels. Now, about the second stay...very quiet - hardly anyone there it seemed. When we opened the door to our room, the very strong smell of mildew hit us. The girl at the desk was very accommodating and put us in another room which still had a mildew smell, but not as bad. We decided to stay in that room because we had just traveled 7 hours and we were tired. The bath was evidently SUPPOSE to be for disabled - how they got the bath chair in the tub was beyond me. Anyway, we didn't need it. There was no exhaust fan which may have helped the mildew smell. Other than that, it was okay. Did like the new "clean technology" used for the remote control. First time we had encountered that and studies show the remote control collects the most amount of surface bacteria in a hotel room.

Thank you for telling us about both of your experiences at our hotel. First of all let me apologize for the second visit. We never want any guest to feel like they have to settle for any room that they are put in. I am very happy that the desk clerk was able to get you a second room.
We do have the clean remotes in every single room. They are much easier to keep clean so that our guests enjoy a clean and comfortable stay

Thanks

We love our NASCAR friends. Even though we only get to see you guys a couple times a year, it is always a BLAST when you come through. We do have over 32 restaurants within a mile radius of us with something for everyone. Being located next to the mall helps especially when the weather has been like it has been lately with the ups and downs and unexpected.

Make sure next time you are in town that you stop by and see us again!

Sounds like we scored several "touchdowns" during your visit. I greatly appreciate your review of our hotel and staff during your stay. We pride ourselves on being the best in the business and it sounds like this time we did exactly that. Come back and see us soon!

Pleasant stay, cats allowed, unlike the Hyatt. Outside door would not close enough to prohibit unwanted entry, easily repaired. Breakfast area was too small, but serviceable. They had biscuits with sausage gravy, and oatmeal nut no grits. No thermostat in the room, controls at the heater. We did not want to turn on the heater on arrival, but room too cold in AM. Didn't want then to turn on the lights and wake up wife. Don't want that.

Thank you for your most honest review. We are in the process of installing thermostats on the walls in the rooms. As you know this takes a little bit of time and being that we stay busy 85% of the time, the rooms we need to get into are the ones always occupied (mostly our designated pet rooms). Yes we do allow pets!!! Please call the hotel for specifics on our Pet Policy.

As for the door, we already have our maintenance guy on top of that. Definitely not something we want slipping by us. Thanks for letting us know

Because of proximity to family the Ramada was suggested to us. It was a TERRIBLE hotel! We got in late, so we stayed with no heat one night. Called Best Western told them our problem and they were so nice and helpful and because of our situation we were allowed to check in early. Everything was clean, staff VERY friendly, very close to mall and dining. Only negative would be the breakfast. Hot items cold. Not a big selection, however, beverages available all hours. Great place to stay!!

Oh no, sounds like you started your trip in Roanoke off not great. I am glad that we could help you out and that we could accommodate you. I do apologize for the breakfast. The thing we hear time and time again is about the size of our breakfast area. I hope that with our new renovation that is planned for this fall, that we can reconfigure that area to make it more customer friendly as that is what we here at Best Western pride ourselves on is giving GREAT customer service

Most important to travelling is a clean, safe, friendly hotel! The breakfast was very good also. Maintenance was being done on the hotel, so a little noisy - but must be done sometimes, so didn't bother us much - quiet during night.

Thank you friend for your great review. We are adding a fitness center and guest laundry service as well as looking into the future to expand our tiny breakfast area - better known to us on the property level as the headache area (insert laughter here).
We pride ourselves on being clean and we do appreciate that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope that you come back to see us again
