“What a dump! Where is the PLUS in Best Western Plus”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2011

We stayed with our kids and were excited to use the pool. What a shock the pool tiles were missing and rusty! I didn't even let my kids swim it was to dangerous. The plastic plants were almost bare, dusty and faded with age. I heard the night desk clerk man Chris talking about how there were prostitues in the hotel. I was scared out of my mind. If you want a low class stay for a top class price feel free to stay at this hotel. I have to say that the staff was all very nice and very honest about all the hotel problems. I feel bad that there boss seems not to care about fixing any of these problems. I will be letting everyone in my circle know not to stay at this joke of a hotel Best Western should kick them out of the group they are not worthy of the name.

The front desk staff was nice but the rooms were terrible. The first room they put us in was small dingy and creepy. So they moved us to a different room which was one step up but still pretty poor. The bathroom appeared to be recenly updated and was nice. But the bed was hard, hard with sand paper sheets. The room had a couch and chair but they were clearly flithy and the fabric was torn and when you sat in them you were nearly sitting on the floor. The hotel walls were thin and we heard everything in the surrounding rooms. The hallways smelled like a mixture of ciggeret smoke and stinky feet.

and that's really my only complaint. Everything else was fine for an inexpensive hotel. We got the right size room, the room was big enough, the bathroom was neat, the breakfast was pretty decent for complimentary, but the sheets were awful. This would keep me from staying again.

The staff was very friendly. We checked in with no issues. The room initially smelled like it had been a smoking room in the past. Don't let that deter you from staying here. The only drawback to this hotel is that the walls are paperthin. So thin that we heard the man snoring next door. Turn on the air conditioner and it is not an issue. Breakfast was AWESOME. Again the staff was great. This hotel is a great place for an overnight stay

We had our wedding reception here. The food at nearly $20 a plate was awful, actually down right embarrassing. The room we had rented had no air conditioning and on a July day with the temp at 87 and high humidity, it was hotter than hades. Our complaints warranted nothing and we were running around the hotel taking fans from wher ever we could get them. We had a room reserved for our over night guest to eat breakfst the next morning and watch us open gifts. We were told by the head waitress when we got there that no one had told her and that it would be too much work for them. Lots of staff talking about other staff members and just very unprofessional. They did give us a 10% discount on our final bill, which we had to insist on. Please........just pass this place of your list of possiblities.

Why stay here:

1. Cheap room
2. Smoking allowed in the hallways
3. Indoor pool, hot tub, and sauna
4. In-laws live in Hudson, WI
5. Free HBO, free internet service, and breakfast


Why to avoid staying here:

1. Cheap room
2. Hallways reeked of smoke
3. Indoor pool could be far from your room (sucked walking in cold, smelly hallways)
4. Probably newer and cleaner hotels nearby
5. Old TV in our room didn't work well
6. Room was clean, but everything we touched felt "greasy & dirty"

Didn't try "free breakfast" because we didn't want to put our winter coats on for the cold, long walk through the smoke-filled hallways to the lobby.

Even if the price were around $50/night, we would not stay here again.

I stayed at this hotel this past Saturday night, and was very impressed. I ate in the bar, which was very tasty. Burgers and hot wings were yummy, and the bartender was friendly and told me about what I could do around town. The drinks were good and reasonably priced. After getting back, I took a dip in the pool/hot tub (well maintained) and hit the sack. The room was nice and clean, which is what I look for in a hotel room... Breakfast the next morning was good... Lots of variety and the staff greeted us with a smile. I would go back.
