So I gave this place an excelent not because it's some 5 star hotel, but for what you get for the price, it's definitely excellent. First of all let me say that Motel 6 is cheap, but it's a terrible brand. And other brands like Holiday Inn just offer up an attractive rate and then get you on pet fees, wifi fees and maybe in the downtown areas on ridiculous parking prices.
I've stayed in two different Best Westerns in the past 2 days in New Mexico and they were both fantastic as they didn't charge a pet fee for my dog, parking was free, wifi was free on an open network. They have laundry facilities and this Best Western even has room service and they give you a voucher to choose if you want breakfast or to use it towards another restaurant item which is awesome because I never wake up for breakfast or make it in time. Some hotels even had a breakfast from just 6a-9a which I think is so funny - but this place does from 6a-11a.
The rooms didn't have that smoke smell that you get in many places even in the non smoking rooms.
Best of all? The staff here are so friendly and helpful. One even brought plastic silverware up to me when I forgot to get some at the local market.
They're all just super friendly and very well trained. I would even venture to say that I feel like I would rather stay here than a super nice designer hotel because I feel like I'm getting true value for my money and much more even.
It's even in a pretty great location next to the town and there is a good walk and closeby variety of shops and restaurants within walking distance.
