An excellent alternative to the more expensive downtown hotels. Rooms are large, well equipped, and clean. Not close to downtown, so be aware when booking. Didn't use the restaurant, so I can't comment there. Recommended.

I have yet to be disappointed with a Best Western hotel. Friendly, helpful staff, extremely clean rooms, comfortable beds and nice pool. What more can you ask for? A nice restaurant with great food....they have that too!

We were traveling from Los Angeles, California and did not know the area or the hotel. The hotel was one of the cleanest hotels I have stayed...

Excellent pool with Adult only time - yes! Nice whirlpool. Rooms could use a refresh and with the hide-a-bed pulled out it was tricky...

We always enjoy staying at this hotel. When family visits from out of town, this is one of their first choices also. We have never had any issues with our stays at this hotel. We make it a point to let others know about the service we receive.
