We had a wonderful relaxation in this hotel. The hotel staff were fabulous. They were efficient, courteous, helpful and friendly. Super clean, nice and comfortable inside the room as well as outside. We had scrumptious breakfasts. Definitely, we will come back again in the near future. Highly recommendable.

Rooms all have clean towels and clean sheets/blankets. Rooms are spacious and some even have access to the parking lot. Great...

Reviewed January 9, 2017

Dirty mattresses, dirty rooms, no blankets or sheets available, very rude, and unprofessional staff. This was by far my worst experience at a Best Western. I have never encountered such a poor quality of service. I have emailed the manager, and still have not received a response. Overall, I do not recommend this hotel to anyone!
