This was a stop over on our way to Florida and it was everything I would expect from a Best Western. The bed was wonderful as are all Best Western beds. The room was very clean. Breakfast had a good assortment of hot and cold items. Overall a good experience-and would stay here again.

The room was very clean and spacious. The food bar was good and constantly being restocked. Staff was very friendly. Would recommend to anyone staying in the area. This was an unexpected stop for us. But a good one.

Great location right off the highway, clean and comfortable room, quiet floors, delicious breakfast and friendly staff. We stayed here twice on our vacation ... once heading north and then on the return trip. We will definitely stay at this hotel again! It's an excellent choice.
