The fitness room needs upgrading - old, poorly functioning equipment. Also the rooms could use some basic maintenance, but overall good experience. Facility was clean and the staff was very pleasant. We would stay there again.

Overall we were okay with our stay. The person at the front desk was welcoming and helpful. We found the grounds and hotel to be clean. We did experience some discomfort from the noisy neighbors across the hall, but it was a weekend and we can’t blame the hotel for that! Our room was comfortable and looked to be clean;... More

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.
