The towels and hair conditioner needs improving. My towel was scratchy and the ends were unraveling. The conditioner was runny and really did nothing. The egg patties and the way they cook the sausage in liquid definitely needs improving. Kitchen was not as well stocked as most Best Westerns.

We were traveling across country on a move with our dog. That limits where we are going to stay, both the dog part and the fact that all we really needed was a place to decompress after a day of driving and get a good night sleep. The Best Western in Van Buren greatly surpassed those needs. The rooms have... More

With all of the competition in hotels nowadays, I make an effort to stay at Best Westerns. While some fall a little short of being perfect, they all tend to be safe, clean, and affordable. This one exceeded all expectations.

We arrived at the hotel after a 8 hour drive quite tired . The very friendly check in process is exactly what we needed. The king room was somewhat dated, but the room was in great shape, and the bed quite comfortable. The free breakfast was standard Best Western, and was as good as usual. The person at the front...

The best I've seen in a Best Western and the price is great too. I highly recommend this one. It looks as though it has been recently remodeled and is in excellent condition. Very friendly staff and I was allowed to park my motorcycle under the lobby porch roof.

Did not meet my expectations for Best Western. The breakfast was not fresh and less than desirable. The rooms (x2) appeared clean superficially, but were not. Ceiling had leak spots in several places. The beds were not comfortable.

The hotel is older, but the interior has been updated. The lobby is modern and the rooms have updated furniture and amenities. The TV was large with a good selection of channels. Free wireless internet is available. The breakfast buffet was good. Very quiet, no noise from outside or next door.

It appears the rooms were recently remodeled...ours was excellent. Nice beds, close to the interstate, and good restaurants nearby. Great place to stop for a respite on a road trip...highly recommend it! The breakfast area is a bit small but big enough to accommodate the folks that were there when we stayed.
