I was pleasantly surprised when I got there. Very charming hotel. Room was spacious with lots of storage space and refrigerator. Very clean. AC... More

We had not stayed at a Best Western recently so we were pleasantly surprised at the nice décor, cleanliness and amenities at this hotel. It was a short walk to the Passport shuttle which we used to attend an event at the Rainbow Lagoon. Perfect in everyway! Enjoyed the breakfast and the pool.

Overall experience was great. The room was larger than expected and the front desk did everything they could to accommodate us. Special shout-out to receptionist Dilcia, she was superb. She helped with everything from last minute room changes/upgrades, to adjustments in parking. Other staff was friendly as well, but Dilcia stood out to us during our visit!

We were in room 328. The view was that of the "courtyard," aka the parking lot entrance, but the room was very nice. There were ample amenities in the restroom: toothbrush, razor, lotion, soaps, etc. My ONLY complaint was that the bathtub stopper didn't seem to work and, in fact, came out completely. In my morning rush, to my regret,... More

Service staff was not friendly. They were very inexperienced and unable to handle check in procedure. They do not accomodate additional towel requests. You are rationed to one towel every other day. Terrible experience.

Generally a pretty squared away hotel with welcoming surroundings. The service staff were always attentive and quick to respond; nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were clean and very well kept throughout our stay. Breakfast area needs more space. But the area is well taken care of. But let me make sure I mention the staff again... They were amazing!
