We arrived after a long night and day of driving and were very pleased with this hotel and its amenities. Nice room with a king-sized bed and a wall half-way across the room to separate the bed from the living area that included a sofa-bed. This was where our kids slept, and it was really nice to have a bit...

Thanks for choosing the BEST WESTERN Gateway Grand as the kick-off to your trip! We're thrilled that you enjoyed your stay! The pool deck is a great place to recharge after a long trip, nothing's better than fresh air, sunshine, and a refreshing dip in our pool or hot tub. You picked the perfect room type, with the King Deluxe!...

I booked a room for 3 nights using Best Western International website. The bottom line is that the Hotel said "We can't help you - you booked through a web site - BWI" They would not accept that BWI was Best Western International and just repeated that web sites spoof real sites. I had an email confirming the reservation with...

I stayed on a business trip. I did not notice the noise from the interstate. The only problem I had was that I went to get water from the little cooler that had water, ice, and lemon in the lobby and a chunk of mold fell out into my cup. Other than that my stay was great. I didn't even...
