The first room we were given was not cleaned properly. We were moved to another room and it was fine. Overall our stay was okay. I noticed they were doing improvements while we were there. This was our fourth stay at this location.

Very nice place to have a reception. We were able to accomodate approximately 150 people comfortably. The banquet room was newly remodeled. Minisha and her staff were extremely helpful throughout the set up. Whether it be a forgotten item or one that just didn't work, Minisha was very creative in finding a solution. Would definitely recommend.

My wife and I have been staying at this location on area visits over the last five years. The facility has been undergoing upgrades. The ownership and staff are very accommodating and reflect small town warmth. Try an odd numbered room for water and wooded view as well as morning sun. This location is a wonderful alternative to more costly...

I wanted to take my son somewhere for his 16th birthday. And he requested Internet , a pool, and movie channels. We got it all. We had 2 breakfasts during our stay and it was excellent. There was so much to pick from and it all tasted great.

I stayed for 2 nights and it was very comfortable. I love the new transformations of the rooms and the lobby. The morning breakfast is so much better than before. I will stay again and tell my friends how comfortable I was during this stay!

My stay at the Best Western was one of pure elation! My day started off with a friendly smile from the staff and an excellently crafted waffle from the continental breakfast. I cannot say enough about the Best Western and it's well kept rooms and very comfortable beds! 10/10 would stay here again!

Great service, everybody was very friendly. Came with a big hockey group and they were very accommodating. Free breakfast in the morning which was sufficient. Would highly recommend staying at this hotel.
