The property is kept up and the front desk service is very good. Informative, reliable and friendly. The rooms are fine and it is quiet. They offer a cocktail service that is a nice touch at the end of the day. There are many restaurant choices that are walking distance from the property.

I was in charge of arrangements for our party of ~ 25. The original agreement encompassed 8 rooms. More than 2 1/2 months out from the event, I called and asked to add one more room, making nine in total. I was assured it would be no problem, and that revised paperwork would be sent. Revised paperwork never showed up.... More

The room was OK however on your site advertised a queen bed with whirlpool. The bed looked and felt like a full bed. I owe a queen bed and my bed looked bigger than the one I stayed in. So I was a bit disappointed I got charged for a queen when it was a full. .

Typical Best Western, not luxurious, but comfortable, clean, and roomy. Nice lobby with a small bar, several breakfast options, comfortable beds. Staying here for a family wedding and there was plenty of room to congregate and enjoy the company of others.

Our room was nice and big and comfortable. Room service forgot to clean our room the first day. The exercise equipment was not good. The treadmill and elliptical were terrible. The bike was fine. I needed to ask at front desk for something to clean off the machines. The breakfast very very average. It would have been nice to have... More

The staff was very helpful and the check in person was super helpful. The pool is a nice large pool. The location to the Dunes Park is perfect and convenient. The only complaint I had is the room needed to be vacuumed a little better along the edge of the wall but other than that, totally happy.

I would come back to a Best Western in the future because it was clean, but would like a warmer pool to swim in. The breakfast need at least 2 waffle makers and more scrambled egg days and biscuits and gravy was good. Rooms were neat with fireplace and enjoyed our beds being made every day.
