We arrived to check in and there was a wedding reception in the lobby -- made us uncomfortable to be checking in right in the middle of a private reception. The room was okay -- it needed some maintenance and definitely needed to be cleaned better. The bed was not bad. The location was difficult to find way on the... More

I'm always greeted with courteous and professional staff members at every hotel that I stay at. Since I stay mostly at certain ones, they have become more like family than just personnel staff members. The pet fee is very reasonable. I really enjoy the hot breakfast bar in the mornings. If a guest leaves hungry, they are either too picky... More

upon 3 pm check in-- the room was not ready-several rooms were not and many people were waiting in the lobby area. The sunrise breakfast was from 6:30-9:30. We arrived @ 7:30 and not much food was out. Slim pickings. Noisy and fights in the hotel that the police had to be called.

I came for a conference. The staff i encountered were friendly enough. The facility is very dated. There were plumbing issues, cleanliness issues in bathroom and bed. A traveling companion found what appeared to be a bed bug in her bed.

Stayed at the Starlite Village because of a meeting that was heard there. Basic room, bed was on the soft side. The room & bathroom appeared to be clean. Took awhile for the heater to kick in and warm up the room.

I was pleased with our stay. The pool was nice, the breakfast was substantial, the workers were helpful. The room was clean. My only complaint was that the room was very tight, especially the bathroom.

We enjoyed the very large family friendly pool. Lots of space for adults to lounge while kids are swimming. We really enjoyed our room as well. It was a very large suite with a beautiful bathroom. It was a dog friendly hotel too.

this was my first stay in fort dodge so I didnt know what or where to get lodging I am pretty confident that best westerns are all pretty nice places. I was afford an up grade room being a rewards member. the bar/restaurant was newly remodeled and the steak I had was probably one of the best.

The staff is not very friendly. I stood at the front desk for over 20 minutes waiting to check in because there was only one person there and he was on the phone. He didn't even look at me until others walked up. Then he put the person on the phone on hold and said he would get his manager... More

The pillows are small and no rollaway bed for added guests in a king size room. Great breakfast, clean room, nice helpful staff. The hot tub by pool is very small for such a big hotel, the smallest we have been in. Maybe should have 2 hot tubs like some hotels! The pool is nice maybe could be a little... More
