Clean, friendly, value hotel with good restaurants options attached to the hotel. I would stay at this hotel every time that I am in the market. Rooms are clean and up to date, staff is friendly and helpful

A lovely hotel with open areas attached to the conference center. The room was nicely decorated with several seating options, a small fridge, microwave and coffee maker. The king size bed was comfortable and there were plenty of pillows. The internet and TV worked very well. The bar and restaurant were also attached to the hotel.

Stayed in this hotel because of a family wedding. Room was clean and comfortable. Bed slept well and pool area was nice amenity. The breakfast was OK - hot options and cold. Nothing special but certainly comfortable.

I was traveling solo and didn't shut bathroom door until after I got out of shower in a.m. Hanging on hook behind door were 2 dirty towels. Gave me the creeps. It made me wonder if the rest of the room had been property cleaned. Told the front desk when I checked out. Will see if they do anything for...

We are so sorry that both the housekeeper and the inspector missed those towels that were hanging on the robe hook on the back of the door. As you know, we do deliver on what we offered as compensation for our oversight. Again, our apologies for missing those and rest assured, we did share your feedback at our morning housekeeping...

I have stayed here a couple of times lately and while it is on the expensive end for BW, it is much less expensive than the other hotel in the area. Rooms are clean and fresh. Internet is good, and the showers are full sized. To cinch the deal, Ruffs Sports Bar is just down the hall!

Internet is sooo important when you're traveling, isn't it!? Very happy to read you found ours to work well, and an adult size shower to boot! Thanks for the Ruff's shout out, we're fans of the Totchos (Tater Tot Nachos), yum! See you again soon!

Hotel is categorized as 3 star. I found it pleasant but lacking in cleanliness. Sheets needed to be replaced, not just cleaned. The internet is useless. Otherwise, they have nice facilities and good food, big pool.

Thank you for your feedback John H. As I mentioned in my direct response to your hotel survey, we are so sorry that you had such a worn set of sheets. We typically pull sheets (and Terry) when they get worn or have stains that won't come out and we donate them. In your case, it appears we missed your...

Everything was perfect! It's hard to find excellent customer service these days, but was pleasantly surprised to find it at the Best Western Plus. I will recommend the Best Western Plus to others who are in need of a conference venue.

If you want the most comfortable no b.s. place on Willmar this is it. Everything is updated and clean. Beds are very comfortable. Have good business center/Internet. The bar and restaurant attached to hotel is the best in Willmar. Those seeking 24 hour food there is a Casey's directly across the street.

Really enjoyed our stay here. Excellent staff, including Samantha at the front desk. Comfy room, nice breakfast. Bonus - you can walk right into the Willmar Conference Center. A couple of things that could make stay even better - I like firmer pillows and a full-length mirror in the room would be great.
