I fail to understand why barking dogs areally permitted in the hotel at any hour. I suspect most guests do not want to have dogs in the hotel at any time of the day. Dogs bring their own level of cleanliness issues.

We are here to please, and we are so glad that you were able to relax here with your children and use our indoor pool. Especially this time of year with the bitter cold, it must feel good to get into a heated pool and just relax. We value your business and look forward to seeing you again.

The in-house Restaurant/Lounge, the Savory Downtown was also very pleasant, good food, decent prices, and a good variety of drinks. The Hotel also has a breakfast buffet which is better than average with...

Booked here for Black Friday November 2016. The location is just a few minutes away from the main shopping areas. The room was a little dated but served its purpose. The best part was the free hot/cold breakfast. I've found that the Best Western breakfasts are a little better quality than what's offered by other hotels, we enjoyed it. Next...

We intended to drive all the way home but due to tiredness decided to stop and were fortunate to find this Best western. We had a good nights rest and breakfast before setting off on the last lap of our journey.

It was a great place to stay. Reasonably priced, clean and an easy 5-10 minute drive to shopping and restaurants, and a short drive from the highway. The staff was super friendly and kind. Overall it was a very positive experience.

The decorations for Christmas are nice and in quantity. They even have some charaters that kids will enjoy. The breakfast room is big enough to accomodate a lot of people. Free parking is available behind the hotel.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in Sept/Oct of this year. We loved the place. It is centrally located, has a restaurant and bar, and comfortable rooms. We both wanted this to be our "Go To" hotel when we visit our son and his family in Watertown. However, this hotel committed a serious fallacy. My wife and I...
