I have stayed many, many nights at the Best Western Northgate Inn and in hindsight, it's given me many amusing stories to share. That's never a good sign.
I was your average mid-week guest at this hotel. Only staying there as it was a convenient location for work. Believe me, if there was another hotel in this price range in this location, I would have stayed there.
This hotel is not typical of other Best Westerns I have stayed at in North America. There is no breakfast buffet available, only a second floor restaurant that I never entered. The Somerset pub is attached to the back of the hotel.
The rack rates and corporate rates for this hotel are very expensive considering what you get. I don't blame the staff. I get the impression that the owners do very nicely from the hotel and don't feel it's necessary to invest in longterm staffing.
However, with some of my experiences there, I would have appreciated more experienced staff. Things that jump to mind are the immigration raid, and the fire alarm that the staff member didn't know how to de-activate. It's all too much at 3am.
So in conclusion, it's clean, usually most things work. Don't expect a hint of luxury. If you've turned up in a company truck, you're in the right place.
