This Best Western is an older building that has been recently upgraded. As a basic-service hotel, its pluses are:
. On the highway and easily visible/accessible.
. Pet-friendly and adjacent to forest trails that make for a nice stroll for pups.
. Exceptionally friendly down-home helpful staff.
. Clean and recently updated.
. Free wifi.
. Fabulous breakfast.
It's down-side is that despite the upgrades, it is still an older building with the usual problems accompanied by older construction and poorer soundproofing, so we could hear noises from the room next door. Rooms are accessed through outdoor promenades and that adds a little to the noise. On the upside, rooms at the back of the hotel get no highway traffic noise.
The place was troubled with a moth infestation when we were there, but this is a problem through the whole region at the moment, so no one can fault the hotel for this. An earlier reviewer said that windowsills had dead moths, and it appears that the cleaning staff have taken note of this as we didn't find any accumulation of dead moths in our room. Staff say that being next to a forest adds to the problem.
We booked into this hotel because we couldn't find any other hotel available that would allow pets, and so kudos to Best Western for making pets one of their priorities for travelers. Despite the mid-range rating I am giving this property, it is still an acceptable one-night stay for the mile-munching traveler just looking for a place to stop. Still, it is a tad over-priced.
The hot breakfast was excellent.
