So this hotel is older and could use some updates, but it is still nice and deserves a look. Many of the surrounding hotels are $100+ and we were able to book for less. The room was clean and spacious enough (including a couch) with a king. The bed was comfy and the room included a microwave and fridge.

The barroom is on the somewhat small side. The counter was new and the sink located outside the water closet. The tub and toilet area was small and could use some updates, but overall not bad!

Breakfast is included. It is includes hot and cold items, but did run out quickly. The staff was friendly and tried to keep up with the crowed, but it took a little while during rush time.

Overall, I would totally stay here again. Though on the older side, for the price it definitely met my high expectations. Well done Best Western!

This was not the first time I've used this hotel. It has been updated but not enough. It was clean enough and affordable enough that I would stay again but the rooms are showing some wear. The hotel staff was very friendly and we were told it was due for another update in the near future.

Room was clean, bed comfortable, many restaurants in the area. Easy in & out. Stop over on our way to the smoky mountains. Able to walk to several restaurants in the area. At the cross road of 65 & 72. Staff checked on us after we checked in to see if we needed anything.

I was traveling with my daughter and needed a place to stay for a few nights. The beds were comfortable and the room was very clean. There is a pool in the back that isn't big but it will keep young kids entertained. Lots of restaurants within a very short walking distance and the hotel offers a discount on several of them when you show your room key. Housekeeping is very courteous and we weren't bothered early in the morning. The hot breakfast is decent and fresh with lots of options for picky eaters. The accommodations had been updated somewhat recently: marble countertops, fridge, microwave, but if I had to offer criticism I would ask for a mattress topper, and the laundry room was unavailable. The mattress was perfectly comfortable for a few nights but I'm sure it gets a lot of traffic and did have some wear. Reception was very courteous and wi-fi worked great. I stayed here in December and decided to stay here again based on my previous experience and overall value of the hotel.

We stayed here on July 4 in a pet-friendly room. It is an extra $20 for a dog, and you cannot book those rooms online which was annoying, but the gentleman on the phone was easy to work with. I couldn't tell the room was a pet-friendly room; it was really clean and there was no evidence of pets The front desk staff was friendly and helpful and the room was updated and comfortable. It did not have interior corridors which I don't mind, but my family prefers. The pool is much smaller than what it looked like in the picture. There are lots of places in walking distance to eat. My daughter and husband loved the biscuits at the breakfast...my husband said they had really good biscuits and gravy. We paid about $100 with the dog fee and taxes added in, and I thought that was reasonable for what we got.

The hotel is conveniently located just off the interstate, and within easy walking distance of several restaurants. It offers parking outside one’s room for those on the ground floor, which makes unloading and loading much easier. From the layout, it is evident that it is an older facility. But it has been periodically renovated and well maintained. Our room was large, with nice furniture including a sofa and coffee table as well as a desk and desk chair. The bathroom counter was reasonably sized.

It is an older hotel, clean, friendly & helpful staff, but ask Lynn for the combination to the door lock - takes more than the key you get! I didn't have the breakfast although it is served between 6-9am. I was here on business, worked all night, and slept through breakfast. Location is convenient to I-65 and to the main road going downtown Athens. You are near Huntsville. Good dining is close in either direction from the hotel.
