Friday night arrival underwhelming. When booking room I was told a room rate that didn't match what receiving on arrival. Was told the phone rate was for 2 adults and we had 3. Later when my wife went to pool there were no towels. She went to front desk to get towels and the clerk actually asked her if she could bring extra towels to the pool.

Saturday breakfast was excellent. Service was great and everyone was helpful. There were 2 waffle makers which helped keep things moving along. Excellent breakfast selection.

Dear Andy S.,
I am very sorry about the delay at check-in, most guest who book through 3rd party reservation sites are not aware of our policy. I am very sorry for this issue and I can ensure you an easier and quicker check-in when booking straight through our hotel. As for the receptionist who failed to provide you with superior customer care, I can ensure you they are trained well to better handle this type of situation. I am very sorry this happened. However, I am very pleased to hear you liked our breakfast. The waffles are a favorite for our breakfast in the morning. We are so happy you liked this addition to this area. We are starting to change our flavors for the batter as well. Please feel welcome to come back to try our new flavors and see us again. Thank you for reviewing our hotel. Have a safe summer.

Absolutely great location. 30 seconds off the highway and a friendly staff made the stay even that more pleasurable. The room was very clean. no flaws in the bathroom and the cable service was great to watch the World Cup. Did I mention it has an in room Keurig for the other coffee snobs out there! The bed was a comfy somewhat pillow top. Amenities included a pool laundry and a few treadmills. All around great stay!

My review was written for hotel but in short do not count on breakfast as not available or just not good. Eggs were like powder or prepared frozen eggs. Food ran out long before it was suppose to. Staff cleaned real well but air was extremely noisy and ironing board was broke causing other issues.

We stayed here one night, but wished we could stay longer. The bed was so comfortable and our room was very quiet. The breakfast was wonderful. The staff were all very helpful. We would recommend this Best Western.
