Best Western Plus Bessemer Hotel & Suites

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 10, 2012

I read all the wonderful reviews about this hotel before booking but I was still a bit worried I would arrive and be disappointed. Let me just say... believe all the great reviews you read here! I was impressed as soon as I walked in the lobby - the hotel is lovely and the staff is friendly and helpful. The room was much more spacious that I expected - the area for the refrigerator and coffee maker really opens up the room to make it feel less like a hotel room. The lobby and room were clean and well-kept, and the beds were very comfortable. The television had a nice picture, and connection to wireless in the room was seamless. The only trouble we had was really just a minor inconvenience... we had a little trouble with the bathroom floor getting wet because it was a little difficult to get the shower curtain in the correct position. Again - only a very minor inconvenience! Sometimes when I travel, I worry about the safety of the area I stay in because I travel with a small child. The surrounding areas were very nice, safe, and there are several options for restaurants and gas stations. We will definitely come back to visit when we are in the area again. Thank you for a great place to stay!!!

Room was little smelly at first but disappeared after a/c was turned on. Staff was great, very friendly upon check-in and during the stay. Breakfast was very good and it had lots of choices. Would stay there again.

From the time I walked in to the hotel i was impressed. The lobby was pretty! The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. They paitently helped sort through rooms for my group of 16. The rooms were big, and spacious. Each room had an iron, ironing board, microwave, and fridge (but no freezer). The beds were AMAZING, and so were the pillows. The rooms were clean for the most part, the tub in the bathroom was dusty. The breakfast food was good, but the juice was watered down, and had a weird taste, and the coffee was a bit weak. The exercise room was very small, it had a treadmill, stationary bike, elliptical, and weight machine (which didn't even have all the attachements). I definitely reccomend this hotel!

Room Tip: TIP: If you eat at applebees you get 10% off your bill for staying at the best western.

Super comfy beds! The hotel was recently renovated, so everything was really nice. The breakfast was a little meager, but if you dot mind a light breakfast, it was sufficient. I would definitely stay again.

This was a very nice location. It was our second stay & their breakfasts are delicious. The staff is very accommodating. We were reserved for 3 nights & had car trouble. They were able to extend our stay even though it was a busy travel time for them.
We had suite accommodations the first time - which was very spacious. Two bed the second & both were clean & modern. Both pool & hot tub functional. Some safety issues need to be addressed on pool ladder. Staff was friendly & attentive.
