“A good place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

I enjoyed my stay at this motel and will stay here again. The rooms are comfortable and the staff will go the extra mile to attend to your needs. The surroundings are pleasant and the complimentary breakfast was good.

We usually enjoy the comfort and quality of Best Western hotels. This one, however, is a hotel we would avoid. It had an unpleasant odor, the gardens need tending to, and I had the feeling it wasn't really clean--may just be perception due to odors.

There was a cockroach in our peanuts the beds were not real comfortable, and the bathtub leaked. We stay here every year for wrestling tournaments in the area. It's more out of convenience than anything else. It's not the best part of town but it's close to restaurants, entertainment, and our events.

Will not stay here again. It is in a bad part of town. My two daughters were there too and they had an intruder at 3:00am. We believe it was the hotel security guard. He said he needed to check their remote in their room when they checked in. Very suspicious. The police were called and said they get lots of calls about this motel. Will not stay there again.

This hotel is ok, not as clean as some as the Best Westerns I've stayed in before. It is also not in a neighborhood that has many good dining options. The staff was nice and accommodating, unfortunately there was just not that much the neighborhood could offer and the rooms were not clean. I switched rooms because my downstairs room was clearly going to be to able to sleep. The upstairs neighbors were walking around a lot and the floors creaked. In both rooms, the bathtubs were leaky. We are in the middle of a horrible drought and the tubs were leaking. There were brown water stains all over the tub in the 2nd room. It was not what I expected from a Best Western.

We were pleasantly surprised with our stay at the B.S. Crystal Palace Inn. The room and bathroom facilities were clean and comfortable. The best part was breakfast the next morning. We were able to select from a menu and choose a hot cooked breakfast which was delicious.

All things considered, I would not stay there again unless they instal a microwave. For that amount of money I expect it - and have had one in much less expensive rooms.
The 200 word policy makes me sorry I started this
