Best Western Courtesy Inn

Reviewed March 8, 2014

John was really helpful during my check-in. He gave me a better discount then what I got from Southwest. The room was huge, looked clean and smelled fresh. The bed was huge and very comfortable and so were the pillows. There were some shady characters outside, but I was there for two days and just was in and out of my room. Overall, I had a great experience and would stay here again.

My family and I were completely dissatisfied with our stay this hotel and will not stay here again nor will we recommend it. The room itself stunk with the smell of cigarettes, so bad that it gave me a headache upon entering it. The blankets on the bed had cigarette burns on them and were poorly patched. There were permanent residents living in the hotel rooms and loitering outside in a threating and unwelcoming manner. The hotel staff was rude when I brought up my concerns and did nothing to put me at ease. The continental breakfast was nothing like it described on the website. The eggs, were hard boiled eggs sitting in a fridge and the toaster did not work properly.

Shouldn't be a Best Western. Stayed on 2nd floor, some kids must have been left alone above usbecause at midnight they were jumping, running and generally creating havoc. Parents came back about 45 minutes later and they settled down somewhat but still lots of loud voices. I should have called the front but my husband slept through it and I didn't want to wake him up as well.. The continental breakfast was in a wee room behind the office. A "resident" of the motel came in while we were having toast and filled her hoody and pockets with anything and everything. She came a 2nd time and grabbed 5 milks and more pizza pockets. Having longterm renters kinda brings it down. Sketchy neighorhood. They have reno'd and it's as nice as they can make it but an old building. Lots of noise from complex behind. Gentleman who came on at 7am was very helpful and nice. Older lady who checked us in was also nice but appeared suspicious of us?, might have been her way?
Wouldn't stay in this place again. If not for the neighbours above us and the odd woman who clearly was pilfering from the breakfast area it have been OK.
