“Delivered All I expected”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Accommodations were clean and serviceable - which is what I expected (I was expecting a good value - not luxury). The service was without fault. Although we didn't use it, the motel also has a pleasant pool. The location is also a plus, as it is central. Breakfast is not memorable, but there are other options within a short walk if you prefer. Have stayed here several times and will continue to do so.

The only thing we would compain about is their attitude towards breakfast. They ran out of coffee and when I reported it the woman said she just refilled it and she seemed annoyed to be interrupted. I think she was on her way for something else. The breakfast area is limited considering the number of rooms available. You need your room key to access the area. The facility is adjacent to the McHenry Mansion.

We were on our way back to San Franciscio and pin in the map caused us to stay in Modesto.

Not an immediately attractive area or town but it was a convenient stopping point.

We found this hotel using Tripadviser.

The hotel or motel was exactly what we expected. Tripadviser directions got us to the motel easily. The check in lady was helpful and we chose a ground floor room. The room was clean and comfortable, had all the facilities such as refrigerator and microwave and airconditioning that we didn't use so we can't comment on how noisey it may be (it was April and not too hot at night).

The bed was comfortable and we had a good night. We did get some noise early in the morning from some elephants who had the room above us and the bins being emptied.

The breakfast didn't have as much choice as other BWs we stayed at but was OK and set us off for the day.

Its location was excellent for us as we like to be able to walk to somewhere to have dinner and this motel was about 3 minutes walk from Dewz, a great restaurant, and there were other eating options close by.

No complaints.

Room Tip: If you have much luggage remember there is no elevator to the upper floor rooms. In the ground floo...

this is an old-fashioned type of drive-up motel. Rooms are either on the first or second floor. No elevator. The a/c in the rooms is the old-fashioned type situated under the window. I found it very loud. All rooms face the walkway so even if we had been on the second fllor, we couldn't have left our window open. The size of the room was fine but we only had a shower, no tub. Our room also had a microwave, refrigerator,and coffee maker which all worked well. breakfast included waffles, eggs, sausage, juice, cereal, etc. and it was well-stocked. I feel that a three is too low a rating but a four is too high. A 3 1/2 were have been better!

We chose to stay primarily at BW on this trip south which we made with another couple. This one was not the easiest to find & without our GPS not sure we would have found it. It is in the downtown core of Modesto. We were greeted by Nancy who was very pleasant & helpful. Parking spot for each vehicle but these really were pretty tight especially for our larger size p/u. This was a two story outside entrance motel (rather than hotel). We were on bottom floor & both we and our friends, could hear people walking quite loudly in their units above our rooms. There was a complimentary hot breakfast which was ok, but the food was very slow in being restocked & they were low on some items when we got there around 8 AM so we didn't have a big choice & fresh eggs etc. didn't come out until we had finished what was available. We had a decent sleep tho' and beds were comfortable. We arrived later in the afternoon around 4 or later & our units had just been cleaned but not very thoroughly. Our shower had not been cleaned and there was a used facecloth & soap still on the the shower tray. I guess we should have reported it but didn't notice it until the next morning when we went to take a shower. I just left them on back of toilet with a large note. I don't think that we would choose to stay at this BW again in the future

Room Tip: Take a room on the top floor as we could hear the people above our room clomping around (probably ju...

On behalf of the entire team here at Best Western, we would like to apologize for not exceeding your expectations during your stay.

I agree, the location of our hotel can be a bit difficult to find due to some of the downtown streets being one-way. Plus, our highways can get a bit hectic. And unfortunately, the small parking spaces are something we have had to deal with since the property was first built.

In the past month we have hired several new employees. Some are new breakfast attendants, and some are new to the housekeeping department. Since your response here at Trip Advisor, we have taken immediate action by speaking with each employee, and reminding them of the Best Western guidelines that must be followed in every department.

Barbes, your business is very important to us and we value your feedback. By telling us how we can improve, you are helping us deliver a superior experience for you and other guests in the future. We hope you will come back and see us again soon.

Service was great, one bedside lamp did not work, called the front desk and it was replaced in a few minutes. Room was nice and clean. Quite a few restaurants close by and not too far from center of town. Would definitely stay here if we travel this way again.
