Stayed at 8 hotels during trip to California & this was the poorest. Arrived to find nobody at front desk - little printed sign saying 'back in 3 minutes' which we saw many times during our one night stay! Three minutes would have been fine but it was far longer than this. And we were desperate for loo and couldn't find one near reception! Had plenty of time to pity the poor fish in the grim, stark fish pool -a 'feature' in reception. Our room was large and clean but uninspired.We faced the road which was ok with the windows shut but it was far too noisy to open them. We didn't notice the lack of AC till we went to bed and sweltered. This was made worse by the polyester sheets. Basically, we slept very badly. Breakfast was dire - no space to eat (in receptipon) and poor selection of food. Looked at the minute pool beside the main road and couldn't understand why anyone would use it. On check-out (another 'back in three minutes scenario') we mentioned the heat in the room and were told that nobody else had complained. At that point, another lady said 'We couldn't sleep either because of the heat'. So, I guess we were not alone. It's not an awful hotel but there must be better options in the area. It was our first Best Western experinece and will probably be our last.
