“Iffy at First”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014 via mobile

When I first checked in, the person at the front desk was pretty snippy and unfriendly. Thankfully though, service improved later on and staff were helpful.

The rooms are totally basic and on the small side. Bring your own cleaning products if random mystery morsels and stains bother you: this place is well used.

FWY access is easy, but traffic is loud. Believe the reviews that recommend the courtyard rooms.

Stayed June 2014, traveled on business

I stayed at the Best Western in Porterville for 4 nights and we enjoyed the pool and the staff was very friendly, responded to our requests for extra towels and blankets with no hesitation. The only problem we had was someone's children pounding on doors one Friday night and running away. The staff started monitoring the halls and the banging ceased.

Nothing special but a perfectly fine place to spend the night. Spent just one night on my way to someplace else. Left before breakfast was served, so can't comment on that. Out on the edge of town, so had to drive to other activities.

Hotel was clean and beds were comfortable. Was in town to attend cousins wedding. Not impressed with the breakfast options at the hotel. But there is a Denny's that delivers, next time we will order from there.

I have clients in the area and always stay here. It's a nice, comfortable place to stay, the staff is always courteous and helpful, and the breakfast is ok. Tends to be noisier on weekends when there are lots of families staying there but during the week, it is quiet and relaxing. I like staying there. The only negative is the plastic mattress liner makes sleeping uncomfortable. You sweat on the bottom where your body is against the mattress and freeze (if you turn the AC down to 69) on the top. If there was more padding, this wouldn't be as bad.

Clean rooms, friendly staff and a nice complimentary breakfast with eggs, sausage and waffles. The only blemish was a kind of dirty pool area. From the day before there were cigarette butts laying on the ground and in styrofoam cups, empty cans on the tables, sticky filthy tables, and leaves and other stuff in the pool. I specifically asked to have the jacuzzi area cleaned (I policed the pool area myself) and was told maintenance would clean it but five hours later they still had done nothing.

It was a hundred degree weekend and it would have been great to have a sparkling clean pool and jacuzzi area.

It's a place to shower and sleep, Their is a Denny's 50 feet away and a Burger King about 500 feet away. Lowe's and Home Depot right accross the street. Along with more places to eat. Some what close enough to walk if you had to. Casino 30 minutes up the road.
