“Good Place to Stay for the Price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

I stayed at the Best Western for an extended amount of time because of house fire. My experience was good. They had breakfast which consists of 4 types of cereals, waffles, hard boiled eggs, different types of muffins, fruits, orange juice, apple juice, milk, and many more items. The room was clean, and the housekeepers were considerate. The office staff were awesome to, but one person he worked graveyard shift. So, I did not see him much, so that was great. The hotel had plenty of parking and it was close to town for convenience: 7- 11, Italian food, donut shop, liquor store, Wal-Mart, and much more. The room had internet and plenty of T.V. channels. The pool was decent, but the spas heat was not that great. I would have to ask the office staff to turn up the heat. All in all I would rate this place as a four star.

Room Tip: Try not to stay next to the pool. The pools gate slams quite frequently and loud.

The breakfast that has been offered for years at this motel was cut to almost nothing even though it has been an advertised feature. There was even milk for the limited selection of cereal. It has always been nice to wake up to a decent breakfast before heading into town. When asked why the front counter folks couldn't offer any explanation other than why don't know or we're waking for it to get here.

The grounds were nice, and the room was clean. The staff was friendly and efficient. It was pet friendly and sold out, yet still pretty quiet and enough parking. The complimentary internet worked great. There was a very short walk to convince stores, a 7-11, Walgreens, liquor store, donut shop, etc.

Family of four stayed the weekend for a softball tournament that was played at Lakeside Park. The rooms was very nice and a lot nicer than I had anticipated. With both kids in travel softball we stay in a lot of cheap hotels lol this one was actually good quality and the girls stuffed themselves on the breakfast!! The only downside was the lack of parking.

Older hotel but well maintained and clean. Allows pets. Good location near Trolly Square. I really like the bed linen. The staff went out of their way once when I left my IPAD. I have stayed here several times over the past two years. I would recommend this hotel to a friend.

We had an awesome stay here, great price and TEA, was fabulous!!!!! we arrived from Vegas early to see my daughter in alpine and she let us check in at that time we were very grateful as my mom is 77 yrs old and was very tired, she was very friendly and accommodating, our room was great, we had a fridge and microwave. We used to stay in alpine but will return here. Thanks Tea for treating us with great customer service!!!!!!

Room Tip: just ask Tea from the front desk.

Unclean, noisey, staff does not favor English as a primary language. Because I was in town for a family gathering that was emotional I had no time to search for another hotel. There were police cars several times per night and hated the unclean room.
