I had the pleasure of staying at the Best Western Vista Inn during a recent month-long business stay in Buena Vista and couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. With all the extras over a standard hotel/motel room, it's hard to believe that Orbitz rates it at only 2-stars - I would rate it at 3 to 4-stars myself. Obviously, without things like room service or an attached restaurant it can't reach the level of quality of a big city high-rise hotel, but for a small town, it is a first-rate place to stay.
The beds were very comfortable and had nice linens. Any problems that arose were taken care of immediately. Nice to have features included an indoor pool, fitness room and FREE, fast wi-fi. I enjoyed their large selection for breakfast, including fruit, yogurt, pastries, cereals, waffles, coffee & juices, hard boiled eggs, etc. I wish they would have had plain glazed or powered donuts also, but was pleased that they opened their breakfast room for us at 4am rather than the usual 6am. As our company was occupying 20 rooms at the time, I'm sure they were more than happy to do this.
The hotel was switching out their old TV sets with new HDTVs, but they just had standard cable service at the time - no HD channels yet. Hopefully they will have HD channels available in the future.
Unfortunately, the local company that did their laundry service was closing down, but the front desk quickly found a very reasonably priced alternative (The Missing Sock) where guest could drop off their laundry.
All-in-all, I was very pleased with my stay at the Vista Inn.
