Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

Nice and accommodating. I like that the lobby has a small lounge area to relax and a large place to eat. It's has a welcoming feel about it. The rooms are outfitted nicely and they have microwaves which is a great perk if you want to heat up last nights dinner. Check in and check out were fast and efficient.

Rooms were very nice, but the maid service was awful. They made the bed and replaced the towels, but that was all for 4 days. Had to go to te desk to get toilet paper. Shower curtain smelled of mildew. They could use more H/C parking too.

We also stayed at this hotel as part of a large group. The price was very reasonable, and the rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. The staff was friendly and very accomodating especially when we used their meeting room for a "quick" team party. The free conitinental breakfast was decent, although the selection was somewhat limited. But again, it was free and did the job. The view out of our window looked out over an RV and boat storage facility, so I kept looking for Walter White to jump out of an RV (insert Breaking Bad reference here). Not a big deal at all, it is what it is. But all in all, it was a pleasant stay at a nice hotel, and I would not hestitate to stay there again.

We went as part of a large group. They were very accommodating and had a nice conference room to gather in. Clean, convenient and comfortable. Pool area was nicer than other hotels we've been to lately; nicer and bigger pool and deck area.

We stayed here one night on our way to DC. Check in was quick and staff was friendly. $15 pet fee which isn't too bad. Right off the highway with plenty of restaurants in the area. Room was clean. Breakfast was complimentary but was very limited in selection and food and coffee was bad. We ended up getting breakfast elsewhere.

We went here for the Firefly Music Festival.
The staff was very friendly and inclined to help guests. We appreciated the very clean and quiet room. Good position close to restaurants and the highway to Dover. Hope to come back. Sure!

My friend and I arrived after midnight to the hotel. I had a horrible time sleeping because the ac was blowing hot air and the bed was so uncomfortable. I was woken up by my friend who was frantic because she was getting bitten. We turned on the lights and saw bed bugs crawling around the sheets. We packed up all our belonging in plastic trash bags because we were worried about bringing the bedbugs home. I complained to the hotel manager and his response was that the hotel was just renovated, what the heck does that have to do with bugs????!!! He took ten dollars of the room fee. What a disgrace! I will never stay in a Best Western again. As far as the renovations the manger spoke off, both the bedspreads had gross stains, the sheets were old and thin and the little chair near the bed was filled with stains. GROSS!!!!! Obviously room 111 was not renovated! I was really mad because I wanted to check out the pool and have the free breakfast that was included in the price but ended up running out off the place so fast because I was so freaked out!!!!

Hi Kathy:

I would like to apologize for the unfortunate experience you had here at the Best Western Plus. Upon your departure in the morning, we did have the room inspected by our professional pest control company and he did not find any issues with the room. We also had our maintenance person check the air conditioner in the room and he did not find a problem with it. We have since deep cleaned the room and it has been occupied since with no complaints. Best Western Plus does take any complaint serious and we do everything possible to make our guests have an enjoyable experience.
