“A wonderful surprise!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

I'm impressed. For a hotel in a small town like Starke, FL, it was lovely, and very well kept. The same owner has had the hotel since 1976, and clearly, within the past year or so, did some sweeping improvements. You can tell a lot about a room by checking the base of the walls and the ceilings. Often its easy to spot cosmetic touchups. NOT HERE. New baseboards, no sign of cosmetic touchups, shiny, clean textured walls, along with granite countertops and shower walls, new plumbing through out. The breakfast area was small, but its layout made everything convenient. They offered hot waffles, fruit, yogurt, juices, pastry, 4 cereals, two types of milk, and it was extremely clean and thoughtfully arranged. BUT THE BEST PART was MARIA!! She was the front desk manager during the day. When we pulled up she was outside helping with landscaping, and came right in, checked us in with a smile and offered dinner suggestions. It was evident that wanted to provide superior assistance, and she did. I should also note that I was there for my primary profession - which is government. But I am also a part time travel agent (they didn't know this). I would stay here again. Very very impressed

The Best Western in Starke, fl was a wonderful stay Ms. Maria at the front desk was outstanding. Having to check in 25 of us all in one lobby was more then I could of handle, but she was so cool and had a great smile, she did inpform us of the promotion that Best Western was run for the summer and convince us to sign up for it, she was truly professional in her job duties and made sure that we were all happy with the accommadtions. At breakfast time being that we had to be at our distination they made sure the open a little earlyer for us to have some of their great coffee and a bite to eat too. All the ladies that we encounter with were so kind. We will be back next year this is our spot in Starke. Everything was a mission accomplished. Thank you all!

Room Tip: rooms we had on the south side of building very nice and remodeled

Now this was a very nice place to stay for the evening - we were road tired having traveled for 10 hours and just wanted a nice clean place to stay the night. Had a wonderful room, spacious and very clean, well maintained, and a wonderful flat screen TV that was adjustable for watching in ether bed. Good, fast internet connection, nice simple breakfast in the morning and some really fine coffee too! The room rate was very reasonable for what was provided and again very clean. Fridge & Microwave as well as a coffee maker in the room, no elevator but the stairs were easy to maneuver a suitcase up. Very quiet considering it was right on the 301 downtown with easy access to restaurants and fast food places.

If you are traveling, this is a great place to stop for the night. The rooms are immaculate. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful. Wifi works. Close to places for dinner. Free breakfast. Plus, the price was right. It was as good as any budget/low moderately priced hotel I've happened into on a road trip.

We drove a little further than we had planned because we knew this Best Western was in Starke, Florida. Very reasonable rates were a welcome sight for our pocketbook as prices in South Florida are exorbitatant. Not surprisingly, we were taken care of at check in by Terri. She explained everything perfectly and even found me an opportunity to collect more reward points that I was not aware of.

Room Tip: Call ahead 1-800-780-7234 as this is a busy North/South Highway leading into Florida.
