Very clean and comfortable.I was able to use the exercise room. The breakfast is always good. Shirley, our breakfast attendant was sweet and helpful. Very convenient to our relatives who own a great ice cream shop in Englewood on 776 called A Better Scoop. Everyone should check it out when visiting the area.

Very service minded staff in this standard interstate hotell. Very service minded front desk, had a lot of tips to what to doo in the area, helped us out with laundry and were great with the kids. Rooms well kept, and CLEAN. Small swimmingpool, but very inviting. Standard HIE breakfast, but well stocked and fresh. When checking outr we were given a "pleas rewiew us on tripadvisor" card, a nice touch!

Very clean room and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful! From the evening we checked in, the desk clerk was so sweet and accomodatng! Breakfast was always good and a great start to our day! Lisa and Rachel took care of us in the dining room and were very warm and courteous.....we felt like we were hanging out at a friends house! Housekeeping kept our room very comfortable and always had a smile and friendly greeting when we made our way out of the hotel in the morning! Great experience and would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing and friendly stay away from home! FYI...my husband and I stay in Holiday Inn Express all over the country!

Room Tip: Everything we needed!

Great team of people at the hotel. Everyone was very helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. Shirley in the breakfast area was great with directions and very pleasant. Will go back again. Our room was very quiet which is unusual in a hotel. And the room rate was very good
JR

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor on the end and it was very quiet.

The hotel staff is always friendly and accomodating to their guests. I have stayed here many times and pleased with the staff, room cleanliness, and overall experience. Special acknowledgement to the breakfast "hostesses". I have seen these ladies (Lisa D) accomodate entire track and field teams for breakfast in fine fashion and still take care of the seperate travelers. Great hotel!

For starters, the fridge did not work. Not a big deal, but they gave us a hot bottled water as a welcome gift, and we had no way to cool it. The air had no temp settings, just high and low. The high setting did not cool the room down to a comfortable setting. The noise in the hallways was VERY loud. Someone had a dog in the hallway, and we got to enjoy the barking :( The wifi did not work at all, and we had business to tend to on the internet. We moved rooms, to be on an outside wall and was able to get the hotel next doors signals for wifi and could use the net freely. Thank you so much Best Western...you rock! Breakfast in the morning...not even worth typing! Never again for us. I'd rather pay 15-20 more and get a nice room for the evening.
