Best Western Chester Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Chester
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 25, 2013

This is an older property, but it is well-maintained and has all that one needs. There is a guest laundry, a very nice breakfast, and wifi. The room was very clean and the staff took care of all my requests - including purchasing postage stamps. In a small, industrial town like Chester, when this property is the only real game in town, it would be easy to let standards slip. This property, however, is kept up as if it had stiff competition across the street. This property was a real surprise.

Standard BW continental breakfast with hot biscuits and scrambled eggs. Beds are very comfortable. Hotel is a 2 story walkup with an atrium over the lobby. Friendly staff. 10% discount at Reids' Harvest House Restaurant which was filled with locals and is located 1/2 mile down the road. Only issue was a noisy heating system (fan) but ear plugs took care of that. They have an excercise room whose bycicle was vandalised. There is a picnic area out back with barbecue pits and a shelter which could be nice in the summer for a family.

This is an above average Best Western based on our experience.

Room Tip: Minimal traffic on Sunday so noise was not an issue except for the electric wall heating: fan was no...

Stayed here for work... Very clean hotel with wonderfull staff. Would stay here again. Room is clean, bed is comfortable! There is not much in town, however The Eagles is a great place for Steak. Another option is Tequilas for good mexican food. I can't say enough good things about this hotel in a small town.

We stayed here 10/18/12. Upon check in the staff was welcoming. Everything was explained from the availability of wifi to the discount on dinner at the restaurant down the road. The room was clean and spacious. Everything worked just as expected. The location was beautiful. We had a room on the first floor facing the main road which was busy but we never heard the traffic. The continental breakfast was very filling. We both came away very content. We travel a couple times a year and would definately return to this Inn. Checkout went very smooth and we were on our way to finish our trip rested feeling as if we had just left home. Make reservations which helps when checking in. There is no elevator but it is only a two story building. There is vending machines for drinks/snacks very reasonablly priced. Next trip south we will see them again.

Room Tip: If you have special needs specify them when reserving room. If you need to keep medicines cold durin...

I've stayed here several times over the last three years. Every time I've stayed there, it's been amazing. The rooms are always clean, the beds are super-comfortable, and the showers always have great pressure (I love the massage setting). Free wi-fi and a continental breakfast is a huge plus for me. We always stay in town for two nights, so the breakfast keeps us from having to purchase three meals a day. Every stay, something is updated. They now have a waffle maker added to the breakfast, and a flatscreen tv in the rooms. The staff have always been super-courteous and very helpful. They've never not known the answer to any question. The a/c has always been in perfect working order, though we've never used the heat. The pool is always bright blue and clear. There are woods, a shelter, and barbecue pits behind the hotel. The view from the upstairs rooms is really pretty. There are several restaurants that are nearby, even the Reids Harvest House which has homestyle cooking in a buffet style. The hotel stay gives you a 10% discount there. This hotel has spoiled us. I now compare every hotel to this one, and seem to be let down. I highly suggest this hotel if you're going to be anywhere near here.

Room Tip: The second floor has a great view of the wooded areas surrounding the hotel.

e hotel is some 3 miles east of the town. On a large site with outside barbaque and pool ( not heated ) and sitting area. Rooms are modern and spacious with large flat tv. Breakfast is standard continental and breakfast down the road may be preferable. Fast food close but standard restaurant down the road. Reasonable rates for a one night stay
