“Only place in town to stay”
Reviewed July 14, 2009

One word describes the place. TERRIBLE! We stayed for two nights. On day 2 we were out all day and when we returned to the room we found that our beds wer not made. All the maid did was to throw the top sheet, blankets and spread over the bed. On one bed the blanket over hung onto the floor by about a foot. The floors were not vacuumed and no new soap was left in the bathroom. Then on the morning of checkout we went to get our comp. breakfast. Again, only one word can describe our dining experience, TERRIBLE. Powder eggs were awful tasting. I got a cup of coffee and the cream was frozen. I went to tell the front desk of my experience and the clerk stood there with a blank look and said let me know if there is anything we can do for you. Well how about having someone remake our bed? I have stayed at a lot of hotels over the last 30years and NEVER have I come into my room to find the sheet, blanket and spread thrown over the bed.

At Best Western Timber Creek we take pride in our housekeeping scores and we feel there is absolutely no excuse for poor housekeeping service. Unfortunately we had a relatively new housekeeping staff during this stay and they were not taking proper care of guests who were staying multiple days. We have corrected this problem. Breakfast is a personal choice. Our free breakfast includes the normal continental breakfast items along with real scrambled eggs, sausage and make your own waffles.

The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is new and we were expecting a few gliches. We were pleasantly disappointed! The rooms were in mint condition and the bar and grill were great. The only negative was that they were still in the process of landscaping so some of the grounds were not as beautiful as the interior.
