The pool was freezing. The hot tub was broken. Roof leaked above pool due to the rains. There was a party going on that the staff would not control so we did not get any sleep. Would not stay here ever again.

Stayed for 2 nights here, for a wedding. Rooms were on par with a super 8 and were clean but furnishings old and getting worn. Pool area in center is LOUD at night until it closes (pool closes 10 weeknights and 11 weekends). And, smoking is fine in pool area so for nonsmokers, it's not enjoyable to be in a big smoky area. Lobby by check-in desk has fireplace that's warm and inviting. Buford's restaurant offers free breakfast for guests which was very good and plenty of choices. At night their drinks are fine and low cost.

  • Liked — Free breakfast in morning
  • Disliked — Smoking allowed in pool area - huge indoor area in center of hotel.

We stayed at the Best Western as it was the only one with a vacancy duing Fort Dodge Days. This is probably due to its being at the edge of town. There was a wedding reception in progress and there was at least one little league team staying there. There were lots of kids in the pool (just like another reviewer noted) but the noise really died down after 11:00, the pool closing time. The room was OK and the bed was comfortable. The shower/bath area was VERY tiny. Breakfast left something to be desired, probably due to the high occupancy. The sweet rolls were all gone (replaced with a loaf of bread) and the staff was kept busy refilling the eggs and sausages. No hot water for hot chocolate or oatmeal or tea. Our room was a smoking room, but there was no ashtray. Upon going to the desk to request one, the clerk commented that they "don't put ashtrays in rooms any more" as she handed one to me.

Had a few problems. Requested a smoking room. No ashtrays. Had to wait until front desk personnel was free as housekeeping never answered their phone. Requested two extra pillows. Brought pillows 30 minutes later. We had to put on our own pillow cases. No towels at pool. Complimentary breakfast is only from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Not quite enought time to sleep in and eat. Should at least extend it one hour. For $100.00 per night with tax, service could have been a little better.

The Best Western Starlite Village is a friendly, comfortable hotel. We had two adjacent rooms, which was convenient for us.

Our rooms on the second floor were just fine, equipped with cable tv.
The breakfast was a highlight, including not only the usual pastries, juice, and coffee, but also a self-serve waffle-baker and hot items like eggs and sausage.

The first night of our stay, a large wedding took place, but we weren't disturbed by all of the activity. The pool was filled with kids that evening, but we never had the opportunity to use it. Our second night was a Sunday. The place was really quiet, and the restaurant/lounge was closed.
