I find Best Westerns, overall, reliable. That is true with this particular BW. I oftentimes book online, but this time I decided to phone in my reservation. This BW allows smoking and I wanted to know the particulars on that. I prefer not to breathe in second-hand smoke and my six-year old is considered "Pre-Asthmatic." The gal I spoke with offered to put us in a room at the most remote location. I decided to give it a try. I am hyper-sensitive to smoke and didn't detect a trace indoors.
This was a surprise trip for my son during Spring break. The priority was a pool. This particular BW has very generous pool hours; 9am-10pm. That is good to know for families who really "need" that energy burner. The pool was heated and a decent size. There was also a hot tub.
The room was clean and provided the amenities I wanted. I confess, however, the room coffee was the absolute WORST I have ever had. Our mattress was a bit uncomfortable, but not unbearably so for us.
Breakfast at this BW was all right. Coffee, (better than the room, but barely) juice, yogurt, old-ish fruit, assorted breads, scrambled eggs, sausages (scrapple one day) and as another stated, very good freshly made waffles. The attendant at the breakfast area was extremely pleasant. I also noticed another gentleman who seemed to be an all-around worker. I noticed this gentleman take care of the pool, sweep floors and fix holes in the wall. I admire and like seeing this kind of attention to one's job. It shows pride and it made me feel like I was in an establishment where the staff truly cared about "their" hotel.
Upon check-out we were referred to the Herr's Factory for a tour. Check it out if you find yourself in the area.
