The Best Western in Escanaba has been around for a while, and some of this shows in the rooms, the restaurant, bar, and general decor. But then again, some of us have been around for awhile, and we also show signs of wear...
We have stayed there multiple times over the last couple decades, because of family functions, weddings, etc, where we could book a hotel with a large block of rooms, and there was an onsite restaurant where this old group of yoopers could congregate for breakfast, dinner, etc, etc...
Price wise, it is about par with some of the other chain hotels in town.
The rooms are not bad, but also not great, and are in need of some updating.
It is nice that there is a bar located in the basement/lower level, and there is a modest restaurant onsite, along with a modest sized pool.
The bar, along with the restaurant, is medium fare, nothing terrible, but also nothing to write home about.
It is right off a major highway, US 2, and very close to the downtown area.
As with most of the hotels in Escanaba, make sure you ask the front desk for a free casino package, if you were thinking of visiting the local casino. Visit the service desk on the East side of the casino to pick up your freebies.
The package changes sometimes, but as of now, we remember that each adult in the room gets a $5 credit for slot machine play, a $5 credit off any meal, and a free drink ticket, for anything you want, coffee, smoothie, or Crown on the rocks. There is also a free, yes, I said free, shuttle bus that will take you to the casino, and bring you back. This shuttle does not run all nite.
Good luck, great parks to visit in Escanaba and Gladstone, right on Lake Michigan, have a good one...remember...it is a pasty...not a pastie....one you eat, and one is something related to a form of dancing......if you can figure this out, you are on the path to becoming a yooper.....
