“Great service, good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

Staff friendly & helpful. Rooms okay to very good, depending on hotel. We need mobility accessibility (for my wife). First room was spacious, w/ microwave & frig, & lobby decor was unique & provided a fun space to be in. Also located very conveniently for us. Second room was a bit cramped, bed small, & lacked microwave & frig. It could be that on that second stay we got the only remaining accessible room, which we did accept. Staff attitude & service second to none. Good value overall.

The Best Western in Bemidji was very clean and accommodating. Breakfast was ample and overall, a very good stay. Although we were trying to stay on a little cheaper budget, Monica, who checked us in, was very friendly and worked with us to give us a decent rate.

A nice little surprise along the way. Hotel wasn't fancy on outside but inside it was fine. Best bed of our 28 day journey and 18 of those with B.W. Breakfast was good and staff helpful sharing advise where to walk and were to go for dinner meal.

Friendly staff on reception. Only stairs to the second floor rooms so be prepared if you have heavy luggage or if you struggle with steps. The room was clean and comfortable with a king size bed. Surprised to find that shower gel isn't provided - only soap. Breakfast was adequate but nothing special. The hotel is in the outskirts of town.

Thank you for posting your review. We are glad you felt warmly greeted upon your arrival. We are making big changes to our breakfast (and lobby) which will be completed shortly after the first of the year, and I am certain it will impress you!! I would also like to point out that our hotel is positioned with easy access to all areas of Bemidji so it truly makes travel convenient all around town. Come back again soon!!

What an awesome experience from beginning to end! We are motorcycle travelers that usually camp, however, rain and a drop in temps prompted us to take a hotel for the night. We were in Bemidji to see our freshman daughter as we passed through, but it happened to be BSU's homecoming weekend and rooms were scarce. We had stopped at Super 8 looking for a room and the gentlemen at the front desk barely looked up as I requested a room. They told me they were full and most everything else was, but we went down the road a little further to check out the Best Western. I was hesitant as I have not had good experiences with other Best Westerns with service or room conditions. When I stepped inside Bemidji's Best Western I was greeted by Tracey with a smile and willingness to accommodate our needs. She had one room left and was willing to give it to us for a VERY reasonable rate and when I mentioned our daughter at BSU she included a discount. She also listed the amenities available and that they would be serving hors d'oeuvres later on that afternoon. The halls were clean and fresh and well lit. We stepped into our room and what a pleasant surprise! It was clean and fresh smelling. It appeared clean and was up to date in its décor. Since we hadn't showered in a few days that was our first order of business. We would need some extra shampoo which Briana kindly provided and she also offered anything else we might need. Later on we ran into Tracey in the hall and she asked about our room and if everything was ok. We used the pool and hot tub which were both great. Both were clean and not over powering with chemicals. The pool area was clean and well kept and up to date. We experienced a good night's rest and the hotel despite being at capacity was very quiet. Breakfast was great. Something for everyone. Eggs and sausage. Belgium waffles. Pastries and muffins and the list goes on. Oh, and always fresh coffee. It had rained just as the weatherman promised and the friendly staff (Debbie and Briana) helped accommodate our needs with extra bags to keep things dry on the bike. Debbie even went out of her way to locate some larger heavy-duty bags. The staff allowed us to pack up under the front entrance awning. The check-out was easy as Tracey sent our on our way. We will be back!

One night stay at the end of an 11 day camping trip. From the time I called the Inn to make reservations until check-out, everyone we dealt with was extremely friendly and helpful. Very clean room, comfortable bed, with better than average pillows. Whirlpool and swimming pool were in top shape. Breakfast buffet had the typical offerings, but the quality was better than many others that we have been to. Every time we encountered one of the staff, they asked if all was OK and if there was anything needed, Plus they gave a warm welcome to Pixie the dog. Quiet room, despite the Inn being near heavily trafficked roads. Highly recommended.
