This hotel is very typical Best Western, the chain that thrives on granting franchises to just about any mom and pop hotel. What sets this hotel apart from others is the amazing service. The senior staff including the sales director Nick lives onsite with his wife and young daughter, so they have a vested interest in keeping the hotel in good, not great, shape.
The hotel is all about the environment, so everything is on motion sensors, from the lights in the hallways to the air conditioning in the room (it does get a bit warm when not in the room in the summer). The rooms are totally unremarkable, older decor, older tv and older albeit relatively comfortable beds.
The deluxe breakfast is the usual hot items you see in about every chain, bagged and heated eggs, bagged gravy, frozen and reheated biscuits, a waffle maker, etc.
Hate to post this here but during my time in the hotel, the Orkin man was out twice, and although I only saw a few bugs, it appears to be an issue since pest control keeps coming out.
Overall, a fine place to stop for a short stay, staff is fantastic and really makes the hotel, otherwise I wouldn't say it's much better than average at best, and probably not advisable for an extended business class stay.
