As I get older I'm getting more picky about my hotels and now try to avoid the budget-centric hotels. My family and I were very pleased with this hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and nicely appointed, though a bit small. My only real complaint was the bed was too firm for my taste. Great pool and the hotel breakfast was a good deal. It was $9/adult and kids eat free but the food selection was much better than the typical "free" breakfast I've had at other hotels so it was worth the cost. I would absolutely stay at this hotel again.

Checked in a little early front desk staff was accommodating, even put my family in connecting rooms. Had an issue on my end they helped me solve and staff was really polite. Would go back first chance I got. Family enjoyed the pool and fitness area. The only bad thing about my stay was that I was only there for two days would have loved to stay at least a week. Wish I could have stayed longer will be staying there in the future.

When we arrived, we were upgraded to a room with a hot tub in the bedroom. The room was very big, clean and the bed was comfortable. The view overlooking the main lobby was very nice as was the lobby itself. The staff was friendly, courteous and very professional. There was a problem with an additional reservation which was resolved quickly and a room was made available to us. The hotel was located to area restaurants, service stations and shopping malls and right off the main highway.

I stayed at this Best Western this past weekend (August 2013) when i attended the Joyce Meyer Conference. While I had a comfortable and welcoming stay my room had a few hiccups. When we walked in I notice that the microwave and refrigerator were turn off. I had some food items that needed to be refrigerated. So after about three minutes we realized that we had to switch on the main light switch (in corridor) for it to be turned on. The bad thing was- at night to go to bed if we switched off the main switch which was connected to the light the microwave and fridge would also switch off. Long story short, we slept with the lights in the corridor on. It wasn't as bad because we were exhausted after such amazing conference anyway! I would stay there again. I might just switch rooms- hopefully they all do not have the same problem. (Room 269)
