“Great family spot”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

We stayed one night for our Dinosaur Valley trip and I thought this hotel was perfect. Big rooms, free popcorn, small arcade, awesome breakfast, and great pool and hot tub. Staff was friendly and best location. Perfect family hotel!

About average. While clean, it was showing appreciable wear in the room, especially in the restroom. Breakfast was mediocre, lacking fresh fruit and anything hot, save the waffles. Mixed reviews on the staff.

Room Tip: Look for best prices.

The staff was friendly, professional, and helpful.
The pricing for a king suite was a little high for week nights.
The WiFi signal was weak and could be much better.
The breakfast was blasé with plain begals, plain cereals and plain waffles.
Real eggs, real bacon, and real SOS would have helped.

Caring professional staff. Great value and good location. Rooms are spacious and have every convince needed. Breakfast is great. Nice sitting areas outside. Right across from the EXPO center. Be sure to see the murals on the inner walls.

We just got home after staying at Best Western for over a month while working nearby. We started staying at the last minute after another hotel lost our reservation. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate us, and make our stay comfortable. They were great!

The hotel itself was built with extreme attention to detail, and is unique.

Some items to make the hotel 5 stars: Serve some meat at breakfast and upgrade the internet connection. These would both be easy to change and make a big difference (at least for me).

If we work in the area again, we will definitely put this hotel at the top of our choices for accommodations.

Room Tip: The ground floor has some rooms that open onto a covered porch. The porch has rocking chairs, benche...
