“Bad Best Western”
Reviewed April 2, 2005

We have stayed at Best Westerns in many parts of the country with good results. This was in a rather seedy area of Tucson, near the university. The room smelled musty and the carpet was torn. There was no stopper in the sink, and the makeup mirror did not work. We asked for additional pillows and were told they had none. The free breakfast offered choices of toast or sweet rolls, and our food was put in front of us without asking what we would like, with slow service as well. The night before we had stayed at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort (beautiful) for a mere $70 more. This was a lower end motel that looked like it may have been nice when new. They did honor the internet price when I showed them the printout; however I would not stay at or recommend this hotel or that area of the city.

The daily cleaning was satisfactory. The problem areas included closet door not hung. The sink did not have a stopper. The curtains were dirty and the air conditioner did not work very well. The filters looked like they needed to be changed. The pool furniture was dirty as well as the carpet in the exercise room.

When I checked in at 6:30 PM, my room was not cleaned from the prior vistor. By 8,m it was clean and at 9:30 PM, a stranger opened my door with a key! The front desk callled and asked me why I was in that room!The hot tub was broken. As I checked out, I mentioned this along with the intruder story. The "owner", Eve, began yelling at me and telling me to get out of her hotel!Wanta stay somewhere where the equipment doesn't work, where you meet new people in the privacy of your own room and get yelled at? Stay here!

Working AND Staying at the Best Western was the worst experience I've EVER had. The staff were as rude as anyone I've EVER known. I DO NOT suggest going to this hotel. I ended up staying at the lodgeonthedesert.com. Best time I've had in a while!
