Significantly better than the average Best Western.
The good: Well-maintained rooms, nice lobby, better-than-decent pool and hot tub, good staff. The free breakfast was way better than what you'd expect from a free Best Western breakfast. (Here, they provide made-to-order main dishes with a generously stocked assortment of buffet items.) Very attractively designed courtyard. Free wi-fi.
The downsides: "Meh" surroundings, so no rooms have any real views. Even with the nice courtyard, there's no way to escape the sense of being at a motel rather than hotel. The value was solid, but hardly remarkable. (They appear to have way too many rooms for the customer base, so maybe the Best Western management believes it needs to avoid many discounts in order to maintain revenue. Understandable. Still, my sense is that at a Priceline rate with a $20 room upgrade, I'd pretty much paid for everything I received ... at rack rate, I'd have felt shortchanged.) Pool towels are small and thin, yet still require a trip to the front desk to obtain.
If I needed a place in Thousand Oaks in the future, this would do fine - and there's no reason to avoid this hotel at all. But I can't say that I'd seek it out.
