The Best Western Hotel in Opelika, Alabama is a wonderful place to stay if you are attending meetings or events at Auburn University. The rooms are clean, spacious, and well-stocked with essential items. The staff is very friendly, efficient, and eager to please the customers. The free breakfast had a wide variety of tasty foods and beverages, served in a...

The upsides are it's clean. (Really clean) Staff was unfailingly cheerful and helpful. The hot breakfast is better than most. (Sausage, eggs, fruit, pastries, cereal and yogurt. And instant cheese grits?) Excercise room is adaquate. Property is located close to a wide variety of eating options. Downsides are the constant sirens from an ambulance station/hospital around the corner, and the...

This hotel is very plain but the front desk young lady was very informative. The water in the bath was very hard to get to be hot so if you weren't careful you would make it freezing real fast. There also was no bedspread making us feel that this hotel really tried to cut corners. The toweling seemed rather old...

Donald E, Thank you for the survey. I apologize your stay with us was not to the standards you should receive from Best Western. I will look into the plumbing and find out how to fix the problem. We have triple sheeting, so the top layer may seem like a sheet but looking closely it is actually a comforter. The...

This hotel is pretty good. The front desk staff was friendly, there is a free breakfast and the location is good. There is no elevator so I had to drag my suitcase up and down stairs. In addition, the pressure in the shower was very low and the water was either scalding or cold.

Mrs H, Thank you for the review. We do not have an elevator, however the front desk agents are required to ask all guests going to 2nd floor if help with luggage is needed. I apologize if this was not done. I will definitely have the plumbing looked into. We hope to see you again. Regards, Anil Patel

I will make BW my hotel of choice. The staff at Auburn/Opelika was extremely fantastic. The Pancake Bar was to die for. They made me feel right at home. I was mostly impressed by the shampoo and the body wash that was already in the shower. I was greeted when I walked in and I was also told to have...

Visited for sons basic graduation. Takes about 35 minutes to get to the post. Allow an hour and remember that these cities straddle a time zone, so GA is an hour ahead.

Tx TravelPro, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. The exterior doors are supposed to be locked in late evening and reopened early morning. I will definitely find out why this has not been happening, and we are currently getting quoted to change out our existing lock system. It is my hope you do give us another...

Nice BW, very reasonably priced. Wi-fi was good, direct tv a pain to deal with. Breakfast was basic, area small. Room was clean. Basic toiletries and good towels.
