Hotel ticks most boxes, great service, nice rooms ( if a little dark), good breakfast, free shuttle bus, but no bar. Fortunately they sell wine by the bottle, and there is a bar at the hotel next door

We stayed at several Best Western Hotels on our vacation but as it was late at night and we needed sleep and did not have much choice for hotels at that time we were surprised at the high rate for a hotel of this mid range. It was only after we found out that a softball tournament was going on...

The rooms still had some construction noise during the day, but nothing that was totally obnoxious. The hotel is conveniently located close to several restaurants, shopping and a grocery store. Breakfast was fairly decent with a nice...

We have stayed many times at this hotel as it is near our family. The room we stayed in this time had been renovated and was outstanding. The new computer center and breakfast area was a great improvement. The staff was very friendly and efficient. This was all we could ask in a hotel.
