We have stayed at several Best Western properties in recent years, and have found this to be pretty much the case; they need updating. Our room here was perfectly comfortable, good night's sleep, but couldn't help but notice the paint chips and soiling everywhere, a weak shower and an even worse shower curtain that didn't even cover the span of the tub. Friendly and accommodating front desk clerk, grounds need upkeep, especially the pool area which need a good sweeping. And...no hair dryer.

Stayed one night. Check in and out was easy and pleasant. Too cold for pool, but looked very clean and inviting. Took a long time for the hot water to get hot. I thought bed was comfortable, but pillows were to thin. Breakfast was grab and go. Cereal, breakfast bars ect. No microwave.

We were there for only one night. Check-in was seamless, quick and staff were friendly. Room had a fresh look, fresh paint, fixtures, etc. Carpet was horrible - smelly and dirty, which made the room have an off-odor; which made our clothes smell the same way. Breakfast was the "new normal" for COVID-19 - grab and go, a piece of fruit and cereal/granola bar. The pool was nice, we were the only ones using it at the time of our visit. It would be an okay place to stay for a day or two. All in all, we would return if needed.

When we checked in, the room smelled sour and musty. Since we had moved in late, we spent the first night in the room before asking for a "clean" room or a refund as I had found another hotel. They moved us to another room which appeared better since they had sprayed air freshener. That wore off. Additionally, there were a bunch of kids in the pool and they said their mother worked there. They were splashing and jumping and screaming so we left the pool. Apparently, their mother worked there a while ago but no longer worked there. I did notice when someone from the hotel walked out, the mother walked around the corner, apparently hiding from staff. The pool was unpleasant. The room was filthy. Food and bugs on the nightstand. Mold on the bottom of the nightstand and bed skirt which could have been vomit or old beverage. NOT COVID CLEAN BY ANY MEANS!!!!!
