We only stayed one night but everything very was nice and pleasant. Check in, staff was very friendly. The room was super comfortable, Very clean. Very impressed that after we checked out, another family member that was still there was informed that we left our phone charger. Would definitely stay again.

Very nice hotel but could use an upgrade of decor in room. Breakfast needs something other than providing a carb overload. For the price of a room, breakfast could be better. The value is somewhat subjective since it is the only game in town. However, nearby hotels in towns 15 - 30 miles away of similar quality offer much better...

Really liked this property. It was very clean. Rooms were very spacious and super comfy bed. Added touch that I loved was they had dispensers on the wall in the shower filled with shampoo, conditioner and shower gel...and next to sink lotion and hand soap. So much nicer than the tiny bottles and bar soap.

My team and I just stayed here for four nights. The hotel was very clean and the rooms were nice. The staff was amazing and some of the friendliest most professional people we have ever met. I highly recommend this location and we will be back.

Once again, I was traveling for business purposes and unable to drive any further decided to spend sometime at the Best Western Chester. The hotel is historic, yet updated and you can tell the owner takes pride in the business by the way it's maintained both inside and out. The price point is mid range and to be expected for...

unfortunately i was there when the hotel was sold out and had to take a smoking room. Not being a smoker this wasn't fun for me, but i don't hold that against the hotel. It made my stay not as great but otherwise it was a great place.

Don't accept a smoking room if possible. After 4 nights I left with swollen eyes - even after a room ionizer the smell still lingered. One staff member was particularly unfriendly and I told him he lacked any semblance of CUSTOMER SERVICE. Overall the place is OK - but it only takes one guy to ruin your trip.

We stayed here during the week so I can't attest to what it is like on the weekends, but during our stay it was nice and quiet....really quiet.

We stayed here over a busy weekend and found it to be very clean, staffed with friendly people, and just what we hoped for! The lobby area is impressive, as is the area overlooking the lobby. We will stay here again.

Impromptu stop and we got the last room....and this was the only chain type hotel in Chester I think. The room was a King Whirlpool Ste I think they called it. A bit more than I normally pay for a room when on a casual road-trip, however I assume we paid a slightly higher price for it being an above...
