AC wasn't working the first night, they replaced it the next morning. We were told they didn't have a replacement when I called the desk the first night, but the next morning there was one. There are stairs and no elevators at this location, so if you can't use stairs you will probably want to steer clear. Good restaurants in... More

This hotel was what we expected. Not fancy, somewhat dated and just average. It wasn't expensive, so it was okay. One thing we didn't like was the window in our first-floor room was not able to be locked. The latch was broken. We put a wooden hanger in the slide track for the night. Front desk satff when we arrived... More

Everything met and exceeded our expectations except for staff in the pub/lounge. We felt like we were an intrusion. Pricing of this type of room is a bit pricey. Included Breakfast is superior to most as you are taken care of by a server and give a a few options to select from. They even gave us a coffee to... More

Hotel is dated and not very clean. There was an awful musk smell in the room. I'm pretty sure it aided to my ridiculous allergies during the stay. The staff is very friendly and breakfast was ok. I've stayed at Hilton properties that were 10X nicer and spent less money. Was not impressed

Very disappointed with how manager and room attendant handled me having my service dog there in my room. Very rude and unprofessional (at least the two people I talked to about this). Wait staff was pleasant and happy to serve us. Kudos to those ladies.

This is an older Best Western that is in average condition, needs to be updated. Nice small rest/bar in the building with very freindly staff. The breakfast needs to be improved. I would stay again, but the options in town are limited.

We have used Best Western properties all over the country. They are our first choice and this is a first class property. I would recommend it to anyone. Complimentary breakfast was one of the best I have ever had with actual table service. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Room and bed was excellent.

The toilet in our room did not flush. The staff handed us a plunger and said we should fix it ourselves.When that did not help, they were reluctant to move us to a new room and seemed to find it amusing.

We went to a wedding this past weekend and needed a place to stay nearby. Decided on the Best Western because we read other reviews that described the breakfast experience. To start though, the hotel room came with a mini fridge and Microwave. We found the bed comfy and the room clean. The staff was pleasant. We didn't swim as... More

We came to visit family and were very comfortable. The room was clean, staff friendly and the location and price were excellent. We will definitely stay there again. We stayed here in the past and were not satisfied. This time we were very satisfied.
