This hotel was great. Booked online and the check in process was very easy. Parking waste only complaint at the time because the restaurant at the hotel was very busy. Later in the evening the parking improved. The room was great. Great decor, comfortable furniture and newer appliances (tv, microwave, mini fridge). Loved the shower and the layout of the...

This is a nice hotel with a good restaurant inside its walls; it has a very warm atmosphere in general and many nice features including a nice pool. This was our second visit because we like it; but there were a couple things that need tweaking. The pool area and water were both pretty chilly so it wasn't very enjoyable...

Have stayed here twice while in the area for business. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable with nice water pressure for the shower. The pool is nice and the area around the pool is kept neat and clean. Breakfast is your typical motel food but the young lady kept it well stocked and...

This Best Western hotel is well appointed and the staff is cheerful and attentive. Kevin (front desk) exemplifies the high standards one might expect at a 5 star facility. Check in was simple and quick. The hot breakfast (included) was an enjoyable bonus. If I changed anything about it, it would be the "powdered eggs". My room was immaculate and...

If you have kids....may be ok! We were there for a family wedding. Check-in took forever, like no one knew what was going on. Very noisy in lobby area. Too crowded. When asking a question the staff could not answer without getting a manager. Room was too small for a king size bed. Very uncomfortable room. Breakfast too small for...

My entire family stayed here for two days for my daughters wedding. And everything that was promised happened. Correct rooms were reserved, everything we requested was provided. Shuttle service to and from the reception was spot on. No hassles and service was excellent. Definitely one of my favorites in the local area
