When my family first arrived to Best Host Inn, we were exhausted from a 7 hour drive only to be told our reservation was cancelled due to the payment not going through. Although the money had been taken from our card and we showed all proof of our reservation the Manager refused to let us stay unless we paid again...

The staff was friendly and professional. Peter quickly checked us in to our very clean room and Ami gave us a delightful welcome basket with bottled water, wine, and snacks. The hotel looks to be newly renovated. The pool is warm and beautiful, but the best thing here is the fabulous staff.

I checked in after 10:30 pm on Jan 2, 2017 and Jessie was working the Front Desk. Sparkling personality, wonderful customer service. My room was awesome! Clean, clean, clean sweet linens, mini kitchenette and I even got a gift basket with a bottle of wine, water and assorted goodies. They had a breakfast buffet that was decent. I would recommend...

This hotel is a work of renovation in progress so it is hard to review, The good: the staff are extremely accommodating, with the desk staff very friendly, very present, and outgoing. We didn't use the indoor heated pool but it seemed adequate. Our room was spacious (king), clean and odor-free; the bathroom was great, with an outside sink and...

It is clear they are trying to fix this hotel up, so maybe when that is done it will be better. Right now, there are a lot of details needing attention. There is scuffed and scratched paint everywhere, especially around door frames and along baseboards. Places that were repainted were done very sloppily, and you can see paint from the...

I stayed over the what seemed quite a busy holiday weekend. Right when I got there I was very amused by the amount of decorations the hotel had on display. After checking in, a clerk by the name of Hui I believe assisted me on carrying my luggage to my room. The next morning at breakfast, I saw the same...

My friends and I were supposed to stay at a friend's place in town but found out last minute that we couldn't. Found this place after a long day and was immediately blown away by the friendly service of Tisha and Jesse. We were offered water, fresh fruit, and homemade cookies upon arrival, had a seamless check in, and was...

First let me say the staff is great! As everyone before me has said you will get a gift basket with wine, water, chips and crackers in it. Kids get a prize also. We had an issue with our initial room (no hot water) the staff fixed that right away for us (moved our room). We also asked for a...

I normally have a hard time sleeping when out of my comfort zone. It was so comfortable and inviting. I cant wait to stay again. The staff was down to earth and friendly. Everything was clean and easy to find.
