“Terrific breakfast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2012

Was very pleased with my stay, especially the great breakfast - one of the best of any I've stayed in New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, South Carolina and Georgia! The omlets and sausage patties on the buffet were hot and fresh and the chef kept bringing out more fresh from the griddle - judging from the number of cars in the parking lot the place was pretty full. The room, hall and pool were clean and the desk staff was pleasant and courteous. I arrived around noon, and my room wasn't "cleared for occupancy" until 3, which wasn't a big deal; had lunch and went to the golf course. I will definitely stay here again!

The breakfast we had there was so good and hot and a good selection of food and was tasty. The help was friendly also Everyone in our party (six ) thought it was an excellent breakfast The hotel was comfortable too and if we were in the area again we would consider staying here again,especially for the breakfast.

I wasn't expecting too much after booking this room through Priceline, but, Boy were we surprised.
I'd stay here again in a heart beat. Room was clean, staff was friendly, breakfast was plentiful and delicious. Thanks for the great stay.

We were actually booked to stay at the Hampton Inn but they were overbooked and sent us to the Best Western. When we arrived, there was a waiting line and nobody was manning the front desk. The room was non-smoking but the hallway and elevator smelled of smoke. We could not get the remote control to operate properly. The shower head had very little water pressure. The breakfast was not very good. Who serves fried corn sausage on a stick for breakfast? I made a waffle that was OK. The milk jug was labled Skim but clearly it was either whole milk or 2%, definitely not skim. The bed was comfortable. We were glad that we only had to stay here one night as we were passing thru the area. There is no hot tub at this hotel but there is a small indoor swimming pool which was crowded so we did not use it. The carpeting in the hallway was stained. There are restaurants nearby and a Walmart across the street in walking distance. If you stay in the area, be sure to check out Rock City Park which is 5 miles south on Route 16. Awesome huge rock formations and a beautiful view with a cute gift shop/museum. Admission is only $4.50 for adults. Bring a camera.
