This being the opening of the summer season we were very excited to stay at this Best Western to enjoy our holiday weekend. Since we didnt have reservations, on the way to Virginia we found a coupon in a booklet from a rest stop for a $49.99 one night stay. We arrived at the hotel approx. 8:30pm on Thursday May 24th. Check in took forever because one girl was working the check in counter and the other kept running off. It was only us and another couple checking in but the check in person seemed new and not sure what she was doing and the other girl kept pushing more work off to her everytime she came in from "the back"...I swear their is a cot back there or something because about 2 hours later we went down to book another night and the disappearing girl was still disappearing!
This hotel has a restaurant attatched. It is a Denny's and IT WAS BELOW AVERAGE but the bartender was GREAT!..(see review)
The rooms were clean and smelled ok...we have had better, but to tell you the truth we have never stayed at a Best Western before so we can only compare them to other chains. We were a little concerned because the police were at the hotel all night waiting outside a room on the Kings Dominion side of the hotel, and then again the next morning...knocking on doors and having the maides open some doors for them...We dont know what that was about.
The pool area is clean and they offer putt putt golf (3 holes) and ping pong. Our suggestion to Best Western is to have an ADULT swim at a certain time so adults can swim without the kids taking over the pool which happened both nights we were there.
This hotel also has a free shuttle to Kings Dominion. This is NOT a part of Best Western. Best Western contracts Kings Dominion for this service so the drivers are Kings Dominion employees and they are VERY pleasant. The shuttles are air conditioned AND it saved us $12.00 for parking. The shuttle gives you door to door service also You must get tickets to board from the front desk of the hotel and the front desk does not inform you of this.
Hopefully magement to train employees properly from the begining and things would move much smoother for the guests who are already stressed from traveling.
