Too slow internet service. Even on my daily report, they didn't solve the problem. I was almost at the stage to leave the hotel but after changed the room, it was good. Except Internet rest were fine. I liked their breakfast service

Only chose this hotel because they had suites that slept 6, and we were traveling as a large family group. Plenty of parking, easy check in and spacious rooms. The best part of the stay was the complimentary breakfast. Lots to choose from, including hot options such as scrambled egg, bacon and sausage, freshly cooked by the friendly and efficient...

Hotel needs remodeling - not just paint this and that and call it good. We are not trying to put you guys down, we want you to succeed. Please update and remodel this Best Western. Ethernet connection to internet is needed in each room. The way breakfast is served needs improvement. Overall we were satisfied with this hotel, but the...

Nice looking hotel. Friendly desk service. Odd room: the bathroom sink is not in the bathroom; it's in the room itself. Strange architectural design. Breakfast was just okay. There was no cream cheese for the bagels, nor was there any jam or jelly. Not the best breakfast one can enjoy.

Old saggy mattresses, bad food. We came for a wedding and had to spend 4 nights there. End up with back and neck pain. Could not wait to get out from that hotel. Never again at that place. Would not recommend to anybody.

Great hotel for the price. The free parking and breakfast makes it even a better deal. Only drawback was upon check in, I requested a room away from the elevators, what did I get? A room by the elevator and also in front of the outside staircase.

Had to come suddenly because our home had flooded and we needed somewhere to be. We booked and while the outside is nothing exciting, the rooms were beautiful! Totally not what I was expecting! Two rooms - a sitting area and a bedroom, both of which were immaculate. Totally spacious enough for my family of 5 to spread out. The...

I was surprised to see how large the room was with the single king and hot tub. However, there were way too many downsides with this hotel to make up for it, and I'm generally not very picky. All I wanted was a place to sleep and maybe watch tv. Well, the AC doesn't work for one. The room was...
