Just a one night stay, but a swim, a spa and use of the guest laundry made it very worthwhile. Room was clean and quiet and breakfast, while typical of budget hotels was plentiful, fresh and filling. Friendly staff at check in just added to the stay. The pool is way better than the average hotel pool, but please watch...

This hotel is up to usual standards for Best Western. Small but very clean room with decent amenities. Bathroom was very cramped. Desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Location is convenient to stores and to a number of restaurant options. Overall a good affordable rest stop.

We had a very nice one night stay. Our room was very comfortable, clean and attractive. The bed was wonderfully comfortable. Breakfast was very good. The staff we encountered were very professional, pleasant and helpful. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would be happy to stay here again.

Usual standard of rooms for this chain no problems with parking or cleaning. We love the US as the people as so friendly and welcoming, the older lady who checked us in was not welcoming or friendly at all unlike the other 2 receptionists I dealt with, we treated as a nuisance.

Simply put, an over night stay with the feel and treatment normally reserved for resort type accommodations. Clean rooms, well maintained pool and Jacuzzi, breakfast for the vegan and the carnivore friendly helpful staff.

We had a nice, clean room on the second floor (by request as it cuts down the noise if no one is above you). The staff person who checked us in (Tina?) was the best I had in the two weeks we travelled. She was VERY friendly and welcoming, and she let us know about the main/extra amenities, like the...

Recently, my boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel. The rate was pretty decent for the area. The room, shower, sink, floor, beds, TV, table, and towels were all clean. The room was nice. The air conditioning and heater worked and we used a lot of AC. The stay was wonderful overall. We felt safe and had no disturbances while...

Do not miss staying here if possible. While a room for 2 is small, it is well furnished, colorful & VERY clean. Note: Most of the 1st floor room guests must step-up into the rooms (well marked with yellow paint). It was impressive to note a lift at the pool & separate jacuzzi for handicapped guests! The breakfast is tasty,...
