Good Service and a Friendly staff. Offered a Good Breakfast with glassware as the dinning utensils. The Hotel was clean and it had a good atmosphere. It also has an easy access to HWY 35. Plus there was a QT gas station and a Cracker Barrel restaurant within two blocks. We will be staying there when we return.

I see you are yet another fan of our Cracker Barrel restaurant nearby. The best time of the year to enjoy it is on a frosty evening, when you walk the quarter mile there and enjoy the ambiance of the real fireplace with its warmth and crackling logs, that makes for an unbeatable dining experience. Thank you for the kind...

NOT A BABY/TODDLER FRIENDLY HOTEL!!! They did not have a crib or high chair. We stayed at several Best Western Hotels on our trip and this was the only one that couldnt accomadate our 2 year old. We thought that all BW have similar standard but we were wrong.

Dear Parent. I am sorry for not meeting your expectations, but in the case of baby gear there are no standards and mandatory equipment such as ADA, and parents are encouraged to check about availability of such equipment upon making the reservation. We certainly welcome families with babies in our hotel but do not claim to provide baby equipment and...

Room is excellent other than they need to discover fabric softener for towels. Stiff like cardboard. Lighting over vanity so low can hardly see face closely to shave. Imagine women have fits trying to put makeup on. Better program listing on TV channel guide. Makes no sense. You half to hit every channel to see where you are. Breakfast good.But...

Thank you for your review. You will be happy to note that we are now replacing our over the sink lighting to new, far brighter and longer lasting led bulbs that give over 500 lumens each. The tv lineup is subject to our local provider's choices and unfortunately the numbering has changed too frequently lately necessitating reprinting more and more...

The entire staff were very friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The room was outstanding and the bed was awesome. It also had a jazzes tub which my husband totally enjoyed.

Thanks for your great review. I am glad you were able to enjoy our hospitality and especially the hot tub to soak out the worries and aches of the day. We always try to upgrade our Best Western Rewards members to our suites. If they sit vacant why not make some folks happy, right? Thanks for noticing.

Very nicely decorated, modern but tasteful colors, actual real wood floors in elevators, lobby, and entire 1st floor rooms (for pets). Breakfast not fantastic, but quite adequate. Kathy at front desk just the best! Kids running in halls late, but what are you gonna do? Hot tub a little weak on jets, but overall my wife and I were quite...

The room was clean and beautiful. The bathroom was large and well lit, and there were mirrors you could get close to. The big negative, for us, was that the air conditioning unit kept waking us as it cycled on and off, and setting it to "FAN ON" didn't solve the problem.

Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed our room decor and features. Sorry for the air conditioning limitations but they have to be individual for each unit for ease of guest control. For that reason they have to be smaller and less efficient then a central air conditioning system such as in public spaces, which while quieter...

Reviewed 20 August 2016

Clean, handy to freeways, quiet. Good breakfast. Helpful staff. Nice pool, adequate workout room. Included wifi. We only spent one night here but found it to be a decent value. Paid $139 for 3 adults including taxes. Was on ground floor but had a stomper overhead. Laminate floors contribute to noise transmission, but rude folks always prevail.

Nice hotel. Great location and friendly staff. Great internet. I was connected all day while I worked and didn't experience any issues. Breakfast was included which was a plus and the social hour during the evening was appreciated after a long day. Nice size rooms
