This hotel has an absolutely gorgeous view of the river. They had plenty of breakfast options or as many as possible during the pandemic. Everything was clean and the pool and spa were spotless! Staff was super friendly and professional as well. Truly lucked out with this gem.

Hotel's Favourite
Great stay! Friendly front desk staff was very welcoming. Room was very clean and smelled nice. Highly recommend the river view since the other side is just a view of a few old railroad cars and track and no balcony. Was pleasantly surprised with the chairs on the patio, they were very sturdy and comfortable. Hotel is located away from downtown, so it's a little more secluded and quiet. The exterior is beautiful and landscape is well maintained. The beds were very comfortable, not super soft, but soft enough to support your body. A/C worked great!! Only thing is occasionally you would smell campfire smoke from the firepit by the river, but it wasn't bad. NOTE: YOU WILL NEED YOUR WALL CHARGER FOR ANY DEVICES SINCE THERE AREN'T ANY USB PORTS IN THE ROOM! The hotel definitely takes safety seriously. They provide sanitation dispensers on each floor and on the elevator. They also ask that you wear a mask in the common areas. The bag breakfast not so great....banana, whole grain pop tart and granola bar. Overall would definitely return here again!

I had a river view room, it was beautiful, they had a nice grilling area and a fire pit. I stay in hotels a lot and the bed is probably the most important thing to me and the bed was very comfortable and good shower too. I would stay here again if in the area, I really like the Best Western Plus.
