This Best Western doesn't sport the latest, greatest curb appeal, as it is an older establishment - in fact, when I first drove by it, I wondered if anyone really stayed there. My daughter and I weren't planning an overnight stay, but a severe thunderstorm with flooding changed our minds about traveling, so I checked prices for the three hotels I saw in town. We like to stay at Best Western for their Rewards Program, but this one looked a little "sketchy" (as my daughter would say). I decided to try it out based on a couple trip advisors who indicated they were pleased.
Check-in was great; the gentleman handling our arrival was mannerly and helpful. he thoroughly explained breakfast for guests, how to use the television remote, and just had a pleasant conversation, which was very welcoming.
Off we went to our room. My daughter said, "This should be interesting" as we had to give the door to our room a little kick to get it open. It WAS interesting! The room was fantastic! No weird odor, beautifully updated and very clean. There was a refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee maker, iron and ironing board and digital alarm clock. Granite counter top by bathroom sink area. This room even had a full-length mirror - always nice to have! The bed was comfortable - not exceptionally firm - but we sleep well. Plenty of pillows. There is an indoor pool available, but we didn't investigate that amenity. Breakfast included many items from which to choose such as orange and apple juices, milk, yogurt with several toppings available, cold cereals, pastries, toast, bagels, apples, biscuits and gravy, a scrambled egg/hashbrown dish with salsa and cheddar cheese on the side, french toast, and pancakes.A worker promptly cleaned-up and put away all breakfast items at 9:00; another hotel guest arrived ten minutes later while I was finishing my food, and was disappointed because they had missed-out. (They should've had the hotel give them a wake-up call...)
I highly recommend this hotel - you know the 'ol saying, "Don't judge a book by its cover!" less
