Outside of traveling to Las Vegas you really don’t expect to find properties that still allow smoking in the rooms but this one does. If you are a smoker this is perfect for you! If you are bothered by the smell of cigarette smoke , suffer from allergies or have asthma this is not the place for you. They only have s handful of smoking rooms but just like it’s impossible to have a smoking section in a restaurant the smell permeates this entire hotel. The pet rooms are on the same floor as the smoking rooms and I was choking from smoke in the hallways. Our room wreaked of stale cigarette smoke, wet dog and bad carpet cleaning. You can tell this is a smoking hotel when you walk in the lobby!
Other than that there are a lot of big rigs in the lot not an issue except Parking can be hard to find. You can walk to Denny’s, Wendy’s or subway and gas is nearby. The rooms were the smallest of all of the 6 best westerns we stayed at this trip and the most expensive. The HVAC was extremely loud and you could not keep the room temps even either too hot or too cold. There is a fridge and a microwave which is nice. Tv is fine.
The wi Fi is useless at least on the 3rd floor we got one bar and could not connect to anything. You have to ring a bell at the front desk for service. The breakfast by far was the worst out of all the locations as well. The food was all cold and stale . The lady working through breakfast room was very friendly though.
For people with pets this was the only BW where animals can go under beds which is a bad thing for pets. We had to spend half the morning down on our hands and knees trying to get our cats out from under the beds down on our hands and knees on the nasty carpet.
I would not stay here again primarily because of the smoking. I think if I were a smoker I would be happy to find this hotel as it’s a rarity. Otherwise no.
