Exceeded our expectations, and we'd absolutely stay again

03/12/2016 WaOz1,

When we booked this hotel, the price was so low for the area, we seriously weren't sure what to expect. We were hoping for clean sheets and towels, anything else would be a bonus. I'm pleased to sa... more

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. Our breakfast hours are 6am-10am and if you are on the road before that time our guests can arrange for a "Grab N Go" breakfast bag from the desk staff. All Best Western's provide this service. The water pressure is unfortunately out of the hotel's control. Due to the drought we are required by the City to use specific low flow showerheads. We understand the inconvenience and sympathize. We are please that you enjoyed your stay and hope for your return

Basic but great for the price.
