Very comfortable stay. Good price/value.
Quick summary: very comfortable stay in a clean, quiet room with nice amenities. Good price value. Friendly, professional service.
I base my evaluation on what I expect of a 3-star property. I've stayed at many 5-star properties, and this is not the Ritz, but very good price/value.
Room #110 had two queen beds, very comfy mattresses, nice bed linens, many pillows. Very quiet room, even though the hotel seemed full. As with many BW locations (we belong to the loyalty program, and are generally happy with our stays,) there is a good chest of drawers and an open closet. Good range of channels on the TV. Table with 2 chairs.
What I love: there was the right amount of blankets on the bed. Too many places lately (including some BWs) have gone to down-like comforters that are way too warm for the room unless you crank up the AC to Switzerland in January temperatures. PLEASE make this hotel the standard for all others.
Fridge and microwave. Coffee maker, iron/board. No in-room safe (most BW do not have this that I've been to recently.
Good desk and outlets for charging your devices. Complimentary wifi works well.
Bathroom has a tub/shower with good room to spread on the sink vanity. One complaint: the toiletries (shampoo, bath gel) are wall-mounted higher than what is comfortable for someone to reach in the bathtub. While I appreciate the eco-consciousness of not having all the little plastic shampoo bottles, PLEASE mount these lower so that a person taking a bath doesn't have to stand up and down multiple times to access these bath potions? (It could be a litigators dream...)
Spotless housekeeping. Very clean. Good HVAC.
Good complimentary breakfast as seems expected at BW's -- variety of breads & bakery, hot dishes of eggs and sausage, biscuits (yum!), cereals, juice, make-your-own fresh waffles.... Due diligence; no yogurt and only two green bananas left for fruit. As usual, weak BW coffee, and bagels that don't come from a good bagel place, but serviceable, and I don't expect good bagels at most places outside of major metro areas. To the plus-side: a lovely hostess offered to make guests waffles. This is an excellent idea as I'm sure many guests are not that good at it, or careful in where the batter goes.
To note: room doors open directly to the parking lot area, i.e. not interior. The area seems safe enough, but just sayin'....
There is a heated outdoor pool that looks good, but does not open until Memorial Day. I can imagine that any family who wants to keep the kiddoes amused would like the pool.
Very friendly, helpful, professional staff.
There are not many dining options right nearby, but the town of Mt airy is a short drive with many good choices.
So - a very good stop that lives up to Best Western good price-value standards. We'd be happy to stay here again. This is very close to Mt. Airy town, i.e. Mayberry, with what seems to be a lot going on with music festivals, cute shops, etc. less
