When rating a hotel or motel with the 1-5 star system, I think it’s important to note; the stars given are for the rating of a hotel in its own category. In other words, you wouldn’t give a cheap motel 5 stars in comparison to a Four Seasons or Ritz. Well, you get the point…
So how does BW in Canton rate, compared to its peers? Well, I’ve certainly stayed at nicer Best Western Hotels in my day, as this one is quite a bit dated. The rooms could use a super update, with new carpet, better bathrooms area, and a nicer shower. And the pool, which is rather on the small side, was in need of a major scrubbing. The bottom was filthy. But my room overall was clean; and the A/C worked really good, considering it was 102 outside.
But the reason I’m giving it 4 instead of a 2 or 3, is simply the service. The staff is super friendly, and seems to work very hard to make your stay as comfortable as possible. And I’ll note, the continental breakfast was quite good. The lady running it is in there super early, and has everything out hot and ready to go. A shout out to her, and especially the gal on the evening shift, who both made for a pleasant stay.
I’m not sure this place would compare to a Hampton Inn or HIE in this category, but given the excellent folks working here, I’d certainly recommend it for a one night stay. less
