Thank you for your review, We are sorry that we had not received your reservation as it was actually made through Best Western Central reservations system, it was never made with us direct at the hotel, however the duty manager, did not shrug his shoulders he assisted to resolve the situation, he arranged for you to stay in another local hotel, he offered you the bedrooms that he had available at our hotel, which were two double rooms, not 1 x twin , 1 x double as you had booked through the central reservation system, Again the automated review came from Best western Central reservations. Your frustration should be vented at Best Western not the hotel, which is privately owned and operated.

Nice views from property.
