This is a smaller, older motel that was probably re-branded to a Best Western. It is 2-story, with about 25 rooms, and all exterior corridors. There is no elevator. Upon pulling in to the smallish parking lot, just south of Hwy 198 and near an auto dealership, we thought it looked more like a Super 8 or Motel 6. It is across the street from Ryan's Place restaurant. At night, the auto dealership is deserted, so the hotel's cul de sac is not busy.
The small lobby also serves as the breakfast area, so it is somewhat cramped in the morning. They do try to have a decent breakfast, with cereals, pre-made breakfast sandwiches, pre-made pastries, fruit, and a waffle maker, etc. Most of the guests tend to be workers, who leave early, so the breakfast area was not too crowded during our visit. The desk clerk was nice and polite during check-in and also while maintaining the breakfast area (from the front desk), so no problem there.
Our room was an average size with a king bed, a bathroom counter, a good-size bathroom/shower, a table with chairs, and a dresser. The room was clean, with a 32-34" flat screen TV, refrigerator and micro-wave, lighting was good, and the bed was comfortable. Housekeeping was unobtrusive and everything worked well. The room was also quiet, even though we were on the ground floor near the middle of the parking lot. We had a small wall-mounted AC/heating unit that is typical to motels. There were relatively few outlets to plug in devices.
Overall, we paid $90 a night which I thought was high for this type of motel. The property, with its small pool, will always look like a small motel, so this should probably be re-branded to something more on the economy end of Best Western's scale. Nonetheless, the property appears to be well-run and is clean, with decent well-maintained rooms, so it wasn't a bad experience, just a little disappointing. less
