Tim, thank you very much for your review. We have made many upgrades to the property including but not limited to new lighting, carpet, linnens, drapes, repainting of the exterior, new granite and ceramic flooring. The staff and I are very excited about the changes the hotel has made and look forward to the improvements coming in the future. We do hope you will continue to visit to see how the Best Western La Grande Hacienda continues to grow and thrive.
