We came into Colton from out of state for a 50th wedding anniversary celebration from our friends, and knowing the Riverside, San Bernardino, Colton Area Hotels are a "mixed bag of tricks" as to most, if not all, being terrible, we had found this Best Western Plus here on TripAdvisor. We saw all the great reviews, so we booked our stay. We came into town a few hours early and stopped by the hotel just by chance to see if we could possible check in early, to drop off our luggage, because the wedding was starting in a hour. They were so nice, they had a ready room and allowed us to check in, Wow! The room itself, a standard king, was very large, the bed so comfy, refrig, micro, coffee maker, hair dryer, iron, and flat screen TV all you need. The A/C was ice cold, only issue was no high speed on the fan, which I informed them of, but it still worked fine as to keeping the room cold. Later when we came back, we also heard a strange screech noise from the air vent in the bathroom, which continued all night, but again, with the bath door closed, we couldn't hear it. I also reported it to the staff. The breakfast was very good, hot eggs, bacon, waffles, muffins, fruit, cereal, hot cooked oatmeal, fresh juice, just a really good selection and staff was on top of everything and the breakfast room was very large and had many tables, so unlike many hotels where your bumping into other guests trying to get your food, there was plenty of room. Overall the hotel is being kept up in great shape as to lobby, carpets, paint, outside areas are clean. The area around the hotel looks a bit sketchy, but hey, your in Colton California. Our room faced the neighborhood and the people living there were quiet so no problems as to outside noise from the street. Free parking too, and security cameras and a well lit parking lot were great to find as well. Would we stay there again, Yes, for sure, and we have tried many places in all of the Inland Empire and most ended up as trash and a terrible stay, But not this Best Western, a Real Gem of a find, thank you again! less
