Spent two nights at this hotel on the way to South Carolina from Missouri. The first night was September 27 and the second was October 3. Neither visit was memorable and that's actually a good thing. We made reservations for late arrival times and everything went smoothly.
The employees at the desk were friendly and not in a phony way - they were simply nice people. The foyer was clean, the rooms were nice, the parking lot was easy to navigate, and the free breakfast was nicely prepared and offered a little something for anyone. The only room for improvement would be to serve better hash browns.
It's been a long time since I stayed at a hotel where everything seemed to click. The Best Western Cedar Bluff Inn ranks as one of the best stops I've ever made and I've made a lot stops in more than 40 years of travel.
It's worth mentioning that while searching for a hotel, I read a lot of reviews on TripAdvisor and other sites. Since the reviews for this property mostly averaged in the four out of five range, I settled on this hotel. When I called to make my first night's reservation – about a week in advance – I was told the rate was $159. However, while speaking to the young lady on the desk, I asked if she would Google what I saw... she did... and she gave me the rate I found, which was $74 a night.
Upon arrival on night one, I asked the young lady who checked us in if she would make another reservation for the second night and would she extend the same rate? She checked her bookings, said rooms were available, she would extend the rate, and we were set for the return. We even got the same rooms.
The entire staff (housekeeping, front desk, food service, and maintenance) was friendly and I'm sure they encounter some crusty and crabby travelers. Had I waked in a bad mood, it would have gone away in a hurry. There were fresh cookies on the counter and nice person on the other side of the counter. I really like this place and would stay here again if I'm down that way. less
