Don't be fooled by the lobby lipstick and glowing Trip Advisor reviews. This place is not worth the meager savings. Done with Best Western after this stay.
After checking in and pulling around the building to access our room, we were greeted by about 6 sketchy looking characters hanging out at the end of one of the building entrances. Scenes from a barroom.
Downhill from here. I am not sure what the acrid stench in the hall was, a cross between paint fumes, Fritos, and stinky feet. Pungent is an understatement. More sensory experiences awaited once in our room, as I opted to leave my shoes on after sticking to the carpet.
After a quick bite out, we returned to our room for the evening. The fire dept greeted us this time. Apparently some hooligan thought it amusing to pull the fire alarm. Hours of flashing lights and a frazzled desk clerk on the edge of tears. Classy place.
Unconsciousness couldn't come quickly enough, but this proved challenging with rock-hard beds and a too stuffy room thanks to a broken A/C. In addition, we could hear every syllable of conversations in neighboring rooms and from passersby in the hallway. Sound-proofing must not be in the BW building budget.
In the morning, hoping to salvage something of the stay, we banked on the breakfast Trip Advisors raved about, only to be met with a bus load (or 2) of Chinese tourists. We witnessed the diners descending on the breakfast refill cart like ravenous vultures. We returned to the room to wait them out a bit. When we tried again, we found that they had all but wiped out the breakfast offerings. A pitiful vestige of half-frozen pastries, filthy serving area, and a forkless canister beckoned us to dine. An apropos ending to our worst accommodations yet.
Glad to be leaving you, BW! We won't be back! less
