With a route which would take us through the park on the next day, we picked the Best Western as a conveniently located overnight stop. The place was as expected up to Best Western standards, and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
The room was fine and large enough, and in the usual Best Western style, a small fridge was provided. There's also a pool, which we did not use.
Not certain if this was a ''feature'' of our room, but whenever someone else (above, below, left or right) turned on a water tap/shower/toilet flush, we could clearly hear it in our room. Seems that whoever did the piping installations had not heard about pipe-wrap and other noise attenuating options.This took some getting used to and actually woke me up once.
Breakfast was served in the usual ''help yourself'' style and was quite ample. A nice touch would have been a frequent fresh refill of the sausages, hash-browns and eggs, since they were from when the breakfast room opened and quite old and dried out by 10:00 AM. The coffee was excellent and really hot.
The provided plastic plates/cups and ''cutlery'' might save labour, but this is not an environmentally sound policy, nor are these implements pleasing to use.
Assuming that about $ 20.00 was included in the room rate of $ 190.00 for the breakfast , a trip to a local diner for a freshly cooked breakfast might be more appealing to some visitors. less
