I usually trust Best Western to give me the same service wherever I travel. Not so in Omak. Don’t get me wrong, every person who works there was polite, helpful...they could not ask for better employees from the front desk to housekeeping. I blame management.
I was told “the early bird gets the bacon”. This is correct. First morning we went down for breakfast shortly before 7 AM to find there was no breakfast meat, no one in the breakfast room had it on their plate and there was none in the serving container. None showed up during the whole duration of our breakfast. (In the end, it didn’t matter. We went at 6:20 the last day and there was plenty. It’s not worth getting). My biggest complaint is the powdered scrambled eggs served every morning. Fake food, leaves you gassy and stinky the rest of the day. Gross! Nothing offered for breakfast was up to the Best Western standard. Not the cooks fault, management is to blame. They obviously don’t plan to feed all of their guest during the 3 hour breakfast window. Seriously lacking.
After looking at the offerings Day 2, we opted to go downtown for a good breakfast.
On another note, if you provide cheap toilet paper, I will judge you. Advice, BYOTP, avoid bum lint.
The hotel was full of construction workers while we were there. While they were polite when they weren’t swearing, they did track in a lot of dirt. Don’t go in the hot tub, I’m just warning you. Sitting in bubbling human frappe is not cool. I told the front desk it needed to be cleaned, he said it would be done the next morning. It wasn’t (dirty grime in the hot tub remained), and the same little girls barrettes that were sitting beside the pool the night before were still there the next night, indicating the pool had not been cleaned at all. Also, the wrong paint was used and it is peeling like crazy around the hot tub.
There are other, nicer places to stay in Omak. less
