All I can say is WOW! I would never pick a Best Western to stay at just driving down the highway but after searching and reading reviews we made reservations here. This place does not disappoint. The scenery, the staff, the rooms, the amenities all were great.
We had a corner river view room on the ground floor and was nice size (not sure if it was bigger or smaller than a typical room). The room had a walkout patio that you could sit out and enjoy the view. The room was spotless except for an empty pack of cigarettes on the patio.
The pool area was spotless and stocked with plenty of towels. The kids enjoyed it very much. The only drawback was the handicap lift to get in and out of the tub was not working. Front desk said it needed a new battery pack.
They did have a free breakfast in the morning and again everything looked extremely clean and fresh.
Outside there was a fire pit area with a few picnic tables. We did not use it but was told they supply the stuff if you choose to build a fire. Only drawback here is the pebble ground covering is not very wheelchair or power chair friendly.
The town was absolutely beautiful and we hope to return in the summer or fall and stay here again. less
