The main thing you want from a one-night stay in a motel room is a comfortable bed, a quiet room, and reasonable cleanliness. In those respects, the Best Western comes out pretty well. For a price of just of 60 dollars, it’s an exceptional value.
Even so, a fastidious traveler might object to some of this Best Western’s downsides. For example,
1. The elliptical exercise machine in the Fitness Room is obviously on its last legs, making a loud racket, and requiring a level of effort that isn't accurately reflected in its display.
2. Although there is a water dispenser in the Fitness Room, there were no cups available.
3. The hallway carpets are “variegated”, but presumably not by factory design; rather, there are innumerable stains up and down the hallways.
4. Hot water in the morning (7:30 or so) is not hot, but lukewarm at best.
I suppose that those four items could count as complaints. Beyond, that there are some observations:
5. The breakfast was pretty standard, offering pre-fabricated omelets, greasy sausage, and biscuits with Sysco-like gravy among the cooked items. Like too many other motels, this one relies heavily on plastic and Styrofoam plates and utensils, thereby adding to the planet’s landfill pollution.
6. The Great Hairdryer Search: Normally, one finds this appliance attached to the bathroom wall, and there were a couple of holes suggesting that one had been there previously. Eventually, we found one in a bag hanging from a hanger in the small closet.
7. The bathmat was severely frayed — OK, it was still usable if unsightly. And the towels were anything but soft, so they had a bit of a bracing sandpaper effect when drying after a shower.
All that notwithstanding, it was actually a positive experience. less
