No Complaints! Perfect for our purposes.
We come once a year for the Lalilowan Indian Festival, and Best Western was the host hotel this year for dancers, powwow committee, and staff. We were cordially greeted upon arrival, and check-in was a breeze.
The room was perfect for our means, but we wish it had a queen or king sized bed instead of two doubles. The room was clean, well stocked with towels and washcloths, and was comfortable. Initially, I was concerned about the noise level because we were located near a stairwell, the business center, and one of the entry doors, but my fears were unfounded. There was no noise bleed through from the adjacent room, and there was not a lot of extra noise. The room was supplied with an iron that worked, and the ironing board had a clean cover and adequate padding, and ironing the dress for my regalia was a breeze.
Did I mention the bed was comfortable? I slept like a rock, despite it being a double. the linens were clean, and we were able to adjust the room temp to a comfortable sleeping temperature. The mattress was very comfortable, and the pillows were perfect. I usually don't sleep well in hotel beds, but this was an exception.
The pool was not available, but not a deal breaker for me. Possibly for a family with active kids, but I had the feeling that this was a temporary situation. The breakfast room was very nice, with hot and cold breakfast items, and the all-important waffle iron, and a good cereal selection. Plenty of seating in a pleasant, decently appointed room, with staff making sure that it was well supplied during meal hours.
Overall, I could hope for a bigger bed, a little less age on the property, and a tad more bling in the room, but when you are staying for one night, it fit the bill very well. I hope this place will host us again next year. less
