I was driving a car south for my elderly folks and drove from the midwest until I was tired the first day. That was north of Starke. But everyone else apparently had the same idea but got tired sooner as in no room at the inn. So I kept heading south and saw a Best Western in Starke. I swallowed hard and headed in--what a nice surprise. They had 1 smoking room left which I gladly took.
The rooms, or at least this one, have been recently updated. And other than the smoking smell, which I knew about, it was a winner. The carpets, furniture and other appointments were all on par with a Hampton Inn. The shower was very nice. Three items of particular note; the soap had oatmeal in it and I love that texture! Nice move BW. Secondly the towels were nice and relatively thick and I believe there were 4 of them. Second nice touch. And lastly regarding the shower, as many places do, this one had the bowed out shower curtain rod. But a lot of times those things get loose and wobbly. I've only stayed at one other place that took the time to have a higher end hardware that doesn't get loose as easily. So three nice touches!
They had a "complimentary" breakfast but I had a golf game awaiting me in about 5 hours so I skipped it!
Check it out if you're passing through. And fun fact--if you read Elmore Leonard novels it seems like there's always a character or two from the Starke prison which is just down the road. less
