We use Best Western Motels for most of our trips and had just left the Lone Pine BW Hotel so the comparison was fresh in our memory. Although the room was clean, both our room and our son's room smelled of old smoke. The bedspreads were very dated and gave the whole room the appearance of needing a remodel. The new white comforter with the dark brown foot strip typical of most BW would make the room feel fresh and new. My husband was disappointed that during our 2 day stay, the outside trash bins were never emptied and we had no place to put our trash other than our room since the bins were full. The rooms were very small and although I love craftsmen style furniture, there was not really enough space for the large wardrobe. When we made our reservations, the web said a private beach was included but when we went to the office for our passes, we were informed that there is now a $9 charge per person with a $3 discount to use the beach! We were also made to sign in for the beach towels for the pool and sign in to return the towels to the office. That being said, the breakfast was wonderful. The waiters were fantastic! They were fun to talk with and were great with the kids and the adults. The setting is beautiful and the kids loved the pool. Because we had 8 in our group, the beach would have cost us $48 for the hour. When my husband went back to the office, Paula spoke with him and told him about Nevada Beach which was only a short mile or 2 away and was only $10 per car! We saved $38 and the Beach was accessible for my wheelchair so I was able to photograph and watch my family play in the water. Thank you Paula! less
