Looking online i was shocked to find casino hotel prices at the same or lower than this listing, however, I soon realized that the casino hotels also tacked on a "resort fee" between $15 and $30 (sometimes for amenities you shouldn't have to pay for: wifi, pool, excercise room.) So I was very happy to book this hotel at a reasonable price.
Overall it was a pleasant experience: the check in at front desk wasn't necessarily hospitable but was efficient (and if i have to choose between the two I'm fine with the later), the room was a nice quiet location on the first floor, the breakfast was exactly what we've come to expect from "warm continental" and was consistently maintained throughout the breakfast serving. The bathtub was huge, so if you have kids or decide to take a nice soaking bath you won't feel like a beached whale. The grounds, facilities and decor were well maintained and looked fresh and up to date.
Two things probably deserve attention: the microfridge was unpluged when we got into the room (this is the second Best Western I have found this in so I'm not sure if it is a power saving effort or if it gets unplugged for housekeeping) but it required us to move the credenza that houses the chest of drawers, microfridge, microwave, and tv just to plug it in (not an easy feat- so if you use this make sure you check it before placing anything inside, you might have to enlist help moving it), the second item was that the fitted sheet seemed too small for the king sized bed and kept springing up from the corners and enveloping us during the night. This gave us two options: getting out of bed several times to redress the bed or forget it and sleep partially on the sheet and partially on the mattress cover. Which in itself is a small grievance until you see my picture of the mattress cover...
Still, these were minor enough not to discourage me from rating it 4...I'd stay here again! less
