Great stay

15/07/2019 Branden B,

This was a pleasant experience for us. Everything was great. We had our dog with us for his first road trip and he was cool with everything. The gym was clean and equipment was very good. Our room was... more

Great place for families passing through

We were in the process of moving from Virginia to Arizona as a family. We were trying to find a hotel that was affordable but also not completely nasty. Best Western exceeded our expectations. The roo... more

Thank you for your comments. Glad you liked our beds with free full hot breakfast. Apologies for the water spilled on carpet and bad smell from bathroom. Rest assured these have been put to maintenance - did you report these to the front desk staff? We could have allocated another room. See you next time!

Wrong choice for us

18/06/2019 OBXGirl9832, Waco, Texas

I hate to give negative reviews for anyone, and I feel that our choice to stay here was partly my fault. Because the hotel is older and not equipped with an elevator, they have made the lower floor fo... more

Thank you for completing the survey regarding your recent stay at our property. On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologize for not exceeding your expectations. Elevators were not required when this building was built. All ADA rooms are located downstairs as you may appreciate. There is a vanity shelf in the bathroom long enough for your personal toiletries. Apologies for the spider under your pillow. Your comments are noted about the toilet, sink and clothes hanger - we will try to get it fixed on our next renovations.

An average stay

On our way home, I was trying to find a hotel to stay at in the Fort Smith area. Van Buren is the only place just inside the state line that offers hotels just off the interstate. On our way, I did so... more

Thank you for your survey. The rate you saw online was 7-day advance purchase and non-cancellable. You were charged correctly the rate for walk-in guests. Night light of the hair dryer does flicker and gives light at night if you need to use the bathroom without waking other occupant5s of your room. Front desk staff may be helping other guests when you came to the front desk to check-out or she may be using the bathroom. We do not know hindsight why she was not there. Coffee is not Folgers but Arabica or Columbian coffee as required by our franchise. You cannot expect a refund for breakfast if you do not avail of this amenity. We serve a full hot breakfast every morning. You did get a good night rest which is more important than trivial matters you have mentioned. See you next time!
