"Actually a Really nice stay."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I had not stayed at a Best Western in a thousand years and was not expecting the great looking room and amazing customer services.

17-Jul-2021 Verified Review, stayed from Mon Jul 12 to Thu Jul 15 2021 at a $82.32 average nightly rate.
"Better than most."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Loved the comfy bed and was delighted to find this BW was less expensive than the one down the road in Ft Smith. The only downside was really no big deal at all, a broken ice machine. Otherwise a great stay!
