Overall Score2.0/ 5
Our suite didn?t have a working toilet, so they opened up the room across because it was a weekend. Room across toilet worked, but shower was molded, water was brown, brown and black mildew throughout the shower. Pretty gross. We didn?t receive any discount on the room we originally booked.

"Nice, breakfast could be better."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Hotel accommodations were nice, room was freezing when I checked in, thermostat was turned down to 60 degrees. It would be nice if the breakfast provided was a bit more diet friendly with regular /steel cut oatmeal(all oatmeal options were high in sugar and carbs). All cereal was sugar loaded cereal as well. Some other options that are diabetic friendly would be nice. Desk clerk upon check in was very nice.

"Average"
Overall Score3.0/ 5

"Just one night."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
We were in town for a wedding for one night. The pool was closed due to nobody being able to clean it. The ice machine was broken. The check in clerk was taking a call on her cell phone during check in telling someone that the pool was closed due to needing to be cleaned. The beds were extra firm. two little kids were sleeping in the lobby when we returned from the wedding around 9:30. One was covered up with a curtain. Probably won't be in the area again. Wouldn't recommend. Other family members reported bugs in their rooms.

"Ants, ticks and bugs."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in terms of cleanliness. The staff was wonderful and nice, but there were ants in our bed, on our floor, in our bathroom. We spotted several ticks and we now realize there were bugs in there as well. We will never stay at this property ever again.

"Hotelplanner.com is a rip off."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
You think your calling Best Western reservations operator, but it?s not the BW, it?s hotelplanner.com/rip off and they charge you a crazy $17.85 fee to book the room for you.

"A Place To Stay When You Have To Be Away!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I had to stay a week for work. The breakfasts were the same every other day. And every other day they were good. I asked for something to be fixed in the room and bathroom, regular maintenance stuff. Only half got fixed. When you look on the amenities page on their website, the pictures are not true. There are no weights or sit-up bench.
