There was no breakfast, probably due to COVID. And, the vending machines were on two different floors. It would be convenient to have them together! Other than this, service was excellent, rooms were clean and bed was very comfortable!

Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
I feel the ratings and reviews for this facility are over rated. We were only staying 1 night on a quick trip so it served it's purpose for a place to sleep but we were overall disappointed in the hotel. Initial impression on walking inside on a very sunny day we were taken back how dark the lobby and hallways were. My kids were joking it was haunted because it was dark and cold. My kids we are very excited to be able to swim and use the hot tub but we ended up only staying on the pool area for about 10 minutes. the hot tub water was cold and the pool was dirty. I always try to pick a place with a breakfast included but they were not offering the advertised breakfast. There was coffee and a brown paper bag with a water bottle, mini muffin, apple and granola bar at check out. My daughter has a nut allergy and is unable to eat the muffin or granola bar because most pre packaged items are produced in facilities that handle tree nuts. We ended up going to Whataburger for breakfast instead. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable so we had a good night sleep which is all we needed the room for in the first place. The room was quiet and had a mini fridge. Just disappointed with the "extras" we are used to from Best Western.
