2/5 Poor

Traveled with family
Expedia charged me for a 'confirmed' booking into this hotel, but the hotel called and said they were full and could NOT provide me a reservation. I had to call Expedia - took 3 hours to get thru - to get my refund.

1/5 Terrible

Traveled with family and small children, Business traveler
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I called and explained to them that I needed a hotel with a pool and asked if their pool had any restrictions, which they informed me that it didn't. We get there to check in after being at the softball field all day and they told us the pool sign up sheet was full and we wouldn't be able to swim, after the took my credit card and used it. They refused to give me a refund even though we left and stayed at a different hotel. Then they called and informed me I would have to go through Expedia if I wanted a refund. Will never stay at another Best Western anywhere because of this!

5/5 Excellent

Traveled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Clean establishment, easy to find and not too far from the highway, great value for the money. I can't say much more because we arrived late at night and left first thing in the morning, but the room had everything you need and the staff was polite and friendly.

3/5 Okay

Traveled with partner, Traveled with family
Everything about this hotel was highly average. Nothing really bad or concerning, but also nothing glowing or anything that exceeded expectations. We had to drive miles away to get something to eat when we arrived, as an adjacent Denny's was not operating. Breakfast was dictated by Covid, so things were handed to us and choices were limited. Staff was fine, but no one stood out. At one point, the tornado sirens went off, and when we called the Front Desk to ask about a shelter, the staff person said she couldn't even hear it. She had zero sense of urgency, and maybe she didn't quite appreciate when someone is hundreds of miles from the familiarity of their homes, just how important it was to alleviate anxiety and offer a reassuring up-to-date weather report.

4/5 Good

Traveled with family and small children
Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
It was a pretty nice hotel overall. Our first room smelled like smoke but the staff was good about giving us a different one. The room didn’t feel as clean as I hoped..a bit of hair on the sink and things like that.
