I was very surprised at this being a Best Western. Totally changed my perception of this chain. The in-hotel restaurant, O’Reily’s offered take out, which we took advantage of for breakfast and WOW. Great portions for the price. Nice, quiet room.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness

We stayed in a pet friendly room that really smelled like a bunch of dogs died in the room. They also charged us an extra $30 as a pet fee for our cat. This hotel had less than 1 % occupancy due to the corona virus epidemic. They could of at least put us in a nicer room. Our cat is very well behaved and certainly does not smell like a wet dog.
