Pretty good but definitely one of the more run down and sketchier Best Westerns I've been to; probably wouldn't stay alone.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
There was nothing in particular that I liked. A very highly disliked the customer service. There were hidden fees and no staffing in the lobby in the morning. I was charged $100 which was put on hold in case something happened to the room. I was told I would get that $100 back when I checked out. When I finally checked out in the morning they told me 3 to 7 business days. When I went to check in they would not accept my AARP. The continental breakfast was not ready in the morning when it was supposed to be. I will never stay here again. I recommend others do the same.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
I was checked in 2 visible used rooms. Then given a spic and span bottle to clean the affected areas. I reported this to the manager, nothing happened. They let the most customer PR person change my room and move my stuff to a new clean room--good. The attendant in question was still there offering dirty rooms to paid customer and clean rooms to her unpaid associates. I plan not to use this undiverse, the best Western, anymore.
