Very nice motel, rooms were clean. Staff was friendly and very courteous and the motel was conveniently located along interstate, Adventureland and Prarie Meadows Casino. Has a heated swimming pool. The breakfast was ok. Pool has no bathroom so walk down a cold hallway to pee right next to lobby or pee in the pool. (Just kidding). It was a...

We arrived late, feeling very tired, and were greeted by a warm and exceptionally helpful woman at the front desk. She quickly got us into a quiet, comfortable room where we slept well. We were off again after a breakfast where the offerings included pancakes, biscuits and gravy, eggs, sausages, yogurt, cereals including oatmeal with toppings), various breads and rolls,...

Our experience was fantastic! The staff was helpful and wanted to make sure our stay was great. The bedrooms were clean and the beds were comfy. The staff offered to keep the pool open late for us and the breakfast was great!!

Not sure why this Best Western has a "Plus" designation? Unless it is for the great employees? The building is old and very small. Beds were OK. Bathroom was newer and clean. Provided popcorn and fresh-made cookies to guests - although they were out of the cookies one night we were staying. The front desk employees were very helpful, and...

I didn't choose this hotel, so I was a bit worried (I tend to research, research, research and more research on Tripadvisor). It surprisingly turned out to be a decent place to rest my head. The lower ceilings indicated an older building, but it was surprisingly well maintained. The room was incredibly quiet and the selection of channels was plentiful....
