From the outside, there is nothing about this hotel that screams stay here. However, on the inside, it is very well maintained and their staff wants you to have a great stay. This is a very clean hotel. The staff is extremely pleasant and their free breakfast is outstanding - serving fresh waffles, eggs and fresh baked scones. The hotel...

We have stayed here several times while visiting my dad. Staff is friendly, rooms are clean, and our kids enjoy the indoor pool. Also, the breakfast is quite nice and included an oatmeal bar that my husband remarked about (which means it was impressive!) Our only problem this particular visit was the thin walls. We were at the end of...

Stayed for four nights at this Best Western Plus location. The reception staff was great, and they even checked on the room to see everything was all right, so it made me feel special, which makes a great stay I suppose. Just about everything was above average and pleasant: the hot breakfast offered variety of carbs, drinks and yogurts, a...

We were in town for my mother's memorial service and several of our family members from out of state stayed here, all arriving on different dates and times. We were constantly gathering in the lobby area to meet and the staff was so patient and pleasant. Exactly what we all needed during such a sad time. Great staff! Wonderful property!...
