I am currently checked in to room 120. The TV remote had dead batteries, so we had to go to the front desk to get new ones. There are No kleenex in the container box, The refrigerator has'nt been cleaned out from the previous guest. No light bulb in the bedside lamp. There is no coffee pot in the coffee maker. There is a used coffee filter on the coffee shelf from the last guest. With Covid precautions, seems like the room would be extra clean, disappointed in this motel. We stay here each year, but this year, we paid the higher price of $129 plus tax. We are going to look elsewhere from here on out and we are Best Western Rewards members. The last time we stayed here, we were in room 121 and had plumbing problems. That's enough aggravation while on a vacation, would'nt you say?

Customer service was the worst we've ever experienced. My fiance was staying at this hotel for a traveling crisis nurse assignment for COVID. Instead of being treated with a courteous demeanor, the Hotel lobby representative was rude to him and refused to correct their mistake of charging him more for the room than was agreed to. We were told by Best Western Corporate and I verified with them directly at the actual hotel location when making the reservation that they would honor the Best Western Rewards Rate and upon checking out, they would not honor it after all. I had dealt with the hotel arrangements and payment, my fiance wasn't involved with that at all, so he didn't notice the discrepancy until he verified it with me after they made him sign something. Again, with all that said I even explained the situation to the manager and got no where. She wasn't nearly as rude as the initial lobby representative but she was a runner up. Worst customer service ever. You would think they would be grateful he was there to help their community anyway! As an added bonus the room looked like it had been skimmed by cleaners. Probably didn't have a serious cleaning in months. Mold in the bathrooms, the drapes had nasty dirt and who knows what else all over them (while the air from the a/c unit blew through them and spread the nastiness into the air), mattresses had springs poking our backs and feet stuck to the dirty floors when we took our shoes off. It was a real joy staying there!

Before my arrival i was told they were taking us to holiday in because this location was closed. No communication what so ever. When I arrived at holiday inn no reservation at all. So went to best western oh they had it but decided not to tell anyone it is back open. the room smelled terrible like mildew.. The bathroom wall and ceiling had mildew. Guest smoking weed in parking lot when we walk by with children. I would never stay here again it is a bad choice. Look elsewhere

The room was just filthy, disgustingly dirty to say the least, mold in the bathroom, sticky stuff on desk, bed side table. In such a critical time we are living in with the Corona Virus problem there is no reason to take a chance with a place that does not practice even the very basic hygiene. Do not stay there, there are better places in town.
