I stayed at this hotel a couple of years ago, prior to it becoming a Best Western and its renovation. The place looks great, very modern and clean. It was a very relaxing stay. Bed was very comfortable.

This Best Western has been completely renovated. The staff was helpful and pleasant. Rooms were clean and comfortable. We appreciated the hotel's location and enjoyed going downtown for entertainment. Belleayre was only 40 minutes away and the drive there was very enjoyable. Unbeatable rate for the amount of services and comfort. We will be back.

Nice hotel, and when you take the options in the area into consideration it is very nice. Indoor pool, hot tub, and the free breakfast is solid. The restaurant/bar makes a nice drink as well. Very comfortable bed and friendly staff. The closest hotel over 3 stars that I was able to find to Hunter Mountain.
