“Lovely Pool on a Hot Day”
Reviewed 13 January 2012

A large motel (over 200 rooms - many ground level), the Best Western Stevens could offer a lot.

We had a very large room but there was not enough furniture (lack of seating choices). It was very pleasant, though, sitting outside in the early evening with our nightly drink. None of the ice machines on the property worked and I had to go into the bar to get some ice. Staff was friendly at the front desk but had insufficient training to handle room payment through a Best Western Travel Card.

The nicest part of the stay was the lovely pool area -- refreshing on a hot day and a reason to return to the Best Western Stevens.

I stayed at this property in November and again in December. The room we had the first time was decent and comfortable. The second room is old with thin walls I can hear the tv through from next door. The sink in the bathroom is so low it's ridiculous. The hotel is decent for the price but the room location on the property makes a huge difference ... They're not all the same.

The price was a little high but the room was adequate. We were really disappointed in the breakfast. The bacon was overcooked and barely edible. The pancakes were at best lukewarm. I had to ask the waitress twice for tea.

We picked this motel based on reviews and it met our expectations.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The room spacious and it was nice to pull right up in front of our door. Cleanliness was ok. We could tell that the staff just did a quick wipe down (as in we could see the white-ish wipe lines on the bedside table/desk), the beds looked a little rumpled and there was an empty syro-foam cup in the bathroom. The room included a dorm fridge/freezer and this was nice. Free wi-fi was great (especially because my phone was having a hard time getting reception here).

The beds were comfortable (we bring our own pillows so I can't comment on those). We could hear the trucks pulling in/out but we were just sleeping here one night and left early. Breakfast was ok, but not great. I was wishing they had a little more heathy choices, but it wasn't bad. Really, it was probably better than many motels.

Room Tip: maybe a room toward the back would be best. If they say they are sold out online, call the desk - th...
