The hotel was very nice! The room was clean and a nice place to sleep for the night. We were traveling with our dog and had to find a place that allows pets, they do. Only had two cons; one being that it was a little expensive for us for a one night stay and the other being that the...

Reviewed 4 March 2017 via mobile

I stay at a lot of best westerns, and this one ranks near the top. From the first experience of calling to check for availability, ease of check in to check out on the morning, all staff was extremely accommodating. Room was clean and bed was comfortable, as expected. The number one highlight? The gal helping out at breakfast. She...

We had requested a room with 2 beds because there where 2 adults and 2 children in the room. We got 2 full beds. Worst night sleep ever at a best western. Breakfast was good except the ham had no taste. Must have been boiling it to make ham broth later.

Dear Fred, I am so sorry that you did not get a good night rest. All of our rooms with 2 beds are full xl unless you would be interested in a king bed with sofa sleeper. I have talked to the staff about this to make sure the guest are understanding our bed sizes. No ham broth we would...

The hotel was nice and the staff seemed nice enough. Breakfast was a nightmare. Went to breakfast at 9:00 a.m. and they had run out of food and took 30 minutes to refill. There were so many people waiting to eat again that they ran out right away. Not much variety available for breakfast. The restaurant staff was not very...

Friendly staff, smooth check in process. Nice clean room, comfortable beds. Lots of variety on the breakfast. There is a Bennigan's restaurant located at the hotel. We heard the restaurant was good, but did not eat there.

A bunch of our friends were going to a concert at the Surf Ballroom and we all booked rooms here. Check in was strange, the lady was at the end of her shift I think...not much patience.
