I have stayed here a couple of times lately and while it is on the expensive end for BW, it is much less expensive than the other hotel in the area. Rooms are clean and fresh. Internet is good, and the showers are full sized. To cinch the deal, Ruffs Sports Bar is just down the hall!

Hotel is categorized as 3 star. I found it pleasant but lacking in cleanliness. Sheets needed to be replaced, not just cleaned. The internet is useless. Otherwise, they have nice facilities and good food, big pool.

Thank you for your feedback John H. As I mentioned in my direct response to your hotel survey, we are so sorry that you had such a worn set of sheets. We typically pull sheets (and Terry) when they get worn or have stains that won't come out and we donate them. In your case, it appears we missed your...

Everything was perfect! It's hard to find excellent customer service these days, but was pleasantly surprised to find it at the Best Western Plus. I will recommend the Best Western Plus to others who are in need of a conference venue.

If you want the most comfortable no b.s. place on Willmar this is it. Everything is updated and clean. Beds are very comfortable. Have good business center/Internet. The bar and restaurant attached to hotel is the best in Willmar. Those seeking 24 hour food there is a Casey's directly across the street.

Really enjoyed our stay here. Excellent staff, including Samantha at the front desk. Comfy room, nice breakfast. Bonus - you can walk right into the Willmar Conference Center. A couple of things that could make stay even better - I like firmer pillows and a full-length mirror in the room would be great.

Everything is good about this hotel except they must let pets stay there. I came home with at least 20 flea bites on me. Keep your luggage off the floor if you stay there and if you get room 239 ask to be moved to a room that has never had pets.

We had our pest control service inspect the room (after we did) and have found no evidence of any kind of insect/bug/or pest.
