Very nice hotel. The staff were very friendly, room was clean, and pool area was really nice. Breakfast was your typical hotel style breakfast. The food was restocked and plenty of items to choose from. I would recommend this hotel. There was some noise from the pool, but not too much. Parking was not an issue and there were plenty...

Front desk staff friendly and efficient. Beds were nice and firm room was very clean. Indoor pool that closes at 9pm so if you are planning to sleep before then you might have to rethink that. After closing quiet returns promptly. Morning breakfast was the usual hotel servings. Overall a good stay.

We were at the Best Western just for an overnight stay. The hotel has the standard fair, but also has a full size leather couch. We stayed in a king room. It was very comfortable, and while it seemed there were not too many guests we enjoyed the quiet atmosphere. The main center section of the hotel has a pool....

Stayed one night while traveling. The staff was friendly and informative. They recommended an excellent Mediterranean restaurant. Breakfast was average and the bed was OK. I will stay there again when traveling in the area.

My husband & I stayed one night for our anniversary and we were very pleased with our room and the hotel. It is 2 blocks from main street, very easy walking distance. Main street is fun and a couple shops to be sure to visit are The Brick Oven for great pizza, Java Jive for delicious coffee, Mississippi Marketplace was...

I have stayed at this Best Western on many occasions.All of my previous stays have been just fine. However, this past stay was a nightmare. I was traveling alone with my three children and stopped here for the night as I have done many times before. I arrived just after midnight. I awoke at 4AM to a crying 11 year...
