I usually like Best Western but this place was bad smelly and the breakfast was cold and served like it was for dogs. The smell of weed was always there when you entered the main lobby. I could write more but it would take to long

We stayed here last weekend. We found it for 70 dollars plus tax, which makes it great. The hotel is a bit old, but clean, and I think they'are going to recarpet it. The rooms are big, plenty of hot water. The breakfast is pretty good for the price, they have cereal, fresh fruit, yoghurt, donuts, croissants, etc. They even...

As someone who has stayed in this hotel and now lives in the area, let me give you some background on what to expect. Other reviews have the actual hotel covered pretty well, but a few things need to be known about WHERE you're staying. 1. The hotel is in an industrial area. It is NOT a dangerous area by...
