HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We were on the road and having problems with the computer systems to get our room booked. Finally Best Western Rewards had us directly connected with the hotel and we got a reservation. When we got there they offered upgrade and it was on the second floor so we declined. Can't imagine the upgrade as the room we had was...

I stayed here one night for 170$ including tax with a AAA discount. I had a good experience with best western before and assumed they have the same amenities. Wished I had checked online first instead of calling to book. Sure the furniture was beautiful with solid wood furniture and a fancy Keurig coffee machine. But I thought the high...

We enjoyed our stay at the Best Western. We had no complaints. Staff was pleasant and the room was very clean. We did eat at one of the Best Westerns that offered buffet breakfast and it was very good.

Since we wanted to spend a full day at Zion National Park, we stayed at this hotel, which is a 15-minute beautiful drive from the East Entrance. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The room was big and comfortable. The hotel restaurant was good. If you pay attention to design -- the furniture and decoration are all based on...

We stayed here for 4 nights to go to Zion and Bryce National Parks. It is on the east side of the park, which means you have to drive through the park to be able to park for Zion park shuttle but it is a very scenic drive with good stops along the way for hikes and photo opportunities. The...

What can one say except that we were truly satisfied with Best Western as usual. Looking forward to our next trip to book our stay with Best Western. The comfort of the beds is something that must be mentioned.

We enjoyed staying here--it was a great location between Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon. We spent two nights here. Our first floor room had direct access to the hot tub, which felt great after hiking during the day--used it both nights. No breakfast and a little pricey, but still a good place to stay.

The hotel room was large and designed very well for privacy in the sink area and bathroom. The beds were very comfortable with a variety of pillow softness/hardness. The table was good for using the computer, but the chairs were not computer chairs, so they weren't high enough for me. Internet was spotty at times. The staff were very helpful...

I really liked this hotel for many reasons: When we checked in, our lady gave us a lot of information on Zion. She also told us about the rewards system of Best Western. The room was spotless and attractive with natural wood furnishings. It had a large television. It had a Keurig (although no creamer or sweetener). AND it had...
