We needed a place to stay for a working trip. We picked Best Western Plus because we have had a great stay in the past at another location. We were not disappointed. Chris at the front desk was helpful and accommodating.

The hotel was visually appealing and the free breakfast was decent. When we entered the room it smelled musty, damp, and a bit moldy. It appeared to be clean and we were only staying for one night so we did not complain. Hopefully this is an unusual occurrence.
