Upon arrival it seemed things would go alright, but after a couple of nights we were ready to leave. The location is definately NOT a "short, ten minute walk to city's center" as we were told and certainly is not safe at night. The parking lot is small and open to the street, so I was uneasy about leaving my vehicle there, as there is no one to watch the parking lot at night (and there is a lot of foot traffic after dark). The receptionist was friendly, but did get a bit huffed trying to do too many things at once, definately shouldnt have to leave the desk for the restaurant or to be a porter. Had dinner at the restaurant and although the food was good, it took an unusual length of time for it to come to the table. What made it even worse was the owners were also having dinner and drinks with friends, having a great time and getting their dinner before ours, even though we had been waiting! That was a disappointment. As far as cleanliness, the stairs to our room were very dirty and cobwebs in about every corner, our bathroom was very hairy...but I took care of that myself, why bother the housekeeping when they didnt do it in the first place? Maybe my standards are too high. All in all I am not too sure how this place became a Best Western...maybe BW should do random inspections.
