“Given Smoking Room, Had requested Non Smoking”
Reviewed 10 March 2008

We arrived at the hotel around 6:00 PM to find the parking lot filled with Police and Flashing Blue Lights. The local police had hunted down a man who had shot a policeman and trapped and shot him in or very near to the Hotel parking lot.

We were apprehensive about staying there, but we were in a hurry to attend an event at our daughters college, so we got our room key and left.

We arrived back at the hotel later that night ,very late ,and very tired and went straight to the room. After getting ready for bed we discovered that we had been placed in a smoking room. We had requested non-smoking on our reservation.

I asked about it the next morning and was told it was my fault because I had requested smoking, which I had NOT!!!

Called Best Western Corporate to complain and was referred back to the local motel management. I was not offered any explanation or compensation for having been given the wrong room.

The room was clean, bed was OK, bathroom was very small and showing age. If at all possible, I would never stay there again.

Stayed February 2008

I was pleasantly surprised as this hotel is either new or freshly renovated. Very clean, spacious room. Convenient location close to shopping, restaurants, drug stores, etc. Free, no-hassle Wi-fi. Very nice for an economy hotel.
