Spent one night here on our way back from New Orleans to Indy. Rooms were super clean and quiet. Great black out curtains insured a great sleep. Beds were comfortable and nice clean bathrooms. Breakfast was great...not just continental but full service offerings that were quality. Will definitely make this one of our regular road trip stops.

We stopped here for the night on the way to Florida. It was very clean and the staff was very friendly. It will be my go to hotel from now on when we are road tripping to Florida. The free breakfast was also much better than most. Thanks again!

Found this hotel on our way driving from Cleveland to Metairie, Louisiana. It was great! Comfortable, affordable, and friendly. So pleased with Best Western that we joined their Loyalty Program and then stayed at Best Westerns in Metairie, LA and Bowling Green, KY. Fast internet, good breakfast, and very helpful staff.
