My husband and I were on our way north with our RV and the extremely windy weather caused us to find a place to stay and wait for the wind to subside. We found this hotel close to the Interstate with a very large parking lot, perfect for parking our fifth wheel and truck. We ended staying 2 nights. A...

I stay at a lot of best westerns, and this one ranks near the top. From the first experience of calling to check for availability, ease of check in to check out on the morning, all staff was extremely accommodating. Room was clean and bed was comfortable, as expected. The number one highlight? The gal helping out at breakfast. She...

We we did not like this hotel, because we had been in other Best Western, and the quality was different than this. The sofas of the main entrance was duty, and the entrance was unsafe, because the floor was wet.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Glad your truck finally was able to hit the road again as it is not profitable when it is sitting in a shop. We do offer a CDL rate which I believe we were able to give to you. Sincerely, Lori Faught General Manager

Clean and good beds. Only double which was a disappointment. There was no coffeepot or a microwave in the room. The wait service in the attached restaurant was good. Commented on the fact that some of the waitpersons in the restaurant had hair flying all over and not contained. Good food for the value. Good breakfast in the morning is...

Awesome staff and the rooms were very nice. Excellent restaurant attached too. Pool and hot tub were great. Felt like being at home! Recent upgrades to decor were nice too. This is not a new hotel, so there are imperfections, but that was minor compared to everything else. Excellent value!
