Cedar Park, Texas
Reviewed 18 September 2016

The location of this hotel made a convenient overnight stopping place for our trip to Minneapolis, and it was a easy trip the next day to travel onto Minneapolis. From the off-route location of this hotel is was quite easy for us to return to our northern travel route the next morning on I-35.

Thank you for your great review. I am glad you like our location, we are indeed located at the crossroads of America, where interstates 35 and 80 meet so whether you are traveling New York to San Francisco or as in your case from Minneapolis to all points South, you drive right by our front door. Happy travels and we...

The room was very nice. We had 2 queen rooms, a table with 2 chairs, 2 luggage racks and plenty of space to put your other stuff. The bathroom was a little small but the shower was fine. The breakfast was not up to par. The eggs and bacon (very thin rounds) would make a poor copy of an Egg...

Thank you very much for your review. As a small Limited Service hotel we only have the limited breakfast area and choices. While it would be nice to be able to offer steak and eggs served to order we neither have the space nor ability to deliver, thus necessitating a limited self serve menu model. That requires a bit of...

Nice setting and decor. Quiet area. Only complaint is the breakfast. Not enough seating area, out of coffee and oatmeal. Canned fruit. Orange juice is good. Eggs and biscuits not hot. Internet access is good, bedding comfortable.

Thank you for your review. With a limited service model and its value to the consumer we are constrained by space limitations and while we meet and exceed all seating requirements for our number of rooms it does require patience on the part of our guests to wait till others are done. On the other hand the popularity of our...

Traveled quite a distance to get to area for an expo in the area so we were quite pleased that the staff was friendly, and very accommodating.

My stay, at Best Western Inn & Suites in Clive, IA, was outstanding. Accomodations were clean, comfortable and attractive, as well as generous (was upgraded to suite from standard since I am Platinum member). Great value in cost also. Will definitely stay here again.

Thanks for your great review and thanks again for being a Rewards member. You are a perfect example how platinum membership in our loyalty club pays off not only in accumulating points for free rooms and other goodies but also in frequent upgrades to suites. We gladly do that as there is no more welcome surprise for a Rewards member...

Marysville, Ohio
Reviewed 8 September 2016 via mobile

Overall good experience. Front desk staff very pleasant and efficient. Room was clean, beds were great and it was VERY quiet. Expandable arm mirror was a nice touch. There was no WiFi while we were there and the chairs at the table were hard, not too comfy. Didn't take time for breakfast in the AM, but area was very small.

Thank you very much for your review. I am glad you like our little make up mirrors, they are appreciated by the ladies and frequently mentioned to the staff. I am sorry for the temporary outage but we fell victim to a cut line that took the whole neighborhood out for about four hours. The line is all patched and...

Thank you very much for your review. I am sorry that you had to witness a bit of our "back of the house" drama in the lobby. As any organization based on people we are also subject to tempers, drama and unprofessional behavior. I am sorry that we were not able to control our employee's outburst and you had to...

Good Service and a Friendly staff. Offered a Good Breakfast with glassware as the dinning utensils. The Hotel was clean and it had a good atmosphere. It also has an easy access to HWY 35. Plus there was a QT gas station and a Cracker Barrel restaurant within two blocks. We will be staying there when we return.

I see you are yet another fan of our Cracker Barrel restaurant nearby. The best time of the year to enjoy it is on a frosty evening, when you walk the quarter mile there and enjoy the ambiance of the real fireplace with its warmth and crackling logs, that makes for an unbeatable dining experience. Thank you for the kind...

NOT A BABY/TODDLER FRIENDLY HOTEL!!! They did not have a crib or high chair. We stayed at several Best Western Hotels on our trip and this was the only one that couldnt accomadate our 2 year old. We thought that all BW have similar standard but we were wrong.

Dear Parent. I am sorry for not meeting your expectations, but in the case of baby gear there are no standards and mandatory equipment such as ADA, and parents are encouraged to check about availability of such equipment upon making the reservation. We certainly welcome families with babies in our hotel but do not claim to provide baby equipment and...
