Dr. Appt.

I like staying here because of the bed! It is not too hard like most hotels. The price is not always the best, but because of the bed, I get it when I can.

Good Basics

Free breakfast was typical Best Western...i.e. SLIGHTLY above average. Staff was very cordial. Only downside for those driving their car (or a rental) in the winter...not enough electric plug-ins to plug your car in overnight. Get there late, your car will be unplugged..Could be a problem in the morning for you when it's really cold (below - 10) in the mornings. Rooms and building very nice and well kept.

Last road trip for the summer

I went up with friends for the weekend, the hotel is gorgeous! We were all very excited to stay here. Rooms are very welcoming and big! But I have to say they have poor management, on several occasions we had many problems with them.

Great hotel, but staff needs some lessons in Customer Service

The hotel itself is great. Brand new. Rooms are very clean, well decorated, high ceilings, comfortable bed. I was very disappointed with the staff. The heater would not shut off in my room and was up to 85 degrees and they said there were no other rooms and they couldn't do anything about it until the maintenance person arrived at 0800. It was a miserable night's lack of sleep. I informed the manager, and she said "sorry", but a lot more should have been done about that.
