worst best western

ive stayed at other best westerns, and this by far is the worst. The staff was quite rude, spa was closed for maintenence, vending machines broken, horrible location, and breakfast was way undercooked.

An Okay Experience

Room was clean and good-sized. The location was a bit iffy and the types of people staying in the hotel were a bit rough to say the least. Breakfast was not good - the food was sub-par to your usual continental breakfast so I abstained, and then I saw flies floating around the food. I didn't feel as safe as I would have liked and the back door which was "exit only" was propped open 90% of the time by the smokers even when no one was there.

Bear, De

Had an enjoyable time. Room was recently refreshed with paint and furnishings, which were nicer than some older Best Westerns. The staff was very helpful and kind at all times. There were two negatives that I thought needed to be mentioned. The first is there is not a good entrance from the North-bound lanes of Pulaski highway so you have to go a roundabout way to get to the hotel if coming from the South. Secondly, there are some VERY VERY bright lights in the parking lot right in front of the room windows. This is all well and good if the drapes could be pulled together, but they can't. There was no way to block out the light so you're trying to sleep and these bright lights are shining right in your face. I don't know if the rooms on the north side were as bad. The see-through thin white drapes could be pulled together but the ones that block light can't be. I even tried using safety pins to stick up a sheet, but then it covered the A/C and the room would get hot. If they took care of this simple issue, which I imagine would mean replacing drapes in all rooms, there would be no complaints at all.
