Older property, needs some updating

This is an older hotel with noticable wear and tear. The breakfast area is extremely cramped and food selection is lacking. It was a quiet clean room which is about what you expect in a BW Plus hotel. Others we've stayed at really had the "wow" factor, but then again, they were new.

not so great

We did enjoy the WiFi accessibility, breakfast, and pool. And the location was convenient and easy to find. However, we had previously booked a king suite and upon arrival, it had already been occupied. We instead had to settle for a queen room and were not accommodated in any fashion.

Very disappointed

Hello, This was not the first time I have stayed at the best western plus in marion, but it may be the last!! Upon arrival we noticed pool and hot tub closed, which is where my sister planned to hang out whole I attended personal business Friday and Saturday in marion. So she sat in hotel room for over 5 hours bored I felt awful and the fact the hotel staff was not apologetic or accommodating really disappointing

not too bad over all

Stayed there during a businesses trip, good location, the room was very clean and tidy but you know, nothing super fancy. The have hot breakfast, this was below average in terms of variety and quality. You also can borrow a DVD to watch your stay and their collection is actually not bad. Overall, not bad for the price

No compliants

I found this room to offer more amenities than the Hampton Inn for about half the cost. The rooms need to be updated a bit, but they are comfortable and clean. The staff was pleasant. The hotel was quiet although I know they had many reservations. I would stay there again.

Got in at 10pm out at noon next day. For a one night only stay it was perfect location in between where I needed to be. No hassles and a clean room.
