clean and comfortable

Arrived to find a VERY clean and comfortable room. The breakfast was GREAT! First chain hotel I have come across that offers breakfast sandwiches. Overall very appealing. Only negative was our door handle fell off in our room and it took a few minutes to get it back on enough to open the door to get out of the room.

Probably one of the best Best Western of the franchise.

Tho this is an older property, it has been beautifully renovated and updated. The only critique I have it all is the fact that they do not have an elevator. They have taken the trouble to upgrade all the toiletries, the linen, and the breakfast, above the usual best Western fare. This is an immaculately clean hotel, in a great location, also a great value. It is actually far superior to a more upscale hotel at the same next or location.

Clean room, great price

Clean room, comfortable beds, close to any restaurant you could want. Breakfast was included and featured make-your-own waffles, pastries, fruits and cereals. The rooms have external doors and small bathrooms, but for the price, this was nice place to stay.

Good value in the area

Clean friendly service! Breakfast was nice. We stayed in January so pool was not available. Good basic hotel - included easy to access WIfi. No restaurant or lounge so you must travel if you want a cocktail or food other than breakfast.

Not going to return

The room was clean but old school with a very small bathroom. The main reason why I would not return was the breakfast. The breakfast sandwiches were terrible!

Great Weekend Stay

Check-in and check-out were both a breeze. The room looked recently updated, with your standard wear and tear of a 3-star hotel. However, for the price, you can't beat it. We never tried the breakfast, but it looked decent. If I had to go back to Hickory, I would definitely consider this because of the location, staff friendliness, and price for the room.
