An old standard - refurbished and still a great place!

I first started staying here when it was the old "Four Points." Now as the Best Western "Premier" Central Hotel and conference center, it continues to live up to its name. I love the great interior courtyard. The pool and exercise equipment is nice. The staff was entirely pleasant and my stay was just fine!

Average stay

Check in was quick and efficient. Hotel is outdated, shows its time. Room was clean. Beds are very uncomfortable and squeaky. It was hard to get good sleep. I don’t think I would return.

Hotel experience was satisfactory. Room was clean. Staff was friendly. Price could have been a little cheaper, but that would be my only complaint.

ok for business not for family

when i got to the room the tables next to the bed were dirty and there were 2 cigarettes partically smoked that were in the bathroom next to the hair dryer I told the front desk and yet nothing was cleaned when i came back 12 hours later still food pieces (chunks of corn and fried chicken) were on the table next to the bed and i saw the cigarettes still there and flushed them myself yuck!! I was here for a 4 day business trip and will be back next year but i doubt i'll stay here and we went to the "irish" restaurant downstairs one night for dinner and were truely disappointed no real irish cuisine food was horrible and the breakfast was aweful NEVER again

Would not ever stay here again

This hotel may look nice in the pictures, but there was much lost in the details. The cleaning staff is terrible, with mold all over the bathroom and caulk missing in many places. My coworker had money stolen out of her SAFE! Unreal. I had a broken tile in my bathroom, several bugs and the noise from the pool is unreal. It's really sad because the location is good, the restaurant is decent and the front desk staff is AMAZING. Too bad the poor maintenence and cleaning make it impossible to stay there.
