Too bad

This hotel changed from a Best Western to The Capitol Inn between when we booked to when we stayed. It was clear that the staff wasn't well trained and there was construction everywhere. The doors to the rooms open to an outside hallway and there was much noise from traffic, other guests, and even staff taking a break in the hallway. Other than being a good price for a hotel downtown only a few blocks from the center, it was disappointing in every other way.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Merchant was absolutely fabulous for a "special dinner" location. Puckett's was great for a casual BBQ and the live music on Wednesday night was excellent and a nice surprise!

yeehaw!

Absolutely outstanding staff who kindly checked us in at 10 a.m. when we arrived after our flight. We thought we'd just be asking for a spot to leave our luggage but without even requesting an early check-in, we were asked if we'd like to have our room then. Everyone on staff was friendly and welcoming. Our room was clean and modern and renovations are underway. Even the contractors were friendly! Hotel name is now Capitol Inn, not Best Western. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Nice Hotel!

Everything was nice other than having to pay an extra $16 for parking, There is nothing but valet. Other than that, no complaints.

Not exciting but worth the price

They've just changed from a Best Western to The Capital Hotel and I see lots of changes in the works. But for us, the hotel was average, walking distance from the fun of the action on Broadway, and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Friendly staff too.

Very Low End Hotel

When booked this was a Best Western. Upon arrival it had changed to The Capital Hotel. Very old/tired hotel that they are "trying" to upgrade but they won't be able to make the rooms bigger or have room doors open to a hallway instead of outdoors, as they are currently.

worked great for us

hotel is still undergoing exterior renovations but the room was great. breakfast exceeded our expectations. staff was very friendly. we were able to check in early when we arrived at 8am which was a welcome surprise. good location for downtown at the right price. would stay again as long as you don't mind some construction going on.
