Go here only if desperate
On this very cold night the office was locked. The front desk clerk waved his hand as if to say one moment which turned into several minutes waiting in 30 degree temperature. He had no personality and did not give fast service. He was not familiar with where the room was. Told us to go to the second floor for our first floor room. Infuriating to say the least.

Great customer service, Welcoming staff
Great stay for a good price! We gave our business to this hotel after getting terrible customer service at La Quinta across the street who's staff was rude after confusing my bulldog for a pitbull...staff there was rude and nasty and not welcoming to my dogs. This best western's staff was very pleasant and very welcoming to my fur baby...Luciana checked us in and was very pleasant, and Jeff was also nice and helpful by providing us blankets dropped off at our room. Room was clean and the breakfast was better than I expected! (La Quinta's breads/pastries are always stale). We also appreciated being accommodated on the first floor since I was traveling with a disabled veteran. Thanks for a great stay Best Western!

Family vacation stop
Our stay was great. It was a perfect spot to split our vacation travel in two. Pool was good, breakfast was good, front desk worker was very helpful. We didn't like the smoking stations set up outside the rooms. If someone was smoking or had just finished, the smell leaked into the room as you opened the door.
