“I didn't hear a peep!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

I stayed here this summer. My room was very clean and quiet and cool! I was glad about the cool part because it was very hot outside. The beds were very comfortable and the room's decor was cheery. When I asked for extra pillows the staff were quick to deliver them to my room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. When I needed suggestions for places to eat at, I was given many great ideas. Really enjoyed the pool and hot tub.

My wife and I have stayed here no less than 6 times and the staff here is always very pleasant and professional. The hotel is very nicely landscaped, pool and Jacuzzi are always very clean. Rooms are nice size and the hotel is very nicely located with many Restaurants nearby and easy on/off for interstate 80

I asked for a quiet room and the clerk said I was in a section of the motel that was the quietest because it did not face the freeway. But it was very noisy, the sounds of freeway traffic, especially trucks, continually interrupted my sleep for the entire night.

I appreciate your taking the time to complete one of these surveys and I apologize for any inconvenience. Careful attention was paid to the control of transfer of sound between floors and adjacent rooms by the installation of concrete flooring on the second level and the use of a double set of studs which are off set to minimize the transmission of sound. We are close to the freeway so there is always going to be traffic, but our Double Queen Building that is set the farthest back on the property is also buffered by the building directly in front of it is probably what you should request but they are fewer in quantity and also a higher price. We do have double paned windows on the front of the rooms and have been considering putting double pane also in our bathrooms to
improve on the diminishing of the traffic noises

This Best Western is a gem. We spent three nights while in town for a family wedding. The people working there were all extremely friendly and helpful. The room itself was clean and quiet, with a very comfortable bed. The daily breakfast was good, and the breakfast room is very pleasant. Perhaps the most unexpected thing we found was the beautiful landscaping. The flower beds were magnificent! This hotel is warm and welcoming, and we hope to return in the future.

My husband and I have stayed at this Best Western 2 years in a row now, over Labor Day Weekend...both stays have exceeded our expectations. Close to Joe Carribe, grocery stores and highway 80...we love staying here! The breakfast is thoughtfully presented and the staff in the office really work hard to make sure that you are truly comfortable.

It was a nice place to stay- we felt safe & comfortable. The room was clean and nicely decorated. The bed was comfy! The breakfast hours were great and the food was good. The pool and hot tub were clean and the water temperature for both was good. The location was pretty good- it was easy to get to everything since it was right off of I-80 but then the noise from the road was loud when we sat by the pool but not too bad in the room itself.

I am so glad to read that you found our beds comfortable and enjoyed our pool and hot tub when you stayed with us. We have our breakfast hours from 5:30 A.M. until 9:30 to accommodate our guests that want to get going early and also offer "take with pasteries" and snacks for those that really need to continue on their way quickly.
