“My Favorite Place To Stay in Alpena”
Reviewed 20 July 2013 via mobile

I stayed at the Best Western in Alpena for 2 days last week. It was a great choice and I will definitely go back. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable! Considering the hotel was filled, I was delighted that it was so quiet at bedtime. The continental breakfast was fine also. Pancakes, oatmeal and Maxwell House coffee!! I couldn't have asked for anything more! The staff was also very friendly and helpful-especially about local restaurants, etc. I can't wait to go back in the fall !!

There's not much in Alpena (though I do recommend the Great Lakes Maritime Heritage Center), but it was a good place to break up my trip, so I spent a night here. The staff were friendly, and the room was clean. A little stuffy, but a few minutes with the window open and fan going cleared it up with no problem. The room was a bit unusual, in that it had both an exterior door (to the parking lot) and an interior one. This was great, because it was easy to bring my bags in, but I didn't have to go outside if I want to go to the pool or breakfast room. The place was about half-full, so there was no problem with noise. The pool and hot tub were very clean, and were great after a long day's hiking, and the fitness center had a weight machine in it, which was a nice change from the usual. There are some restaurants right across the street, and plenty more within driving distance. And the room had a fridge, microwave, TV, coffeepot, and all the usual stuff. Breakfast was fine, and the staff were friendly.

Older Property. Rooms have doors to interior and exterior taking up space in an already small room. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast was good including a waffle maker. The staff was friendly and helpful. Across the street from Walmart. The Chinese restaurant across the parking lot was excellent . The hot tub had a musty odor, the seal along the wall allowed water to get behind the wall. The pool was larger than many Best Westerns. It was ok for the rate, $61.00 for the night.

We two couples traveling together usually share a room to keep down costs. Our room was exceptionally spacious compared to most places we typically have stayed. Bed linens were superb, microwave and fridge were great to have, and breakfast in the morning was actually worth having-- much more than just muffins and bagels. My husband who is picky was impressed that there was sausage gravy and biscuits, one of his favorites. Price was only $79.00 which we thought was a great value. Everything positive and NOTHING negative about this place!

Traveling for work just for one night. Front desk staff, Sharon, was very nice visited, and made me feel very welcome. She did seem to recognize a road weary person when she seen one :) I do also have to say the room was very clean - looks like the housekeeping staff pay attention to details. My room had two queens and a lot of other furniture, border line too much to the point of not quite cramped. Exercise room had limited equipment but worked perfectly for me, who was the only one using it. Overall it was comfortable, quiet, and clean. Four to four and a half.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back 117 -120 were very quiet and close to the pool, only draw back in no outside windo...

It's amazing the difference staffing makes at a hotel. The Best Western of Alpena is a nice hotel. Well managed, clean, comfortable bed, good location and reasonably priced -- but their best asset is the outstanding staff that greeted me when I arrived - provided me with directions (and a map with hand added tips) to a nearby site where I was doing a presentation. It's the same staff that arranged to ship some clothing I left behind - including a somewhat valuable antique handbag.

It was wonderful. Clean - good bed - everything I needed -- but again it is the human touch that can turn a good hotel or restaurant into a great hotel or restaurant. They get my vote. I've been staying with a different chain most recently but the staff here is causing me to think Best Western instead of ... well somewhere else.
