“Older hotel that has been updated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

Clean, upgraded motel that has been around for a long time, and shows some wear in tear, with low budget patches and fixes everywhere. But then again I am a building inspector, and see many imperfections that many would miss. Like our room 108 has a sloped floor against the window in the desk area, looks like it was cheaper to box in the old patio area to increase the size of the room (which had a lot of space), but it was kind of funny to look at the furniture at that end and see the table leaning from one end to the other. They should have spent another $100 per room and put a self leveling flooring product to level the floor.

Room Tip: You'll be alright choosing this hotel, just remember it is clean and a place to lay your head...

Nice experience! Best Western has done a decent job revising this hotel that I stayed in years ago. It isn't total luxury, but it is nice. I would stay here anytime. The little bar was fun also. Singing was sometimes questionable, but beer and company was good.

I have stayed at this Best Western once a year for several years. Service when making my reservation and upon arriving is always great; thanks to Jeanette at the front desk. Yes, I'll be back next year.

My rig hand co-workers come from all over and stay there. I never hear any complaints from them. Even some of our higher up guys like to stay there. Having a breakfast there makes it really convenient when they have to leave early for classes or meetings.

We have counted on quality accommodations at Best Western for many years and have not been disappointed in trusting the brand. The Crystal Palace has been our home for six weeks in the early spring for the last 14 years. The staff has been kind and have shown a caring attitude. The beds are the best providing a restful night. We would recommend this hotel with the confidence that they will meet your needs.

I am a best western member and was traveling through the area and needed a hotel. I booked it online and read the reviews. They seemed good so i stayed. The staff is not overly friendly upon check in but was nice and quick. The room was good and price right. I actually stayed again on my way back home from Vegas. The only thing i would say is that they need to welcome you once in the lobby. it shows that they know you are there and area customer.

I enjoyed my stay at this motel and will stay here again. The rooms are comfortable and the staff will go the extra mile to attend to your needs. The surroundings are pleasant and the complimentary breakfast was good.
