It was my first stay in a motel and coming from Europe the experience is preceded by images of all the films that we see where motel stays are generally the moment where something terrible will happen - No Country for Old Men! Trying to be objective as possible there is nothing particularly good or bad about the experience. The convenience of driving up to the door of your room is useful but being in the middle of nowhere means that you need a car. The room was fine, the decor was somewhat dated and lighting dim but it was functional and clean. My main issue was with the isolation, the walls and ceiling thickness meant that I could here everything that went on next door and above. Being jetlagged I needed some undisturbed sleep but got little as the guy above was up at 5am every morning and hence so was I.

Front desk was helpfull, breakfast was tricky as all the seats were taken so I took my coffee standing up.

Fine for the price but be aware of the limitations.

Room Tip: Take and end of row room, at least that's one noisy neighbour less!

I have been staying in this hotel for busines for almost 3 months now. I can probably say these words would be an understatement on the experience I had so far. Professional! Excellent Customer Service! They (especially NICK!) have helped and assisted in all of my booking needs and during my stay every time I'm there. Nick has gone extra miles so many times to help me. Good people skill and management! Like I've said this is home away from home. Hey Maria! thanks to you too! (i havent forgotten you) Harry, from day one you have provided excellent assistance on my travle needs. I can tell more about my experience, but just lets just say, I'm happy, very happy! satisfied with the overall customer service this hotel provides. Just ask them and they will try to help any which way they can to accomodate your needs. Thanks again Nick, you should managing your own hotel!

Room Tip: Just call and ask for Nick, he'll take care of the rest, thats how good he is!

We spent eight nights at the Best Western over the Christmas holidays. Once again, we were pleased with the accomodations, the service of the staff, and the breakfast bar. Any minor concern was handled immediately - almost always by Nick, who was on duty the entire week of our stay. We saw him morning and night and although we knew he had to be exhausted, he was always helpful, cheerful, and a pleasure to work with. We will stay there again the next time we are in the area to visit our daughter and her family.

Room Tip: We request a room on the second floor so no one is walking on top of us. There is no elevator, but...
