The hotel is definitely dated, but it gets the job done. The check-in was quick and courteous. The room was clean. No frills, but hey, it's what you get. I didn't get to have the breakfast that was offered (I slept late), but it's a nice offer. The grounds were ok. Again, it's a budget hotel. You get what you pay for. It was a bit pricey for one night, but again, it's also peak travel season.
The beds were comfy, and again, clean enough.
You're not in this area to be spending your time in a motel. So it gets the job done.

Place is the worst ever. We canceled a reservation. They still charged us for the room and we never even stayed there. Plenty of other places to stay. Stay. Far far away from here. Could be the biggest scam ever. Rip off poor suckers who did not even stay at the hotel. They claimed we never canceled the reservation. I guess they are never wrong. Stay away. Stay far far away.

This is the old kind of motel from the '60's. And I think the bath linens were from then. I should have done more research as I was traveling alone and don't like rooms with outside entrances. My room was right in the front, right at the parking lot. I arrived late and left early so there wasn't a lot of time to hang out, fortunately. It was relatively clean and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was included but I had a meeting and didn't take advantage of it. If you plan to stay there, take bottled water; the water tasted terrible! I wish I had done more research and stayed somewhere else in St. Michael's.

Room Tip: Not on the parking lot in the front

This was our second stay at this hotel. Our first experience a year ago was marginal. This one was horrible. The rooms smell musty, so much so that we couldn't walk into the first room and had to be moved to another one. Had no choice but to spend the night but couldn't breathe.

Other unavoidable circumstances and the way they were handled made this a very sorry experience.

QUESTIONABLE HOTEL STAFF
Our one night stay at this location was extremely disappointing. We arrived well after standard check-in time and were told rooms were not available due to a water problem. We left and returned three hours later, checked in and got to our room. Within 30 minutes one of the hotel staff was unlocking the door to our room as he escorted another guest. We unchained and opened the door, explained that it was already assigned (to us) and the two left. After that incident, neither of my two room keys worked; I went down to the front desk and reported my key no longer worked. The staff member who was trying to get into our room earlier, pulled two keys OUT OF HIS POCKET, handed them to me and suggested I use those. They did, in fact, work on my room door.

UNACCEPTABLE ACCOMMODATIONS
Also, our bathroom water was brown (sink and shower), and sandy or silty (sink, shower, toilet). The water problem was not explained to us, so I am not sure if this was a result of that problem.

TERRIBLE VALUE
We routinely stay at brand name hotels for half the price as this Best Western, and receive twice (at least) the product and service. I understand the area prices are inflated, but that does not make this facility a value.

Room Tip: If you absolutely cannot stay somewhere else, get an upper level floor in the back.

All one can ask from a motel is a good clean comfortable room. We got all that with the bonus of a great town. Kudos to Linda at the front desk - she was a great help with a great smile! This was an overall excellent experience.

Stayed at this hotel, in spite of reading poor reviews, due to previously having good experiences with Best Western. Bottom line: we should have spent more money, to stay at a different (and most likely better) property in the area. Even though this property was less expensive than others in the area, it was MUCH more expensive than the value we received. A mistake we will not make again for this area.
