Reviewed 15 January 2014

I have stayed at this hotel many times for one night while on business. It is clean, close to shopping, eats, and my work...awesome. The food is decent at the hotel but primarily carbs. The staff is great and I see the same faces over and over.

First off, just to clarify: Best Western Hickory is a MOTEL. That is, you park in front of your door; the door to the room opens to the parking lot (as opposed to an interior corridor). This caught me completely off-guard: I scanned 10-15 TripAdvisor reviews and the property description, none of which mentioned this fact. (At the very least, a large number of the rooms here are motel-style. There may be some hotel style rooms in the main building, but my room was motel-style)

I didn't feel this location was unsafe, but the whole experience of parking in front of my door made the property feel very dated and evoked memories of motel stays as a kid in the 1970s. Also, having to walk outside through 10° cold whenever I needed something from the lobby was not fun.

That said, the room seemed clean, and had a microwave, mini-fridge and HDTV. There was free WiFi. The beds were OK: not great, but not terrible. The staff at check-in was particularly friendly (even gave me 2 free water bottles), and the lobby area seemed nice.

Had I known in advance that Best Western Hickory was a motel, I would not have elected to stay there. Having stayed there, I can say it wasn't a bad experience. Just don't expect this to be a Best Western HOTEL, because it isn't.

Spent one night and had a very pleasant experience. We stayed here because we were selling at the Hickory Gun Show. If at all possible, we always stay at Best Western. The room was small, but very clean.

We always enjoy our stay at this Best Western. They go above and beyond to make you feel at home. From the check in to the room ammenities to the breakfast, all make for a good experience. The staff is well trained and really care about their team. You can tell that this hotel is well managed and that people really take pride in their work.

We again stayed here while visiting relatives in the area. Very quiet facility, room was clean,had king bed,and desk and sofa. Bathroom was stocked,and everything was clean and worked as it should. The breakfast was as usual,with just about everything you could want,including microwaveable breakfast sandwiches, fruit,yogurt, cereal,juices,milk,coffee,sweet rolls,bagels,etc. This is definitely where we stay in Hickory,as it's by far the best value. The only concern is that they do NOT have an elevator, so if that's an issue,get a room on the first floor. Otherwise, it is our definite choice to stay--and don't forget the evening cookies.

Room Tip: I prefer to stay on the second floor away from I-40.

A converted 2 1/2 star hotel. No elevators, worn bed spread, inexpensive toiletries. We got a great price on a unplanned trip, and this really is a bargain. Great lobby, and friendly staff, just not a star hotel.

Stayed here on a business trip. We normally stay in Hilton brand hotels and never have problems. On this trip, one they do not have and elevator. Two, there were bugs I could see and take pictures of (so much for their +90% sanitary rating). And three for the price of this hotel you can go to a Hampton for the same price and get a room 100 times better.
