“No 1st Floor Available”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

My wife is handicapped and requires a 1st floor room. We made reservations for a 1st floor and
were given assurances we would be on the 1st floor. Arrived(6:40 pm), no 1st floor available.
She had to be carried to the 2nd floor (didn't want to start looking for another place that late)
Next AM, asking about the reservation, and we were scheduled for #114, 1st floor.

Did the front desk person take a tip from someone to get a 1st floor room?? Don't know.
Won't be going back!!

Pulled this hotel from a hotel coupon book at our last fuel stop. Moving to Florida permanently. Retired and looking forward to our future in the warmer climate. After 3 weeks of organizing, packing, and getting our townhouse listed with a management company we are on our way back to our new home. This Best Western was easy to reach from the freeway and the clerk was super friendly. Our room was spacious, immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. This is going to be our "regular" on trips up north. I highly recommend this particular motel. Reasonable rates and wonderful staff. They even called to make sure that the room was to our satisfaction and standards! Will definately be back, if only for a weekend getaway.

Hotel is well located for travelers on interstate 95. The property although older is in very good condition comfortable beds and very clean rooms. Restaurants are nearby as well as places to gas up. Would stay again.

While en route to Florida, we stay at the Best Western in Florence S.C..We have been doing so for the past 7 years. The room is always very clean,comfortable, and the staff is very friendly..There are many resturants to choose from , as well as many gas stations..The value is excellent, the breakfast is great..When traveling home again to NY We stay at the Best Western in Fredricksburg, Va. which I would rate the same as this one...Now hen traveling, or planning a trip, the first thing I look for is the nearest Best Western, and I know I'll be happy..Good traveling, Bob & Fran

Absolutely the cleanest Best Western that I have ever stayed at. The refrigerators in the rooms work great, mattresses are newer and firm, towels are a high quality, water pressure in the shower is outstanding, and they are dog friendly. You won't be disappointed. This location sets the bar high for all other Best Westerns.

After a long day in the car was looking for a place to stay. Usually have good luck at Best Westerns. Room was clean, though a bit musty smelling when we checked in.

At 10:40 pm just as we were going to sleep a train ran through the parking lot. Well at least that is what it sounded like. As it has been noted in previous reviews, this is a motel, where there is no central hallway, just the outdoors so the sound from outside just pours into the room.

Comfortable beds and pillows.

Thank goodness this was just a place to stop before heading out on a cross country adventure.

Room Tip: hope you like trains

The reason we choose this hotel/motel was that is was pet friendly with a $15 fee. It is old, outside corridors and worn carpet in rooms. Very tiny bathroom The value for the type of old place was expensive.
