“Good Value”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Stayed one night at this Best Western on a pleasure trip. Friendly and helpful staff. Good room amenities and we liked the first floor room. Would stay again. Only one minus: noisy refrig in the room which I had to keep moving to silence.

Hotel and room seemed nice upon checking in. However, the room must have been still being remodeled, as little things that you expect were missing, and should of been replaced before allowing people to stay in the room. Very disappointed that the WIFI did not work in the room, only in the lobby. There is a bar in the hotel, but it was never opened, and we stayed on a Friday and Saturday night. There was even a GB football game on Saturday. Just seemed odd - like the hotel did not want to cater to summer guests. Hotel only had 1 employee working on Friday night, upon check-in and she was cleaning the pool. With the bar not opened on a football game night, we could only assume the hotel did not want to pay a bartender. I won't stay there again. Breakfast was just so-so. Bed was not comfortable. You get what you pay for.

Value was okay for the price, wish breakfast was more like other best westerns i've been too, hot breakfast items such as waffles scrambled eggs, bacon, potatoes etc. Everyone at hotel were friendly and helpful, except hard to get ahold of anyone during the second shift hours.

Over all a very nice stay . On the plus side the rooms were nice and updated. The negative was that there were no elevators. Would defiantly stay again if we could guarantee a first floor room. Would have been nice to see some donuts for the kids...after all this is vacation.

Our room was not fully cleaned when we arrived. Our room was not made up the following day. Management was somewhat accepting of this situation. Our friends traveling with us had good room service, and a clean room upon arriving.

Cannot recall ever staying at a Best Western, but after spending a night at this well-run, comfortable motel, Best Western will be our first choice for low-priced lodging next time we're on the road. The Derby Inn (the motel is HQ for the annual snowmobile derby in the near-by stadium) presented a thoroughly professional check-in and check-out process, very comfortable beds, comprehensive cleanliness, quiet rooms, and decent breakfast-food options in the common lobby area.

We're not fans of locating the bathroom sink outside the shower/toilet area, but the facility included fluffy towels.

Room Tip: Our room faced onto the parking lot and an expanse of flat, fallow farm land. The room of another tr...
