During a recent vacation, we stopped at this hotel for one night. The good side: Entering the lobby, it is nicely decorated with a good looking restaurant and bar area. The staff, although young, was courteous and attentive. It also had a large courtyard with spacious outdoor pool. Everything you should expect from a BW Plus property. The ugly side: Upon check-in, I was told I needed to use the interior room door to unlock the exterior room door. An odd room configuration to be sure. Upon entering our room, I figured out why. All of the exterior doors had rusted through at the bottom and needed to use the safety lock on the inside to keep someone from easily pushing the door open. The rust had created hole in the bottom of our door could have fit a broom handle. We were fortunate not to have any critter issue because of this but did have an issue with the smoke from other guest smoking outside their rooms. As for cleanliness, I'll let the water bottle under the bed skirt, peppermints under the AC unit, and stale bread chunk on top of the iron storage area speak for itself. If you are traveling with more than 2 people, bring your own towels. I asked the hotel for 2 additional towel sets. What I got was 1 towel and a hand towel. It seems they have an issue with item theft because of the placard in front of the TV indicating the cost for every (and I mean every) item in that room. To me, a lot of this would have been forgivable if I'd had payed $29.99 a night. I did not expect this from a Best Western Plus.
