I normally stay at the Best Westerns in town but found that this one just opened so thought I'd give it a try.
Although it was another chain hotel that has been remodeled and looks nice it still has work to do on the details.
The first room I was given had a constant running toilet, so I was moved to another room. Even though the hotel was nearly empty the dates I was there they gave me a room at the far end of the hotel with a window facing the empty parking lot. So I was not thrilled with the room selection and thought the room was pretty expensive for what I got. The room was very basic but clean. However it did not have bath mats and the tub while showering is slippery. Slippery enough that it is very easy to fall. There also was not a shelf to put soap or anything on while showering.
The next day after checking in my key no longer worked and I had to trek all the way back up to the front desk to have it re-done.
The pool area is clean and very nice, and the pool was heated.
The breakfast was pretty small and not as advertised. They had premade omelettes that had been sitting out for quite sometime, they were rubber. You could make a waffle and they had bread and a few muffins, fruit, yogurt and cereal. This was probably the smallest selection of food I've ever seen at a Best Western. Thankfully there is a Denny's around the corner.
There is an attached restaurant to the hotel but I never saw anyone eating there during the nights I was there.
The staff was very, very friendly.
Over all, I'm uncertain about going back to this hotel. It was more expensive than the other two in town and didn't have nearly as many amenities as they do. But it is clean and if you need to be by the airport then I guess it would do.
