Verified Reviews of Best Western Buffalo Ridge Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Hotel good, staff nice, NO HOT TUB."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Hotel was good and clean. Staff friendly. Breakfast was good. Very disappointed that in everything we read it said that they had a hot tub. After a very long hot tub we ready to use hot tub and found out the hot tub had been taken out. Pool is very dark, heavy chlorinated and was crowded. Not very welcoming.

"Top Quality Hotel!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
This hotel is very quiet and relaxing. The beds are top quality and rooms are well furnished. I can't say enough about the pleasant staff. Any questions we had were answered very politely and with a smile. We'll definitely stay again and pass word on to family and friends. Thank you! Our 50th anniversary stay was everything we expected and more.

"Front Desk Service Wasn't The Best."

They need to explain more on why their charging you for an extra cost. We paid in full the day I made the reservation, but when we checked in they charged us $85.00 dollars more without telling me why. I was really upset about and it also ruined my weekend stay there because I was mad.
