Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Complaint"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I cancelled three four days prior and never got a refund as the entire amount was withdrawn from my credit card. So far my calls to Best Western have not been fruitful.The fact that I got this survey implies an error on the hotels part since I was never there!

"Quality service, poor Internet."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Greetings, This may be an unfair score, as the reason for my visit was to complete a book signing and to work on my dissertation (and other work activities). The Internet was out for large portions of one day and evening, thus rending my visit somewhat compromised. The gym equipment, too, was a bit poor (e.g. the TVs on the elliptical either did not work or barely functioned). However and more importantly, the staff was very nice and professional, the breakfast buffet was terrific and I am grateful for the experience. That said, I will likely try another hotel in my next excursion in the hopes that the WiFi will be more reliable. Very best,.

"Under construction"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Hotel is undergoing major overhaul. Rooms are clean. Pool was great. Food was so - so because of the construction. Staff was working hard to please and to maintain positive attitude. I would have to see the end result of the upgrades to make an assessment. Lots of work and money needed to bring it up to grade.
