"Needs Help"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Well, the first room was not cleaned from the people befor us. The second room had an air conditioner that was leaking and the carpet was wet up to the bed. The front desk girls gave me an attitude and said that these are things we sometimes have to deal with. The third room was okay but some of the pillow cases had stains. I used the pool skimmer in the pool so my daughter wouldn't get bugs in her hair. The breakfast was average. The morning staff at the desk were a lot kinder and Pam apologized for the issues of the night before.

"Clean room, dirty grounds, no breakfast coffee."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
We were glad to get a clean pet friendly room at the last minute at a busy travel time. The grassy areas were littered with old and new dog waste. In the morning, I was told there wasn't any coffee. After paying the typical rate for a high demand room; and a heafty "recovery fee;" and a pet fee; you expect some basic things.

"Under construction and it’s a mess!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Booked on line and not one word about it being torn apart. Which after seeing our room I knew why it needed a complete remodel! Right now I'd give it a one star NOT the 4+ star reviews we saw! We booked on line and was charged $99.99 plus tax NOT the rate of $72. which I was told was our rate and the receipt provided stating the lower price it should have been. Credit card was double that for each room. The front desk wouldn't help solve the issue and calls to the BW complaint number went without a response! The front desk was unhelpful when asked why the ice machine wasn't working (You need to put a room key in the ice machine a guest told us) and no apologies one of our rooms took several trips back to the desk to rekey before we could open door. Not high on the customer service But did say Mam each time she stopped her phone conversation when you approached. Sheets and towels are thread bare and our room was terribly smelly. Road noise was horrible all night but all the motels are on a main road so convenient but avoid the rooms on the road side. The back side was filled with company long term guests who are very polite coming and going. Hopefully, after remodel this will be a good Best Western to stay at but avoid currently Sept 2020.

Overall Score4.0/ 5
This is my second time booking in 6 months and by coincidence I had the same room as last time. Last time the peep hole the peep hole in the door had tissue stuffed in it and needed to be fixed. This time it was fixed. Could not find anything at all wrong with the room. Staff was very friendly. Morning breakfast better than most. I would recommend for sure.
