"Great!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Best Western River Cities had it all! Clean, friendly staff, delicious full breakfast, exercise room, pool, great location and even cookies for an evening snack. It was in a plaza, but off Route 23, so it was quiet. Convenient to restaurants, Krogers, Dollar Tree, etc. We will definitely be back!

"This is the first time I used your service and I was very satisfied with the software program. It was very user friendly and had so many different options you could use. There was a great selection of hotels to choose from. I have finalized my booking with Liz of Bay Park Hotel and have stopped all other biddings. Thank you again. It made my job a lot easier in finding a place to stay for the group!" J.W. - Monterey, CA
