Verified Reviews of Best Western University Inn at Valparaiso

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Good for the price :)."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
This place was much better than expected. However, I had concerns with the cleanliness there were random hairs and lots of rust stains that made me uncomfortable.

23-Aug-2020 Verified Review, stayed from Sat Aug 22 to Sun Aug 23 2020 at a $98.00 average nightly rate.
"Dirty hotel, with a joke of a breakfast."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
My room and my friends' rooms around mine all had cleanliness issues. Sheets were stained, bedskirts were damaged, the surfaces were very dusty and the rooms had an odor (like mildew?). The complimentary breakfast was a paper bag containing an apple, a granola bar and a warm bottle of water. If I pay what I did for a hotel with a complimentary breakfast, I expect more than a child's bagged lunch. Not happy with this experience.

"Average for what used to be a good stop."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
There was minor cosmetic faults with the room (door covering the fridge not in place but placed beside the unit and bathroom shower curtain retainer missing, placed under bathroom sink) that really made this stay average compared to the high standards that Best Western normally sets. Breakfast (withstanding COVID) was disappointing as it consisted of a bottle of water, a piece of fruit and a cereal bar.
