Verified Reviews of Best Western Golden Key

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Above and Beyond!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I was very impressed with my group experience at the Best Western Golden Key for my wedding. They were extremely accommodating and so easy to work with. I needed a place to store flowers during our wedding rehearsal and lunch so that they would not wilt in the hot car. The manager, Cindy, agreed to store them in her office early in the day before we checked in. When I arrived at the hotel to drop off the flowers, the front desk staff knew exactly what was going on and they actually already had my room ready for me and it wasn't even 10am! I also had to ship a package to the hotel because it was late and they had it all documented to be on the lookout for it and called me as soon as it arrived. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the free breakfast was important in choosing this hotel for my wedding group block. I would highly recommend!
