Verified Reviews of BW Premier The Central Hotel & Conference Center

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Very Accommodating"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We were a large group traveling for a football tournament. Best Western Premiere was so accommodating, whether we forgot a toothbrush or other necessity or helping us find a location to sit and relax despite all of the other events they had going on. Thank goodness for this hotel. The tournament was not great but this hotel helped create positive memories for our families. I would definitely recommend.

"Superb Hotel!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We brought a large group to Best Western Premier Hotel and every family was happy with the quality. The front desk staff were cheerful and professional. The ice cream social in the lobby was a big hit with the children along with the large, clean pool. Our suite was gorgeous, clean and quiet. Best two nights sleep I've ever had in a hotel thank you for implementing the quiet time at 10 pm The pub was great and convenient lots of great food choices. We will definitely use this hotel again! Thank you.

"The service was excellent!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
From the moment you walk into the hotel lobby you are greeted and made to feel welcome. The lobby, front desk, hallways and elevators were all clean and without dust. My husband enjoyed the coffee and I liked the ice chilled water, especially the water with fresh cut fruit. Andy, the night worker did a nice job of communicating when the pool was closed. He was very nice in allowing our group to sit quietly in the lobby after the pool was closed. We look forward to returning to this hotel for years to come. They made it very easy to plan a large event with little confusion.
