Verified Reviews of Best Western Southside Hotel & Suites

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"I may not stay at a Best Western again."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
I booked on line as price was reasonable and said was rated as very good. I arrived to sign in lobby saying they were remodeling and thee would no hot breakfast just grab and go bag. Fan in bathroom was loud and did not have a separate switch so every time I put the light on a very unpleasant noise. I had to go back to the front desk twice because key did not work. The third time the manager came with me and opened the door said it was ok. Well it wasn't the maintenance man came to room told me he would be back because he needed to reprogram. I was not feeling well it was during the hurricane, had my puppy with me and my stuff to carry. The bed had older spring under the mattress. In the morning I took a shower went to dry hair and the dryer did not work, so again to front desk to ask for a replacement. Manager said he would bring me one to room which he did but by then my hair was almost dry. When I decided to check out to find a different hotel I took my grab bag took a barely warm cup of tea for which they had only a small plastic glass normally used for juice. When I reached my new hotel there was a great hot breakfast for which I just got there in time before clean up. Later in the day I opened my go bag from the Best Western there was one bottle of water two small apples and some kind of Nutri bar. Very disappointing stay. I will say the Manager and the maintenance man were very nice the woman at the front desk not so much.

"Dirty, delapidated and a mess!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I was relying on the rules and requirements Best Western Assoc. used to stand for. Big mistake! Lobby said they were undergoing renovation but that is no excuse for spills on floor in lobby and elevator, cracks and gouges in fixtures including ceramic chips in bath, odd set up of room where sink was separate from shower and toilet being right next to door. Unclean, dated faded old furnishings. Just felt creepy but I was halfway thru a long drive and didn't get in until 3:00 AM. Didn't have energy to look elsewhere and didn't want to lose nonrefundable payment. Also overcharged me $100 (double charged me) which I now have to dispute with credit card co. Couldn't wait to get few hours of sleep and get up and out of there! Creepy gross!

"Do not stay at Best Western Southside Hotel and Suites."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Holes in the walls, all the shower fixtures were loose almost to the point of falling if and the place smelled. I checked out early and because I prepaid I lost money but the place was so bad I had to leave never to return again. Stay away from this place. The place was raked 3.5 stars and it should not have gotten one star.

"Absolutely not worth it."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
For most hotels are a luxury especially a 120 dollars a night. I was welcomed with a weird room oder, sheets stains,and beds not made. I drove 11 hrs and all I wanted to do was sleep, as soon as I got in the bed the sheets near my face smelled like a mans balls sack. Do yourself a favor pay an extra 20 and go somewhere else.

"Disgusting"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
The room was horrible and smelled like mildew all over the room. Clothes were left behind with stains on them. The walls were filled with congestion stuff and my wife complained to the manager Bobby and he came up to evaluate the room and he smelled the same thing and said that this was ridiculous.
