Verified Reviews of Best Western Plus University Park Inn & Suites

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"We were moved to a different hotel."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Our reservation was made through a wedding website. the hotel ended up being overbooked, so we were told we would be refunded for our hotel and that we would be moved over to a hotel across the street. Best Western paid for our room over there, which was great. Unfortunately, with all of this COVID 19 panic, I can't get through to the company that booked our room, so I have yet to receive my refund. I will keep trying!

"We Enjoyed Our Two Night Stay"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Overall, we enjoyed our two night stay at your hotel. Our room was clean and well stocked., The only negative was that the refrigerator froze our fruit and yogurt. I had an insulin pen wrapped in a protective case so it was not damaged. A person from the hotel came and adjusted the thermostat, but the same thing happened the next night. The room was well supplied, it was quiet and we enjoyed our stay. The continental breakfast was wonderful and very adequate with several choices. Desk personnel were friendly and helpful. The nights were quiet despite the fact the hotel was full of young people. They were quiet and well behaved.

"Hard to say."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
I can't really rate the hotel since they overbooked and had to send several members of our group to another hotel, which was disappointing. We were a large family in town from various locations for a wedding, so being split into multiple hotels was not a happy thought, but we were very impressed with the way Best Western handled the situation making what could have been a really aggravating weekend a bit more tolerable.

"Great Hotel"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
This was a great place to stay friendly and quick check in. Pool area was clean and everything worked as expected. Room was modern and had everything one would expect. Hot breakfast was great as well!
