Verified Reviews of Best Western Historic Area

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Volleyball Trip!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Beautiful entrance into the hotel. The staff was very friendly, made great eye contact and were helpful. Room was good, beds were comfortable. Love a lot of pillows and they had that as well. We enjoyed the indoor pool and the hot tub every night. Breakfast was good with plenty of options to choose from. Location was good enough for touring the area. Nice place to stay for those that are on a tight budget.
