As we traveled for the last two months this was the absolutely the CLEANEST and nicest stays in the hotel during our entire cross country road trip. Amazing customer service and very friendly and carrying staff! If you worry about stays in the hotels during the COVID times I can assure you I felt 100 precent safe, respected, carried for and for sure noticed how clean this entire hotel is. I gladly come back to this place in the future. Thank you for hospitality and big shout out to the staff for keeping up so well especially during this times! Very pleasant stay!!!! Natalia and Arne

I stayed at this hotel when traveling across the country to see my nieces and nephews in Ohio. I had been driving for 7.5 hours in bad weather and I was so tired, but as soon as I walked in I felt much better. The lady at the front desk was sweet and made me feel welcome and taken care of. When I came downstairs to ask for an extra towel (I like having extra towels for my long hair) she gave me two. The room was spacious and sparkling clean. The bed was very soft. I slept like a baby! Breakfast was COVID-style, but I appreciated having the option for a hot waffle in addition to the cold stuff you get at every hotel. They also let you choose what you want in your to-go breakfast so you don't end up with things you don't like. The lady who checked me out was also very nice and I loved chatting with her. I will be staying here again on my way back!

The man who was working the front desk was extremely rude when I checked in on 12/06/2020. He spoke and treated me as if I was beneath him. There was confusion with my booking, and he was very rude answering my question I had about it. He got defensive, and raised his voice at me before I finished asking my question. I didn't know the card I used to book with online wasn't going to be the one charged. It was my first time staying in a hotel by myself. I asked him about it, and that's when he got rude with me. I didn't feel welcomed, and it was my first stay at a hotel by myself. I won't return to stay at this Best Western again because of the way I was treated. That man should not be working the front desk, or speaking with customers if he's going to treat them the way he treated me..

Dear guest. On behalf of myself and my staff I would like to apologize for the experience you had at the hotel. It is our job to explain and help you navigate the complicated system of making a reservation, especially using a third party and we have failed to do that comprehensively. I keep reminding my staff that there is always a good, respectful way to inform a guest of our policies, even if those policies are not to your liking or you find them too restrictive. Once again, I am sorry for the bad impression left by my receptionist. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas Season and travel safe.
