    Unprofessional Information

    The bed was uncomfortable. I ask the Lady at the front can I extend my check out she said yes until 3pm. Around 1 something housekeeping knock on the door then she open the doir door while I was still in the room. But apologize but she was only doing her job that the lady at front put the information in wrong. So we I went downstairs to talk to the front desk. The lady at the front desk was the lady who told me i could extend my check out until 3pm. But then said she made a mistake it was until 2pm. I felt if she didn't know then she should have asks somebody who know. I was from out of town and that was very unprofessional to give out incorrect information.

    Disappointing

    Stayed at this hotel based on reviews on hotel.com and I have never been so disappointed then I was with this stay. Uncomfortable, odor, completely outdated furniture and overall old . Totally disappointed. I’ve stayed at a La quinta many times and they are much more updated then this hotel. Never again.

    disappointed with this Best Western

    The hotel looks run-down and old. The breakfast was not good, especially the waffle mix (was very salty).

    Grand Western

    Room wasn’t available upon check-in, stayed in a handicap accessible room for the first night that had a leaky shower that ended up leading to standing water the next morning. The room also did not have a working toilet. The front desk the next morning was very quick to react, almost too quick as we were able to enter our previously ordered room at 7AM despite house keeping not starting the day until 9AM, why was this not available the night before? The free breakfast, parking lot and restaurant next door was all very convenient but the rooms aren’t very impressive. Next time we will spend the extra $25-$50/night at the Indigo.
