newly renovated clean property.!!
newly renovated rooms. The receptonist Laura (not sure of her name) who works there 24/7 was amazing. she is a hell of a hard working lady taking care of the property. The owner needs to take care of her in everyway (lodging, boarding, salary, benefits, etc). the owner has renovated the rooms recently and looks good. Nice clean property for the price you pay for the breakfast included.

2/10 Poor

Shouldn’t be by best western
Random people at all hours of the night knocking on door looking for drugs. Breakfast was not attended to horrible quality food and messy, no body at desk ever, staff referred to me as them classified me as a druggy. My 3 and 6 year olds could not use the pool because it was filthy. And to top it off the roof was getting redone and there was constant nail guns going all Sunday.
