I booked this hotel Pre COVID and was very disappointed in the fact there was no room service just a bag and go breakfast. The price was the same .... I was there 5 days and had to hunt down towels toilet paper and trash bags.... lucky for me the laundry room was next door to my room and grabbed what I needed but shouldn’t have happened!! The grab and go consisted of either a honey bun or cinnamon roll 459-500 calories, bottled water and a granola bar and some fruit cup with no ingredients or calorie count.... not even what it was!!! We traveled back home stopping at 5 hotels along the way and by far the Holiday Inn Express was the best. Served hot breakfast and had coffe with creamers other then powdered creamer! Will not be back to this best western I’ve stayed at many and this by far was the worst !!

Thank you for your review. I appreciate you taking the time to tell use about your stay. We strive very hard to insure each and every guest enjoy their stay with us and leave with an favorable impression of the hotel and our staff. On occasion we fall short of the high standards we have set for ourselves and I want to thank you for bringing your experience with your recent stay to my attention. In the Post COVID world things have changed from the old norms to help keep our employees and guest as safe as possible. One of these things is the daily maid service, we do not go into a stay over room to service the room unless it is requested by the guest. We do pick up garbage and bring replacement items to the room upon request. We also have extra towels and amenities available at the front the desk and we are happy to replace any items that are needed. We try to explain this at check in and we do understand after a long day of traveling things do not completly get heard so we also give a letter to each guest explaining the no maid service as well stating the opening and closing times of the Pool, Waterpark and our onsite restaurant Minerva's. I'm sorry that you were disappointed in your stay and I do hope you will consider giving a second chance in the future.

False advertisement. Terrible reception service. I was told when booking that my check-in time was at 4:00 pm and my room was not ready. I was told to wait it out for a couple hours and call them to see if the room was available, so, I called back, and still nothing. Never got a courtesy call informing me the room was available. Did some touring around to kill time and checked in by 11:30 pm. I was able to get a discount, after I had to ask for a complementary, but not what I had expected to receive, after the inconvenience. I do not recommend this place.

Our stay was very nice. the room was clean, nicely arranged. fresh towels on the second day with beds made sharply. Nice. We didn't ask for anything extra, so I am not sure how it would have been handled. Beds were comfortable, pillows could have been a full bed pillow.
