Nice hotel, nice staff and great food

I was in Canada on business and I was shocked to find this was a Best Western. It is a lovely hotel with great staff and a wonderful restaurant and a Starbucks. The bar has entertainment and a full menu for those that get in after 10:00 when the room service stops. I cannot wait to stay there again.

Good but needs better bed

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: bed uncomfortable
Overall this was a good place to stay however their "snugglebed" queen was small and way too firm for us. Staff was very helpful and pleasant.

Jim and Grace, Southeastern Pa.

This was our second stay at the Water Tower Inn, and we'll be back. The front desk and service staff were excellent. The attached restaurant, Casey's, has excellent food - we ate our breakfasts and dinners there, which included our daughter and three grandchildren, and shared a few "quiet" moments at the bar before retiring.. The pool and jacuzzi area was always clean. Starbucks coffee in the room was a nice touch! Thank you for the excellent accomodations which helped make our vacation a wonderful one.
