    • 4.0.Fair

      This hotel is quite dingy, and not very clean overall - the staff were friendly and helpful, but that doesn't cover for the fact that the facilities are in disrepair and look like they're falling apart. Elevator broke down several times, the one ice machine was broken, and looked like it was physically falling apart, the breakfast area was some random room that wasn't very clean or nicely laid out, etc. The hotel did have some construction going on at the time, but there was no construction taking place (maybe because of the Christmas break).

      DIRTY HOTEL WITH COCKROACHES.

      THIS PLACE HAS COCKROACHES AND THE PEOPLE ARE VERY UNFRIENDLY AND UNPROFESSIONAL. THIS HOTEL IS DIRTY AND WHEN WE WERE EATING WE FOUND COCKROACHES ON THE COUNTER.

      Piece of junk room

      The carpet was sticky. The furniture was crap. The fan in the bathroom was as loud as a jet engine. The bathroom door was falling apart and wouldn't close without slamming it. I couldn't wait to get out of there. Yuck!

      Subpar for Best Western standards.

      The stay overall wasnt that bad. We just needed somewhere to rest for the night and it did juat that. However, ulon arrival we had to wait in front of the office dor abojt 10-15 minutes for someome to come and check us in. I had jusy called corporate to complain when someone finally showed up and checked us in. Also, as for the the room itself, it smelled disgusting and old. Also old toothpaste or something stucl on the counters in the bathroom. You can tell it was halgway wiped and rhen left. The smell in the room was kinda like a musty smell. And the bed sheets felt damp from the air vent right next to it. Very off putting to say the least. Probably will not return.

      Perfect spot for trip to legoland.

      Very busy hotel. Under Construction however it did not stop our family vacation. We enjoyed the suite, service was quick, hard workers to maintain large families for free breakfast. Keep up the good work. My family and I will definately return, perfect spot if you are planning to take the family to legoland.

      Very nice stay

      It was a really nice stay I was very pleased with the hotel. It was perfect for my family to each have their own bed and privacy with the 2 bedroom suite.
