Best Western in Charleston WV a Nice Place to Stay
I had a couple of friends who came in from out of state to see a concert. They needed a place to stay. I recommended Best Western since it was across the street from the Clay Center. The room was very clean and had all that they needed for the evening. The next morning they enjoyed a delicious buffet breakfast before checking out. The lady that was on duty when I went to help them check in was extremely nice and very helpful.

The good, the bad, the ugly
Location is A++Easy access from 77. Across street from Clay Center (Discovery Museum is a FANTASTIC place for kids). A very short and safe walk to Appalachian Power Ballpark—go Dirty Birds! The room was clean, very, very comfortable and quiet. The staff was friendly, helpful, and kind. 😁. One elevator was down. A decent hot breakfast was available—but you need to get there at the very beginning of the serving hours—they didn’t replenish anything.😟 Staff was kind enough to bring out individual milk containers when asked. The outdoor pool was very small and very, very, very dirty.😜. It was nice having a 12p check out. We didn’t feel rushed in the morning and we were given permission to keep the car parked in the parking lot while we took the kids to the Discovery Museum. The good far outweighs the bad and the ugly. We will definitely stay there again.
