    The Mexican restaurant, EL TAPATIO, next to the hotel was a plus! Food was excellent, service good and margaritas were fabulous!

    The breakfast was great and the breakfast preparer was friendly and very accommodating. She greeted everyone as they came through the door. Such a nice atmosphere!

    The night time front desk attendant (Angie) was above and beyond great, very helpful and friendly.

    The entertainment center was covered in black mold, the desk chair in our room was ripped up. They also called us thieves because we moved a lamp from beside to the side table near couch because there was no ceiling light or lamp near there. Also the claimed we damaged the head board, how is that even possible. I am a diamond elite member at best western and had planned on returning to best western as I work in the area lot. But after this trip and the $400 extra charge we will not be using again.
