visited several times in 2011
I was very pleasantly surprised the first time I stayed here. I did not expect marble tops on the tables and counters and a leather reading chair in my room. I was upgraded to a king room that included a very nice elliptical exercise machine.
The marble top desk in the room is a very nice workspace. It has a heavy lamp, power outlets, and a very nice leather secretarial chair with pneumatic adjustable height. The desk surface is abnormally high, so I had to raise the chair to work comfortably and that made my legs sore, but I put something under my feet for support.
The hotel manager, Kathy, and all of her staff are exceptionally nice.
There is a small pool and hot tub as well as complimentary access to the small fitness center in the Comfort Inn next door.
You even get a small rubber duck in the bathroom to take home to the grandchildren.
The location is excellent. A large shopping mall is nearby as are a plethora of excellent restaurants. When you visit, try Cheddars outside of the mall. The food and atmosphere are good and the small croissants served when you are seated are wonderful.
I am delighted to know that Best Western includes such nice hotels in its properties. Save cost but still enjoy comforts.
