    « Best Western + Glen Allen Inn Convenient stop »

    The Glen Allen Inn is an upgrade from the regular Best Western, and offers larger rooms and a more varied breakfast. The road well traveled along the I-95 corridor allows for many choices in the Motel business. I have found that the Plus motels are more likely to be satisfying and this was no exception. In all fairness, this stay was paid for in Best Western reward points as I use my membership to the fullest.

    « Poor customer service and housekeeping »

    TERRIBLE. Problem with the front desk person.- rude, argumentative, and threatening. We confirmed a double room through Expedia but were given one bed and a sofa bed. When we opened the sofa bed we were totally disgusted. The mattress was stained with what looked like a large diarrhea stain. I complained that evening and was offered no solution- same cranky front desk person. In the a.m., I attempted to speak to the front desk person (different one) but she was on the phone discussing the office printer. I emailed the hotel manager twice for a refund and to ensure the mattress was discarded with no response. I emailed customer service. They finally offered me a $50.00 travel card, which they described as a fair offer, because I ?did still spend the entire evening at hotel ? Was that the point? We stayed a full night?..trust me, if we had an option to leave we would have- they refused to refund our money ( because we booked through Expedia)?so we had no other choice than to stay. We were NOT comfortable because we had to share a bed?but hey?$50 Canadian (not even the currency we used) is fair???

    « Neat clean and in the middle of everything we needed »

    The staff was friendly, we checked in a little early , room was neat and clean .Breakfast was good and kept up. We wanted to shop and do amusement parks it was a central location for us, there was a mall 15min away king dominion 15 min and several restaurants 3 miles away

    « Just Okay »

    When entered our non-smoking room, the first thing we noticed was the odor. A call to the front desk and they immediately got us in a different one. Not a good first impression. Our second room was fine but the decor was a it dated...think turquoise blue and avocado green. The breakfast was pretty standard...unremarkable. However, the staff was friendly, our room was clean and comfortable. Fortunately, the saving grace was the reasonable price we paid.

    « Best western Glen Allen »

    It was nice. Clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. Hot breakfast was good. The attendant kept it full and hot. The pool looked nice though we did not use it. It was basically quiet. Could hear walking above us but not disturbing.

    « Best Western Cares »

    We arrived at the hotel unsure of what to do about a hotel stay because Hurricane Matthew was bearing down in the state next to us and was headed our way. Then when I was checking in the hotel I found out I didn't had the reservation I thought I had made that morning. I had made the reservation for the next day. I was very anxious about having to find a hotel in the heavy rain and oncoming Matthew. The person behind the desk assured me she could make it work. She found a room and recommended we keep the reservation for the next day in case our plans changed as the hurricane changed. That was just the start of a good visit, At every turn the hotel exceeded expectations. The breakfast was outstanding and I have stayed in hotels for years. Good job.

    « Disappointed »

    I spent one night here with my husband, adult daughter and 2 tiny dogs while attending a family wedding at the botanical garden. I contacted the hotel several times in the weeks before the wedding about an early check-in. We drove for 7 hours and arrived at the hotel at 1PM. We were tired and needed to shower and dress for the wedding. There was one car in the ample parking lot when we arrived. My husband, an affable, easy going guy went into the office to check in. He returned a minute later and said the extremely rude desk attendant tapped her wrist and said they were way too busy to check us in before the 2PM check in time. There was not another soul in sight. So, we took a ride to Walmart and Dairy Queen and returned to Best Western around ten minutes to two. The desk attendant said she was "busy" and left us to wait the 10 minutes before allowing us access to our room. We were the only people waiting. I hurriedly prepared to shower and noticed there were only 2 towels in the bathroom. I walked the short distance to the front desk and explained that we needed another towel. This same attendant stated that the rooms are set up for 2 guests, hence 2 towels. I explained that there were 3 of us needing showers. The attendant made a show of opening many drawers and cabinets behind the desk and shrugged saying she could not find another towel for us. At this point my smile was slipping and I asked if we could have one from one of the many, many unoccupied rooms. She huffed and puffed and eventually walked the 20 steps to the supply closet a few doors from our room and angrily handed me the towel. I have never had an experience like this before. The rest of the hotel staff were warm and friendly, the hotel was spotless and we actually made it to the wedding with minutes to spare but we will never stay at the Glen Allen Best Western again!

    « ......AHHHH....A REAL BEST WESTERN PLUS »

    What a pleasure to be able to say good-very good things...This is/was a real great choice after navigating some 400 miles on a crazy I-95. We needed something clean-very clean, peaceful-very peaceful, yet "reasonably" priced. This has/had it all!! AND the clincher was that the well-groomed gentleman that checked us in was, when asked was the PROPERTY GENERAL MANAGER. To make this stay A REAL PLUS, that same gentleman who checked us in was later seen running the vacuum cleaner himself. That's right a GM that leads by example It DOES make a difference!

    « Was charged twice »

    Booked this room online and prepaid. I gave my credit card for incidentals at check in. When I checked my CC I was charged twice for the same stay. I called twice and spoke to person at the front desk. Was assured it would be taken care of. Waited two weeks and finally contacted corporate and got my refund. The room was adequate. The lock on the door did not work. We could lean against the door and it would open right up. I notified the front desk and was told "oh that's right it doesn't". Ok, so why not get it fixed or don't rent that room.

    « Close to Richmond, VA »

    The hotel was clean and comfortable. It needs a little updating but was good enough for a short stay. For those visiting Richmond it is located about 5 miles away. A very good buy which included free breakfast and parking. Would recommend this hotel.

    a pleasure to stay room was clean,bathroom was very clean and internet was very easy to use. I came there to sleep and was very tired from our trip. Was not noisy and very pleasant night stay over all.

    « Older hotel but nice »

    Stayed two days in a two queen bed room. The hotel seems to be older. However, the room and the bathroom were very clean and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was good and the attendant did a very good job at keeping everything stocked. It was a perfect hotel for our trip. Would book here again if I return to the area.

    « Nice place for the price »

    Honestly, my expectations were exceeded. This hotel had good service, the bed was comfortable, the room was clean, and the breakfast was decent. It was continental, but had sausage, eggs, and waffles as well. Pool looked nice although we didn't get in. Overall, not fancy but nice for the price

    « The Good and the Bad »

    We chose this Best Western because it is a pet friendly hotel. It worked our fine for our little Yorkie. However, the front desk never notified housekeeping that we were checking out late, even tho we received clearance to do so. Also, our room key wasn't working in the laundry facility, and the daytime front desk staff was annoyed that we were having problems. It would have also been nice if the laundry facility had a coin machine since the machines were coin activate.

    2
    « Friendly People but Poorly Managed Property »

    The people are friendly and the pool refreshing, however Housekeeping, communication between Front Desk and housekeeping, hotel supplies and breakfasts need improvements. 1. Check in and our room was not finished as no towels in bathroom. 2. Bathtub was slippery and I slipped but didn't fall. Asking for bath mat, none was available so had to use pool towel. Subsequent days, no bath mat and had to use towel or go down to front desk. 3. Breakfast was very simple, only fruit were apples and oranges. Not like the other best westerns which normally has a full array of fruit.

    3
    « Only deserving a 3 out of 5. »

    Room and bathroom cleanliness needs improvement. Dirt, dust and clothing behind sofa in room and dirt and debris on bathroom floor, bathtub needed scrubbing. 1 Front desk person needs to improve customer friendliness. Breakfast room manager is conscientious and friendly. Items provided are "standard."

    « Very nice stay »

    We often stay in this area and decided to try a new hotel. And happy we are! We found the hotel staff very accommodating. The room was spacious and clean. Parking was secure. The hotel itself was quiet. The complimentary breakfast was average but plentiful. We think we found our new resting place in Glen Allen.

    « Nice stay! »

    Nice and peaceful, good breakfast, pool, great service. Shout out to Ms Joanne, she is the best! Really enjoyed the week, would stay again. If you plan on being there for a whike there us also a guest laundry room.

    This is a very nice hotel in every aspect. The furnishings are newer, and the rooms are large and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful with all requests. The pool is clean and well maintained. The location of the hotel is convenient for on and off highways . Just a solid place to stay.

    « Not a Plus BW »

    Rated 'Poor' as a Plus BW. Nothing special. Bathroom needs update. Housekeeping did half-way job. Guests and staff at breakfast were noisy. Hot breakfast was eggs, sausage, and make-your-own waffles, but otherwise not too special.

    « Very Good Motel Just Outside Richmond »

    I always stay here when running the Richmond Marathon. Very clean, well maintained motel with comfortable bed and good breakfast. Gas, food, shopping close by. Easy access to I95/295. Reasonable rates.

    « Wonderful Stay »

    The hotel was clean, the staff was very nice and informative. The room was nice and clean and comfortable. It was a pleasant stay and I will Definitely come and stay again. The hotel was peaceful no distractions or disturbance. The breakfast was set up nicely, food looked good and tasted good.

    « A great nights sleep »

    This hotel was top notch. Employees, Biz and Eddie were always asking if they could be of assistance. Wish the stay was for more than the one night. Easy access to to I-95. Just North of Richmond.Slept like a baby.

    « Very Comfortable Stay »

    I asked for a room on the top floor, we got one but it didn't smell good when we went in. I called the desk to make sure it was a non smoking room and she told me it was (322). I told her it smelled like smoke but we would stay, I just didn't want charged for being the one to smoke in it. She said she would make a note of it. We did not eat breakfast there any morning because we had to leave before it started at 6:30 so I can't comment on it. Everything in the room was in working order but if you get a suite with a sink and hotplate, there are no dishes or utensils. I guess you have to check with the desk. We were here three nights. The first morning we met the cleaning lady in the hall and told her she didn't need to do anything but exchange towels, she was frustrated with the amount of work she had and it was not a big deal. The second day, nothing was done and we didn't return until after 5pm. We had to go to desk to get towels. I didn't complain but many would.

    « NOT CHILD FRIENDLY »

    our family of 5 (husband, myself, children ages 6,4,and 1) arrived late at night after several hours cooped up in the car. we had a reservation and the website says that children under 12 stay for free.....this is not the case. we were told that we could not stay in the same room together because it exceeds their occupancy for the double queen size beds room. we were told that we would have to leave because they were booked up and did not have a second room for us to rent, even though it would have been ludicrous for us to have to rent 2 rooms just because the baby counts as an adult. we travel often and have never had this issue with any other hotel EVER. so late at night we had to scramble to find another hotel that was more than glad to accommodate.

    « Very nice place to stay. »

    This hotel was just a nights stay for us while passing through the area. It was a nice and clean place to stay. The parking was good and there was the typical breakfast in the morning. The check- in was easy and we would consider this as a place to stay if in the area again.

    « Need Improvement »

    The customers service was great, but it is great at 95% of the hotels I stayed. With blood stain on my bed, dirty toilet and slippery bad tub. I will not recommend staying here for $89.00 per night. Most of my stays are at Best Western, this one did not live up to the standard. A $49.00 per night hotel is better.

    « blood on comforter and wall »

    We had a terrible experience at this hotel. Very understaffed. THe only person working was one girl at the front desk and she was working very hard to try to both answer the phone and take care of the long line of customers at the front desk. We stayed here about 6 years ago and had a great experience, which is why we chose to stay here again. There had been a storm the night before, and the power had been out. When we were leaving the next morning, the fireman outside told us that the hotel should not have been open, as the fire alarms were not working!! The hotel was filthy! There was blood on our wall and on the comforter. We went to the front desk and after waiting in line for 20 minutes to ask for new and she informed us that she had to wash one and we could come back to get it later when it was done...and change it OURSELVES, as she was the only one working in the hotel, no cleaning staff, no one!! It was not the employees fault. She was working very hard. So later, we came back to the front desk to wait in line again and get the "clean" comforter and change our own bed!! I reported this to corporate who said they would have hotel management contact me and have never heard a word from them! We will find somewhere else to stay next time!!!!

    « Accommodating Staff »

    My husband and I stayed here with our 8 month old daughter. The staff was amazing and friendly. The hotel atmosphere was kid friendly. The hallway our room did smell a little like smoke in the morning, but not when we arrived. The room we stayed in was clean. The breakfast was satisfactory.

    « Unclean sheets and hair from previous guest everywhere! »

    Came here 2 nights ago and did not notice the sheets had hair on both beds. The following morning II inspected them after my child saw one, then I noticed some on my bed. I could not believe my eyes. I immediately told the maid that these sheets were not changed before I arrived. They obviously only made up the bed after the old guests left. Also the bathroom was not clean either The floor was filled with hair. Absoulutely disgusting.

    « Great Hotel Despite Bad Storm »

    The BW Glen Allen Hotel in Glen Allen, Va., was our last hotel stop on the way home after a 2-wk vacation to Florida. We had no res. but were able to get a really nice room (very clean and comfy!) on the 3rd floor. About 30 min. later a really BAD thunderstorm with near tornado-like winds tore through the area, leaving the entire hotel w/o power (no air cond. on a very warm night!) and non-stop smoke/fire alarms blaring for a couple hours straight until local fire dept. came, inspected bldg. (there was no fire) and turned them off. My husband & I had maybe 2 hours sleep at most that night. VERY chaotic. Most people just stayed in rooms and dealt with it. Felt very sorry for families with children and dogs(allowed at this hotel). Quite scary. Even a small part of building's exterior roof, soffit and rain gutter came off (right above our room!!). BUT no one was hurt - everyone was safe. Power came back on (Yay!!) several hours later. We're home now, but my ears are STILL ringing from those alarms! I hope that the BW Corp. sees it in their hearts (and checkbooks) to give even a little compensation (gift card perhaps??) to all guests that night of June 16th, 2016 at the BW Glen Allen in Va., for what we all had to endure (after all we all DID pay at least $100.00 for each room). I know that Best Western Hotels is not responsible (of course) for the storm, but it would really show good Customer Service for its' brand. Aside from that storm (again, out of BW's control) yes, I would still definitely recommend the BW Glen Allen Hotel in Va., to anyone looking for a quality, CLEAN & COMFY room. Best Western is still the ONLY hotel chain that my husband and I have ever stayed at and always will. They are excellent quality, great customer service, (we even had unexpected UPGRADES on our trip!!!) and CLEAN!! :) One final note: I graded the hotel experience rating/survey overall on what it WOULD have most likely been like WITHOUT the storm experience! After all, as I've stated before, the storm was out of BW's control and not one of the area's 'attractions'! ;)

    « Not friendly/polite »

    I just checked in. The lady was to busy apparently to acknowledge I was there until I sad hello. When I checked in I mentioned there was a package I was waiting on and if I had anything and she immediately said no. She didn't even check for me, and she came across so rude about it I felt I would share. This is the service industry, if you cant be polite to paying guest maybe find something to do that you wont ruin a persons mood by being rude. Wont be staying here again.

    « Did not meet expectations set by other "PLUS" hotels. »

    I made a reservation for the weekend, June 10th through the 12th for our son's tournament sporting event in the area. We have stayed at a few BW's, both Premier and Plus tier hotels from BW. I did not find this hotel to be of the same caliber as the other 'upper-mid-range' "plus" BWs. The only positive comments I can provide is that the room (King suite with sofabed) was very spacious and the front desk person (Carol) provided us with clean linens and extra towels upon request. -The room HEAVILY smelled like smoke/musty odor. The front desk person offered some "air freshener" to make it better. -There were two missing light bulbs from lamps. -Noticed a small hole (size of quarter) in closet -Bathroom door would not lock -Shower head was not secured/fixed to wall, only being held up by copper water supply line in the wall . -Mirror in bathroom dirty/smeared -Brown stains on sheer curtains (assuming from the air conditioning unit?) My family tried to laugh off the ridiculous of what we saw or had to experience. Additionally, there were no additional pillows available because this hotel was full this weekend. The next morning, as we left our room, we were stopped by cleaning personnel, and asked if we needed anything. I politely stated new towels, and replacement light bulbs for those that were missing. Perhaps, I was confused, because I would've thought that meant that the cleaning persons would come in, straighten up the room, new linens, AND PROVIDE NEW TOWELS, and bring light bulbs. We returned later that evening to an un-tidyed up room, old towels on the floor, etc. and fixtures without light bulbs! Perhaps it was the 'A' teams' weekend off. I would not stay at this hotel again, and told my family to reprimand me if I do something like this again. It made for a good "not what to do" lesson. We did not "experience" the 24/7 coffee, nor did we tempt ourselves to the breakfast. There's a McDonald's and a Starbucks within a few minutes drive. All of our non-worn clothes needed to be washed once we returned home.

    « Charged more than what the room was reserved for »

    Made a reservation though a Best Western operator and the price quoted on the phone was not the price I was told to pay when I got here. It was $10 more. The front desk couldn't help and customer service wouldn't help. I'll find a different place to stay next time.

    « Really nice staff »

    I just stayed here 1 night while driving from FL to NY and I really enjoyed it. I booked on Expedia and then when I got here the front desk lady said there was a 20$ pet fee for my dog. Normally I'd be irritated about it but the lady was so friendly and welcoming that it didn't bother me. She even came out to say hi to my dog which was sweet of her. The room was a little stuffy but everything seemed pretty clean. People were having fun in the swimming pool when I got in around 10pm and it made me wish I'd brought my suit!

    « Nice, Clean and Friendly »

    We have stayed here twice before so had no qualms about staying here again. The room we had was huge...king bed, little kitchenette with a full refrigerator, microwave and 2 burner stove, and sink. The staff goes out of their way to be friendly and helpful. Our only disappointment was that I made the reservations back in November. Come to find out on check-in that 3 weeks before they had made the entire hotel non-smoking. I know this would be good news for most people but my husband and I are both smokers. But we just went outside...not that big a deal! We didn't eat breakfast there so I can't comment on that but it looked good. All in all, a great hotel that we would not hesitate to stay at again.

    « Good Value »

    This was very convenient to I-95 and area dinning. Staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean. Overall a very good value. Stayed at another hotel on the way home and paid $60 more for a tired, lower quality room and no breakfast.

    « insensitive staff »

    Had noise problem and out of order phones. Staff was completely apathetic. There was a dog loudly barking for about 5 hours and my phones were not working, so I needed to walk to the front desk every time to ask for some relief. There was "nothing they could do." Yes there is - make certain that every time a guest registers with a dog, get their mobile phone number so they can be contracted if necessary. Seems basic to me!

    « Nice stay »

    Staff friendly. Close to a Walmart and a few fast food places. Our room with king bed was spacious and had a small microwave, apt. size fridge, sink, electric stove and sofa sleeper. Be advised kitchen is not stocked. Only problem was fridge was a bit loud. Free breakfast included waffles, breads, yogurt, fruit cereal and hot offerings. One day biscuits and gravy the next eggs and sausage patties. Quality of hot food was average.

    « Enjoyable stay »

    Clean comfortable hotel they do serve breakfast,however I did not try it, but the breakfast area was full with guest every morning so I would assume that it was enjoyable.they have a large parking lot.friendly staff. close to restaurants, shopping, groceries, convenient stores, quick access to major highways, you would be hard pressed to find any fault with this place.

    « Another great stay in Glen Allen »

    We stay in Richmond visit relatives several times a year and have recently found the Best Western Glen Allen Hotel. It is conveniently located, a block from route 1. The hotel is well maintained and we have found the staff extremely welcoming and helpful. We travel with our two small dogs and they make it extremely easy for us. We have a room very near the side entrance which allows us to take the "boys" out for a walk really easily. Hotel is clean, well maintained, good breakfast and internet. All this for a reasonable rate -- what more can you ask?

    « Great value, Great location »

    Good value for the dollar. Parking is free and the hotel is very convenient to downtown Richmond. About 20 minute drive. Near the Ginter Gardens. Elevator building with quiet rooms. Breakfast is standard for this kind of hotel. Sure wish they would add fresh blueberries!

    « One night some issues »

    Spent one night here on business rate was around $72 which is a decent value for the area property is in good shape but needs some extras. I found the staff to be okay not overly friendly but responsive. My room was a king I hated the bed I hated the wall paint color Desk, TV, Internet were all fine Location is good covienant to Highway and walk to Waffle House and WaWa. Business center is one computer without proper anti virus or file cean up after use. There are people's tax returns, drug test, credit card info on this computer right now. If your using a business center and not removing your files your running a huge risk. Think people! Given the choices in the area I will probably stay elsewhere next time.

    « Hotel Staff helped make my a TERRIBLE one. »

    Hotel checkout was at 11am. The front desk called me at 11:00 exactly to inquire about checkout. I told them that I would be checking out in 30 mins. They called me back in exactly 30 minutes, then knocked on my door, startling my children. When I did check out at 11:45, the front desk charged me an additional $10 for a late check out. I was never informed of this policy, and it was not posted at the front desk, on my receipt or contract, or anywhere else at the hotel. The front desk associate, Asterid, was very rude and unprofessional. The manager, Mr. Patel/Patic, hung up in my face. I was very offended and plan to tell everyone that I know about my horrible Best Western experience.

    « Nice property for a stop over »

    We stopped in Glen Allen for one night en route back to NJ from FL. The Best Western Glen Allen Inn is a modest hotel and a good place to stay for one or two nights. It is clean and the front desk staff as well as the breakfast staff were efficient and welcoming. We would return again.

    « Bed bugs »

    I have stayed at this hotel before with no problems. But this time was different, stay in room 109. A few days later the red marks started . It was bed bugs and they are hard to get rid of. I don't understand hoe this is a Best Western Plus when it is a dirty as it is. I will not stay there again.

    "Stay over" rooms are not cleaned regularly. The printer in the business center does not have toner. The washing machine is broken. The weight machine and bike machine is broken. The morning server does a great job with food service. The am clerk is greets and makes conversation over breakfast. I don't know why this hotel has such great reviews.

    I was in quick need of hotel room and decided to give Best Western a try. The staff was friendly and the room was better than expected. I do believe that the breakfast need some work, but outside of that it was overall a good experience.

    « A model for all hotels to follow! »

    I arrived at the hotel around 9:30pm and was greeted by Carol. Her customer service skills immediately made you feel as if you were home and safe. As I was in the lobby, she clearly greeted each guest coming in and exiting in a manner that made them feel that they were really cared about instead of going through motions. My room, a mistake was made in my reservation as a smoking room and without hesitation, Carol corrected it. From the immediate entrance to the desk, lobby, elevator, hallways on all three floors, and the rooms and bathrooms, the staff without a doubt has set high standard that many high end 4 and 5 star hotels can not match in cleanliness. If my work routed me to stay in the Richmond area again, this is definitely the hotel of my choice. WaWa and Waffle House within 1/4 mile and 24 hours....what more can a single man need in the late night.

    My daughter had a cheerleading competition in Richmond on the weekend. We really didn't want to stay downtown and pay to park so we choose Glen Allen. This hotel was clean and spacious; takes pets and let us check out a bit late without any fuss. The breakfast was all carbs, but we ate elsewhere. Fan in the room was quite loud but the walls are thin so it blocks noise from the hall and rooms above. Good deal for about $100.

    « Top Notch Glen Allen Bestwestern »

    We are seasoned travelers. Cleanliness is top priority, maintenance of property critical. I don't want to see frayed carpet, crumbling plaster, dirty grout, doors with loose locks and all the rest. This hotel passed my rigorous tests with flying colors. Beds comfy, fresh and inviting. Bath spotless. Room smelled clean, but no odor of chemicals or sprays trying to mask odors. Just clean. AC worked well. Even in Dec we used it. Can't comment on TV we did not turn it on. Husband was not feeling well but my WiFi was fast. Lovely soothing and tasteful decor. Breakfast hot and plentiful. Eggs, sausage, waffles, cereal many juices etc. Good protein selections. Excellent stay. Quick and friendly check in and out.

    « What's up with breakfast »

    We stayed one night at the Best Western in Glen Allen. It's very well situated as a stopover for a long trip on the I-95. The room was good, and clean. What surprised me was the free breakfast. In every other hotel I've stayed at with a free hot breakfast, there's been some form of egg, and some form of either sausage or bacon served. Not here. It was biscuits and gravy; disappointing for breakfast. There wasn't really much protein content there. Biscuits - made from flour. Gravy - likely thickened with flour. Waffles - flour batter. Toast - made from flour. Bagels - flour. Well you get the idea,

    room was clean and comfortable. Staff was helpful in finding a good restaurant. Not the best part of town but seemed safe enough. Continental breakfast was typical but staff was very nice. Over all it was good value.

    warning of hotel scam. Beware---arrived at hotel, checked in with no problem . In room about 10 minutes and hotel phone rang. Manager of hotel at front desk on phone. Said he was sorry but their computers had gone down and they lost our information. Would we give it again---name, address and charge card#. Husband about to give when wife recalled reading of a dangerous scam. Tried to tell desk we would come down--caller said no trouble to us--just give info. Hung up -called front desk..No one had ever called us from the front desk!!! They said this is happening at many hotels. We said they should tell people when they check in.

    The staff was friendly and accommodating and the hotel itself was very clean! It has everything we needed. Very close to Richmond and decently priced. Will certainly be back if I need to stay in Richmond!

    Will always use Best Western and enjoy their facilities and most of the time breakfast. My recommendation is to make available ability to make reservations at any Best Western without going through a third party. Thanks for your response. ajennings10@att.net

    We were traveling between Cape Cod MA and Summerton, SC. We chose Best Western Glenn Allen because it was about ten hrs out. We were very pleased with our choice, the room was very comfortable ,clean and the pillows are very nice. . I went to sleep in 10 minutes which is a very good thing for me.

    Nice hotel to stay at. The staff was really friendly and helpful. Our room was very nice and clean. Hotel overall seems well maintained. Places close by to grab a bite to eat. If we are back in the area again we will stay here.

    « A nice stop over »

    We were driving down from New York to Raleigh NC and stopped here for an overnighter before continuing. Our stop was unplanned and not researched. What a great find! Our room was very clean and quiet - we were near the end of a hallway. The service at reception was great. We've paid more for much less.

    Everything you need at an excellent price! Hotel staff were very pleasant. My room was clean, and nicely updated. I enjoyed free internet, free breakfast and a very comfortable bed. This hotel is located in a very busy area of VA. Hotels nearby charge alot more and provide no more value than here. I'll stay here again for sure!

    « Great price for short stay »

    We needed an inexpensive overnight stay for our college tour trip to Richmond. This hotel was a great choice. The rooms were large and very clean. The beds were on the firm side for my liking, but that's personal preference. The free breakfast could have used eggs and bacon rather than sausage and biscuits, but again that's personal preference. The location was about 10 minutes from Richmond in a business area (but there were plenty of food options and even a fairly large mall) which was fine for our needs.

    « Very impressed »

    I have not stayed at a Best Western in over 10 plus years, but was pleasantly surprised when I decided to give the Best Western Plus figuring it would be a step up. I was pleasantly surprised and satisfied with the accommodations, cleanliness of the hotel, our room and service from the staff for the affordable price. Best Western Plus will be a choice in the future.

    Overall Review I would say it was very nice the breakfast could be a lot better more choices, more hot fresh foods, real juice to dink not artificial. Pool area was very clean, the water was so wonderful very nice area but needs some shade trees or some comfortable relaxing music would be nice. it was nice that the hotel wasn't far off the interstate, that's very helpful...

    Very clean rooms. Comfortable beds. very spacious room. I was very Impressed. I was there with my daughter . Stopped in for some sleep on our way to a Florida road trip and I was very impressed of the size and cleanliness of the room. I felt we were the only one in the building since I heard no noise thru the walls or hallways. it was soooo relaxing . I will be Back. Thank you.
