    Pulled into hotel and discovered wallet missing. I had dropped it 70 miles back at a gas station. Thank God it was still on the ground near a gas pump. Angels were watchimg over it. This hotel stay was at late nighter and early leaving. Beds were great but not much other was experienced. Staff was very helpful during my wallet capper. They helped me stay calm and figure it out. A big thank you to the staff. God does do miracles.

    « One night stay »

    We had a problem with our car and weren't able to make it back to Charlotte in the dark so we stopped in Best Western. They were able to accommodate us with a clean room on the first floor not far from the front desk. They have early breakfast and a nice seating area to eat and watch the television. Nice stop over.

    Our stay was only 1 night; was just passing through but hotel and grounds were very clean and well maintained. Staff was exceptionally helpful and polite. Room was very clean and well stocked. Popular steak house was within short distance. Will stay here again if in the area.

    Made the reservation online and then called asking for early checkin. Marie at the front desk told me should not be a problem. Arrived 1 hour later and room was ready. Then I asked for a late checkout and again Marie was very nice and told me no problem. Upon checkout she even asked if everything was ok The staff at this best western is amazing Thank you all !!!!

    This was my first time staying here. I was impressed with the hotel. The room was nice it was really clean the bathroom was also clean. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was good. Staff was really helpful. I would definitely stay here again. And would recommend to anyone wanting a nice place to stay for a night or even longer.

    « Go somewhere else »

    This hotel is not convenient to the Blue Ridge Parkway, the purpose of our trip. The bathroom had old cracked caulking on top of previous old cracked caulking. The bathroom had an overall old and dirty appearance. The lighting did not have a high enough wattage to put on makeup comfortably.

    « Don't Stay Here »

    I checked in late while my husband and daughter stayed in the car. It took 20 minutes to talk to the front desk clerk because customer were disputing the room they were booked into. Checked in, went to the back entrance per the clerk's advice to get to our 2nd floor room. The back entrance was not secured. The room was clean, beds were hard with a comfy pillow-top mattress pad. At 2:30 a.m. there was persistent knocking at the door. The man said he was from "Security" and asked me to open the door. I opened it, but kept the latch on. Never do this! The man hid partially behind the wall, but I could see a navy blue uniform. He never showed a police or security badge or ID. He said that we had our "vents on" and they smelled marijuana from our room. Luckily, my husband came and stood behind me and the man just said, "Oh you were sleeping." and I closed the door. I asked the desk clerk (after another 20 minute wait to check out) in the morning if she knew anything about it and she said she didn't. We left without eating breakfast. It was very unnerving.

    « Great Motel »

    This was a great motel. We were going to the NC mountains and everything else was booked that was in the mtns. So we found this, an hour away and would definitely stay here again. Easy access to the highway, lots of restaurants around the area. Dog friendly rooms that open to the exterior. We had our 2 75lb labs with us and had no trouble at all. The bed is super comfortable. Really nice motel and great prices.

    The front desk, housekeeping, etc. were all very friendly. Breakfast was good. Room was nice and clean. I have stayed here numerous times. The air conditioning is quiet and the beds are comfortable. I always choose an upstairs room. Great for short business stays. Close to restaurants. Easy to get in and out of the hotel.

    « NO elevator! Outside entrances. »

    We booked our room online and did not note there was NO elevator anywhere in the reviews we read or on the website . This is not something we thought we had to look for in this day and age of everything being easily accessible! Also, please note, the doors all go to the outside! We were quite surprised when we arrived to find ourselves on the second floor of the back section of the hotel. The person at the desk apologized several times when he realized one of us was going to have difficulty accessing the rooms as there were no first floor rooms left. He did not offer a refund or suggest any other options for us so we did stay as we really had no choice. The steps were outside and not near the rooms we were in so we only went up and down them twice. I think the lack of an elevator should be noted during the reservation process. We were not planning on having a person unable to walk up stairs but illness can happen and the healing does not always go as planned. Given the option, we would have tried to stay at another nearby hotel that would have been easier for us all.

    For just $83 (before taxes), this hotel proved to be an excellent value. My room was clean, tidy, and well-furnished. It included a refrigerator, microwave, and iron/ironing board. The shower space was roomy, and the water pressure, temperature, and dispersion was perfect. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. I'll definitely be back.

    The staff was great, pleasant and helpful. The rooms were clean and the rest of the hotel was inviting and well cared for. The price was reasonable and access to the hotel was easy from the highway. The breakfast had everything imaginable and the breakfast server was very conscientious about keeping the area clean and making sure the stations were well supplied.

    Stopped by here on a road trip. Hotel was ok. The hotels all seem to be in clusters around the I40 highway you could here the trains and freeway traffic. Hotel was clean staff was friendly. Bed was soft and comfortable. Breakfast is the usual very plentiful and hot foods. Enough for road travelers. Check out in the morning the clerk was not as friendly as night check in.

    « An Adventure »

    I can't say enough great things about the Hickory Best Western! We had two children with us (our stopping point was Hickory) and it was a Thursday evening; we called it our adventure night as we were on the way to the mountains; however, it was getting late. When we finally arrived after midnight, the staff offered the children milk before bed and put us in a room near the Lobby for the children's convenience. Very nice! The room was nice and large for the four of us and the bathroom was perfect! Breakfast? Well, the children loved making their waffles! As I ate my waffle and fruit, they informed me they were going to get a doughnut, juice, sit and watch the news in the Lounging area! It was a beautiful area and the staff, ALL staff, was so nice!!! It was great staying there so the children didn't have to wake up at 4 or 5 in the morning for a weekend mountain trip. We'll be back for our Thursday night Adventure!

    Needed a place to stay while we passed through Hickory. We landed on the perfect spot with this Best Western. It is a great value! The rooms were very comfortable rooms. The breakfast was very delicious. We loved the waffle bar. I always prefer to stay at a Best Western. It is the best value for your money.

    I found the Best Western in Hickory, North Carolina convenient to where I was going in Hickory, it was easy to find and the outside appearance was very inviting. The room was perfect for our use and the complimentary breakfast was one of the best I have ever used when traveling.

    « Clean, comfortable, and awesome staff »

    The afternoon popcorn is a nice touch as well. This was a 2 night stay booked through one of the 3rd party sites. We checked in fairly late in the evening after a long day of driving and visiting with friends in the area. The gentleman at the desk was truly fantastic. He started up a conversation with me and made me feel right at home. That made me know right away this would be a great stay. One thing he threw out there that is good info for anyone booking through a 3rd party is that many times it automatically books a smoking room for some reason. He got us into a non-smoking room without a problem. In the future I would probably call soon after booking the room to confirm that the reservation is for non-smoking. As far as the room, it was your standard fare best western, although this is probably the cleanest one I've been in. The beds were comfy and the AC actually worked well! The only complaint I could come up with was the pitiful hot water pressure in the sink. In the grand scheme of things though, it wasn't that big of a deal. The pool area was clean and the water crystal-clear. The other members of my family said it was really cold, but hey it gets chilly at night in late September, so not terribly shocking. The breakfast area was awesome with a pretty big selection and an attendant who actually acknowledges guests and asks how their stay is going. Overall I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice place to stay at a good rate.

    « Finally! True Southern Hospitality! »

    My wife and I recently had to make a last minute trip to NC to attend a funeral. I also wanted to go to the mountains since we live at the beach. We booked this last minute without knowing what we would arrive to. From the minute we arrived at the beautifully maintained property we were happy. Check in with front desk person Hayden was like talking to an old friend. I had an issue with my CC at check-in because I forgot to tell the bank I was going out of town, and they had blocked it quickly to make sure it was me using it. Hayden handled the situation professionlly without any embarrassment to me. He called the manager and the problem was quickly resolved. When we arrive at our room we were surprised at how clean and spotless it was. Plenty of room and they go out of their way to make sure the room is fully stocked with everything we could need. In the morning we went down to the "Continental " breakfast expecting pastry and coffee, but instead walked into a breakfast room with hot waffles, brand named biscuits and yogurts, pastries, coffee and tea bar, fresh fruit and juice that actually tasted like juice. The breakfast attendant was doing a terrific job, and a housekeeper headed out to start our day, took the time to welcome us and wish us a great day! Check-out was handled by "Cutie" quick and efficient. This is truly a "gem" placed between Charlotte and "Grandfather Mountain"! We will definately stay here again and I will recommend to everyone!

    « WONDERFUL HOTEL AT A REASONABLE PRICE »

    We were SO pleased with our 3-night stay here, and I am very picky! Cindy who checked us in at 2am was darling. Maria was still bringing out food to the breakfast buffet 10 minutes before closing ; late-risers could still enjoy a delicious breakfast with all the choices!! This was so unlike many hotels where you show up the last half hour, and everything is picked over. This year we have been in hotels about once/month and this was the best breakfast buffet (variety and quality) all year (several steps above the average!) Thank you, Maria, for caring so much about your guests. Checkout was at noon rather than 11am. They had a beautiful pool and workout room. Even though the carpet was dated, it must get shampooed regularly (no bad smell.) In fact, the whole place was sparkling clean. Nice furniture, décor, and a very comfortable bed. All this and reasonably priced as well. It's quite obvious that this hotel has a great management team and that the employees take pride in caring for their guests in an excellent manner! My hat is off to you all! Thank you so much for a delightful stay. We will never consider another hotel when we make our visits to our son and his family.

    « Beware! »

    This is a clean, well-maintained property. Unfortunately, I cannot tolerate being charged undisclosed, extra fees at check-in. I feel I've been taken advantage of, and certainly NOT like a valued customer of any kind. After booking our room online, I called the motel to request a first floor room & to notify them we were traveling with 2 small dogs. I was told everything as all set & that my requests would be met. At check-in, I was told I would be charged $40.00 in addition to the room rate because of the dogs. If it hadn't been so late in the day (we drove for over six hours), I would have shopped for another room. If you choose to book a room at this motel, BE SURE you ask about any additional charges. That information will not be given to you voluntarily. I'll choose to do my business with a more honorable business.

    Saw this one on trip advisor with great reviews and 8 rooms available at a good price. Showed up to a half empty parking lot and the front door locked. Front door clerk let me in and told me nothing was available. Maybe because it was 1:30 am? Gave 2 stars for benefit of the doubt.

    stayed here on my way to Pisgah for hiking so I could stop at Lake James State Park. This was a great Best Western, no problems for my allergies, clean, pet free, smoke free( they do have pet friendly rooms for those lucky enough to be able to have a dog. staff was great. breakfast was really good. They had a bacon, egg and cheese biscuit that was so much better than the flopped over eggs you usually get. One tip. no elevator to the second floor, so if you have trouble with steps, stay on the first floor. I enjoyed the second floor. Staff was great.

    I highly recommend Best Western in Hickory, NC to anyone traveling in that area. It restored my faith in Best Western, as I have not had very good experiences in the last few visits in other cities. I was impressed with the staff, housekeeping, cleanliness of the outside, lobby, room, and the workers. Often, I have to call the desk repeatedly for something or to remind the staff that I did not get what was requested. Not during this stay!!!

    « Nice Place - Excellent Staff »

    I like to stay at Best Westerns because they are all different. With some chains, you can't tell where you are. Most BW's have a nice, local flavor. They also seem to have good towels & linens and excellent WiFi. Those are things I like. The BW Hickory was no exxception. Friendly, helpful staff with a warm greeting. Easy check-in. Large, clean room with microwave, refrig., coffee maker, etc. Air conditioner was quiet enough and kept the room at the desired temperature. All in all - a very nice stay.

    This is an old-fashioned BW with odd layout. Some inside corridors some outside. We had outside, but it was a covered breezeway and not exposed like some.

    « Great Choice! Don't hesitate, make a reservation! »

    Can't say enough positive about the Best Western in Hickory! From the minute we checked in until the morning we checked out we had nothing but a positive experience. We were greeted on arrival by Jonathon, a super friendly and pleasant young man. It's just what we needed after a 10 hour drive. Our room was ready and it took no time at all to get our keys. Our room was on ground level and faced the pool...PERFECT!! The room and bathroom were spotless and the air conditioning worked great (my daughter would say it worked too well!). There was free WiFi, a sanitized remote for the TV, lots of towels, pillows, good lighting, small fridge, microwave and coffee maker. The room rate included breakfast which is available in the main lobby from 6-10am. There was lots of fresh coffee, juice, fruit, cereal, breads, sweets, make your own waffles, egg dishes (omelets?) that could be microwaved, enough to have a good start to your day. Check out was quick and accurate. I'd definitely stay here again if I'm ever in Hickory again.

    Hotel appeared nice an was pleased until we awoke itching and heavily bitten an caught fleas off our bodies then upon questioning staff found out we had been placed in a pet friendly room without knowing it.

In their defense the room appeared well cleaned and fleas are hard to see but caution to any potential guests make sure you tell them you don't want a pet friendly room.

    This is a nice Hotel with courteous and helpful staff. It is clean and they provide a self-service breakfast with many options. For those in a rush, you always have the option of breakfast on the go. The room was neat and clean and the room service was excellent. As with most hotels the bed was very cosy. The only thing lacking is an elevator. So if you have your room on the upper floor and you have a lot of luggage then it is quite a bit of effort. Overall I was satisfied with my stay out here and I look forward to being here again.

    « A little dissapointed after reading all the other reviews »

    This hotel was fine okay everything was clean, the beds were fine, the breakfast was fine, the service was fine, the staff was fine but it was just that fine. I can not complain about everything being fine for under 100.00 per night but some how from the reviews I expected exceptional. This was an older hotel that had been renovated no odors, everything worked but I guess I was hoping for a little pampering. I would highly recommend this hotel for someone traveling with pets as they still had external entrances and although I was pet free on this trip having a door to the outside with your pet is as good as it gets. So to be fair if I was traveling with a pet I would have given the hotel a 4 instead of a 3.

    « Great stop-over »

    We had planned to drive to Morganton to stay the night, but were tuckered out and ended up in Hickory. We typically stay at the Hampton inn, but were a little lost and ended up driving by this Best Western and giving it a try. The front desk staff were very friendly and courteous. They gave some good sight-seeing advice and helped us obtain milk for our toddler. The room itself was very clean and comfortable. I felt comfortable bathing my child in the bathtub without cleaning it out first myself (a first!) I had forgotten many essentials so used the hotel samples and found them to be very nice quality as well! The breakfast the next day stayed open until 9, giving us plenty of time to leisurely get up in the morning, and there was a great variety of make your own waffles, baked goods, breakfast sandwiches, fruit, yogurt, and cereal. Altogether a great experience and about $20-30 less than the rooms I typically stay in.

    Stop number 2 of the college tour. This hotel was very nice, conveniently located off the interstate and tons of places to eat or shop nearby. The staff was friendly, beds comfortable and rooms were quiet. Our room was not a suite, not sure that is an option here - but it was definitely adequate for the three of us. The beds were double, not queen - but comfy. The breakfast was typical continental free....so adequate but not awesome. They did have some fresh fruit which was nice. Blueberries and strawberries to put on cereal or waffles. This hotel was busy, which is a good sign!

    « Very nice stay. »

    I had called to make reservations and in doing so, I told the operator that I was bringing my dog on this trip. She began telling me that they charge and extra $20, nonrefundable. I said it was fine, because I had no one to keep her. I informed them that she is a seven pound Maltese and she gets very nervous if she hears someone in the room beside us. To my surprise, they had put us on the end with no one in the room beside us. It was so very nice to stay with our baby girl with no barking at all. She quickly began to find her spot at the bottom of the bed and she was asleep before we were. I had even left her blanket on the bottom of the bed, called the hotel and they had it waiting on me at the front desk as we were still in the area. The was not our first time at this Best Western, as my Mom lives in the area, and it won't be our last. The staff are always so nice and friendly. I so enjoy staying here and it is 17 miles from my Mom.

    « Noisy »

    I went by other trip advisor reviews. They failed me, also the rating is wrong. When you drive up, it doesnt appear to be the old kind of hotel that you have outside door rooms. There is no elevator. Rooms are far from front desk. The air conditioner went on and off like a jet plane, even when i had put it on constant fan. It did appear as clean as it could be.

    « No surprises, very nice campus feel. »

    Hotel was quiet, clean, smoke free, decent mattress (not fantastic, but perfectly respectable and not too firm, thank you), friendly staff and no surprises. All we were looking for in an stop over. The landscaping was mulched very nicely with paths - surprising for a hotel of this caliber and we could access our room directly from the lot which is always handy. The breakfast included the usual carb items and also waffles and was pleasantly surprised to find omelets in the fridge next to the yogurt ready to heat in microwave - thanks. Coffee was good. I would certainly stay here again and for the price point I would give it 5 stars though it is no luxury hotel by any means.

    I have stayed at this hotel several times. Usually I stay for a period of one week or longer. The staff are friendly and very helpful. My room has always been clean and comfortable. Breakfast is good and if you need a snack or a bottle of water during the evening they provide these items at no extra charge. When visiting Hickory, NC, I would always choose to stay at this hotel.

    The hotel is pet friendly which was one of the main reason for the visit. The outside is nothing outstanding but the landscape is well kept and very clean. The rooms are very nice. I was extremely surprised and very pleased. I would definitely recommend not to mention price is right.

    Everyone was friendly and extremely helpful. The 2 young ladies at the desk went out of their way to get us info and directions. We were looking for something specific and they certainly exceeded our expectations. We have stayed at many BW's and never have encountered this type of service with every associate we encountered.

    « Nice place to stay & Good breakfast »

    I have stayed at Best Western many times and have had good luck every time. Can't beat the free breakfast and coffee. Very nice staff always helpful with just about anything, Extra blankets and foam pillows in room as asked for. Great deal for the price. As simple as the coffee and breakfast free puts other hotels to shame. Very much appreciated. Will always look to stay with them over other brands.

    « Fabulous staff »

    Mixed facility with indoor rooms as well as outside motel style rooms. All well maintained, with carpets shampooed on a regular basis, as experienced by being awoken to them cleaning a neighboring room. While breakfast was not hot, a nice variety of prepackaged products were available for heating in the microwave. Plus there was a fruit salad, fresh cut strawberries, blueberries, a variety of yogurts (brands and types!), instant oatmeal and grits packets, regular and strawberry cream cheese, peanut butter, Nutella, butter, juices, coffee, tea,...I could go on In the evenings they offered a variety of fresh baked cookies or popcorn...and the milk and juice was available all day. :) When a light bulb blew in my room, Meghan immediately replaced it. This is typical of the service provided...all above and beyond expectations.

    At first sight, I thought the hotel looked like a converted Motel. It was updated a bit and clean. It has no elevator that I saw so be prepared to walk up. The included breakfast had various cold items, a waffle maker and other items that needed to be microwaved. Not what I expected but ok. Staff was extremely nice and welcoming. The rooms were clean and updated. Beds were double and quite small.

    Really nice facility and staff. The best thing about it is its location: right at the conference center, next door to the cafeteria, close to eateries and other places, easy to find and to get to. You can't ask for a nicer staff, and the place is clean and pretty. The room is a little cramped and the bathroom is tiny, but they loved my dog and I'll definitely stay there again.

    « Nice stay »

    The hotel is nice. Beds are comfortable. I found a couple pieces of hair in between the sheets which was gross. The breakfast wasn't all that great. They make the waffle batter to watery. The orange juice was nasty. The hotel is surrounded by tons of restaurants though.

    « Best Towels »

    I travel alot for work, and I can say that this hotel has luxery towels.....so great. Overall experience has been good. Room was clean, clean linens, appears that maybe there were some room upgrades as the bathroom was very nice. Love a full length mirror near lighting for clothing check and putting on makeup. Easy to find and lots of restaurants nearby. Hair dryer, microwave, and fridge in the room. Large flat screen tv complimented the two bed room. Stairs were well lighted and rooms open to the outside. Smoking room which I requested did not smell of smoke. Check in was a bit strange. No one at desk and when I gently called "hello", I was greeted by a voice in the back admonishing me for interrupting their taking of a reservation. So, waited quietly thereafter. She was not real friendly, but it could have been worse. Maid did a great job the first day, second day I found the toiletries just dumped on the counter.

    « Great Surprise »

    We spent two nights at this Best Western in Hickory. What a pleasant surprise. This Best Western is well kept and clean. Our room was very nice and the bed was very comfy. We have passed through Hickory but never stayed so finding this BW was great for us. When we asked the desk for directions to a covered bridge they gave us an index card with the directions on it...what a great idea! The cards were helpful and saved a lot of time looking possibility in the wrong direction.

    this best western met out needs perfectly, just needing a place to stay for one night. it was pleasant, clean, and the staff was polite and helpful. it was a little bit noisy, being beside I40, however, when the door is closed, the noise was not a problem. the breakfast was convenient and suitable. had good choices, including refrigerated items to be microwaved. we found the staff at check in and check out both very nice.

    « Some good some bad »

    Several very positive things -- price, location, clean room, and a large spread for a "continental breakfast" (fresh fruit, yogurt, dry cereal plus oatmeal/grits, breakfast sandwiches to warm in microwave, waffles, breads/sweet breads, juices, etc.). We weren't so impressed with the initial service. No one was at the desk for check in. We waited for a long period of time and finally started calling "hello, hello?" Someone answered and SLOWLY made their way to the desk. We also had real trouble getting the heat to regulate. Although we kept lowering the thermostat (down to 59 degrees), we were sweltering and had difficulty sleeping. I believe the thermostat must have been right next to the window on a cold night . . . we finally turned the heat off completely at 2am and slept comfortably after that. The next morning, a shower was disappointing when the drain trickled and the tub filled with soapy water throughout the shower.

    One night getaways can be the bomb... This location has plenty of good restaurants within walking distance of the Hotel..When we stayed there was not a lot of foot traffic.. which made check-in very easy.. This facility only has two floors...No elevator..hopefully you will not have a lot of luggage and stay multiple days...I usually prefer a high floor hotel.. I did not research well.. I found this out at check-in...

    I have nothing but wonderful comments to make about staying here. From check in to check out it was amazing. Everyone was super polite. My room was great and spacious. Breakfast seemed okay. I am unable to eat continental breakfasts because of the wheat/gluten. However they had breakfast sandwiches, bread, bagels, hard boiled eggs, yogurts, waffles, cereal, juice, etc. it was all neat and not messy. I would definitely stay here again because of their kindness. :)

    « Disappointing Stay »

    My husband and I reviewed this hotel on Trip Advisor. The other reviewers must have stayed in a different hotel than we did. The part we stayed in was old and wasn't keep up as well as stated from other guests. There did seem to be a newer part to the hotel which might have been better. The noise from the highway was loud but the noise from the people cleaning the rooms rolling the laundry bins and trash cans sounded like planes landing. You could see light around the entire door. Breakfast was frozen eggs or breakfast burrito that you microwave, they did have fruit and waffles and cereal. My husband was quoted one price but we charged another. I asked about it and was told no that was the rate, but he had to go in before we checked out and remind them of the rate. It's not on our list to go back to.

    My husband and i stopped here on our way to the mountains for a weekend getaway. To my surprise, this hotel was nice and clean. I don't know why i thought other wise, but i did. The receptionist at the front desk was nice and polite. The hallway and staircase leading to our room was very clean, you could smell that the hotel was clean. Our room was the same nice and clean.

    After leaving the disaster of a motel called American Motel, we found this hotel. Very clean. Microwave, fridge, big TV. The TV button was in a fresh bag. The beds were comfy and the pillows were fluffy and soft! There were plenty of towels for my family of four. The staff was super friendly. I'm a foodie, so I pay attention to the food served. It was good. They had a good variety. Plenty of coffee served 24 hours! Bagels, SE biscuits, SE with pancakes instead of a biscuit, grits, waffles, cereal, fruit. They also give military discounts, which is sweet and respectful to my veteran husband. It was too cold for the pool, but it was clean and it was a beautiful area to sit at. My family enjoyed our stay here, and would most definitely stay again! My sweet kids left the staff a happy note. I hope it made them smile. They certainly made us happy with great accommodations.

    This hotel is not motorcycle friendly. We were told that we were told allowed to leave our bike under the canopy and were threatened with having it towed even though it was only out there for a few moments while we went to our room to leave our bags. There was no sign and we would not told any different while we checked in. She was extremely rude about it and we will not be back at this hotel. Too bad since this hotel is extremely close to the Harley dealership.

    No acknowledgement of my Best Western Rewards Diamond Elite status. Room was a rear outside room not convenient to the lobby, in an area of construction and provided a view of the portable toilet. Staff indifferent to my request for upgraded room. Later killed a bug in the room and next morning saw another live bug. Based on the the staff indifference to customer service and the insects in the room, I can not recommend this property.

    « Not up to Best Western standards »

    I chose to stay at this property partly based on its claimed Trip Advisor rating. That was a mistake. Despite my Diamond rewards status, there was no acknowledgement of my brand loyalty, no room upgrade. Instead, my room was at the rear of the motel with a view of a portable toilet and far from the lobby. There was no effort to change rooms when the front desk person was made aware of my displeasure with the room. Later in the evening, my wife killed a bug in the room and , next morning, we saw another. Overall, I can not recommend this motel as being other than a below average property whose staff is unconcerned with customer service.

    I came for 3 nights to attend a local writer's conference, and overall, I was quite pleased with Best Western Hickory. The front desk staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. My room was recently renovated and included a very comfortable king-size bed, a desk, microwave and mini-fridge, HDTV with HBO, and a spacious bathroom. Everything appeared clean and new. The free in-room internet was quite adequate and there is a "business center" off the lobby if you need a desktop or printer. Free breakfast was appreciated and included a make-our-own waffle station, fresh fruit and even eggs (hard-boiled only), but some items could have been better: the dispensed orange juice was quite sour, and the bagels and pastry were clearly packaged rather than freshly-baked. The lobby was inviting, but a few things like the fire doors could use a little touch-up. The hotel is very convenient - right of I-40 and just a short drive to town. (Warning: Hickory is a nice town with good restaurants, music and arts and an attractive town square, but the way the streets are numbered and named makes it confusing to get around.)
