    « Cheap & Clean »

    We stayed at this hotel to be near family for my husband's grandmother's funeral. It was cheap and clean which suited our purposes. We didn't stay very long at the hotel, but the staff was friendly. We had an issue with our A/C and the maintenance man came right away and fixed it. Breakfast could be reviewed and updated.

    « Good room good breakfast »

    Room was good except could use more water pressure in shower and microwave was broken. We were by breakfast area so used theirs. They did mess up reservation and was charging to someone else but got straight hopefully. Breakfast offerings goodie me. Bagels good and normal sized blueberry and banana nut muffins good. Fruit cups nice offering too. They had other usual stuff too.

    « Nice place to stay with great breakfast »

    We stayed here once on the way to Pt Canaveral and then on the way back. Both times this hotel is very nice and has a really great breakfast. The staff is always very nice and accommodating. We did our laundry in their facility. They had correct change available as well as products. A nice choice for this area away from Tallahassee by just a bit to avoid all the traffic.

    « Great Stay at a Great Rate »

    Hotel was clean and cozy. Staff was attentive at check-in and during our stay. Room was clean, bed was extremely comfortable (as per the wife). Mini-Fridge in room was working, as was the TV and climate control. Will stay here again if I find myself needing a room in the area.

    « Very nice accommodations, but mediocre breakfast »

    Rooms were clean and spacious, modern and attractive. We enjoyed the free upgrade to the suite. The eggs, sausage, waffles and yogurt were all fine. The orange juice, pastries and tea selection were sub par compared to other locations.

    « Great Stay »

    Loved it here! My friends and I stayed here for FAMU's homecoming weekend and it was only 20 minutes away from everything. Nice staff, clean place to sleep, I loved it! The bed was humongous, the bathroom was very clean, and we loved that the room was bigger than expected and for the priced we paid per night.

    « Nice Stay »

    We got in late and the lady was friendly and fast. The room took no time to cool off. Beds and pillows were comfy. The had a play pen for the baby to sleep in. The water pressure was not very good. The breakfast was nice. All in all a nice stay. Will return!

    « Very welcoming! »

    Friendly Front Desk Staff welcomed us and we had a nice conversation with her right off the bat!. Room was clean and the bed was comfortable. I slept soundly my first night! That never happens in a hotel. Breakfast had a nice variety and provided healthier choices!

    « Great option for large pets »

    We needed a place to stay after evacuating for Hurricane Matthew. It was quite difficult to find a place for our dogs, > 25 pounds and an accessible room. This Best Western was a much needed reprieve as it was able to handle both. There's even a pool lift. Kay greeted us warmly and had some dog treats our our pets upon arrival. The rooms were very comfortable and quiet. The breakfast got us off to a good start as we made our way home. I wish the extra charge for pets would be a deposit instead of a fee. If no problems, it would be great to have that refunded.

    « Great For FSU Gameday »

    My family and I stayed here on a FSU game weekend. Hotel was clean and staff was very friendly. Good continental breakfast. Less than 10 minutes to stadium. Don't let the beer bar in front run you off. The hotel is a good deal.

    « Home away from home »

    Excellent location. Great staff, always courteous and professional. The go out of the way to suggest visiting places of interest as well as places to dine. I've stayed at this hotel for the past 15years whenever I'm in town.

    « Comfortable stay »

    We stayed here due to Hurricane Hermine. The breakfast was good, beds were comfortable and the room was clean. The staff was also very friendly and accommodating. Although I live close by and don't anticipate having to stay here anytime soon, I would stay here again if need be!

    « Super clean and good breakfast »

    Staying here because of Hurricane Hermine and no power at my home in Tallahassee. Kay at the front desk was exceptionally friendly and helpful. She had just had a cancellation so my neighbor was also able to get a room. Hotel booked to capacity. Everyone was so thankful after 2 nights of trying to sleep without AC. Property is exceptionally clean and well cared for. Breakfast was good this morning and well stocked. Coffee available 24/7. Overall great place to stay and only 10 miles on the interstate to Tallahassee. Easy to find right off I-10. I plan on staying until my power comes back on!

    « Avoiding Tallahassee Traffic »

    Dropping daughter off at college. Chose this location because of the promise of avoiding traffic. It was a little farther away from FSU campus than I anticipated. Good overall stay. The clerk at the desk when I checked in was friendly, efficient and went out of her way to insure that guests have everything they need. She serves as a good brand ambassador.

    « Don't let the surrounding business influence your stay »

    We had a few concerns upon arrival due to a few reviews. I did not observe any threat at or near this property. This is a good place to stay in the area bs price. The room was clean and comfortable. Good staff

    « Nice Hotel »

    Very convenient and staff very polite. After a tiring day, it was nice to find this hotel and come into a clean and comfortable room. Can't say anything negative about it. Definitely will come back when traveling through.

    « Exceeded expectations »

    From the moment I walked in the door, Kay made me feel like a valued customer. The lobby and room were very clean. The room was big and made me feel as if I should be paying more for my stay. Lots of amenities pool, fitness center, laundry room and business center.

    « My "Go to" from now on.... »

    I absolutely was satisfied with this stay! I was there for a meeting and drove from Texas to be there. Since I had a car it was fine being that it's about 15 minutes down the road to the city of Tallahassee. It was clean and the staff was friendly. The breakfast is my favorite feature and they were absolutely on point with it. After a stressful meeting, I came back to the room, ordered food (from Viva cafe), and went to sleep! I will always stay here when in Tallahassee. The hotels in the actual city are a hit or miss. If I don't have a car, I will über around town just to stay here.

    « Great place »

    Our family really enjoyed our stay! We were a last minute reservation, due to our daughter playing late in a softball tournament, but staff was very accommodating and easy to work with. Breakfast was great and the teens loved the hot cookies served in the evening ??

    « Clean, great customer service »

    The hotel was very nice, clean and had a very friendly staff. Noticed a strange chemical type odor in the room, they were very accommodating. It is a quiet area, I travel alone with my job, I felt safe and secure here. The bed was a bit hard for my liking but it was ok.

    « Nice clean property »

    We chose this property because of the price and found that this was a very good property. The staff was very nice and the room was very comfortable and clean. I would recommend this property to friends.

    « Thanks to BWPHCIS »

    I really appreciated the staff and cleanliness of this hotel. I'm not sure I have ever stayed in a cleaner hotel room. The staff was helpful and courteous. The internet was fast. Over all I will be staying here in future trips to Tallahassee

    « Visit »

    Small gathering of family and friends welcomed with huge smiles and plenty of friendly staff throughout the hotel. Decent breakfast: waffles fruit eggs sausage coffee juice and cold cereal. Usually fare but more happy about three friendly staff fort the whole 4 day visit. Helpful with directions as well as hotel upkeep.

    « Great Stop over »

    We stayed at this Best Western on our way to South Carolina. This property is close to I-10 & is out in a rural area. At first the area looked a little sketchy, but it was not long before all was well. The lady at the front desk was very friendly & gave us ideas on places to eat. Our room was spotless & the morning breakfast was great. All of the employees we encountered were friendly. After we checked out it was really easy to get back on I-10. We will be coming through this area again in two years & this will be our place to stay.

    « employees »

    your desk clerk was very friendly and very informative. the ladies in the breakfast room was extra special we have a handicapped son and they were so understanding and the food was fantastic the coffee was great . your beds were very comfortable . all of your employees were very respectful friendly and very nice in general they made check in and check out vert fast and easy

    « Great Stay »

    The motel was very clean and the staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. I was very happy with the breakfast, a large variety of foods - I could think of nothing lacking. The only downside is that there weren't too many restaurants nearby for dinner, only Subway, Waffle House and Dennie's.

    « Beautiful Property »

    This property is in new condition. The rooms are all new and clean. This property is very well maintained. The front desk night representative, Kay, was incredible. She was extremely helpful and very nice. I highly recommend this hotel if you plan to stay anywhere near Tallahassee. They have an excellent breakfast. The property is also pet friendly!

    « motel stay »

    Very nice motel to stay in even though we only spent the night. we slept comfortable and enjoyed our stay while we were their watching television and laughing. it was a pleasant stay that we enjoyed. Got up the next morning, washed up, ate breakfast and proceeded to our destination, to Fort Pierce, Florida. feeling very relaxed from the long drive that we had before we got to mid Midway, Florida. it was a pleasant and relaxing stay.

    « Very Nice and Great hotel »

    I recently traveled to Florida for a family trip from Missouri and I must say the Hotel is very nice not a lot around but it was a enjoyable experience for myself, husband and kids . Front desk got us checked in fast when we arrived. We waited no more then 10mins and was on our way. Also Room was very clean and well kept . I meet a very Sweet and caring Housekeeper younger African American women looks like a child though think she said her name was Jameeka ,who serviced and helped us . She was the only one I seen but I can tell she is a very hard worker and has great customer service/Housekeeping skills ,She was very helpful and gave us everything extra from tissue to clean towels.Over all the hotel was good for location and price .

    « Traveling the Southern tier on a tandem bicycle. »

    Kay , was very nice, greeted us and checked us into our room. They had cookies and chex mix to eat in the lobby! Our room was clean and nice size with microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker. Coffee, reg and decaff available in the lobby. Good wfi, beds and linens. Laundry Breakfast included eggs, bacon, sausage gravy, as well as all the usual. The only complaint was our room could have used more lites, a common problem in motel rooms.

    « Clean rooms & great service »

    The room was spotless and obviously well taken care of. The complimentary breakfast was tasty and hot. The staff was friendly and almost always had freshly baked chocolate chip cookies for the guests!

    « Everything was great »

    Everything was great. Everything was clean. All of the amenities were what was expected. The staff were exceptional. The woman that was working behind the front desk was continuously offering freshly baked chocolate chip cookies.

    « Great place, nice rest »

    My first time in this Best Western. I was promptly and professionally greeted by James who made me feel very welcome. When I came back from dinner, James and me engaged in a good conversation on the area and such, making a night on my own a bit less long. I loved the shower demo however I was familiar with that kind but could see where someone might be calling the desk when they couldn't get the shower to come off tub mode. My room was clean, bed was great to sleep in, and breakfast - well they won my vote with chipped beef, biscuits, and hot sauce! My only negative is it sits back and the exit 192 as a whole does not appear to have much around though there are places to eat. I could see this as a nice place to stay if I were visiting as it is not in the mix of traffic and such with easy on/off access to I-10. I used the government/military (retired) rate. When I come back again, I will stay here.

    « No a/c in first room »

    My Hertz rental broke down getting me to the hotel about 6 hours late, at 1am. The check in put me into a room with no working a/c, no phone and no remote which I did not figure out until the next day (I crashed after I arrived and had early meetings). The next night they moved me after I went down to the desk (couldn't call), but apparently everyone knew the first room was in-op. The second room had the heat on although it was very warm outside.

    « Road trip to Tallahassee to visit family »

    Pros Clean Quiet Room! We were very happy! Friendly Staff Good place to stay overnight and sleep Comfortable Bed Cons Bathroom had a weird tub shower Needs some updating Questionable area and entrance Overall an average hotel which is expected with a Best Western

    « Missing phone and dirty BR floor »

    The telephone was simply not in the room, the desk knew about it and apparently a previous guest had ripped it and the wiring out of the wall. I spilled some water on the bathroom floor, and wiping it up with a washcloth, the cloth came up dirty. They obviously do NOT mop the BR floors.

    « reward the frontdesk lady from 03/19/16 please »

    Their Hostess went above and beyond to inquire if there were any discounts I qualified for and there was one i didn't even know they had. For government employees. I could have saved alot of money if I had known that the other times I've stayed there

    « Hotel Stay »

    Staff was very nice and professional. The hotel itself could use some updates. Location was a bit questionable - but felt better knowing state patrol was also staying at the hotel. Breakfast was average.

    « Good Alternative »

    I had stayed at the Tallahassee Plus before and it was very nice but it was just to high $$$ this time so I choose this one just a few miles away and I would highly recommend it. Clean friendly staff and a lovely breakfast.At check in,they even had an example of the shower faucet to demo -a wonderful touch since many are so different and difficult to figure out.

    « As expected »

    We expected a very good set of accommodations at this hotel and got it. Room was clean and neat. Shower was acceptable. Staff was courteous and helpful. The exterior is showing wear and age. We had no trouble getting in or out of the property.

    « Good rate »

    Good rate, easy on and off. Quiet. Breakfast is really good. Not much around as far as food but there is a Dennys close. Stayed 6 nights so far and have good experiences. Staff is friendly. Wifi is good. Grandson usually visits weight room.

    « Back again, Same Great Service-Stay »

    I returned to this hotel while working in this area and the service remains excellent. The care and concern for me during my stay is evident at check in and also when checking out. I have recommended this hotel to my team and will return again soon.

    « Great »

    I would stay in this hotel again and recommend anyone in this area needing a hotel to stay here. Very good value for money. They say i have to have 200 characters so here is some more characters to make 200

    « satisifatied »

    our check in and check out went very smoothly. The clerks were dressed very well and were appeared to bo be pleased to service the customers. breakfast went well,, but the day was made by the lady taking care of everyone. she was happy and had a kind word for all.

    « Great overnight stay! »

    Stayed here with my family on our way to Orlando from Louisiana. It was a very easy, quick stop off of the interstate, and was very easy access back to the interstate the next morning. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the room was clean. Breakfast was OK. We had a little trouble regulating the temperature in our room, which would be my only complaint. It was very cold outside that night, and our room stayed pretty cold most of the night as well. We still plan on stopping here again for future trips!

    « Dirty room bad location »

    The bathroom floor was sticky as were the table tops - the room had obviously not been cleaned. The hotel is located at the edge of a field; the only thing nearby was a liquor store and chicken take-out. There were only 2 cars in the parking lot. We didn't like the "feel" of the situation so checked out ---- only to discover we would not get a refund because we checked out after the 4pm cancellation deadline! No help from the manager. Avoid this place!

    « Great overnight stop »

    Stopped here overnight on our way to Orlando after reading several positive reviews here. Very nice, clean, and quiet hotel. We did have a little trouble controlling the temperature in our room - it was very cold when we arrived in the night, and, despite running the heater all night, the room never seemed to warm up much. Decent continental breakfast to start our day. We will most probably stop here again on our next trip!

    « Quick Mid Roadtrip Overnight »

    We needed a halfway stop between central FL and New Orleans. This hotel was almost exactly halfway and was an easy stop off I-10. We booked last minute at a decent rate, the room it was clean and the hotel was quite. This location was a perfect stop for a quick overnight and then back on the road.

    « Nice place! »

    Good, solid hotel stay with terrific hot breakfast. Place was very clean and the lady at the front desk was friendly and very helpful. The hotel sits back far enough from I-10 to not hear busy traffic noise but close enough to hop back on quickly.

    « Pleasantly surprised »

    Such a great place. Everyone was so nice. I am a hotel snob and this place was definitely clean and up to par. The bed was a little hard, but all in all it wash great! I will stay again. I am platinum with Best Western and was treated very nicely

    « A very nice hotel »

    This hotel came recommended by a co-worker and after reading the reviews I was a bit hesitant to try it, but since it was central to the places I was working for a couple of days I decided to give it a try. And let me tell ya, I am glad that I did. I walked in and it was already dark but the hotel and parking lot are nicely and attractively lit up. The front desk clerk was very nice and made sure that I was comfortable. If you look close you can see some signs that it needs a refresh in their color scheme and what not but all in all I found it to be a nice hotel. Plenty of space. Comfortable bed. Good food in the mornings for breakfast. I really didn't experience any of the problems that is read about in other reviews. Food can be a bit of a challenge as there isn't much right by the hotel but there are plenty of choices within 10 minutes. Very close to the interstate but it was still far enough that it was quite. If the need ever arises for me to be in area for work again I'll stay there again.

    « Hotel needs to be updated »

    The hotel need to be updated with appliances. Having the coffee maker and ice bucket in the restroom was a huge turnoff. My room smelled as if it was a smoking room and it said non-smoking. I wouldn't stay again unless i know it was updated. The clerk was very nice and friendly. My complaint was only the hotel and not the staff.

    « Good for overnight pet friendly »

    Amenities appropriate to pet travel. Not much going on in Midway, but it is an excellent choice if travelling with pets and you want to avoid the noise and traffic associated with Tallahassee. Great proximity to the interstate.

    « Unknown Jewel »

    Having been on the road for almost 4 weeks & this was my last night before home. Made a reservation that morning & got in that evening. The clerk at checkin was very welcoming & went out of her way to make sure our room was satisfactory. Great bed, clean room & a good breakfast bar. This facility is a hidden gem for the weary traveler. Highly recommended.

    « Dirty Underware »

    Hotel is dated, but room was inviting upon arrival. Then when I went to use bathroom, and closed the door, there was a dirty pair of underwear behind the door on the floor. Cleaning staff missed it and the rest of the night was ruined feeling icky in the bed like what else might not have been cleaned.

    « Nice folks man the front desk »

    A few years ago this place would have been tops! However time has taken its toll. The crud that accumulates over time presents itself in the corners of the bathroom. Decor is okay but bed skirts are wrinkled and sheets are dingy--both signs of wear. I had 20% off with AAA and best western "club" which brought nightly fee to under $99 which makes it a modest value. If you don't want to deal with city traffic stay here. Food is available after a short 4-5 mile drive on 90; this place is a bit isolated. (Liquor store within walking distance.). It is an easy on and off I-10.

    « stop over on travel inflorida »

    this best western did not live up to our other stays breakfast was not large and eating area was small and crowded. room was clean bed was nice.motel was out in the middle of nowhere had nard time finding food place to eat at.


    This hotel opened up for the Miami game and we jumped on it. Hey, being 20 minutes from Doak beats 51 minutes, right? WRONG! The only positive about this hotel is Tramayne, who works day and night. As for the actual hotel, it was next door to a liquor store in B.F.E. on a one road enter, one road exit street. We got blocked in one time by the alcoholics and a semi competing for the road. The lobby was iffy at best. The room was cold, like the windows were not sealed. The shower, besides being the most complicated to turn on, was small and I had to wait for towels. And the bed lines were icky! Like I said, I will be driving the hour after our next game in Tally!

    « Very dirty »

    When I walked into the room I noticed that the dresser drawers were slightly ajar. I learned that they don't close because the top one is broken off the rail. The closet door on the other hand opens only with great exertion and using both hands. I almost ruined shirt with the iron. Fortunately, I tried the iron on the ironing board to check the temperature and discovered that it was absolutely filthy with grime. The carpet is dark but that may not be the color. Something stuck on my foot from the carpet. When I went to wipe it off, I saw that the bottom of my foot was black with dirt from the carpet. I noted old cornflakes stuck to the carpet at the foot of the bed. I used a washcloth to wipe the bathroom floor and saw a disgusting yellowish color. I am bald, so I know that the 8 inch long black hairs in the tub and on the wall in the bathroom are not mine. I have accumulated over 50,000 Best Western points this year alone. I stay a lot of hotels. Typically, Best Western hotels are very clean. This property is a notable exception.

    « Excelent »

    Would stay there again. Very nice person at desk. Helped with the handicap room. breakfast was nice; we didn't have to stop again to eat. Husband got to get a shower because of the walkin shower that was in our room. Conviently put in a room that faced a door going out of hotel. I have to everything myself and it was very nice stay.

    « Good Place to stay near Talllahassee »

    Good Place to stay near tallahassee. Staff goes out if their way to be coutious and helpfull. We always enjoy our visits there and it's convenient to tallahassee florida. Only a 15 minute drive to tallahassee, and minutes from I-10

    « Outside Tallahasee »

    easy location to get to, avoiding all the traffic of Tallahassee. Large parking lot new building, friendly & helpful staff, all around pleasant stay. Great value for the money. Only one restaurant within a quarter mile, a Waffle House. Recommend researching dinning before arriving & ask staff for recommendations, they are helpful.

    « Great choice for Travellers »

    I would recommend this place. Most of the BW locations we stayed out were consistent in their cleanliness and the quality of the rooms. The breakfast offerings were substantial. They were very helpful.

    « Ehhh »

    We arrived at this hotel after booking on a hotel app only to be told that we did not have a reservation. Not happy with that app. It was not through TripAdvisor. We won't make that mistake again! The property was full. However Miss Linda at the front desk was extremely helpful and took pity on two weary travelers! She was so nice and courteous, did a little rearranging and found us a room. Thank you Linda. Our room was adequate and clean. Breakfast was offered but not impressive. Or as my husband put it, "worst breakfast ever". The young man working the breakfast area was rude and refused to answer any questions. He simply walked away when we and other guests tried to ask a question. Not sure that we would stay here again. When traveling back to Tallahassee we will plan ahead and book at one of the many other hotels.
