    « A great stop! »

    Great customer service, very attentive staff. Supper clean, comfortable place that offer breakfast for those who want to stay for a little bit or are just passing like my family. We recharged our batteries to continue our trip back home safely.

    « Nice Suprise »

    So pulling up in the middle of the night in the middle of a corn field I was like what am I getting in too. " Is this a best western? I looks like a 70's Super 8 from the out side?" Check it out, clean outside, nice clean lobby, Staff was not the most friendly but it was 3 am when I checked in. SO I will give him a pass. Get to the room and bam. Everything looks shinny and new. Nice design, smelled good, clean. I was surprised.

    « A beacon in the dark of night »

    This facility has been recently renovated: paint, carpet, furniture, etc. The breakfast was the correct temperature, plentiful, and tasty!!! The night auditor checked us in the middle of the dark hours with a welcoming joy displayed with his voice and manner. Having read a few of the previous reviews that were less complimentary than this one, check this location out again. We would happily stop here again, even if we checked in earlier than 1:30 a.m. We fell into bed and slept wonderfully with lots of hot water to revive us for further journeying in the morn. The check-out team was super, also.

    « Nice Little Inn »

    This is a small hotel in a small town - it is right off the interstate and easily located. There isn't much to eat around but there is a Wendy's you can walk to easily from the hotel. Reception was warm, friendly and the clerk efficient. The lobby is smallish but it does include a comfortable, nicely decorated sitting area. The room seemed clean, fresh and new. Carpet was in super shape and the walls painted a very soft blue. The dark brown accents made for a serene, atmosphere. I liked the abundance of landing places for luggage - there was a particularly capacious deep bench in the room. The AC worked perfectly and the bed was comfortable. We had a ground floor room since the hotel does not have an elevator and I did hear people walking above me at 2300 but they soon settled down. Breakfast was simple but sufficient: egg and sausage patties (no bacon when we stayed), bread and sweet rolls, yogurt, cereal and a waffle maker. The coffee was a solid middle of the road blend and the OJ was more of an orange drink but it did the job. All in all this was a nice stay.

    « BE BACK IN 10 MINUTES »

    That will be the only complaint that you will hear from me. Staff was very helpful and everything was as it should be. The pool was clean and refreshing, the room was clean and tidy, breakfast was super.The only thing was when I checked in and when I checked out I had to wait about ten minutes (like the little sign said).

    « Great Value »

    Great value, only 2 stories and no elevator but otherwise awesome. Morning staff was super helpful with us using a Best Western rewards card. Its a good location for us to visit our daughter at Kenyon College in Gambier.

    « Love the bacon »

    This hotel is close to the highway but very quiet. This is the second time we stay at this hotel. The room is in good condition (they were under renovation when we stayed the first time). The breakfast option is limited, but they do have the bacon.

    other than the check in experience when I checked in this best western was actually very nice. The rooms where clean and decorated pretty nice. the lobby was clean and the breakfast was sufficient too.

    « Everything I Expected »

    Nice, clean, reasonably priced, efficient, sufficient, slightly more than a continental breakfast included with a waffle maker, coffee, juice, pre-made egg rounds, biscuits, gravy, cereal, milk, sausage, bacon, muffins, doughnuts, pastries, etc. Wi-fi worked well. Easy to get to from the main highways. Reasonably priced with comfortable beds and a good shower. Would recommend this hotel if passing through this way.

    « Overnight stay »

    My husband and I were traveling back to Buffalo, New York after a long drive from Nashville . We needed a place to stay after finding that there was absolutely nothing in and around Columbus . We found the Best Western executive Inn to be available, clean, pleasant , new and comfortable . There was a small fridge and microwave in the room and all amenities needed. Would highly recommend for an overnight when you are tired from driving.

    « Clean »

    This motel was clean and peaceful. There is fast food very close. Some rooms have a refrig and microwave, but not all of them have both. The staff was very helpful and offered to help with our luggage.

    « Highly Recommended »

    I can't say enough good things about my recent stay at the Best Western motel in Mount Gilead, Ohio. To begin with, when I called to make reservations, my requests were very specific, as I was traveling with my disabled Mom. Every need was met and every question was answered in detail by Carol, the always-friendly desk person who took my reservation. When we arrived, Carol helped us check in a little early (not necessary, but it helped a lot), explained everything to us, and helped me get my tablet connected to the motel's wi-fi. The room was completely clean and comfortable, the free breakfast was delicious and well-maintained, and the rest of the staff was very friendly and helpful. I've stayed at many motels over the years, and I'm rarely treated to customer service of this high level. Best Western in Mount Gilead does everything right.

    « Disappointing »

    We do lots of road trips. In order to simplify our hotel reservations, we decided on this trip to only stay at Best Westerns. This worked great until yesterday. I was looking for a Best Western and found this one with an advertised price if $74 for a room. Tried to book for that night w no luck. Called Best Western and the rate was $175!!! Military discount was $152...:( We booked and arrived about midnight. Drove past it twice in the dark looking for a tall BW sign. Finally spotted it with a ground level sign set back from the road. No elevator, so we had to schlep our bags up. Tiny bath. 1 small shampoo/con combo, 1 tiny bar of soap. Continental breakfast...meh. Room very basic. Very unimpressed. Only bright spot was Nathan, the night clerk. He helped us get pizza delivered and offered to help me with my bags. Paid more than enough for an executive level BWestern experience. This was not it!

    « Newly remodeled »

    I had stayed at this location about a year ago. It was acceptable at that time, but now it has been remodeled. Everything was much nicer including the breakfast. As expected though, the price did go up.

    « Right off main Rd. »

    Hotel was not bad. They have refurbished the hotel in the last couple of months. Everything was very clean. The one thing I noticed is the shower/bathtub is very cheap. I felt like it wasn't very secure....cheap plastic. Other then that it was a good one night. Breakfast was good, eggs, sausage, biscuits, waffle maker, were the hot items, and then they had the usual breads and pastries and cold cereal, oatmeal, juices, fresh fruit, yogurt. There was something you could definitely find to eat to start your day.

    « EXCELLENT- Newly Renovated - Great value »

    We like staying outside the city and this was an excellent choice. The staff was very friendly, the beds new and very comfortable. The facility has been totally renovated, crisp, clean and convenient to the interstate. The breakfast offerings were great! Waffles, eggs, sausage, rolls, biscuits and choice of beverages. Do not hesitate to stay here!!!

    « FANTASTIC! »

    Pulled in at 1030pm looking for somewhere clean to sleep. Beyond expectations! Freshly renovated. Quiet. The rooms are quite lush,new mattress, towels, new key card entry. There was even a disinfected remote in a bag. BWish every stay could be like this. Hot breakfast was very good, even a waffle maker. Very quiet area so I turn fan of a/c unit, it had a little rumble.

    « OK place too stay »

    Breakfast area too small. Breakfast foods were ok. They did not serve real eggs. Room rate was too high for being under construction. Rooms were clean. Beds are firmer. One room smelled like cigarette smoke even though the building is non smoking.

    « watch out children over 12 charged extra $10 fee each, even using existing bedding! »

    Very disappointing! Book this hotel through trip advisor not realizing when the site didn't allow me to add children we would be charged extra $20 upon arrival. Beware your kids are adults at age 12 here. Remolding and horrible paint smell. No elevator so you have to drag your lugage up the stairs. Hallways full of work materials ect...Beds don't even have fitted sheets, just flat sheet with a hole in it over mattress pad. You must ask for more blankets because no comforter on beds. Would have moved to another hotel if any were avaliable.Will be avoiding Best Western hotels in the future. Will be inquiring with BBB.

    « Would stay again »

    From the outside you might not chose this hotel, but we were pleasantly surprised. Very nice, would stay again. 4 pillows are not enough on the King beds. the breakfast was nice, conveniently off the high way, right next to a mall if you need anything.

    « Middle of nowhere Ohio »

    I have stayed at Best Western hotels in my travels to California and for the price the one in Gilead Ohio was way overpriced for the location and what they don't offer. The hotels need to revamp all their rooms not just the ones in California. I would not stay at this hotel again, the Super 8 we moved to after 1 night in this hotel was much better than the one in Gilead. Cleaner, better room amenities and set up better for travel with two small kids.

    « Very nice, excellent value. »

    I spent a night in this hotel while my daughter was doing an overnight visit to Mount Vernon Nazarene University, about a half hour away. It was an excellent stay. I was particularly impressed by two things: an excellent hot breakfast, with good protein choices, and an extremely friendly staff. I was consistently greeted pleasantly by every member of the staff I encountered during my brief stay. Kudos to the staff training and expectations by the management. The basics were all there as well -- a clean, comfortable, spacious room with several amenities. The only small complaint I had was that the desk was positioned so that the power strip mounted on it could not actually be plugged into a wall outlet. This did not actually create a problem for me as my laptop cord is long, but a guest might have to move the desk in order to use the power on it. The location is also good -- it is very close to I-71, but positioned so that there is no highway noise in the rooms, even on the side closest to the interstate. The view is not great but not unpleasant. The location is somewhat remote, being several miles outside the nearest small town, and about 45 minutes from the Columbus area. There are a few fast-food places and gas station/convenience stores in the immediate area, so necessities are accessible.

    « Good value for the money spent »

    The room was clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast very nice, a large variety of food. Was about 20 minutes from my brother's house where we spent Thanksgiving day. Friendly staff. Would and will stay again.

    « Good value! »

    This motel is about 40 minutes outside Columbus, and is a good value. It was clean, comfortable, and well priced. No complaints at all. I would recommend that they provide comforters on the beds, but without one I just adjusted the heat until comfortable.

    « Great Value »

    We stayed at this hotel during my sister in laws funeral. It was not a good time but the hotel was perfect. Everyone was really nice. When I made the reservation over the phone through the 800 number I was told that they had no king rooms available except one with a jacuzzi in the room and it was 135.00 a night plus tax. I settled for 2 queen beds for 89.00 plus tax. When we arrived at the hotel and the whole 5 days we were there there may have been a total of 15 people. They gave us a king room for 89.00 - so don;t trust the central schedulers. Call the hotel directly. Overall this was a an excellent hotel and a great value. One warning though it is in the middle of nowhere and the closest town (Mt. Gilead) is about 20 minutes away to stores, rest and there is not a lot of those there either.

    « Most definitely adequate and really should get a 3.5 »

    Sometimes you just need a cheap place to stay in the middle of nowhere because it's en route to where you're going to need to be the next morning. And that's pretty much what this hotel provides. I did have some difficulty finding the place, as I arrived at night and the hotel sign was not illuminated. In face, there really weren't any lights on that I could see until I finally found the parking lot. (Which took a leap of faith in my GPS as passing the first turn off for the hotel puts you on an lit road by a cornfield.) The lady at the desk was nice, the room was clean and the decor wasn't really dated. My biggest complaint is that the weather had turned cold, but the bed still only had one thin blanket on it. I had to turn the heat up to a level I normally would not sleep with and also put towels over the bed as I really wanted a little more weight on me to facilitate sleep. The towels were okay, but the washcloth I used had holes in it. Good TV with a ton of channels was a plus though! Breakfast was OK. I opted for cold options, but my daughter went with eggs and sausage. She did not like them and did end up with an upset stomach. It was hard to have a conversation or listen to the news on the TV, as the indoor fountain was much too loud for the enclosed space with a tile floor. So the hotel got the job done. It wasn't terribly expensive, but then again it wasn't terribly nice either. I've been in better budget hotels, but then again, I've been in worse. If I could give this 3.5 stars, I definitely would.

    « Whater ever »

    The hotel was clean. the room was decent, but the hotel is located in the middle of nowhere. I had a 60 minute commute into and back from Marion each day. The clerk assured me it was 15 minutes. It was not. you get what you pay for. it was clean and cheap.

    « Awesome experience! »

    Very clean room, bed and pillows were very comfortable. Front desk clerks were so friendly and helpful. Very quiet, peaceful sleep. Everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable. Breakfast was a hot omelette bar, bacon and sausage and the regular breakfast items. I would definitely stay there again!! The value was also amazing!!

    « Good for One Night »

    It was clean and comfortable and perfect for one night while on the road, and the staff was friendly. They did have eggs and sausage in addition the the standard hotel breakfast items. We didn't have time to check out the pool.

    « Nice...but »

    Traveled all day til 130 am. Had a reservation prepaid through Expedia. Check in went well, hotel is nice, clean, lady at the front desk was very nice, helpful. Breakfast was ok, orange and apple juice was watered way down. Simple breakfast but sufficient. Again this was prepaid and she took my credit card and swiped it again. I questioned this as the room was paid for. She said I was not being charged just verifying the card. At checkout the next day, I get an alert on my phone from the bank I was charged..62.17 , price of the room before taxes. I called Expedia who then called the front desk. He was told (I stood there too) that it was a $50 charge for incidentals in case the room was damaged. I let him know it was more then $50. He helped me question this and after checkout the charge was removed..I feel if I had not questioned this I would have been charged.
