    « Tallahassee Stay »

    I enjoyed our stay at Best Western , located in Downtown Tallahassee. The price was acceptable, free breakfast, nice hot coffee all the time. Clean, comfortable, a best of all the service offered is great. Ms. Gloria at the front desk is amazing. What a wonderful host. I recommend this hotel to all that visit Tallahassee. It is within 15 minutes to FSU, and closelly located to many dinning choices as well as shopping.

    « WE came we saw we stayed »

    A last minute decision and saw this place on line . Traveling on a budget , the price was just within our reach. The lobby was stylish and the check in was really smooth unlike some of our experiences at other places. The parking lot was well lite and upon entering the room we saw this place is well taken care of .The TLC was evident. Nice clean room and the room was bigger then what we have stayed at. The breakfast was good with an attendant always replenishing supplies.

    « Best Service, from some wonderful people »

    This was our second hotel we first stayed at Fairview Marriot, we check out due to lack of customer service we even paid more expecting a better quality, which did not receive. Best Western went well over my exspectations. Just to wanted to say thank you to a couple of awesome ladies that went way above service, Keisha thanks very nice young lady, Zada and Mrs. J thanks for being wonderful people you made the rest of our stay awesome!! thanks again.

    « Highly Recommend! »

    Great for FSU or Capitol area visits. I've stayed several times, this hotel is set back from the road in a quiet, convenient location, with clean rooms, good breakfast and responsive staff. I recently had to cancel a reservation at the last minute - after the refund time - imagine my SURPRISE when I received a call the next day informing me I would still receive a refund because they were able to rent the room to someone else. Clean, quiet, safe location, and honest business practices - definitely will stay again and recommend others to do the same.

    « Clean, great staff, large T.V. , »

    Room was clean check in went smoothly, even though we were really early checking in. Staff was always friendly and accomodating. Parking lot was bright and felt safe. Room smelled clean, and not of bleach, this was nice. We will definitely be staying here again.

    « Reservation Overpricing and Room »

    I received a room for $70 more than others requesting the same room on the phone while I was checking in. To top it off, the room was not clean, and the air conditioning system left an odor and did not work properly. We both left with a migraine and we were overall very dissastified.

    « Nice hotel at a good price »

    The Best Western brand continues to impress me. I am a Hilton Diamond member, but due to my normal go-to Hilton brand hotels being full, or due to increased rates, I have started looking for alternatives. This is the third Best Western hotel I've stayed at in the last two months for business travel and I have yet to be disappointed. This particular hotel was much less expensive than the Hilton chain hotels in town and provided a similar experience. The room was clean and had everything you would expect in the way of amenities. I stayed in a non-smoking room with a king sized bed and it was quite spacious. The hotel is off a main road, a five minute drive from downtown, but it is tucked away and I did not have any noise issues from traffic or other rooms. This property will be going near the top of my list for places to stay in Tallahassee in the future.

    « Very outdated Hotel. »

    Visiting my daughter at College. Its OK for one night no more.. Very outdated Hotel. The room smell bad. AC was not working properly. We didn't have breakfast. We prefer a healthy option so we went to another place to have breakfast.

    « Hidden Southern Charmer »

    A "mistake" on my part led us to this quiet, classic hotel. It wasn't as close to the interstate as I first thought, but that proved to be a non-issue. While this hotel is an older style, all of the rooms have entrances from the outside, there are no indoor hallways, but the setting and the quiet far outweigh those concerns. This hotel is set back from the main road quite a bit. That and the Spanish moss covered trees really help to minimize any noise. I got a great night's sleep!! Very reasonably priced, clean. And did I mention...quiet? I we hadn't been on a schedule, I could've stayed here for several more days. It was very relaxing. The only negative that I can say about this hotel is that the laundry area (2 washers & 2 dryers) is also "outside". By that I mean the area is on the second floor in a breezeway. You will be shaded from any sun but the breeze/wind and flying insects (when in season) could still get at you. We did use the laundry facilities. The only real problem we encountered was that it took 2 cycles with the dryer to get our clothes properly dried.

    « FSU Parents Weekend »

    Absolutely wonderful stay! Decided to change hotels from our usual game-day choice due to the location of this hotel, let me say that this was the best decision we have made. It was about 5 minutes from FSU campus and had several great restaurants close by which is a necessity. The hotel seemed recently renovated and the rooms were better than expected, very spacious, modern, and most importantly clean. Looking forward to our next stay during the FSU/Clemson game! Go Noles!

    « Great escape from Hurricane Matthew »

    The hotel staff was incredibly accommodating to us during our evacuation from Ponte Vedra Beach, FL during Hurricane Matthew. My wife and I were traveling with our dog -- and pet-friendly lodging was extremely hard to find. Thanks to a very diligent manager at the front desk, we were able to extend our reservation and we ended up staying four days until the coast was clear to go home. We greatly appreciated the clean room, friendly staff, full breakfast daily, and willingness to help us through a tough few days.

    « Won't stay again »

    Chose this hotel due to a last minute decision to go to the FSU/UNC game. The rates were reasonable compared.to others hotels. For the most part, it's what you'd expect given the photos. My problem was with the bathroom. There was a dirty towel hanging on the door and the floor looked dirty. If I don't feel like my room has been properly cleaned, I can't get comfortable. Due to this stay, I have moved my family from our La Quinta hotel for the FSU/Clemson game. We are now at the Home2 Suites Tallahassee State Capital paying an outrageous rate!! Us fans just have to accept that our wallets will be robbed for accommodations during football season. It's a shame that hotels are allowed to charge insane "special event" rates.

    « Meh »

    I'm pretty sure you can do better if you're in Tallahassee. It's clean but run down like most Best Westerns I've been too. Bonus that it's walking distance to the mall, target and several restaurants.

    « Great port in the storm »

    The management took in 2 evacuees, with pets in our time of need. They worked to secure additional nights, as it was evident we could not return home as expected. Kudos to the housekeeping staff as well, Kim in particular!

    « Clean, Comfy Bed, Free Breakfast, Good Wifi »

    We stayed 2 nights in a king suite. It was very clean and seemed newer. King suite has a small divider wall with no door separating the bed from the living area. Had 2 Tv's which was good for the kids. This room only had a shower no bath tub. Rooms seem well insulated or at least sound proof. I heard very little outside noise from the second floor (only a car alarm directly beneath us). Morning coffee was also good. The gym consisted of a treadmill, bike, and an elliptical. Had a cable machine with limited attachments and 5 dumbbells. I'd stay again.

    « Good location. Nice room. »

    I stayed here because I had Best Western points to use. Good location but you cannot walk to the main part of downtown. A number of restaurants are within walking distance, Plenty of shopping in the area, Target, supermarket, etc.. Not sure what the rate would have been if I had to pay but I believe it is inexpensive. The room I had was big for 2 people. Could easily handle 4. Plenty of parking.

    « 80s motel »

    The room took us back to the 80s, but not in a good way. The latest renovation was too far away, the room was really worn down. But wore was was the desinteresterd staff, at the counte and at the (also disappointing) breakfast.

    The hotel is clean and sits back off the highway. Great breakfast, eggs, biscuits, bacon , gravy, waffkes, syrup dounuts, muffins,bagels, yogurt, etc. The rooms are a good size with 42 inch tv, cable , microwave and refrigerator. Good location, close to local shopping and restaurants.

    « A very nice place to stay »

    We stayed here for a night and was very pleased we did. This hotel is clean and comfortable...the grounds/lobby are well maintained. The staff was very professional and courteous. On a major road with plenty to do, shopping and restaurants...but tucked away. Almost can't see it from the road...so it was quiet. Check in was quick...our room was very clean and spacious (King Suite), we paid $99 through a travel site. Everything worked as it should have. The mattress could have been a bit more comfortable but that really depends on one's preference...everything was clean and seemed fresh. It was a good night sleep, I just prefer a softer mattress...where this one was not hard, just a little firmer for my taste; but not enough to hinder my sleep. In our room was a king bed, queen sofa bed and separate chair with ottoman. Large flat screen TV with about 35 channels, a dresser with 3 drawers, microwave and refrigerator...all worked well. Bathroom was clean and well stocked...and again, this room was very spacious. Larger than most in the same category, it seemed. The reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 would be that I do prefer a softer mattress and it did appear that the pool was pretty small. Everything else for us, for this category and what we paid, was a 5 out of 5. The free breakfast was very nice. A large assortment of hot and cold items. The morning we were there, the hot included biscuits and sausage gravy, scrambled eggs and sausage links. There was a waffle maker and assortment of cereals, pastries, fruit, cold juices, coffee, etc. It was all well stocked and fresh, plenty for a good start to your day. We got there about 7:30...open from 6:00-9:00. The room had about 8-9 tables, probably held about 25-30 people. We didn't use the pool but there was one at the entrance of the property...seemed clean...but pretty small. Overall, we were very pleased with this hotel and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone, we felt it was a very good value. The room we had would even be nice for an extended stay if need be. There's plenty to do to keep one busy within just a mile radius of this property.

    « Average hotel, room for improvement »

    I've traveled extensively and stayed in many hotels and motels, especially when I was running a non-profit foundation for one of the top 5 grossing rock bands internationally. My opinion is this is an average motel in need of an upgrade in the lobby and in the room in which I stayed. I've honestly racked my brain to come up with something that sets this motel apart from others, but I can't come up with anything, except maybe that the parking lot is spacious as a prior writer noted. That's about it. The primary reason I'm writing this review is because I experienced two different front desk clerks in action, and I believe these encounters are quite illustrative of how good customer service can make or break a guest's perspective of a lodging facility. Fleeing my coastal home, which was about to be hit by Hurricane Hermine, I wound up at this Best Western the day before HH made landfall. I made a reservation via a third party provider and arrived at the hotel a few minutes later. The desk clerk told me the motel's internet was down and therefore she could not access my reservation and check me in. She guesstimated the internet would be back up in about 20 to 30 minutes. I offered to sit in the lobby and wait, and did so while reading a newspaper. After about 20 minutes with the repairman obviously not close to success (we could hear his end of the phone conversation, which indicated exasperation), the clerk told me she would take my name and information and call me to come down to the lobby later when the internet was back up. I showed her a screenshot of the reservation I had made on my cell phone, and she gave me a key. Off I went to my room. On Friday, post striking of the hurricane during the early hours of Friday morning, the Best Western was advertising on the same third party site as having vacancies. There was a lot of confusion in town as to which lodgings had power and which did not. Because the Best Western was advertising vacancies with no notation that there was no power, as had some of the websites of other hotels in town, I gambled--as did a number of others--that the Best Western had power. Wrong. But here's where the difference between good customer service and the opposite of that comes into play. When I arrived at the hotel I explained that I had a friend fighting cancer who was sweltering in her home, and I wanted to get her into a motel/hotel. The BW desk clerk, not the same one from Wednesday, told me there was no power. She said the City had told her that it was restoring power just up the busy thoroughfare on which the BW is located, and it could be a half an hour, could be longer, before power was restored. I said that was OK, we saw there was a pool, and we would be glad to use that and wait, anything had to be better than my friend's stifling house. The desk clerk explained she could not check us in because there was no power. I told her what the other desk clerk had done the prior Wednesday regarding taking my name and information and working out the details at the computer later. I showed her a screenshot to prove I had made a reservation. This clerk then said she could not do that, and anyone who had made a reservation within the last day could not be accommodated. Meanwhile, while she was explaining this, she came from behind the desk and sat on the lobby couch. I understand that it was hot in the lobby, but she acted as if I, and the other guests arriving with newly made reservations, were an inconvenience. She questioned why I would want to stay there if I were in search of a cooled place. The condescension dripped out of every pore, and she began speaking to me in a very slow manner, as if I were an idiot. I decided to cancel the reservation and look elsewhere. She told me I would need to speak to the third party provider to do that. So I called them. The third party representative was not very helpful either. He wanted to talk to the desk clerk to confirm cancellation, so back in I traipsed so the clerk could do so on my phone. The two of them then got into an argument over whether she was truly refusing to check me in, and what would happen to the commission. So, I'm standing there, as are several other guests, in a sweltering lobby, while the clerk is having it out with the person on the phone. She was telling him she knew the conversation was being recorded, and she wanted a copy to prove that she was NOT going to agree to cancel my reservation, because she did not want BW to have to pay the commission. So essentially, I am standing in this sauna of a lobby with other guests, while this clerk is in an argument with this third party representative, and telling him she is NOT going to check me in but she is NOT going to agree to cancel my reservation, either. I took my phone back. The third party on the phone told me the clerk was acting "very aggressively" toward him, as if I couldn't tell that on my own. He then, unbelievably, told me that I would "probably" get a refund. I told him, that's not good enough for me. I made the reservation which was advertised as a vacancy, I paid for it, I presented myself at the motel ready to check in, and the motel was refusing to check me in and would and could not say when I could be checked in. I felt like I'd entered the Twilight Zone. I asked to speak to a supervisor but after being on hold for 20 minutes hung up. Thankfully a supervisor did call back and stated I would receive a full refund because there was a clause in the contract stating that all reservations made during a natural disaster would be automatically cancelled and refunded. I fully understand things were hectic due to the hurricane but that is no excuse for an employee's rude behavior. Attitude in a situation like this makes all the difference in the world. The clerk should simply have stated her apologies for the vacancy being published in error because the motel was not taking in any new guests due to the power outage, and she should have asked if she could assist me with finding a new lodging or cancelling my reservation at the Best Western. She did none of that. Instead, she came out from behind the desk, sat on the sofa, she had family members listening in and at times interrupting, and she spoke to me (and at least two other guests who arrived to check in) in a condescending manner. That is unacceptable behavior. Except for this clerk's behavior, this motel is an OK mid-price-range facility. I wound up at the Red Roof Inn the following day (we spent Saturday night in my friend's sweltering home because by the time I got done with the Best Western all of the other motels and hotels in the area that did have vacancies were snatched up that fast). The RRI was, surprisingly, replete with nice upgrades, unlike the BW they do not charge a pet fee, and they were $30 less per night.

    « Stay here if you are sending your child to FSU! »

    This hotel was fantastic and a minimal distance to FSU campus. I moved my son into his dorm recently and found this hotel through Costco travel and after checking in I was thoroughly surprised of how big the room was. There's also a Target directly next store as well as one of my favorite restaurants, Jasons Deli across the street. Although there was no Gym on hotel site the hotel gives you a voucher to stay at the YMCA which was great. I went both days and it was no inconvenience whats so ever.

    We stayed here to explore the forest and travel to the gulf coast areas. The hotel is ideally situated for this & 10 mins to the out skirts of Tallahassee. The hotel itself is very clean, tidy, well maintained, with adequate parking. The staff are some of the best we've met. Nothing was to much trouble, friendly and welcoming. There's coffee available all hours. The breakfast is a very good quality. Our room was very spacious, clean, everything there and working. The air con was quiet and worked great. Definitely value for money.

    « Great Find »

    Coming from downtown on Apalachee, the motel is a little difficult to get into. You must make a U-turn, then drive back to the motel. It has outside rooms. The parking spaces are large which is appreciated for unpacking and loading next to another car. The rooms are large, as well, and clean, with a dividing half-wall designating a sitting area with a sofa and upholstered chair with footstool in the king rooms. There is a desk and chair and a bench for your suitcase. The room has outlets in all of the light fixtures, convenient for charging. The refrigerator was larger than usually found in rooms. It was large enough to hold Styrofoam containers with leftovers from area restaurants. There is the usual microwave, coffee pot, iron and ironing board, and hairdryer as well as free WiFi. The toilet in the bathroom was higher than normal (handicap, although not a handicap room ? much appreciated for tall travelers), with grab bars at the toilet and in the shower. The tub had an anti-slip surface. There was a full-length mirror and a large LG flat screen TV. The bed was firm, but comfortable. The hot breakfast is served 6:00 ? 9:00. I wish they would extend that to 10:00 since we usually travel for leisure. There were scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, sausage, waffles, pastries, cereal, bagels, fruit and yogurt. It is in a central location and close to town, but I don't know why it is called ?Tallahassee-Downtown.? I do not consider the location downtown. I will say that this will be our new ?go to? motel when visiting Tallahassee. For the money, you cannot beat it.

    My son and stayed here overnight prior to touring FSU. I am grateful for the GPS. Otherwise I probably would have driven right by the property. The beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was clean. The property met all our needs and surpassed my expectation. As for the breakfast in the morning, it is probably great for the majority of people. Unfortunately my son and I are both gluten free so the only choice available would have been scrambled eggs and bacon. My son is not a fan of scrambled eggs and bacon alone is not a breakfast. For a short stay I think this is a great option and if I am in the area, I would not hesitate to book again.

    « Surprisingly nice and comfortable »

    I did not really want to stay downtown but this hotel caught my eye with a good price so we took a chance and reserved. It is set way back from the Apalachee Parkway so go slow and look for the sign. Our check in was delayed due to a customer having a problem with her reservation and a previous stay complaint or something, who knows. Once she was finished our time at the front desk was friendly, short and professional. We got room 238 which was huge, clean and had a nice layout. The AC unit worked perfectly and even had a window curtain restraining device to keep the curtain away from the air flow. Other hotels: take notice and install these restraints! The bath area was clean as well and everything functioned as it should. The bed was very comfortable and we had a pleasant night's sleep. Breakfast was standard fare but there was plenty of it and we were happy with our morning meal. They could use more tables in the dining area however. Our checkout was fast and friendly and we left with a good feeling of having spent the night in a reasonably priced, large and clean room. What more can travelers ask for?

    What an absolutely WONDERFUL motel! Clean parking lot, entry and rooms! Polite, welcoming staff who smile and go the "extra mile." I missed breakfast, but the manager got me fresh coffee to go and asked if he could get me something from the kitchen. As I left, there was a young man cleaning the outside doors of rooms and the building. I complimented him on his work. It is because of the dedication of workers like this that makes a motel a HOME away from HOME! Wish I could give 10 stars. Highly recommend to all. Rooms are nicely decorated, large screen TV, bed is comfortable, air conditioning works, and plenty of towels. Pets are also welcome. Dr. Cookie --

    « Checking this one off the list »

    I would not stay at this Best Western again. I stay in Tallahassee for business a couple of times a year. I would not book with this hotel again. Beds not so comfortable. Room not so clean. However, the staff was nice.

    « Horrible smell... »

    The appearance of the hotel was nice enough and the check-in process went smoothly. However, upon entering the room we encountered a horrible, overwhelming smell of mildew. While the room appeared clean the smell certainly made it seem nasty. I will not stay at this location again. Take your Lysol spray if you plan to stay.

    « Amazing couple running this motel »

    We only stayed one night, but from the moment we asked if they had a room both Mike and his partner couldn't have been more helpful. That was the first impression and it continued with help over wifi and printing. Second impression was that the lobby, breakfast room and our own room were clean, tidy and well looked after, showing to me a management that took pride in its hotel and was keen to look after their guests.

    « Clean and centrally located »

    Booked this location as a resting place while we moved our daughter into college. Overall it is a nice place and reasonably affordable. Getting straight to the point, room was pretty clean and gets very cold which helps get a good nights sleep. Shower water is very HOT with excellent pressure. Has a mini fridge, microwave, iron board, large TV about 42', coffee table, desk, love seat in a separate area of the room, and free wifi! Continental breakfast daily which is plentiful and filling with a wide selection. The reasons for 3 stars is the fridge in our room did not get cold so putting drinks or food in there was a waste of time. It also gets very loud at night which was annoying. Finally the toilet backed up on us constantly. I cleared it with a plunger multiple times. Overall I'd stay there again despite these few quirks aside. Management and hospitality team was friendly as well. We paid about $85 per night, had we booked a daily earlier we would've paid $75. They did allow us to use AAA rates which helped. Book early and you will be fine.

    I booked last minute! The owner was so kind and the room was great!! The breakfast was AMAZING!! We loved it so much we stayed another night. There was great service from ALL employees very helpful and gracious!! I needed a room not terribly expensive and comfortable. My new husband and I are smokers and they could even accommodate that! This is a great place to stay, If I could I would give 10 stars. Mike is a wonderful person and bends over backwards to be a great host!!!

    « Great staff and even better facility! »

    Stayed at this site for three nights which was overall a very nice stay. The breakfast was wonderful and with many options, an essential when traveling with a large family! The entire hotel facility was well kept and Gloria as well as the other staff made us feel welcome. I was shocked but delighted to receive an early check in as well as a free upgrade, check out was an even more enjoyable experience. Restaurants near by were of no issue, a Chuy's and BJ's brew house close by the hotel. Look forward to our next stay at the Best Western Downtown!

    We went with the king "suite"...it was a bit bigger than a regular room but no really a suite. Nevertheless, the room was clean and bright...the flooring was nice...the price was right. The room had a fridge and microwave and the breakfast was not bad...overall very good value and not creepy.

    This hotel was very clean and well maintained. Staff was very professional and helpful. The room was a good size with an even better layout of many modern hotels! Having a refrigerator, microwave, and seating area was also wonderful. Breakfast was better than the other area hotels I had previously stayed at. It included everything from fresh fruits, waffles, yogurts, pastries, eggs (real eggs!), as well as hot gravy/biscuits. The breakfast attendant was a nice touch to ensure the full customer experience, something many places I have stayed lacked. The pool was clean and made for a very enjoyable day soaking up the Florida sun. Will be back! Thank you

    « Mixed feelings... »

    Our first impression about this hotel was terrible: we got at the hotel and there was a group of men hanging out in the middle of catwalk, drinking alcohol, smoking marijuana with chairs blocking the passage. My husband showed what was going on on the surveillance video and the lady in the front desk went to talk to them and they went inside their room. On my way to my room, my son and I saw two guys on the side of the hotel doing a suspicious transaction. Pros: room was clean, breakfast was good and plenty, location was good.

    « A Very Nice Stay »

    We were here several years ago and it was just an okay stay. This time, we were more than happy. We stayed at the back of the hotel which was shady and quiet. Our room was clean, good-sized, and comfortable. There are outside entrances which you can park right in front of. Old type of motel layout but it works. We had a great internet connection. Breakfast was quite good, too. There's a BJ's Brewery very close for eating. The only negative is that it's so far off the interstate if you are just traveling through. But we're coming back in June to do some geocaching and will definitely be staying here again. Great rates, too!

    Comfortable clean room with fridge and microwave. Decent breakfast with a lot of choices including three types of fresh fruits along with hot eggs, sausages etc. We were pleasantly greeted by a young lady (Caretha)?? wearing a chefs outfit. Clean. Friendly Staff. Close to many restaurants in the area including a Chuy's! Hot coffee in the lobby. Wide selection of TV channels. Lots of electrical outlets in the room which is becoming increasingly difficult to find in most modern hotels and I would say overall the stay was a good value. Highly recommended

    After reading reviews we decided to give it a try and we were not disappointed! We were pleasantly surprised when we opened the door to the room. It was clean and nicely furnished. Our daughter liked having the half-wall at the sofa bed for a little bit of privacy. The hot breakfast was a plus and we enjoyed the pool as well. This property is very close to downtown, many restaurants, Target, drug stores, and many other kinds of shops. This was our first trip to Tallahassee and the next time we come we still stay here again!

    My son and I stayed at the Best Western Pride Inn & Suites in Tallahassee while we were waiting for our RV to be moved to a new location. I can say that this is a very nice motel and that the staff, everyone from the housekeepers to the General Manager, Mike Parmar, were just as nice as they could be. They made our stay very enjoyable. The room was very comfortable and very clean. The housekeeping service was excellent. I liked everything about this place and would recommend it to anyone. It is centrally located and close to lots of restaurants and shopping.

    We stayed here in order to attend some FSU baseball games over a weekend. Everyone was super nice and professional. Our room was spacious, clean, and a comfortable bed. The King room also had a couch, coffee table, and desk/chair. We didn't have breakfast so I cannot comment on that, but everything else was great. And the TV was the biggest one we've seen in a best western yet! Shopping mall is huge close by and it's not far from anything you want to do downtown and FSU. I highly recommend and will stay here again in the future if we travel back to town.

    « Unusable internet negates an otherwise good experience »

    I was very pleased that I was going to be able to give this particular Best Western an enthusiastic high rating and then I encountered their internet access. If my internet weren't working well everywhere else, I'd wonder if it was my computer but not so. It's most definitely the hotel. But more on that in a moment since internet is not the most important thing to everyone. I came here on business, a one night stay here before booking into my client's chosen hotel. My first reaction was, ?Why can't I just stay here. It's cheaper, it's not much further, and I like this.? This hotel sits a little off the road, just far enough that there's no road noise at all despite the address being on a major highway (US27). It's set in a wooded area, plenty of shade, and very inviting. During my stay here, I felt safe as to my person and car. Upon arrival I was greeted by a very friendly lady at the front desk who covered all the bases and directed me to my room which was easy to find. The reservation was in order. There is a note about a $5 key charge but I didn't see it on my final bill so I don't know how that's handled. When I got to my room I found the usual Florida thing ? the air conditioning was turned off and the curtains open, letting the sun in so the room was quite warm. And the a/c does not run continually; it turns itself off and on so that could be an annoyance during sleep except for my white noise fan. It took a while to get the room comfortable and during the day it never did get really cool. It finally got acceptably cool about midnight. But the room seemed to be spotlessly clean, the paint was in good order, as were the carpets. A few defects but nothing to make it appear poorly maintained. There was plenty of space in the room since I had a king bed and a couch. It would have been a little tighter if there were two queen beds. There was not a whole lot of space to hang clothes. For me, traveling for business and bringing suits and shirts and pants for a few days and nights, it was moderately full. If I had my partner with me it might have been crowded. But they did provide a rack for the suitcase, which is getting rare, and there was plenty of desk and table and dresser space for everything. Ironing board and iron were provided, and a coffeemaker. There is no refrigerator or microwave. There is no overhead light ? meaning that the room lacks the harsh light of many rooms - but there were six lamps and with them all turned on, the room was quite nicely lit and inviting. One thing that I noted early: there is plenty of outlet space scattered all around the room, desk, side tables, sofa? everywhere. No matter where you were, you could plug in computer, phone, whatever and have all at hand. Excellent!! The bathroom was clean, and the vanity is separated from the shower area. Water pressure was adequate but no more. I was on the back side of the first floor and I hope second floor pressure is not any worse. The usual simple amenities were provided. Ah but the internet? they give you a note at the beginning and tell you, ?if you have any trouble,? and the note tells you that to get online you have to reset your router. Well, they aren't kidding. You have to reset it a lot. It kept shutting down as I was using the internet ? over and over again ? on the average of once every 5 minutes or less. Sometimes it would recover on its own, sometimes I'd have to reset my router (which the note tells you to do) and then it would come back up. I've never met a system before that required you to reset ?your? router to log in, much less continually reset it. This was, needless to say, more than an annoyance. There were spaces of time where the net would be up for as long as 10 minutes or so and then crash again. My diagnostic affirmed that it was in their access point, not in my computer, which I knew already. The rating for quality of signal was never more than ?poor? as diagnosed by the computer, never more than 2 bars. They really need to give this some attention. For a person with the acute need for internet access that I have, this is enough for me to say, ?Never again?? And I really liked this place otherwise and would be my hotel of choice when I visit the area. Just for the record, my client had booked me into a different hotel the next evening so I changed. In the new hotel, I had no problems at all, which indicates that the problem was not in my computer or router, which my diagnostic specifically stated, ?Your computer seems to be configured and operating normally, check the endpoint router.? So if you are in a position where internet access is not critical for you, then I can unreservedly recommend this hotel. I do not grade hotels on an absolute standard. I know what a five-star hotel is and I don't expect a small, budget hotel to perform at that standard. I expect them to be safe, clean, comfortable, with good water pressure, and good internet. This hotel meets and even exceeds all expectations except as to the internet access which is unacceptable. I will not stay here again unless I read that there are improvements.

    « Good Quality and Reasonable Price »

    Clean and comfortable. Close to restaurants and shopping. Full hot breakfast was included, a very nice touch might I add. Nice walking area along the street towards the town mall. Entrance to the hotel was a bit tricky since it is off the main road unlike a few other hotels on the same street. It is also a benefit since the hotel was not noisy at all since it was set away off the main road. I recommend using the Kohls parking lot to enter as there is an access road directly into the hotel. The front desk staff was excellent and knew what they were doing since we stay at Best Western's quite often, housekeeping does a great job in making sure the rooms were clean as it passed my usual room inspections! Will be back!

    « Wonderful Location! »

    Chose this hotel randomly online and so glad we did! Yes the building is older but made of concrete so the nights sleep was absolutely silent. The rooms are very clean and seemed to be newly decorated. The staff, from housekeeping to front desk were very friendly, welcoming, and courteous which is why we stay with Best Western. We booked the room on the ground level and that is exactly what we received. Let me also add that it is very pleasant being greeted by the front desk manager in the morning instead of a front desk clerk, you can really tell they like to check guests out early in the morning so they can interact and find ways to make the stay even more enjoyable. An extra effort which is lost on may hotels we stay at. Added bonus is being that this hotel is right across the street from the mall and Kohls as well as many dining/entertainment nearby. Tallahassee has Uber which made it very easy for us to get around without having to drive. We will definitely return, only regret is that our 3 night stay in the states capital was far too short!

    « Front desk staff needed »

    The room was spacious. No complaints there. We slept late so we missed breakfast. Nice location, very quiet. The young lady at the front desk working the evening shift on 4/23 was not friendly at all!! She had a permanent frown on her face & looked as though we were inconveniencing her by requesting a room. She DOES NOT need to be the first employee a potential customer comes in contact with. Her attitude alone can give this establishment a bad rep. I will say the lady at the front desk the following morning was friendly & courteous.

    « Nice Facility and Good Value »

    Disappointed with the condition of the pet-friendly motel on I-10 that we've usually stayed at in Tallahassee we decided to try this Best Western and it turned out to be a very good decision, The facility is set back from the road and is very quiet. Our room, which had a microwave and refrigerator, was surprisingly large and a low wall separated the couch and easy chair from the king size bed. The room was pleasantly decorated, clean and well-maintained, The free breakfast was one of the best we've experienced in properties in this price range. For I-10 travelers the location isn't ideal, since it's a ways away from the interstate, but for us the quality of the facility more than made up for the additional travel time.

    With three grandchildren on travel soccer teams, we spend a great deal of time in hotels. Best Western has become our preferred choice. They have a great rewards program and we have had only one bad experience. The experience we had at this hotel was excellent. We had stayed here previously and decided to return. We also recommended it to other members of the soccer team and they stayed here as well. The location to the soccer fields are convenient. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The room was clean, well furnished, and the beds were very comfortable. The wifi worked great. The room was furnished with a microwave, refrigerator and an updated TV. It is close to shopping centers, downtown Tallahassee, and places to eat. The best draw is the reasonable, affordable price. We will definitely plan to stay here if our soccer travels bring us back to the area.

    « Quiet, Clean, a bit of Heaven! Highly Recommend »

    This BW is about 15 minutes off the freeway, but absolutely worth it! The hotel is tucked away from the main street, along the side of the shopping mall. Lovely setting, with big trees surrounding it. The lobby area was redone recently and is charming. The check in clerk was very nice. I got a room on the second floor facing the small neighborhood. These rooms are truly suites. Very big room! My room had a king size bed so there was plenty of room. There is a sitting area when you enter the room with a wall separating the sleeping area. The room has microwave, mini-fridge, small coffee maker, flat screen TV, Good wifi, shower over tub, separate sink area, ironing board, phone, plenty of lighting, and a desk with a task chair. The room was pleasantly decorated, probably recent. Bed was extremely comfortable and had feather pillows. This was one of the best nights sleep I have had in AGES! I was sorry it was only for one night. The breakfast buffet they serve in the morning was very good with all the usual - scrambled eggs, sausage patties, hot biscuits and gravy, bagles, muffins, sweet rolls, cereal, fruit, yogurt, waffles, juice, coffee, tea, all the usual stuff but nicely done in their own dining room. All the public areas are very large as are the rooms. There is a nice pool (no jacuzzi though) to the front of the hotel. Plenty of parking. Only drawback is there is no elevator. They do have vending machines for soda and snacks, and both levels have a laundry area $1.00 wash. (didn't notice price for dryer) You won't go wrong with a stay here! There are plenty of restaurants close by.

    I stayed here twice recently on business and found it to be adequate, some aspects even more than adequate. The room was ok. The room I had the first week was very nice and had no real issues. The second week the room was showing signs of use and needed some maintenance. Breakfast area was a bit small but had a nice select of typical hotel breakfast fare. Exterior corridors-need I say more. One thing that really bothered me is that housekeeping would open the curtains that I had closed. I had my personal effects and my laptop there and didn't want all my business available to anyone who walked by and looked in. The grounds were well maintained and it's apparent that they are trying. The parking area is small and entrance and egress is a bit weird. All in all it was a nice stay and if stay there again if I'm in the area again.

    « A disappointing stay at a potentially nice property »

    I stayed at this property for one night on a return leg of a business trip. The hotel is located down a driveway a little off of Apalachee Pkwy, but there is good signage to find the property. I was a very late check-in, and was checked in by a non-uniformed, non badged clerk with no issues. When I got to the room (first floor exterior king) parking access was fine, right outside the room door. Entering the room I was greeted with a 1970's era hotel room that had been renovated a few times. The room was generally in good order from a 5-second visual inspection. Flat screen TV, comfortable bed, heat in good working order (it was a cold night in Tally). However... after the cursory inspection is where I started discovering problems, all of which included dirty sheets, dirty pillowcases, other people's hair in the tub, a dirty toilet seat with encrusted fecal matter, very dirty carpet in the area of the nightstands with dust bunnies all over, peeling paint, stained towels and washcloths, noticeable wear on all the furnishings, and a funky odor. I actually lifted the mattress to check for bedbugs after what I found. The hot water in the morning had good temperature and pressure, however the shower nozzle was not properly secured to the shower arm and came unscrewed trying to change the spray mode on the shower head, probably the lime and scale on the head contributed to the hard turn of the nozzle. Towels were older but absorbed well and weren't like sandpaper. The housekeeper that prepared the room and the executive housekeeper that inspected and released the room for occupancy should both be terminated. The ONLY reason that I didn't immediately check out and request a refund was that it was close to 4 AM when I checked in after driving all night, and I just didn't feel like looking for another hotel at that hour of the morning. The property offered complementary breakfast from 6 to 9 AM, but I didn't have an opportunity to try it. On checkout I did have a brief opportunity to look around the grounds and it was apparent the management was trying to take good care of the property, the office area was nice and tidy and the outdoors areas were well manicured and visually appealing. Take care of the housekeeping, maintenance and linen issues and this property would be a good bargain. As it was I felt uneasy at best due to the poor, poor cleanliness, not a memorable stay by any means. Best Western properties usually perform better on quality control, this stay was just plain disappointing to me compared to normal Best Western maintenance and housekeeping practices from other properties I've stayed at in the recent past. These owners really need to get their act together.

The bathroom is clean and there is plenty of hot water . The bed and pillow were very comfortable. The area is convenient to everything and safe.

In two weeks, we will be back in Tallahassee and plan to stay at this motel again. We had friends that stayed at this motel as well. They said their rooms were also clean and worth the price. The breakfast was adequate. The juice machine was out of order but there were small bottles of juice available. The biscuits and sausage gravy was good. There were eggs and sausage, waffle make, cereal, and pastries. Fruit was also available. Great places to eat around the property and places to shop.

    The hotel has a very friendly staff, clean rooms and a decent breakfast . Even though the juice machine was on the blink during our stay, they had small bottles of assorted Welches juice. The property is not new but is newly renovated with very tastefully decorated rooms and the exterior was also well maintained.The mall is within walking distance and there are several good eating places nearby.There is also a KOHLS right next door.

    « NOT BAD! »

    I booked this hotel before I read all of the reviews. I saw some people's pictures of moldy bathrooms and underwear in drawers and began thinking 'Boy did I mess up!". I was in town for a show at FSU and didn't want to spend a ton of $$ just for a place to sleep. Arrived at the hotel, checked in and was pleasantly pleased. Room was clean and comfy. The staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast bar was great. This place is close to many restaurants and the mall is right down the road. All in all... I's stay there again!

    « No hot water »

    We were put out of our rented house by the need for plumbing work, and needed a room with a working toilet and shower. We ran the water in the shower for 5 minutes in the morning and it never got hot enough to shower in. We only stayed one night. When we informed the manager about this she said she hadn't had any complaints about this before, and would get someone to fix it. I told her this didn't help us, as we were checking out. She did not offer to reduce our bill. Breakfast was the usual fare, except there was no fruit of any kind, and the juice machine was 'out of order'. The pumps worked, so I suspect they ran out of concentrate. The management could have got fruit juice in cartons from a nearby grocery store.

    Excellent downtown location. Set back from the main road. Clean and nice sized rooms. The room faced outside so you can park your car right outside your room which saves you the trouble of towing all your luggage inside. The room looks newly renovated and smelt like it too! The breakfast was good with a larger than normal variety of offerings as well as hot items :) The check in and checkout was fast and painless as any hotel stay should be, look forward to our next visit to the Best Western Pride Inn & Suites!

    Very clean, quiet, and comfortable room with a really good complimentary hot breakfast. Just 2 1/2 miles from the state capital building and the rate was much lower then the other surrounding hotels. It was also within reach of restaurants and the mall. The hotel service was great and we will definitely stay there again. Also loved the oversized HD TV!

    « Dirty....Dirty...Dirty... »

    I was given a dirty room. Looks like the house keeper didn't feel like working this day. Went to place my clothes in the drawers and a female thong and tissues in there. Also my pillow had yellow stains on it. Complaint to front desk and there was nothing he can do....said there were no more rooms available. Had no choice but to stay in this dirty room.

    I was in town for business and I must say... you cannot go wrong with this hotel. I have been here once before and the newly renovated rooms were a delight to stay in. The staff is very friendly, and breakfast in the morning is a must before you start your day. Will be back again very soon.

    First time visiting Tallahassee, I arrived to the hotel early prior to check in but thankfully the manager was able to check me in early. The rooms were clean, spacious, and modern. Hotel front desk staff was very helpful in directing me around town and the housekeeping staff did an exceptional job!

    For my first visit to Tallahassee I couldn't have chosen a better hotel in such a central location. It is just a short Uber ride from downtown as well as the cities best nightlife and dining. The hotel seemed as though it was recently renovated and the overall decor was very well done. The rooms were exceptionally clean, spacious, and modern. I look forward to my next stay at the Best Western Pride Inn!

    Wifi is non existent. Keep ALL items under lock & key. Missing makeup products. Excellent location, near Capital , Shopping and FSU. Items did not come up missing 'til 1 day prior to leaving. If you need use of internet for any type of business this is not the place. High Speed WIFI does not exist. Low Speed WIFI does not exist. PS. Take your own blanket, especially during winter; there are no comforters on bed only 1 blanket.

    Great rooms for the price. The hotel was surprising quiet for being so close to the roadway. The rooms and hotel overall were very clean, the staff was helpful and attentive. The breakfasts were very good , plenty of fresh and hot items available. Plenty of shopping and restaurants within walking distance. Quick easy access to the capital.

    « Overnight destination »

    Stayed here one night while attending Franklin Graham's Decision America Tour. The place was very clean and the staff was personable. Only two miles from the capital building which enabled us to catch a quick cab ride down and back. The breakfast suffered a bit but we came down at 8:30 and breakfast was only served until 9:00. Nice and quiet..off the street yet close to everything. Would stay again if in the area

    « Mixed Feelings »

    Room was very spacious, plenty of lighting options available in room. Plenty of outlets available to use. Micro fridge was not sitting straight, as in only on 3 legs. Toilet was higher than a typical toilet. Some of the cleaning staff could use a little brushing up regulations with service dogs. Pretty sure they're not allowed to discriminate against service dogs being in the breakfast room.Check-In process took about 20 minutes, with no one else trying to check in. Property has good selection of drink machines and snacks on both floors. Laundry facilities are located on 2nd floor in the hallway. Property does not have elevators. Pick odd number rooms. You will be on the same side as the doors to enter Front Lobby. There are at least two other ways to get in the Front Office, but they have signs up staying to enter a certain way.

    « Perfect for quick stay to visit FSU »

    This is a hotel that accepts dogs which was why we chose it for our stay. I was concerned about the mixed reviews but seriously don't be. All of the rooms have new carpeting, bedding and paint. This is an old style motel but in excellent shape. Perfect for our quick visit to FSU. Breakfast is included too.

    This hotel was such a pleasant surprise. It is off the main road, which makes it a lot less noisy to stay at than most hotels in the area. Check-in was easy and the front desk staff was very helpful on being knowledgeable about things going around in the area. The rooms were recently renovated and I must stay, the owners and management did a phenomenal job. Breakfast in the morning was delicious with a huge variety to help start the day. I will definitely be back here any time I am in Tallahassee!

    « Wonderful Stay »

    This hotel is quaint and charming. It is nestled in the trees right off the main strip of US 27. You can walk to Kohls Dept store and you are just down the street from the Governors Square Mall. The bed was so comfortable that my husband and I just about missed breakfast the first morning. Beakfast was scrambled eggs, sausages, gravy and biscuits, pastries and more. Everyone was very nice and helpful. It was a wonderful stay for us.

    « Good place to stay to visit FSU »

    This hotel room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. Close to many places to eat and the Mall . Had good experience , when exiting it is tricky best to use the Kohl's or Verizon parking lot because the hotel is on a slope and hard to see traffic coming from the slope. You can just drive into them from the hotels main road. That was only issue we had.

    We stayed here en-route to Jacksonville and wanted a cheapish stop-over and the room was pretty well appointed and comfortable. It is an old style motel not really a hotel reasonably well located near to shops and a Mall and restaurants etc. Breakfast is OK and is we thought it reasonable value for money.

    « Late Night Stop Over »

    I walked in about 10pm after a long drive and had a mix-up with my reservation dates thanks to the third party website I used to book this hotel. The front desk was very helpful and managed to get me a great room last minute! Obviously I still had to pay for it, but it was a reasonable price. The room was clean and comfortable. My only critique would be the complimentary breakfast. It was a bit of a letdown. There were no lids for the "to-go" coffee cups, no peanut butter and not much by way of options.

    I must say that this hotel was a very enjoyable stay. The area is very quiet, off of the main road. The newly renovated rooms were absolutely a delight. Very comfortable overall. I could certainly tell upon check-in that the staff take care of this property. Mike, the manager, made sure I was comfortable with my room and if I had needed anything that I could contact him. The breakfast in the morning was an absolute great way to start the day. Although I was here in business, I would definitely bring my family when I am back in Tallahassee. Thank you!

    « OK for the price »

    Called the hotel and was asked to "call back in 10 minutes we are busy". This happened twice. I gave up and called back the next night. This time I was put on hold or 15 minutes then disconnected. Finally called the 800 number and got a reservation. Found out the other couple that were meeting us there had the same experience with being put on hold or told to call back later.. When we arrived at 9pm there was only one person at the desk, maybe that's all they ever have and why they can't handle phone calls? Check in was easy enough. Room was "OK". There was a candy wrapper peaking out from under one of the beds, and the bedspreads were dreary and stained. Took it off immediately. I think it had been there since the 1980s. Bathroom was very old but shower was nice and hot with good pressure. Carpet appeared to have been replaced recently and was the cleanest thing in the room. Not the hotel's fault, but when we got up to leave the next morning, hubby had to move the car because someone had vomited outside the passenger door of our car, and I would have had to step in it to get inside the car. Again, not the hotels fault, but it surely wasn't what we wanted to see when we left in the morning.

    I had originally made my reservation for a differant date and only when i arrived at the hotel did i realize the colosal error i made.

    Rooms in this hotel were very large. Room itself looked bit outdated, but it seemed that they were doing some renovation while we where there. Breakfast was ok. Not great, but gets your day started. Hotel had washing machines and dryers, but no detergent to sell. Nearest shop was also few miles away, so we had to save our laundry day to next hotel.
