"Excellent"

01/11/2018

The rooms were very clean, the beds comfortable, the staff was amazing and the breakfast was really good with too many choices to pick from and all the food was very good. Every staff member could not have been nicer or more helpful. We would not hesitate to stop here again when passing thru.

"Pleasant surprise"

23/10/2018

My hubby and I were coming through Starke, FL yesterday afternoon and were getting tired. We stopped at the Best Western, generally not our first choice, and luckily they had a room. The hotel obviously had recently been renovated. The room, a double queen, was clean and comfy. A little miffed they had no King that was a non smoking room but without prior reservations it was no big deal. The staff was very friendly and helpful for dinner choices. All staff had a positive attitude from the front desk girl, Kaitlyn, to the breakfast coordinator to the custodians. We would definitely stay again if in the area. We recommend this hotel with out any hesitation.

My husband not being well, was ready to stop and rest, so we checked in here. Dixie was so pleasant and courteous. Check in was a breeze. Our room was lovely and spacious. Management was quick to fix our room phone so we could make calls, as our cell phone was destroyed with coke. Upon check out, management and Melody wished us well on our travels and said please come back. Very nice people, and yes, we would stay here again.

"My loyalties- Marriott or Best Western"

5
08/10/2018

I am a Marriott Platinum level from my many years of corporate travel. My husband and I are now retired and have become great fans of the value of Best Western. On our journey North, we spent the night at the Best Western in Starke. Room was immaculately clean, and my hubby raved about the hot breakfast in the morning. The town of Stark is really a throwback to an earlier age. The original buildings on call Street have been saved and repurposed and so many ways. Ty, the manager, does it all from checking us into mopping the floors. Great customer service all around. Will be back.

rockyfl1, Guest Relations Manager at Best Western Starke, responded to this review
Thank you for choosing the best value in Starke Florida for your lodging needs. Our management will be delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay and our newly renovated facility. See you soon!

Great stay, great price. Updated and clean. Breakfast was good. Very close to many restaurants. Excellent value for the price! Staff was polite and helpful. Far exceeded my expectations, as I did not know much about Starke. About 10 miles from Camp Blanding.

"Skeptical of other review"

1
29/07/2018

I'm not sure who is filling out these reviews, but I stayed at this hotel based on the strength of their reviews. I will not be returning to this hotel, or any other Best Western branded hotel. The outside appearance is nice. The staff were friendly. The room had a distinct odor, and the bedside table was dirty. There was a hole in the bathroom door where people could plainly see inside and out. Also, the bathroom door would not shut without difficultly. Most importantly, the hotel charges more for booking by phone than internet. This is a deceptive business practice.

rockyfl1, Guest Relations Manager at Best Western Starke, responded to this review
Thank you for the positive compliments on the exterior of our facility and staff. The management apologizes for you no so pleasant experience with our newly updated rooms. The maintenance department has taken all necessary steps to correct the door issue you experienced. Hope to see you soon!

Clean bedding, new furniture, quiet night. AC worked great. Toilet and shower were clean. Lots of soft towels. Didn't make it to free breakfast because the room was so dark... not a bad thing! Was a very nice surprise. That's all we wanted. Would definitely stay again.

05/06/2018

This is not my first time at this hotel. I have family in the area & have used it a few times over the years. It's always been a great stay. Our King room was exactly as it appears in photos. Always a clean room. Well kept up hotel as well. The bathroom is really nice too. Their free breakfast was very good. Eggs, sausage, variety of breads & cereals along with a do it yourself waffle maker. Courteous staff & easy check in & out. Close to a few places to eat & local stores.

"A clean, comfortable remodeled older property with outside room entrance"

28/05/2018

This older property was remodeled in a modest updated manner. Room was classic 1970's with new furnishings and bedding. Situated along a main highway you could hear road truck traffic and people outside you room walking and talking. Shower was hot and dining was close by. Next time we will be looking for a little better place to stay.

"Pleasantly surprised "

26/05/2018

I stayed here due to a recommendation from another friend that travelled here for business as well. I typically stay at one particular hotel brand due to being am awards member etc etc. Since my brand was only as close as Gainesville I stayed here. When I arrived (late) at approximately 12:30am the two ladies in charge met me with a very sincere and welcoming "hi! so glad you made it safely Mr.Smith". Over the 3 days there, every staff member that I met was extremely friendly and professional. The room was recently updated and very very nice. Clean carpet, appliances, bathroom, bed linens. Everything was nice and I felt so comfortable here. No weird midnight allergies from dirty linens etc. The parking lot felt safe and there was zero noise in the rooms or from outside. I would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay there next trip through.

"Not pleased with the experience for the rate charged"

2
14/05/2018

Air conditioners need to be replaced. Had to move to 2 different rooms; staff needs retraining on customer service. Not pleased at all and definitely not for the rate of the room. Starke needs a newer hotel, preferably a Hilton or Marriott.

rockyfl1, Guest Relations Manager at Best Western Starke, responded to this review
We apologize for any inconvenience that you may have experienced during your stay. Our air conditioners have been replaced within the last couple of years, and you may have experienced an isolated situation. We hope to see you again soon to prove that we do have great customer service and a modern, but efficient lodging facility.

"Comfortable, clean, quiet"

5
08/05/2018

We stayed one night in early May on a road trip, the 3rd time we've stayed here. As in the past, we found it clean, comfortable, convenient, totally satisfactory. It's easy to find on the main road through town, but our room toward the back was very quiet. Ask for a room away from the road. The hot breakfast included scrambled eggs, sausage, make-your own waffles, yogurt, fruit, served in a bright and cheerful breakfast room off the lobby.

rockyfl1, Guest Relations Manager at Best Western Starke, responded to this review
Wow! Thank you for your loyal patronage. We are delighted to hear all the positive compliments about our facility, especially the one about our hot breakfast. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay, and hope to see you soon on your next road trip!

"Nice Hotel"

03/05/2018

Nice hotel in a little town outside of Jacksonville. I chose to stay there for an event I had instead of staying in the city. Good selection for breakfast and all the hotel amenities were up to satisfaction. It seemed a bit pricey, as I've stayed at better best westerns and had it cheaper but it was still a nice stay.

rockyfl1, Guest Relations Manager at Best Western Starke, responded to this review
Thank you for the positive compliments about our facility! As you stated, our lodging facility is an affordable and efficient option for those attending events in Jacksonville, Gainesville, Camp Blanding, and other venues across North Florida. Hope to see you on your next stay!

10/04/2018

This is a decent hotel. It was older but nicely updated. The room was clean and comfortable and reasonably priced. The only small problem was there was only decaf coffee in the room. Breakfast was good but the area was small.

04/03/2018

I stayed at the Best Western in Starke Florida on Feb. 14. The girl at the counter was so nice. I was traveling with another person, we had different rooms. The girl at the counter did her best to get her close to my room. She went out of her way to help. The room was clean but noisy with a lot of construction workers staying at the Best Western.

03/03/2018

Hotel on major highway that runs through town so expected some traffic nose. Also got noise of a truck being repaired in the parking lot until almost midnight. Noise from the train that goes through the town night and day. Positives were that it is cleaner then others I have stayed in here. Breakfast was a plus. Front desk was hit and miss, one friendly and helpful and one not even polite. Manager seemed always available and polite.

rockyfl1, Guest Relations Manager at Best Western Starke, responded to this review

"Average motel."

3
03/02/2018

Stayed here on our way down to Florida. It is an OK motel, older with some renovations. The bed was little too soft but fine, free WiFi is excellent, TV is not HD (or at least looked fuzzy in our room), and furniture looked fairly old and was scratched. Room and general areas were very clean, and free breakfast was good and offers the standard fare. There is not a ton of choice on the area and this is definitely fine for an overnight or two. Staff was very friendly.

"Nice stop heading south"

4
12/01/2018

I was driving a car south for my elderly folks and drove from the midwest until I was tired the first day. That was north of Starke. But everyone else apparently had the same idea but got tired sooner as in no room at the inn. So I kept heading south and saw a Best Western in Starke. I swallowed hard and headed in--what a nice surprise. They had 1 smoking room left which I gladly took. The rooms, or at least this one, have been recently updated. And other than the smoking smell, which I knew about, it was a winner. The carpets, furniture and other appointments were all on par with a Hampton Inn. The shower was very nice. Three items of particular note; the soap had oatmeal in it and I love that texture! Nice move BW. Secondly the towels were nice and relatively thick and I believe there were 4 of them. Second nice touch. And lastly regarding the shower, as many places do, this one had the bowed out shower curtain rod. But a lot of times those things get loose and wobbly. I've only stayed at one other place that took the time to have a higher end hardware that doesn't get loose as easily. So three nice touches! They had a "complimentary" breakfast but I had a golf game awaiting me in about 5 hours so I skipped it! Check it out if you're passing through. And fun fact--if you read Elmore Leonard novels it seems like there's always a character or two from the Starke prison which is just down the road.

If you're in the road and need to stop for a night this is the place. The rooms are simple but clean and the bed was very comfortable. They offer the full Best Western breakfast as their other hotels. The girl at the desk last night, I want to say her name is Kassie, was very friendly, professional and efficient.

Ello chaps! Not many options in the City of Starke but Best Western is pretty much your best - and only option. Service at check in is good, although the overall cleanliness and feel of the property seems to be that of a typical Best Western. Not the cleanest of places, but not sketchy dirty either. For the rate and options around it's decent.

OMG. Mr. Sam and his awesome, he and his staff took such great care of all of us staying here. Mr. Sam continually walked around the facility during this time and made sure everyone was fine. We did loose power because Florida Power shut everything off at midnight in the entire area., (Teri the desk clerk told us this would happen prior to check -in. super sweet girl) Mr. Sams staff was down by 4 people due to the storm and he and two staff worked unbelievably efficient to prep the rooms and get us in quickly. He released his remaining staff and took care of the facility himself so they could go home to their families.It was fun watching all the cars attempting to go through the flooding on 301. Made the day after almost seem enjoyable. We were there from 9/9/17 thru 9/12/2017. We are going to make it a point to go back every 9-11 to relax, enjoy the great facility, and say hey to Mr. Sam and his staff.. all we can say is WOW !!!!!

We stayed at the Best Western Starke for 2 nights on Aug 4th and 5th, didn't know what to expect having passed by it for years, but with the recent renovations we were pleasantly surprised, The office is beautiful, we checked in Friday night and the computers were down, Terri behind the counter was as polite and nice as could be given the situation, she made sure we were in our room right away and we could deal with the paperwork at another time, which after a long trip room was great, the room was nicely decorated and clean, the A/C was nice and cold for the FLA heat! The pool was another highlight, very nice heated pool. In the morning the breakfast was great, biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, and toast, hit the spot! We will stay here again.

Best Western is the only hotel we stay at whenever we travel and we highly recommend it to everybody. Friends and family are always very gracious in telling us about "cheaper" places to stay and we very graciously listen to their recommendations and very graciously decline and tell them that the only place we stay at when away from home is a Best Western Hotel. Keep up the good work and you'll be assured of maintaining your client base.

Nice place to stay for leisure or business. Clean rooms outside grounds kelp very neat and clean.

The hotel is in the process of being refurbished all of the rooms and the lobby look great the only thing that we noticed that hadn't been finished was the outside of the doors on the guest rooms we would stay here again our only complaint although it did not affect us personally was the breakfast was advertised as being served from 6 until 9 the hot food items were removed at 8:45

It has been a couple of years since we have been to the Best Western in Starke, FL, it has been renovated and a good place to stay in Starke. Breakfast was good and plentiful (I always make the waffles - guarantees good hot food). Terri was still on the front desk and really works hard at making sure everything is good. Also the fact that it is within walking distance of an old style drive in (with ice cream cones) is a definite plus. Will stay there again on our next trip to Starke.

We couldn't find a room in Gainesville for Gatornationals and ended up 30 minutes away from track in Starke. We were very pleased with the hotel. The outside area with huge grill was a big plus. We grilled steaks the first night we were there and sat at the big picnic table under the gazebo. It was a very nice evening with the family. Breakfast was ok...food was cold.

We stayed in Starke Florida because it is a short drive to The University of Florida. Staying at The Best Western in Starke is perfect for going to a game at UF as it is alot cheaper than staying in Gainesville. The Best Western in Starke Florida has been recently remodeled and looks great! The breakfast area has been enlarged... the free breakfast tastes good too! Room was very clean, smelled so nice. There is an outdoor pool. There are nice places to eat in Starke as well, I recommend The Dairy Freeze next door to the Best Western, The Downtown Grill and Cedar River Seafood.

We stayed here two nights. (In the area for a wedding). The room, as well as the entire building, was recently updated. Very clean and quiet. Comfortable beds. Friendly staff. Housekeeping was attentive. Grounds were well kept. Breakfast was "basic" but it had plenty. Pool was closed for the season, but the outdoor amenities were a nice plus. (patio, gazebo, fire pit, etc). Driving around the area, this was the nicest place we saw! We made an excellent choice!

Driving from North Carolina to SW Florida, we thought we'd overnight in Jacksonville, but several hotels we tried were fully booked, so we continued on to Starke. So glad we did! The Best Western was less expensive, easy to find and an excellent place to stay. It is freshly renovated, clean and attractive. The front desk staff gave us a useful map showing local restaurants, along with suggestions for dinner. Our room was very comfortable and quiet. In the morning when we heard that car accidents in Jacksonville had backed up traffic, we were thankful that stretch was behind us. We had an early breakfast at the hotel (lots to choose from) and were on our way.

Just as the title says, we love this place. Fried chicken and chops are great.

You also have the option to order from the menu. Steer burgers are very good as well. Wait staff are always polite and helpful and take care of you. Be sure to get some rolls.

Everything was in great condition and it felt the room had barely been stayed in before - I usually don't get that feeling when staying in a hotel! Our sons enjoying taking a dip in the pool as well. We only stayed for 1 night as my husband was doing a triathlon at Camp Blanding, but we were very impressed from check-in to check-out. If we ever come to Starke again, we will be sure to stay here again - no doubt.

Needed a place to stay overnight heading to FMB with our dog fur baby. Glad we found Best Western Starke on Trip Advisor identified as pet friendly. What a hidden gem along Route 301. Guest rooms are exceptionally clean, well appointed, nice pool and courteous guest services. The hotel is in the midst of a lobby renovation so didn't take advantage of the complimentary breakfast. Centrally located to many fast food establishments and other store conveniences. Major recommendation - watch your speed when driving along 301. Saw many cars pulled over!

Traveling to Florida with family and stopped for the night. Recently renovated, so the room is up to date. Got up in the morning to eat breakfast at the hotel, came back, got out bags and left. As a business owner of a cleaning service for luxury cabins and commercial buildings , I know what is preformed by maid services. Before we even got in the car the maid was already in the room taking the towels.. Not too professional. Location is so-so. Dairy Freeze is in walking distance from the hotel and has good food, it reminds me of "Tasty Freeze" from the show Friday Night Lights. Behind the hotel is a Parol and Probation office which turned us off. That night between 2-4 there were also multiple people conversing loudly outside our room. I realized I didn't have my ring and left it on the sink counter. I checked everything multiple times and called the hotel before returning to to retrieve it. The ring was "no where to be found." When approaching the receptionist and cleaners they were not to my help.. If theft is going to happen, the person needs to at least hide their not telling the truth .. Written all over their face.

The Best Western Starke is very clean. It looks like they have painted the outside recently. The room is a very nice size. I have a handicapped accessible room, They have two HA rooms. One has a walk in shower the other does not. Sadly I did not have one. The girls in the office were fantastic. They were very accommodating.They have an outdoor pool, and there is a ramp to it, but the gate is not wide enough for a power wheelchair. So I could not go there. I would recommend this motel to anyone that finds themselves in this area.

Clean room and nice people. We had some packages sent to the Best Western and the front desk people took them To the room for us. Breakfast room was very small. I will stay at this Best Western next year.

On our way to Jacksonville for a cruise we happened upon the Best Western Starke. We found the rates reasonable, the staff VERY professional, and the beds really comfortable. We will definitely stay again. (The pool area is absolutely beautiful but the weather did not cooperate that day.)

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Great to hear the positive compliments about our staff and facility! We hope that you can return in the near future and the weather cooperates for you to enjoy our pool area! Thanks again!

If you are ever visiting Stark, Florida, please make The Best Western on the 301 your place to stay. The rooms are very clean, the beds are very comfortable and the staff are very friendly. The breakfast buffet was ok, it would be better if they offered some type of bacon or sausage to go with the waffles.

Seems they did some renovations. Much better. The room was very nice. The only complaint I have is the pool was really small. Great staff. Breakfast wasn't bad. I've stayed here a few times but this last time I have to say was the best room I've ever gotten.

rockyfl1, Guest Relations Manager at BEST WESTERN Starke, responded to this review
Thank you for the positive compliments. The property has been updated recently and our guests are loving the changes! Our breakfast enhancements are going to follow shortly! Thanks again, and hope to see you in the near future!

From Check-in to Check-out, this is the best choice for overnight stays in Starke. Rooms are well appointed, clean and comfy. Bathrooms are clean, in good repair and roomy enough. You get all of this at a reasonable price. It doesn't get any better.

Thank you for making us your #1 choice in Starke for your lodging needs. We provide the "best" accommodations in Starke at reasonable rates! Hope to see you again soon!

check in was smooth and the room and bedding was clean. That is all I needed as I passed through Starke. I have made this trip several times and the Best Western is the best hotel / lodging offering in Starke, FL. Breakfast was nice, the staff friendly and di ask if I needed anything. Again, a clean room in an older hotel is fine, I was not looking for anything more than that & wifi, which they did have and it worked good. I will stay there again when I make this trip.

"Wonderful family overnight stay."

We spent the night here on a family trip and we were pleased to find a clean and friendly hotel. Terri (spelling?) was very friendly greeting us and signing us in for the night. She let us know if we needed anything just to call the front desk and she would take care of it. It's nice to experience great customer service and friendly staff. The hotel looks newly renovated and the rooms were neat and clean. Good job! Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

Went to a wedding in this area. Most everything was either booked or $150 per in Gainesville. Rate was a little high for this type of hotel in this type of town, maybe because Florida Gators were playing home on this weekend. Cleanest hotel in this town. Not much around except for Grannies about 1 mile or 2 away for a good home cooking type breakfast. Friendly staff. Very quiet during our stay. Very good for one night.

Recently renovated....very well appointed rooms...very eye appealing duvets and pillows on the beds. Furniture modern and new. It was obvious that the housekeeping staff took pride in their jobs.....everything was clean...lots of fluffy towels. The staff was incredible....very friendly, welcoming, and helpful with answering questions. The person at the front desk and one of the housekeeping staff (who happened to be at the desk when we checked in) were both great representatives for Best Western Starke. We would absolutely stay there again, if in that area. Great accommodations for the price.

I am very pleased with my stay, and Terry took great care of us. Lots of choices for the continental breakfast; bagels, coffee, muffins, juices, oatmeal, fruit, and waffles (I am missing a lot of other things). I loved the breakfast. The pool was clean, the room was clean with good air conditioning, the TV had good stations and we had a parking spot right in front of our door. A++++

We booked this hotel to go to a gators game, didn't know the area or hotel so a tad apprehensive since it was two females. The receptionist at check was lovely and the next morning the lady who was on the front desk went out of her way to help, I was very happy Clean room , not bad breakfast although the breakfast area could be a bit larger, overall a great experience.

Ended up in Starke by accident and was very surprised by this Best western. It was clean and comfortable and the rooms seemed almost brand new. Friendly staff--and a great little road-food joint nextdoor.

This hotel is almost the only in town. It could be excellent with a better breakfast and better rate. The location is good, right on the highway but within walking distance of only one family-type Mexican restaurant. The others were all within a short drive for which the hotel supplies a very good map and information. It is a two-story property without an elevator, so if you do not get a ground-floor room, be prepared to schlep your stuff up the stairs.

"Great room. But there were issues. "

I was down there seeing family, and trying to get some business at a funeral home done. So I ended up staying 4 days. Room was lovely. On day one I got a knock saying check out was at 11. The staff was unawares I was staying more than one night. No big deal really. Day three I accidentally knocked the remote behind the mattress, and upon my attempt to retrieve it I discovered a baby diaper..... I didn't examine it too close. I threw it in the trash, and went about my day. Departure day I had noticed at that point ants had made my truck a home. Never saw one in the room. But my truck right outside the door(by the way great parking) was free game apparently. Synopsis. The room was great. The best time I had in Florida was in that room. Not Jacksonville. Certainly not Orlando. But it was apparently secretly kind of gross. Wouldn't say dirty. But gross sure. Diapers are gross. Ants in my vehicle. I mean a lot too. Like 30 that I could see. Slight worry entered my mind that they would actually jam the engine with their bodies somehow. This is all expected, and acceptable if paying 50$, even 60$ a night for your hotel. Mostly I'm peeved I payed about 100$ a day. I spent almost as much as I do on rent while here. Though I suspect that's because I booked on a Friday. I'm still learning about hotels. I've learned that one's that have the entrance to the room on the inside of the building are preferable. Not every hotel of the same name is of the same quality. If possible? Forking over the extra cash is worth it. If you enjoy R&R.

I found this hotel in the 'middle of nowhere', on US-301 road in center of Florida. Clean and nice building, very nice and helpful staff. breakfast area was small, but beside it everything else above average.

This hotel has plenty parking for a boat trailer. The staff is very courteous and helpful. It was so helpful to stay at a hotel that accept dogs and have grassy areas around the hotel to walk your dog since the hotel is on route 301 but our room was quiet.

"Best Qualityand Value"

This is by far the best hotel in this area. It also has great pricing and is a wonderful value if you are in the Gainesville area. Very clean rooms, this is a signature for them. You know a hotel is clean when the stairwells are neat and clean. Good morning breakfast. My only recommendation to them and all other hotels, if you are pet friendly, save some rooms pet free for those of us with allergies or not interested in staying where animals have been on the furniture. I did not see any signs of pets, but would prefer a pet free room due to allergies.

Our church uses The Best Western Starke, FL frequently when doing outreaches and volunteering in and near Starke, FL. The rates are great and the staff are always extremely accommodating. Never had a complaint in all the years we've been using the hotel.

My wife and I have stayed at this hotel numerous times in the past during our travels to FLA. I was very disappointed with my most recent stay(10/2/15) Check-in was much more timely than is necessary. Door key did not work so we had to change rooms. Maid had not prepared the room for new guests. A/C cover rattled often when the A/C came on. Beds were comfortable and general area around our room was quiet. Breakfast was minimum.

My guess is this is the best place to stay in Starke. The first night my wife did say the trains bothered her a little. Also, we were locked out of the room after the first night. That was fixed easily. The breakfast was the usual, but they did have more bananas than any Best Western we have visited. I have one minor complaint. At check in and check out the clerk was on the phone for a bit longer than I thought necessary before we were acknowledged.
