    « Nice place »

    I stayed for business. It is close to restraunts ad shopping. Had plesant stay it appears the rooms were recently remodled. They were remodling the lobby and was under construction did not affect my stay all in all a nice property.

    « Nice Place, Comfortable Beds! »

    There was a group of 6 of us with 3 rooms and we all agreed that the beds were very comfortable and the hotel was very quiet. The next day we had breakfast in the dining area and all of us were able to find something that we liked. Can't beat that!

    « Comfortable Beds, Great Desk Clerk, Horrible Housekeeping »

    Comfortable beds but layout and cleanliness leave a lot to be desired. Our family of four came to stay two nights while I had business in town. I booked directly through the hotel and was pleased when they offered a room slightly before the internet price. Upon reserving a room, I did request a room close to the front desk as I am handicapped and have problems walking even with a cane. I was assured it wouldn't be a problem. After checking in, and heading to our room, we had to first walk down the entire length of the downstairs corridor (at least ten rooms spread out on each side) just to reach the only elevator of the hotel. After getting off on the second floor, we again had to walk at least the same distance down the second floor corridor (our room is almost above the lobby). I'd have called the front desk to see about changing to a closer room, but I was just too worn out and in too much pain to have to walk the corridors again. This room DEFINITELY isn't ADA compatible. The sink is extremely slow draining, and the front desk assured me someone would look at it the next day. There was also an empty soda can in the bottom (open) section of the nightstand. When we returned to our room the second night, I noticed one wall of the bathroom had blood and what appeared to be poop splattered on the wall. We were all probably just too tired the night before to even notice. The sink had not been fixed and was still slow draining. Kudos to the desk clerk who came up shortly after 7:00 p.m. to clean the wall in the bathroom for us (she did offer to move our room, but since we are leaving in the morning and I'm worn out from working more than 12 hours today, we asked just that the wall be cleaned. The refrigerator also could be better -- it is an energy efficient refrigerator with no controls for cooler/warmer -- but everything we put in the fridge was barely cool to the touch even after being in there all night (we did hear the motor running, so it was working). The hotel desperately needs to be updated to be more accommodating in this high-tech world. The wi-fi has been wonderfully fast (rare for hotels), but there are very few outlets in the room. We had to unplug the hair dryer just to be able to charge our two phones. The beds are wonderfully soft, the rooms are quiet (we've not been able to hear anyone walking or talking in the halls), and the customer service has been prompt and has exceeded expectations. Upon asking the front desk clerk this morning about a local attraction my husband and children were interested in, she gave me quick directions and printed out information from the internet. The location is convenient to many things in Alexandria, too. However, great customer service doesn't take the place of poor housekeeping and non-compliant ADA rooms that are a long distance to walk to when walking is already difficult. I'll be back for business again in the future but will be looking at other hotels in the area.

    « Quiet nights rest in a very good room »

    We had a quiet nights rest in a king bed room that was great to work, relax and sleep in. This is a very good hotel and I will be coming back when in the area. The hotel is easy to get to and in a very convenient location with great restaurants close by. I plan on staying here again when in the area.

    « Nice place! »

    Breakfast buffet was good, I had never seen a pancake cooker--they were good. Eggs seemed like powdered eggs but serving as eggs obrien made them pretty yummy! Many options for breakfast. Room was clean and nicely furnished.

    « Nice Stay »

    The hotel was clean and the price was decent. The only complaint I had was the check in lady would only give me one rate. I had to call the Best Western Reservations to get a better rate. The pool and hot tub were nice. Breakfast was decent. There is a Walmart, Jimmy Johns and Menard by the hotel.

    « Great stay »

    Clean room and great check-in. Would definitely stay here again! We only stayed one night, but were pleasantly surprised by the reasonable price and the great front desk help. There are also a nice variety of places very nearby, if you want to find a meal or beverages.

    « Convenient - good value »

    I am repeating much of what others have written but, yes, this accommodation is a great value. The rooms were clean, beds comfortable, and quiet. I was pleasantly surprised at this because it is located in a fairly high traffic area. Yet I did not hear traffic noise or any other disturbance, for that matter. Speaking of location - it is only a block from Fleet Farm. How can you beat that? I will definitely stay there again. Staff was very helpful. I broke my glasses but the desk staff found some tape and helped me get going. Whew - how to get along without my glasses?

    « Good value »

    Staff was clean, courteous, and knowledgeable. The room was clean, bed was comfortable, and water pressure was OK. Breakfast was forgettable. I would suggest other breakfast plans. Easy access to several other eateries and right across the street from a Walmart.

    « Clean, good value »

    The hotel was easy to access and well kept. Our room was clean and featured a king sized bed, free WiFi and complimentary breakfast. We were just traveling through the area and needed a place for one night but will definitely book here again if in the area. Good value for the price.

    « Above and Beyond »

    I stayed at the BW in Alexandria, MN last weekend. The staff is wonderful, as is the management. Once home, it takes me a day or two to empty out the suitcases and put things away. Two days after my return, I had a migraine, and I couldn't find my prescription medication. I called the hotel to ask if anyone had turned them in. They hadn't, but the lady at the front desk volunteered to go check. Sure enough, I'd left them in a dresser drawer along with a swimsuit and towel. I asked her to mail them to me, at my cost, as fast as possible, and she agreed. An hour later, she called back. The manager was headed to Minneapolis later that day and he agreed to meet just off the freeway to give me back my items. My husband met him and offered him $20 for his time and for going above and beyond to help us out. He refused the money. That's first class CLASS! I don't remember their names, but again, thank you!

    « Family »

    Great value. Hotel seems older than it is. But was clean. Location was great. Would stay again due to value. Breakfast was very processed foods. Check was so so. No one was there to check us out. Maid tried to come in room check out morning without knocking at 9:30 am woke us up. Then left and came back knocked shortly after - again waking us up. The beds and pillows were so amazing. We ordered two of the same pillows on line! Great sleep.

    « Excellent »

    We had an excellent stay at this hotel. Clean , excellent breakfast , helpful staff. Would definately reccomend this hotel and would stay again ! The price was very reasonable too and was in a great location !

    « Midwest Nice »

    A very efficient facility with a very attentive staff. All of the areas of the facility were in excellent condition and the location worked very well for our stay. We would recommend this hotel to family and friends.

    « Good Safe Place »

    Good safe place with clean rooms and VERY nice staff who are happy to help with any questions or concerns. Good choice for the area. Situated well with what I needed for the area. Very quiet and friendly people there.

    « Nice Hotel »

    I stayed here for two nights on a recent business trip. There is ample parking with several places to eat and shop at within walking distance. The room was clean and comfortable. I stay at a lot of Best Westerns traveling for my business and must say they have one of the best breakfast set ups I have encountered for this level of a hotel.

    « LOVE the flooring »

    I have never stayed at a hotel that "gets" we done all need carpeted floors to have a warm and wonderful room decor. Thank you for the wonderful air quality because there are zero allergens on a linoleum floor - ALL hotels should follow this. GREAT comfortable beds also .

    « Great stay! »

    Perfect bed! Everything was clean and neat. At the last minute, my sister and I brought her 2 grandchildren with us. The pancake machine and the pool were huge hits. Awesome staff! We came to Alex for 2 concerts.....this place rocks!!!

    « Best Western Alexandria MN »

    The Best Western in Alexandria MN is a very nice hotel. Right off the interstate with plenty of food options available. Walmart is located within walking distance as well as other shopping. If you need a good nights rest, this is the place to be at. The rooms are quiet and although you are just off the interstate, you do not hear all the typical noises you do in other hotels.

    « All work »

    Another great stay here. Staff is friendly and once again the fresh cookies at the front desk are delicious. Breakfast was hot and good just too bad I couldn't get up early enough to really dig into it, only grab and go. Good amenities just didn't have time to enjoy them this time

    « Good hotel »

    The hotel is in need of updating but worth the price. There is no laundry service. Simple breakfast is offered in the mornings. This is a pet friendly hotel. The mattresses are wore out. Great lighting in the rooms.

    « A good stay »

    The good: Vinyl plank flooring, pool and fitness center, quality breakfast options, quiet rooms, easy parking and access out, near a walmart and food places, good staff. The not as good: Very soft water, odd soaps (showering took a while), a little more costly than other locations.

    « Clean, helpful staff, fun restaurants, convenient location yet not to close to 94. »

    I stay here with my students every summer on our way to North Dakota. The staff is always helpful, rooms are clean, and the area is very convenient, not too close to the interstate and just far enough off to get a quiet experience. Close to shopping, fuel, and other needs.

    « Nice hotel »

    The room was clean. Friendly staff. The breakfast was good and had a pancake machine that was cool. The eating area is small, but overall good experience. Check-in and out was easy. We experienced no problems. I think it's a little overpriced compared to other comparable hotels.

    « Good value and convenient »

    Was late but wanted a place with a pool for the kids as we had been driving quite a bit that day, thought it was going to be a lot more money but was pleasantly surprised with the cost and that the pool was open until 11:00 and that it was a nice, clean hotel, worked out perfectly!

    « Comfortable Beds »

    The room was clean. Beds extremely comfortable! Quiet stay for a busy weekend. Tasty breakfast. The only downfall was no microwave. Friendly staff. Always there to assist. right off of I94. Walking distance to Wal-Mart and various restaurants.

    « Excellent Restful Relaxing Quite Place To Stay »

    Great location easy to get to from the Interstate and visible from the Interstate. Was greeted as a rewards member and made to feel I was a valued welcomed guest. This hotel had a brand new feel to it. I had a king room that had excellent lighting and work space that I like when traveling. The desk had a roll out table that was excellent for me to get my work done. I slept well and felt this was an excellent place to stay. I totally enjoyed my stay and will be back.

    « Great hot tub and pool. »

    Great hot tub and pool. Breakfast included. Professional service at the desk. Clean room, TV, internet. View o blue spruce trees. Grounds were landscaped. Came in at midnight so please to be there. Close to everything.

    « Hotel will not hold room »

    Beware...I was informed when I tried to check in at midnight that this hotel DOES NOT hold rooms (not even rooms reserved with a credit card) past 4 pm. They have a policy that if you are arriving after 4 pm, you must call them and let them know you'll be checking in late, or you might not have a room! And if you try get them to see the ridiculousness of their logic, they become extremely combative. Front desk personnel was extremely rude. The rest of the stay was fine, room was clean enough, breakfast was satisfactory (but not enough seating), and hot tub & pool were fine. The hotel is obviously an older facility, but they've tried to do an inexpensive update. Finishes are not all as nice as they could be, but it's good enough.

    « Convenient location »

    We checked in early. The front desk person did let us check in early but appeared unhappy about it. The room was fine. We found hair balled up on two different pillows( that's gross). The pool was ok. The beds were very comfortable. At breakfast there were lots of options. I got biscuits and gravy. It was Luke warm and there were out of sausage. We wife and daughter had better luck with other items. I only had a few opportunities to Talk with the front desk but each time I thought it could have gone better. Would probably stay somewhere else next time.

    « Room cleanliness I give a F »

    I'm a Best Western Gold Member and came in over Memorial Day weekend for a graduation. Pretty disappointed in this hotel. Front desk staff was friendly enough upon check in, very helpful. You can tell it was a smoking hotel at one point due to smell. Stayed on second floor which was a huge mistake because 1st floor rooms looked recently remodeled unlike 2nd floor. Room isn't good size and inspecting it I found beer bottles behind the chair, inch thick dust, hair in bathtub and unclean sheets and comforter. Fridge was sticky with jelly and turned to freeze everything. Being a small town and just having traveled all day with my disabled son I choose to suck it up and use my container of Lysol wipes. Maid was happy to change bedding but no point in pointing things out due to language barrier. AC unit old and run down but worked well enough. Impressed with pool, great temperature and very clean. Hot tub really good size but jet only work half the time. Breakfast was a mess, busy hotel and front desk worker also had to run breakfast, waited awhile to get pancake machine refilled and had to clean our own table. I take that this hotel doesn't see a lot of traffic so perhaps that's what the issues were. But to have the Best Western name on it I expected more than what I got. I will not return.

    « Lukewarm Attitude by Staff »

    Our room was about what one expects when staying in an economy hotel such as this. The most disappointing aspect was the unwelcoming manner of the front desk person. There was no smile during check-in, no sense of warmth, and a lack of personality. It seemed as if a robot was checking us in. Our room was okay, and the location was great. Everything was clean.

    « Great stay in Alexandria »

    My husband and I spent a night at the Best Western in Alexandria Minnesota. It was conveniently located right off the interstate. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and appeared to be recently remodeled. It was very quiet - fortunately we did not hear the extremely loud neighbors that were two doors down from us (you could hear them when you were in the hall, but could not hear them when in our room).

    « Very good motel »

    Everything was fine. We all very much enjoyed the breakfast bar. It had a nice variety. Loved the pancake machine and the blueberry and strawberry toppings. Lots of fresh fruit available and protein items.

    « Pleasant Surprise »

    When travelling cross country you never know what to expect. You go to the internet and try to find something not too expensive but with a good name and you hope you've chosen wisely. In this case we got lucky. This hotel was clean, had nice ammenities (pool & whirlpool), quiet and a nice breakfast. All the staff we encountered went out of their way to help us. I would highly recommend this hotel in your travels.

    « short stay for a reunion »

    We arrived about 3 pm and the parking lot was full so we didn't know what to expect. There was a large wedding party staying there but we still had great service and weren't disturbed when they came in around 11. We diddn't have breakfast but it looked good and had many choices.

    « Good place »

    Good place to stay. Very nice continental breakfast with plenty of options. Staff was very friendly. Only problem with this place was you could see it from the main road but it was a little harder to get into.

    « Close to interstate and Wal-Mart »

    Average Best Western. I do like the laminate floors/no carpet. The bed was comfortable and room was clean. The bathrooms are very outdated and I found the shower head to be a bit low...I'm 5'7". The shower and sink were very slow to drain but I did let the front desk know so hopefully that is corrected for the next guest.

    « Motel review ........................................................................................................... »

    On the way back to Madison, Wisconsin from Seattle, Washington I stopped and stayed at the Alexandria Inn, Best Western in Minnesota. Very nice place to stay, very reasonable price, and excellent staff and amenities. Would not hesitate to stay there again.

    « Family reunion »

    The staff at the Best Western in Alexandria Minnesota were the best. They were efficient, accommodating, friendly, and made our stay an outstanding experience! Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Alexandria, MN!

    « comfortable and quiet »

    Very Clean and comfortable room also quiet. I have stayed at other hotels in Alexandria and this one will be my go to for my stays. affordable and pet friendly is always a plus. Was not able to utilize the breakfast but have stayed at other Best Westerns and have always been wonderful

    « Come as a guest, leave as a friend »

    Very true, we stayed there last week for 4 days, flew to Canada and back for one more night... Mohamed was always great help and Sean always ready to take us arround The rooms big and comfortable and breakfast very good Thanks!!

    « Quick stop »

    Quick stop while traveling to another destination. Bed and pillows were very comfortable. Room was clean and very quiet for a restful night. Hot breakfast with multiple choices. Pet friendly. Would stay again if in the area.

    « Updated, but without attention to detail »

    We stayed here for a night over a weekend. The room was decent sized and had a fridge and microwave. I like how there is laminate wood flooring instead of carpet. The bed and bathroom were clean, but there was trash left behind the recliner in the room. They have recently redone the place, but it seems like it was done hastily or on a budget. The tiling job in the bathroom and sink area was unlevel and the grout lines weren't strait. The vertical areas of tile along the wall were done with the tile name/UPC facing upwards, which functionally is ok but makes it look unprofessional. There were areas in the corners of the room that the sheetrock needed replacing and the paint job was poorly done as well. If they had taken a little more time or contracted better, it would be a very nice place!! The staff was friendly. The breakfast was good as well.

    « Business Trip »

    Very nice and the beds were very comfortable and the rooms were clean and the towels and sheets smelled clean and fresh. The breakfast was very good and had a big variety of items to choose. Very friendly staff.

    « Great Place to Stay »

    This hotel was remodeled since our last stay here. They did a wonderful job! Beds are very comfortable, carpeting has been replaced by wood floors in most areas which makes for a much cleaner environment. Breakfast is not fancy, but is very good and you won't be hungry afterwards. We travel quite a bit and have found this hotel to be a great value for our money. Reasonably priced. Nice amenities. EXCELLENT customer service!! We have stayed here before and will stay here again while visiting family in Alexandria. Good location near highway, stores and restaurants. They are the best!

    « Great place to rest your head »

    We only stayed one night for a job in Alexandria. First of all our check on was fast and courteous with delicious cookies for guest. Walking down the hall where it was clean and smelled like fresh Linnin in the dryer. Walked into the room and to my surprise the floors where a fo hardwood looking vinyl. More hotels should put that type of flooring down, makes me feel more comfortable that there isn't crud ground into carpet and I think it makes the rooms smell better. Beds were very comfortable to the point of not wanting to get out of them. Tv was easy to use with a guide. Refrigerator without freezer and microwave in the rooms. Shower was good, hot and actually had a good stream. All in all the rooms where great. Now as for breakfast it's hot and plentiful, and a great start to the day with pancakes, cereal, biscuits and sausage gravy, sausage patties and some scrambled eggs and much more. Good job Best Western and who ever owns and runs that hotel like it should be run

    « Updated Clean Hotel »

    Very comfortable bed, clean and updated room, close to restaurants, gas stations and the interstate. Room was small if I had planned on staying for an extended period, but I think most people would not be bothered by the size. Friendly staff. Decent breakfast.

    « Typical Best Western stay »

    This hotel is a typical Best Western. It is right off of the freeway and has plenty of parking. The lobby is small, and the elevator is not near the lobby (it is all the way down the hallway of first floor rooms). Hotel offers free Wi-Fi, and the service was good. Room comes with standard amenities (coffee maker, fridge, TV) and offers shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, lotion, and makeup remover. Everything worked as expected. Breakfast offerings include hot and cold food items (eggs, sausage, waffles, cereal, pastries, etc.). To me, the eggs and sausages were a little dry but overall good breakfast selection. The price per night for this hotel felt a little expensive for the area, but I understand that there is a decent amount of competition for this freeway stop town.

    « Nice hotel »

    Been to Alexandria before. This is a nice place. Comfortable, easy location. Clean room, no hassle check in check out. Breakfast is standard fare. Ok nothing special but acceptable. Restaurants nearby are good. Easy access to the freeway.

    « nice surprises »

    You can't go wrong staying here. If you like a pool, this one is great with an oversized whirlpool. And there is a great outdoor sitting area next to the pool. The breakfast was fantastic with great variety. In addition to the normal waffle maker, there was a pancake pouring of batter here though....all automatic. And sugar free syrup that we didn't have to ask for. The furnishings were nice, great mattress, plenty of towels, nice shower, frig in the room. My only suggestions are to replace the pillows with softer ones. Our room was extremely clean, which we really appreciated. Also a very good price....

    « Great hotel »

    The hotel was clean, staff was very helpful, the price was extremely reasonable and a great location. I would recommend this hotel if you are visiting Alexandria area. There are great restaurants near by and shopping.

    « Nice Stay »

    This hotel was clean. The Breakfast was good. It was in a nice location. Our kids loved the pool! This is not a fancy hotel but it is a clean, friendly hotel. The price was great as well. I would stay again!

    « Decent Updated Rooms »

    This hotel is right off the freeway, but the closest exit and bridge is all under construction, so it may be a bit tricky getting to its otherwise convenient location. The hotel is located right next to a shopping area that has a Walmart, Culver's, as well as other fast-food, and convenient gas stations. The hotel itself has updated rooms, but the lobby is in need of an update which is suppose to happen starting this August. Guests may be a bit concerned with how their rooms will be when they see the bucket in the lobby catching the above air conditioner's condensation, but I can assure you my room was nice. My room was very clean and had a comfortable king bed. My bed was comfortable and I slept well, but my pillows, while soft, were a little bit lumpy.The sink in the room is separate from the toilet and shower. I also had a refrigerator which worked nicely. The hotel provides a breakfast and has a pool, but I didn't have the time to try either of them out. The attendant at the desk is tasked with other things, so they may not be at the desk when you arrive. They have instructions there to use the phone to page the attendant. While I didn't have much delay having to page the attendant, it was a little inconvenient to have to go through the motions to page someone; especially when exhausted from traveling all day.

    « Average hotel for price »

    Clean hotel and rooms were clean but kinda crowded, no internet connections would work with the hotels password - small crowded breakfast area, average pool and hot tub - close to a variety of restaurants and lots of shopping though, hotel is pretty much in the center and you can walk to stores and about 8 restaurants.

    « Exceptional Property »

    Best Western did excellent job in converting a distressed property into the Best Western brand. What was a formerly a cut rate, run down and worn motel has now been upgraded to a significant Best Western branded hotel with exceptional service and quality staff.

    « M »

    I have never had such an awful experience at a hotel! First of all, we laid down to sleep, and the comforter was dirty with a smear of something. (?). I can deal with that, just had it replaced. The sink was 95% clogged, so it took minutes to drain. The shower/tub had hair in it from the previous guests. The room smelled so musty that I actually thought about running to Walmart to grab some Lysol! Finally, the day after check in, I found old, dried, moldy dog poop under the desk. This I cannot deal with. We checked out early and didn't sleep a wink! Yuk, yuk, yuk!

    « Typical Hotel »

    Nothing wrong with this hotel, nothing spectacular either. The rooms are of average size. The furniture is large making the ease of movement in the room uncomfortable. We did not try the breakfast, so I'm not able to comment on it.

    « Great room, modern! »

    Loved having no carpet, floor was modern, bed linens were very lovely, plenty of towels. Great tv with a clean remote ready to use. Thanks for having a tv channel listing in the room as well! I still like having a desk and a chair in the room, so thank you BW!

    « Maybe not the best »

    This Best Western has been upgraded but like many motels upgrades help but if the bones of the building are weak? The bath/toilet room was so small that a 300 pounder wouldn't fit. A little noisy from neighbours. The buffet was the standard BW fare. We are on a Road Trip and this was our 5th Best Western becomes tedious. Other than that quibble this is an average three star.

    Great value I should receive my $50.00 gift card soon. Then on the road again... The only issue was a slight odour in the room but could live with it other than that a great stay and good value... Again waiting for my gift card.

    « Great place to stay »

    Check-in very efficient. Room clean and very comfortable. Impressed with the laminate floors. Felt very clean. Great amenities in room. Bed very comfortable. (I wish I had checked the brand of the mattress!) Breakfast ample and good. Staff very helpful at directions, etc.

    « Great stay »

    We were in town for two nights for the Mn High School State Trap Championship. Even though the hotel was full, we found it to be very quiet. The room was clean and there was adequate space for all of our gear. Beds were comfortable. My only complaint was the lack of space in the breakfast area. We will stay here again.

    « Very good for passing through »

    We stayed here en route to Minneapolis. Easy location off the Interstate. Well landscaped and kept property. Next door is a Walmart if you need travel supplies/snacks. Room was clean and average. Breakfast was well stocked and staff was friendly. We didn't swim but the pool area looked spacious and featured a nice outdoor patio area.

    « Motel Stay »

    This was a very good place to stay.They had a extremely great breakfast and the bed was very comfortable. We were close to a exit. Amanda and Dee were extremely good at what they did to make our stay unforgettable.

    « Great start »

    This is a very clean, friendly place to stay. Close to Walmart, restaurants and other attractions. We were in town for a Love & Respect conference. There was hardly anybody there, that we could see, when we checked in. But that night after the conference, there was a long line of people looking for a room. Certainly glad we made our reservation. The pool area and hot tub were great. The whole place was neat and clean. The staff very friendly. Even with all the people, it was quiet. The only negative was the size of the parking lot. It didn't seem like there was even one spot for each room. But otherwise, wonderful.

    « Lost reservation, Last minute save »

    Even though they couldn't find my reservation. I had the printed out confirmation and they gave me a room. The rest of the stay was good. The lot was full when we got in Sat. night, but there was still parking along the edge. We never lacked for anything and encountered no issues while staying there.

    « Great place to stay »

    I love staying here. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The beds are better than what I have at home so I always sleep great, no lumps or bumps! It is always clean there too, you can tell staff do all they can to make your stay comfortable. The pool/hot tub area is great too. Both are roomy enough to hold multiple people with out being crowded. The fitness center is a nice addition too! The breakfast provided in the morning always has a good variety as well, everything from waffles to cereal, to bagels and rolls, and different yogurts and granola's. Their coffee is really good too. We love staying there when we visit family in and around Alexandria, and don't really even consider any of the other places in town anymore.

    The new wooden floors in this motel are great. Also love the new closet door. Excellent choice of items at breakfast bar. If you love waffles they have whip cream, strawberries, and chocolate chips to smother it with. Also love the breakfast sausage and biscuits in gravy. I stay here every week for business and would recommend this motel to everyone that I know. The Best Western Rewards program is one of the best I have belonged too.

    Bare floors in rooms was different, used to carpeting but didn't really matter to us. Close to lots of stores and eating places. Pool was warm and whirlpool was great. Would definately stay here again if in the area!

    « Birthday Party Pool Fun. »

    We booked a couple rooms last weekend for a neighbor's son's birthday gathering. The hotel staff were wonderful to deal with. They offered the breakfast room for the group to have the birthday cake and gift celebration (at no extra charge) then after our children all went swimming as we hung out at the pool. The desk clerk (Heather) was incredibly helpful by asking several times if there was anything we needed to make our stay more enjoyable. No question this was first rate service! The rooms were nice and clean as well as comfortable. We will enjoy another visit here soon.

    « Good Value »

    Nice clean and comfortable. Just what the doctor ordered after an 9 hour drive on the Interstate. The hotel is located within a shopping centre and only a few yards off the Interstate. All conviniences are only a few yards away. (Stores, Gas-station, Restaurants.)

    « Bathroom needs major improvements. »

    Overall this is a nice, clean hotel with one of the best breakfast buffets. The bathroom is very tiny. The shower head was positioned so high up that the water almost hit the other side of the shower. Unfortunately, there is no way to adjust the shower head up or down, so one is stuck having a very unpleasant shower experience. The beds are comfortable and room is clean. I would have rated higher if not for the strange shower and size of the bathroom.

    This Best Western in Alexandria was a convenient stay with easy access to and from the freeway. The room was clean and comfortable, and the price was reasonable. It's location near eating establishments was also convenient. The breakfast was on par with other Best Westerns - very acceptable.

    « Family visit »

    We needed extra beds for visiting family members so picked this hotel. The rooms were consistent with what you would expect. Liked having a fridge and microwave in the room. I had two minor complaints, one was that I couldn't find a comfortable pillow for myself out of the four on the bed. The other complaint was that the continental breakfast on Sunday was poorly supervised, with food running low and out without being replenished in a timely manner.

    Me and one of my other drivers stayed here for 2 nights when we were hauling into north Dakota, I have stayed here in the past still a very nice hotel, stay here anytime I am headed west, very nice beds, a lot of food very close, and a walmart in the same parking lot

    « Great overnight stay »

    Stayed here overnight with my little family. Everything was quite clean and everyone was friendly. Pool room was a little dark, but still nice for our little kids to burn some energy before bed. Good breakfast with a few hot options.

    « BW Alexandria Inn »

    The breakfast buffet had good selection and fresh. Room was clean and comfortable. Only about a block from Interstate 94, but didn't hear any truck traffic. Interior decor looked fresh and new. Tile floor in the bathroom needed some maintenance.

    « Excellent stay »

    This was a great hotel to stay at. It was really nice. Staff very helpful and pleasant. The motel was very nice and clean. They welcome pets too. It was easy to find. It was quiet. Everything seemed pretty new. The breakfast was good too.

    « Convenient Location »

    We were in this hotel for two nights for a family reunion. It was pretty typical of most motels in this chain. The breakfast room was minuscule with the rudest attendant on duty. She may have a very hard life but really shouldn't take it out on the guest. We moved a chair to our tiny table to squeeze in a 5th person, and she made gestures and grimacing faces until we'd returned it to its original spot. Luckily neither the food nor the ambiance of the room encouraged us to stay a second longer than necessary. Our room was comfortable enough, but we had to turn off the AC to avoid the "sleeping in the jetway" effect. Everything in the bathroom worked, and there was plenty of hot water with good water pressure, so it could have been a lot worse.

    « Ok place to rest our head »

    We were just traveling thru and needed a place to stay for the night. I was happy they had a fitness room but it didn't open until 8am so that didn't help me when I was hoping to be back on the road at this time. The room was ok. Beds were comfortable. The room was dirty but it didn't feel clean either. Hard to explain. The bathroom was really small. The sink and mirror was in the room right as you walk in the door and the toilet and tub are behind a door across from the sink. The tub drained really slow and it was like showering in the dark as the light was not very bright at all. The continental breakfast sounded really good. My husband had the biscuits and gravy and he wasn't very impressed. My daughter was really impressed with their cinnamon rolls and I thought their coffee was delicious. Overall... it was an ok place to rest our heads for the night.

    « Some good stuff, some work to do. »

    This stay at the BW Alexandria more up than down. The evening front desk staff was courteous. Check-in was quick. The pool was nice and warm. Its depth is suitable for swimming, but is limited for small children. The hot tub looked dark and unappealing. Our room had very soft beds - if you like that. Definitely on the plus side, the shower head in the bathtub was up nice and high - high enough that someone tall doesn't need to bend down to get their hair wet!! Otherwise, the room left some room for improvement - clearly the vacuum cleaner had not gone further than the bed skirt (i.e., fries and animal cracker pieces under the bed). And the closet door needed maintenance, as it kept coming off its track. Outdoors there is a nice concrete picnic table where we enjoyed our breakfast. All in all, this turns out to be a mixed review. The sub-part stuff can be quite easily addressed.
