    « Very clean. »

    Everything in the room was very clean including newer showers/tub units with great water pressure. The staff was very friendly and helpful and tried to interact with you to see if your needs were being met.


    We only stayed for 2 nights and that was too much. The staff was ok the food for breakfast was terrible the only good thing was the toast. The pool air was too hot.. to bad they had an Amazing CHAIR LIFT, but I could not tell if it worked. Could not stay in the pool area due to heat. Accessible room had a tub in it. Knew before we booked. We were only staying 2 nights. We thought maybe we would stay longer. but mold in the tub and the tap dripping changed our mind. I would NOT recommend!

    « Very nice place »

    We had 2 adjacent rooms that accommodated our family and the dog. The rooms were comfortable and the breakfast was terrific. The bathroom was clean. Parking was close to the room and we did not hear traffic from the highway.

    « Great Stay »

    Pleasant & helpful staff, great room and "great" breakfast. The room was clean, updated and contained all the amenities we needed. A little difficult locating the hotel off the highway. Many choices for breakfast and was far better than your typical "continental breakfast".

    « trying to paint a good picture »

    We booked this room after a long day of driving by finding it on a map at a turnpike rest stop. The rate was OK and I was told it was just off the turnpike, which is not really true. Good luck finding the sign. The small parking lot on the entrance side was lit, but if it was full, and we'd need to park in the unlit back lot, we would have left. The reception area and breakfast room has been updated, but the hotel stinks. Lots of rooms are marked as non-smoking, but the corridor to the rooms and our non-smoking room were smelly. Same with the bedding. Also, I always check the beds for bugs. I did not find live bugs, but found "something" (food crumbs, bug droppings, ?) on the mattress pad under the sheets, took a picture and was moved to another room. The hotel is quiet, but between the smell and the question of what the heck was on the sheets of the first room made me very uncomfortable so sleep was hard to do. TV reception kept going in and out. The indoor pool is small and the water level was low. It was too late to use it even if we wanted to, but it did not look inviting. We ate the complimentary breakfast in the morning which was standard and left without showering...just wanted to get out of there. Then we saw that we were directly across the street from the Ohio Dept. of Rehab and Correction....just saying. Desk staff were nice. If I could, I'd give this location 2.5 stars.

    « Very nice hotel »

    Very nice hotel for the money, clean and quiet, exterior and interior very nice,staff friendly. Breakfast was OK it had a decent selection. Location was grouped in a cluster and behind other hotels, sign is visible from the street.

    « Good Value Clean Hotel »

    We had a good experience at this Best Western. The room was spacious, clean and the bed comfortable. It's nice to get the complimentary breakfast.The front desk clerk was very personable. We would recommend this hotel to families or business travelers.

    « Great value, clean and quiet »

    The room and bathroom were immaculate, the bed comfortable, and the staff was helpful and friendly. After giving us recommendations for nearby restaurants, and discount coupons, we had a good night's sleep in this quiet room. In the morning, we appreciated the good breakfast. Solid value!

    « Great place for the money »

    This Best Western has been remodeled and is very nice for the price. The rooms are spacious, with good beds, refrigerators and microwaves. They serve a good hot breakfast. The business center is small, but serves the need. And to top it off, they have an exceptionally nice staff.

    « Family vacation »

    The room was clean, cormfortable and had ample space. I was visiting family with my 8 and 4 year old grand-daughters. The breakfast was very good and there was a variety of foods to choose from. My grand-daughters liked it too. The hotel is great value for the money.

    « Nasty »

    I am not a picky traveller but I do expect cleanliness from a hotel. This property was nasty. The smell of smoke and mould was very strong in the halls, which filtered into the room. When we went for the complimentary breakfast, it was non-existent! Should've believed other reviews! The sad thing too is that there is no compensation for any of the complaints.....too bad!

    « Best Western Elyria Ohio »

    Beware, I was scammed. There was not a working shower at the hotel. Upon check out I asked Becky (front desk) to validate this check the room and she refused. I asked for a small adjustment in bill, say $10 or $20. She denied this and said only Mgr could do that. Also stated I would be contacted the next day. I called hotel several times in next two weeks, no Mgr even attempted to contact me. This is the service I received, but they got the full amount from my credit card. Watch out everyone!

    « Great Stay »

    We called last minute on a Thursday, and they still had a few rooms left. It's close to the highway and very convenient. We rented a crib, which I thought would be a pack n play, but was a fold out apartment size crib.

    « Unsure about this visit »

    We (myself, 3 grandchildren) had driven 9 hours and made this reservation online beforehand via my IPhone. It was easy to find off of the Ohio turnpike and the lobby was tastefully decorated. Immediately upon entering the room, an unpleasant smell was noted. It had a chemical smell, not from a cleaner, and the AC was off. I turned the AC off and took the kids down to the pool. Before, I stopped at the front desk and informed the front desk clerk of the unpleasant smell. She said if the smell was still there when I returned to the room she would bring an air freshener to spray and " cover the smell." I informed her that I did not like odors/spray in my environment but that I expected fresh air, as much as can be provided with a room AC. The offensive smell was less when we returned and as we spent time in the room it was even less noticeable.

    « nice stay with one exception »

    This hotel had pretty nice reviews from others, so I gave it a try. I was stopping on my way to Ann Arbor. The staff was very nice, location easy to find, although the area is a little confusing due to construction. There are plenty of places to eat nearby (standard chains). The room had obviously been renovated recently and was pleasant and clean, with a micro and refrigerator. The sink was separated from the toilet/shower, which I find convenient. AC worked great, and overall the hotel was quiet, although I don't think there are a lot of people staying here right now. You can hear kids on the second floor running around. The pool is ok. Water was freezing and the pool area was very humid and hot, but it was like that outside, so water temp was welcome. Pool area a little tired and rusty. The bed was ok, but here is the exception: although I was given a no-smoking room, there was a definite cigarette smoke smell in the pillows and bed. It was really off-putting. The room itself didn't smell of smoke and neither did the hallway, but the pillows and bed sure did. Other than that (which did disrupt my sleep) the place was great. I would stay again, but if I smelled the smoke, would ask for a different room.

    « Great stay »

    This hotel was our second try and we couldn't have been more pleased. It was super clean and comfy. We had first tried to stay at the Days inn and it was so unpleasant. Can't go wrong staying here. Great breakfast as well.

    « Excellent stay! »

    We have all goods things to say about this Best Western. Well maintained grounds, great lighting outside, ample parking, close to many restaurants and activities. Rooms were spotless, beds comfortable, friendly staff and very nice breakfast. We highly recommended this Inn

    « Nice Updated Room »

    My daughter and I spent one night at this hotel so I could take a break from driving. It was very easy to find, right off 80/90. We had a speedy checkin and the lobby looked welcoming and updated. The receptionist was very friendly. We like to stop in Elyria as the Sam's Club at the next exit has very low cost gas. The room was very nice, seemed to be updated recently. Nice, newer, clean bathroom fixtures. Granite countertop. Everything appeared clean and there was a mini fridge and microwave. Our room smelled fine, but unfortunately the hallways on both floors smelled like cigarettes. The pool was somewhat of a disappointment. For my daughter, a pool is the highlight of the hotel. The pool was conveniently located on the first floor. The door handle had some issues, making it difficult to enter. When we entered, it was a small warm room with a strange smell. We looked around for towels and found none. We asked someone who was already there and they told us we had to go to the front desk for towels. I hadn't planned on going to the front desk in my swim suit, but didn't want to go back to my room first, so we did. When we arrived back at the pool, we found the water was cold and my daughter went in and said the water had a funny smell. It was the shortest swimming session in our history of hotel pools! When relaxing back at the room, I did see in the hotel info binder that it stated that guests must go to the front desk for towels. It would be great if they could tell guests upon check in or in some other way since it is uncommon. The location is great for ease on and off the expressway and there are many restaurants and stores within a short driving distance. Not much within walking distance and no nice views from the rooms, but room is nice inside. Breakfast was fine, with some hot and cold items. The boiled eggs were much better than the egg ?patties?. I was glad to see oatmeal and yogurt. There was not a whole grain bread item to be found the morning we were there, but there was some fresh fruit. Enough fuel for us to get back on the road!

    « Great hotel with amazing staff! »

    I recently booked 50+ rooms for my employees to stay for a week. My employees expressed extreme gratitude and appreciation for all things, ranging from the hotel's rooms and atmosphere to the attention to detail and friendliness of the staff. I had the pleasure of working with the staff on a daily basis and would be doing them a disservice if I described the experience as anything less than perfect. I would highly recommend staying here and enjoyed the unforgettable experience provided by all. Thank you very much!

    « Very Nice »

    Best Western has changed it's decor, since my last visit; very nice. It was clean and quiet. Check-in was a little slow. with one person in front of me, it took about 20 minutes. I don't think one person should be working the counter on a Friday evening. My room was fabulous, bed very comfortable, only con was the pillows are too small. Breakfast was fresh and hot...good job!!!!!!!!!! I live in the general area, and I just wanted to get away for the weekend and relax; but because I live in the area I had to put to pay a deposit of $200.00. Which I understand to a point. But at 54 years of age, I was not looking to have a wild party and tear up the room. My relaxing weekend cost me $427.00. (wow). I will definitely stay again, if something can be done about the deposit...only downfall.

    « Great! »

    Sue took care of twenty-one people very well at check-in, today. She handled it very well. If I come back to Elyria, I will consider staying at this Best Western again. The hotel in general was clean. I liked Sues personality. I will recommend this hotel and Sue.

    « Best western hotel Elyria Ohio »

    Very clean good breakfast in morning. Will come back. Good services, close to the mall and other stores. Air conditioning works well. Quiet. Good place to rest. Close to highways and restaurants. Good place to stay.

    « Elyria BW »

    Good clean comfortable hotel. Fast Wifi and a good breakfast. It was an ideal location for my needs.Swimming pool was out of order, but I was not going to swim anyway. I would recommend this hotel if you need one in Elyria OH. This review requires a minimum of 200 characters, so I will just fill with random information about nothing in particular. It doesn't require 200 words to tell you it is a good hotel.

    « Clean, Good price! »

    We stayed here after a 9 hour motorcycle ride. It was clean and everything in the room worked. The bed was ok. The location was good (for us anyway). The price was very reasonable and we have no complaints about our stay here. I would recommend this hotel.

    « Not so impressed »

    We stayed here one night for my son's sporting event in nearby Oberlin. Hotel seems like it is a bad neighborhood. Check in was slow after a long day of driving. Room was sufficient enough but the bathroom is extremely small and water was hard to regulate in the shower. Beds were comfortable but the room temp was either blazing hot or freezing cold and noisy. The pool area was nice but NO TOWELS!!!! Someone said (after we were soaking wet) that you had to ask for them at the front desk. Breakfast was ok. The pancake maker was a hit with my 9 year old. I was disappointed that there wasn't any peanut butter for my toast. Overall the town itself is not that impressive and this was a good option given the area. It is an average hotel with an average price if you have a discount. My son stayed at the Days Inn and he told us it was awful so I guess I should consider myself lucky.

    « Good night sleep »

    We arrived late at night for a few hours of sleep and breakfast before continuing our trip. The queen beds were comfy and breakfast was good. Very close to I-90 so it was a good choice for quick 8-hour stay.

    « Anniversary Stay »

    Hotel was great in all categories. The only complaint was the air conditioning BUT it was also 94 degrees outside and it couldn't keep up. Microwave and refrigerator was great and the POOL! It was close to several restaurants and the mall.

    « A bit tired »

    This is an older hotel with carpeting throughout and unfortunately, the carpet holds a lot of smells. It also tends to be a bit dark in the hall ways. The pool is nice and large. Breakfast was actually decent. The area is very busy and rundown and definitely is not an area where you can walk

    « Best Western Inn,Elyria,OHIO »

    This hotel is outstanding! We always have to have an ADA room with a roll in shower. Other hotel chains never got the reservations right but Sue @ Debbie made sure we had everything we needed.The room was very comfortable & we had a very pleasant stay! We will be back!

    « Excellent stay »

    Great Hotel, Great Staff. Very clean very comfortable. Very good value for the money. I dont choose any other hotels than Best Western, and this last stay will keep us coming back.The front desk girl was very welcoming, helpful, and informative, they were having a problem with the pool, and she told me about it, but my grandchildren enjoyed it anyway.

    « Convenient location »

    Stayed 1 night while driving cross country. Hotel was convenient with nice breakfast, overall great value. Did not use any of amenities (pool, business center, fitness center, etc). Front desk very helpful.

    « Quick Overnight on the disappointing side »

    We stopped at the BW Griswold in Elyria, OH after a long day on the road. The staff was courteous and helpful during our stay, the internet quick and reliable, but the hallways and room smelled of a bit too much commercial disinfectant which seemed designed to mask the smell of cigaret smoke. Our room window was a single, fixed type and could not be opened to permit fresh air into the room. The air conditioner was good, but on the loud side. The breakfast fare was average, but did feature hard boiled and scrambled eggs. There was no microwave immediately available to warm food, but staff, when available, could heat food from the breakfast bar.

    « A pleasent stay »

    I have to admit I stay in a LOT of hotels. This is one of the few that recognised me as a "top level" Best Western customer with a bag containing water, chips and an energy bar. The room was fine for two people and the shower excellent. There was a huge fridge not to far from the bed and these I get annoyed at. How many of us have a fridge at home that kicks in regularly as you are trying sleep? Most of the time they are in the kitchen well away from you. That is the ONLY negative on the whole experience here. VERY friendly and helpful staff. It is also made easier to get there as the road has been changed near the hotel. Before there was an overpass and various turns could not be made. That has all gone and it is a regular set of traffic lights making arrival/departure nice and simple. I'd happily stay here again.

    « Great value »

    The staff is to be commended for making this a great stay! They did their best to meet out needs. I loved the convenience of the location! I really like that the roads were redone to make the access easier and safer. Only improvement I would make would be to the breakfast food, that is, include bacon or sausage links. The donuts went very fast and were constantly needing to be replenished! Regarding the sleep quality, I found the small pillows to be uncomfortable.

    « Friendly service, decent breakfast, but a few quirks »

    The staff at this location were all incredibly friendly from the front desk person all the way to housekeeping and management. There wasn't a single employee who looked unhappy or was mean. The room was clean and had no issues. The quirks were our first night there was a big truck who had it's engine idling just outside our room all night. There were some constructions people parked in the lot taking up a lot of space and one of them apparently stayed out there all night? I dunno, it was pretty loud and I could hear it over the fan in the room AND a pair of headphones. I let the front desk know and I was promised it wouldn't be an issue the next day, and it wasn't. The shower was designed in such a way that it was nearly impossible to not get water all over the floor in the bathroom. The combination of the curtain and the nozzle just wasn't that good. Location and price wise we thought it was fantastic. Very quiet and near places to eat. We would definitely come back again.

    « My Stay »

    Good hotel, the bed was comfortable , but I would have prefered larger pillows.;For the amenities, I would have like a Lotion mini bottle and a bigger soap bar, but I am sure the desk clerk would have accomodate me with those. As for the breakfast I would have preffered a waffle maker to a pancake maker, and possibly a fruit salad.

    « This place is unassuming to drive up to but a real GEM!!!!! »

    The first time I stayed here I didn't expect out of the ordinary. Was I pleasantly surprised!! It all starts when you are greeted by Sue (during the day) at the front desk. The consummate professional. She will make sure you have a room that suits you and on subsequent visits, if you like, will make every effort to get you your favorite room. She remembers all of her guests and greets them when they return. The others who man the front desk are ALL very helpful and cheery. The housekeeping staff is nothing short of excellent. They sanitize and seal the toilets, make sure the rooms are spotless, and are never rude!! The owner is a great person and if you happen to meet him he will make you feel very welcome. This is my home away from home when I am in the Cleveland area.

    « Elyria stop-over »

    Planned stop at Elyria, OH on way to Holland, MI. Overall quality of room and service was good. Nothing fancy but a good value. Room was clean and comfortable. Good restaurants, shopping and gas near-by. Convenient access to I-80.

    « hotel review »

    My husband and I stay here often. This hotel and location work good for us. We have business close to this location every other month and when a room is available at this specific hotel we stay here. The staff is always very friendly and helpful. This hotel is a lot cleaner than other surrounding locations.

    « Interior is far nicer than exterior »

    The interior has been nicely updated and the amenities are a great value. They even have a pool and work-out room! If you need to stay in this part of Ohio, this is a decent place--even though there appears to be a parole office across the street.

    « Best Western... Second best »

    Room... Lots of bugs, most dead on the walls... Enough said. It's a strange place to be sure. Passing through and needed to rest. If only we had gone another exit or two. I'd post some photos but happily I left most of my belongings in the car. Did I mention that the sheets and towels seemed well worn and not clean? We were too tired to deal with the front desk which was another issue... They were multi task challenged. It all makes for those great travel stories to share later.

    « rude staff »

    I called 3 days prior to my reservation to cancel one of my planned nights. The manager asked whether everyone in my group planned to call and cancel. I told her I did not know because I was only responsible for my own plans for the trip, as all members were. Then she complained that 3 people had called before me. Not my problem. I was well within my right and the cancellation policy to do so.

    « Good value for the money »

    Sometimes you need a Ritz Carlton and sometime you just need a clean room at a fair price. This hotel was clean, recently updated and close to where we needed to stay. If you are visiting Oberlin College it's a great option.

    « OK Best Western »

    Stayed overnight. Needs updating. Comfortable but no frills. Price was right and I needed the points. Stayed at many Best Westerns and this one was OK. Large room - just needs to be updated. Wanted water but they don't give any.

    « 2/25/16 »

    i've stayed here before. it is a nice place with a pool & exercise room. the staff is very nice. the breakfast is good. the heating unit is quiet & worked well. room was cleaned well. don't mind staying there again.

    « Stay Pros and Cons »

    We had 15 rooms for The Eagles Bowling Tournament being held in Lorain for two nights. Picked the Best Western because of pricing, fitness room, pool and hot breakfast. Plus it being recently remodel was a please. The front desk staff was super nice, hotel was recently remodel, and had a pool. Not sure if they hired the cheapest contractors they could find for the remodel or decided to make it a Do It Yourself Project. The fit and finish of the remodel looks poor. In our room every thing hanging- lights, mirror, pictures, door to hallway (yes the door) was crooked.. The walls and doors seemed to be paper thin as we could here everyone and everything it seemed. It seems that most rooms on the hot and cold were switched on the sink faucet.The whole hotel seem to smell like your at the pool and we were on the opposite side of the hotel from the pool. We had a smoking room and I know it is going to smell like smoke but the stale cigarette smoke was so over powering it caused headaches. Cleanliness was okay- I have seen clean hotels and I have seen dirtier. The hot breakfast Saturday was missing the hot food items and a lot of cold food items but Sunday was loaded up with both items. Fitness area which was my only want, I got to work my frustration more then my fitness in that area. I attempted 3 out of 4 pieces of equipment before giving up because they didn't work right or at all. Thank goodness for the two stairwell and two floors that I just did laps in. Never made it to the pool because our room key wouldn't the door. One of our rooms refrigerator didn't work, reported to the front desk. Someone looked at it but nothing was done about it. Loved the beds and might have got a good night sleep if we didn't hear everything. For what we were doing and in town for the hotel worked but I would stay just to stay.

    « Excellent Hotel »

    We were there for a funeral and Sue, who checked us in was so nice and fun to talk to. She gave us directions to the funeral home which we greatly appreciated. The room was perfect and the breakfast was also. I find hotel coffee not good but theirs was great. If in the area again we will definitely stay there.

    « Good as usual »

    Stayed here again for my sons Junior recital and was greeted with the experience I am used to. Staff is still excellent, and the same as years ago. Rooms are nice, breakfast has an offering for almost everyone. Finally have the freeway fixed, so getting to the place is much easier. All in all the stay was what I have come to expect...Excellent. Sue the day manager is a sweetheart, and all the staff are friendly and helpful. Unless something changes, I'll continue to stay there as long as my son is at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music (2 more years!!!) Also there is a Speedway gas and mini-mart a half block away. If your staying a few nights, and drink coffee, get yourself a loyalty card. I received to free drinks while there.

    « Good for the time stay »

    Overall the hotels was ok for one night stay. Location was easy to find, close for where we were going the next day. I didn't like the pool, needs an update. Breakfast was ok. Maybe more options in meat but ok for the day.

    « Mixed Review »

    We booked a nonsmoking room and even signed a form during check-in acknowledging we were staying in a nonsmoking room. Our room was on the 2nd floor at the end of the hallway next to the stairs. The room smelled of smoke upon entering. We immediately called the front desk. Apparently this hotel doesn't enforce their nonsmoking policy, as the front desk staff offered to come up and spray a room deodorizer. Parts of the room were filthy, but the bed and bathroom were clean. Our room had been partially upgraded but had older faulty sink and tub faucets and an old microwave. Bed was comfortable. Room location was very noisy. Parking lot lights were not working, so the lot at the far end of the building was very dark at night.

    « Smelly with apathetic staff »

    The price was in the high median for other places to stay in the area. The rooms and entire second floor smell strongly of smoke. Although the room was reasonably clean, there was a container of pld food in the microwave that was there for some time. The staff was apathetic when I complained.

    « nice enough for a few nights »

    We stayed here for two nights while we were visiting from out of town for a wedding. Overall the facilities were very nice and clean, parts of the building were clearly recently remodeled. The breakfast was fine for a hotel, nothing spectacular. The staff at the front desk were overall very nice and helpful. There were a few cons: we had booked a suite online that was listed as two bedrooms we thought would be connected by a shared space. This was really just two adjoining rooms so I'm not sure what the premium price was for. We were in room, and our friends in the room next door the room had a noticeable odor. Also a few parts of the room were very outdated...the microwave and the fridge. The biggest pro was probably the nice-ness for the price. If the wedding wasn't in Elyria I would have stayed closer to Cleveland.

    « Good overnight in Best Western, Elyria, OH »

    Stopped at the Best Western in Elyria on our way home from spending the holidays with family on the east coast. The motel is convenient to I-80 and in the greater Cleveland area. Staff was friendly and efficient, the complimentary breakfast was good, internet was reliable and had a strong signal for being at one end of the motel, room was clean and beds comfortable. All in all, a good place to spend a night on the road.

    « Convenient and Stylish »

    This Best Western is a very comfortable contemporary style, and is convenient right off the thruway. We found a couple small problems with the hotel, but our overall experience was good.I would recommend this hotel to anyone I know that is traveling through this area.

    « Restful night »

    This is a nice hotel with very friendly staff. The pool is great and i really enjoyed the breakfast. Make sure to have your AAA memberships benefits and discounts added when you arrive to enjoy an amazing discount off the overall price of the hotel.

    « we had an amazing time! »

    The Jacuzzi was amazing and the bed was very comfortable. had a great stay. shower and bath floor could have been cleaner. but the Jacuzzi was very clean. the hotel pool was kinda cold. check in lady didn't really explain or didn't act like she knew how to check us in? but over all stay was Great

    « "BEST" Best Western »

    This is the "BEST" Best Western we have ever stayed at, and we just stayed at 3 different ones over the holidays. It's rooms are CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN!!! BED is GREAT. We slept so good, No doors slamming all night long, or rude people yelling outside in the halls. Good hot and plenty of food to get us going on our way in the morning. (eggs, sausage, pancakes + all the other stuff) The room was BIG, everything WORKED!!! Parking right outside our window, on ground level. These things are all big A+ in our book. Everyone was wonderful to talk with and had a smile on their face, and made us feel welcomed. They do have a pool, we just didn't get to use it. If we EVER are in this area again we will be staying here again.

    « Probably not the worst in the area »

    As several others have said, "OK," but I would add "overpriced" by about twenty dollars. I am puzzled at those who provided accolades, because I found the hallways on the dingy side, although the rooms were...well, OK. And the breakfast was better than that: as complete as one would find in this class of accommodations. What was shocking, however, was the state of the fitness room, which seems to have been totally abandoned: the equipment was cheaply made, but that was an irrelevant consideration, since none of it worked. Even the TV had been removed! If you are not a fitness buff (most motel guests aren't, at least not while on the road), then you could presumably do a lot worse than staying here.

    « Best in the area »

    This is the best hotel in Elyria as far as I am concerned. I stayed two weeks ago and will stay again this coming weekend. I visit family there fairly regularly and I have stayed at most of the hotels nearby. This one is modern, the staff is very friendly and helpful, and my room was very nice, especially for the cost. I had a fridge, microwave, and a good bed. It was very clean. I did not smell smoke like another reviewer suggested and I am very sensitive to it. The breakfast was very good! The coffee even tasted great, which is unusual for hotel coffee. I am very pleased and will only stay here from now on.

    « Excellent Value »

    We were looking for a reasonably priced room for one night and this hotel fit the bill. Room was very clean, staff was very friendly, and hot breakfast was excellent! Hotel is very well located, right off the expessway.

    « Great value and convenient to places we needed to go »

    First a warning, If you are coming from the south on 57, your GPS may try to have you turn right on Midway, then left, then left on 49th street. This used to take you onto a bridge over 57. The bridge is being demolished, so turn left at the light either before or after Midway. Room was large with plenty of storage space. And, for those of you who have read other reviews of ours, you know that we have a thing about the bathroom. This had the best tub of any motel during our two week trip (deep, wide, and plenty of hot water). Breakfast was good, but not as many choices as some other places.

    « Back again for stay number 8 »

    Just to let you know they finally had an elevator installed. Still can do the stairs, but nice to know it's there if you need it. Same friendly staff, nice breakfast. Stay there twice a year and it has only gotten better. Keep up the good work

    « The best Small road Best Western hotel We ever stayed »

    What a surprise, not expected. We choose this location because it was close to a place we were going to visit . We had about 6 hotel choices, but despite some not so good customer commentaries we choose this location, base on price,location and convenience. Big surprise to find such a clean place, warm, nicest employees ,always with a smile in their faces, nice rooms, very clean and renovated Our two rooms( we were politely asked to relocate to another room during our 5 days stay, as they wanted to finalize the room bathroom renovation, of course, it was asked in a very nice way, and they never force us to do it . W agreed to move, and the new room was even in a better shape that the first one we got. Room were spotless, bathroom was also spotless, services offered like free wifi was good,same as tv channels, carpet, bed and pillows The morning free breakfast at a very clean and cozy room was one of the best free breakfast we have had in this kind of road hotels The offered breakfast was always kept with plenty of food. We had breakfast 5 mornings ,and there was plenty of food every day Breakfast included, pancakes,4 choices of cereals,eggs omelette, with ad without cheese, patties, hash potatoes, choice of 4 juices, bread and pastries, milk,fresh coffee,choice of instant oatmeals..what else to expect. I have read some commentaries before my stay about the location, been close to a road renovation and " supposedly " a dept. of correction rehabilitation offices. It is true, but is another government office, that in any case put into jeopardy ,the safety of the place. Ah, there are 3 more hotels in the same area, and it does not look that this particular office offer any insecurity. It is just an office ,almost empty during the day and it is not too close to the hotel It look to be unfair to write a negative commentary on this nice hotel because of such outside government facilities ,been close. Sincerely, it was a wonderful time, in a nice small hotel,nice employees always with a smile and salute in their mouth. Is a hotel I would recommend for a short or even long stay Small heated interior pool where kids and adult had fun..

    « Wonderful staff »

    Extremely satisfied with everything about this location. Check in staff very helpful and will go the extra mile to help you out. Was there for 2 nights and was so comfortable it was unbelievable. Would stay here again if the opportunity arises. My compliments to all the employees.

    « Very Nice Staff »

    Staff was very friendly, the hotel was nice, clean and efficient for the rate. I liked the way the rooms connected for families. Breakfast was good. We just wish the pool would have stayed open later than 10pm. When you are out of town visiting it is hard to get back into your room by that time.

    « Great Place after a Long Day of Driving »

    Very impressed with Best Western particularly this hotel. My boyfriend and I had been traveling across the country to relocate for a new job, and this hotel was a great stopping point in relation to the highway. The room was clean, very modern, and the breakfast in the morning was hot and great to fuel up before another day of driving!

    « recently remodeled, good value for the price »

    this hotel has been recently remodeled and is a good value for the price. very friendly staff, decent breakfast and nice rooms. only complaint is the low flow shower was difficult to adjust to get any pressure

    « Great! Located right of the highway!!! »

    My husband and I stayed here while visiting family just outside Cleveland. This Inn is clean, friendly, had free parking, free wifi and FREE complimentary breakfast. Not just bagels and coffee, there was a pancake machine, eggs, sausages.....etc. no complaints at this best western!! We will be back

    « On the road again »

    Another excellent stay. The staff at this hotel really take pride in their work and it shows. We always get top notch service and a clean, fresh room. Definitely the best hotel in the area. I do recommend making a reservation as this place gets more popular as time goes on.

    « Headed West »

    After leaving Canada and heading West I have used Best Western Motels almost exclusively. I find that the internet service and the hot breakfast are worth it to refresh me on my travels. The staff was very attentive and answered any questions I may have had to the best of their abilities.
