    It was great. We needed a place to stay for the tournament and I chose here because of the reviews. We were not disappointed with the stay. Kids enjoyed the pool and breakfast was good. Lots of other kids though and parents let them run around the hotel. That was the only thing I didn't appreciate however disrespectful kids aren't the hotels fault.

    « Average »

    Need more parking little bit more cleaning different variety of breakfast matter that has center or channels on TV Update rooms update plugfor iPhones and security a lot of people outside don't stay there at the hotel Rome around in the parking lot text about the back trucks view

    « Very good »

    Nice place, one semi-irritable staff member. In all, definitely recommended. Good location and a very good quality (for the price) breakfast. My room was "like new" and clean and quiet. I can't comment on other Kelso hotels but this one is excellent.

    « Good choice for the location »

    Good Best Western value, great breakfast, comfortable room, very helpful and friendly staff, the best choice for the location, convenient to the Mt St Helens area, access to the coast and the highways.

    « Good for a one night stay »

    Kelso is not the "garden" spot of the state, but if you're traveling north or south on Interstate 5 for some reason you might need a hotel in this area. This hotel is fine, certainly nothing special, but adequate. I wouldn't suggest walking the area, About a 5 minute drive away is a Sizzler restaurant that we found to have excellent food.

    « Whew!! A Port in a Storm »

    We're on the way home from Sacramento. With 120 miles left to go, the sky opened up, and all the animals were lining up, two-by-two. Well, I can take a hint. So, we scooted into Longview for some dinner, and I called the Aladdin. With the rain that was coming down, getting close to dark, and one dead headlight, I didn't think driving the rest of the way home was a brilliant idea. Got a room reserved, and 30 minutes later, I'm in it writing this. I picked Aladdin cuz we've been here before, and know it to be a nice place. Happy to see nothing's changed.

    « Excellent Best Western »

    My husband and I stayed at this Best Western on our way out of Mt. St. Helen. It's a bit off the highway, but no problem to find with a gps. We did not have a reservation, and the night manager was excellent in giving us an "online" best rate (lower than the rate quoted by BW general reservation number). The room was clean, bed comfortable and breakfast excellent - scrambled eggs, sausage, hash browns, real granola, and the other usual fare. There is a very nice indoor pool.

    « One you can count on »

    Always a pleasure to stay in a place that has consistency, great breakfast to start the day. Would recommend to close or new person. On our trip across the west coast or inland Best Western works for us.

    « One-night stay in Kelso for Scottish Festival »

    This is a nicely kept facility with a very nice breakfast and comfortable room; well-lighted parking, ample spaces, handy entrances/exits to rooms. For those who like swimming, there is a very nice pool right off the lobby, although we did not use that ourselves. A nice ramp into lobby for those needing handicap accessible facility. Although I felt the bed was comfortable, my wife did not think it was. But the room appeared to be adequately clean.

    « Pretty Average. Expectations Met »

    We stayed here over labour day long weekend for 2 nights. Pros: -Easy to find off the I-5. It didn't take long to navigate the area. -Rooms were somewhat updated and linens were clean and fresh and beds were comfortable. -Continental breakfast included. Decent food items as well. Eggs, hashbrowns, sausage and fresh fruit were some of the options. -Staff was friendly and courteous. Cons: -Building has been rehabbed, but it's still old so the hallways and stairwells smelled musty. Rather unpleasant. Ashtray and smoking area is located immediately outside of the side door. I also found that to be distasteful. -I found that it was quite loud. Everything from hearing the neighbouring guest's shower running to cars driving by outside to doors opening and closing in the hallways. It was rather disruptive especially when I was just nodding off. All in all, it was an average accommodation that fulfilled a need. I usually look for Best Western's because I know that they are a reputable chain, but I would likely consider staying elsewhere if I was in the area again.

    « Passable for a short stay »

    We were looking for an inexpensive place to overnight to break a long journey, and chose this member of the Best Western chain based on its location and the fact that it is part of a well known brand. The reviews at the time were mixed, but had enough good ones that I thought it would be a safe bet. When we arrived, we noticed right away that the building is a little more run down than the photos suggest, but the reviews mentioned that there was some updating going on, so we didn't worry about it too much. When we checked in and got our key cards, we went along to our room, and when we opened the door, we were surprised to find someone else's luggage in the room! We went back to the front desk and explained what happened, and the desk clerk seemed very surprised, as the computer showed that the guest had checked out...hmmmm. We were given another room, but it made us rather nervous, since there didn't seem to be any explanation as to how this happened, and we wondered whether someone might be able to access our room because of the same mistake...hmmmmm We went for dinner to a restaurant that was suggested by another staff member, which turned out to be a great place, and lots of fun. We came back, planning on an early night so that we could get an early start in the morning. As we spent more time in the room, it became very apparent just how thin the walls and floors are, and how much noise passed between them from other guests. The people above us sounded like the were re-arranging the furniture every 30 minutes or so, and we could hear most of the conversation going on next door. I realize that this building is old, but, really, Best Western shouldn't be hanging its name on this kind of place without a complete renovation. The carpets were old and needed replacing, and the fixtures were all pretty tired as well. To be fair, I think the beds in our room had been replaced, and were quite new and very comfortable. Thankfully, all the travellers above and around us were pretty quiet by around 10:30 or so, and we actually had a very good night's sleep, but I shudder to think what might have happened if there had been active children, or people who wanted to party a little - it would have been impossible to sleep. Breakfast was, in a word, disappointing. I wasn't really expecting much, because the price point of this motel is relatively low, but the eggs were pretty tasteless, the sausages greasy, the fruit salad was mostly melon, had already run out, and was not replenished. There were three cereals on offer, but little else, and the bread/bagel/muffin choices were not very nice quality. The best thing they had was the waffle maker, which turned out very nice waffles. The staff, apart from the room mixup, was pleasant and the rooms were clean, but I wouldn't stay here again, because it's just too noisy.

    « Great stay »

    Never go wrong with a best western. Friendly helpful front desk staff. Safe parking, well lit at night. Clean tidy rooms, comfy beds, lots of towels. Generous continental breakfast. Quick check out. Thank you

    « Great! »

    Really nice place with big & clean and big rooms. Check In was quick and really friendly. There is also an indoor pool (which I didn't visit). Parking around the building is free. Breakfast is basic and OK. I shall be back.

    « Outstanding maintenance details »

    It is unusual when a hotel has a perfect score on annoying items such as AC, lavatory drain, bathtub drain, shower head, door latches, lights, TV etc. This place was perfect in that respect. Amenities excellent. Flaws: breakfast room was a little small in view of the high occupancy.

    « Memorable Stay »

    Very clean facility and comfortable room. Competitively priced. Great breakfast. Staff very friendly/helpful and professional. Great stay. Enjoyed my stay...the area is also very quiet/relaxing. Hotel in walking distance to various businesses/restaurants.

    « Comfort »

    Excellent restful nights. My family and I will definitely stay there again. My family and I will definitely recommend this hotel to all our family and friends. We loved our stay in Washington State. The weather was nice and the sights were very pretty.

    « We were disappointed!!! »

    If we can stay at Best Western we do. This stay started out pretty good, Franklin was so helpful when we got there. He put us in a pet room but it was right under the stairs so I asked to be moved, so he called his manager and he put us into another room. UGH!!! This room is supposed to be form the disabled. We were so disappointed in this room. When we took a shower there was water running out of the bathroom into the main room almost into the main hall way of the motel. The shower curtain didn't hang over the shower stall like it should ( see pictures). When my husband pointed this out to the manager that was on duty she informed him she knew that there was something wrong but it is what it is. Nothing could be done about it. When I tried to show her pictures of it she snapped at me and said "I know all about it HE ALREADY TOLD ME WHAT'S WRONG"! I informed I would be sending a review to trip advisor and she said of course and it's all my fault. I said no you just need to get someone to fix it.

    « Small but efficient with amenities- wifi, indoor pool, breakfast items and variety were excellent »

    Although the room is smaller compared to other Best Western or other hotels, it is ok for a one night stay. There is no sink in the bathroom and no table to eat but again, the room is clean. I always love the pillows and comforters! Breakfast starts at 6 which is unusual for some hotels, but it is great that breakfast starts early. Food variety and quality is excellent in this Best Western hotel.

    « Not excited about this hotel »

    Looks outdated on the outside and in the hallway. Room was more updated and comfortable enough. Bathroom just okay. Breakfast okay. Staff could not find my daughter's most prized stuffed bear that was left there. Though they were polite about it, it didn't seem that they understood the importance of it. I do not understand how it could not be found when we know for certain it was left there. Disappointed.

    « Our Opinion »

    Our stay at The Best Western (Aladdin) was quite nice. We felt the staff was helpful. The pool provided entertainment my nephews. The food was plentiful, but we didn't care for the potatoes or eggs. The eggs and potatoes were bland, but that was probably do to no salt for a reason. Salting after cooking doesn't taste as good whennot salted during cooking. I understand some people cannot have salt. We really liked all the staff, Our thanks to all the staff for doing a good job.

    « Not. Worth. The. Money. »

    This Best Western is by far the worst BW I've ever stayed in. It is NOT worth the money. I will attempt to be objective. Our room was old and needed a remodel. I looked out the window to check our view - which revealed a wall about 2-3 feet away. It was the pool building. Next, the bathroom. Ugh. The toilet seat was disgusting. Toward the "rear" of the seat was a brown, crusty looking area. Maybe burned? I don't even know. The light bulb in the bathroom was burned out. Not a big deal but the toilet paper roll that was on the holder was almost finished. I don't like to waste, but it kind of looks cheesy and cheep to leave it for a new guest. Or maybe just leave an extra roll knowing that this roll won't last long. The A/C was weak at best. We ran it all night on the coldest setting, and it barely made the room cool. I was bummed because they had no Kleenex in the room. Alas, my wife found the box in the morning. She pulled one out - and that was it. Just one tissue. That is a housekeeping issue. Any decent housekeeper would have felt that the box was almost empty and put a new one in. Also, there are very few outlets to be specific there was only three in the whole room that we could use. And these were a pain because our charger plugs literally fell out because the outlets were so "loose." Not a big deal but the quantity was a pain with iPad and phone chargers. Anyone who stays in BW's regularly knows that they have shampoo, conditioner and lotion on the counters. This BW had one little bottle of shampoo/body wash all-in-one. And only one. Cheep. Okay for a $80-100/night hotel but not $170. Breakfast - decent selection but it only runs 7:30-9:00am. An hour and a half? Are you kidding?! Then there was the rotten apple. Okay, the other fruit seemed okay, so maybe it was a fluke. Added to all the other stuff though...ugh! Bottom line- this hotel is not worth the money. Stay anywhere else. For what is charged for this hotel, management should be ashamed. This is just one opinion, but I hope it helps you make a decision when looking for a hotel in the area. Safe travels! Photos of toilet and view included

    « Family with two kids »

    Check in is fast. The front desk staff is very helpful. The breakfast is good. The room is clean. The swimming pool is a bit small but clean and it was not crowd on my stay. The bed is a bit soft but may be only my personal preference.

    « Not good »

    This hotel is old and desperately in need of upgrades. Our room had a small kitchen area, but everything was very outdated. The room also had a horrible odor. In fact, the entire hotel had an awful smell. Had we not been exhausted from just getting off a plane, we wouldn't have stayed. We couldn't get out of there fast enough.

    « Great service »

    The room was clean! The hotel hallways, etc were clean. The breakfast in the morning was a nice touch and very good. The front deskman was very helpful and friendly. It was nice to have access to a washer and dryer after we had been cycling from Canada.

    « mr »

    typical BW hotel...breakfast was sparse but what you would expect. Have trouble with their reward program, sometimes have to phone their hidden number to ensure points are rewarded. they advertise biker friendly but no evidence they treat bikers any different, no special service or parking stalls.

    « Clean, comfortable and friendly »

    This Best Western was a great surprise. The desk clerk was efficient and competent. She helped find a great restaurant to have dinner in the area. The room was clean and so was the bathroom. Very satisfied with this hotel.

    « Excellent breakfast options »

    Thought the sleeping was decent and breakfast bar options ranged from oatmeal (which I ate), cereals, waffles, fruits, yogurt, and traditional fare such as scrambled eggs, sausage, etc. Lots of toppings to choose from...

    « Best Western Kelso clean and convenient »

    The room was clean and the beds were nice. Breakfast was good. Only negative is that there isn't an elevator so you have to carry your luggage up to the 2nd floor. Also, the windows rattled when you walked across the floor. Hotel is convenient if you're going to Mt. St. Helens.

    « road trip »

    On the way to a softball tournament , stayed here for a break. staff was great-we were tired. I thought for the price the room was very good. The bathrooms are dated , but were just fine. the breakfast was very good , wish the chairs not as loud

    « Nice friendly staff. Super clean rooms and right off the freeway. »

    Staff were very nice and helpful. The room was clean as were the linens and towels. Hotel was right off of I-5 and easy to find. Rates were exceptional, I would recommend the Best Western Alladin Inn to anyone.

    « Perfect pit stop, Eureka to Anancortes »

    8 hours from Eureka, 4 hours from Anacortes Ferry Terminal, perfect place to stop during our trips to San Juan Island. Quiet, clean, and comfortable. Breakfast included but better one at Grounds for Opportunity Cafe in Kelso, 15 min walk from hotel.

    « Mt. St. Helens-Johnston Ridge Observtory »

    This is the closest Best Western to the Johnston Ridge Observatory, so if you're planning on shooting the Milky Way over the mountain, this is your place. Lots of good food in the area as well, and not too far from the Oregon/Washington state line. The hotel is not right on the freeway either, nice and quiet.

    « Great Staff and Easy Access to Freeway and Town »

    Great access to Freeway, but not adjacent, so location is quiet. Rooms was VERY clean. All staff was friendly and well versed in the art of Customer Service. Rate was as expected of Best Western - a little higher than others, but still fair. This property is on the older side and the area is not a typical go-to spot. If you are a "New" addict/snob, this is not the place for you. For those of you looking for a clean and comfortable motel where the staff has customer service skills, this is the place for you.

    « Adequate but not special »

    This is an older property. It is clean and comfortable. However, the floors are uneven, especially in the hallways. The soundproofing is weak, especially in regard to the plumbing; you will know when your neighbors use the toilet or shower. It is a safe and comfortable motel despite its aging difficulties.

    « Clean hotel for the cost! »

    I have stayed at this hotel many times and it always offers friendly staff, clean room and a great location. The only thing I would let people know is there is always a subtle odor of a light damp smell in the hallways I notice it every time. But I know this just an issue with this area since it always seems to be raining! For the money you can't beat the value of this hotel.

    « Good deal »

    Beds was comfortable hotel hall way smelled so bad I had ask for a room sway from the front street I did not get little disappointed hotel staff was nice it is a old hotel Rate was good l would stay again for the good deal.

    « Conference convenience. »

    Great location for a conference at the fair grounds. Stores and restaurants all in walking distance. Staff was freindly. Room was clean, and comfortable. The breakfast set up was really good. Eggs, hash browns, and sausage. Pasteries, and waffles. And an assortment of cereals. Parking was a little tight with the rest of the search & rescue people staying there. Plenty of entrances where ever you park so the walk is short to get out of the rain.

    « Best in Kelso/Longview »

    Clean, comfortable and very cost effective. The rooms are getting a little dated but they are well maintained. They some have rooms with full size refrigerators, stoves, kitchens, etc. Britney is great and the rest of the staff is also very good. The parking lot can get crowded on some nights.

    « Great place to stay during a visit to Mount Saint Helens »

    From checking in to checking out everything was great. The staff was the greatest and the Wi-Fi was quick. This was my second stay there and I look forward to my next stay there. There is a great place to eat next door and the Won Ton soup is outstanding.

    « Great place to stay near Mt. St. Helens »

    We stayed overnight here on the way to Mt. St. Helens. It was quite convenient to I-5 and many restaurants and shopping. The staff was friendly and helpful and we were upgraded to a double queen suite. The room was spotless and the pillows and bed were comfy. We had an old fashioned shower head with great water pressure and plenty of hot water. The room was quiet in spite of being near a heavily traveled shopping area. Breakfast included.

    « comfortable and convenient »

    Stayed two nights for a conference. Great bed, quiet A/C, excellent staff. Breakfast was average self serve: pleasant space, but needs better grade of coffee, jams. Three hot chaffers to pick from; actually hot.

    « Great place to stay in Longview/Kelso on a business trip »

    Overall stay was great. They made a few recommendations for our meals out that were very great. They have wake up calls, pool, work out room and very quiet rooms to stay in. Thank you, will stay here again

    « Clean and comfortable »

    This hotel is a little older but well kept up. Checking in and out was fast and easy. The room had a mini-fridge and microwave, and good wifi. Bed and pillows were comfortable. This is wood frame construction so can be a little noisy as people move about on the 2nd floor. Location is a little inconvenient for the highway and restaurants. Local neighborhood behind the hotel seems a little sketchy.

    « Business stay »

    People friendly, room clean, breakfast good. Room bt staircase noisy, but remodel planned which should cure this. Have stayed here in the past, rooms and people seem to be much improved. Try not to get poolside room as these are noisier.

    « The Aladdin Inn in Kelso,WA »

    When ever we stay in the Longview Kelso area we always stay at this Best Western. The staff is very friendly, courteous, helpful and make you feel like part of their family. It's a very homey feeling you get when staying here. The area is clean and comfortable. I will be returning again soon.

    « Comfortable Bed »

    The bed was comfortable, the room was big, the furnishings were new. However, you could tell that the building was not new and built with lower quality materials. It was fine, and I slept well. I will stay again.

    « Dated, but clean »

    My daughter had a volleyball tournament in Kelso and we were just looking for a decent place to stay at a reasonable price. That's what we got at the Kelso BW. We were greeted by very friendly staff and without asking were upgraded to a larger room with a kitchenette. Unfortunately, we were in town long enough to take advantage of the kitchen. Room was spacious and clean, but pretty dated in appearance. Bed was comfortable and room had a flat screen TV. Free Internet had a good strong signal, which I have found is not common in most hotels. Pool was nice, but no hot tub. Free breakfast buffet was pretty much the standard breakfast with sausage, scrambled eggs, waffle, cereal, coffee and juice. Seating in the dining area was pretty limited. All in all, good hotel at a good price.

    « Good value »

    Nice basic hotel. A little on the older side but it was still a good value. We would stay there again. The breakfast was fantastic. Staff was really nice. The wifi worked very well. The beds were comfortable.

    « Awesome service every time!! »

    They have the best hospitality around every time I've been there. Owner, management and staff are all very polite and professional. I can guarantee you a pleasant visit at this Best Western. Keep up the great work guys :)

    « Great hotel »

    If you're staying in the kelso/longview area, this is the place to stay. The staff is friendly and the hotel is well maintained. I have stayed in the red lion hotel in the area, but after 1 stay there, it will be the Best Western Aladdin for me from now on.

    « Kelso Aladdin Inn »

    Great place to stay, convenient but far enough from I5 to be quieter, very clean and comfortable. Fun to walk across the river bridge and into town. Good breakfast at hotel, great coffee shop nearby or walk into town.

    « Not a great place to stay »

    We booked in advance and traveling having stayed at best western hotels before , but this place I'm going to be nice and not say it needs to be torn down. I had hard time finding parking as the place next door used a lot of the space and stayed up most of the night the floor was squeeky, it's old style ,kept tidy but carpets were dirty and I did take a shower there the vanity is out in the room ,I'm sorry but not again

    « Nice spacious room, but scary houses behind the hotel.. »

    We stayed in the hotel one night during a pacific northwest vacation. The staff was friendly, and the room, although older, was quite spacious. We rented one of the rooms with a kitchen suite in it on the 1st floor. Bed was also comfy. The only drawback to this hotel, is the area behind the hotel. There are abandoned houses with unauthorized people obviously living in them. The hotel does have a security service that appears to drive through the parking lot hourly to keep check on things though, which was nice. I think I would select a second floor room if we stayed here again though, and probably not walk around in the back parking lot after dark.

    « Welcome refuge after long day on the road »

    Overnight on way home, glad to find comfortable and warm place to rest. A restaurant across the parking lot meant no more driving. Room was clean and spacious with good wi fi connection. Early breakfast bar was fresh and ready at 6:00 a.m. Without GPS would have been hard to find as it is located some blocks off the I5.

    « OK stopover »

    An ok stop over - fast friendly service, oddly nasty smelling hallway but clean and comfy room. Heating in 1st room wasn't working (and was old-style and noisy) so was moved to another room with an updated heating system - much better! Small fridge and microwave in the room, and a few restaurant options in the area (one adjacent to the property but I didn't try it). It was ok, but I wouldn't make a point of returning. Something just off the Interstate would be faster, easier, and just as good.

    « Best Western Aladdin »

    Had a nice stay. Everyone was very friendly. This hotel is pet friendly and we go a ground floor room which helped when walking the dogs. We would stay here again without hesitation. Only issue is the staff was unable to recommend a good place for breakfast locally that had a cocktail lounge and we could watch a football game in. Be more up on local fair to recommend to patrons

    « Good choice at a good price »

    Looking for a last minute place to stay after car problems changed our plans, we found this hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the rooms were comfortable. You do need to request blankets as only one is on the bed. Heater worked fine, we just prefer to put it at a lower setting at night and adjust with blankets. Sink and blow dryer are outside of bathroom, which is nice. Blow dryer is on wall between 2 mirrors, so would be easy for 2 or more people to get ready at the same time. Only problem with room was bathtub drain was slow. Otherwise, very clean. We didn't use the indoor pool, but it looked sparkling clean and inviting. Breakfast was good with fluffy eggs (not the weird egg disks that some hotels serve), country potatoes (chunks, not shredded) and sausage. Waffle maker makes 4 small waffles, which is much easier to handle, especially if you have little kids, than one ginormous one that covers the plate. Lots of selection with cereal, yogurt, and hot oatmeal. Very reasonable price for a Best Western, and we would definitely stay again if we were in the area. Location is good, away from freeway and about a mile from several restaurants and the mall.

    « Good enough! »

    This is an older property and as such it was not bad...the staff were very considerate and overall the place was clean. We were just passing through on our way south and so we tend to look for Best Western properties when in unfamiliar locations.

    « Met Our Needs »

    Came to watch granddaughter play in LCC basketball tournament. Aladdin offered a special price and accepted pets, so we did not have to kennel them; consequently, a good value for us. Without special price, I might have kept looking. Good location. Interior "worn" but clean. Single queen room small or cozy depending upon your viewpoint. Very friendly and helpful staff (reason for very good rating; otherwise, average).

    « Great spot to stay in Kelso WA »

    While a bit off the I5 the Kelso Best Western is a great place to stay. Clean and quiet (ask for a room at the back). The staff are friendly helpful and courteous. Unbidden we were offered a free upgrade. Much appreciated. The usual BW complimentary breakfast is served in a clean well organised breakfast room with all the usual items; scrambled eggs, sausage, hash browns, cereals, bread, muffins buns etc choice of juices, milk, coffee and so on. Priced right.

    « Musky Smell »

    The room was adequate for a one night stay since we were traveling on the next morning. The first room we were assigned had a very strong cigarette smell. When I reported this to the desk clerk she moved us to another room which was OK. The motel is old and has a musky smell about it. After you have been in there awhile you don't notice the smell that much. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast had several options. I think it is overprice for what you receive.

    « Always Good »

    I've probably stayed here close to a dozen times. It's easily the best value in the Kelso/Longview area. It's not the most trendy or up to date decor. But, It's very well maintained, well run, clean and comfortable. Parking is a bit limited and their is no elevator (Ask for first floor if that matters, it's NOT noisey). The only restaurant that's really close is a Chinese place that I have not tried (not my thing). There are plenty of restaurants within a few blocks to a mile or so.

    « Halloween Town »

    This Best Western was ideally located for restaurants in Kelso WA and also for our medium sized group that was attending and performing at Halloween Town in St Helens OR. This Best Western says it is just the normal type, but we felt like we were in a Best Western PLUS. We had a little kitchenette with microwave, refrigerator, and kitchen sink. The Queen beds were very comfortable with good pillows. Only issue was bathroom fan did not pull out the steam from vanity area quickly enough (after shower).

    « Rooms smell bad & broken equipment. »

    I had to change room because first room smelled bad. Second room was better, but still smelled bad. Hallways smelled bad also. Toilette was broken and wobbled when sat on! Bathroom fan was broken and extremely loud. Phone didn't work! I cancelled my reservation for the second night & went to the Red Lion instead.

    « Away from Interstate »

    Nice clean motel in Kelso. Breakfast was good. Room was priced fairly. Quiet place and the room was really clean and neat. Nice place to stay. Kind of hard to find as it is about 2 miles from the interstate hiway. If you are going to Mt. Saint Helens, good place to stop for the night.

    « Good overall quality »

    We came for a wedding (my nephew's) and this suited us well. The room was clean and well-furnished, the breakfasts were tasty and wholesome, and it was near a number of businesses. The bathroom plug and the TV setup were both a bit confusing, and I couldn't get the internet in the room to work. (The computers off the lobby did, however, so all was not lost for my internet addiction, LOL!) Did have trouble finding it, too. Overall, tho, I found it an enjoyable experience, and would recomment it to others.

    « Basic Lodging »

    We were visiting friends in Kelso and there was not much of a choice because of weekend festivals. This was a good basic hotel at a fair price. Nothing fancy but the staff was nice and the rooms were clean.

    « Disappointed! »

    Wouldn't stay at this particular Best Western again should we return to WA state. The young woman who prepared breakfast was fantastic and did a wonderful job. Hats off to her! Staff at front desk were not that helpful when trying to bring in several pieces of luggage on one of their carriers. . . .holding door open for us, etc.

    « Best Western »

    Nice room, good breakfast, fantastic front desk person at check in. The room was clean and comfortable. Quiet and dog friendly Not much area for dog to do it's business but hotel is located in a quiet neighborhood. where you can walk your dog.

    « Poor location, small old-fashioned rooms »

    Located a long way from the freeway in a seedy area. Only one handicapped parking space, at the front, for the entire hotel. No restaurants of note nearby. Our room was small, old fashioned,but clean.WiFi was OK. TV, fridge, but no freezer in fridge. Bathroom was tiny, with old-fashioned small toilet, with loose toilet seat. Non-slip strips in tub were peeling off. Breakfast was good, with good service, and the room was clean. There was nobody at the front desk when we tried to check out the next day and other staff had to hunt the receptionist down.
