    « About what you'd expect in a very small town »

    Other than signage and branding changes on the outside of the hotel, this was an average hotel at best...the property is a bit dated; rooms were OK but didn't feel fresh or sparkling clean; bathroom was really small; you could hear every conversation outside in the hallway.

    « Lazy Owners »

    You know, you OWN the hotel, you're sitting on the lobby couch with your wife. When a guest comes in, and waits at the front desk because the front desk clerk is on her break, check the guest in YOURSELVES. Don't go off searching for the clerk while your guest is waiting to be checked in, and to get a shower after a long drive.

    « Nice surprise »

    We did not want to pay high prices for a room in Indy, found this gem just 25 miles from Indy, and a bunch of money cheaper. Hotel has been completely remodeled, we thought it was new. Our room was clean , well appointed and the bed was very comfy. The room was quiet and the shower head was actually higher than 5 foot . Will stay here again .

    « Nice place to stay if you're in the area »

    I had a reservation with a very good rate and arrived late, around 10:00PM. The check-in went smoothly and the staff were very nice. They upgraded my room without asking. The breakfast was better than normally found at value-oriented hotels, with both hot and cold selections. The coffee is excellent and available 24/7. The room was large, but the plumbing needs some attention. For example, the bathroom sink drained very slowly. The heat pump was noisy. The bed was comfortable, but I did not like the pillows. The carpet was new and the room was clean. Overall, the room was very acceptable. They allowed me late check-out without an extra charge.

    « The People are Great, the Facility...not so much »

    How in the world did a multi-story hotel skip out on the ADA requirement for an elevator?!? I was under the impression that if a public building had been constructed or undergone a major renovation since the 1970's then it needed an elevator. Well, there certainly is not one here! The staff was great; they were encouraging and compassionate, but the facility itself, especially that missing elevator, left much to be desired! Bummer.

    « Great service, great room! »

    Couldn't be happier with the hotel staff and the rooms! I'd recommend here to anyone. It's a small building, but the rooms are plenty big. Again, the staff is phenomenal and make a huge difference in the quality of the stay

    « Nice, clean, and friendly! »

    The Best Western, in Martinsville, is very nice. The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean. Our room was nicely decorated and included fridge and micro. Beds were a bit too firm for our comfort. There were many choices at breakfast to meet our needs. This was the perfect location for us to stop during the national marching band competition at Lucas Oil Stadium.

    « Pleasant and convenient »

    This is a pleasant and convenient place to stay when we come to Martinsville to visit family. It is located near both a Walgreens and a Krogers --- easy to buy snacks and wine to enjoy in our room. The staff is friendly and accommodating.

    « Not The Greatest Plave »

    We stayed here because hotels in Bloomington were sold out. A lot of road construction going from here to the IU making traffic really bad. This property is very outdated. It's a 2 story building with no elevator. Hallways are dirty. Room was just ok, nothing great at all. I would not stay here again.

    « Fall Colors Motorcycle Ride »

    Great hotel in a convenient location. Very quiet room, comfortable bed and friendly staff. There were 20 of us in a motorcycle group there to see fall colors in nearby parks. We were well received. Will be back again!

    « I felt like a character in the TV show Oz »

    Last minute they cancelled my reservations after spending months at the hotel. My family needed to find a place to stay in a matter of hours. I was supposed to check in at 3 p.m. 1 p.m. cancelled. The hotel smelled of black mold. The staff was rude and felt like you owed them to stay there like it was some sort of privilege to spend my hard earned money on the shanty of an establishment. The house keeping stayed there and lived up stairs. They would give my children dirty looks and did not clean if you did not have the wrong perfect but then complained if the bags of trash were full. The bathtub was painted and paint was peeling off. I would not recommend this place to my enemies let alone my friends. Avoid!!!

    « All good except breakfast TV »

    The TV in the breakfast room was showing CNN and the only seat available was directly in front of it. There is nothing that ruins my appetite more than this garbage TV. Most of the 8 motels we stayed in in the last 9 days had the weather channel on. That may be bland but at least it is informational and not propaganda.

    « Clean, Quiet, Comfortable »

    This hotel was good value and was very clean, quiet and comfortable. We were happy with our experience both with staff and the facility. The breakfast options provided met our tastes and the location was convenient.

    « Clean »

    Both room and bathroom were very clean. Bed was comfortable including pillows. Great Internet and flat screen TV. OK breakfast but crowded, and as I travel a lot, thought just a bit over-priced, but great place to stay. Stayed here as my son was at Riley and there were no available room in Indy. Would recommend.

    « Tired »

    Mattress was way too soft and toilet rocked. Motion detector was in entry so when a person headed to the bathroom the person still sleeping was blasted with the entry light. The walls in the shower were water damaged.

    « Buckeye Football »

    Only a 20 minute drive to Indiana University. Staff was very friendly, always asking if they can help in any way. Room was clean, nice bathroom and shower. We were on the 1st floor, did not have an elevator to 2nd floor.

    « What a great experience! »

    We had a great experience. The only thing I would change would be the way our AARP cards work. We were denied a discount, due to it being pre-paid. We plan on calling the hotel directly to provide our AARP card number.

    « OK hotel, a bit dated though »

    The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast area is a bit compact, waiting for someone to finish making their coffee is normal. The decor of the hotel is showing its age, however it is clean. If I was in Martinsville again, I would consider this hotel. It is a reasonable hotel.

    « Good stay »

    Very nice facility. Clean, quiet and comfortable. Professional staff. Breakfast area is small but breakfast was above average. I would recommend this BWI to everyone who needs an overnight stay in this area. I will definitely stay here again. Great sleeping in comfortable bed and extremely quiet.

    « Surprised quality! »

    The mattress was excellent! Very comfortable, and will stay again! Front desk staff were kind. Room was clean, and tv easy to navigate. Air conditioner worked well and room stayed cool. Overall a surprisingly positive experience. Will stay here again when I have another event in the area.

    « BW »

    Staff was friendly and courteous. Room was great - very comfortable bed. The only negative I would have is the water is too soft, making it hard to rinse shampoo out of hair and soap off skin. This is a minor negative.

    « Shelley was AWESOME »

    We had to book at the BW Martinsville, IN at the last minute. We were going to IUBloomington for our son's graduation. The hotel we had booked for the night was a disaster. We found BW on We arrived a bit frazzled. Shelley welcomed us with a big smile and cookies! She was very knowledgeable about the area, etc. Great experience.

    « Great stop »

    Hotels in Bloomington, Indiana, were full due to a big concert. We found this hotel to be a pleasant surprise. We did not expect much, but we found it nicer than expected. Overall we had no complaints. We would recommend this hotel.

    « Not the "Best" Western »

    Seemed old. Room doors had big dents in them. Beds were springy and not very firm. Shower would get cold and you had to shut it off and turn it back on to warm it up. The only treadmil was broken. Staff were nice and courteous

    « Renovation success »

    Company booked hotel and I was very skeptical. Read reviews and decided to explore. Hotel in the middle of renovation and was impressed. No elevator but staff went out of the way to help with luggage. Best Western has come a long way. Room very comfortable, clean and efficient. Third night this year and I applaud the new Best Western. Bravo to owner/management. I stay 200+ nights a year in 130 mid range hotels. The purpose of the reviews are mostly for the patrons. Hopefully this will allow owners/management to improve their hotel and staff. Nights stayed- Will I stay again: Yes No Possibly

    « Our trip was one night stay and motel very clean n rooms very nice n new and staff friendly and pet friendly!Would recom »

    And nice to be pet friendly because my Yorkie is like my kid and always goes with us everytime we go out of town!The room was nice and new and lived the carpet colors and the beds are new and very comfortable.

    « One Night Stand »

    Hotel served the purpose of our stay. A little over priced from previous stays at other Best Western's. Breakfast was average. Room was nice and the staff was very polite and helpful. Enjoy staying at Best Western's .

    « A great place to stay if your in the neighborhood »

    Right off highway 37. Check in was a breeze, very friendly, helpful staff. Room was very clean and modern. Breakfast was decent, with some hot items. Plenty of close eating places. A nice convenient place to stay if going to Brown county.

    « Absolutely Accommidating!!! »

    I couldnt be happier!! Very accomdiating!!! I needed a place to sleep and was checking in way before the normal check in time! They were very understanding of my situation and were more than happy to help!!! Will stay here from now on!!!

    « Pleasant Out of the Way Stay »

    Just off the main highway, this older Best Western is a tiny 2-story hotel with modern conveniences. Weight room looked inviting. Nice breakfast area in the front lobby that serves free hot food from 6am-10am. Very friendly staff. Disabled parking and ramp into hotel for those needing wheelchair accessibility. I couldn't get the WI-FI to work although they do offer it. Was too tired to go to the front desk to work out the problem. Sleep looked more inviting. Beds were comfortable but overstuffed with blankets or towels under the bottom sheet to give the mattress a more comfortable feel but I found it also made the bed overly hot and had to crank up the a/c for a cooler night's sleep. Quiet. Easy walk to a Pizza Hut, Subway and Walgreen's. Short distance from Oliver Winery.

    « Pleasant Stay »

    Smallish hotel, modernized interior. Walking distance to Pizza Hut, Subway and a Walgreens. Easy on/easy off highway. Pleasant, accommodating staff. Good hot breakfast offerings (try the waffles!). Quiet area. Impressed by weight room but didn't get a chance to use it. Clean, well kept. Bed was very padded with extra sheets or toweling for a more comfortable sleep but I found it too hot and had to crank up the a/c to counter.

    « GREAT STAY »

    Staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are nice and clean. The hotel is in close proximity to shopping & restaurants. Price is high ($117) for the location, but the stay was fabulous! Check out was 11:30 which gave us more time for breakfast and showers before leaving.

    « kids drop off »

    it was a great place to stay, price was higher then last year, but it was better then going to Bloomington, breakfast was good it was free, our room was on the 2nd floor,a elevator would be a nice addition to the motel,would make it it easy on the older folks

    « Good hotel in very small town »

    Couldn't get in to the Holiday Inn Express, so nervously booked a king too here. Was told I had a suite, but that turned out to be a king room with a very tacky hot tub with mirrors in the bedroom. Although I was informed the hotel was non-smoking, the room reeked of cigarette smoke. I requested another room with a king bed, but they were all booked, so I took a room with two double beds. Hotel and rooms were updated and clean. Room had fridge and microwave in it as well as coffee maker. I did find a dirty wash cloth from a prior guest hanging from the shower rod, which was gross. Didn't eat at breakfast time but the coffee was pretty terrible. Bed was ok, not terribly comfy or uncomfy and bed linen was pretty thin.

    « Nice room for the night »

    Overall this was a nice place to stay. Friendly staff. Free hot breakfast. Previous stay a few months ago was better, but this experience was OK too. Hotel is close to main HWY through town, and has a few places to eat nearby.

    « If you are stuck! »

    I would only stay here if I was stuck for a place. This hotel caters to work men in the area. The parking lot is full of work trucks and transport trucks. Poorly lit and the decor is from the 80s. Breakfast is limited.

    « Would recommend »

    The hostess was very pleasant and suggested area events after asking about our area. The room was very clean and in order. They really have maintained this older hotel very well it's a good deal for the price to stay, I would gladly stay again.

    « Excellent service »

    This hotel was a super value! I stayed for business and was very pleased. The breakfast buffet had a great variety and was tasty. The staff was helpful and friendly. Forgot my toothbrush and they promptly provided it. I would definitely stay again.

    « Third time and out »

    Each time I have come to Indiana to visit with friends and family I have stayed at this hotel and each time the cleanliness has gone down. Doubt I will stay here again. Check in person this time was not friendly ..check out person was very nice.

    « On our way to Richmond Virginia »

    Before traveling to Richmond, Virginia, we needed to make a stop at Bloomington, In. Driving for hours we decided to look for a hotel in Martinsville, In. I called Best Western. The desk clerk sounded friendly, so I said we will be there in a few. In no time did Mr. Dave had our room ready. What a nice and friendly gentleman he was. We slept like there was no tomorrow. And breakfast was fantastic! We will be back!

    « Not a good value for the money »

    We saw some ants in the room.There was no gravy for the biscuts for breakfast.Was were given a room designed for handicapped individuals.I was not handicapped.Shower head was to low for normal height adults.Bed was good and room was clean except for seeing some ants. .

    « Great value for the price I paid »

    The hotel is definitely a little older but I paid $59 a night mon thru thurs for that price I thought it was a great choice. Rooms were nice size had a good size fridge, microwave and coffee maker I loved that it had a lot of tables and chair so to eat you weren't sitting in ur bed. The staff was super friendly, needed some directions and they were more than happy to help. Breakfast was average for a free breakfast waffles, make ur own egg sandwich cereal toast. Usual suspects if your in the area definitely give them a try!

    « Overpriced for what you get »

    Stayed there over Mom's weekend for IU student - charged $151 (with tax), so they jacked up the price to take advantage of parents seeing their kids in school. When you walk in, there's a musty smell (since pets allowed) - if you're allergic to pet dander - don't stay here. Receptionist said they limit guests with pets to first floor but that guests "sneak in" pets to 2nd floor too. Although only 2 floors there is no elevator (not sure how they get away with ADA requirements) - so you're carrying your luggage up about 15+ steps. Right on State road 37 so some noise. Breakfast included although I didn't take advantage of it.

    « great place »

    I've stayed here on three different occasions in the past three years. I have never had a complaint. They have always been happy to allow early check-in upon arrival if available. The staff has always been very friendly and caring. The only choice for me in Martinsville.

    « Great value and comfortable stay! »

    Spent 2 nights here in a nice, clean, comfortable room. Good hot free breakfast in the morning with their signature waffle maker! Staff was very nice and the fitness room is well equipped with a few cardio machines and a nice weight machine. Recommended if you are in the area. Pizza Hut and Mexican Restaurant in a short walking distance.

    « Good value for price paid »

    We reserved 3 rooms for 3 nights and got the 3 night discount. And for the price paid the value was good. Nice looking workout room. Rooms appeared clean. Everything was in working order. Basics were provided for breakfast. Coffee and juices available 24 hours which was nice

    « Great value »

    Stayed on New Years Eve. Room was clean and well appointed. Large fridge and microwave. Did not eat breakfast, but I was not feeling well and office staff very nice in granting me late check out. Only issues: sink was slow draining and beds very high. If traveling with elderly, may want to ask for a stool.

    « Extremely clean and comfortable »

    Stayed for 3 nights and was very impressed with the customer service, housekeeping and the cleanliness of the hotel. It was quiet, comfortable and relaxing - plus a great price compared to the other hotels in the area. Thank you Shelly, Joy, Tilisa and the wonderful housekeeping staff.

    « Avg. stay »

    Initially staff was friendly, until just before time to check out...we were severely rushed to exit! Other than that, it was a good stay and experience. Items on the Breakfast Bar was okay but the sausage and eggs were horrible at best! Better quality food could be served given the price of the hotel stay.

    « Restful night at an excellent price »

    great beds...nice employes, convienent, great price. The location is near stores, service stations and resturants. Easy access to roads going south or north. Small town...felt safe coming and going at night the area is well lit and that is important if you are a woman traveling alone.

    « Comfortable room. Helpful staff! »

    Comfortable room with microwave and refrigerator. Bed was comfortable. Plenty of work space and tables for setting suitcases and things. Everyone working here was very helpful. Our one key did not work and after seeing this an employee showed up at the door with 2 new ones.

    « One of the cleanest hotels that I have ever stayed in... »

    This is one of the cleanest hotels that I have ever stayed in. The bed was a little hard. The premises are kept very nice. The staff was very nice--especially Denise. The breakfast could have been a little better.

    « Very Average »

    A little run down and door was very beat up. Needed to be super vigilant to make sure the door actually closed, latched, and not real secure. No chain. Last room near exit....very loud in the morning because it was across the hall from the linen/staff room. Also no cover on the light fixture next to the shower.

    « Fantastic Hotel! Great management, very clean »

    I honestly did not know what to expect coming from my suburban town outside of New York City to a chain hotel in a small town in Indiana. Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised. The management here is incredible, so accommodating, friendly, and hard-working. Although, it's not the fanciest hotel in the world (which is why only awarding it four stars), the staff keeps the hotel extremely clean....perhaps the cleanest place in Martinsville? What I personally love the most about this place is the family vibe. This place only seems to have a few employees, who all seem to get a long very well, and the customers get the feeling that you're coming into someone's home and there is a family eagerly waiting to serve you.

    « Martinsville »

    Brand New beds were the MOST comfortable beds I have slept in at a hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast bar was a very good selection, fresh and delicious. With Bloomington room rates so high during football season, its worth the drive from Martinsville.

    « Kudos to the staff behind the front desk, makes this motel special.... »

    After a long day of driving the last thing you want is a hassle....I believe the girls name was Denise and she's a "gem". My room was very comfortable and clean. The bed was sooo comfy. My room also had everything I needed microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker and flat screen TV. I was given a late check out with no questions asked. Breakfast was sufficient and I was surprised to see Denise back to handle that the next morning as well. Give that girl a raise!!!! The business center was nice and supplied. There are fast food places and restaurants within walking distance and also shopping. I will be back to this Best Western when in the Martinsville, IN area again. Keep up the good work!!!!

    « Why BW? Location, Clean + Price »

    I have been coming to this town for the past 5 years and for the price and the amenities this is the hotel that I prefer. Typical continental hotel breakfast fare, clean with modern decor in the rooms. The mattress was perfect, firm and not saggy. So if someone complains they are looking for 5-star hotel at 2-star prices, so good luck on that one.

    « No elevator »

    If I had known there was no elevator in this hotel I would not have booked it. For a lot of people that would not be a big deal but we had our kids with us and a lot of luggage. After a full day of driving, this was an exhausting way to end the day. On a positive note, the room was clean and a nice size.

    « My business stay »

    I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. People and staff are very friendly. Hotel is close to my business location and also close to a variety of restaurants. I would recommend this hotel to any individual that is looking for lodging in this area.

    « Extremely Friendly and Helpful Staff »

    While on our way to the Taylor Swift concert, we realized we had forgotten our tickets at home. We stopped here in hopes they would allow us to use their business center to reprint our tickets. Fortunately, they did! Denise at the front desk was extremely friendly and helpful! She saved us a huge amount of hassle and made our experience an even more enjoyable one! Thanks Denise!!

    « Extremely Satisfied with overall experience »

    Single mom traveling with teenager. Felt very safe in the area. We arrived late at night and parking lot was well lit. We stayed on weekend but, building was quiet and we could not hear exterior noise from room. Lobby and rooms were clean. Staff was professional and friendly. Breakfast adequate. Free WiFi worked great for the teenager:) Great location (15-20) minute drive to Indiana University. Literally right off St Rt. 37. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

    « If you don't need to be in Martinsville stay elsewhere »

    We needed to be in this area and the options were limited. We were slightly encouraged by the reviews. Room was spacious but musty. Shower was cold. Breakfast looked terrible even for a free breakfast - we passed. If you are reading this review you are not looking for someplace upscale anyway but this is not midscale either.

    « Joy is a joy! »

    We decided to find a hotel for the night after our backpacking trip, and Best Western was the best choice. I gave them a call to book, and Joy took great care of us. She made the whole check-in process quick and painless (I think she could tell we were exhausted!) and was extremely friendly.

    « Responsive Hotel Mgt »

    Excellent hotel, but rated very good due to unfortunate experience with another hotel guest and a night auditor charging error. In both cases the hotel management was very responsive and came up with excellent solutions. The hotel is close to Bloomington & Indiana University and an easy drive to the Indy airport. A wonderful Mexican on town square recommend by hotel staff.
