I had a great stay at the Best Western. Dustin and other staff were very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and plenty spacious. The location is a little off the downtown area, but is fairly easy to get to via car or bicycle via river trail. There are a couple brewery's and good food within walking distance.

Very friendly staff. The desk clerk when we arrived was very kind and understanding. We had to book this hotel the night before our stay. He saw that we had kids and even though there were no rooms left on the first floor, he put us in a room near the stairs and in the center so we didn't have...

Comfortable beds. Really great swimming pool and hot tub. Friendly, helpful staff. Fresh cookies at the office. Clean, comfortable rooms. And the best breakfast. Waffles, eggs, bacon, and green chile sauce. Was pleasantly surprised. The staff took good care of us during our stay. The kids had a blast at the pool. Would definitely stay here again!
