After traveling for 10 hours and arriving to the hotel, we find out that we did not have a reservation for the correct date and was told there was nothing they (the check in staff) could do we would have to call the main office of Best Western, but they did give us a room on the 2nd floor (no...

We made last minute arrangements to stay there as we didn't know how far we would get. There is a restaurant right next door so very handy for dinner and a glass of wine. The room was small but clean, however the queen bed was not a queen. It was a full bed so we had to ask for extra...

Pet rooms do not all smell the best, but this one won the prize. The interior hallway also smelled strongly of booze. It was like someone dumped out a bottle of cheap whiskey outside the room door. The bathroom smelled of urine. It was overall very unpleasant. The door to the outside also did not close easily, you had to...

Displace pleasantly surprised my wife and I on our travels. The room was clean and while it is an older Motel everything was fine. We had a king size bed and the room was perfect for our one-night stay. You can't beat the price, $89.90 including taxes. Maybe the best breakfast we have ever had at a motel. Waffles eggs...

We had reservations from the Best Western 800 number. When we arrived a little after 6 pm, the Front Desk girl told us she could not give us a room at the reservation price and would not even look up the reservation in the computer. Of course, the price she could give us a room at was about $15 higher....

This hotel was not up to Best Western standards. It more like one of those independent hotels for $40. The sad part is, I paid almost $100. The bathroom had a urine odor and the tub drain was clogged and ran very slowly. It was really late when we checked in and I didn't want to hassle with a room...

We made a reservation to stay here for one night in May, 2016 with our two pets in a handicapped accessible room. Gave a credit card to hold it. Arrived and tried to check in. They told us WE had CANCELED the reservation and had no rooms available. Totally untrue. We left in disbelief and hoped another motel in Effingham...

Old property with rooms that open to the outside. We walked into our room and it smelled musty and dirty. There were flies all over, a smashed spider on a wall, and the floors felt damp leading to us wearing shoes the entire time. Bathroom is small but the more updated part of the room. Based on my experience, I...

I stayed here with my boyfriend near the end of July. I hate writing bad reviews but I can not let this bad experience go unnoticed. First of all one of the young girls working at the main desk should not be working anywhere in customer service. Someone asks "how are you?" the correct response would be to ask the...

We figured that the best place to stay would half way between Texas and Ohio. This happened to be at the Best Western Raintree Inn in Effingham, IL. We've stayed at the this hotel before and was very happy with this hotel.
