Pet friendly, $15 surcharge. Room was small but clean. Beds were comfortable but pillows were awful, foam chunk filled things. Left before the breakfast opened. Did not realize front door is locked from about midnight (don't remember exactly) until 6 am. Since we left at five, we didn't get a receipt. I called as we continued our travels and they...

This hotel is conveniently located off I-95 and is pet friendly, so we thought it perfect for our stay on the way up North from Florida. Weather delayed our arrival and our check-in was around midnight. We were given a smoking room instead of the booked non-smoking, and at that time I was told nothing else was available. We had...

Stopped here because I have a Best Western rewards card and the location is handy to I95. First impression was good, the staff were welcoming and friendly, and the room was clean and tidy. Sadly, after settlng in I realized the truck traffic on the Atlantic St. was non stop and was actually disturbing during sleep. As well the toilet...

WE stopped while traveling on 95. It is easy access on and off. There are a lot of restaurants near by. Our room was comfortable and clean good size room. Front desk people were friendly and helpful. Good breakfast. I would stay again.

Although the hotel was somewhat higher in price than surrounding properties it was worth the extra dollars to get a truly great experience of cleanliness and super staff. The person handling the breakfast bar was especially good and very courteous. The location was very good and very convenient to other services.

I was so tired. Had been driving for hours... all the lamp shades were very dirty.. the carpet needs redone. Sketchy area. Had a few places around to eat. Bathroom could have been redone. But it'll do for tonight.

cleaner room, and the musky smell, remove stains off walls. The Gym was disgusting!!!!(filthy mirrors, stink, no air flow, extremely dirty mirrors, and pumpkin seeds spit all over the mirror and floor, cups everywhere. Just unbelievable.

After staying in a BW in Lumberton NC (also a 2 diamond) that was wonderful, this was a letdown. The rooms were shabby and in dire need of refurbishing and it was $20 more! The king bed sagged in the middle, which did not lend itself to a decent night's sleep. The check-in clerk sauntered over to the counter from...

Not a bad place for the night. However, the room was dark and carpet felt damp. The light over the sink was broken. Breakfast was good for a hotel breakfast. Easy access off I95. Shoney's across the street.

Enjoyed our stay. Staff was great. We travel up and down the East coast twice a year and we are planning a trip to California and Hawaii. We do like to stay in Best Western hotels because we know they have a good value and are dependable. For the most part, they are clean and updated.
