I’ve read a lot of the complaints about best western hotels. About the rooms not clean the way they treat our vets and all the rude employees. But they treat there employees wrong too. My wife got fired from there because she talked to the guest basically. Her job at the front desk is to talk to the guest and show hospitality. I hope the CEO reads this and contacts me. Mr. CEO you might want to review your hotel owners . Columbia SC

Best Western Oceanfront Virginia Beach-HORRID- excuse for a hotel. The manager Joe Dabiero was the worst excuse for a manager. He spoke to me as if I were a dog and spoke over me as if customer service did not exist and was completely arguementive. I don’t believe I got in a full sentence. He could care less about my complaints. He practically accused me of lying. I want to know who holds these people accountable? I asked to speak with a person above him and he said there was no one else? I assure you I am not an idiot. Well educated to be honest. To spoken to so horribly was despicable and insulting. The Office Manager, Tim Masterson, another class act. While privately talking to him in his office because I thought talking about bedbugs at the front desk was tasteless. He looked at and through me with no regard to my complaints. Perhaps it’s because I’m a woman. Well rest assure, Best Western will never get my business or family’s business and company’s business again. Poor excuse for a company thanks to your representation Joe Dabiero and Tim Masterson. If anyone happens to really look at this posting, I’d like someone to contact me. Thank you.

Just saw the story about the vet not being able get a room because he had a service dog. Shame- Shame-= Shame- I would never stay a Best Hotel if it was the last on earth. Do your people not understand the laws. What he had to do to get a room was a crying shame.


disgusted July 2, 2015 at 8:29 am

Let me tell you about the one on savannah highway in charleston, s.c.
The manager is a jerk. He assumes you want a particular room and doesn’t ask.
The manager sends you to a smoking smelling nasty room
The manager expects a handicapped senior to walk up stairs to the second floor and
there is no elevator.
The manager gives you the wrong directions. I went 3 hours out of my way.
Then he had the nerve to insult, offend me.
Then he assumed I knew where it was like I had been to charleston, s.c. before. Which this was entirely my first time.
Then he lied when I asked how do you get there from jacksonsville, fl He said the hotel was right off the interstate us 17 when you get off its at your front door. That’s a lie. Its at least 3 miles.

I don’t generally stay at best western They are generally not clean, managed right and they have many hygiene issues. I will never stay at a best wesrn ever again. This is it. I would definitely not stay here. Too nasty

I reserved a room at the Dumas Tx location and was beyond disappointed. When arriving at 1am and extremely tired I go inside after being bombed in the head by bugs from outside I go in and the desk agent tells me I have to pay an additional $22 as I didn’t put the total number I actually had on my reservation. Which I’ve never been charged before. Then she says I’m sorry it’s bug season. I go into the room to be greeted by a ton of bugs. I start killing them and this continues throughout the entire night. I call the desk and she tells me again its bug season there’s nothing I can do. .. like its deer season we have to kill our own. I asked for some kind of compensation. . Got nothing. So much for getting a room to sleep some had no sleep as I was up the entire time killing these damn bugs. I will never stay here or recommend best western in dumas again.


Peggy Arvin June 27, 2015 at 10:36 am

Very upsetting to call the Best Western in Cave city ,Ky. the night before my stay with family there. I had 2 rooms booked with a confirmation number and wanted to verify the rooms. I had made reservations 3 weeks before stay.The manager could not find my reservation and said no rooms were available. Offered to find rooms in the Motel 8 which he also owned. If I had wanted to stay there I would have booked there. Service not friendly or accomadating as to his mistake. I was fortunate to locate a competing motel in the same city for 2 rooms. I will always be very hesitant to book at Best Western in the future. Should have been corrected in a more professional manor. Not even an apology offered.

I had reservations for my son’s groomsmen at the Best Western in Cedar Park Texas on Whitestone Blvd. They only gave the groomsmen one room instead of the two I had reserved. The manager Mr. Patel hasn’t been very helpful in resolving this situation. I won’t be staying at another Best Western again.


Celise May 30, 2015 at 10:36 am

Did not deal with the situation correctly. “I don’t control the weather that’s not my problem” that one statement alone should have him fired. Never ever should a customer get yelled at I work in a customer service job and that would not fly! Fix your shit and get it together! Smh


Celise May 30, 2015 at 10:34 am

The manager and the lewisville location was beyond rude and the service and his attitude is horrible


Peggy Bitney May 28, 2015 at 6:05 pm

Unbelievable! An “event” weekend allows the best western greentree inn to double their rates! We accepted that but also expected that since it was an “event” weekend, it would be in tip top shape. NOT the case! We went to the pool to find it filthy. There was all kinds of stuff floating, cottonwood I can handle, dead bugs and garbage—-no! So, as I cleaning the pool, I started noticing, there were live bugs swimming all over in it! We will definitely not be staying here again! Best western, you should be ashamed!


Tom and Cheryl D May 20, 2015 at 11:09 pm

I’ve read all the comments from every bodies stay at various Best Western Hotels. I guess you can call It the good, the bad, and the ugly. This was our first time staying at a BW hotel we choose the BW Executive Inn in Memphis Tn. do to the proximity of the airport. When we arrived on Mon.4/27/2015 we were greeted by Chrissy a very pleasant person at the desk. While we were checking in we met the manager Belinda this is an individual that is on top of running her hotel. We had a small incident with the towels I contacted the front desk the problem was taking care of immediately and the front desk obviously contacted the Belinda who in turn called me that evening (she was out of town) to apologize about the problem. I’ve never seen a manager like Belinda that was hands on even from another state. They are in the process of updating the hotel. The breakfast was very good the eggs and sausage were hot had plenty of choices to make between bread , pastry, muffins juices, coffee tea, and it was very clean. The entire staff at this hotel were pleasant and caring. I read negative reviews about the security gate I thought it was a plus to be able to park in a secure parking lot. When I’m in Memphis again we definitely stay here again.

I reserved and had a hold of over $1600 for two rooms for 8 days at The Midwest City Oklahoma location. My mother’s room had cockroaches that I photographed for them. Plus, her phone did not work, more did either remote for the TV. When she asked for new sheets the manager Linda proceeded to tell us we could leave, and won’t be refunded our money for up to 30 days. This was after she was fully aware our homeowners insurance was covering the fees and that this area is high chance for increment weather. So, our family, and 4 months old baby will be leavings. Even the 7 dollar military discount can’t not make up for this trashy experience.

I should have know my experience with this Linda person would not be pleasant. As I left at 8 am this morning, I witnessed her arguing with 4 other guest about the laundry facilities ruining all of their clothing. I am suprised you all would allow such a terrible merchant to hold you name.


Tony May 8, 2015 at 12:45 am

My name is tony and I am a “guest” at the best western in Chilicothe OH. I walked this evening after making a reservation online …and paying in full, to be confronted, not welcomed by a dispicably rude woman named Laura. Upon entering the hotel she simply said “reservation” without ever picking her head up from what she was doing. She then said “ID and credit card” she swiped my card and I asked if it was for incidentals since I already paid, she replied ” no you have to pay for your room” I told her I paid online and she responded with “oh well talk to a manager” luckily for her there was no one on duty. I then tried to go to my room and after rounding the corner she simply yelled from the desk ” renovations, go outside and try the other door”. I have never been treated more poorly by an establishment I was paying for a service. I strongly suggest you separate yourself from this woman. I can guarantee she is solely responsible for me NEVER using a best western again and I will make sure to let everyone I know how horrible the service was.

My name is Bob Wharton and I am the media director for Showtime Baseball located in Battle Ground, Washington.
Our baseball organization travelled to Phoenix for a tournament on 1/15/15 and stayed until 1/19/15 at the Best Western Tolleson hotel. We arrived early with a large group of people, approximately 50-60, and within an hour and with the awesome assistance of the on-duty staff consisting of Lucy, Michelle, Irma, and Yasmin our entire ball club was checked in and ready for the day’s events. It was a bit stressfull with the quantity of people registering in all at once, but the great ladies helping us used the utmost professionalism in getting us squared …away.
They hit a home run!!!
The complimentary breakfasts were delicious and the buffet was constantly well-supplied with fresh food….keeping our players nourished and prepared every morning.


curtis franklin April 18, 2015 at 6:50 pm

I made a reservation thursday evening for a saturday night stay (4/18/2015) I attempted to check in at 7pm and was told that there were no rooms available at the time and I would have to come back around 8:30-9pm. Check in is at 3pm so this is unacceptable. I had dinner plans at 8pm which I can’t attend, due to not being able to change clothes. I am very upset with this hotel, what’s the problem with housekeeping


Sandi Brown April 12, 2015 at 10:20 am

Hi my name is Sandi Brown and I have a problem I need to tell you about. On April 9th my husband got very sick and we had to cancel our reservations with you hotel in Boise Idaho. We changed them to the 10th and on the 10th we changed them from Boise to Twin Falls Idaho which we stayed. I have to say that the breakfast they had there was far from what we usually get at your hotel so we won’t be staying there again. But that is not my real problem since my husband was sick he was unable to tell me what hotel he had made for us to stay originally on the 11th with was in Mesquite NV so I was unable to cancel that one. Upon finding a hotel last night and then checking our visa account is how we realized our mistake. I had no idea that you would keep all of our money with that mistake. I can see part of it but if your hotel was full and we were a no show you got your money for our room plus who ever ended up with our room. We will be thinking twice now before we stay at at Best Western again and for the most part best western is where we always stay when we travel. Thank you for listening to my problem and it would be nice if you could help out in some way. Sincerely, Sandi Brown


Nedra Zausch April 11, 2015 at 6:32 pm

My family stayed at the Best Western Raffels in Anaheim, California. We would not recommend this hotel to anyone. The parking is terrible and the room floor had a hole in it. It was room 316. We were very lucky not to fall through the floor. I notified the office for two days and they said they could not move me because they were booked. Also, they said the hotel could not fixed it because maintenance did not know how! No discount or other accommodation was offered to compensate me. I don’t mind paying for my hotel, as long as it’s safe!!


Casey Kaye April 6, 2015 at 7:36 pm

All of these bad experiences are a good advertisement for vacation rentals. These are reasonably priced homes and condos that people offer for rent to vacationers or corporate rentals. Try them out! Well priced, all the comforts of home, clean, attentive homeowners or property managers whose intent is that you have a nice place to stay with no nonsense. Try it! See craigslist in the area you want to travel to.


Kelly Dodson April 3, 2015 at 11:34 pm

The rooms are extremely clean, but it sounds like the maid takes her child to work with her, and in the early morning all we could hear was yelling and screaming. Also, there are no-smoking signs everywhere, yet I have seen several people smoking on the premises without reprimand, and the indoor hallway reaked of cigarrette smoke. The walls are paper thin; I can hear everyone around me. However, this review is due to an unfavorable incident I had with the Manager. First of all, this location has an inadequate driveway, with no room for two cars to pass eachother without potential incident. Secondly, as I was coming up the steep drive, a car was coming down rather quickly and did not appear to want to stop. Naturally, my only choice was to get out of it’s way as to: get out of the street and not get hit by the car coming down the drive. Upon entering the remaining parking lot (which also does not allow passing traffic) a car was backing out without paying attention to me being right there. I roll-stopped, they saw me, so I proceeded efficiently as to get out of their way and not block the driveway. I, at no time, was going an excessive speed. There were ZERO people in or around the drive, as there simply is not enough space to get all crazy if I wanted to anyway. I pulled into a parking space and was in my car for a few minutes gathering my items. Upon getting out I noticed there was a man in bike shorts waiting behind my vehicle (at a safe distance) who then proceeded to reprimand me for my driving in front of other hotel guests. Evidently, he had just gotten back from a bike ride and was not in identifiable apparel, so upon first glance it just looked like some strange man stalking me; which was very unnerving and immediately made me defensive. After he was finished scolding me, I didn’t really respond to him because I was livid and felt that the less I said was the best decision. So he says “we don’t have a problem here, do we?” And I said no. The other hotel guests were on the balcony laughing and making disparaging comments about me because of him. I continued on to my room, and when I looked back he was standing next to my car writing something down. I felt almost violated in a way, since it was dark out and I am a single female. When I got to my room I called the front desk and asked for a manager; the same man who spoke with me in the parking lot is who I received. He said he would embarrass me when the situation was endangering children. I remarked there were no kids around, and that there was a more professional and tactful way to address a situation. I also stated I was trying to get out of the way of other vehicles, but he didn’t want to hear it. I apologized for “speeding,” to be a decent human being and received no acceptance. He offered a forced apology because I “demanded one.” Unreal. I have paid good money to stay here and deserve a little bit of respect. I will be looking into changing my hotel because I do not feel comfortable here anymore after being called out in front of other guests. Totally unacceptable.


Tonya Robinson Peyton March 28, 2015 at 11:05 am

My husband and I check in to the Best Western in Wolfchase in Memphis Tennessee. The worst experience I have ever had. There was mildew smell in the room and blood stains on the carpet. Also, it look like mold was growing in the bathroom. I’m guessing that is where the mildrw smell is coming from. The management was very rude and not willing to even look in to the situation. There were stains on the wall from the air conditioning and it sounded like it was going to blow up. Never stay in a Best Western. Worst mistake you will ever make.


Mr and Mrs. Kevin Miles March 11, 2015 at 9:54 pm

My husband and I were on our way to Florida on February 22, 2015. Our truck died on the interstate approximately 10 miles from Florence KY. We were traveling from central Indiana. Our tow truck driver towed our truck to a Ford dealership in Florence, and then very kindly dropped us off at the Best Western Hotel. From the moment we arrived, we were treated with absolute kindness and graciousness from all, but particularly one man. His name is Jeff Snap. Although he did not work at the front desk, he went out of his way to help us. He gave us a ride in his own personal car to a restaurant on a cold, freezing winter night rather than having us walk. He also gave us a ride to the dealership upon our check out since the dealership was going to be extremely delayed in picking us up with their shuttle. This man took us in, gave what he had to give, and was the “hands and feet of Jesus” to us. I discovered that he had experienced a personal tragedy in his life just a short time ago. And, yet he was willing to reach out in absolute kindness to us in a time of desperation. If the world acted more like this man, and every hotel had somebody like him on staff, what a beautiful world it would be. Thank you Mr. Snap. You were our hero during our brief, unplanned stay in Florence KY. May you be rewarded for your kindness.

Have been in this hotel for almost 1 year there has been several issues a couple taken care after waiting months. The owner is a decent person but this is not personal . It’s regarding the emergency issue in my room. I presently do not have a working heater. I made him aware of the issue when my unit first began to show signs of dysfunction approximately 5 weeks ago and continued to ask them to come and take care of it. I had one of the service young man come to my room several days ago at that point it was totally dysfunctional. I could not regulate nor turn the heating off. After reporting this knowing my situation it took 3 days for anyone to come and look at it. All he did was pull the front piece off the wall unit & claimed to have turned it off and recommended I use it this way. Until they get the thermostat. Up to right now the unit does not work at all it is 17 degrees I must use the oven to heat the room needless to say how unhealthy this is for health reason’s also after the service person removed the front cover from the unit it is filthy dirty, dusty cover it appears like it hasn’t been clean since the opening of this particular hotel. I want some resolution. This is a constant issue here negligence I will contact my attorney making him aware of this I have photo’s. Also regarding the clean up of ice & snow is another serious issue. Also have spoken with the owner regarding this it is in a hazardous state.. every time I exit my room or my car I’m frightened I am going to fall due to lack of proper clearing of ice. This is not what good standards of what a decent hotel should look like. If I get I’ll or fall & get injured or my health becomes an issue I will take this further. Believe me it took a lot for me to finally write this but I realize I’m doing myself & the owner a service. By not getting issues taken care of regarding this hotel. This is my second stay here while I’m waiting for my condo’s availability. Last year I also was hear close to a year I can go on & on about complaints I have had to make that continues to be overlooked. This I cannot overlook due to the mere facts that I can freeze to death or burn one or the other not mention the filth from the wall unit that operates both heat and air conditioning. I’ve already had an eye infection. Due to the filth of the air unit and I now have learned why I could not wear my contacts caught an eye infection due to the dirt, dust, particles, from a poorly maintained wall unit. This is unbelievable. For it being 2015 this unit looks like it’s from the 80s I don’t believe Best Western had this in mind when some of your hotels in other states, & areas are amazing & up to date. I’ve done & do quite a bit of traveling. I do hope I hear back via my cell # is 609 453-**** you have my email.

Just finished a 9 day stay at Best Western Sarasota FL.. Truly it was a real pleasure. The room was clean and so was the entire facility. The staff was friendly and took care of every need. The morning breakfast was wonderful and fresh every day. Checking in and out was no problem. Parking was ample. Heated pool and hot tub were clean and well taken care of. It seem all the employees who we were in contact with- loved working their.
The manager Mark Peterson- is a hands on guy . It seems all his staff love working with him. I will be going back again to Sarasota and will be using this Best Western again.

Location – Best Western Bay Harbor, Tampa Florida
Dates:Feb. 9 to Feb. 12, 2015

Problems with customer service occurred every day.
We contacted the front desk every day – sometimes with the same problem
and sometimes with new issues.

These include:

1) Originally assigned Room 327 unloaded clothes and bath items.
After coming back from lunch noted there was no city view
just a 6 ft. concrete block wall.
Got reassigned to Room 631 and had to move all of our stuff.
This should have been caught by the hotel on our reservation.
Failure that resulted in us wasting time moving around.

2) From Feb. 9 thru Feb. 11 toilet was flushing very slowly and almost overflowed.
Front desk was informed each day and no one came up to fix!
Failure that resulted in us having to contact hotel and hope for a fix!

3) Feb. 10 1st floor hallway flooded. Could not use exercise room.
Very disappointing and lack of access to hotel feature.

4) Feb. 10 & Feb. 11th water in sink and toiler had strong sulphur smell.
Couldn’t use coffee in room and ended up with stomach cramps.
Again spent time each day contacting front desk about this.
Could not use coffee maker in room and had to be very cautious with water
A very serious condition that could result in many visitors getting sick.
Might want to call in OSHA or City of Tampa to check out.

5) Feb. 10 & Feb. 11, coffee station in lobby was dirty with sugar, coffee creamer
and water on the station. Front desk again contacted. Hotel attendant
ended up rudely pushing me out of the way on Feb. 11 to get to coffee lids.
Hotels guests could easily get sick from this condition. Need to contact
corporate on changes needed.

6) Feb. 11 at 8:30 pm, called the front desk and requested a wake up call for
5:00 am on Feb. 12 to get to airport on time. No call was made.

Stayed at best western in frankenmuth Michigan worse place . And I will never stay at another started last year birthday get away love frankenmuth thought I would stay there instead of other hotels I usually stay at . I hurt my knee real bad on broken ladder in pool . Was not told renovations was going on my 3 year old started having g breathing problems from dust and debrie as well as my husband . WiFi would not work poor channels on television . Talked to manger was promised free nights stay on my rewards card and a 25$ gift card for hotel after being forgotten about called corperate was sent gift card assumed my free night was in my rewards card . No the manger never put it on did not find out till last weekend when I booked another 2 night stay after many calls I finally got 25$ put back on my credit card but did not get my money back for I was promised to get for my miserable stay ruined my birthday weekend 2 years in a row . Rude people lie after lie my knee is still giving me trouble but no one at hotel cares or corporate cares either . Contacted better buisness buero and will keep calling writing reviews . Big company’s that just lie and don’t care about there guest . Was told by the last woman I spoke to that the CEO said she speaksfor him and when I asked to talk to someone above her she was very rude and hung up on me . This is the way your company treats people I will make sure everyone I speak to will know how horrible this company is . Dirty rooms unsafe conditions rude staff I could go on for days . All I ever wanted is what I was promised reimbursement for the nights I stayed there. But no one will call back or even try to fix this situation . There is a file with all my info and complaints but I’m sure even after this message I still will not get a call and nothing will be resolved. My family friends and everyone I know will never stay at a best western . Worst company I have ever delt with and ppeople need to know the truth I will keep writing reviews on every site I can find.

We had a Great Room at the Vicksburg, MS Best Western, last minute choice. Needed a room that was Pet Friendly as well! A previous night at BW in Hammond LA was not the best!

We have been Reward Member for many years. The Room was Clean, all of it! The room was quiet and one of the best full meal breakfast’s eaten at any of the many motel we have stayed . The staff was great and attentive . The pillows are the best ever!

I stopped by the best western motel in east St. Louis the T.V. didn’t work. They had roaches. I did read that there were no pet. So I checked the person that ran the office came to fix The TV he couldn’t fix it. He saw my dog bowl. He called me a nigger. I pay 50 dollars for the room. He would not give me but forty dollars back he said he was going to call the police. He had a prosidict hand he was middle eastern desent. I am from the Lafayette IN area. I am a Christian my church is 2500 members strong. I am going to ask my pastor to boycott best western hotels and motle. He used profanity to. With a faslse hand he sould know better because god took just one hand and speared his life he should prise god. Are his god. That ten dollars he took from me it is going to cost Best Western a whole lot more. The pricible of it. I am Mad.


Watersisland December 16, 2014 at 8:10 pm

Carlton, carlton, carlton! C’mon. If you were really a Christian you would know that God is spelled with a capital “G”. And you’ve done it more than once. Prosedict? Pros-e-dict? Did you mean “prosthetic”? And if you “did read that there were no pet” (sic) WHY did you bring your dog? Or “dog BOWL” or what ever? Middle Eastern (Caps, Caps, Caps!) desent? Did you mean “descent”? “Motle”? ? “Motel”?. Doesn’t it ever LOOK wrong to you? “Faslese”??? “False”? “speared”? Really? With a “Spear”? Or did you mean “Spare”? BTW…what does the fact that the attendant was Middle Eastern and had a prosthetic hand have to do with anything? “Prise” ? No such word! Did you mean “Prize”… or perhaps – “Praise”? “The pricible of it” (sic). No idea WHAT you were even trying to communicate with that blurb. As for the punctuation, I’d have to copy the entire “Harcourt Brace” text to address your grammar and punctuation.
Hey, Carlton…I attended Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN back in the mid 70′s. Your acknowledgement of being from Lafayette must be an embarrassment to all that live or ever lived in that area. Surely the elementary schools there are able to teach better than that! Some of your attempts at communications can’t even be addressed as grammatical, spelling, syntax errors, or punctuation. Carlton — go back to school! Hey, at least I see you’re quite skilled at spelling the word “nigger” correctly. Do you work for the Klan by any chance?

If there was a way I could give Best Western Executive Inn at 2800 US Highway 84 East, Cairo, Georgia 39828 negative star(s), I would. My whole experience was HORRIBLE. I called and made a reservation the day of arrival (4:45 p.m.). I gave my credit card information and drove 4 1/2 hours to this LOW BUDGET hotel. I arrived after midnight to find out that management (Craig Ward) CANCELLED my room at his request. Per Craig, the rude guy at the service desk, if you do not arrive at Best Western by 6:00 p.m., Best Western cancels your reservation. Per Craig, that is their policy. IF this is their policy, I should have been made aware of this policy when I reserved the room and gave my credit card information at 4:45 p.m. The rate I was quoted on the telephone was not the rate charged to my credit card. There is a $30.00 overcharge discrepancy. The phone in the room did not work and the front desk did not answer the telephone after numerous calls from my cell. There was no internet and the continental breakfast was a joke. After discussing my dissatisfaction I was treated very rude. I have reported the incident to the corporate office, which will go to the GM of The Best Western in Cairo. Good luck with that. I will NEVER go to another Best Western again, especially not the one in Cairo, Georgia. It is Horrible. It is Awful. It is low budget and over-priced. You would better off sleeping in your car.

Our whole family stayed at this hotel for a funeral (that is the only reason it was full this particular night). It is a shame you have to deal with the loss of a loved one and at the same time, have issues at a hotel with unsympathetic employees. Never again will I visit this hotel.

I booked a room at Best Western on October 4, 2014. I was told it was 98 dollars. The room was fine, no complaints until I found out a week later that they took 250 dollars out of my bank account. My banks fraud prevention left me a message on October 5, 2014 but I didn’t listen to it or call them back Until the October 11. That’s when I found out that they took 250 dollars. I called Best Western on the 11th and the lady said yes they charge 250 at first and then refund the difference within a week. She said the clerk should have told me. Well he didn’t. I don’t know if I got the refund, I’ll check Monday with my bank. I was so angry because of other negative things happening in my life. They are fortunate that I am a good person. If they do this to the wrong person there could be very serious consequences.

At Universo in Rome
The wash basin in the room does not have a standard plug but a gadget that may have worked when new but not any more. It does not hold the water in the basin with the result that vast quantities of water go to waste having not been used for washing.
Please sort this out a.s.a.p.
The saved cost in water will pay for the change over.

My wife and I stayed at the Best Western Plus, in Portsmouth, NH from 8/21-8/24. When we checked into the room, I noticed that the bathtub had a ugly, huge caulk patch in the floor of the tub. On our first morning, my wife attempted to brew coffee using the hotel provided coffee pot, but it did not work. We requested a replacement that was delivered sometime that day. Linens were not changed, so we had to ask if the linens would be changed. On 8/23, my wife and I left the room for the day at 8:30 AM, we returned at 8:30 PM and discovered that our room door was left partly open and unlocked by house keeping staff…all day! So anyone in the hotel could have just walked into our room at anytime they wanted. Fortunately nothing was missing, however, it was unsettling to say the least to return to our hotel room at 8:30 at night to find our room un-secure with the door part way open. I will not be staying at Best Western ever again.

False advertising! I’ve been a LOYAL B/W Diamond Rewards member for two years. As your records should show, I stay at B/W’s along the eastern U.S. often, or at least have been. I now sometimes stay at other hotels due to your bullcrap rates. To be as brief as possible, allow me to explain.
I receive ‘offers’ and ‘promotions’ via email offering me ‘up to 20% off’ when I book through I register for these ‘offers’ as required. When I go to make a reservation, I see ‘NO SAVINGS’ what so ever! My rate is actually HIGHER than a ‘NON-REWARDS MEMBER’! I’m also a ‘AAA’ member. You ADVERTISE that ‘AAA’ members receive AT LEAST 10% (up to 20%) off regular rates…another LIE!
Here’s the proof (recent rate inquiry for a S.C. B/W hotel using ‘’.
NON-Rewards member (anybody)=$65.03
‘AAA’ member rate=$65.03
Diamond Rewards (me, signed in)=$65.03 (B/W rewards rate)
‘AAA’ rate (signed in)=$65.03
There is NO SAVINGS! “ANYONE” gets the same rate I do. Where is MY ‘up to 20% savings’? With AAA, where is my ‘at least 10% off’???
To add even more insult, the ‘walk-in rate’ with coupon is $49.99!!! I understand the restrictions with this coupon.
So basically, being a LOYAL DIAMOND REWARDS MEMBER, I pay the same or more than a non-rewards member. Where are my savings. The only benefit is obtaining rewards points.
Being in the ‘transportation business’, I offer my ‘loyal clients’ a discount (because I want to keep them as a client). What is your business ethic…to FALSELY offer me a ‘discounted rate’?
Needless to say, I am, and have been, disgusted with your ‘false advertising’ techniques. Show your ‘Loyal’ members some respect.
And yes, I am aware of your ‘program’ policies, so please don’t respond with a nonsense reply. I look forward to a prompt response. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

This week we stayed at the Best Western Plus in Leland NC., the hotel looked just like the photos on the internet, inside and out! I never travel with my dog because pet friendly hotels are usually not clean and they smells. But this trip I had no choice.
My small dog stayed with us, and to my surprise! the room was spotless and smell fresh.
I checked ever where for poor housekeeping but did not find any thing to have fault with. The linen were spotless, the towels were excellent and the pillows & beds were comfortable.
Mary at the front desk was delightful in every way; pleasant, cheerful, informative, and resourceful (we felt at home) she was helpful in finding us a dog spa for the dog..
Thanks Mary!!! Housekeeping staff were very nice and helpful (excellent cleaning).
Wonderful breakfast! We thank you all at Best Western Plus in Leland, NC for making our stay delightful. Only wish you were closer to the beach.

Thank you so much. We were able to utilize Best Western earlier seven evenings in the March – April time frame this year. As a net result, they have sent us a voucher for $50.00 to be used by September of this year. Unfortunately, we are still recovering from an automobile accident and are not sure we can make that time frame. None of this is your fault obviously, and this has been an ongoing issue. This last Spring was the first time either of us have been able to travel to any degree and we probably took it to an extreme.

Again, thank you and we are so looking forward to being “ On the road again “.

First we stayed at many B.W. and the one in Williams the staff all where very special great service.. I canceled one in Logan as we thought that is where we would be, I called around 2:30 and was told I would be charged $50 I was told they have a 24 hr rule, which I did not know. the others where by 4 pm.. You have a sign in all B. W. that state you receive a night free after 3 separate places, the sign does not state you can’t use the free night until 3 or 4 weeks later. Since we where on a trip, we sure can’t f afford another big trip and use our free nights. Then we have to use them by January 31st.. The rewards are very nice, but I wanted to use 2 free nights since we where on a large trip. We can’t afford another trip for several years..I feel we deserve something since I was told that I would be able to use the free nights on our trip. You ca see from the record now many nights we spend at a Best Western. Thank you for your time Elaine Pankow.

I booked 3 rooms at the Best Western in San Diego, CA where I received confirmation numbers. Confirmed twice & was assured everything was reserved. One week prior to leaving I received a message to call the manager Onka who proceeds to tell me we were only on a waiting list for $139 a night but the rooms were really $209 the new employee made a mistake, but if I could write a nice statement about her & the hotel she could over ride the system & let me have them for $159 a night. One of the parties got lost & was going to be a day late so we called to make sure the room would still be held. Was assured it would be held but we would still need to pay for that night. No problem that was fair & we understood. Well when we arrived after a long drive we were told it was marked as no show & they had no rooms. No hotels had rooms due to comic com so after an hour of arguing they gave us a room at the expense of someone else according to them. I feel bad for whoever but our whole family was staying at that hotel because we were all in my little brothers wedding . Now today at look at my credit card statement & they charged me an extra night. I have never had such a problem with dealing with a hotel. I don’t know how many new people they have but everything was always blamed on them. We will NEVER stay there again. Thanks Onka & Nicholas for making our vacation stressful & less then it should of been.


michelle anderson August 2, 2014 at 1:16 am

I forgot to mention this was the Best Western Yacht Harbor hotel in San Diego, Ca. I will be putting my opinion of this place on TripAdvisor like the manager Onka (not sure of spelling) asked me to. Unfortunately it will not be what she asked me to write.

Blood on the pillowcase. Bright red blood. Gross and unsafe. Need I say more?

This was at the Best Western in Statesville, NC
