Original review: Jan. 14, 2019

This Hotel literally stole $300 from us, we used Air Miles to book our accommodations and had a terrible checkout and when we got home we found there to be over $500 charged to our card from the Best Western Plus in Okotoks Alberta. The manager was rude and would not respond for the most part. There is another review of basically the same thing happening with another unlucky patron who stayed here on TripAdvisor, this Hotel should be held responsible!!! They stole our money and I will never ever stay in a Best Western again and I am doing my very best to tell everyone I know.

The bed was comfy and the hotel was quiet and clean. Staff are very polite and accommodating. Location is perfect - close to everything. They allow animal companions. We left our dogs at home but a dog-friendly hotel is a plus. The location is safe, also.

Original review: Dec. 26, 2018

I didn't want to stay at BW but had no choice as all the other motels were booked. Walking in the room I saw bugs crawling up the walls, in the tub, on the floors. The floors were sticky so I took the towels and lined them to the bed so I could walk without my socks sticking. I started collecting the bugs in the plastic cups. I didn't take a shower as I couldn't wash all the bugs away. Since it was so late and I noticed the lobby clerk sitting outside smoking and I was very tired, I tried to sleep. Couldn't sleep with the thoughts of bugs all around. The small refrigerator kept making growling noises. It was horrible. The AM breakfast? was unattended except for the cowboy who drove in from the road, plated up, ate and left. There's no one around at the desk or anywhere. I'd rather sleep in my car than at another Best Western.

The worst experience ever. I've booked a couple rooms at the Best Western in Deerfield Beach, FL and for the most part it has been okay. The guy who works at the front desk (Hector) is who ruined my experience. They offered me a free night based on my rewards points that I have accumulated over time. So I call trying to actually take advantage of my points, he's telling me I don't have points or a reservation in which I do and then quickly transfers me to customer service. Customer service then tries to get in contact with Hector at the hotel but no answer. Between the rep and I, we must've called 26 times but no answer.

So I head over to the hotel and Hector is nowhere to be found. I had to scream for assistance and then he appears. As I'm explaining the situation he just stands there with a smirk on his face and continuously tells me that I have to place another reservation and put more money down when everything was in place already. As I'm explaining the situation again he tells me that I have to talk to the manager who comes in at 7am and that I have to leave because I'm trespassing when I literally just checked out the same day. Hector is very unprofessional and does not need to be in customer service at all. Because of him, I will NEVER recommend a Best Western Hotel to anyone. EVER.

Friendly Staff @ check-in. Friendly hotel employees. Will definitely stay again. They need more selections for their breakfast but everything else was good. Exceptional clean rooms!!! Hotel is in a good location.

I felt the motel was out of date and very dirty. The parking lot was full but it was terrible compared to the others I've stay in recently. I stayed in Tupelo Best Western the night before. Although the room was updated and clean, the staff was literally pushing me out. I felt unappreciated and stressed out.

Went online to make reservations. Charged one price then there was another price before we went then they gave us a coupon for $20 that was only good for 2 hrs. We had made reservations already so we did not think that was business like.

Great place to stay if you have pets. We have 2 dogs and the place was clean and very accommodating. Excellent breakfast to help get you on the road quickly and not to be bothered with going someplace else.

Original review: Nov. 6, 2018

I’ve been going to Best Western hotels for years and for the most part every visit has been pretty good. The last few times that I stayed with them was at the Best Western Plus Cary Inn - NC State on Walnut St. The night staff didn’t want to get me more blankets and towels for my kids, the room smelled of mildew, and I requested a mini fridge to put the kids' milk in but I didn’t get it until the next afternoon. SMH. I was utterly surprised about my experience there. Then a week or two later I try logging on to my Best Western account to make another reservation in the future, but I couldn’t log on. Turns out my account was randomly selected and put under review and now it has permanently been deleted with no warning or explanation. I was just told that the account was randomly reviewed and deleted. I will NEVER bring business back to Best Western and it saddens me that they actually just delete accounts for no reason.

We love Best Western and have been rewards members for years. Although it has been a mystery as to how to use our points till now. We called the Piedmont, NC. hotel on Oct. 18th and finally after 4 years we were able to use our points for a very nice room. Nice person at check in and great breakfast. We noticed when we reached our room that across the hall was an electric cord going from one room to another. When leaving the next morning we stepped into hall and the rooms across the hall were being opened up and hot steam came out. I asked the man opening the door if it was for BED bugs and he said yes but that it was regular maintenance preventative. Needless to say when arriving home I undressed in garage and washed everything in my suitcase as well. Very scary. Is this indeed new maintenance procedure? Or should I be concerned that I may have brought home bedbugs?

Arrive Friday 12 Oct. 2018 for an ADA room for 2 nights. We were advised the elevator was broken and would not be fixed until the following week, and if we wished we could cancel without charge. They also informed us all motel/hotels in the area were fully booked. I checked 3 or 4 and they were fully booked. I was offered an $18.00 a night discount. ($99 instead of $117 a night). They are an 80 unit motel with 2 ADA rooms. Ours was on the 3rd floor with no elevator. The stairs at one end of the hall (closest to our room) was NOT ADA COMPLIANT, it had carpet for the steps and only had a handrail on one side with rough stone walls, where any slip, trip, or fall could be very painful.

The stairway at the far end of the hall did have handrails on both sides with vinyl stair treads and rough stone walls. The exit we had to use had brick stairs with rough concrete handrails. No ramp was near the exit. While the staff was polite and friendly we will never stay here again. IT IS TOO DANGEROUS FOR MY WIFE WITH A STROKE AND RIGHT SIDE TOTAL DISABILITY.

Original review: Sept. 19, 2018

I very seldom have any issues with Best Western hotels, but I am compelled to report this matter for the sake of the consumers, Best Western and its reputation. Recently 9/7—9/9, my wife and I, stayed two nights at Best Western Plus Colony Inn, 3600 El Camino Real, Atascadero, CA. 93422. On arrival in room number 229, as we were getting settled, we were disturbed and alarmed to find a used condom wrapper in plain sight next to the nightstand. We began to wonder if the rest of the room was clean, which it appeared to be. So, we graciously dismissed it as an apparent oversight of the housekeeping personnel. We immediately took the used condom wrapper to the lobby to report the incident to ** at the front desk who was surprised and offered us another room which we declined, because he specifically gave us that room for its quiet location.

However, the second night of our stay on 9/8, we were very rudely awakened at 2 am. After peering through the peephole in the door, I couldn’t believe my eyes. To my astonishment and surprise there was a group of 8-10 college students sitting in a circle on the floor right in front of my door partying, laughing, talking and carrying on so loudly, with no regard for sleeping guests. I opened the door to express my anger and immediately they left. My wife and I, now upset could not get back to sleep for the next hour or so. If there was a security camera to monitor the hallway, management could have done something about this.

I sent a email complaint on 9/12/18, to the Best Western regional manager Raj ** who actually works for Core Hotels, LLC out of San Francisco, who owns and operates numerous hotel chains. I have not received any acknowledgment. I then sent the same complaint on 9/15/18, to Core Hotels, LLC and still have not received a response. I will never stay in a Best Western or any other hotel operated by Core Hotels, LLC. They obviously do not care about their guests.

Worst example of Best Western Hotels that I have ever seen in my life! The whole hotel is a construction site! This hotel should not even be open to the public. It’s dangerous and very inconvenient. Only one elevator works and the whole parking lot is filled with building materials. Worst hotel experience I have ever had! I would not stay here again if they were giving rooms away free! Makeshift front desk that is a joke! Why would Best Western allow this?

I called the toll free number to determine how many points I have on my rewards account. I was greeted by a lady (I'm being nice when I call her a lady) named Farris. She asked me several question for security reasons. When I refused to give her my phone number, she stated she would not be able to help me any further. I told her I did not want them to sell my info, so there has to be another way to verify who I am after asking me my full name, e-mail, home address, where was the last place I stayed. Now keep in mind I travel 45 weeks out of the year. So to remember where I stayed last?? Really??? When I asked for a supervisor, I was told she would give me to a supervisor. I told her I would call right back and ask for a supervisor that way or better yet would it be better I called the CEO. She laughed and said hold on... Farris desk partner got on the phone and she gave me what I wanted to hear. I hung up.

I called the CEO office Mr. Kong, I was told he will not talk to customers. (Now how does this guy get paid). I asked Stacy would it be better to call him on his cell number which is **, she stated I can do what I want. I asked if I should post his phone number on the internet for everyone to see, she stated, "You are free to do what you want." She hung up on me. Great customer service. I have decided to cash in my points and will move on to another hotel that wants someone who travels as much as I do.

I have been a BW Platinum customer for 5 years. I travel 21 weeks out of the year mostly for business. I decided to book a personal trip for Labor Day this year. The hotel was 440.00 for two nights. Don’t normally do this but decided to check out Travelocity. Turns out the same hotel was being rented for 240.00. I called BW and told them I could book the same hotel for ½ of the rate. Their response was, "You should have book through them." I feel they have no loyalty to their customers or they would have offered a competitive rate. Why should I pay more just because I am loyal to the BW brand?

Best Western Junction, Texas - I used BestWestern.com to book the hotel. After a marathon drive from Southern Colorado I arrived at the hotel - to be informed that they do not honor reservations made over the chain's website... "I should have called them!" How was I to know these country bumpkins don't know how to use the internet? I've elected to cancel my Best Western Gold Card and not use this chain in the future.

My wife and I were on vacation earlier this year and were trying to find a hotel in the Daytona Beach area. We started the search online and found availability in the closest Best Western Hotel for $66. I put in my credit card and reserved the room for $66 charge. When we arrived at the hotel we found that there was a $33 service charge added to the bill. I was not aware that the reservation was hijacked by CCI HOTEL GUEST RESERVATIONS. I could not find any information regarding this company online. Since I agreed to the charges, my credit card company would not stop payment to this company.

I am wondering if this company is an arm of Best Western just there to increase profits. I wrote a letter to the CEO and president of Best Western and have not heard anything back. I have seen similar complaints regarding this company online. After appearing at the hotel and seeing the $99 charge, I attempted to cancel the reservation but was told I cannot cancel. I always like to stay at Best Westerns because they were a high quality outfit. I think they are far more greedy than any of the others.

My husband & myself along with my brother in law who had his own room stayed at this location (Best Western Plus Huntersville, NC) from 7/21/18 -7/25/18. Only once was our room cleaned the way it should be. No vacuum, No Shampoo or soap. The king size bed was hard in the center and soft /lumpy on both sides, My brother in laws room was the same. The garbage outside by the back door was not emptied once and was overflowing onto the ground with odor. The girl working the evening shift spent her time eating grilled food with her male friends in the breakfast area (the men were drinking). The only good thing was the woman that took care of the breakfast, Theresea. She went above and beyond. Friendly making sure everyone had what they needed and even took our garbage when we were done and a very clean area. She should get a raise!

I made a reservation through Priceline and paid in full prior to arriving. The lady named Taylor at the front desk in the Homewood, Alabama location, of State Farm Parkway would not let me check in with the passbook ID I have on my phone, which is state verified, nor would she let me give her a paper copy they sent me online when I originally ordered it. This was the last $100 dollars I had to my name. She then refused to give me a refund for the night's room I already paid for. It was extremely hot outside and I waited in the lobby trying to figure out what to do while she continued to press me as to what I was going to do. I'll never stay with or recommend this hotel to anyone. I am disgusted with such horrible service.

DONT STAY HERE! (Pontoon Beach Illinois) Their front desk was so disorganized. They were sent some paperwork they request from me prior to my arrival. So I sent it days ahead of time, So that check in would go smoothly when my fiance got there ahead of me. When he got there no one had knowledge of anything. Eventually after calling & questioning it suddenly it appeared. They refused to give me my preference of room. 2 double beds was the request. They would only give me a king. The manager Vicki made it clear to me that I was being punished because I booked through Priceline. Instead of them directly. It was not sold out! They had 5 cars in the parking lot. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone! You have been warned!

Montrose W Ave - The supervisor had me and my children forcefully removed because of a shoe policy in the dining area where no signs were seen just word of mouth. Police were called. I have never been so humiliated and embarrassed in my entire life. The supervisor called the police again on me The next day. Said I was harassing the business by calling to speak with the manager, not one time did the supervisor ask for my name when I called to speak to the manager.

I have never seen such unprofessional behavior from a supervisor let alone the manager who never responded to my complaint from corperate. I WOULD NOT RENT A ROOM FROM THERE EVER AGAIN. My children were treated unfairly, it was not a family friendly place and the supervisor is very rude and the manager condones customers being treated unfairly and being disrespected by employees. No rules or written policy was given about shoes being worn throughout the hotel during my stay as a guest.

We made our reservation 4 days before arrival, I called the 800# to set our reservation for 6/22 & 6/23. Nowhere does it state the hotel is going through renovations, in fact it wasn't added to the website until I mentioned it in my complaint. The Sales Manager & Hotel Manager want you to know the renovations of the rooms were done in December - but mind you, the sink to wash your hands is in the bedroom far away from the toilet area - I only know because we went to look at the room to make sure it was large enough for the 3 of us.

My mother is a senior, who recently survived her 2nd heart attack only this time flat lined at the hospital, I was taking her back to our old "summer hang out" in Mammoth Lakes CA. However, the chemical stench in the elevator was so bad, my son and my mother both had asthma attacks. When I brought this to the Hotel through the BBB, the Sales Manager and the Hotel Manager both said it was altitude sickness, even though my mother confirmed on the phone with the booking rep at the hotel it was an asthma attack to the chemicals in the elevator. Additionally the Hotel Manager implied she sees this all the time with aging travelers.

Due to the policy in place with Best Western, they still charged us $91, because their cancellation is 24 hours before arrival. My point is, the rudeness, the accusations and the smell make this hotel company one of the worst in ethics and empathy. My mother agreed to the charge, but there was no other choice, either pay the half or pay the whole. Based on health issues, I would recommend moving to another hotel as fast as your car can go. Best Western isn't anything it used to be, and Hilton has far better rates, far better accommodations and a better attitude.

Travelers Beware. We made a reservation early Tuesday morning with the Best Western Hotels for a king size bed, pull out couch, and pet friendly room. We were traveling to Michigan from Connecticut with a 15 month old baby, a 15 year old child, and a dog. We received a phone call as we were walking out the door that our reservation was not available, and their establishment could only give us a non-pet friendly room with a king size bed, a desk, and chair. So our dog can sleep where? And our son can sleep in a desk chair? Stunned we contacted their corporate office only to receive empty words of apology and a bonus $25.00 voucher. How generous of them!!!

As a family oriented business we were baffled as to how they could so easily screw us over!!! As a result of their blatant error, we now will have to have our 15 month old in the car a lot longer than necessary. And after talking with their corporate office they probably could care less about what they have put our family through, but I want future guests to be aware of Best Western's Reservation practices.

Nasty disgusting BED bugs are my mother UP. I told her not to stay this hotel because it was dirty. The last time I went I refused to take off my shoes but she convinced me that they remodeled. Well of course they did remodel but only the lobby and decor apparently because my mom or are UP badly and then had to argue with the rep. I hated this stay first of all because the representatives were checking my kids arms to be sure that they had on wristbands in the pool. It is never that serious especially when you have bigger fish to fry like those bug bugs. I've always loved Best Western and have been a rewards member for years. It's the main place I would stay and refer others looking for quality hotel with good pricing. That is now over with. Your brand is now trash to me. I'm so glad I won't be stay in with you all on my Kentucky trip.

Booked hotel thru Hotel.com looking for pet friendly. This hotel was listed so I booked for 1 night. Had to prepay for room. When I arrived for check-in, I was told no pets allowed. The front staff reluctantly allowed me to stay knowing I could not get my refund back at this point. They put me in an all handicapped room which was ridiculous as the shower curtain could not close because of a permanent seating structure attached to the tub. I am not handicapped. To my surprise there were doggy stations on the premises so it was contradictory to what the front desk told me.

Next day I went to breakfast which was being cleared at 9:10 am. The laminated Guest Directory stated breakfast served until 9:30 am.The staff argued that the Guest Directory was incorrect and needed to be changed to 9 am. This was frustrating. Then I observed the employees of the hotel were eating in the breakfast room which is not professional when guests are offered breakfast. I could hear staff talking about the dog owner (me) within earshot. I have never been treated so poorly at a hotel in my life. When I asked to talk to a Manager, I was told he did not work on weekends .Staff was extremely rude! What a joke!!

My husband and I checked in to Best Western PLUS on May 27. The next day our room was not touched, (waste paper cans not emptied, no fresh towels, bed not made). The same day there were children laughing loudly and running around wildly, hopping up on the reservation desk, riding a scooter in the lobby area, and going into rooms with the housekeeper. The next day a child was seen lying on the clean towels on the linen cart! These were undoubtedly children of the housekeeper. I reported this activity to "Nick" who was most helpful, apologetic, and got us clean towels, fresh garbage bags, and said he would "take care of the problem". If it wouldn't have been for him "bending over backwards" to help us, we would have refused to pay our entire bill. (We had reservations and stayed for 2 nights.) We decided we will never stay in this motel again, and perhaps will not patronize Best Western motels again. Folio # ** Room # 215.

Best Western Hotel Monmouth Junction, NJ/Over-Charged (TWICE). 1 Princeton, NJ, United States. Contact information: BestWesternprincetoninn.com. We are platinum rewards members and have been staying at Best Western Hotel located at 4191 US-1 Monmouth Junction New Jersey, since May 4th 2018. We came back here because we have always had a good experience here. The staff knows us, the breakfast is good, and it is a generally safe environment. We returned even though we were wrongfully overcharged in the past. On Wednesday, May 23rd 2018, I returned to my room to discover my key was deactivated. I went to manager **, he took 30 minutes to do what other staff members did in mere seconds.

We later learned what he did was check us out, unbeknownst to us, and checked us back in. He misconstrued the dates of the initial Reservation, and deceptively overcharged us for 2 weeks while our reservation was not yet expired. Because of him charging our card too early, and past the correct amount we accumulated additional overdraft fees. He charged us an excess of $1,074.33 (ALL AT ONCE) which is also against Best Western Policy. He then gave us a 4 day credit which no one wants to redeem. We were told he's the only one to rectify the situation, but he has been avoiding us by not coming to work on his scheduled days. ** at the front desk told us, that ** would arrive to the hotel at 10 pm on 5/25/18 to resolve the issue, but he did not come, and we were not notified.

We returned to this hotel despite the fact that this man has done this to us in the past. We pardoned those previous actions hoping that he would deal honestly with us this time around. It is difficult for us to believe that a manager would make this mistake with us twice. This leads us to believe that the overcharging and the dates of the charge was intentional. According to Hotel staff and customer service, they agree that THIS IS NOT NORMAL PROCEDURE. We are asking for further investigation, and that this be rectified professionally, and speedily. P.S, We have also NOT received our other platinum rewards items. We were supposed to receive 700 points per night from May 14th up to our check out date, which we have not been getting.

My husband and I checked into the Best Western Plus Airport in Shreveport Louisiana this past Friday on the 18th of May as we were attending a concert that evening. Check in with no problem. In fact they gave us a room upstairs because it was already available. The problems began when we got into the bathroom smells like urine, after having looked around I found out why, the toilet had a significant amount of urine on the bottom left and right side. And it look like it had been there for some time. We went on to the concert that evening, concert let out at 10, we returned around 10:30 back to the hotel, only to find there were no parking places!

There were two large trucks, one pulling a trailer and one pulling a boat, each one took up no less than 5 parking places then there was a motorhome coach parked long ways taking up six parking spaces! So we went into the clerk who was somewhat rude as she wouldn't even give me the courtesy of eye contact. Her response was, "I can't do anything about that," . We don't know who's parked there so I can't help you". I said, "Where we supposed to park, we paid $147 for this room and there's no parking!" She told us to park in the fire lane or a handicapped space.

We had no choice but to leave our car in fire lane. She really couldn't have cared less about the situation. Once we got into our room, looking down from our window, we watched as other cars coming in circling the parking lot also no parking places. They parked in the fire lane as well. When we got into our room that evening I turned on my bedside table and the only thing it did was strobe. It never would come just on my husband's turned his on and it's strobed just like the other and then his just went off altogether so we couldn't even sit in bed and read. $147 bucks,.. I'm curious what the "plus" is in their title!!

Couldn't have been more angry. Did not sleep well because of the car parking situation. So my advice is DON'T STAY AT THE BEST WESTERN PLUS AIRPORT IN SHREVEPORT, LA. THERE WAS NO BEST, AND CERTAINLY NO PLUS (unless you're talking about the extra pee, no parking, rude desk employee, and stroking nightstand lights!)

Ok let’s start from the beginning when I actually thought this hotel was going to be great... Started off with a couple calls to the hotel front desk where I spoke with a very nice young lady who lives on island. We talked about early check in and late check out times and I told her I would call back regarding booking. A couple hours later I called back to book and she asked me about being members or triple A members and she said she got us a great rate of $108 a night. I said, "Wow that’s good, what about taxes?" She says, "That’s included!" She then said, "Yes it’s a good rate considering it’s peak season and rates are normally 170 a night." I agreed what a great rate, she went over personal info and got my credit card info and confirmed the nights and we were done.

I waited for a confirmation email but did not receive one, so I called back 2 more times to request one and never got one that night. I called the 800 number and they stated the reservation was there but couldn’t send the email only the hotel could... but that my rate was different. I said must have been a mistake and I’d call the hotel in the morning since it was 10pm at this time.

Next morning I call the hotel to get the email sent and to get the rate fixed. The girl who answers gets the email sent which I get and I ask her about the rate. She said, "No matter what was said the rate is the 170 rate..." I ask her to speak with a manager. She states she is the front desk manager... I ask her if the calls are recorded and she states yes, so I ask her to listen to the call and have herself or her boss contact me...

1 hour later a man named KD or KB calls me saying he is the general manager and starts rambling off how the hotel never in its 20 yrs offered a rate of $108 a night and wouldn’t be able to stay in business if it did. I allow him to continue his ramble and state that’s not the point... And then I ask him if he listened to the call, he says their calls aren’t recorded...

I asked then why did your manager state that they were?!?! He then gets defensive (mind you I haven’t even gotten upset or raised my voice once) and he says, "I’m not going to get into it with what was said... I’m trying to fix this..." "Oh great, how can we fix this," I say... He says, "Well at this point it doesn’t sound like you’ll be happy here and we should look at putting you at another hotel?!?" Now I’m like WTH?!?!? He says he doesn’t think I’ll enjoying staying there?!? How would he know... Plus he never offered an apology or any way to “fix” the issue. He says, "Maybe you should just call corporate..." At this point I’m at a loss of words and say, "Yah I think that’s best" and hang up.

Well turns out this is the OWNER of this Best Western and guess what else? He CANCELED my reservation without my knowledge and didn’t even send an email or anything telling me that when I arrive in a few hours I won’t have a hotel to stay at!!! I contact Best Western who tell me this little bit of information which had they not this could have really been a big issues...

Do not stay at this hotel! Stay in a condo or anywhere else... Someone that owns a location like this and treats his customers the way he did should not be running a business! Never once did I expect the 108 rate once it was confirmed that it was incorrect. What I wanted was the rate that I got online that was cheaper than what I booked at... But not once did he listen or even offer to help... Sooo $10 a night just cost you a customer, bad reviews, and referrals.
