The upkeep of facility and quality of room cleaning and front desk service indicate years of poor management. As a Best Western customer for years, i found this hotel to have an extremely low rating compared to any other Best western I have ever stayed in. Even lower rating than full size Holiday Inns (which are typically more ran down than Holiday Inn expresses.) Obvious facility deterioration/disfunction clearly shows management does not care. Electrical outlet in clear site as you 1st enter room cracked/broken, yet no one ever inspected, and replaced. Cleaning staff not trained to report such discrepancies (poor management). Just like electronic door lock, you have to lift up on door to get to open after keying. I reported to front desk microwave had oversized (wrong) glass rotary tray so that microwave door could not be closed without shoving plate off rollers, and wouldn't rotate for even cooking. Staff appears to give excuses first, then if you complain enough times, do something about complaint. I stayed there a week, they never replaced incorrect microwave part, or even followed up, or asked if problem was resolved. On check out, I let them know again, they never fixed, was met with immediate excuse, "I told maintenance". What they should have been saying or at least thinking, I am sorry, I should have followed up. Normally I would assume, an oversight, no big deal. But when i dropped laundry off at front desk, only to return at end of day and find out my laundry was not there, I was given a bizarre excuse by front desk, instead of 'I will call them right away'. Then when they called. I had to listen to argument back and forth, until I finally told desk clerk, quit with the blame game and just ask how soon can they get them, where are my cloths. Other signs of poor management besides inconsistencies in cleaning from one house keeper to the next over a week's time, was dirt build up in room. I had to stop wearing white socks around the room, because it appeared the carpet has never been shampooed since its installation. My white socks quickly became black. Dirt build up in corners of bathroom, top half of shower wall not cleaned for a long time, with grose splatter on it, TV screen all smeared, mirrors, etc. Under tables, white pellet things or spider eggs near spider webs. Turning TV to an angle revealed some kind of shredded paper or mouse beading under TV, etc. Etc.

I have stayed hear many times over the past years. The owners and staff are very dedicated to making your stay your home away from home. Very, very nice rooms and grounds too. Especially now they totally remodeled everything. New carpet, paint, pictures, furniture and more. Great people and great place to stay.
