    Very good

    The room was very nice and a very extensive Continental Breakfast was included in the price. Very nice.

    Wish it had a bar/restaurant and a pool.

    Fabulous

    Close to my business meeting in Troy the next day. Free WiFi was useful. Useful to be able to grab a breakfast as part of my rate. Not a great breakfast, but at least 2 or 3 hot choices & yogurt and commercial granola in addition to the usual cereals & not-very-good-looking muffins. I didn't expect a moderatelt priced Best Western to provide terry cloth robes. A nice touch.

    A couple of minor housekeeping issues. Room had been cleaned & readied, but it was disconcerting to find someone else's shirt hanging in the closet. The cleaner should have removed that. Also, they left the bathroom tissue box with very few tissues in it.

    Superb

    The beds were very comfortable. Very nice toiletries. Plenty of towels. Nicely appointed room. Good, free wi-fi in the room. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. I liked having access to hot water, a selection of teas in the afternoon. There was a complementary breakfast which I could have tried, but I preferred to sleep in the cozy bed!

    Only one tiny problem -- the refrigerator motor was too noisy so we just unplugged it.

    Fabulous

    There seemed to be some kind of "plastic" covering over the mattress that I could feel and that made the bed not feel great. Also, the room colors in the room were dark and seemed a bit out of date. Should lighten it up with white bedspread and lighter design elements.=

    Superb

    Very nice and well maintained with very friendly staff, good parking, and great breakfast.

    I just don't like very thick, heavy, feather-laden duvets. They are just too hot! And, if I throw them off the bed the underlying sheets and light blanket are fine but don't come up enough to cover shoulders and arms. Otherwise, I'd like full movie service, absence of which I find disappointing, this visit and the last, a few years ago. Bjw
