So now Best Western has decided to team with the high pressure membership sales with Diamond Resorts. This is just one of the sleaze industries out there that make promises broken and manipulate monies from every walk of life they can.. Constantly skirting the edge of fraud and must have hundreds of lawyers on retainer would be my guess. Shame on you Best Western! There are other places to stay and although I have been a loyal rewards member for some time and have enjoyed such, I can forsee changing to a different venue and company. Please reconsider this extremely poor business decision that will only serve to destroy your customer's reasonable faith in your product. No one likes to be fooled....not even a fool.

I have been a long standing customer at best western of Hartland mich.I have stayed there numerous times and always got exceptional service until the evening of Oct 30-2018.when I went to check in I was told they COULD NOT give me a room due to something about on my last stay I trashed a room.I HAVE NEVER EVER DONE THAT.I was not back charged for it .a few years ago we were down there for a family reunion and I had booked 2 rooms.in one of the rooms small kids found a crack pipe next to the bed.it was reported to mangement and I was not charged for that room.I HAVE NEVER EVER TRASHED A ROOM AT YOUR HOTEL BUT BECAUSE OF THE RUDENESS OF YOUR FRONT DESK CLERK THAT NIGHT I WILL NEVER EVER STAY THERE AGAIN AND I WILL TELL ALL FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO NOT GO THERE.WE GOT BETTER TREATMENT ATA HOTEL 20 MILES DOWN THE ROAD.MYSELF AND EVERYONE I KNOW ARE NOW BOYCOTTING BEST WESTERN

My name is Richard Brundage, a 5th generation family from the town of Dillon, Montana. I had made reservations at the Best Western Paradise Inn in Dillon, Montana, for the nights of the 7,8,9th of September. I had just found out for health reasons that I would not be able to attend my 60th (and presumably my last) class reunion there on those dates. When I called to cancel, I talked with a "Chaz", and after explaining the health situation, I was told - without I might add any "Oh, so sorry you won't be attending", or anything comparable to that - "That rate is non-refundable", and you'll be charged the full amount - that's the way it is." As President of my own corporation, I find that kind of employee response totally unacceptable, unreasonable, and certainly uncaring to say the least. I have already posted a review on Trip Advisor, and will continue to do so on other sites.

Bad attituted - 119 d 10 h ago

I stayed at the Best Western in Addison Texas and I am completely appalled at the lack of customer service and complete disdain for having to be at work the room smelled of mold and must and housekeeping began trying to rush me out at 10 am twice someone opened the door and tried to gain entry to my room . I was told by the front desk Mickey was the disgruntled gentleman not helping me that this is what they do? So apparently at this establishment they are rude,uncaring,hate their life and job people who throw you out of your room before check out also they are not a service animal friendly establishment in fact I would go as far as saying the discriminated against myself and my service dog I think I may contact an attorney and ask if my rights were interacted a pon. This is by far the worst experience e I have ever had any a hotel I will never stay at a best western again ever

Best Western arrowhead lodge and suites in black river falls,Wi is littered with bed bugs. I typically submit a review through my email from best western, however this time around after having an issue with bed bugs I never received an email. Seems a little fishy. I didn't think too much of it until I heard from a few of my coworkers that the same thing had happened to them after they had an issue with bed bugs. Seems like there's something up at this property. I would highly suggest corporate looks into this property. Because of this experience myself and the rest of my coworkers will not be staying in best western on our trips.

Flew into J. Tunes airport, needed a room for the night. Stayed one night, Aug, 13, 2018, at Belle Meade Inn and Suites in Nashville, TN. The room was fine as was the service in general, but I write this review to highly commend the Manager, Ben. He was very accommodating, pleasant, and informative. Had several good conversations with him and would hope his supervisor reads this and extends our appreciation.

Ken. Stayed at the Best Western Plus wine country in west Kelowna on Carrington road Aug 7, 8, and 9. All of the employees were friendly, cheerful, knowledgeable and efficient. I would definitely reccommend this facility very highly.

This place is not right an they are very racist people. 99% of the employees are Spanish and don't speak English. Today I was fired because yesterday I refused to clean a room which had bed bugs. I told her I didn't want to take them home but the crazy part about it she took the room off a Spanish chicks sheet an put it on mines. They don't like black queens an kings. Us queens will get 15+ rooms a day while the Spanish people gets 7 an less. SMH it's all good the because I know my worth just make sure you know yours 511 HAVE BED BUGS!!! Front desk employees are rude an no one speaks English.. DANIA BEACH FL

Best Western St Catharines Ontario Canada does not believe they need to abide by local codes and laws. There antiquated fitness and pool areas do not meet code standards in many area, The quality of work is that of a poorly trained handyman. The local government for many previous years have provided substantial grants to update facilities to accommodated the handicapped but nothing has been done in these areas. Cleaning of the area is extremely poor and in some areas non existent. Complaints to staff and management are met with a laugh. Complaints to the municipality that much of the facilities utilities due non meet code are meet with the same indifference and they can not make the owner bring the facility to code which should have been done when it was built. This week i asked the owner to provide alternate handicapped parking due to resurfacing of the lot in segments. The owner told me that no accommodation was being provided and if i complained to the local authority my membership to the club would be revoked. So if your a handicapped person avoid Best Western Hotels unless you want to end up like myself with no place to go to help with my disability because the owners of this franchise also own the other major hotels in town and the only other facility that has the items that help is the Ymca and the price per year is more than double.I would have preferred to have made this complaint to Best Western Management but finding the CEO online was not possible. But if Management would like to discuss my complaint regarding Best Westerns Treatment of handicapped they can reach me at (hidden)

On 18 Apr, 27 pax stayed at Best Western Leoso Hotel Leverkusen (Cologne, Germany). Full payment had been done before the reservation date already. However, on 24 Apr 18, this hotel website cut 500EUR from our company credit card with no notice. When we asked the Hotel with which reason this amount was cut down, they replied due to one room's carpet was wet a little in front of the shower room They said that they had sent that email about this issue to our company upon the group check out. But, the email they sent that information is the mail that our operation does not use and had never mentioned through out our reservation process. If they really want to inform this matter, firstly, the reception & staffs should have informed about the wet carpet when the group check-out, but didn't. Second, they should have sent the mail to the address which reservation was made, but didn't. Third, even if they had sent the mail, they should have waited the confirmation from our side or follow up our decision, but didn't. We must say 500EUR is not little amount, they should wait or follow up our confirmation. Fourth, they sent the wet carpet photo with no proof of date and time and say that our clients did. But how could we know if the staff watered on the carpet and made up as if our clients did. Thus, we assume they have no sincerity. Fifth, the deduction amount they had done to our company was too much, it was 500EUR which is more than 4rooms rate even though this issue happened only in one room in a small area and we stayed only one night. We must say this is too much. (They mention that this large amount was cut because the room could not rent the room for several days. Is it possible? We know the carpet can be dried shortly within a day if they use carpet dryer. This solution is our limited knowledge. We believe that for the developed country like Germany and international brand hotel like Best Western will have better solution to dry the wet carpet within an hour or short period. The point is the amount they had cut down was totally unreasonable. Sixth, the team leader of the room division [Sebastian Buresch, Teamleiter Rooms Division,Tel.: 0214/ 383-380, +492143830, (hidden)] (who must be responsible of this card deduction) avoid our phone calls ( whenever we called they say he is at the meeting, we called 4days continuously) and when we sent the complaint email about this matter, he doesn't care and failed to reply our mail (we follow up this complaint every day via phone and mails). He replied twice (also this reply is made due to continuous phone calls) and both time he keep telling he sent the mail about this matter (but as I said above, the mail he sent was not used in reservation process and had never been mentioned before). Instead of giving solution, he just say what he did. Seventh, we sent the complaint letter formally and informally, but they didn't take any prompt nor slow action. We had to call for 3 or 4 days and followed up mails to get their solution. When, the reply is received it is not satisfactory and unreasonable and no solution is given. Thus, we are totally unhappy about the Best Western Leoso Hotel Leverkusen (Cologne, Germany)'s way of solving this issue. As we are travel agent, we had used Best Western Hotel Brand in Several Countries but had never had this sort of issue and had never worked with this unreliable partner. We hope you would give the best solution for this matter.

I will never stay at another Best Western Plus.I had made reservations in March for June.The property said you can email for special instructions.Not only did I email,I called the property every month and asked about checking in at 1 instead of 3.On the day of arrival,I talked to the receptionist and a manager on duty about the early check in time,they both were rude and ran my debit card at 12noon and when it declined they cancelled my room and never called me

I had lost my original debit card and had gotten a new one between the reservation and arrival date.I will be posting the treatment on Facebook so they whole world can see how your employees treat customers.

My family and I (7 of us) were traveling from Pennsylvania to Florida on June 1st. We had previously made hotel reservations at another hotel chain in Columbia S.C. and upon our arrival there we had a horrible experience which ranged from no linens on the bed to being given an occupied room and walking in on people! We promptly left that hotel and my husband decided to try and drive the rest of the way to Florida. A few hours later we were just so exhausted and cramped that we needed a room. We stopped for gas and saw a nearby Best Western. We decided to try and see if they had 2 rooms for an affordable price and thankfully they did. This was in Walterboro, SC. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Every staff member we saw greeted us with a smile. The next morning we went down for breakfast. Let me tell you that they have a gem named Joann working the breakfast area and she is amazing!!! We were also very happy to see that they had a sign stating there were gluten free options available as we have 2 children with Celiac disease. She said she would make them whatever they wanted. When we checked out the gentleman was so pleasant (maybe his name was Brian, not sure). What started out as an awful night turned into something better. We got our needed rest, some food in our bellies and then we were off to finish our drive. I can't say how much this meant to us. Thanks so much to the Best Western on Sniders Highway in Walterboro, SC.

Recent stay at Best Western Plus at 601 Dingens St in Buffalo New York. We stayed for 5 days and on two days the room was not cleaned at all. I had to go the front desk ( after being out of the room all day) and get towels and toilet paper. I tried to reach the owner( Mr.Patel?) or a manager during my stay to lodge complaint. I was given Manager's ( Dakota Ashton) email and number. I left Several messages on Mr. Ashton's cell number and called the front desk several times trying to reach him or Mr.Patel. He never bothered to respond to my messages. When I , was finally able to reach Mr. Ashton, several days after I checked out, he was EXTREMELY RUDE AND UNPROFESSIONAL. He actually stated some garbage about it being lndustry standard not to clean rooms nightly. And that since I booked on line through Expedia at a discounted rate, there would absolutely be no credit given for the lack service. Mr. Ashton then hung up on me when I tried to call again he just kept disconnecting the call. This was a innapropriate and juvenile response. I think Best Western Corporate should be aware of the inadequacy of the front line people representing their corporate image.

Best Western 2445 North Frontage RD Vicksburg MS, we checked this evening, Sunday, June 10, and I was excited to see that our room was adjacent from the indoor pool. I could not get into the door with my key card and was told by another patron that the front desk clerk locked all entry doors and you had to walk thru the front office to get in the pool. I approached the front desk and she stated it was for her safety and would not unlock them. This is a concern due to a fire hazard. If the front office caught fire, we would be locked in the pool area and could not get out. Now I do not want to swim for to this safety Hazard! Very unsafe! I wanted to go back in the front office and tell her that if this was a concern she should not work here. Not worth it!

We recently stay in our hometown Alexandria, LA. We have traveled all over the country; including Hawaii, but at this Best Western was the most horrible experience!

We have our high school reunions there! Also a few years ago, I gave my husband his 66 birthday in a suite; during my 45th reunion! My husband had his 50th year reunion there two years ago!

Also my family has had our reunions there for years; but because of the substandard quality and the below-average service, we are moving our reunion to another hotel! At our family reunions there is usually about 500 people!

During breakfast on Sunday, the Atrium area was filthy! I asked the lady who was working there to please clean it up! She murmured and walked away!

The counter where the waffle machine was placed was completely nasty! Once again, she walked over and looked at it and walked away! Additionally it was 9:35 and breakfast was until 10:00! There was no waffle mix in the waffle canister! I made her aware of it but she didn't say anything! Another guest asked her and she told her that she needed to get the cook to make some more! Once the cook came out, she told him not to make too much! It was only 9:35!

Because the breakfast area in the Atrium was nasty and dirty, we had to buy our breakfast for the remainder of our trip! Floors were not swept, tables dirty and Waffle tables dirty and nasty!

To substantiate my review and criticism, I am attaching pictures!

Also the ice machine across from our room 145 was not working! However, when I called the front desk, the clerk didn't even know there was a ice machine there! She told me she would have the maintenance man check it out! He never came! I later found out that there was another ice machine around the corner from our room! Additionally, our was never cleaned for the entire stay of 4-days!

Also the outside doors which led to courtyards were broken! The maintenance man finally fixed it on Sunday night!

I would like to make a complaint annonymously regarding an employee. Who do I contact? This is in response to issues of hostility at the location in Long Beach on Pacific Coast Highway. The perpetrator is a male hispanic, standing about 6'1", dark brown hair, looks to be between the ages of 35-45. He glares at people, gossips, and is generally toxic. If there is a better way to address this issue, I would like to be informed.
