The hotel staff was excellent and good breakfast. The beds were the worst I have ever tried to sleep in.

Staff was ok. We paid $125/night/room and not worth to spend that much money to this hotel. It’s $50/night room hotel. Breakfast was not that good. Probably I would have booked other room around $50 would have saved me lot of money.

Perhaps the worst hotel/motel stay I've had ever.

Pros: Location
Cons: Overhaul and staff training to appreciate customers. Update rooms. Advise of second floor conditions regarding no elevators.
Location: Waffle House and some shopping nearby. Cracker barrel close.
Two story hotel, no elevator, no bell staff no warning that this might be the case. Poor parking Ambivalent staff Except for Marilyn and Anna housekeeping maids that saw two 70+ women struggling to get our belongings down the stairs as we were leaving. Price was ok but not considering the stairs and struggles to get to the room. Very disappointing visit. Location was OK

Old facilities , crowded breakfast room, rude man

I would not stay there again. The building is very old and the water out of the sink has a bad smell. The beds and pillows are uncomfortable. The breakfast room is too small, it gets very crowded . We made our reservation in Jan 2016 a looking for a pet friendly hotel for our 4 lbs chihuahua. During our stay a male employee came up to us to say that they were recently changing to non pet friendly and it was very unpleasant.

Almost better than home!!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
Easy to find with lots of nearby things to do. Friendly staff. Large "chilled" rooms in summer heat. Very comfortable bed! (Rooms have a slight lingering odor of cig smoke but not terribly unpleasant.) Bountiful breakfast buffet! Would definitely return and recommend!

Great place to stay

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: Poor breakfast
I have stayed frequently at this hotel. The room is comfortable and staff is friendly. Unlike most hotels that you can hear individual's in the next room, the rooms are very quiet.

Best experience in years for overnight stay while on road.

This inn was beautifully decorated and immaculate. The front desk people were friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Best Western Parkside Inn for anyone traveling. We arrived late so weren't able to use the pool, but the indoor/outdoor pool certainly looked inviting.

reservation not honored

I made the reservation directly with the motel. I made it quite clear that we needed a room that was both non-smoking and had handicapped access. When we arrived I asked to see the room to verify that the room actually met our needs for handicapped access. I could see that was the case immediately and didn?t notice that the room was provided with three ashtrays and matches. When I brought my wife into the room in her wheelchair, she immediately smelled cigarette smoke. After much discussion with the two staff members at the desk, I verified that the room was ?smoking? and our confirmed reservation was non-smoking. One of the staff claimed that the computer assigns people to rooms and sometimes overrides reservation information. We did not manage to get to sleep until after 3 AM and I woke up very congested at 6 AM with loud noises that were probably from unloading a truck just outside our room. I could not go back to sleep. I went to the desk and got the assistant manager to check on the information provided the previous night. Se said that the staff member had lied to me concerning ?computer reassignment? and the staff member that made that claim was the exact person who gave our reserved room to another party. Upon checkout, I spoke too the same two persons that checked us in the night before and one said that if we had made a medical claim, such as ashma, when making the reservation, they would have taken our request for a non-smoking room seriously. So far I have not gotten any statement from Best Western management, as I requested repeatedly each time I conversed with this motel?s staff, that the staff had followed the motel?s policy for holding reservation.
