    We had our wedding reception at the Best Western. The food was delicious! We had so many guests (even guests that are chefs) tell us how good they thought the food was. We had hot and cold appetizers and a buffet dinner. We did get chair covers because we did not like the looks of the chairs and we also had our dj bring in colored uplighting that really changed the mood of the room. Communication with the Best Western was always quick and helpful. Save your money and have your wedding at the Best Western!

    From the very first meeting with Sage, we knew we chose the right venue for our New Year's Eve wedding. She answered all my questions and helped us through the planning and menu options. We were able to choose the menu options we wanted and keep to our budget. We chose this venue as the location for our ceremony and reception as we didn't want our guests to have to drive in the winter and on New Year's Eve. Many of our guests booked rooms and stayed overnight which was great. We had our ceremony in the Gazebo banquet room and the only downside of that is the curtains in there are see through, which can be distracting. We chose to put up a secondary curtain as a backdrop to keep the focus in the room. Dylan and his staff were so helpful in lighting our ceremony aisle candles and ensuring everything happened on time and without issues. The reception we had in the larger banquet rooms and it was just the right size for everything. Ralph and Dylan again were amazing and so very helpful. We really felt at home and the staff were so accommodating with all our last minutes requests. The food was perfect! Everything was delivered on time, warm, and very tasty. We brought in our cake from a local baker but the venue staff was on hand at the right time to cut the pieces, serve, and box up the extras. I also like that they didn't rush us out at the end of the event and we were able to clean up the next morning. I'm very happy with our experience at the Best Western Plus and would definitely recommend considering it for any type of event.
