Friendly, decent hotel

Stayed for a wedding nearby. Good prices, and very comfortable. My only nock on the place was that the internet was a little slow, and the toilet was mounted too close to the bathroom wall. You kind of had to lean on it. Recommended, though.
Hotel needs a complete redo

The room itself was pretty clean otherwise this would be a one-star review. Broken wifi that the staff could not fix "Sorry, this town has really slow internet service" - WRONG. Your WiFi was just plain broken. Broken WiFi that no one has a clue about how to fix is a cardinal sin. To top it off my cell service was very spotty in this area (not their fault) so I was SOL. I had to go down to the local WalMart to scam off their GREAT WiFi (so much for "The town has slow internet"!). Don't expect to be cheered up by a decent breakfast in the morning. They had a pot of regular coffee, a pot of decaf coffee, a dispenser for apple and orange juice, a few packs of instant oatmeal and a half of a loaf of Wonder Bread tossed on the toaster. I kid you not! Looked like someone just brought the half loaf they had at home and threw it in the break room. Do not stay here!!
Great place to stay

This hotel was clean and the atmosphere was pleasant! The employees were very kind and attentive to all my needs during my stay. I am a traveling Nurse and plan to stay at the Best Western in Chester Illinois for the entire time I am contracted to work in that area. Great place!
Nice hotel, no elevator, no hot breakfast

The front doors, 2 sets, are not automatic however there is an ADA wheelchair button to press to open them. 2 levels with no elevator. Room 211. Upstairs. Spacious room. Very comfortable with an easy chair and ottoman. Very clean. I would have given the hotel an excellent rating however not offering a hot breakfast is just ridiculous. A bottle of water, a granola bar, and a danish. Coffee and orange/apple juice is available. Carlyle Investments and/or the property manager needs to return the breakfast to normalcy. Your state has reopened to 100% restaurant capacity. It is an attempt to either be cheap or to continue to ride the COVID-19 train. It is the only hotel in Chester. .There are several towns nearby with chain hotels. If we are in the area again, we will stay in one of those unless hot breakfast is offered here.

The breakfast was severely lacking as compared to the Best Western I stayed at in Indiana in April. They had hot food (eggs & meat) available and items to microwave as well as cereal, yogurt and oatmeal and fresh, hot coffee. In Whittington, days before we arrived at your location, they served yogurt, oatmeal and cereal with real milk out of a jug and freshly made coffee. They also had sweet rolls and fruit. In Chester, it was a bag with three types of granola bars. That’s a disappointment. I’m not a TV watcher, but my husband is. Both times he turned it on, it was channel after channel of a snowy screen. He called the front desk each time and someone came up. The first time, the woman just kept looking for channels and found a couple. The second day, another woman had to run a download in order to reprogram the TV. She was really trying and explained you’ve gone to a different service. We left to grab dinner and my husband had to do the same thing when he turned it on again. You might want to think of returning to your prior cable provider. The “flowers” in the pots nearest to the road at your location that should be a welcome to guests are a tattered, disintegrating site to see. Those nearest the hotel entrance are faded and showing their age, too. Please show some pride in your property and make some improvements. No discount for meals at Reid’s Harvest House anymore. Pool remains closed for a second year while plenty of pools across the country are open. If the service doesn’t improve, you need to lower your rates significantly. I do not feel we got our money’s worth. My cousins said they will likely not stay there again. We had all used your hotel in Chester for years. Now we may not.
