Best Western Discovery Inn

Best Western Discovery Inn building and parking lot view

Date of Visit: June 19-20, 2024

I booked a Mobility Accessible room with 2 Queen beds and tub. Upon check in they did make it clear that the room was in the pet section and offered to move us when we said we did not have pet, but as it was the only accessible room left we preferred to stick with it. The hotel did end up pretty full that night and the only time we even noticed we were in the pet section was when leaving in the morning and two dogs briefly barked at each other when they met in the hall.

3 cookies

We all enjoyed the cookies we got at check in.

Desert view and Interstate

The room was located on the back side of the building which was near the Interstate, but was still quiet.

View of room with 2 queen beds and tile

Mik loved that the room was tile throughout.

Table and Chairs

We moved the table and chairs into the corner and piled our stuff in the area right where we came in and Mik still had plenty space in the front of the room to hang out on the floor as he likes.

TV Stand

It was the smaller style mini fridge. Mik liked that the microwave was low. The power for charging stuff in the TV stand was helpful.

Closet to right in bathroom

The closet area was in the bathroom.

Toilet by tub with grab bars

Mik couldn’t get on toilet himself with the grab bars, but it seems rarer and rarer he is able to do that in new situations. This design so close to wall and tub, I imagine is probably not the best for many others either.

Tub with grab bars and mounted toiletries

The tub had a bench leaning against wall. This was the first time I had stayed at a Best Western that had switched to the on wall toiletries. While we did not end up using the shower, these are the squeeze style and I have found these hard to use at other places and the high height probably makes them even harder if you cannot stand. At least the shower wand head was left low, though, as so many times we have noticed it is put up on a bracket up high.

Threshold out

The threshold on the way out of the room was a little high.

Breakfast menu

The breakfast here was one of the best we’ve had a Best Western. They had a lot of variety including yogurt, fresh fruit (bananas as well as fresh fruit like watermelon cut up in cups to grab from the fridge), Uncrustables, biscuits, eggs, sausage, and oatmeal.

Overall we really enjoyed the Best Western Discovery Inn. If Mik had not decided he wanted to go straight home and skip the Petrified Forest National Park, we would have stayed her a night on the way home, too.
