    by Azirishman

    Running on an iPad 2 that has been upgraded to iOS issues. GREAT job best Western!

  • Great app.

    by Gus NJ

    Excellent functionality and visually appealing. Has every feature that you find on the full site, plus the added feature of Tripit. Well worth using.

  • Quick & Easy

    by SacramentoSpurs

    Great to use, easy to glad it's here :)

  • Handy for the constant traveler

    by no one better have this name

    Out of town most of the year. Best Western has treated me well and their app makes for easier reservations and monitoring my rewards. Very handy.

  • Cool app

    by Rhapsody4569

    Fantastic!!!! Soooo much better than the old app. Easy to find nearest hotel and compare nearby hotels.

  • Easy to use

    by bombananza

    Nice app get me info on my reward points quickly and I can make reservations in a flash.

  • Where's the map

    by Xmyz123

    The old version was better when planning stops, you could scroll the map and see the motel location as you scrolled. Now you have to type in town and state and see only very localized motel selection.

  • I don't like it

    by KM13864

    This app is impossible to work with. It keeps finding the wrong city when I type the city name in the slot. Then when I get nearly through the process of reserving a room, it kicks me out of the app. If the Best Western wasn't the only good motel in the town I need to stay, I would not be staying there.

  • FAIL!

    by DDDave1

    Instant crash on opening w iOS 7. Don't upgrade to 3.2!!

  • Best Western To Go

    by Mrs McElwain

    Excellent app. Very helpful when on road trips. When at last minute trips happen, it's great to be able to pull up the app and book a stay. Knowing we are going to be safe and refreshed from our stay.

  • Hotel

    by Barcelona 2222

    The best App hotel

  • Good app

    by Msblondthick

    I love it

  • I can't recommend it

    by MadhuriS

    I tried searching hotels in cities where I know there are Best Westerns. The result was nearby cities. This happened more than once. I'm sorry BW, I can't give you a good recommendation.

  • travelers

    by Jim & Laura

    Please put the "map" option back on the site where the Best Westerns automatically pop up along the route you drive. It was very helpful.

  • How do I log in to rewards account

    by physicsisgroovy

    No easy way to login

  • Great hotel

    by Talonokc

    by Ashybabh

  • Be app

    by nia2quin

    Useful for what I needed, app is ok

  • It's almost here???

    by Jimboya13

    You've been saying that since the update that ruined it for the iPad! Are you really going to update it for the iPad, or should we just delete it. I really liked it before the update, please stop saying you are working on the new version for iPad, and finish it!!!

  • Best Western reservations

    by JustAThought01

    If reservation is non-refundable, app forgets user input (rewards number, credit card, etc.) and does not complete reservation. Apps should never destroy user inputted data.

  • Mobile App saved my vacation!

    by Wallylama68

    Made reservations with another hotel chain. 1 night was all it took for me to cancel ALL my reservations with them. Downloaded the BW app and booked the rest of my trip with Best Western! Vacation SAVED!

  • Quick and easy

    by Willygrids

    Found my hotel room, booked and paid within a few minutes

  • Great experience

    by CTbuzzing

    Fast, intuitive, and can quickly find the closest hotel. Can't wait until the iPad version comes out

  • Great new features

    by Amerza

    I've been using this app to plan our honeymoon trip across the US. Easy to use, more intuitive navigation, new ways to search for hotels... Overall, a better app then others I have seen.

  • V. P.

    by WoOsMe

    Thought this app was great. Makes navigating so much easier.

  • Easy to use!

    by Hillecam

    This app has such a clean format, it's super easy to use to find a Best Western hotel, and I love the design.

  • Does not work

    by Twozips

    Have not been able to use this app since I installed it. Keeps telling me that it will be fixed soon. How soon, is the question!

  • Seems to work nicely!

    by Victory rider 106

    Seems to work nicely,... I just downloaded it to my iPhone 4 and it went right to work! I didn't have to spend a lot of time figuring it out! Unfortunately, i downloaded it after i had made my reservation so i missed out on 1,000 points.

  • Travlin' Man

    by HogFan1010

    Love it!

  • Stupid design...

    by Bender41

    After telling me that I needed to register, I filled out the irritating nonsense, then after repeatedly refusing to take my info, tells me my email address is already taken & I must choose another. Duh!

  • Awesome

    by Jasonbranum

    Love the BW brand. Easy and simple to use.

  • From a Best Western Rewards Member

    by TravelRat2012

    Please note that this review does NOT reflect on the hotel properties itself. Only reviews the IPad app. I agree with other reviewers that if the iPad app does not work, then they should remove the option to download the "ipad version" from the iTunes website until it is ready. Showing the option to download only gathers more negative reviews. When this app is activated, the page states that the "App in under construction" and directs you to the website. But rotation to landscape is disabled thus making it awkward to use with an iPad on a desktop. Most iPad covers are made as a landscape position stand. I am left with making my reservation using web browsing software.

  • Does what it needs to do

    by NancyMN

    I have had good experiences with this app. Easy to check hotels, make reservations, and check my account - including signing up for promotions.

  • Fishsae

    by Fishsae

    Works good. Just hate that you have to sign in every time. Other hotel apps don't require that one sign in and it remembers me.

  • Not the easiest to use.

    by Tlc10972

    This app isn't easy or useable.
