Best Western Hotels International, Inc. Informative - Do not use bestwestern.com to book hotels
ERIE, PENNSYLVANIA -- I have learned, by Best Western's own admission, that the rates quoted on the company's website can be superceded by the individual properties. I booked a non-cancellable rez, only to arrive at the hotel to find rates for 30% less. BW customer service said, "sorry, beyond our control." Advice: Use website to locate properties but NOT to book. Contact the hotel directly.
I understand this is not uncommon in the industry, but this was an exteme example.
