Local Richland Hotel Offers Discounted Rooms During Heatwave
Hotel rooms get a discount of up to 30% and you also get access to air conditioning and a swimming pool.
RICHLAND, Washing. – To help keep you cool in the heat, a local hotel is offering 30% off the normal room rate and the promise of a pool and air conditioning.
Best Western Plus in Richland began discounted rates Monday at the start of the heatwave.
A king bed costs around $ 99 after tax, and two beds in a room will cost around $ 103.
In just a few days, employees said the hotel was almost 96% full.
“The phones keep ringing, it’s crazy,” said receptionist Alexandra Scott. “It’s so hot the doors are closed and you can just smell it inside. “
Scott said it felt good to be able to help families in need.
“This dad came in earlier and he was like, ‘I just need a place for me, my daughter and my wife,’” Scott said. “It has been nice to help people, especially those who really need it.
Scott added that the hotel is considered essential, so it is free from blackouts.
“Even being able to lounge by the pool and swim and not have to worry about being in such a hot place is really nice,” Scott said.
The Best Western Plus is located at 1515 George Washington Way. To reserve a room, call (509) 946-4121.
