Best Western Hotels & Resorts debuted four hotels, all reflags, over the past month.  Located in West Virginia, Illinois, Missouri and Nevada, the debuts involved the company’s SureStay Plus, SureStay and Best Western Plus brands.

The 61-room SureStay Plus Hotel by Best Western Keyser (W.Va.) opened last week. Converted from a Microtel, it includes a 24-hour fitness center, meeting space for up to 20 people and an outdoor open-air gazebo. Messenger Hospitality owns the property and Millennium Hospitality manages it. Nearby attractions include Dans Mountain Park, Smoke Hole Caverns and the Polish Pines and Fore Sisters golf courses.

In Greenville, Ill., an Econo Lodge Inn & Suites reopened as the SureStay Hotel by Best Western Greenville June 5. Owned and operated by Amrish Patel, the hotel includes 77 guestrooms, an onsite restaurant and bar and an indoor pool and hot tub. The hotel is located less than an hour northeast of St. Louis and is a short drive from Greenville University, Carlyle Lake and the American Farm Heritage Museum.
