"Chris and I had an amazing time on the wedding day! It was such a great day, better than we both expected. All those little decisions along the way turned into such a beautiful experience.

We so appreciate all of your hard work and help navigating this planning experience. And in the end we got to have a beautiful day and create amazing memories despite the current pandemic.

Thank you to yourself and Hope, Tracy, etc. for making the day run so smooth. We are still getting feedback from guests who had a fabulous time and praised the staff for a wonderful evening. Thank you again."

"As I slowly put together my wedding I have been repeatedly reminded of the Longbranch, and its sales manager’s, fantastic reputation among local vendors. When I tell vendors that my reception is at the Longbranch, they typically respond with a “Oh that is such a beautiful place” and “The staff there are phenomenal, Tami is so professional and sweet.”

During my phone interview with Julie Ann Cakes, Julie Ann even went as far as telling me that her son’s Longbranch reception could not have been more beautiful or the food more delicious. What makes their comments all the more remarkable is that I never solicit them. Instead, the minute I reveal the location of my reception they practically gush over the lovely facility and devoted staff. Their profound respect has reaffirmed my decision that the Longbranch is the perfect venue for my wedding reception. I look forward to working with you over next year.

Just thought I should share the good news!"

"We were looking for a nice but affordable place for our wedding reception. As our families are both out of state, we also wanted a venue at a hotel to make things a bit easier for everyone. It was close between The Longbranch and the Marriott..but I knew the Longbranch style/design would fit our needs better, and my groom-to-be trusted me. Not only did the ballroom turn out perfectly, the food tasted delicious, but the staff was so incredibly knowledgable, nice, helpful, and caring as well!
I think this place gets overlooked sometimes because it's kind of in a random spot, and honestly (no offense!) the front of the restaurant is a little hokey. But don't let that fool you!!! Take the time to go inside, meet the staff, check out the rooms, It was all beautiful!

Also, we sprang for the Honeymoon Suite, and it was fantastic! All my bridesmaids were jealous :)" ....

"We had a ball. Our son's wedding reception was held here and it was beautiful. Thanks to all the Bartenders, waitresses, servers, and hotel personnel who made our stay here WONDERFUL. We would do it all over again. And, it was affordable! Thanks Best Western Plus for making our Son's wedding so memorable."

"Where do we begin!? Tami, Dan, all the staff at The Best Western Long Branch made our wedding weekend such a blast & a weekend we will never forget! From the moment we booked The Long Branch back in August '12 we have been more than pleased with the staff & service! They were very accommodating, & always willing to offer suggestions. We had our rehearsal dinner & our wedding reception in the ballroom & the food was amazing; we had so many compliments both nights! Tami was so wonderful to work with & were so thankful she was there every step of the way! We stayed the night in the honeymoon suite, and words can't express how amazing it was.

I would highly recommend The Best Western Long Branch, incredible food & amazing service! It was a pleasure working with you all! Thanks again, The Kruse's" ....

"I was there for a wedding reception. The staff was always polite and helpful. We ate in Kitty's and was impressed with the food for the price. Late one night we had appetizers at the bar and the service and food was again great in both departments. This place remembers what service is suppose to be. Highly recommend to everyone."
