The Search for Best Western Friends and Family Rates and the current Best Western promotions

What are Best Western Friends and Family Rates?

Best Western Friends and Family Rates do exist, as benefits for working for this chain include employee hotel discounts as well as ones for relatives and friends:

Unfortunately for those who don’t have any contacts in this hotel chain, they tend to remain very hidden from the masses. It could be because Best Western is a franchisor, with each hotel allowed to keep its independent identity, so it would make sense that there isn’t a generic code to use across the board. If there is one, it must be one well-kept secret, as we couldn’t find it anywhere!

We asked Best Western, who said you would need to ask the hotel employee to give you the promotional code or booking link.

How much can I save with Best Western Friends and Family Rates?

The discount amount is likely to vary depending on the individual property and availability; there’s probably no set reduction. An employee at a Best Western in California’s Sacramento stated that rooms are as cheap as $35, while a staff member in Brazil, Indiana, stated that employee rates were only reduced from $99.99 to $74.99 (and hotel chain friends and family discounts tend to be more expensive than employee ones). It does seem that YMMV per hotel.

It’s noteworthy that a Best Western employee recently stated on Glassdoor that while an employee discount is reasonable, not all properties do give one, and when they do, the process can be a little difficult:

What else do I need to know about Best Western Friends and Family Rates?

The Friends and Family discount is said to be immediately available once someone is employed with Best Western. Employees of this hotel chain often rate the benefit of discounted rooms to be the best perk of the job, though popular properties can get booked up well in advance.
