One free night at a Best Western after three stays is a promotion to keep in mind over the next two months. This promotion is available for hotels in the USA, Canada and Caribbean and the free night voucher is valid for any hotel in these same regions. There is a limit of one free night per Best Western Rewards member.
Best Western Rewards Spring Promotion 2013 registration is required. Members can earn 10 points/$1 for paid hotel stays points or choose to earn double miles with either Aeroplan or Air Miles.
The primary drawback to this offer is the short validity of the free night voucher. The free night voucher must be redeemed by June 30, 2013.

Loyalty Traveler Analysis
I see this promotion as an opportunity to pick up three cheap stays in places for about $250 or even less. There are many Best Western hotels where the free night voucher will have a $250+ value. Getting four hotel nights for $250 is a good promotional value.
Best Western Premier hotels are the obvious places to redeem a free night. These are the top tier hotels in the Best Western brand.
Two properties that came to my mind for redeeming an award are the Best Western Premier Ivy Hotel Napa and the San Francisco Best Western Premier Tuscan Inn at Fisherman’s Wharf (a hotel managed by Kimpton Hotels).
Sample date rate checks for Friday night, June 14, 2013:
- Ivy Hotel Napa = $269
- Tuscan Inn at Fisherman’s Wharf = $359
The main point I am trying to emphasize is earning the free night voucher can be an opportunity for booking three cheap hotel nights on three separate stays before April 14 and earning a high value certificate.
Here are some sample midweek rates for Best Western hotels around Monterey Bay, California for next week on Tuesday, February 26. These are winter weekend destinations with higher rates on Friday and Saturday nights.
- Best Western Beach Dunes Inn, Marina, California = $59.99
- Best Western Park Crest Inn, Monterey = $58.49 (AAA)
- Best Western Plus Carmel Bay View Inn, Carmel = $89.10 (AAA)
- Best Western Carmel’s Town House Lodge, Carmel = $89.10 (AAA)
- Best Western Plus Capitola-by-the-Sea Inn & Suites = $89.99 (AAA)
- Best Western Plus Seacliff Inn, Aptos = $89.99 (AAA)
- Best Western Plus All Suites Inn, Santa Cruz = $90 (AAA).
Most of these hotels will be more than double these rates by June.
These hotels are all located in beach towns and the rates are low season for winter weekday nights. These midweek off-season rates are lower than hotels in many less popular destinations around the USA.
I thought I might use the Best Western promotion in Denver this week to earn a free night voucher since there were Best Western hotels in the $65 to $75 range when properties like Hilton Garden Inn and Marriott Courtyard were around $150. Then I ended up finding Best Rate Guarantee claims with Marriott and InterContinental Hotels Group and went that direction instead.
This free night promotion is a good incentive to compare Best Western rates for places you might be visiting.
And earn a free night for a hotel in some other place you might be visiting.
