I have been here many times as my daughter attends Texas State University. The rooms are always clean and I find the bed comfortable. The staff that wait on you are always friendly. The breakfast has the typical food (cereal, toast, bagels, self-made waffles, eggs, and meat). It's right off the interstate for easy access and next to a good... More

Dear Janet79720, Thank you for taking time to write review on your recent stay. Your voice is extremely important for us to know how we are doing.

The room was clean and the staff pleasant and helpful. Price was reasonable and the bed was great - not too soft or too firm, just right. Breakfast was your typical hotel hot & cold food items. The pool was hot, but it was to be expected (South Texas in August - everything's hot). Printer didn't work for me the... More

Hotel is right off I-35 and is close to the Tanger Outlet Malls and several restaurants. Our room was comfortable and the staff were very friendly. Price was just right for the quality, service, and location. Would definitely stay here again!

Stayed at the beginning of July, most hotels were filled up being that it was a weekend, wanted one bed, settled for two but overall stay was nice. Quiet and clean rooms. Staff was friendly and got us in quick

There is not much to say about this hotel. I went with the Best Western name. It was easily accessible to the highway. The hotel was clean. The bed was okay, not the usual super comfortable one that Best Western usually has. Breakfast was the usual and nicely presented.

Arrived to a very friendly staff, however, the room was dated and had a funny smell. One of the pillow cases had stains on it. Bed was comfortable, but the noise from the air-conditioner clicking on and off all night kept me awake. I also had a room that faced the highway, so the traffic noise was bad as well.... More

Not a great place but the beds are comfy. There was a roach in the tub and the rug had a big stain in front of the TV. This place is not worth over $100 a night, as a matter of fact, not even over $80!

I recently stayed here for a week. I normally do not stay at the Best Western but the choices were limited and the price was good so I went ahead and did it. I usually do a little test at any hotel to see how well the housekeeping is and this one definitely failed. I put the ice bucket lid... More

Rooms was clean, well maintained and although slightly dated we were happily comfortable during our stay. Internet WiFi and TV worked well. Air conditioning kept room comfortable, quiet enough to allow sleep when cycling on and off and was easy to adjust. The bed was adequately comfortable, linens were clean and un-worn. The bathroom was clean and well maintained. Staff... More

Nice affordable stay. Beds were very comfortable, rooms were clean. Staff was very polite and helpful. The breakfast was pretty good - waffles, fruit, cereals, eggs (tasted better than they looked) and various breads. Better than some of the other hotels we have stayed with in the area. Would recommend.
