The stay was wonderful everything was perfect except, the lake was a little far away. The service was great, asked for more towels didn't have a problem. The pool was good, also. The hotel in general was very good, would recommend.

The accommodations were excellent and the rooms very clean and surprisingly quiet. The staff was most helpful and they worked really well with me to get all the rooms setup and... More

I have been staying at the Best Western by the Lake in Zapata, Texas twice a year for the last 3 years. The staff understands that they are in the "people business" first and the hotel business second. The staff is friendly, efficient, accommodating and have very good people skills and this stimulates peoples desire to return to their motel.... More

#1 Bass fishing spot in the US and there is very little parking for boats during a big tournament event. The room was clean. The staff works at the own slow pace at the front desk.
