My wife and I were visiting the Zapata TX area to see the amenities of the communities near Falcon Lake and the fishing potential in the area. We have preferred cards with two other national hotel/motel chains; however, neither were available in the Zapata TX area. Chose the Best Western and were very pleasantly surprised. The room was very large,... More

Rarities always draw birders to this area of the Rio Grande Valley. A motel that I have used over the years is the Best Western Inn by the Lake, Zapata. It has served me well over the years and is convenient.

Hotel would be excellent if they fix the problems with plumbing. All we got was extremely hot water at night in the bathtub and in the morning in the sink. It is an accident waiting to happen. Someone could get scalded with the hot water.

I stay here every time I visit the Zapata area. I am there for business and so it's important that I get a good night sleep. The rooms are clean and comfortable.

This small bungalow type of BW property is spread out and and nostalgic unlike the the stacked properties of the modern hotel.Very quaint and yet open feeling dominates this location. Overall the property is in good shape physically with few signs of the real age of the buildings. Rooms are spacious and well furnished with a comfortable bed, and all... More

This trip was so relaxing. Your environment is extremely accommodating for each one of us. We saw the breakfast room atrium and looked forward to the next day. It met and surpassed our expectation. Love Best Western in Zapata. Look forward to more fishing trips with the entire family!

The room was clean and comfortable. The price was a fair price for the room. The free breakfast was marginal but is typical for these type motels. I would stay there again on my next trip to the area.
