The lovely landscaping around the hotel with lawns, palm trees and a water feature create a very attractive first impression on arrival. Falcon Lake has greatly receded from its previous shoreline, nevertheless the hotel is quite near enough the lake for wonderful countryside walks and exploring the lake shore. Just south of Zapata on H83, our 3 night stay was... More

Hotel was nice and staff were accomodating, but there were people outside my room making a racket at 3 in the morning. They were drinking and very loud. It woke up me and my son. The hotel staff did handle the problem after I complained.

The hotel staff was nice and the rooms were comfortable and clean, though a bit outdated with decor. I was there for business, so that did not matter. The continental breakfast was pretty good. Best Western Prides itself on offering great internet, but this hotel unfortunately has had internet problems the entire time I stayed there. I realize this is... More

The hotel is ok at best, however there is not much more offered in Zapata. The Holiday Inn Express down the road had DHS and ICE agents busting down doors all night, so this was a better option. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, but the internet is not good. I was here on business and was unable... More

I took a birding group of 12 and we had great service with good amenities, evening snacks and drinks, and a full breakfast, all for a very reasonable price. 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
