“Nice Hotel, Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

The hotel is currently remodeling, so there was a bit of a mess in the halls, due to people painting. The rooms were nice, beds comfortable, the room had a coffee maker, microwave, and mini fridge. Overall stay was great, will stay at this hotel again. There was also a pool, unfortunately it was raining so we weren't able to use the pool this time.

A friend and I spent several days driving and sightseeing through the Southwest. This hotel was a pleasant surprise. The décor was outstanding and certainly was not cookie cutter. I have stayed at many Best Western hotels over the years, as I am a rewards member. The experiences ranged from mediocre to excellent. This hotel was above excellent.

I stayed at this hotel maybe 3 years ago , I don't think they had changed anything till now . New TV's and beds don't make you a 5 star hotel , that's just part of updates .Whoever the contractor is should know to change the carpet before replacing the bed and furniture , the carpet was filthy and had holes where they had tried to patch it . The lobby now has a " Water Wall " and a leather S shaped sofa , big deal !! All of the top hotel chains now have , flat screen TV's , Hi speed internet , pillow top beds ( if you could call it that ) and a free breakfast . You can't charge $139 a night till you finish the job , and that's $50 over priced for that town and hotel . Amarillo has nothing to offer other than " The Big Texan Steak House " , they have great onsite brewed beer now . This is just a crossroad in the top of Texas , nothing more . I've stayed at much better places for less and gotten more value . There are plenty of other hotels in town to stay at !!

Just staying on return trip. It would be nice if beds could be a little bigger in size and give a little room not so close to a wall for one individual to get out. Guess they do raise the rates when renovating to make up for the cost. Pass it on to the consumer. It was a little more than I paid in some other for a senior rate. Overall breakfast was very good. Some of the warmers didn't keep the food real hot that you would need a microwave to warm it up. It would have been better to have one of the regular waffle makers.

Dear Nancy,

Thank you for taking the time to send us your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that you were not completely satisfied with the stay. The waffle maker is actually the next thing on our renovation list. I truly hope you come back in a few months to stay with us after our renovation is complete. If there is anything I can do to further assist you please give me a call!

The room clean, they keep it clean..but the smell makes it feel dirty!The room is old and well used! Everything you touch, has a coating on it! Dog urine,it horrible!
Along with the bed, I'd be better sleeping on the floor. Waking up with a sore back, is going to make it a long day!!

Room Tip: Check the room before you stay here!

I live in rural France, where there is often absolute silence from a human perspective.
This hotel is on a busy road which is to be expected for a ' motel' but I don't expect noise from inside the bedroom.
The aircon was turned off, so it wasn't that.
The fridge was rattling away so that was turned off.
There was an unexplained noise which seemed to come from inside the bathroom- may have been aircon units in the ducting or something.

That said, pleasant lobby area, a good night's sleep having blocked out the noise. Room was clean & comfortable.

Room Tip: Not sure if they are available but ask for one away from the road. Also, ground floor if you can'...

Wait a year or two to stay here. This hotel is old and under renovations. Room was in disrepair, smelled bad, and had sticky carpets. Staff promised points to make up for this but did not give them to us or any compensation. Said it was a non-smoking room but it was not. Overall YUCK.
