We arrived in College Station for parents weekend to find out our hotel was closed and we had no room. The visitor center told me to try here, and luckily we got their last room. It was not fancy or plush but it was fairly clean and the beds were OK. The room rate was good compared to what is charged in CS at similar or worse places.
We would have probably never visited Navasota either and we found the downtown area to be very charming. This part of Texas is full of Texas history as well. I fully recommend a visit to Navasota.
Staying at the Super 8 wasn't my first choice but it was fine and I would recommend it in a pinch or a tight budget.
