“Decent Stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2006

Comfortable beds and pillows.

They were renovating (putting in new sinks in most of the rooms).
The sinks were laid outside of all the doors. Our room was already renovated and still smelled of glue. I asked for a room away from the street and I got a room on the street. The A/C unit was loud enough so it didn't matter too much. The Front Desk were not real helpful and not overly friendly.

My main complaint is the price. We paid $95 for this room. This is College Station not a resort city! About $25 too much.

Good: Price is low, easy access in to A&M and large rooms

Bad: Bathrooms extremely small and AC units old and noisy

I stayed here for an Aggie baseball game and needed an affordable and nice place to stay. Best Western is located on University on top of a hill called Chimney Hill (thus the name). It is 2 miles from campus making it easy to get there for games, graduation, etc. About 1 mile to the north is some good restaurants (Wing's n More, Cheddars, & Rockfish). The lobby is small and there is a small room for eating breakfast they provide . Check in is very easy and we got a room in the same building as the lobby. The employees were friendly and efficient and it took about 5 minutes to get checked in. This is an older property with 3 buildings and the hallways are on the outside. You can hear road noise and people going by in the hallways a little but not enough to be a bother. The room has a desk, armoire with TV, and two chairs and small table. Strangely enough there was no phone connection or high speed connection by the desk. I guess you would have to use the laptop in bed to use the internet. I don't remember high speed being offered. The room is nice sized and you don't feel clausterphobic. It has a mini fridge and microwave which is very nice. The AC unit is a little noisy but works quickly to cool the room. I got used to it within an hour. The big problem is the bathroom. You open the door and there is barely enough room for it to clear. The bathtub is the narrowest one a have seen and it was very low. The shower was a premolded plastic type that looked much like the one in my father's motorhome. Also there is only one small light which doesn't provide much light to the bathroom and as soon as you close the shower curtain the shower gets dark. If you take a hot shower expect the room to be sauna-like within five minutes. I like shower pressure, but this one had so much I felt the soap was being blasted off me with a fire hose.

It is sad because the room was fairly nice and the bed was comfy. I just wish they could have made the bathrooms better. This would be much nicer if the bathrooms were a little larger or they redesigned the shower. I would have gave this an above average but the bathroom was a big letdown.
