I had to find a hotel in Brownsville for work and had been told some no-so-good things about some nicer places so I went ahead and booked the Best Western based on the favorable reviews on this site.
To be honest, the rave reviews I read seem to be suspect. Yes, the hotel can be considered "clean" (no blatant stains to notice), but the pool was not any better than your typical motel pool. The breakfast was edible but not remarkable. When I arrived at my room after check-in, I was greeted by a strong chemical odor coming from the room, as was my business partner in his room next door. We both had to keep our doors propped open for a while to let the odor dissipate. Also, the parking lot was overrun with large, loud birds that sat in the trees. They were quite noisy and obnoxious. The rooms themselves were passable, but not noteworthy.
I guess for $50 per night, people might be impressed. But if you are reading reviews based on Brownsville hotels popularity standings on this site, be aware that at $50 per night, you still get what you pay for. Don't be fooled into thinking this property is some sort of "oasis" right off the highway.
