The overall experience was very nice. The price was very reasonable, and facility was nice. The only thing to really complain about was the construction that was going on. The building is a bit dated and they were in the process of updating some things. The construction crews had to store materials in many of the prime parking spots, but... More

We stopped thinking it was a Best Western. The property has changed owners and may become part of another lodging chain. The hotel appears massive for only having 120 rooms. The staff was very pleasant and the rate was very economical. The rooms are very large and slightly dated. The A/C smells a little musty and was noisy in the... More

Seemed nice, clean room, breakfast OK but not outstanding, access to downtown definitely limited without getting on the freeway. Limited information available from the front desk staff, without info on historic sites in the area. Disappointed after all I had heard about it.

The hotel was easy to find with a good location, the staff was very helpful. The pool was open until midnight which was nice. The rooms were pretty decent we had some drywall damage in our room to the ceiling which I would say was from moisture at some time. The lobby area on the 2nd floor was great. We... More

We stayed at the Precious Moments hotel as part of a baseball tournament. The hotel is clearly showing its age. Our room was constantly damp, despite having the a/c running. There was also a moldy smell present. While the bathroom has been updated, and the room is spacious overall, the rest of space is showing signs of wear and tear.... More

I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. We checked in about 2am a day earlier than our reservation and they were very accommodating. The next morning we found an issue with our room so they moved us. The second room had an old mattress and since we were going to be there 6 nights we asked to be... More

We returned for yet another short visit to Carthage our home for three happy years 30 plus years ago. We are somewhat amused and amazed at this whole Precious Moments thing. That happened way after we moved to Texas. We were drawn by the Internet presence, TripAdvisor reviews and naturally the price. Precious Moments had nothing to do with it.... More

Although the hotel rooms and decor are slightly dated they aren't at all worn, and they're very clean and very well maintained. There's a large indoor pool, with towels supplied. It's not within walking distance of anything, and restaurants are a drive of a couple miles. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Well, helpful except for one event. When I... More

I found this hotel to be just what I needed. I was only there for the night but it was perfect for me. Comfortable, clean, safe, great bed, powerful a/c, indoor pool and an outdoor patio. I particularly loved that aspect, I got to relax in the sun while the noise from any swimmer was contained inside. It's really the... More
