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

While traveling to Kansas City, KS, we stopped and stayed at the Precious Moments hotel. It was 0200 when we arrived, but the staff was very friendly and got us into a room quickly. We chose this hotel because they were pet friendly. Our sweet baby Hercules was so comfy in his bed! The rooms are nice and spacious with... More

Okay, I will admit I am a sucker for big lobbies. I loved walking into this three story lobby with the winding staircase in the center. The breakfast area is at the top of those stairs and I loved that it had a lovely mezzanine area overlooking the lobby. We were well taken care of by a fully staffed front... More

Stopped here on a road trip. A little dated and not updated but clean and comfortable. Visited the Precious Moments Chapel and grounds. Found that they were having a Precious Moments family reunion of collectors that were staying at the hotel. Interesting visit. Hotel was okay for a nights visit just a little old and musty. Desk clerks and maids... More

This hotel is geared around the Precious Moments figurines and we just happened to be there the night before their yearly convention! Rooms were open with lots of statues for sale; quite interesting. Our room was inexpensive but huge with a king sized bed. Bathroom had a huge countertop and all the amenities that we needed. The desk staff was... More
