We were visiting Hamilton to move my 70 year old mother into her new home since my father died in June. My mother has Lupus, arthritis and asthma and therefore is in a high risk category for contracting COVID. My family and I quarantined in order to help her move her things into her house. Upon arriving at the hotel, my family stayed in the car while I went in to check in. Immediately I realized there were two people in the reception area not wearing masks. I walked in and paused and said to the hotel employee, “I’ll wait for you to put your mask on.” She informed me she was not wearing a mask as she didn’t have to. I then politely asked why she would not wear a mask. She said because there is enough room between us. She was polite but even refused when I told her there was a mask mandate in the state and she said not in her county. I checked in and we went straight to our rooms. Every time we would leave we would see others not wearing masks inside. When I inquired about the restaurant I was told they had to shut down because of COVID cases! The next morning when we went to breakfast, not a single person was wearing a mask, not even the person making the food! I’m just heartbroken over this fact as I would hate to bring COVID to my mother after all we’ve done to stay safe. The least they could do is have disposable masks available that staff can put on when requested. I looked it up and Hamilton County does have a mask mandate. They are breaking the law and will not see my business again.

With Covid still active in everyone's minds my wife and i were looking for a quiet place to celebrate. Ive wanted to visit Hamiltin and Hico so this was a great choice. The crowds of Joanna Gates wanna be at the hotel in Hico ruled it out. At check in the receptionist knew my name. Now that could have been because he was well prepared or it could have been because we were one of only two rooms booked on a Thursday. Friday before an event folks started to role in so my wife made me put pants on. Walking around the hotel thursday in my PJs made it feel like home. As others have said, great staff, good food, comfortable beds and convenient. Can't ask for much more. We had a wonderful visit and highly recommend it as a base to operate from in the area.

Loved the western decor of this hotel. Our room was very clean. The beds were comfortable . Great breakfast of eggs, bacon,sausage,biscuits and gravy. My husband is very picky about his coffee and loved what was available here. What a neat little oasis on the patio. There is a waterfall, small pool and hot tub with a very unique fire pit. It was so relaxing to sit and hear the waterfall and have the blazing fire keeping you warm. Susie and Jennifer were so friendly and very accommodating. There was no decaf coffee available and they did their best and found some. These ladies were so friendly. Helen at reception was the most cheerful, helpful and is such an asset to this hotel, This hotel is located next to two huge covered rodeo arenas. There is a Cafe at the location but was closed Monday and Tuesday when we were there. We highly recommend this accommodation.

This was not our first stay at Circle T, and it won't be our last either. Only minutes from town but feels so far away from everything, it's a great place to rest yourself. This is the place to stay for Bacon Bash Texas, as it's only about a 30 minute drive from Cranfils Gap. The pool and hot tub offered relaxation after a long day, and the complimentary hot breakfast was delicious. Rooms are clean and staff is friendly and helpful. Can't say enough good stuff about this place. We'll be back for sure!

My first 2 weekends were great; Helen was VERY friendly & helpful, the facility is nice and breakfast good! So I booked 4 more weekend stays, the third weekend (I did not see Helen) was just BAD. When I asked for the same things that had been offered to me during my prior stays (extra breakfast tickets & late checkout because the rodeo was long) the manager asked me “what my problem was?” making me feel like I was asking for something outrageous and then told me “that’s not going to happen”. When I found a large cockroach in our room and showed it to the manager he didn’t even apologize but said “it happens, they get in”. First I was told late checkout was not possible because of new guests arriving, then I was told I could pay for late checkout. I declined to pay extra and checked out at 11:30am, but was still charged the extra $40 just for asking about late checkout. I called immediate (2 days ago) but have not received the refund they promised. And when we left Circle T on Sunday evening the Hotel parking lot was empty... so much for all these guests arriving. It is disappointing that this hotel does not treat their regular Rodeo Families better. The ability to take a hot shower after a long dusty rodeo day would make a big difference and allow a refreshed drive home, all it would take the hotel is to change their housekeeping schedule. Helen understood that and that was very much appreciated by all the rodeo families I talked to. I was not the only one disappointed this Oct 5/6 weekend.

We apologize we were not able to provide you with complimentary non-guest breakfast tickets and to waive the late fee during your stay. We will take your recommendations of how we can improve Into consideration. I am happy we were able to assist you with your belongings and store it in my office to keep it safe while you were finishing your arena events. We also apologize a bug went into your room. This is rare, but it may happen. We use a professional pest control company on a monthly basis to do our best to keep them out. Your room rate was adjusted due to the incorrect charge made in error and the inconveniences you experienced while you were here. It unfortunately may take a couple of days for your adjustment to process through the bank. Please contact me immediately at the hotel if you do not see it on your account in a few dates. We hope you do come back to the hotel to give us a another chance even though you have stated you do not recommend others to visit us.
