Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Outside appearance is nice , My complaint is there was only mildly warm water for showers, only if you took them in the afternoon. Only one ice machine was working the week we were there. Be aware "by the Lake " means you are in dry dock, can not get to the lake... More

I was pleased all the way around with our stay and the staff was excellent! I don't usually have 200 words or characters to say about anything but...I will make an exception in this case! The food for breakfast was excellent and the comfort of the Hotel is more than I expected. The view of your small town was perfect... More

This is the second time we've stayed at this hotel. We had a room in the side annex so it was very quiet. There is road construction out front but access is easy enough. Good, clean rooms at a reasonable rate. Staff are friendly. Breakfast was fine.

We had a good room which was spacious, comfortable and clean. Unfortunately the hotel is located right on a busy highway, which was being widened at the time of our visit. There are probably other places to stay which are further away from the road and quieter. Most of the guests were construction workers and most of the breakfast items... More

My wife and I were visiting the Zapata TX area to see the amenities of the communities near Falcon Lake and the fishing potential in the area. We have preferred cards with two other national hotel/motel chains; however, neither were available in the Zapata TX area. Chose the Best Western and were very pleasantly surprised. The room was very large,... More

Rarities always draw birders to this area of the Rio Grande Valley. A motel that I have used over the years is the Best Western Inn by the Lake, Zapata. It has served me well over the years and is convenient.

Hotel would be excellent if they fix the problems with plumbing. All we got was extremely hot water at night in the bathtub and in the morning in the sink. It is an accident waiting to happen. Someone could get scalded with the hot water.
