“Very nice and a great value”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

This Best Western shows a great value compared to the other newer properties in Alvin. Anna at the front desk is always smiling, cheerful, and happy to help however she can. The breakfast is good. The hotel has a good sized pool. Lots of restaurant options nearby for dinner. Beds are super comfortable and the rooms are very clean. The new carpet in the rooms just tops things off and makes for a great hidden gem in Alvin.

I was to be a guest speaker early the next morning. Since Alvin, TX is about a 3 hr drive, I decided to come in the night before. It was cold & rainy, I was checked in quickly & told the exact location of my room. The motel was within 10 min. to my destination. The family came along, & all wanted to eat something different . I was able to send my husband out for McD's for the kids, something for me & him from 2 separate places...he was back quickly. All the staff were kind & helpful.

The staff was pleasant and friendly. Pillows were NOT flat! The breakfast was the usual fare;dry cereal, make your own waffles,fruit, pastries, and yogurt, and one exception that needs to be mentioned; they have a small refrigerator with Jimmy Dean brand breakfast foods (Breakfast Taco, Sausage, Egg and Cheese Biscuit). The Breakfast area is small. Two small round tables. If several folks are eating at the same time, you will have to wait or go back to your room. If your room is on the second floor, you will have to walk the one set of stairs that are located in the center (outside) of the building. Not really a bad thing, just that if you are staying in one of the rooms at one end or the other the stairs are not going to be close. Air conditioning was in good working order, plenty of towels and washcloths. We stayed two nights while attending a Motorcycle Rally in Galveston. I would recommend this hotel.

We ended up staying here after a horrible experience at the Best Western Plus Seawall Inn in Galveston. half hour from the beach, nice quiet hotel. No problems checking in, and staff was friendly and helpful. Room was clean and pool looked clean as well. Close to Walmart and restaurants and rate was reasonable.

I would avoid this hotel if at all possible. They only had one guy working the front desk which meant I waited 15 mins to check-in. I rented a room that sleeps six people, yet there were only 3 towels in the room. The bedding was old and dusty along with the rest of the room. I wouldn't recommend this motel to anyone.

The room was great and the breakfast decent but the parking lot and outside areas were filled with mosquitos. It was a cloudy and drizzling day but that's no excuse for leaving a swarm of mosquitos outside our rooms. We had rush to our rooms to escape them.

Even though we seemed to be the only people staying that night the staff was very pleasant and welcoming. The room was clean, the heater worked, and the bathroom functioned. We did not have breakfast as we met friends at Joe's BBQ.
