“Nice enough for a return visit”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

I am still trying to think of something to write... it was nice, a little noisy, but nice.

This was a quick stop over on a longer trip, apparently so quick that I am struggling to think of what was wrong, or what was good.
Super easy to find, right off the highway. Service was ok, staff was bored, but attentive. Bottled water and hot dogs on arrival (I did not attempt the dogs). I had a catered dinner and breakfast provided by co-workers, so I did not get to see the meals they had.
Rooms are typical, clean, spacious and have a nice big TV with a good picture. The pool is outdoor and attracts a crowd in the Texas afternoon, which made the room a little noisy.

Overall, another safe bet in Texas.

On a side note, I was "fortunate" to meet the Washington County Sheriff's Department (not really by my choice). These guys were really helpful and provided a positive image of Law Enforcement. Thanks fellas!!

Room Tip: Even numbered rooms are on the pool side.

This is my first "second" review of a hotel. I've now stayed here 4 or 5 times in the last year, and the BW-Brenham continues to rank very high on my list of favorite BW's. They seem to get everything RIGHT, including the small things.

The staff is exceptional, from manager to front desk. All are courteous, professional, and know the area.

Rooms are large, clean and extremely well appointed for a hotel of this size. I noticed the small things on my last trip - how many hotel rooms have both a smoke detector AND a carbon monoxide detector ? A dedicated multi-prong electric outlet on the desk for laptop, phone, etc. Towels are large, fluffy and plentiful. Excellent fridge & micro, nice flat screen TV (need a channel guide though), good Wi-Fi, etc, etc.

Breakfast - above average. Brand-name cereals, real eggs, good sausage, and excellent pastries (I think the latter are made at a local bakery). In addition, the lobby has snacks available as well as a nice selection of coffee and Bigelow teas and freshly-made (on-site) cookies.

Brenham is a great little town, with a lot of Texas historic sights nearby (see Independence, TX). "Home of Bluebell Ice Cream, baseball and Blinn College" as the locals used to say. I would add BarBQ to that list - don't miss the excellent BarBQ at Nathan's ! The best part might have been the drive in-out of town as the Bluebonnets and other wildflowers were in bloom !

This is a permanent stop for me on my Houston trips - great place to decompress after a long week in the big city.

I stayed at this hotel the past two weekends for soccer events for my daughter, and we have had a wonderful experience. The staff is incredibly personable and accommodating. I especially enjoyed getting to know Charlotte at the front desk who is a real pleasure to visit with. The hotel is nicely located just off the freeway. There is plenty of parking, and the rooms are spacious with up to date amenities. The breakfast in the morning is in a separate room with plenty of space. The beds are comfortable. We pricelined this hotel in the $65 range on the weekends that we were there. I imagine that will fluctuate with the business of the weekend. While I was there on Saturday there was a very large event taking place in Brenham. Every hotel was full. I watched a gentleman at the front desk try and help people find rooms at other hotels in surrounding areas of Brenham. While they waited, he would offer them coffee. His attempts to help them went far past what would be expected of someone in his position. I was truly impressed.

Room Tip: The road is kind of close to the rooms. If you are a light sleeper, you may want to request a room...

I had the opportunity to have been in the area on business, and was able to work in a visit to see my grand daughter who attends Blinn College in Brenham. I Pricelined the area, and was fortunate enough to be booked into the Best Western Inn. While a bit dated in style, I found it to be exceptionally clean, comfortable and staffed with some good ol' Texas folks. They gave me a couple of great suggestions of where we could have a nice meal, as well as offered suggestions for some of the local sights, If I had the time. (I would have enjoyed to have taken the Blue Bell Ice Cream plant tour, but did not have the time) lol. Brenham is a nice, historic college town, and you the Best Western here will find clean, comfortable and hospitable. What more could you ask for?

Room Tip: Get a room on the back side, near the lovely pool if possible

Our experience was a great one. The front desk clerk was so very helpful, with directions, and choices of restaurants. He made us feel like "the Customer is priority". The room was very clean and inviting after a long drive. We were not able to take advantage of the complimentary breakfast that he strongly encouraged us to do but, maybe next time. Also, the housekeeping attendant was equally attentive. Would I stay here again? YES, and I would recommend it to friends.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
A college town, this Brenham hotel is just minutes from both Blinn College and Brenham State School, but there’s much more to the region than academic and school sports. Many guests of our Brenham hotel travel to the region to sample the delectable offerings at the Blue Bell Creameries. Others are in town to score a treasure trove or sell their own goods at the Round Top Antique Fair. Great food, great shopping and true southern hospitality are what set the region apart. Just 15 miles from the birthplace of Texas, Washington-on-the-Brazos, our Brenham hotel is close to everything. We’re 15 miles from Lake Somerville, 45 minutes from Texas A&M University, and 90 miles from Houston and Austin near Historic Old Baylor. Located in great historic downtown, our hotel is close to the Antique Rose Emporium, 17 miles from Round Top Festival Hill, four miles from Unity Theatre and just three miles from Giddings Stone Mansion. We’re a pet-friendly hotel with adjoining rooms for large families or groups. Nestled in Blue Bonnet Country, the best of Texas is right at your doorstep. Heritage Home Tours are available nearby, and there are several state parks within a 20 minute drive. We’re also close to several sports complexes, so taking in a game is a breeze. Form horseback riding to boating or visiting the local Texas Cotton Gin Museum, there’s something for everyone. At our Brenham hotel, we also specialize in corporate and business travel. Valmont Industries, Scott & White Hospital, Brenham State School and the Blue Bell Creameries all send workers to the region, and we’re happy to host business guests. We offer a free hot breakfast to all guests, and hot waffles with fresh fruits, yogurts, cereals, pastries and 100% Arabica coffee is a great way to start the morning. ... more   less
