“Nice, clean hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

I stayed here last weekend for a wedding. I was pleasantly surprised at how clean and new the hotel was. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was nice, it would have been better to have more fresh fruit available, but the town itself had only one small grocery store so I can see the problem with that. The reason this I rated this hotel a 4 out of 5 was is more of a corporate issue than a local issue. For one, the name of the hotel is Best Western Inn and Suites. This is a misnomer. There are no suites. There is one "apartment" (this is what the staff calls it) that is a two room suite very nice and roomy. It is a suite with one king bed. For the price of $149 a night (a price close to the price I pay for a suite in Destin, FL or D.C. metro area) I would think there would have been two queen beds versus one king bed. It would make sense that a family needing the suite needs the bed space. Overall I was happy with the hotel, but a two night stay cost me $344, which is in my opinion is way too costly for this area and this hotel.

This motel is very modern and clean. The price reflects its location on one of the two main routes from Dallas to Texas A&M University. If you are forced to find lodging outside of the College Station area this is a good choice. Beds were comfy and the buffet full breakfast with waffles and bacon biscuits and gravy was excellent.

We have stayed here on multiple trips to the Bryan/Hearne/Calvert area and always enjoyed the stay. It is a very pleasant clean hotel staffed by extremely friendly courteous and conscientious employees. The showers are great as are the big flat screen TVs and the comfortable beds. The free breakfast includes everything you want/need and there is even a fitness room & swimming pool - we will have to try that next stay. No chance we won't return!

Room Tip: We always opt for a room facing the back of the hotel - overlooking the pool and fields rather than...

Did a short job in Franklin, TX. Drove there checked in at 2:15am and checked out at 6:00am the same morning. It was short stay but a Godsend, I really needed a nap and a shower.
A very nice, large room. Very clean. The young lady at the front desk at check in was very nice.
Excellent breakfast. Will return when working in the area.

We overnighted here before a duck hunt so we needed to get up early and hit the road the next morning. No cafe in town was going to be open, so we asked how early they serve breakfast. The staff normally has it ready at 6:30, but we needed to eat at 4:30. When they understood that, they said they would get it ready at 4:30...AND THEY DID, AND IT WAS A HOT BREAKFAST TOO!

Down side was, we had a warm front move in and couldn't get the room cool enough, but we didn't bother them with it. In retrospect, they may have had the A/C shut off in the middle of winter, since it's a new motel, they may not yet have a grip on Texas weather.

I'll be back next week, when it's cooler!

This hotel was very nice. Room was big and well appointed, good breakfast, very nice dining area and lobby. Not what I expected for this little town. Pleasantly surprised, and would definitely stay here again,
