The murder mystery event hosted by the garza hotel was a delightful and FUN experience from the moment we walked in the door. The staff was warm and welcoming and went above and beyond to make sure that everyone had a great experience. Though it was our first murder mystery, one couple said it was their third in Texas and was by far the best one in Texas they had attended. The food, both dinner and breakfast, was exceptional quality. I can not say enough great things about this establishment. In fact, we had so much fun, as we were leaving we booked another event for us and two other couples in our family. We can't wait to come back to our new 'home away from home'.

Murder mystery night at Hotel Garza is an epic social event! It has been a long time since I've been to a BB and actually was treated to a breakfast that was fresh and hearty. This place if first class from top to bottom and the staff is excellent.

The murder mystery event hosted by Ian and Ruth Torrens at the Hotel Garza in Post, Texas was an absolute blast! The accommodations were beautiful, the food fantastic, and the mystery game event kept everyone guessing! The tone of the whole weekend is so upbeat and fun, that you cannot help but have a great time! It is definitely a trip to remember, and one I hope to experience again very soon!

We enjoyed a fun-filled night full of games, mystery, and drinks! It was a great evening and a welcome change from the same old New Years routine. We found the hosts to be charming and very welcoming. The rooms in the hotel are all decorated differently, and are all very quaint and full of personality. This is our second time to stay here, and we will definitely come again!

If you haven't had the Hotel Garza Murder Mystery Weekend experience....You definitely should! The hotel was built in 1915 I believe....it is so beautiful! So charming! Every room is decorated differently. Ruth and Ian, the owners, are just precious. The Murder Mystery weekend is definitely a weekend to remember! They make it so fun and it runs so smoothly, the food is excellent, their energy is wonderful, I don't know where they get it all to do all they do for so many. Murder, trivia, live music, singing around the fire.... Perfection!

The shops around are wonderful....red brick roads......the whole area is super charming! :)

Room Tip: All the rooms are so charming...I loved room 21...it was an old fashioned tea room/suite.....old cla...

We recently stayed at the Hotel Garza for their Murder Mystery night. It is a lovely place with welcoming owners. They seemed very genuine and executed everything effortlessly. The whole place is very beautiful and homey. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Number 10 was very nice. Small bathroom but worked well for us.

This place was recommended to me by a friend as an interesting change to the run of the mill hotels in Texas. After travelling about Texas for five days and experiencing the bland and characterless hotels en route, it was a treat to find this one, at reasonable cost too, with a lot of extremely interesting artefacts and memorabilia around the place. The interior, whilst having all the modern conveniences, was reminiscent of an earlier era in American history. It has a quirky first floor sitting room with some really interesting stuff lying about to lookat and touch. I could just breathe Texas of the1920's! It was great. I thought it would be a one horse town with not a lot to do, but I was pointed in the right direction by the very friendly couple owning it and discovered a lot of local things to do. With Lubbock nearby for a game of golf and more shops etc. but for anyone wanting to find the 'real' Texas, Hotel Garza in Post is the place to make for. Unfortunately, I enjoyed the atmosphere and the sociable couple running it so much I ended up staying much longer than I intended. Consequently, I had to drive rather rapidly back to Houston to catch my plane back home. However, it was an easy run and did it in a day. Well worth the visit.

Room Tip: A good variety of rooms depending on one's needs. I saw a few and each one had a character of it...
