Guest Inn San Benito / Harlingen
Ranked #3 of 4 Hotels in San Benito
Reviewed July 1, 2013

we travelled from the uk to visit family in harlingen, and stayed here for two weeks. The room was more than satisfactory, which consisted of a large bed, sofa, and also a fridge. the bathroom was a bath with shower over and a toilet, there was a sink with vanity unit seperate. The room had a ceiling fan. and a very welcoming and good air con unit which was very easy to control to suit you. There is a laundry room consisting of a washing machine and a dryer at the end of the building. There are no ironing boards or irons though. The housekeepers do a great job keeping the rooms nice and clean and are very friendly. There is a pool which is good and secure if you have children. Only downfall is walls are very thin, so if you have a noisy neighbour can be a bit annoying. parking at night is a bit crammed as this does seem to be a popular place to stay. Breakfast is small selection but does the job. Overall i would recommend this place to stay, and would definately return again.

I stayed at the San Benito America's best Value Inn at the end of April 2013. The room was comfortable with both AC and ceiling fan; TV was working great, so were all the fixtures and appliances.
But the most important thing of all is that I forgot an expensive camera battery and charger plugged in next to the wash basin and they sent it back to me! (at my expense of course). it is great to know that honest people still exist and this motel is definitely an honest business.

Room Tip: the motel is set back from the road so all rooms are quiet.

We have been staying here since the beginning of May. My husband is on an extended work assignment 30 mins away. Yah,30 mins away. We could have chosen another hotel closer but WILL NOT LEAVE THIS ONE. That being said, I have accumulated here and have belongings, electronic and otherwise and to my knowledge, nothing is missing!!! The service is good. The staff is always friendly and I know them almost personally, now. The rooms are clean and it is a fairly new hotel. Any problems are taken care of right away. Weekly rates are great. I love the kitchenettes. This hotel is always full. Which says alot about the price and service.The free breakfast is your average small hotel breakfast but there is always a line to get it. We are only 40 mins away from the ocean. 5 mins to Walmart and the grocery store. 5 mins to the main strip where there are tons of restaurants, but not crowded in with a ton of other businesses close to us. 5 mins from 2 main highways. 10 mins to the movies. 20 mins to an all designer outlet mall in Mercedes TX. The only downside I have had, the towels are in short supply. They are taken from you in the morning and given back in the evening. At least to us. It could be because we are extended stay. Sometimes we don't get them back, most times we do. The parking is tight sometimes when there is a party because the hotel has a banquet room for rent.Parties can bring rowdy people but that's not the hotel's fault. The parties are always over by 11:30pm. No fitness center and I've found no iron or board. Great stay over all so far.

Room Tip: The 3 bed 2 room suite. Comfy roomy and you are away from the fray of people. Has a balcony more pri...

Enjoyed the stay in this quiet little town next to Harlingen and only 20 minutes from Brownsville.The room was exceptional and the service was great. The area was close to shopping and a good place to just seclude yourself..

Room Tip: Stay longer and ask for a good rate

Mouse alive in garbage can inside room. Mouse feces found all over sheets. Water heater broken down, so unable to take shower till later the next morning. Towels very small and torn. Management unwilling to compensate for our sleepless night due to the mouse. Very unhappy with service there.

we were so glad my sister recommended the San Benito location for America's Best Value Inn & Suites. Check in was smooth and delightful. The staff was great and helpful throughout our 4 day stay. We couldn't have asked for a better location. We strongly recommend this motel for a short or long stay. We are definitely coming back and have already booked our trip. Thanks to the Staff at the San Benito location for making our stay memorable!!!
