“Grossly overpriced”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Really could not believe this motel charged $216.00 a night for two rooms, one for one person, and one for two people both with the AARP discount in the middle of the week. The rooms were clean enough, but need to be updated. The rooms open to the outside, no elevator to the second floor. Old style tv's that we could not set the closed captioning. A construction crew had people barbequing & partying in the parking lot until midnight, very noisy. The free breakfast was a flat omelet (not fluffy) that you could order with a couple of choices of ingredients. Not great in my opinion. Would not stay here again and cannot recommend it to anyone for these prices.

One night stop of the trip across country. Very clean, which is highest on my list of necessities. Quiet room, comfortable beds. Did not use the pool, but it looked very clean, but basic. Air conditioning worked well.
Great free breakfast, made to order eggs, omelets, pancakes, etc. Fresh fruit. Good stop for passing through, but rather pricey - $106 for 2 adults, 2 queen beds.

We found this hotel to be decent and the staff friendly. There are not many choices in this little Texas town. The room was clean but a bit dated. The TV was old, but in working order. The bed and bedding were very comfortable. The A/C fan kept switching on and off which was disruptive to my sleep. The breakfast was good and provided the regular items along with delicious omelets.
We had a pleasant stay and would recommend.

We called from the road on a weekday in January, to find the town almost full, and a "suite" at this Best Western the only non-smoking room available. We took it. The property is aging, the walls thin, the furniture slightly shabby, and a bit of a mildew smell in the room which was hot. Using the A/C helped the musty smell. The bed was comfortable, the shower fine, the hot water abundant, and the towels fine. The stay was OK.

We stayed here for a night and had a restful night. The beds were very comfortable, the pillows were soft, and the room temperature was just right. The room was very clean and had a mini fridge, microwave, hair dryer, and cable TV. The only thing I didn't like about the room was a musky smell, maybe from the room being closed for too long. Another good thing about the hotel was the free breakfast which included many options like pancakes, eggs made to order, cereal, toast, biscuits with gravy, oatmeal along with coffee, juice, milk and tea. Will stay again!

I stayed here on business and my only compliant is that you can hear your neighbors anytime they open or close their door. If they slam the door it will shake the wall. The beds were comfortable and showers clean. I would definitely stay here again if I needed a place to stay with my pet. Yes they take pets for an additional $10 a night if you notify them ahead of time.

The breakfast omelets were pretty good too as they are cooked to order for you.
