    Great place to stay

    the staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and the breakfast bar is small but sufficient. Nice lounge and eating area. Great location, close to expressway, small towns but also close to Austin and San Antonio.

    The pool was not operable. We stayed there during spring break 2015 and it was being worked on and again in December.

    A good hotel

    Second time staying here over four years. It's a solid hotel. Attentive and friendly staff. Clean rooms. Good location in central Texas.

    Had a non-smoking room but entered and you can smell smoke. I was at the end of the non-smoking section of rooms and the remainder of the rooms down the hall were smoking. Hotel was over booked so they gave me aerosol cans, a portable room filter, and the next day moved me to another room down the hall. Pre-paid for the room three months in advance. Called, three different agents apologized and said they can only offer a voucher. Adios Worst Western.

    Could have better for amount charged

    I liked the location being right off I 35. The staff was very friendly.

    The halls smelled of horrible cigarette smoke. I felt for the 121 dollars I spent for the room I did not get the bang for my buck. I expected it to be allot nicer. For that money there should be a bar and a nicer breakfast with more selection. I do not frequent hotels so I'm sorry for not being able to give more detail. Overall I feel that it could have been nicer for the amount of charged.
