9.7 Excellent
Pros: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.
Cons:The pool was not operable. We stayed there during spring break 2015 and it was being worked on and again in December.
8.0 Great
Pros:Second time staying here over four years. It's a solid hotel. Attentive and friendly staff. Clean rooms. Good location in central Texas.
5.4 Passable
Cons: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.
8.2 Great
Pros:Good complimentary breakfast
Cons:Smell of tobacco smoke in 2nd floor hallway
4.5 Mediocre
Pros:I liked the location being right off I 35. The staff was very friendly.
Cons: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.
8.0 Great
Pros:Good, clean rooms
Cons:Not quite as nice as other Best Western's we've stayed at, but still good. Tediously small parking lot though... NOT good for trailers or big trucks. View out our room was right into several folks' not-too-clean backyards so don't expect to have your blinds open
6.0 Okay
Pros:Location was great Breakfast was pretty good Beds are comfortable Decent pool Free WiFi GREAT STAFF!
Cons:No fitness center CRICKETS EVERYWHERE!!
