I stayed in the Hancock Guest Nest: two days of business and then my SO came down for a weekend getaway. It worked well for both! I have been recommending it to anyone I can ever since. It didn't feel like a hotel at all, it felt like house-sitting for a friend. It combines the best of a bed and breakfast with the privacy and anonymity of a hotel; you never see anyone else, you aren't forced to have awkward interactions with anyone on the premises. Someone complained about the trucks in one of these reviews, so I was on the alert for that. I stayed there for 4 nights and I was shaken out of a nap by one maybe once. The lights from the parking lot were on maybe once as well, and I didn't find them off-putting. All in all, it was a quiet, clean, chic, and peaceful place to be. I found it really convenient that the place was so close to the HEB Supermarket as well as the gym and the wine store. I loved this place. If you like autonomy and privacy at a hotel, it's a wonderful place. If you love to be cleaned up after and pampered, try a chain hotel. But it is incredibly inexpensive considering how nice it is. Really—4 nights for $535.00 including tax? At the W that might get you 1 1/2 nights.
