Please Check credit card statement once you leave the properity. I was over-charge $84.00 per night for a $50.00 per night room. Manager was very rude and offer a refund if I travel 380 miles to return my card

Stayed in a room with king bed, bed had a foam topper on it, pretty good but still woke up with sore back. Flat screen tv, ok. Good hot shower, just not much pressure. Clean just old.
Not much of a breakfast, contential for sure.
If you don't go to one of the bigger more expensive places, this was an ok place for the money.Little towns don't usually have a lot to choose from anyway.
We did get to have the car just out side the door, which is nice for loading up, especially if your on a bike.

I cannot express strongly enough my dissatisfaction with this place, at which I stayed on a Friday night prior to attending the Sherwood Forest Faire that weekend.

When I arrived at (almost 11:00pm) the lobby was already locked up and unlit, and I had to ring and knock repeatedly before someone came out of the back -- clearly having been asleep already. All communication was through a more secure window/slot than a bank would have, making it almost impossible to understand his already difficult accent. He acted as though he couldn't find my online reservation, so I had to fill out paperwork by hand as though none had been made, and upon my complaining he agreed that it wasn't really necessary since he did have the info. When making the online reservation I indicated that I would be paying in cash, and gave a credit card number at that time to "hold the reservation" yet he kept insisting that I give him a credit card, which I refused to do and insisted that he take cash without a card -- which he finally did. He then had to search his map to find a room; clearly none was assigned and awaiting. And to top it off that room was already occupied, and I scared the hell out of the lady already sleeping in it when I opened the door and encountered the inner safety lock. Going back to the office, and waiting again through ringing and knocking for the same apparently-sleeping man, I watched him search again until he finally settled on another room. The room, when I finally got one of my own, was no better or worse than I had expected when I reserved it online.

The Saturday morning continental breakfast is the absolute minimum one might expect. That same guy was still on duty when I went at almost 9:00am.

And last but not least, when I went to check out, my credit card was almost charged despite my having paid in cash the night before when I checked in.

I will assuredly never stay there again.

First of all I wanna say there's not much around giddings tx . The only reason why we stayed here was bc friend paid for it ... ok 1 .. we went to walmart across the way and bought cleaning stuff . 2 .. we asked for an extra towel and they don't speak English good So We gave up And Walked Away . They painted the tub which is peeling so it clogged the drain they wouldn't fix it ... we stayed 9 nights 10 days they made our bed and gave us 2 clean towels only 2 twice .. they NEVER gave us clean sheets .. The best part they called us on our last night and told us she only paid for 9 nights which I tried telling her yes its 9 nights but she wouldn't understand me she said with what I kinda understood wanted me to call the friend to get more money or she said we had to leave we could no longer stay .. I told her it's 9 o'clock at night and people are sleeping I'm not calling her at that time at night so she said she is going to call her 1st thing tomorrow morning so I went directly to the office and what do u know she was Wrong and the room was paid for all 9 nights! DUHHHH THAT'S WHAT I WAS TRYING TO TELL YOU LADY!!! .. The website lies .. NOOO WIFI it's all blocked h! NOOO continental breakfast ! There's no bedbugs but ewwww good thing for clorox bleach lol .. Don't waste your money

I am a professional road warrior; I am on the road about 200 nights per year. I rely on reviews to select where I stay. When I arrived at the Best Western in Giddings, I was floored when the girl said her lowest price room was $169 ! Rather than challenging I left and went across the street to this America's Best Value Inn. The on-line reviews are terrible, but I try to spend under $100 a night and I was very tired. I asked to see the room before checking in and was given access to room 308. WOW ! Everything was 100% perfect, new, clean and COMFORTABLE. Although their breakfast was worthless, I decided to spend a second night there rather than face an unknown room in Elgin. I looked into several of the rooms and every room was in perfect condition, the same as 308. The grounds were emaculate and the owners were friendly. I suspect the negative postings are related to the other hotel down the road which ranks as a sewer. For under $60 a night, this is a great value and a pleasure. Do not be misled by the BS of the negative reviews.

Room Tip: Good restaurants abound in Giddings; not part of the hotel.

The rooms smells and there was dead roaches on the bathroom floor and bugs climbing on the walls by the beds. I was told I had queen beds but when we got there, they only have full size. No queen beds in any rooms. The receptionist was nice but the manager was rude and refused to refund my money. I wouldn't have eaten breakfast there either. Even the front desk area smelled. The beds were hard when we sat on them. It was like you were setting on the box springs instead of a mattress. Rooms doesn't even look like the pictures. go down the street for a few $'s more and get a exceptional room with Queen and King size beds.

Room Tip: Go to the Best Western down the street. For just a few $'s more you get great rooms and cleanlin...
