If you are looking for a quiet place to sleep. Move on down the road. Not only does the bar keep you awake but the road noise is horrible. The air conditioner is set to stay running no matter what. The room we stayed in had an issue with the compressor trying to kick on every few seconds. It was so bad it vibrated the windows! We did complain and we were told the manager Cori would be giving us a call. We have tried calling her and the staff says she will be "back in an hour". This was two days ago and ,still she has not called. We stayed in room 319 and my in laws stayed in 219 above the bar. Not only was the noise bad in their room from the bar, they had a huge water roach. We all left around dawn. No way we were staying any longer than we had to.
1st time back in Bandera in 10yrs. Thought the hotel was just the refurbished hotel above the Purple Cow saloon, but the entire building was torn down and this new hotel built. They did a very good job trying to maintain the western feel in the lobby. A great little bar in the lobby. The rooms are large and very comfortable. That was the best hotel bed I have been in in a very long time. Had a balcony room and it was neat to sit up there at night watching the traffic flow by. The bathroom an interesting set up walk through it to get to the room , but it was nice. Staff were so very friendly. A bit pricy but bandera is becoming very touristy so costs are rising. Would stay agai. Great walking distance to great restaurants and bars. And there is a bar/ dancehall in the same building. Where the purple cow used to be for those familiar with bandera of the past…
We loved other times we Stayed here,but this time the front desk staff was terrible. Not welcoming and was put on second floor next to band. Rethinking our next stay here. We were not even recognized as being a diamond member.
The Best Western in Bandera, Texas is a very nice hotel. If I am ever in Bandera again in the future, I will definitely stay there. The room was very nice and spacious. The breakfast accommodated all our needs, and then some. The location to restaurants and shops is excellent.
Staff was helpful and friendly. Told us about some area attractions we might like while we were in town. Rooms were spacious, beds were comfortable, breakfast was generous. We enjoyed our stay and will book another stay if we are in Bandera again.
This was a very clean and cute hotel. Bed was comfortable. I would definitely stay again. Great location cute decor. Friendly staff. Did not use the restaurant but ate at the Hens nest and it was very good.
The best part of the visit was the staff, they all take great pride in working at that location, they take ownership and show it. We got the first waffle from their new waffle machine, shaped like the state of TX. Highly recommend.
Who on earth designed this place?! - The hotel hallway opens DIRECTLY into the bathroom - The bathroom then has only a SLIDING door to the room so all acoustics can be heard - The AC unit is about a foot away from your face when you’re in bed - The shower has no door so water sprays all over the bathroom Saying that, we had a very pleasant stay, despite some issues checking in, Ashley at reception was fantastic at resolving a room change. The hotel is only 1 year old so the best Best Western we’ve stayed in. Great location in the centre of Bandera to explore from and we highly recommend Rancho Cortez for a day.
After stopping at 8 hotels that had no vacancy I was very pleased to get a room here at Best Western and it ended up being one of the best hotels I've ever stayed, the staff was great, room was large.
These rooms have no door to the bathroom. The bathroom is as soon as you walk in the room. If you are sitting on the toilet and the room door is open there is direct line of site to the hallway. At least put a curtain up or something. I have never seen a hotel that when you open the door you are staring at the toilet. Do not walk barefoot in your room. The floors were filthy and turned our feet black after showering. For a new hotel this was pathetic.
