    « Renovated recently »

    We stayed one night in this hotel on our way back home from a trip to Arizona. It is recently renovated so it was clean. Bed was comfortable. Breakfast buffet was ok nothing special. Staff was friendly.

    « Ok, but not the best »

    This hotel was clean and for that I was thankful. However, the bed was extremely uncomfortable. My room was never cleaned my entire stay. The lighting in the bathroom is very dark. Every time I needed to speak to someone at the front desk I had to ring a bell as no one was every up front. My keys to my room had to be rekeyed two different times, which was a bit frustrating. It is a clean hotel. The breakfast was just ok. I thought it strange that I never saw anyone who worked there unless I specifically called for them. It is the best that this town has to offer so I can't complain too much. However, I believe they can improve on their customer service and being attentive to the customers.

    « family visit »

    I recommend this hotel to anyone who is in the area. You will be taken care of by the staff and manager very well and they are friendly and very nice. The hotel is nice and clean and comfortable. The hotel is booked a year in advance on the third weekend of October for a honory Bronc Ride. It is for a scholarship for college in the honor a boy that was killed while riding a bronc and his mother puts this on every year.

    We stay at this facility every year on our way to New Mexico for vacation. Dependably clean and great included breakfast! The staff will take care of anything that is out of sorts, cheerfully and quickly!

    « Best Western - Post »

    This hotel is about 30 minutes away from Lubbock and is a very nice backup when Lubbock hotels are full for football games, orientation, etc. They don't seem to hike their prices up like the Lubbock hotels do for busy times. I have stayed here several times and am sure I will again. This past stay wasn't the best experience but it has been much better other times so maybe it was just an off visit.

    « First impression is good »

    The employees are very good and helpful. The room was clean and quite. I did have to call the desk and ask for shower curtain. The breakfast is about the same for all Best Western's. Just have to add the pool is green

    « August 2016 »

    Clean and comfortable. It was also quite. Other than low water pressure from the shower head, there were no issues. The breakfast was basic - cereal, juice, scrambled eggs, biscuits, waffles, and sweet rolls. This is probably the best place to stay in Post Texas.

    « Nice accommodations but double check what they have charged you »

    Stopped here after a long day on the road and staff was great about setting me up with a room. Clerk at the front desk even asked about AAA membership so she could give me the best rate, quoted me $47.00 before taxes. Room was clean and comfortable and the morning breakfast was good. Ice machines were out of order. I always ask for a receipt when I check out but for some reason I didn't this morning. Discovered a couple of days later that they had charged me $78, plus taxes, instead of the quoted $47.

    « Best manager »

    Jessica the manager at post inn is the person to deal with in any situation. DO NOT GO WITH EXPEDIA. she helped us out and refunded our money even though it was expedia who messed up. We ended up with a smoking room at 2am and being a non smoker it was a rough night. People r kind there....that makes the difference.

    « Relatively Trustworthy Stop at end of Long Driving Day »

    Front desk and cleaning staff super nice and helpful, decor in room dated and some of room dirty, no exercise room because they shut it down, the usual breakfast with high carbs and bacon and eggs and juice and coffee. Not much around the immediate area, grounds ok and also looked like they had full hookups available for rv's and such.

    « Room not cleaned for checkin »

    Required desk attendant to provide clean bedding. Carpet had not been vacuumed and bathroom appliances were not very clean. Tried and rejected an alternate room (smoking) which smelled like cigarettes smoke. Desk attendant was apologetic and helpful.

    « Dirty water and rude manager »

    Last month, on a move from California to Austin, Texas our family dog was lost 50 miles north of Lubbock and after two days of exhaustive searching for him, we unfortunately found him dead on the side of the road. Naturally, we were in no shape to drive 7+ hours to Austin, where we needed to meet the moving trucks the next morning. Instead we opted to drive about 100 miles and stay at the Best Western in Post, TX. We were a caravan of two cars with my wife and I, our three year old daughter and an elderly woman. My wife, child and the grandmother checked in ahead of me getting there. On that check-in, the front desk was supposed to mention the "boil notice" - which means you can't drink the water without boiling it first. This is likely due to all the fracking activity in and around Post. To make matters worse, they also didn't offer us any clean drinking water. The next morning, while checking out, my wife noticed the small sign at the front desk about the boil notice. When she spoke to the manager, her reply was "everyone in Post knows about the boil notice". Great. We've never been to Post before. How on earth would we know? Needless to say, she was pretty rude. I had already left the hotel at 4am to meet the movers in Austin. My wife called me to tell me we had all been drinking water contaminated with bacteria all night. I became very angry and called the hotel and spoke with (likely) the same manager. How do I know? Because she was extremely rude and told me "well, if your wife could read signs, we wouldn't have had this problem!" Seriously? Is that how to you treat customers? Especially customers who are in a bad way like we were. And customers with small children no less. We decided to take the matter up with Best Western's corporate office. After a couple of days they came back to tell us that the front desk girl who did not alert us to the grey sewage water we were drinking or offer us clean drinking water was fired. That's nice. I drove back up that way 5 days later to go and pick up my deceased dog's carcass and stopped by the Post Inn to maybe talk about getting the two rooms we purchased refunded. It would have been the "cool" thing to do. I did notice that the hotel had the boil notices on the doors entering the facility and all throughout the lobby. I was not able to speak to someone who could help me at that time but I was somewhat happy that at least they were disclosing the situation upfront. After a few more calls to corporate they told us that each hotel is independently owned and operated and if we wanted a refund we had to take it up with The Post Inn. So we want back to them and once again they were rude and denied us our money back because allegedly we spilled wine on one of the bedsheets. I gave all parties involved plenty of time to do the right thing. But now I'm here to tell my story. We live in a world now where the customer IS always right. I think especially in the case where we ended up drinks water that had dangerous bacteria in it. The manager of the Post Inn clearly does not care about the well being of their customers. If I were you, I'd find another place to stay far, far away from this town with the dirty water.

    « Great stop between Lubbock and Sweetwater »

    This is a convenient hotel while traveling. There is ample parking, even truck and RV. The rooms are clean and the A/C works. The free internet is a plus. The breakfast is good and the coffee is hot. There was a vending machine for snacks on site, but out of order. The beverage vending machine looked like it was working.

    4
    « Unexpected stop »

    After a flat tire, we could not continue our trip home and had to spend the night in Post. This hotel was a pleasant surprise. The room was clean and had all of the necessary amenities. The only negative was that the sheets on one bed were worn so badly you could see through them in spots. Breakfast was good, especially the crispy bacon. Check-in was friendly and quick.

    3
    « Mostly Mediocre »

    The room was mostly clean and mostly comfortable, except for terrible pillows and stray hairs in the shower. Breakfast was good. Biscuits and gravy, eggs, waffles, and pancakes. Our stay was decent, but not a place I'd want to visit again. Be sure to get a room away from the ice machine and vending machines. They can be quite loud at 5:00 am.

    « BOIL WATER!!! »

    Just checked in, the motel is under a boil water order and has been for more than 2 weeks!!! They don't tell you when you make a reservation (even if you are a platinum member). The desk clerk had no idea when the order will be lifted. They gave us bottled water to brush our teeth, said it was OK to shower and make coffee, but she didn't know the difference between a chair and a loveseat. The place is not worth taking chances.

    « On my favorites list »

    I travel frequently by car between Taos, NM and Rockport, TX. I've stayed in some motels I'd rather forget, and I've stayed in a few that were so impressive. The Best Western Post Inn is one of my favorites on my "impressive" list. Its clean, everything works, the bed is comfortable, the shower drains just fine, there is good water pressure, they allow pets and the breakfast is quite good with a good selection. I'll stay here often in the future. Thanks Post Inn for a great stay! Looking forward to more.

    « Comfortable Value »

    We arrived and were greeted by a friendly and knowledgable hostess. She quickly checked us in and answered all our questions. We had stayed here several times before because it is a pet-friendly establishment and is halfway between our TX home and CO. They do have wifi but we found the signal strength too low for use. We travel with a trailer and their huge parking lot easily accomodates it. Their beds are comfortable, rooms are clean and the breakfast was plentiful and well-organized. I can't imagine needing more amenities and their rates are pretty good for a BW.

    « Great comfortable stay »

    Only stayed for one night passing through town. Friendly staff and clean rooms. Pool was a little small and green but we were the only ones there so do-able. Small town feel and very nice lobby. Great location and quiet. make sure the curtains are closed as the outside lights are bright.

    « Excellent for the money »

    It seems to me Best Western hotels and motels have improved their quality and reliability in recent year. I have traveled extensively in the US over the last 50 years. I look for quality at an inexpensive price and reliable quality at different chain locations. This Best Western at Post and the others I have stayed at in the last couple of years meet those criteria quite well.

    « Owner should not be able to have a franchise »

    Considering this is a franchise hotel it was a huge let down to say the least. The employees were great considering that they had to work in a sweat box. The public areas of this hotel were as hot as the temp.outside. Staff had no towels for the guest, pool was green. The suite was clean and cool inside. The brand "Best Western" should check out this franchise because it was a disgrace to the company.

    « Great property, very clean and awesome staff! »

    Great staff even better house keepers! Very clean!!! Horrible ownership stayed bi weekly for 2 months and hallway/ lobby/ breakfast Ac did not work was told it was being fixed and after 2 months it hasn't been touched best western get your independent owners to fix equipment will not stay there it's unbearable me and other guest as well think it's ridiculous to pay 100$ for a hotel that's hotter inside then it is outside

    « Horrible! »

    I would like to state it is a nice hotel with wonderful morning staff, housekeepers do a outstanding job as I stay bi weekly for business renting 4+ rooms. but considering driving to Lubbock. hall way and lobby are extremely hot!!!!! it's unbearable to eat breakfast at 7 am it was 80 degrees. I was told it is being worked on but after a month it still has not! Great staff great hotel horrible owner ship! Get your a/c fixed

    « Pleasant and helpful staff, nice rooms »

    Very friendly staff and nice, clean rooms. The Hotel was clean and the decor was nice. We stay here every year on our way south and would not consider anywhere else to stay. This Hotel is well situated on the main highway in the town and is easy to find.

    « Great Little Motel »

    Common areas and room were clean. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Would stay here again while travelling through northwest Texas. The beds were too firm for my tastes. NOTE: Confusing pet policy. They assign pets to rooms marked as no pets. They claim two highly different pet fees: $22 for smoking rooms and $75 for non smoking rooms. Signage and policy errors need revision. I would never pay $75 for one pet night, nor would I ever stay in a smoking room. Truck parking area had sign stating "Full RV Hookups". I saw numerous 15 amp 110 outlets, but never saw any 30 or 50 amp outlets, nor any water or sewage outlets. That is not a full hookup in any RVers mind.

    « The only place to stay anytime. »

    When the desk clerk will let you use there cell phone to call home because your cell phone has no service. To me that is going above the call of duty. Then she suggested I turn off my phone then turn it back on. Then the phone had service. This is why I stay at Best Western Hotels. Thank you Best Western Hotels, For all that you do for us weary travelers. R. L. Siegel

    « Average Best Western »

    I recently stayed here while traveling through Texas. I arrived in the middle of a dust storm, so I was immediately restricted to my room. The room was big and the bed comfortable. However the ice machine was noisy, right outside my door, and the light in my entry flickered even when turned off. There is nothing special about this hotel, but I would stay here again if necessary.

    « Just ok »

    I spent one night at the hotel to attend a funeral. I had requested a second floor room away from ice machine, etc. so it would be quiet. I had a first floor room overlooking a busy highway, next to an entrance door and almost next to the ice and vending machines. Very noisy. Room was fairly clean but very dark/drab. Staff at check in was very nice. I inquired about paying for late check out the next day because of timing of the funeral. I was told that she would note it and go ahead and charge it to which I agreed. The next day when I went to check out at a few minutes after 1pm, the clerk was almost rude in asking me if I had informed someone that I would be checking out late. I assured her that I had and that the account was supposed to already be billed for it. When she checked it was billed but apparently the information was not passed on to housekeeping and the staff for that day. After midnight the night of my stay I heard water running in the bathroom, enough that it sounded like someone had turned the shower on. When I got up to look, there was a water fall coming out of the shower enclosure around the shower head. I called the front desk to let them know. I was informed that they did not have a different room to move me to. However, no one came to look at this leak. I was relieved when it finally stopped and the room was quiet again. Just in case this was not passed on, I mentioned it to the clerk when I was checking out. I was told that the "drip" had been entered into the system and she would take the $20 late check out fee off of my bill. I appreciate this but not the fact that I was treated like I was trying to get something for free and don't know the difference between a possible leak and a "drip." I wish I had thought to video the waterfall that night. Hopefully this gets checked into before it becomes worse and damages inside the wall or the floor because it is likely coming from the room above. Overall, this is an ok place to stay if you are overnighting in Post but some of the customer service attitude could use improvement.

    « Disgusting »

    We were on our way to Lubbock and though we would spend the night here to relax and have a leisurely ride in the AM. We booked a room online at this hotel chose the only room left. Two queens in a smoking room. We arrived and the smell in the room of the smoke was overpowering but that was not all. The floor, bedspreads, curtains and furniture are extremely worn. The towels were so thin from wear you could almost see through them. The toilet paper is thin and only 3 squares were left on the roll. The sheets on the bed do not fit right. I'm not sure all the rooms are as bad as this one but make sure you stay away from room 224.

    « Very tired good stop »

    Recently in the area late at night and made a decision to stay here based on trip advisor review instead of driving on to next town. Glad that we did. The hotel has a very nice front desk staff and they were attentive. Nice room , ac worked, continental breakfast got us down the road.

    « Pleasantly suprised »

    Post is a very small town and few options for Motels. Our last stay was at a different Motel and that was not a great experience and was over priced. This Best Western was beautiful, comfortable, affordable and friendly staff. Thank you for making it a pleasant experience.

    « Great Best western for smaller town »

    This best western is not one of the newer ones, but it is definitely well kept and maintained for your comfort. Our room had 2 huge queen size beds with 4 large nice pillows. The carpet and bathroom, was as clean as I have seen anywhere. They have a great breakfast in the morning for you also. There is a generous selection, and it is really good. Plan on staying here everytime we come thru Post which will be more frequent now.

    I stayed with my two kids on the way to New Mexico. I was pleasantly surprised by the appearance of the hotel--it looks practically new. Nice sized rooms, comfortable beds and a clean bathrooms. Great complimentary breakfast--waffles, biscuits, gravy, eggs, cereal, fruit, etc. Fantastic value.

    « What can I say, It is a Best Western. »

    This hotel has the feeling of having been there for awhile. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The property was nice and plenty of parking. The front desk help was awesome. The only drawback was the breakfast. I did not get the same freshness I am use to at a Best Western. Other than that I like it very much.

    « Oasis in Oil and Cotton Country »

    I stayed in this hotel for 5 nights on a business trip this past week. The folks at the reception desk are always very friendly and helpful. I stayed on the 2nd floor in a quiet room. The area has the "smell of money", as there are active oil wells being pumped all around. The interior of the hotel did not have the same odor, which I appreciated. Breakfast choices included a choice of cereals, yogurt, juices, pastries, scrambled eggs, sausage or bacon, biscuits and gravy and make-your-own waffles, with coffee or milk to wash it all down. I have stayed in other motels/hotels in rural Texas, and this one is great!

    « Very nice! »

    Post, Texas, is certainly not on the "beaten path." So it was a very pleasant surprise to find this nicely appointed motel there. Room was clean and updated; lobby and grounds were well kept. Breakfast offered a hot egg item and biscuits with sausage gravy, plus more.. A very pleasant experience.

    « Returning to Texas »

    Excellent..if anyone has traveled through Texas, you know how huge our state is and what a sight for sore eyes a hotel is when your eyes can no longer stay open. The Best Western in Post, Texas was just what we needed. Great price, pet friendly, big clean and comfy beds.

    « Stay here! »

    I wanted to stop between Sweetwater and Lubbock on a multi-day trip. This property is a gem in the desert! Even with my cat, we stayed in an enormous, comfortable, we'll appointed room for under $90! The breakfast was the usual fare, but fully laid out, not skimpy, even though the property was quite empty the night we stayed. The town has a fun surprise as it's name origin, but I don't want to spoil it here.

    « Very Nice! »

    This Best Western is a very nice place to stay. We had a non-smoking/non-pet room, and it was clean and nicely decorated. The bed was very comfortable and the pillows were amazing! The only bad thing that I would have to say is that the eggs that were served for breakfast were pretty much tasteless. No flavor at all. But, the waffles were Wonderful!!

    « My Stay at Best Western »

    Overall it was a good experience during my stay at the hotel. The only complaint I have is with the slow internet service at the hotel. I recommend you provide faster internet service in the future. Room was clean, and breakfast service was good. Location of hotel was good, and easy to access from the roadway.

    As usual we enjoyed our stay at Best Western. They always have a hot breakfast and never have to wait to eat. Food already prepared to eat. The room was clean and tidy.

    This hotel, for a small town was wonderful, staff was outstanding, the room was HUGH, very clean, sits right on 84 coming out of Lubbock headed to Austin, VERY busy, but no HWY noise because of the way the rooms are laid out. Post, very historical town, must visit the Post Museum, home of Post Cereal. I will definetly be going back and stay in that Best Western, just ask and they can tell you where to go and what to do. All the staff was super.

    « Dependable & Clean »

    This Best Western is a regular visit for us. It is always clean, the rooms are large and the breakfast is more than adequate. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The air conditioning was not working properly but we called downstairs and within 5 minutes, it had been reset. We slept well and it was very quiet.

    We were in town for my husband's 50th high school reunion. There are only 2 good hotels in the small town. We were very satisfied with our stay. Every thing was clean. The breakfast was good. There were bacon, sausage, eggs, waffles, etc. They could have used more seating in the breakfast area, but the hotel was full due to the reunion & a nearby college game. The beds were comfy. No complaints.
