    « Nice Best Western »

    This is located on Interstate 35 and is convenient to any place in Temple. The hotel is nice and the rooms are quite and large. The rates are good. The breakfast is very good and offers more than Continental Breakfast. They keep it well stock so you always can choose what you want. The location and price make this a good place to stay.

    « Great Room »

    The room was clean, modern, and well-kept. It was a last minute trip, and we did not have reservations. I had never stayed at a BW and was nervous, but it was great. We will stay again if ever in the area again.

    « Nice place! »

    We just stayed one night in Temple on our way to Magnolia Market in Waco. It was clean, had a hot, free breakfast with waffles and wi fi. So, all the basics. Looks like it recently had a face lift with vibrant colors and large flat screen too. Only problem was, they still had wall A/C units and they were louder than usual.

    « Best place to stay in Temple »

    There are many choices to stay in Temple, TX but there is none better then this Best Western. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The breakfast is always hot, good and plentiful. Whether you are passing through, touring the city or a patient at the VA you will never find anywhere that will feel more at home then this hotel.

    our air conditioner died and we spent 7 nights at this hotel. the staff was kind and concerned about our problem. Manager gave us the best rate he could under the circumstances. The only thing I didn't like was the noisy fan in the bathroom. good job to everyone. Oh, the breakfast area and food were well prepared.

    « Very pleasant stay! »

    The hotel is off the freeway. It is imaculate. So clean and super nice staff. The beds are incredible. Breakfast was a hot one and it had cereal, yogurt, waffle, eggs, sausage, coffee and juice. Would stay again.

    « 1 night stay »

    I requested a non-smoking room. Though it was a non-smoking room, it smelled like a smoker's room anyway. It was also very noisy and difficult to sleep through the night without hearing outdoor traffic and neighbors.

    « Great place to stay »

    Great place to stay. Very friendly environment, the clerk went out of her way to help us out. Property and rooms were very clean. I would comeback and stay at the facility again. The price I paid for what I got was a great value.

    Superb staff and very friendly service, rooms were clean and comfortable with microwave and refrigerator. Breakfast was awesome in the morning. I go through here once a month and this is where I am staying from now on.

    « Decent Place to Stay »

    We stopped in late, alot of the hotels in Temple were sold out, This Best Western was clean, comfy, the air conditioner blew cold, the curtains kept that morning sun out. Bathroom goodies included Shampoo, Conditioner, Facial Towelette, shower cap, and lotion. The bed was a little firm, however still achieved good sleep, the front desk man was welcoming, and very nice. The morning there was coffee, and simple food for continental breakfast.

    « Well Run Hotel »

    I make frequent trips to Temple, and I always stay at this Best Western. The employees are wonderful, and Mike, the manager, wants to make sure that people are happy with his hotel. He responds quickly to concerns. The construction on I-35 makes it look like the hotel is hard to get to, but it's not. The breakfast is good, and the upgrades to the WiFi have made it stable.

    « Family Wedding »

    I would highly recommend this motel. The air conditioning was excellent. The bed was very comfortable. This is by far one of the cleanest, friendliest, and quiet places we have ever stayed. The whole building including our room and the outdoor swimming pool were absolutely pristine!! There is an elevator to upper floors. They offer free breakfast. We overslept the second morning & missed breakfast but the very friendly & gracious front desk person offered us bananas! There is a small gift shop where you can purchase snacks, drinks & health & hygiene products.

    « Convenient location »

    This hotel was close to the freeway so was in a convenient location. It was also next door to the Texas Roadhouse restaurant so we didn't have to get out in traffic and could just walk to the restaurant. The breakfast in the hotel was good and is similar to most Best Western hotel breakfasts. The staff were not very friendly, but they may have just been stressed out from a busy graduation weekend in town. The hotel was pretty quiet except you could hear train horns from time to time. The beds were ok, but they were a bit firmer than I would have preferred.

    « Always our first choice »

    We were to attend a church meeting in Waco, but all the close hotels were booked due to graduation at Baylor. Temple is only 30 miles away and on the interstate, so the choice was easy. Best Western had rooms at great prices. As usual the staff was super friendly and very efficient at check in. We even got a discount voucher for Texas Roadhouse, which was next door.

    Hotel was clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again. It was a good value for the money we paid. Easy access to the Interstate highway. While the staff wasn't overly friendly, they weren't rude and were very accommodating.

    « A nice place to stay »

    We stayed here in October and I thought one of the staff members was impolite. This time she was fine and we had a good stay. The rooms are big, comfortable, and clean, with microwaves, refrigerators, coffee makers, a nice breakfast, and free wifi. The pillows are somewhat hard for my taste but my husband really likes them. This is a nice hotel and a good value.

    « Clean Hotel, Wonderful Staff »

    This hotel was amazing! Everyone from checkout to breakfast to maid staff was very friendly and helpful. The inside and outside of the hotel is beautifully maintained, as well as beautiful spacious rooms. I really enjoyed my stay. There is a full hot breakfast, with many different options available.

    « Best Western Hotel in Temple, TX »

    The hotel was very clean and quiet. It is a good value for the money, and I would definitely stay here again. The present road construction on I-35 is the only drawback. The staff was courteous, and the breakfast was more than adequate. The location is near several restaurants and shopping centers.

    « Great stay »

    Over all a great hotel. The staff was caring and helpful, there was easy access to the highway even with all the construction and the rooms were clean and comfortable. It was priced much more affordable that Belton, where our tournament was being held.

    Getting to the hotel was difficult beause of heavy construction on the highway 35. Staff was pleasant and helpful . Because of being handicapped it was difficult opening entranceway door one was automatic but the other was manual which caused a problem trying to push luggage through.

    « Nice Stay »

    The hotel was nice and a good value. I like hotels that give you lots of pillows and this one does. Everything was fine with our stay. We stayed in January 2016 and there is a lot of frontage road construction in the area. It wasn't loud when we were there (during the week) but at some point it may become a problem. We would stay there again. They have a nice breakfast bar in the morning.

    My husband is a Viet Nam veteran with vascular issues. The VA sent him to the Temple hospital for his problems. We have stayed at this Best Western a number of times. The staff has been caring and helpful making my time so much easier. The rooms are always top notch. Whether you are stay for business of pleasure I wouldn't stay any where else.

    « Best WSestern Temple TX »

    Visited last week for 5 days. From the moment we walked in, the smell of CLEAN and FRESH made us smile. Everything clean and in it's place. Great, clean, large, comfortable room and bathroom. Found a light bulb out on one of the lamps. Dialed 0 and within 3 minutes he was up and replacing it. DONE. The WHOLE staff, from the front desk to the Chambermaid (housekeeping) were absolutely outstanding. Friendly, professional, greeting us every time, and helpful. Mike called me by name from day one and every time thereafter "Good morning Mr. R". Very helpful with directions on where was the closest store, exit to take to get to a place quicker, etc.. The young lady taking care of the morning breakfast area was a busy bee. She was non-stop making sure everything was just right. Coffee and all the supplies, food, tables... reminded me my military service and when we were getting ready for inspections! Never saw her sit still, always doing something to keep it all ship shape! The construction work on I-35 was no issue to us. I would've walked across the highway to get back to the hotel. We were very pleased. Comfortable in every way. Free Wifi was a plus! Did I mention immaculate, CLEAN rooms? Bravo! Great job! Will book there next time I go to the area! My new Home away from home!

    « Nice stay despite construction-based bad Highway access »

    We stayed at this Best Western (two adults, three small children) while visiting family in Temple. We were given a room with two queen beds. The staff was very nice and gave us a good room right by an entrance, so it was easy to come and go, and also far enough from other guests so we didn't have to worry about our kids' noise bothering them. The beds were quite comfortable and we got decent sleep there. Breakfast was good, as they provided eggs and breakfast meats along with fresh waffles. As with most hotels, the tea selection was lousy (I am a bit of a tea snob), but from what my wife said, the coffee was good. The one issue with this location is that there is major construction on I-35 that makes it very difficult to get into the hotel (it's not the hotel's fault, so no points off for that). The only restaurant within walking distance is a Texas Roadhouse, which is only open in the afternoon, so you'll have to find your lunch elsewhere.

    « Thank you »

    Thank you for the wonderful experience! My wife and were stuck in traffic and pulled over to this hotel the day after on a very busy Sunday. The check in was easy and the Front desk agent was great. My wife had gotten car sick and he offered us water, snacks, etc to help her feel better. Thank you.

    High quality facility and staff. Clean Clean Clean. AND great food for breakfast! Will plan continued use on all our trips. Look forward to using the Rewards Program! Thank you ! Calling the #800 for reservations and using online reservations worked very well.

    « Quiet refuge during the storm »

    We stayed here on our way to Galveston. Tropical Depression Patricia was raging so we were exhausted from the drive. What a beautiful place to take shelter! Our suite was one large room with a super comfy bed (and I'm very picky about the bed), a nice couch for relaxing and a great bathroom. Room was immaculately clean. Although the hotel is near a busy freeway, we heard NO traffic noise.

    « GREAT STAY EVERYTIME »

    I always enjoy staying at this property. Friendly staff. There has been road construction in the area over the last couple of years that I've stayed here. Of course this is not anything the hotel has control over, but I must say that it is worth taking the time to find your way in.

    « Nice Hotel by Freeway »

    Convenient hotel by the freeway. We were passing thru on our way from Winnipeg to Texas. Breakfast at the hotel was hot and had a usual Best Western selection. There is a restaurant (Texas Roadhouse) within 100 yards. This was convenient for travellers that were passing thru and meant that it was not necessary to drive somewhere to get food. We would stay here again.

    « On our way home »

    End of the week long trip we were tired and just wanted a nice place to rest for the night. Construction made it a pain to get into the parking lot, (when have you been on I35 without construction!) but it was quite, large rooms, and the beds were great!!!

    « Temple Review »

    The staff was very good, hotel clean and kept up well. The breakfast was good. Rooms were nice and housekeeping did a nice job. Stayed one night, would probably stay here again. The bed was quite comfortable, pillows nice (maybe a little too firm).

    « Hotel Owners & Staff are Top Notch ! »

    The staff treats you like family - always going above and beyond to be sure your stay is the best that it can be. Hotel is constantly being improved. Worth dealing with all the construction to stay at this hotel.

    « I DO IT here regularly »

    Except for the construction our front on the frontage road, there's really nothing to complain about when it comes to the accommodations at this hotel. The rooms are spacious, clean and well equipped. The breakfast is hot and has a variety of breads, fruits, cereals and hot items as well. The coffee dispenser is one of those new fangled gadget type ideas that is more of a hassle than just making an old fashioned cup of coffee but the friendly staff and the quality of the hotel makes up for that. Fitness room, Swimming pool, and a good channel selection on the TV's in the rooms also adds a big plus. Refrigerators and microwaves in the rooms as well.

    « Cleanliness and Rewards »

    There needs to be more attention to cleanliness especially in bathrooms. I don't like finding hair on the bathroom floor or in the bathtub. I even found a used wash cloth hanging over shower curtain rod on one of my stays. There should be reward points no matter what the rate is. I was told I was not eligible for points because our corporate rate is too low. Not a good selling point for their rewards system.

    « Great place to stay--Best Western Hotels are so predictable -- always a good experience! »

    Very nice front desk staff--evening and morning. Although we did not eat there, the breakfast looked good. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have had in a long time. Best Western is always clean, polite, efficient. That's why it's always our first choice.

    « Nice room, with a couple of problems »

    We had a great room at this hotel---large, clean, and attractive with every amenity, including a refrigerator and microwave. There are a couple of reasons I can't rate it higher, however. The pillows were terrible for me. I spent a sleepless night because my neck was so uncomfortable. This may not be the case for you, however. My husband had no problem and I notice that other TA reviewers actually complimented the pillows. The other problem was the staff member who checked us in. She acted as if we were bothering her when we arrived. We felt really unwelcome. Then a few minutes later, she changed her demeanor, as if she suddenly remembered that she was in the hospitality business. She had a nice smile! But after initially treating us with contempt, it was hard to believe her new friendliness was sincere.

    « always a good stay »

    We come to this area at least twice a year with a large group for a one or two night stay. We always choose the Best Western in Temple. The price, service, quality, and rooms are excellent. We reccommend it to everyone.

    « Good Value »

    Due to road construction this hotel probably receives very little walk-in reservations. That's a shame because it was a bargain for the price per night. Was in good condition and staff was friendly and courteous. Seemed like a fairly new hotel. I recommend it.

    « Hotel is o.k. but couldn't swim here »

    Our stay a this hotel was pleasant. Except, we chose this hotel largely because it had a seemingly nice hotel pool and pool area. We even picked a hotel where we could stop early on our trip so we could swim. We checked in (staff was nice but nothing special), got to our room (nice) and then went to the pool - mistake! The pool was basically unusable. The water was so murky, you couldn't see the bottom of the pool. If you are ever at any chlorine pool that you can't see the bottom of it, don't go in!! It is dangerous on many levels - bacteria (lots of it) and danger to not see someone on the bottom. When we called, we were told (very indignantly) they would keep the status of the pool "available" even though there was noone to tend to the issue. Then, we decided to just sit out for a bit. But, there were cigarette butts everywhere. Apparently, this is the unofficial smoking area and that part of it is not maintained - many of these were old cigarette butts. Bad experience. So, we spent the whole afternoon/evening in the room. Bummer! The next morning we had sausage and biscuits. And, I do want to say that their biscuits were much better than most hotel biscuits - they were actually soft, fluffy and good. This is a hotel that I would have considered staying at in the winter except for the harshness of the staff when we called. For that reason, I would not stay at this hotel again.

    5
    « Pleasure trip »

    Even though it was difficult to get to the hotel due to construction, it was well worth it. Any hotel at which you stay along this stretch of I35 is going to be difficult to get to due to construction in Temple which is supposed to last for another 2 years. Personnel were friendly and helpful. Will stay here again when we return to the area.
