Best Western Plus
I enjoyed my stay to the fullest. Casey was amazing! They were having elevator difficulties, but everyone made sure we had everything we needed. The breakfast was fantastic! Made my mornings very enjoyable. The pool was very clean. We ended up staying in the pool for about 4 hours. There were ample pool towels and seating. We enjoyed every aspect of our stay. The lobby was very clean and smelled great. The outside landscape was so beautiful. The pool area was very neat and tidy. Our room was very large and we had plenty of space in the room for all of our luggage and ourselves!! We didn't bump into each other like some hotel rooms. These were very spacious and luxurious! The sheets smelled so nice. The room smelled of citrus when we walked in. Made me think we went somewhere tropical! Thanks for our very enjoyable stay! Will stay on our next visit to Center!!!
One of the most miserable nights of my life. The pillows were huge causing my neck to be at an odd angle. The sheets were very rough. Don't know if they were very worn or just poor quality.....maybe both. The desk chair was very worn and shabby looking. We were unable to get the tv to turn off and finally had to unplug it. The building overall could have been a lot cleaner. Dirt and dust near the baseboards was obvious and the dining area did not have that spic and span look that some hotels manage to keep. They need to work on their housekeeping. Oh, and when we arrived there and went to our room, someone else's shoes were outside the door in the hallway. We had to go back to the desk and ask for another room. There are nicer places to stay in Center.

If you would like to speak to me about this matter, please don't hesitate to contact me. - Casey
We've stayed at this Best Western many times in the last year and we always appreciate the cleanliness, service, professionalism, and the overall hospitality of this location. Casey and the other employees go out of their way to make sure we are comfortable and feel at home.
Good clean rooms very good breakfast and courteous staff highly recommend. Will be back again many times it's always a pleasure to say there every time we come. I stay there 10 to 30 days a year the front desk staff is excellent
Very clean hotel. Comfortable room, great bed! Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Breakfast was really good and the staff was helpful. Staff took time to engage the guest during my time in the lobby and breakfast area.
Nowhere else I would rather stay The hotel is well kept and maintained to the high standards they rooms are extremely reasonable and quite spacious the amenities are all in outstanding shape the fact that there are smoking rooms available is a major plus all the staff tax special Pride and care in their work there is no place I would rather stay
The hotel was clean and affordable. It was close to food and shopping in the area. The staff was nice and breakfast was good. We were here for a basketball tournament. Only stayed one night but would stay again.
We always choose Best Western when we travel to Center, TX. This location has the best staff of any hotel we have used during our travels. The staff is extremely kind, caring and accommodating! They go above and beyond!I highly recommend this hotel!
The service is great service, breakfast bar so good and always kept replenished, and rooms are always clean. Staff goes out of their way to make you feel at home. A very safe environment whether you are staying alone or with a group.
This hotel has exceptional service. The staff is extremely helpful and kind. The location of the hotel is very convenient. The price is lower than other comparable hotels in the area. We would highly recommend this hotel.
This was a great family trip. Amazing hotel and staff. Absolutely love Best Western Center. My family loved the breakfast and request to stay at this location every time we make this trip. The staff are great!!
Staff very helpful and I do plan to stay at Best Westerns on my next trip across country. It pays to be a rewards member. I would like to have had a variety of milk cartons to choose from at breakfast but other than that all was a great experience.
This was such a small town, so every place we went to was going to stand out. This place put some of the places in big cities we've been in, to shame. I can't remember the last time I actually chose to stay at a Best Western but like I said this place was awesome. We had a king bed with pullout couch. The bed was comfortable, this pillows were soft and firm. The air conditioner worked perfect and the bathroom was nice and big. We got in super late but had no problems getting in. When we got ready to check out the front desk was fast and friendly. Even told us their local Sheriff's grandson was on TV and to vote. Goooooo Cole!! We appreciated hotel and even the waffles were in the shape of Texas ( and delicious)! Thanks for everything!!
Exceptionally clean room. I am very very picky about clean and this place did not disappoint; from the common areas to the room itself there was not a smudge, stain or stray particle of dust to be found. The room was decorated in a trendy style although a little dark for finding things in your suitcase. Staff were not just helpful and professional but also friendly and kind. Mattress was average but towels and sheets missed the mark when they felt a little scratchy. The free breakfast was good and overall it was a better than expected stay and I would stay here again. Room had a fridge, microwave, hairdryer, iron and coffeepot. It was a first floor room with very quick and easy access to our vehicle. Again, very very clean room.
I had one of the best experiences at this hotel. Staff is probably the best that I've ever had with any hotel. Rooms are large, beds comfortable and the hotel is clean. I would recommend staying here anytime!
Nice hotel, appears to be fairly new. Comfortable & quite. Staff was very professional. Beds were great. It was a busy weekend for them but everything was relatively quiet. It would be nice if they had a relationship with their local restaurants for referrals & offered discounts
We spent two nights at this hotel, and were very happy with our choice. We were there for a family reunion and two other sets of cousins also stayed and were satisfied. I had scrambled eggs and one sausage patty for breakfast. The food was hot and the coffee good. The king room was large and the bed very comfortable. We would definitely stay there again.
Very impressed with this motel . If in this direction again we will definitely stop again ! We stay in a motel at least 20 nights a month and this has beat them all ! Their breakfast was wonderful ! Bacon sausage eggs biscuits gravy oatmeal two flavors waffles muffins bagels toast 4 cereals !
The staff members were very accommodating. The rooms were up to date, well decorated, and clean. The next morning we had breakfast at the hotel. They had variety. I think my favorite is the juice. lol
This is an excellent hotel. The price is very reasonable. The staff is extremely helpful & caring. They always go above & beyond in meeting guest needs. We stay here several times eacch year & would highly recommend it!
After a day on the motorcycles we stopped in Center. This BW was a great value, helpful staff, deceant nights sleep. Seemed relatively new. Breakfast was hot in the AM. Center isn't a big town so finding a brand name hotel in east TX was a good thing! I'd have no issue staying here again.
Hotel had subtle differences over other local hotels we checked out that made the experience better. i.e. nicer lobby, more convenient breakfast area, faster internet, more spacious room, better decor, etc... The biggest difference was the service. the 4 or 5 people we got to interact with were genuinely interested in helping. The last thing worth mention was the price. Not sure why their price was considerably lower than nearby hotels but it definitely had nothing to do with their amenities or quality.
The room was okay, someone kept dropping something on the floor either above us or beside us. The next morning I got up to take a shower and there was no water at the shower. Would not recommend at least room 204.
Very nice hotel and staff very friendly, very accommodating for all the kids and needs for the families staying here. Breakfast was great and they have 24hr coffee!! Pool is very nice. Nice fitness area. Really close to restaurants and stores.
only complaint was our room did not get cleaned next day so we had no clean towels or sheets and trash cans was full. Breakfast and front desk staff was awesome!! Hotel was packed for Regional Baseball tournament
Clean from the outside but pull the sheets back and your in for a surprise!!!! Hair everywhere!!! How nasty is that. That definitely is not my hair, my husband or my son's hair. Thats enough to not even give this place a STAR. I'm a clean person the cleans the room and Lysol the entire room before touching anything. Addressed the issue with staff and they said sorry. The blanket even had a brown substance on it. The lights flickered all night. Have videos of everything but only able to post pictures. I had a late check out when we checked in, but when I complained last night and this morning Robyn and another staff reported they usually charge for late check out which speaks volumes about small town penny pinching places. I stay in hotels quite often for business, work, and play and have never experienced any thing like this. Difference between the city and country. If I have a problem in the city they make it right!!!We did not sleep in the beds slept on air mattress and the towels were stained, in which I didn't complain because I don't use them anyway. STAY AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!! If you like filth this is the place to stay!!! They have some decent ratings is why I went here but maybe they didn't pull the sheet back and just got in bed!!!!

We are sorry to hear that your recent stay with us did not exceed your expectations. We appreciate your feedback and will use it to make improvements to offer guests a better experience in the future. We hope you will give us another chance and stay with us again. -Best Western Hotels & Resorts
Hotel was excellent, clean and very nice staff. Food was always fresh and good. Location was good lots of places to eat around. Gym and business center very good as well, will be returning soon. Has a pool too
I have stayed at this location many times, never have I been disappointed. I plan to stay again in September for Center homecoming activities. I would recommend this location to anyone staying in Center for business or pleasure.
This is a luxury hotel, in a small town, without the luxury price. This place is spic and span inside and out. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the hot breakfast is very good. Casey checked us in and Kandy checked us out. In between, they went out of their way to make us feel at home.
Comfortable room with all the amenities I could ask for. The hotel was close to dining. The staff was exceptional and seemed genuinely interested in making sure my stay was enjoyable. The free breakfast was good. I will be back!
With my job I travel every week. Most of the hotels I stay in (brand name) have a comfortable bed these days, but the breakfast is "iffy" depending on the hotel. This week I stayed at Best Western in Center, Texas. The breakfast was perfect. For once, the scrambled eggs were not dry, but juicy...not runny, juicy. The gravy was perfect and so was the sausage and biscuits. I found out who prepared the food and her name was Candy! So, if you're staying in Center, Texas, check out the Best Western. If Candy's cookin', then it should be tasty!
First impression when arriving was this will be a good place. It did not disappoint. All the staff we encountered during the stay were friendly and customer oriented. The room was clean and in good shape. The breakfast was very good and kept fresh. Will return when in the area.
My wife & I stayed @ this hotel for one night while traveling through the area, but we were very pleased it. It was clean & very well maintained. i would definitely recommend it & I personally look forward to staying there again next time we are in the area.
New Hotel was very clean and spacious rooms were great but the Staff was the best! Candy at the front desk was very helpful and accommodating and went above & beyond! Hopefully I will be back soon... Rodney D.
The entire experience and stay was outstanding and absolutely enjoyed by my family and I. The grounds were clean, manicured, and well maintained. The overall Building itself was clean and the lobby was pristine in appearance. Desk staff was professional in appearance and demeanor. The cleaning crew was friendly and professional. Room had an excellent appeal and the appearance and comfort exceeded my expectations. The pool area was nice and the vending machines were adequately stocked. It was a very pleasant stay.
Hard not to be pleased, very clean and fresh, modern and new with an above average breakfast. Went out of the way (Center vs. Nacagdoches) to stay here and it was worth the modest detour. From the Timber Frame entrance, the flowering landscaping, and cheerful staff, you won't regret your stay here. We didn't and couldn't have been more pleased with value received.
We stayed overnight, my husband, myself and two of our children. The hotel was quiet. We slept well and undisturbed. The hotel is newly built and everything looks so clean, nice, and new. They have a great complimentary breakfast. Belgian waffles, yogurt, cereal, danishes, muffins, chicken fried steak, biscuits, gravy, bacon, brisket, and a selection of juices. For a family of 4, the breakfast we had more than paid for the price of our room. Great value!
The service is great here! The staff is attentive to the customers. They work hard in keeping the hotel clean and functional. The breakfast is good and well maintained. The rooms are very nice looking. We stayed for pleasure but this hotel would definitely make an excellent place to stay for business. We look forward to returning.
We didn't have reservations and was only staying one night. The girl at check in treated us as if we were the most important guests she had. Friendly and helpful. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. Nice furnishings and lots of "extras" we didn't expect in a small town hotel. We ended up staying an extra night and would recomend this hotel to anyone.
The hotel is very clean and everyone is very friendly. The location is convenient to major thoroughfares, shopping, restaurants, and entertainment in the area. Only minutes from Center town square & popular businesses like Walmart, Tractor Supply, Whataburger, etc. It's a great value in historical small-town Texas.
This place is always nice. We stay here whenever working in the area. The staff are always friendly, the property is very nice and the rooms are comfy and clean. This is a small town, but there are a couple of places to eat close by. One sandwich chain nearby was one of the best sandwiches I've had in a long time. We will be back next time we are in the area.
I've stayed at this Best Western multiple times. Each time it has been great & such a value. Hotel staff is very friendly; rooms are nice size; linens are crisp; big bathroom counter for all my stuff. Breakfast is satisfactory. Will stay there again.
Our stay at this hotel was fantastic. We thought this hotel couldn't be more than a year old but found out it was five years old. Very clean rooms, great breakfast and comfortable beds. They staff was friendly and helpful. This will be our hotel of choice whenever we come to visit our family.

Thank you for taking the time to complete our survey we really appreciate your business and look forward to seeing you again
Firstly, one must realize their surroundings and adapt. For the area, this isn't a bad hotel, but it has some quirks. Like the elevator has to be the oldest and SLOWEST in history. There are serious waits for the elevator. Our coffee pot dad not have a lid, so we were unable to make coffee in our room. Other than those two items, it was an OK stay, the folks were nice who worked the desk. We kinda like BW because of their REWARDS PROGRAM. THis one didn't quite measure up to the BW Plus Hotels. Remember, this is just one opinion. Oh yeah, I almost forgot. THe TV sucked big time. Could only get about 6 stations.
Upon returning to our room for the night, there is no plug to stop the bath so Hubby goes to find one. After 40 minutes, he returns and tells me he had to go to our car, find a tool, and proceed to go to another room in which he was directed to, pull the drain out and bring it to our room. Why would any hotel let a guest do this? Not so relaxing. The bath was tight after that and worked well I must say, and the breakfast was lovely. Not the cleanest rooms ever, but they were OK.

My sincerest apologies for this incident and my late response. We have reviewed our appropriate maintenance policies with our hotel staff to avoid this situation in the future. We have maintenance personnel available 24x7 and our front desk should've contacted them instead of allowing this to happen. My sincerest apologies, Dale Whitewood Best Western PLus Center, Texas
the only problem we ran into was the card reader was broken on our door. it was very inconvenient to have to wait 15 minutes each time to get back into our room. but on the other hand our front desk lady (Paula) was amazing. Funny & Welcoming. she set the whole atmosphere for the hotel stay :)
I have stayed multiple times at the hotel in Center, Texas over the past few years (about 8 or 9 times each year)- the customer service has always been excellent and friendly, and on a first name basis. This is the most accommodating hotel I've ever stayed at- they really focus on the customer- whether it's a room request, breakfast request- you name it. Each morning, I regret having to get up so early for work & wish I could have a few more hours in their comfy beds. The AC has always worked (vital in Texas), the rooms are clean, the other guests are quiet, and the premises are very safe & welcoming. It's always been a great stay!
The hotel in center Gave Great service and I would stay again AT A Best Western Plus. The location was very good in an area close to many of the thing I needed to do. The service from all staff was very good. They did not get frustrated when confrounted with problems. The appearance of the hotel was all ways very in order, The meeting rooms was very net.
We went to visit family so we stayed here. The check-in was very smooth and the young lady that waited on us was extremely nice. We got the suite and it was the perfect size. The price was very, very reasonable. After dinner, we were able to bring family back to our room and visit in the sitting area. There was plenty of seating for the 6 of us. The hotel and room were both clean and everything looked new. Breakfast was good and there was a nice selection to choose from. If in Center, I recommend this hotel.
Our stay at this motel was excellent and very good value for money. The motel is very clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast area is large ad the food is well presented and the room we were allocated very clean and comfortable
Highly recommend this hotel!! The staff are very kind & helpful! We are always very pleased when we stay at this particular location. We choose this location at least three times every year. You will not be disappointed in choosing this hotel.
Book our stay here on TripAdvisor. Charges were kept to booking. We didn't have any hidden fees. During our stay the rooms were great. Clean, plenty of space. Didn't have any problems with provided wifi. Even brought our personal Roku device to watch favorite TV shows. Morning meals were fresh and hot. Staff allowed us to carry plates to the room for our children to keep from disturbing dining guests. Staff was very helpful ad courteous. No complaints from this visitor. We will be choosing Best Western again for our future travels.
Initial contact with staff checking in was great. Decent room and helpful advice. A great night sleep. Breakfast was not good at all! The night staff was asleep on the sofa in the guest area - fruit and other food stuff not available as it had not been purchased. Corn Dogs was option!? The gym area had not been cleaned - no towels, equipment that was not functioning etc. There is an issue with the wifi here. At the time of the review, the hotel was been used by a local oil field. Crews working shift would revolve and as soon as they accessed the internet on their return, the wifi could not handle it. A real shame for what could be a real decent hotel.
I traveled 20 miles away from where I was working to stay at this Best Western. I passed over a Fairfield Inn to stay at a Best Western. Why? Because I know I am going to get a quality room at a good price. This is a very nice hotel tucked away in Center, Texas so if you want a very nice room and you are willing to travel few miles out of the way then find theis hotel. Great staff and very modern hotel.
My wife and I had a King room and my Sister-in-law had the adjoining Double Suite. We were there to visit family. The rooms were perfect and well maintained, We highly recommend this property! The Staff was excellent and the Breakfast was real eggs, and breakfast sausage was great. Waffles were very nice as well. Absolutely a very positive experience!
This is a great hotel for the cost. I have stayed here more than once and always found it to be clean with a friendly staff and large rooms. The breakfast is much better than most. Real eggs and real sausage. They even offered blueberry waffles.
We highly recommend this hotel!! We stay @ this hotel about 3 times a year. There are other hotels in this area but we purposefully select this hotel due to their superior customer service. The service is exceptional!! It has extremely nice rooms & very good amenities. It is also very well priced.
We've stayed at this Best Western numerous times over the past few years and are happy to call it our home away from home. Conveniently located at the intersection of Hwy's 96 and 87 in Center, TX, the hotel is just a few minutes from downtown Center and offers easy access to the surrounding communities in the Shelby County area. The building is a relatively new four-story structure set atop a small rise. The staff is very friendly and professional; They have gone out of their way on several occasions to help us with last-minute lodging arrangements and special requests. The rooms are quiet, clean and well-appointed, the decor contemporary. They have a broad range of amenities including a pool and hot tub, complimentary WiFi, a small laundry room available to guests, a modest conference room and a work-out room with an assortment of updated machines. They offer a filling breakfast buffet of eggs, breakfast meats, biscuits, bagels, assorted cereals and a bonafide Texas shaped waffle iron featuring Golden Malted waffle mix and syrup. There's even a KFC/Taco Bell a comfortable distance across the parking lot for when those late-night munchies strike. Overall this is the nicest, most comfortable hotel we've found in the area. Whether on vacation or away from home overnight for work, it's comforting to know you have a place you can truly relax and get a restful night's sleep.
We spent two nights here. Casey, the front desk clerk, was cordial, efficient and friendly. We had a king suite which was a very good sized room with plenty of space to lounge and move around. The room had a large flat screen TV and a microwave and refrigerator. The room was clean with extra nice bedding with a very firm mattress. WiFi worked well. Breakfast was typical hotel fare: eggs, gravy, biscuits, fresh fruit, yogurt, and cereal. There was a business center and outdoor spa and pool, but we did not use these amenities. Overall this was a nice stay.
We were in E. Texas for the weekend and needed a place to stay. We picked this hotel because of the Trip Advisor reviews and it was a Great choice. Everything was clean and fresh and the staff was awesome. As we checked in I was teasing g with the lady at the desk and asked what was for breakfast the next morning. She mentioned bacon or sausage and I said "Make it bacon." Sure enough the next morning we had bacon with our scrambled eggs and biscuits. She remembered my comment because as we checked out she asked if I got my bacon. Real small town hospitality!
We have stayed here before when working in area, so re-booked since we had great experience first time. It was just as nice this go-round. The staff are super nice, the hotel is very clean and well kept. The rooms are spacious and updated. If you are in the area, this is a great place for a great price.
This was the best , BW we have ever stayed in !!! Room was perfect, employees were perfect, breakfast was perfect, everything was without question, just wonderful! We have stayed in over 50 hotels this year alone and we were so surprised that such a great hotel was sitting in Center Texas!!!
A solid sleep is what counts most, and that is what we got. The motel is a nice, modern place with friendly people. My wife says it got her spoiled for the rest of our road trip. I was quite surprised it did not cost more than it did.
Great place to stay. Large rooms, very nice "gathering" places. Huge sitting area in the lobby. Many breakfast options. Truly a surprise. Relatively new property, and very well-maintained. Small conference room available if needed. Private business center.
The best western has never done me wrong. Front desk hospitality. Yummy breakfast. Clean pool. Fast internet. Hands down best hotel in center that I've stayed at. I've had dealing with the sleep inn and holiday inn and Hampton and ONLY because the best western was fully occupied! Thanks best western for the great experience every time I stay!! Top-Co cementing products appreciates you!
