    « Not our favorite »

    If you like the construction crowd, then you will love this place. Your BW status doesn't matter so, don't bother using it. The laundry facilities look as though the asphalt crews washed all their tools and tar covered cloths in the machines. Our room was located in the furthest dark and dank portion of the facility with a sink that wouldn't drain and tile looked like some type of science project was being performed there. Not enough ample parking either with one way in and one way out. DON'T bring a trailer!

    « Wish every hotel was as warm and welcoming! »

    Last minute after a long day and more than I expected from staff and room quality. Although busy area, I slept sound. The breakfast staff we more than hospitable. They even kept breakfast stocked and opened late so that our day didn't begin rushed, and they did so with smiles, laughter and nice conversation. Well done, Best western!

    It was a very nice place to stay and the people were very pleasant and helpful all the time. Other than train which they can't do anything about. Will probably come back this way in the future just to stay here.

    « Good Place To Stay »

    On our trip out west to Arizona, we booked a stay at this establishment. It was very easy to locate. It's right on the major route through Dalhart. The room was clean. Amenities were adequate for the rate. It's an old school motel that is a good place to stay. Parking is tight and trains run frequently throughout the night. The clerk acknowledges the trains and gives you ear plugs. So, all in all, we had a good nights stay.

    5
    « Great stay »

    We had a great stay here. The room was nice and clean. Bed was comfortable. The train is loud while we were awake but it didn't wake us during the night. Would definitely stay again if we are driving through.

    « Very Good Night »

    Recommend. Veery comfortable beds. Even though it is near train tracks and they offer ear plugs, we didn't need them. Trains didn't wake either of us up. Did hear when we were awake and one came through. It may depend on location of room and how sensitive to sounds your are but it was no problem for us. Would stay again if through that area at time for sleep.

    « clean, comfy, great beds »

    Check in and slept overnight and participated in an endurance event, came back and showered and then left. Convenient, clean, quick check in. The clerk gave all the runners a goodie bag (banana, water and protein bar) on our check out -- so thoughtful and kind. We felt like queens! Thank you for making our stay fabulous.

    « The staff was 5-star! »

    It's an older hotel, but the rooms have been up-dated and include all the amenities you could ask for : coffee pot, iron, blow-dryer, wi-fi, clock, and cable TV. Tho it's right on the main road through town, it's quiet. The best part is the staff, who are friendly and considerate. The free breakfast was a bonus

    « Good value and excellent breakfast »

    This is an older Best Western hotel, but still a very good value and offering all the amenities as the more modern Best Westerns. Clean rooms, good lighting for applying cosmetics, fast internet, fridge and microwave, comfortable bed. The breakfast was excellent offering a variety of foods that even a gluten-free person could eat!

    « Trip to Denver »

    This place is always clean and fresh inside and out. The rooms are large and have a fridge and microwave. They have DirecTV which I have at home and makes finding channels easy. The people are always friendly and helpful. If you're traveling through Dalhart it is the place to stay!

    « A good stay in Texas »

    Room was simple, but clean and comfortable. A good hot breakfast. Friendly staff with good dining recommendations. Wi-fi provided. Railroad nearby, but no problem. It's a bit off the beaten path of highway 54, but well worth seeking out.

    « Nice room with comfy beds and a hot breakfast! »

    We stayed one night here on the way home on a road trip. The room was nice and had really comfy beds...most hotel/motel beds hurt my back. The bathroom was a little cramped, but the shower was a nice size! We had a nice hot breakfast with Texas-shaped waffles...room was definitely worth the price!

    « The staff is always very accommodating »

    Have stayed at the Nursanickel many times over the past 30 years. The place has changed a lot over that time, but something that has been constant and even improved is the great service we get from the staff. On our most recent visit, Denisia took the time to help us with a reservation problem that the national Best Western operators refused to address. She listened to our issue and went out of her way to take care of us.

    « This is a convenient place to stay while traveling »

    The room was just fine. The breakfast was adequate. Although near train tracks, we had a room in the corner away from the tracks and the sound was quite muted. You have to go outside to get to the lobby and breakfast area, but the walk is short. It's a motel in the sense of pulling your car right up to the door. It's well run and clean.

    « I would stay here anytime I'm in Dalhart »

    I would stay here anytime I'm passing through Dalhart. The rooms, lobby and grounds were super clean, and staff was very friendly and helpful, they went above and beyond to make sure our stay was pleasant!

    « Nice older hotel, with friendly staff »

    We always stay at the Best Western in Dalhart, Tx. The staff is very helpful, the hotel is a little older, but everything inside/furniture and decor is newer. The bathroom is a little cramped, space between the toilet and tub/shower. There are trains that toots several times during the night, but this can be heard at other hotels too.

    5
    « Very friendly and good service »

    The decoration of the hotel is cute, the rooms are very comfortable and the hotel is dog friendly. The service was great. It includes breakfast and it has good location. It also has a good wi-fi. Prices are affordable

    « Not our first stop at Nursanickel Hotel »

    This has been our regular stopping point on road trips from East Texas to Colorado. Always have had a clean room and comfortable bed. We stay overnight only. Most time we have been given a ground floor but this time we had a second floor room and without an elevator, it was a bit more of a chore to unload. It is pet friendly and the staff has always been very friendly. They have a very strange TV system using Direct TV that is not the easiest to understand. We had to call for help to get the TV receiver reset. We will use it again on our next trip to Colorado.

    My wife and I like to travel. We've been to all 50 states together. We pick a part of the country and travel till we get home sick. We know when we stop at a Best Western our stay will be like home, safe and comfortable.

    « simple but nice »

    dalhart became our stopping point after a long day of driving. we travel with our two dogs, so finding a pet friendly place is a challenge. this best western came through. it is conveniently located on the main highway through town. the room was clean, spacious and pet friendly. a basic but complete breakfast is included with your stay. the room cost was fair. the staff was friendly and helpful.

    4
    « Clean »

    Stayed here and we didn't have reservation but it was getting late... luckily they had a 1st floor non smoking room available...i thought for a cattle town it was pricey. Room very clean, fridge and microwave in room. They said I train goes by 2-3 times a night, gave us ear plugs but honestly never heard it... this appears to be the best place to stay in area.... would recommend if your trip brings thru Dalhart TX.

    « A Disappointing Best Western Experience »

    Hotel needs to be updated. The one night we were there it was noisy in the parking lot with doors banging and people yelling back and forth. Bathroom was very small. TV was not working, but hotel staff at front desk came immediately to fix it. Breakfast was OK. Very minimal amenities for what I'm used to experiencing at a Best Western.

    5
    « good service »

    would stay here again. very good breakfast and the staff is friendly. they offer fast checkout.. great place to say if you are passing thru. but you must enjoy the sounds of trains. close to places to eat. small town.

    « A clean room in an older building, complete with railroad sounds »

    This motel may be the best in Dalhart, and is clean and relatively comfortable. However, it's an older building, near a very active railroad crossing, and our room still has a strong musty smell typical of older motels. The staff do a very good job, and they happily helped with a special request I had. We were placed in a pet friendly room that was about as far away from the grass behind the building as we could be, so dog walks required much more time. Breakfast was pretty good, albeit the usual for small BW inns. The AC unit was very confusing, requiring an always-on button to be pushed so that the cooling would continue all the time. Otherwise it would shut off every five minutes, then staff off for about 10 minutes, which wasn't enough to keep the room cool, despite being set to high.

    3
    « Close to train traffic »

    This older 2 story motel is located on the main highway and right across from the rail line. Several trains went by after 10pm, blowing their horns at least till midnight. After midnight, we occasionally heard trains going by without blowing their horns. Our room was clean, but did require renovation. Noticed poor patch jobs on shower and bathroom walls and between shower wall and bathtub. Small room, but comfortable for the 2 of us.

    « Drive up Best Western »

    Older place, drive up style. 2nd story has balcony. Nice room. Clean. Bathroom small but renovated. Beds comfortable. No hot water in the morning. They get an F on that one. The trains did not bother us. Well kept outside. Generally a comfortable place.

    « great hotel »

    I pass threw Dalhart on my way to my sons college. I have stayed here several times. I enjoy this hotel because it is extremely clean, the staff are nice, rooms are great. I would highly recommend staying here. It is also with in walking distance to Dairy Queen, my go to place for ice cream .

    « Well Now ..... »

    We were looking for 1/2 way stop between Dallas and Crested Butte although the choices in Dalhart didn't seem to be overwhelming. Each Hotel seem to have major drawbacks but we finally decided to give the Best Western here a try. When we arrived, they did have our reservations although the first-floor rooms that we had requested were not available according to the desk clerk. After some discussion, we ended up with the rooms that we had requested initially and we're pleasantly surprised by the condition and furnishings in the rooms. As far as the room itself is concerned, I have paid a lot more for a lot less. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean which is about all you can ask for a hotel on the road these days. While the complementary earplugs are still available, we live across the street from a train track and had no trouble at all falling right asleep in our room. The only bad thing I could say about the location was that it smelled like a feedlot at certain times of the evening which is no fault of the motel. The complimentary breakfast was probably one of the best that I've had in quite a while. The food was hot and was restocked continually The staff was very pleasant and efficient. Some of the older reviews referred to deficiencies in the facilities and in the restaurant but obviously those have all been addressed and corrected. You would be hard-pressed, in my opinion common to find a better place to stay in Dalhart.

    « Nice, clean hotel »

    This was a decent place. The rooms are very clean. There are some features that could use some updating/fixing, but overall it was a nice place. They provide ear plugs for the trains going by, but I had no problem with them and I am a light sleeper. The thunder from a storm was louder than the train horns. Overall a good place to stay.

    I didn't have high hopes for a motel in Dalhart but I was pleasantly surprised! The room was clean and newly refurbished. The breakfast was yummy (can't go wrong with fresh waffles). I'd stay here again!

    « Stay here. You will not be disappointed. »

    Older property, that the owner is working every week to improve, and it shows. The pool area is great. Breakfast room small, so plan accordingly. Excellent local Tex/Mex restaurant to the east up HWY 54. Shabby inside, but your tummy and pocketbook will be happy.

    « No parking at the inn. »

    We arrived late with reservations. Once we checked in we were told there were no parking spots available. The lack of parking spaces made for additional work and worry. The hotel is across the street from busy train train tracks, but we received ear plugs at check-in.

    « Exceeded expectations »

    I've stayed in Dalhart before. It is a cattle town; our first stay was just okay. This hotel was a pleasant surprise. It was clean, comfortable and pleasant. I enjoyed the larger choice of breakfast items -- it was replenished often while we were there. I made a egg biscuit while my husband had the traditional waffle.

    « Safe & secure rest. »

    We left Estes Park, CO and we're tired from traveling all day. My wife called Best Western to see if there were any vacancies in Dalhart. She was told there were no vacancies. We got to Dalhart and stopped by the Best Western anyway. We found there were in fact 2 vacancies. We were given a great break for being a rewards member. The room was clean & cool and we parked in front of our room in a well lit an secure parking lot and experienced a very restful night. Breakfast was fairly good. The coffee, eggs, waffle, biscuits were great. The potatoes were smothered in a gosh awful tomato sauce and undercooked. Overall our experience was positive and we will continue staying at Best Western on our road trips.

    « Updated Classic Motel »

    This BW is an older property that has been tastefully updated. It obviously reflects pride of ownership. Our room was clean, comfortable, and looked modern. As expected for this type of motel, the room was a little smaller than the typical BW, but the modern and clean decor made it feel larger. Buffet breakfast was good. One minor complain, the in-room wifi was spotty. Also, travellers should be aware that trains do pass through town a couple of times a night and although my gf slept through it, I was awakened both times. The friendly front desk team warned me about the trains and provided ear plugs for out comfort.

    « Great bargain! »

    I arrived late and the staff was very friendly and professional. Small town and no restaurants were open. The receptionists guided me to a local place that was great. The only negative is the intersection that this hotel is on is difficult in and out. Everything else good!

    « WOULD STAY THERE AGAIN »

    « Last stop for a great hotel heading West »

    This hotel is not in the ideal location but the rooms are renovated and the beds are comfortable. Negatives: High price, Train property (you will hear it run through town), ON the highway. I did find 2 cockroaches but disposed of them quickly. Overall, decent stay for the one of the last stops before you travel to the middle of the desert/plains.

    « Pleasant Surprise »

    Due to the age of the hotel, I did not expect the level of upgrades. The Management has done a very good job maintaining the establishment. Room was comfortable and clean. The staff was extremely helpful. The hotel was conveniently located to the downtown area.

    « Best Western Dalhart »

    Excellent hotel for the cost and the breakfast was absolutely amazing. The breakfast was hot and fresh, the pastry was very good and fresh and the quantity was maintained by a watchful staff. The room was very comfortable but the bed was a little too soft.

    « Great halfway point to Tucson from MO »

    The room was clean and they moved me to a non-smoking room upon arrival since a mistake was made in the booking. The internet worked pretty good. The breakfast was good, but no bacon. They gave you a little travel bag with snacks when you checked out in the morning. There is a real close railroad so they give out ear plugs so you won;t be disturbed by it. Very close to fast food restaurants. I liked that it had a tub in addition to the shower.

    « Unexpected stop »

    We weren't planning to stop here but bad weather kept us from the roads. They extremely helpful and although they had a tremendous amount of people trying to check in because of the weather, they did a great job making us feel welcome and safe. The rooms were average but very clean.

    « Clean and comfortable »

    As snowbirds, the location was good on our way back east. We didn't really have high expectations having stayed in Santa Rosa, Amarillo, etc. But, this worked out great for us and the hotel staff were friendly, the room was clean and comfortable. Dog friendly too.

    « Nice Stay »

    Stayed at the hotel while traveling cross country. The staff was pleasant while we checked in. The room was clean and current. The only negative about the hotel cannot be fixed by them. Trains go through this town several times a night. Earplugs are provided and they tell you about the trains when you check in. The breakfast was very good and included eggs, 2 types of meat and waffles. Rolls and dry cereal was also available.

    « Beware of Bedbugs »

    Stayed here for 1 night on our way to Colorado on 3/11/17 in room 253. I have no complaints about the property itself. The staff was friendly enough and the breakfast was above average. However, I woke up the next morning and my feet and ankles were covered in bedbug bites. They itched like crazy and were in the classic 3 bite pattern (breakfast-lunch-dinner). I contacted Best Western customer service via email and they assured me that the management would contact me. It's been over a week and I have no received one phone call or email from them. I don't want a refund, but I do want them to inspect the room and the adjacent rooms so that they can be properly treated so that no other guests are bitten and the infestation doesn't spread. My family followed proper bedbug travel protocols and I'm 100% certain that they didn't follow us home.

    « NO POWER and SMELLY TOWN »

    Power outages with no communication from management. Manure smells permeate the entire town. I will never stay at this hotel again. No breakfast due to power outages, and no flashlights offered, or any other light sources for that matter. No offer of any compensation. They need to have a backup electrical generator on site for these occurances. Very disappointed.

    « Nasty air wick "freshener" in the room. A clean room should not need any thing to cover .Train and traffic are very loud »

    Construction on the stairwell did not give room to walk the steps and carry luggage. Very unsafe for children. Not marked as a caution area. Not notified or mentioned at check in. We asked about how often the train went through and the check in said, "we are not given that information."

    « Very clean »

    The room was just as in the picture. Very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was less than terrific, ran out of all hot foods. Person doing the breakfast was also running the desk. Should be 2 separate people if u want happy guests. Good for the price and hotel was packed. We would stay here again if in the area.

    This is an older motel in a town with major road construction and many trains. If train noises bother you they provide ear plugs. The ice machine was kaput, so they provided ice if you requested it at the desk.

    « Nice Room »

    Location was good but because of road construction it was a little loud. Was warned about train when checking in but it was not that bad. Pool was closed. Lots of workers from out of town, when they come in they can be a little fast pulling into the parking lot. The workers used all the ice and we had to walk to store for our own. We were only there over night and passing thru, so ok over all.

    « Nice but loud trains »

    Hotel was nice, staff was very friendly, rooms were good value, but trains were very loud when they passed the hotel. I heard one train around midnight, and one around 5:30, but not sure if others passed in the night that didn't wake me up. Breakfast was good, and location was good (other than proximity to train).

    « Ashambolic hotel that does not keep it word »

    When I got to the reception I waited 5 minute only to be told there was no record of my booking. When I produced the booking conformation that I had printed off when making the booking I was told this is our fault and not to worry as there were spare rooms available. After reaching our room, unpacking and showering we decided to iron our clothes for the morning and settle down for the evening, however the steam iron didn't work so we decided to just watch the television only to find that that didn't work either. So I phone down and asked for another steam iron and someone to sort the television. A few minutes later two girls from facilities knocked on the door one with the iron the other to look at the TV. After messing with the cables and the remote for 5 minutes I was told the TV didn't work and the best they could offer was that we change rooms. We declined the offer as it was nearly 9 o'clock at night and we had settled in. The two ladies promptly left, however the receptionist re appeared 5 minutes later to tell me that to compensate for all the problems I would get a discount when I settled my bill in the morning. The following morning when settling the bill I as told because of the problems I would not be charge at all for the night's stay , further more my credit card costs would be refunded. I was then handed my receipt/invoice which had zero's cost in all the columns. However when I got home and received my card statement I had indeed been refunded my credit card costs which amounted to $8.87. BUT I had also been charged in full $ 107.34 cost of the stay. Not a place to stay and not a place to be trusted.

    the hotel is right across the street from a very busy train track. 2 a.m. i'd guess the horns wake up the whole town. best part of the stay was the texas tavern which is within walking distance. the only restaurant, juans burritos and grill, is in the gas station across the street. enjoy the noise

    « Few Choices »

    Stayed here for 1 week. The room was supposed to be a non smoking room, but it had a bad odor of smoke. Mentioned it to the front desk and she just said it was from the room below. Not possible. Used the pool a few times, was refreshing, and is a salt brine system which is nice. Provided breakfast was good in the morning, only problem if you sleep in on the weekend, they close at 9. Most are open later on the weekend. Laundry machines are provided. The rooms are clean other than the smoke smell, maybe it was just the room I had. When I checked out, the girl at the desk said she would make a note and check it out. When your in the room I guess you get used to it, but when you first go in, you can really smell it. Overall it's not really a bad place to stay for the money.

    « Keep On Going »

    We enjoy most Best Westerns. Nursanickel is old. Nursanickel is in Dalhart. That's 2 bad strikes. The highway next to the hotel is under construction and will be for the next two years. Ingress and egress are difficult due to the construction. Plus the air is filled with road construction dirt. The train is the third strike. We were on the second floor but it still made a noticeable rumble sound in the room during the night. Then there are the flies that are ever present in the room. When the staff puts fly swatters in the room you might now you'll have a problem. We killed 9 but they kept sneaking in! The room was adequate, so was the bathroom but overall it's the pits.

    « Straightforward stopover on the way to the mountains »

    This is an old (built late 1960s - early 1970s, if I had to guess), but well kept, motor court style Best Western smack in the middle of Dalhart. Expect few frills, but expect to be comfortable. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were generally spacious (although the bathroom was a bit tight). There are plenty of critical reviews of this hotel. If you're expecting luxury, you should look elsewhere. However, if you're looking for a clean, comfortable place to stop over on the way to somewhere else, this is a solid choice. The rooms look to have been recently remodeled and refurnished. Because you're in Dalhart, you're right next to the railroad tracks. However, the staff makes the best of this location by offering complimentary earplugs from a jar kept at the desk. Also, because you're in Dalhart (and, thus, you're in cattle country), there will be flies. To help, the housekeeping staff leaves a fly swatter in each room for your convenience. The complimentary breakfast was good and the staff pleasant. The wifi worked well. The only thing that keeps this hotel from receiving 5/5 is that there are very minor maintenance flaws that do not affect the hotel's comfort at all. I noticed paint peeling from the bathroom door jamb and baseboards that looked really banged-up. Also, the parking is a bit tight. But the things that matter: beds, towels, door locks, etc., are well cared for.

    « Good bed + good shower = Good choice »

    After reading the reviews, I was a little concerned about the noise from the train. I think the train would be an issue with most hotels in Dalhart. We made reservations about 9:00 pm and arrived at 10:30 pm on s Friday night. The place was busy, but quiet (other than the train). Complimentary ear plugs are available at the front desk. We stayed in room 225, with a king-size bed. The decor appeared modern and rather new. The room was simple, but clean. Breakfast began at 6:00 am, and included hot options including make your own waffles. We just grabbed coffee, fruit, and yogurt to go. Hotel prices in Dalhart were much more reasonable than Amarillo.

    « Dirty rooms »

    Originally booked a double bed room on accident. Called to change to a single king and lady on the phone was very helpful. Got there at three in the morning and staff was waiting to check us in. But the bed was covered in hair, it was absolutely disgusting. The only other room available was a double bed. The bed was cleaner. But throughout my stay I found multiple bugs in the room: a fly that wouldn't leave me alone, a bug in my drinking glass, and a spider in the bathroom. Cleanliness was almost nonexistent during my experience there.

    « Not Quite Up To Par »

    I'll attach several photos as they tell the story better than I could. For starters, this hotel does get a few things right. I like the covered peep hole and that the table lamp and night stand lamp have all the connections you might need, including USB, for connecting a wired device or recharge a cell phone. The room was clean and furnished in a modern style; which I truly appreciated. I did think it strange that the room had it's own fly swatter (I've never seen that in a hotel before) but it came in handy when I killed three of four (one got away) houseflies buzzing around the room. The only other bug I recall seeing in the room (there were plenty outside) was a dead one inside the bathroom ceiling light. But, basically, my room was in need of some attention (i.e., peeling paint repaired, water stains sealed and painted, etc.). But, probably the most troubling was the lack of adequate secure parking for a truck with a small U-Haul trailer. I had to park near the road construction at the edge of the street in the very front of the parking lot. The turmoil created near that intersection, due to the construction and heavy traffic congestion, makes access and egress a dicey proposition. In terms of value, I think the room was priced about 10% above what it should have been for the age and condition of the room and the hotel's location. Bottom line: I probably would not stay here again if I could avoid it.

    The name has intrigued me for years. Our schedule finally allowed us to stay here. The experience was very pleasant. While the facility is "old-style" (doors opening to the outside), it is very well kept.

    A really great stay at this Best Western. Our room was update, clean, flat screen tv, pretty decor, fridge, microwave and plenty out plug in ports including USB. The beds, linen and pillows were comfortable and the AC was functioning well. The parking lot is currently going through some reconstruction so parking was limited. The con about this motel is their location. The train goes by the motel at night several times I.E. 12:45am and blows it whistle. The AC will not drown out the whistle. I had read reviews about the train so I made sure I took a second floor room in the back corner.

    « Wouldn't honor email confirmed price quote »

    Hotel is clean. Road construction outside. Construction in the parking lot on the property. Booked reservations through AAA for a night's stay in this AAA Diamond rated hotel. Price charged was $31 higher than the price in my confirmation email. After calling the Best Western corporate office, we were refunded $10. Am not recommending this hotel in any way. Customer service is not a priority for this front desk staff.

    « Excellent value »

    The Management and staff go beyond what would be expected to make the stay a pleasant one. Renovated rooms and supreme effort of all the staff to mitigate a little train noise are very apparent and do more than make up for the sound of the trains. It is a very good value and one won't find a more pleasant, sincere, and helpful staff anywhere. All the right stuff!

    « Decent Overnight, Except for Train »

    Stopped at BW Nursanickle on way to Colorado. Booked through hotels.com. This is an old style 'motel' with doors opening to outside. Dalhart has major road construction that stops just short of the BW, so entrance into parking lot gave a dusty impression. There were several men drinking beer IN the pool, and all of this gave an unsettling first impression, however everyone was quiet and kept to themselves. The rooms have been updated and appeared immaculately clean. Carpet was newer, furniture appeared new and trendy, bed comfortable, plenty of hot water, and fluffy towels. Breakfast was typical complimentary breakfast and was well stocked. Only real problem is the train. Train track is right there and they blow their whistles approaching the intersection. Overnight, we had about four whistle events and the train sounds like it is in the room with you. Front desk offers ear plugs but in no way would ear plugs block the sound. Other than that this is a decent, clean, convenient place to stay.

    « Noisy »

    My son said he liked trains. Good thing because we heard them all night long. It felt like we were on the train. The AC would have drowned the noise out if it would have allowed me to run the fan constantly. The room itself seemed very clean and well kept.

    « Suitable for a passing through visit »

    The hotel was clean and the breakfast was hot. The beds seemed comfortable enough. Yes, there was some train noise but we were offered ear plugs at the front desk and they were complementary. I thought that this hotel was adequate for a one night stay. I just wish the front desk employee had offered to make sure we were signed up for the $50.00 gift card offer.

    « Good for an overnight »

    Clean, comfortable room and friendly staff. Lots of road construction so it is hard to get to. It is pet friendly but there wasn't a very good place to walk our dog. They offer ear plugs because of the trains, I only heard one train around 9:00. It was not a quiet hotel, not bad but just not real quiet.

    Clean comfortable room, very reasonably priced, friendly staff, good breakfast, large variety to choice from, hot foods, cereal, fruit, yogurt and danishes. We would definitely stay here again. There are trains that come through town several times a day and at night, but it wasn't a problem.

    Room was small but, very clean. Tub and shower not made for anyone over 5 foot tall. Trains ran all night so, try to get a room towards the back. Breakfast was the best thing about the entire stay. Pool was not open but, it was only 36 degrees that night. People were friendly bu, not American.

    « one night stay »

    We only stayed one night as a stop over while traveling to Phoenix. Only thing I would recommend is when seniors stay at the hotel you put them on the bottom floor as there is not an elevator. All rooms are outdoor entrance. Hotel was quite adequate with comfortable beds. Breakfast was great with several options.

    water didn't drain out of tub. Tub & shower room so small you couldn't turn around in it. Even left a rag to clean room. What does that tell you. Front desk lied when said rooms were updated. Vanities old crappy. I can't believe Best Western puts their name on a place like this.

    « Okay stay »

    The room was clean but the king room did not have comfortable seating in it. We had to sit on the bed to watch TV. We always book rooms with king beds because there is usually at least one chair or a love seat. The hotel is very close to train tracks but fortunately, a train did not come through while we were sleeping.

    « Probably best in Dalhart »

    No surprises here except 2 things. The rooms are better quality than you'd expect with a best western or a motel at all. It's more like a holiday inn. The breakfast is big for continental. Great to have that in the morning. Dog friendly for only 10$ per dog.

    « Friendly people, really nicely updated rooms. »

    This is our second stay at this property. We are always tired when we get here and generally just sleep and get up and journey on. The thing most people know about Dalhart is the trains are noisy. This can't be helped. We arrived at 2:00 AM in the morning to find a very pleasant front desk person who got us the last room here and the last non-smoking room in Dalhart. The room was really, really nice, recently updated, fresh smelling and most of all quiet. Breakfast was crowded but good and everybody seemed to be enjoying their stay as much as we did. They keep the breakfast open longer when it is crowded as it was this night. I recommend this place with the strange name.

    « Super Clean and Friendly Staff »

    « Is Dalhart TX close to nowhere? »

    Great beds. We just needed a place to sleep for the night and made our choice without looking at reviews but we were pleasantly surprised with our experience. Alex was working the front desk and was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and fresh. We did not use the TV, we used the wi-fi and went to bed. The bed was more comfortable than my bed at home and I slept straight through 7 hours. They told me that the train goes by close to the motel but I did not hear it. Ask for a room away from the road. They offer to supply those common things that you may have forgotten and the free breakfast is good. It includes Texas shaped waffles and good, not great, biscuits and gravy. (Holiday Inn Express biscuits and gravy is not good)

    The hotel is very noisy being located at the intersection of two major highways (major for Dalhart) and next to the train tracks. Loud noises all night long! When we checked into the room we found leftover food in the refrigerator...yuck! I would try to avoid Dalhart as other hotels are not much better.

    « Newly Remodeled rooms accomponied by Excellent management »

    I travel quite a bit for work and have also been in the hospitality industry for the past 15 years. The BWN in Dalhart is newly remodeled, clean, and pet friendly. Every time I stay in a hotel of this caliber there are generally a few set backs. I must say as a service/hospitality industry professional that Barry Sukha (the GM) went above and beyond my expectations in every way possible. I had a minor issue with my room as well as some excessive noise coming from a another room. He genuinely cared about my stay and addressed the situations with class and respect for all the guests involved. I know this because I was in the lobby while he called and addressed the noise complaint. He was just equally accommodating to the person that I complained about as he was to me as well as every other guest I saw him interact with. This industry needs more people like him. Thank you for all your hospitality Barry! Because of you, this will be the only place I stay if ever in the Dalhart area again. Thanks again for the hospitality and I wish you many more years of success and good fortune. Josh L, Dallas, TX

    Pulling up to Dalhart, we knew this small town wasn't going to have many lodging options. However, once inside we were all very pleased with the Best Western! The cheaper of the motels in town, this definitely didn't feel like it. The rooms were nice, breakfast had something for everyone, the the staff went out of their way to accommodate us. Fair warning, you are RIGHT on the train tracks, so take advantage of the offer for earplugs.

    We were passing through Dalhart and if you have been there you know there are not many good options. Our stay last night at the Best Western Nursanickel exceeded expectations. For a hotel on a major highway AND rail system our room was very quiet. The staff was very helpful. The room was very clean and the wifi strong. Good bed. Best value and rate we found. Would stay there next time passing through.

    This is a very nice and comfortable motel in Dalhart, one of the most convenient places to spend the night if traveling between Texas and Colorado. The rooms and amenities are nice, they take our dog (an important member of the family) and have a nice, grassy pet area that was not there in earlier years, and our only concern was that prices are a little higher than other motels in town. Rooms do have high-speed internet, mini-fridges and microwaves, and hair dryers, which are frequently absent in other motels.

    The room was nice and the bed was comfy, however the pillows (though there were many) were like rocks. Both of us woke up with neck pain. Will have to remember to pack our own if we ever want to stay here again. The breakfast looked wonderful, but the hot food was cold and we were about first in line. Very disappointing.

    « A Good Overnight in Dalhart, Texas »

    The BW Nursanickel is an older BW motel, but they have kept it up nicely and in all honesty, it's a little bit of an oasis in Dalhart which primarily revolves around large cattle operations, trucking traffic on the main roads through town and numerous trains rolling through town. Dalhart smells like cattle, some days worse than others and you just have to adjust when outside. Of importance though is the fact that the BW has tight window and door seals and zilch cow aroma inside the room, big plus! Our room was away from the train whistles so barely a hint of noise, we noted they did offer ear plugs for guests on request. Our room had a very comfy bed, was nicely decorated, good wifi. The heater in the room struggled a bit at first, but by the time we came back from dinner, all was nice and toasty. Staff was friendly and efficient. Property was clean. This BW is located at a very busy intersection, turning into the parking lot from the north can be a bit challenging due to truck traffic. We would definitely stay here again.

    I thought it was a bad sign when I saw the "earplugs available on request" sign. Then I found a complimentary set in the hotel as well. Yep, trains and trucks all night. The towel left to clean with was another signal of the problems here. Several bugs in the room as well. I could not get out fast enough the next morning.

    I was so glad there was a BW in Dalhart. I was tired from traveling for several days and nights. I didn't want to drive any more or stay at a different motel. Prices are always high, but it was reasonable. I didn't care for the foam pillows, but I was so tired it didn't matter. Management always needs to be aware of mold in the bathroom around the tubs.

    The first room we were given had a backed up toilet with water and wet towels on the floor. Overall cleanliness was bad. Second room was better but not great, and the train about knocked you out of bed after it woke you up four or five times through the night.

    « Worst Hotel in Dalhart »

    This hotel is next to train tracks with constant traffic, blowing horns all night. They make you sign a disclaimer after they check you in so they can keep your money after you cannot sleep at night. They force cancer patients on oxygen to climb stairs, even when they have first floor rooms available.

    « Trains & more trains »

    Trains all night long. When I asked the girl behind the desk when trains came through she just shrugged her shoulders. Breakfast was what you would expect, nothing special. When I checked in they wanted to make a copy of my drivers license. Could somebody please explain to me why this is necessary. Everyone has security cameras these days. In this age of identify theft this is not a very good practice. I can understand if all you want to do is verify identity but you don't need to make a copy.
