    We were going to visit my father in the hospital, and decided to stay at a hotel with an indoor pool open for my kids. The pool was out of order, but there was no notice until I walked in for check in.

    « Stay Here »

    We were delayed in our departure to Jacksonville so called ahead to inform the staff. They made a note and reserved our room. We arrived about 10 PM and everything was ready for check-in. They were renovating but still maintained a clean environment (hard to do). It was great lodging with a wonderful staff.

    « Pleasant Employees »

    We were greeted by a very pleasant hotel staff member who anticipated our needs. A little disappointed with the smell of smoke as both 2nd and 3rd floor were combined smoking and non-smoking rooms. Rooms and beds were comfortable, but we had a room facing the street which was a little loud.

    « Very Clean »

    During our stay the Hotel was incredibly clean. The pillows on the King bed could have been bigger. Not a complaint. Just a preference. This is also the only SMOKING PERMITTED Hotel in the area. The room and halls did not have that funky stale smoke oder. They do a good job of filtering the air.

    « comfortable »

    Plenty of pillows, mattress was great, room was clean. mini fridge kept items cold. Some places I've stayed has had inadequate fridges even if the control was set on the lowest cold temperature they didn't keep cold items cold enough.

    Clean, modern, comfortable & friendly. A good value, located near many restaurants including fast food. Our room was very comfortable and had easy access from parking area. Breakfast was hot and good. Tip: If desired,you can ask the server in the back to prepare you an order of bacon.

    « So So Comfortable »

    We arrived tired and hot after a 3.5 hour drive. Our clerk received us with a smile and quickly got us to our rooms as we were arriving for a conference. I didn't know how to use the key The staff was so helpful. Upon.entering the room it was so lovely. The room was bright and clean. The two large queen beds were decorated so pretty. Very welcoming. The pillows were perfect. The size of the room was great as it had a chair w reading light, plenty of room between the beds, There was easy storage for my luggage. Another padded bench was in the corner for sitting and a very nice study desk for the computer was available. After a wonderful refreshing shower I laid down for a few minutes before I had to attend an evening event. When I laid down I was delighted with the bed. It was so comfortable! I wish I had that mattress at home. There was a great restaurant across the street. Everything was convenient for our stay. I had a very restful night. Breakfast the next morning was great. Our whole group was extremely happy with this hotel, the smiling staff, beautiful rooms, and cleanliness.The curtains were so nice allowing sunshine during the day. At night the curtains were perfect for my privacy. I felt very safe. The coffee pot and condiments were there. I really like the soap. Everyone raved about the mattress. The air conditioner was quiet keeping the room cool. We all rated this hotel as excellent and would definitely as a group or individually stay again.

    « Walls are thin »

    Its a nice hotel, but the walls are super thin. We were sleep and the people next door to us were having sexual relation and it woke us up. Horrible! But I gave it a four because the hotel is nice. So if you stay there just know your walls are super thin.

    Enjoyed the stay and the room. It was clean but the hotel needs to be maintained a little better. Elevator needed work, Lobby cluddered, Stayed in same hotel 5 years ago and does not seem like any upkeep was done to improve appearance. It was clean and comfortable stay overall.

    Had a wonderful stay for one night as we were traveling. The local manager even offered to pick us up at the local airport. We later found the courtesy car, but her offer meant volumes. The rest of the stay was just as enjoyable. By the way, she also directed us to Legends which may have the best hamburger anywhere.

    I had requested a room furthest away from the elevator but got a room closest to the elevator. When I approached the front desk they were very accommodating and gave me another room at the end of the hall.

    Hotel was very clean and quiet even though it was on the highway. Front desk staff was very helpful, room was clean and bed was comfortable. Price was very good for it being a weekend rate, will stay at this hotel again.

    « Well kept property, Excellent Customer Service »

    Well kept extra clean property. Bed was very comfortable and I got an excellent nights sleep. Excellent customer service from both front desk agents at check in and check out. I didn't try the breakfast because I was running late getting ready to head out for Rusk to the Texas State Railroad. This is a great place to stay if you are going to the Texas State Railroad as it's only a 15 minute to the depot in Rusk!

    « June 2017 »

    The hotel was clean, room was comfortable, bathroom was clean and water was hot. The only area of concern was the lack of people to man the kitchen/breakfast area where the number of people eating out performed the ability of the single employee to keep food and freshments replenished.

    « Nice place to stay »

    This hotel was very clean and nice. The rooms smelled great and were very well kept. The staff was nice and accommodating as well. If you are looking for a place with a good fitness center, this is not the place. My only complaint on this hotel would be the lack of decent fitness equipment. Other than that, the hotel was very nice, clean and perfect for my business trip.

    A Best Western that lives up to its name. The hotel was very clean and the staff was extremely friendly. Check in and check out was quick and easy. The breakfast was the best hotel breakfast that I have had in years. Eggs that actually tasted like eggs and really fresh biscuits.

    « Stay at Best Western »

    This is a very nice hotel to stay at. The ladies at the front were very helpful and friendly. The hotel and grounds were very clean. The room was a nice size room and a great bed with nice super and fluffy pillows. Would love to bring the plilows home with me. Lots of nearby places to eat. Hotel is on the highway as you come into Jacksonville, so no driving around trying to find it. We were in town to ride the train out of Rusk the next day. It was close to the station and easy to find. The breakfast was great. Hot and cold selections, eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, Texas shaped waffles. Several things close to hotel to do.

    A friendly, front desk can make or break a hotel. And this young man certainly made this one; from his welcoming smile, kind manner and helpful information. BW you have a winner in this young man and would do well to keep him.

    My family had the pleasure to stay at the Best Western Jacksonville for my son's last Homecoming at Jacksonville College and as always - wonderful service from the time we checked in to the time we checked out. Rooms very large and spacious, comfortable beds and pillows, extremely friendly staff that provided great customer service. Breakfast was ok, but the great customer service from all of the hotel staff and the cleanliness of the rooms and the hotel makes this a great hotel to stay while visiting Jacksonville at a very reasonable price and I highly recommend this hotel if you are visiting Jacksonville.

    « FOR THE PRICE »

    The service was great, the beds were so comfortable I did not want to get out of it and the breakfast was a hot breakfast with plenty to choose from. For the price of the room it was well worth it. If you have a trailer the parking is really small. We got there early enough so that we parked in the back so that everyone else would have room.

    « Pleasantly surprised! »

    I LOVED the size of the room. Very spacious and comfy. Indoor pool was relaxing but I especially loved the hot tub. Water was so hot but so soothing. For supper, we walked across the street to an excellent mexican food restaurant. All in all, great experience. NOW probably my 1st choice of hotels when I visit J'ville again!

Close to Food places.

    « Very nice for the rate... comfortable bed but small pillows »

    Clean, location on main road, was relatively noise free, good firm bed, but I hate the marshmallow pillows that some hotels are using now. The elevator was warm as it had no vented air but not a big deal. Everywhere in Texas is hot in June! Wifi was iffy.... worked but was super slow at times... Location was close to Chili's restaurant and wal mart if you need that... I recommend this hotel. Booked on Priceline for about $75

    I had the pleasure of staying at Best Western-Jacksonville while in town attending my son's graduation from Jacksonville College. Everyone - again - was so courteous, warm and friendly - EXCELLEN CUSTOMER SERVICE shown by everyone at this hotel. Check-in was quick, check out was quick and wonderful - I asked for a late check-out and it was granted. Very large rooms with comfortable beds, very clean - located not far from the college and a great price!~ How surprised I was to see the changes that had been made to the hot breakfast that was being served - a variety of what was being served; more selection of hot items, more fruits - it was all very nice - great choices! Best Western will continue to be my first choice for hotels to stay at when I am in the Jacksonville area!

    Nice clean place to stay. Rooms were nice. Great Hot breakfast. Friendly staff. Let us park our motorcycle in the front under awning. The only negative I have was the hallway smelled bad. Maybe the smoking rooms were on the same floor. The room it self didn't smell. That's the only thing that kept me giving it 5 stars. Lots of eating place in walking distance too.

    « Good clean easy access hotel »

    I have stayed here at this hotel many times the past 10 years. It is in a great location, easy access, good parking, well lit, secure, with clean rooms at a fair price. The only thing lacking is a good breakfast. Waffle mix and milk were sour, eggs cold, and the lady did not speak very good English. Had to get breakfast all 3 mornings up the road. This will be a determining factor when I came here to work again this year. Other than that it is a good trustworthy hotel.

    We often ride the Texas State railroad in Rusk and used to stay in that toen. But then we decided to try this BW. We have nt stayed anywhere else since.

    « Everything a road traveler needs. »

    The location is across from a 24 hour Denny's and several other shops. I slept great in my very clean room with a jetted tub for a very fair price. There was a nice pasture behind the hotel, I enjoyed looking at that but females traveling alone should be ond upper levels, as my window opened like a residental window and there was not a screen or lock, I would ask for a upper level for safety next time. The breakfast was hot with an array of items but I do prefer individual servings of milk or juice as those jugs they wash and out milk in always taste funny. Overall, this is a very clean, very well located Best Western for road travel and the vending machines are stocked well for late night munchies AND the indoor pool is open 24 hours, which the lovely front desk girl told us about.

    When in Rusk, we always stay at this Best Western located in Jacksonville. Been there multiple times and never have any complaints. Always a safe bet to stay here. Staff are very nice, pleasant, professional, helpful, accommodating. Rooms are always clean, nice décor. The internet is awesome. The breakfast is very adequate. Linens are clean. The beds are always very comfortable. The television comes in clear. We have never stayed any place else when visiting family in Rusk since we have found Best Western in Jacksonville so cannot compare to the other hotels as there is no reason to look elsewhere. It is always a safe bet for us to stay at a for sure great location as is the Best Western. Highly recommend to anybody who need a place to stay while in the area. Keep up the great work, Best Western.
