The Wild West is still in full effect near our Johnson City, TX hotel, with riding available at LBJ Ranch and endless hiking trails at Pedernales Falls State Park. Of course, some of our guests come from around the state just to visit Whittington's Jerky. Even those in town for a meeting with Pedernales Electrical Company can't help but indulge in a little leisure, sightseeing and sampling of the great Texas barbeque in the region. No matter what brings you to this part of the Lone Star State, get your day started right with a free, hot breakfast that includes your favorites such as waffles and Arabica coffee.

    « Great Access to Peredanales State Park »

    The hotel staff are friendly and share information of the amenities. I enjoyed the green area near my room. I will return to visit in the fall if not sooner. Thank you Best Western for this convenient location.

    « Good Service, Eh Rooms »

    PROS: Service & Price. Staff was nice & provided a great rate when booking. Breakfast was normal/fine. CONS: Was put off by room smell due to smokers outside... found random items outside of our door (large, unfinished oatmeal???) some days. New room was probably cleaned well, but old & not fully comfortable with rooms' quality.

    « Nice stay »

    Nice clean hotel. Front desk person Stephanie p was really pleasant intelligent and helpful Hugh plus Sitting gazebo very please thank surprise Town is nice. Interesting art. Good brewery. Hhhhhhhhhhhhj

    « Excuses for bad equipment »

    Lukewarm coffee served in breakfast room. Poor quality machine. Owner made excuses. 2nd floor ice machine did not work. Owner made excuses; claimed it had been fixed last week. Ha! 1st floor machine was 1 year old. 2nd floor machine was older.

    « Good location but old »

    Overall impression: nice, convenient and friendly but a rather old hotel with price a bit too high for quality of rooms. Pluses: Excellent location for exploring Hill Country. Very friendly and helpful stuff. Convenient parking. Rather large garden where guests can walk their dogs ? great feature! Breakfast is OK, nothing too spectacular Minuses: Rooms are tired and there is a strong smell of disinfectant. Bathrooms need some renovations.

    « Our Choice of Hotel in the Hill Country »

    We are Texas wine lovers and regularly visit wineries in the Johnson City - Fredericksburg area. We always go to this hotel when visiting the Hill Country: Awesome staff, clean rooms, excellent breakfast!

    « Bites, but no bytes »

    I really needed to use the internet to get some work done. The front desk person was rude and the "help" number she provided said they could not provide support for this hotel. Then, the next morning I woke up with big red bites on my arms. They weren't there when I went to bed. I was given a $20 discount for my trouble and was told, "Thank you for letting me know." I will be going to Blanco or Marble Falls next time I travel to Johnson City.

    « Good place to stay near Fredericksburg »

    The Best Western had the best beds I have slept in. The staff were friendly, and the breakfast was good. The price was much less than in the surrounding areas, but close enough. We went to LBJ Ranch and some wineries. Also the Pacific Museum in Fredericksburg was interesting. The restaurant right outside of the Best Western had the best food in the area.

    « Convenient and comfortable. »

    Although this motel is showing it's age, the rooms were clean and the beds are comfortable. A convenient location for visiting the wineries, LBJ Ranch and Fredericksburg. Breakfast is filling and changes daily.

    « Excellent BW »

    Excellent Hotel with outstanding staff, the room are the best I have seen, and they server an excellent hot and delicious breakfast. The BW is locates near the LBJ ranch, and the LBJ park. If you into tasting wine, the BW at Johnson city is the best place to be for it is just couple of miles from all of the winery.

    « The Grounds Are Wonderful »

    There is a beautiful park on the grounds of this motel, with a gazebo, vine-covered swing, roses, magnolias and barbecue grill. People get married here and have family reunions. Guests meet and talk while walking their dogs. It is very honest and down-home. It is lit-up at night so you can stroll around and get a breath of fresh air before retiring. Whoever it was who decided to build this park within the confines of the motel property was a person of great imagination and creativity. I loved staying here.

    « My room was crawling with bed bugs »

    Absolutely awful, the bedbugs were everywhere, you didn't even have to look for them. Interestingly, my previous review stating this was deleted. The hotel didn't charge me, but didn't even try to reimburse me for the inconvenience either. I had to move two sleeping kids at 11 pm at night to another hotel 30 minutes away, which was twice more expensive. The manager did call the nexgt day but dismissed the issue as something that 'happens everywhere'. Awful, will never return to that hotel again and will avoid Best Westerns in general at all costs.

    « Great Stay »

    We use this hotel when we visit our family in Austin outskirts. The hotel is convenient, comfortable and pleasant staff and is a great value. We mostly visit in the winter so we have not been able to use the pool, although it looks inviting. Easy access in and out of the place thru the light. We always enjoy staying at this place.

    « Johnson City stay »

    This hotel met our expectations for a hotel stay. We are pleased with the facility. staff was friendly; food was well prepared and good quality. The dining area was nice. We would have no trouble recommending this motel to anyone.

    « Nice Bed »

    An older hotel, but nice appearance and the bathroom was clean and updated. The upstairs concrete walk way did go up and down a bit, but it was the hill country. If a car, checking in, parks in the center of the covered area, they will block cars from coming in or out. The coffee maker in our room needed attention as it sputtered and splattered coffee all over the outside of the cup and the refrigerator hum was a little loud, but the bed was great.

    « Great staff »

    great staff and very accomidating - so friendly and welcoming and we have stayed here 3 times this year - even if it was further away from the winerys that we visited. An excellent choise and again a very great staff --- we really enjoyed our stay and the staff helped that a great deal. I would recommend this motel to anyone - we probably won't find another motel with this good of staff--- we have stayed many places and this tops all of them....

    « Our Favorite Hotel »

    The Best Western in Johnson City, TX is our favorite place to stay when we travel. Every single person who works there is so friendly, professional & goes out of their way to make our stay amazing. We used to takes trips to this area about once a year, but since finding this hotel, we now come about once a month. Everything about this place is fantastic... the staff, the rooms, the breakfast, the location. I wish every place we stayed took this much care.

    « 2nd STAY, GREAT NIGHT »

    Great stop. Quiet and clean. Older motel, but they have done well to keep it up to date, especially the breakfast area. Great breakfast with eggs, a meat and biscuits and gravey. Easy in and out and the staff was friendly.

    « Very giod »

    Stayed 2 nights. Clean room. The first breakfast was excellent with REAL scrambled eggs, bacon, potatoes. Second breakfast not so great for us as it was more Mexican style with tacos and that bean thing. Nice quiet room but I don't think it was full. Would stay again just for the eggs!

    « One my best experiences!! »

    Slept fantastically! The bedroom was spacious and very comfortable. We heard absolutely no street noise despite being facing onto a busy road. Breakfast was amazing! Fresh fruit. Plenty of options. Staff was so kind. The night shift was very accommodating and informative about the local area. The owner is also nice.

    « Trip to Dallas »

    This is hotel in Johnson City is about halfway from McAllen to Dallas. We travel with two dogs and they are welcome here. There is a nice park to take the dogs to exercise them. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

    « Great Breakfast, good value, convenient location »

    The rooms were very clean. The breakfast was very good.It was prepared by a friendly lady named Beanie. We really enjoyed the food and the conversation.It is located at the intersection 281 and 290, so it has convenient. access.

    « Surprisingly good but towels need to be bleached! »

    We visited Pedernales Falls with our daughter and son in law. I booked 2 rooms for 2 nights with king beds. It had been about 10 years since we've stayed in a Best Western chain but in the area of Pedernales Johnson City, the options were few and we didn't want to have to drive a long distance after a day of hiking. Check in was a breeze. Stephanie at the reception desk was super nice. The room was a nice size and clean. Bed was comfortable. One big comment and big no-no was that some of the towels has stains on them. They appeared clean but need to use more bleach! Free breakfast was a big plus and very good.

    « Handicap Accessible »

    Handicapped Room only had a Queen Bed which is inadequate when one person is handicapped. Only one set of towels per person which was inadequate in my case. The breakfast included eggs and sausage with gravy...real comfort food.

    « Best western always the best »

    I have stayed at best western on most of my travel and have been very satisfied this year at Johnston city was no exception enjoyed the area of the wineries my niece had her wedding at one of the wineries if you in the area stay at Best Western and visit the wineries

    « Great Breakfast! »

    We were really impressed that the breakfast buffet included fresh strawberries, blueberries and kiwi fruit! The hotel was pleasant, if fairly old, and a good place to stay--but more expensive than most places we have stayed.

    « consistently good »

    always stay here when visiting this area near Pedernales Falls, Fredericksburg, etc...hotel has always provided clean, comfy accommodations & generous fresh breakfast...nice staff & owner, too...highly recommended!

    « Staying one night for a Wedding Venue in Dripping Springs Tx »

    In the process of phone calls and trying to find a good price on a one night stay near a scheduled Family Wedding Event in Dripping Springs Tx. I happened to call this location in Johnson City just one day prior, this hotel is only about 25min away from the wedding venue. I never booked a room at all but remembered the reasonable price. Upon making my commute to the Wedding venue I called, and even stopped at other Inn's, The pricing for a one night stay was outrageous! Amazingly! When I called this place again to see their availability, the price was the same and our stay was absolutely comfortable. The staff were very kind and informative. Thanks For your Hospitality Best Western Inn! I plan to go back for my own relaxation!

    « Hurricane Harvey »

    My husband and I enjoyed our stay with our 3 dogs. This hotel has a dog area, picnic tables and a gazebo. Everyone was very friendly and kind. Other guest who fled from the hurricane also had dogs. I was a great place.

    « Clean, Peaceful »

    We vacationed in the Hill Country and wanted a centralized location, and Johnson City Best Western was our choice. If you don't mind driving out of town for restaurants like McDonalds, Whataburger, etc., you will not go wrong staying here. It is clean, peaceful and the staff is wonderful. Their continental breakfast is really good; their scrambled eggs are made using fresh eggs. We highly recommend Pecan Street Brewing for a great meal with super friendly service. Thank you for making our stay so pleasant!

    « Family vacation »

    This hotel was centrally located to all the places we want to visit. We look forward to going back but this time in cooler weather. The staff were great and very helpful. The breakfast was one of the best we have had at any hotel.

    « stay at motel »

    The motel was very clean and well maintained. Excellent location for the motel, and the price was perfect. The breakfast was well layed out and was always well stocked. The coffee served all night long was good also.

    « Great Best Western in Johnson City »

    Great place to stay in Johnson City. Front desk personnel went above & beyond - thank you Stephanie! Very comfy and nice. Will definitely stay here again - reasonable price and worked great for what I needed for my trip to this area.

    « Hill Country Girls Weekend »

    Two thumbs up! Entire staff was gracious and professional. They had a genuine desire to make not only your stay with them enjoyable but were also helpful with dining and entertainment suggestions for the area. The breakfasts were outstanding!! Great choices and the full breakfast entree dishes were always filled, hot and delicious. A definite to revisit and to recommend to others, as well!

    « Good stay »

    Ladies at front desk were very nice and professional. Rooms were clean and comfy. Breakfast was great. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in this area. The price was very reasonable.

    « Our stay at Best Western »

    This was a great hotel to stay at when in Johnson City. The room was very nice, beds comfortable and the grounds were very nice. The breakfast was nice and hot, with waffles, eggs, bacon and assorted other items.

    « Happy! »

    We had to stay in this hotel because we were here for a friend's wedding in dripping springs and her hotel wasn't dog friendly. They let your dog go swimming in the pool. The price was amazing and they have a dog park area which was super convenient. The rooms had great counter space. We were beyond happy with this. Marble falls is a 20 min drive has great Italian and right next to the hotel had such good burger and chicken tenders

    « Vacation »

    Excellent stay! Very nice and clean hotel. Staff was wonderful and friendly! We will stay here again. It was in a great location, which allowed us to visit different areas of The Hill Country. Rates were very affordable.

    « Clean and great service »

    Great motel with very helpful, friendly staff. The staff in the front handed my kids goodies, like coloring papers, crayons, 4th of July stuff. It was a great touch. The breakfast was nice and they serve until 10, which is nice compared to most hotels that stop 9. Will definitely stay again.

    « Not a lot of choice in Johnson City »

    We were staying at this motel to attend a wedding being held at a farmhouse just down Hwy 290, and this is the only choice in Johnson City tied to a national chain. I have stayed in several Best Western properties in the U.S. and Europe and have always had good luck with the brand. The front desk staff was friendly if a little rushed. The motel was also accommodating a lot of bikers during our stay so they property was close to sold out for the weekend. Though the bikers were nice, you could definitely hear the roar of their loud motorcycles as they came and went. Luckily, they were pretty quiet overnight. We were assigned a room on the second floor. The room decor was very dated. The beds were a little firm yet also somehow lumpy. The vanity was outside the main bathroom, which made using it in the middle of the night wake the other person in the room. There was also a mildew smell about the room (maybe that was the room A/C) though in general everything seemed clean. It was cricket season or something because they were all over the place at this motel. You couldn't step outside without stepping on one, and they were super concentrated around the vending machines. Nothing like the crunch of bugs under your feet to make a good impression. The one bright side is that the pancakes at breakfast were good. In addition, my friend's parents booked a room here. Our rooms were booked several months in advance when there was plenty of availability, and it was noted that one room needed to be handicapped accessible since my friend's stepfather had suffered a stroke earlier in the year. When we arrived, they had been assigned a standard room instead. The front desk said the people in the other accessible rooms had stayed over from previous nights. It's pretty standard to tell guests they cannot continue occupying an accessible room that's been promised to future guests, but this motel did not honor that, and they did not ask any of the guests to vacate for the second night. Not having an accessible bathroom really caused a hardship for his parents, but at that point there was no other place in Johnson City to go. If you absolutely need an accessible room, do not trust this property to have one available for you. Overall, I was not satisfied with this experience even though I understood going in that it was a motel and not a full-service hotel. This property does a disservice to the Best Western brand. This room was also more expensive than a much nicer room in Austin at a La Quinta the night before, so it was a really poor value for the money spent. I would recommend finding a place in a neighboring town or use a house-rental service instead.

    « Great staff »

    There was a mix-up in my hotel reservation and the ladies at the front desk were a blessing when I checked in. I was traveling with a large group. The 2 front desk ladies (Stephanie & Stacy) were great and they got us checked in and went out of their way to make sure everything was ok. Will stay here again. The rooms were good and the breakfast was fresh and good.

    « Quick overnight stay before San Antonio »

    We needed a quick place to stay while visiting the Hamilton Pool Preserve. We found this hotel, the rates looked good so we booked. The staff was super friendly and the stay was awesome!! We would definitely recommend!

    « They try hard »

    The rooms are old and a bit dated but clean. My room was a bit dark. Very old shower and tub. Beds were comfortable and clean. No elevator to second floor. They had a large choice of items for breakfast with real eggs and bacon. At checkout they gave me a little 'for the road' basket of candy.

    « Weekend trip »

    We stayed in Johnson City only because we could not find anything in Stonewall. We are Platinum members and they recognized that upon our check in with offer of extra points or gift bag. Front desk was very nice and informative. They have a nice breakfast to include eggs, bacon, biscuits/gravy and waffles. Nice area to eat your breakfast as well. Very good coffee. Location is good if have event in Johnson City but kind of far if your activities are in Stonewall or Fredericksburg. Made for long drive late at night. Lots of critters out! Rooms are clean. However, walls are PAPER THIN. Had neighbors up past midnight and then other side up at 6:00 AM. I did not sleep well at all. It sounds like they are just outside your door. Regardless of what time it is, you can still hear them talking and TV playing. Did not utilize pool area so could not rate that but looked okay. Overall, average hotel for Johnson City visit or passing through. Restaurants are good and parks look great, but other than that not much else to do there.

    « very good for what it is -- & apparently among the best in the area »

    We stayed at the Best Western in Johnson City when in town for a wedding in Hill Country. A lot of the other guests opted to stay in Fredericksburg because it seemed like the more interesting place, but I was put off by the so-so to iffy ratings of the accommodations there. The Best Western might have less to offer in terms of fancy amenities and posh stuff right outside its door, but it seemed like everyone who stayed there had a good experience. I'm glad I trusted my instincts! The Best Western is a fine roadside hotel in a place without a lot of options, and the people who work there are CLEARLY interested in making sure you have a good stay. The front desk staff are super helpful. The rooms are a little dreary but they're clean & perfectly adequate if you mostly need a place to crash. There is a pleasant small sort of park with a gazebo next to the property where kids could play or a dog could be walked. Good small pool for kids to jump in. The free breakfast buffet has Texas-shaped waffles and the staff around the breakfast room bend over backwards to make sure you have what you need. When we checked out, we got a roll of lifesavers with a sort of decorative sticker on it to thank us for staying there. How often does that happen? BUT ALSO: a bunch of those other people going to the wedding who opted to stay in Fredericksburg had bad experiences at their 'better' hotels: no hot water, broken AC, room not cleaned, room key not working, etc. They paid double what we paid & got one-half as much. Only thing they had that we didn't was cool stuff in walking distance (shopping, wine-tasting, restaurants). We just got in the car in the mornings and drove there to meet them, so I still think we came out ahead. ;0 Our only complaint was that the room was supposed to be non-smoking but when we walked in we got blasted with an icky prominent reek of old cigarette smoke. It was clearly a guest who stayed there not long before us because the smell was less & less each day. Still, it would have been good if the room could have been aired out before a guest was put in it. But that was the only real downside of our stay.

    « great stay »

    This Hotel in Johnson City was in the heart of all the wonderful little towns to visit. The staff and services were wonderful. The internet was terrible but they are working on fixing the problem. Already booked for next year!

    « Nice stay! »

    My husband & I had a nice one night stay at the Best Western. We were especially impressed with the hospitality of the front desk staff. The room was clean and comfortable. We would not hesitate to stay here again when in the area.

    « Good 3 star place »

    We stay here mainly for location in the hill country without the crowds of F-burg. The rooms are nice enough altho the price went up this year because they are "remodeled". We didn't notice any remodeling. They have a pool, a nice gazebo and park like grounds The front desk staff is very nice.

    « Great experience for wedding week-end »

    The staff at this Best Western is wonderful. Everyone was helpful and considerate. They even found a pair of slacks for my husband to wear 45 minutes before we had to be at a wedding! There are fresh cookies at the counter, a nice breakfast, pool and park area. This property is very well maintained and close to wineries, state parks, LBJ Ranch and other areas of interest. It's a great value and we were happy to be out of Fredericksburg, which is already packed with people and more expensive. This is a great family location and I think kids would love the pool area and fun decorations.

    « Life Saver When You're Camping and a Storm Rolls In »

    A friend and I were primitive camping at Pedernales Falls State Park when we realized we really needed to get something substantial to eat. So, we hike out, drive to Johnson City, and have dinner. While dining, a massive (unexpected) thunderstorm rolls in. It's pouring, thundering, and lightening everywhere. We decide we don't feel like hiking back in (2 miles) to sleep outside in this weather. That's where the West Western comes into play! They had a room available for us, and we were delighted to be able to sleep indoors! The front desk woman was super sweet and mentioned that they frequently get campers from the park when the weather turns. My legs were aching (we'd hiked 4 miles that afternoon, 2 of which carrying camping gear) and I had blisters on my feet. I called the front desk and was provided with pain reliever free of charge. I was SO grateful, because it helped me actually get to sleep that night! The room was clean, the beds comfortable. We were delighted to be safe from the storm, dry, and watching cable! We indulged in the free breakfast, fueling our bodies (we still had to hike back in and pack up our camp because we'd abandoned all of our gear there)! The Best Western Johnson City Inn was exactly what we needed!

    « Extremely nice, great value, super Wi-Fi and staff »

    Stayed there in March 2017. Parking is right outside the room door. Every aspect of the stay was very very good. WiFi access easy and connection very good and reliable. Would stay here again. Convenient location on the way to Fredericksburg from Austin, not far from Johnson ranch.

    « A great place to stay in the Hill Country in Texas »

    We stay here when we go to the Hill Country. It is convenient to the places we like to go to. The breakfast makes the stay great. The grounds are a big reason we stay here. It is a place that we don't have to sit in the room but can sit outside in the gazebo or other seating areas. Well kept and comfortable.

    « Great stay »

    Good location, tasty breakfast, clean and comfortable room, and great customer service. We enjoyed our stay. I would recommend for the price value along travel of US highway 281 from Marble Falls to San Antonio.

    « The Perfect Blend of Charm, Personality, & Price »

    I love this BW! This is the first time I've seen a "themed" BW, which really sets it apart from the rest. The Texas theme is everywhere, from the flags, windmill, the relaxing iron cowboy to the iron work along the railings. But a theme can only take you so far...and that's where the friendly staff come into play. They are knowledgeable about the area and offer up suggestions for places to eat and things to do. The rooms are clean and comfortable, which is an essential element for an enjoyable stay. Our only disappointment is that the A/C unit was a bit noisy, and when running the room was cool...but as soon as the A/C stopped running the room was warm and a bit stuffy. (Not enough to complain in the middle of the night, though.) Overall the hotel is very quiet, and has a lovely park with a relaxing gazebo perfect to sit outside and enjoy a warm Texas evening. And...the price is a bargain for the area. I would gladly stay here again.

    « Wonderful »

    We stopped one night and they had a room. The staff wad very kind, helpful and personable. The property was clean and quiet despite being a lot of vehicles there. Would recommend this place and stay here again

    « What more could you possibly want? »

    We needed one night, between one birding location and the next. Johnson City fitted the bill. Just a regular motel, you might think but it would be difficult to think of something this place lacks. It would be hard to find fault, so we are not going to try. Reception, the room, breakfast - ah yes: breakfast. When was the last time you could watch someone scramble your (real) eggs? Faultless - and what a bargain. And PS: the pool surround looks like something straight out of Tuscany. A stay to remember . . . fondly.

    « Top, management cares for what I consider important »

    THE surprise during our 3-weeks trip to the US. Front desk clerk thanked me for my loyalty with the brand and offered a welcome gift (by the way the ONLY Best Western property out of seven on this trip, that even mentioned my diamond membership.) + Board near front desk with a list of breakfast items offered (a nice idea) + Great breakfast: FRESH raspberries, blackberries and blueberries that were great with yogurt and waffles. We travel extensively, consequently many properties to compare with, but I cannot recall even expensive hotels which offer fresh berries. + Spotless clean + Decent sized pool + Gardenlike picnic area with a gazebo + Friendly, helpful and attentive staff + Great value + Quiet/no traffic noise although close to major highway The management apparently cares for premises, rooms, guests and service. I would be back in an instant. Highly recommended.

    « Friendly Stay »

    This isn't a fancy hotel but they go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. We needed a place to nap and sleep between seeing parks in the area. The check-in very very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are basic but clean. Free internet. The free breakfast was hot and yummy - including those iconic Texas shaped BW waffles. We didn't try the pool, but we did spend an evening in the park/garden, which had a swing and was lovely. Even though it is right on the highway - the room was very quiet. They had treat bags at check-out. It fit our needs for this trip perfectly.

    « So very glad we stayed here vs: Fredericksburg »

    When in the area, we generally stay in Fredericksburg, but just to change things up, we choose to stay in Johnson City. Best Western had the best reviews, and now I see why. Price was great, staff were very helpful and welcoming. Accommodations were just what we were looking for. Very clean, and comfortable. We were greeted with a warm smile and home made cake when we checked in. The clerk noticed we had a Harley Davidson Credit card and said, "come in tomorrow and I'll have something for you." Turned out they make up these little gift bags for member of Harley Davidson. It was a hadmade "Hog bag" with lolly pops, a bandana, hand sanitizer. Really cute. Our room was very clean and the stuffed chair was only 2 weeks old. Bed was comfortable. They no longer provide individual bottles of shampoo, and body soap, like so many places, so we always bring our own. I've had some bad reactions in the past. Next morning we went to the free breakfast, and it was the BEST I'd ever had. Eggs were REAL, not powered. They had make your own waffles which were better than I'd had anywhere else. They coffee was unique, out of a machine that had three levels of coffee (weak, medium, strong). Kind of cool, I mixed the medium and strong and it was perfect. This machine also has hot water to make hot tea or coco or instant oatmeal. They had the usual other breakfast foods, pastries, muffins, bagles, bread and a toaster. The other hot items were biscuits, gravy, and sausage patties which we enjoyed. They also had cold cereal, fruit, etc. From what we saw, the lobby was clean and well cared for. I WILL stay here next time we are in the area. I had a bit of a problem connecting to the internet, and called the front desk. Next thing I knew, the clerk was knocking on my door to help me. WOW, never had that kind of assistance ever! We stayed 2 nights and kind of wish we could of stayed longer. Can't wait for our next trip just to come here.

    « Convinient and enjoyable »

    Wonderful stay made by cheerful and friendly staff and charming garden. The rooms, while average looking were comfortable and met our needs for a stopover in the Hill country. Breakfast was very good with healthy and filling choice. We especially appreciated fresh berries. What could be improved? - the toiletries dispensers in the bathroom made the hotel feel cheap. The internet in our room was very slow - it was impossible to connect. Fortunately a charming gazebo offered note only a pleasant, charming view of rose garden but greatly improved connectivity.All in all, we were happy with our stay. The staff was wonderful at both check in and check out. The gift and cupcakes upon checkout were a very nice touch. The humorous posts resembling historic marking are much appreciated.

    Hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly. Easy access from the main road and many restaurants near by. The property had a nice gazebo with table and chairs. I would definitely stay there again.

    « Great value, excellent facility »

    conveniently located; very good and easy to access WiFi; front desk staff very pleasant and helpful and professional; rooms open directly into parking lot (park outside your door); very nice facility; clean, quiet; nice free breakfast

    « Super Nice Staff! »

    It is a small yet very cozy hotel. The staff was amazing and rooms were always kept clean. They have an amazing lady who comes to cook a fresh cooked breakfast each morning and it is delicious! I will be going back to this hotel if I ever decide to go back to Johnson City! Keep up the good work!

    « Motorcycle friendly »

    I left Dallas mid afternoon was taking a solo trip down south checking out all the side roads and enjoying the local flavors? I realized it was getting late the sun was going down and personally the back roads are not safe for traveling on a motorcycle especially when you see all kinds of dead things on the side of the road? I stopped at a gas station filled up my tank and use trip advisor and find a local hotel? Front desk was busy with two other customers and she said to me can you wait a minute I have a slight emergency I'll be right back? I waited got a great deal for my wait she brought me into the kitchen and gave me a few treats to tide me over till morning? Very friendly staff,room was clean and have a microwave and mini fridge decent variety of TV shows to keep me entertained till morning? Breakfast was adequate and freshly cooked? Who could ask for anything more. The only uncomfortable moment was stepping in dog poop from the person who was residing next to me who chose not to clean it up? Unfortunately I had no idea it was on my boot until I got into the hotel ... once realizing this took the boots outside to try and clean them? Pet owners need to be responsible. That was the only uncomfortable moment during my stay? Otherwise the hotel, their staff,the food was great!!

    « Wine-Country Overnight »

    Best Western was a good value in a very over-priced area of Texas. The wine country hotels/motels are gouging. Johnson City was centrally located and excellent staff. Complimentary Breakfast was fresh and nice selection.


    We had a late arrival and it was no problem!! Very Friendly staff and just a wonderful room, clean and pretty plus the front desk called about 30 minutes after arrival to make sure we didn't need anything. AC was great, bed was comfortable, and room was just relaxing. Exceptional Breakfast with something for everyone, waffles, cereal, fruit, yogurt, eggs, sausage, gravy, and biscuits!! LOVED IT

    « Good place to stay »

    Typical motel. Room was decent and pretty clean. Workers were so very nice and helpful. Breakfast was ok. Nice goody bag and free treats at the front desk. They even had a free day bag with bottled water, granola bar and an apple to take with you.

    « A comfy gem in the hill country »

    My husband and I were with a group from Houston touring the hill country with a focus on birds, bats, bees and wine. We stayed at this centrally located hotel in darling Johnson City. It is the epitome of sweet small town Texas hospitality. There is even a country cafe next door for convenience. About 10 minutes after entering our room we got a phone call from the desk to ask how everything was-who does that anymore? I think this area is full of interesting places which people from other parts of the country and world should see to get a feeling for the real Texas.

    « fabulous,and a better stay and drive to Fredericksburg. »

    My husband and i stayed here this weekend and it was wonderful, clean, and quiet. The staff was spot on the and breakfast was good. Very reasonable and cheaper than staying in Fredericksburg. I will drive the 38 miles and save the 100.00. Will stay there everytime i visit, which is often.

    « Good quality hotel »

    « Beat Western Johnson City, TX »

    Nice hotel. They have put a lot of work in to making it look unique. Room was clean and comfortable. There is a nice garden to relax in. The staff was great. Near the brewpub and only 17 miles from the state parks.

    « It felt like a Bed & Breakfast. »

    I have never noticed a hotel with SO many personal touches. It felt like I had walked into someone's home when I walked into the lobby. The young lady at the front desk was very helpful on local attractions. She offered to call & make reservations for us wherever we chose for dinner.They had a full hot breakfast that I was highly impressed with. I am used to traveling & staying in the same boring rooms with all the same things in them. If youre looking for something different, Best Western Johnson City is the place to go. They have truly added a personal touch to the property that makes it stand out from all other Best Western, Very pleased!

    « Every thing you need is here. »

    Right in Johnson City. Clean, the best ever breakfast, full and hot. Easy to get your reservation and people are very friendly at entering the motel and will accommodate you in anyway they can. Have our king size on the first floor and hope to go back again for another stay during football season.

    « Welcoming feeling! »

    Excellent service and caring people. Hotel surroundings and room were very clean. Internet service was fast; not only in the room but also in the lobby What else could I ask for? I would highly recommend this hotel to family and friends.

    « very accomadating »

    The location of the hotel was central for our visits to the area. Hotel was very clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Very good breakfast.Rooms are big. Free WiFi. Had a nice onsite park for picnic and relaxing.

    « Destination Art...Johnson City »

    Best Western Johnson City is the perfect outpost to hang your hat when on the search for art, antiques and collectibles. It's just down the street from a photography gallery and contemporary art gallery. Several gift shops, eateries, and wine tasting rooms. Fabulous destination for those who like to wander and enjoy. Take your camera to capture the flavor of a small Texas town, visit LBJ's boyhood home, and chat it up with the shopkeepers. Plan to stay the whole day - you'll be entertained.

    « Great hotel stay »

    Easy to make a reservation and plan trip; nice facility; comfortable and ease of access to room and amenities; great breakfast presentation and appropriate meal choices and items; friendly staff and assistance at both check-in as well as check-out; A/C worked very well in room for summer in Texas

    « A friend in time of need »

    We were on our way to Fredericksburg on Saturday, June 4 when we experienced car trouble that caused us to have too stay over 2 nights before we were able to see the mechanic on Monday the 6th. It took all day long to make the car repairs and the Manager Goga and front desk help Tracy worked with us to keep us comfortable until we could leave. The rate was wonderful, the room was clean, the breakfast was pretty good and what could have been a bad experience was made easier by these wonderful people and Best Western Hotel!

    « vacation travel »

    this was a nice night stay for our traveling group. the staff was friendly and helpful. i just with johnson city had more places to eat that stay open late. The rooms were clean and comfortable. parking was adequate. we arrived late and were checked in quickly and efficiently. this was a comfortable stop on our way to padre.

    « "Wedding Hotel Stay" »

    Dripping Springs was venue for the wedding we attended. Needed a hotel that was dog friendly,and charged a small fee for a pet (ONLY$10.00 PER NIGHT). This BW Hotel had a gazebo outside with chairs and table to dine on, a swing on the lawn property, and large grassy area with trees for the dog to roam. This hotel was only 23 miles from Dripping Springs. The reception staff was friendly, accomadating and the Continental breakfast was best ever of any hotel I have stayed!!

    « spent 2 nights. June 29th and june 30th. »

    The staff was excellent. Very courteous and took care of all our needs. The rooms were very clean and maintained. Breakfast was very good. The food was nice and hot. The lady there kept it very well stocked and the tables clean. Ladies at check in were very nice. They answered my questions and also seemed to know the area very well.

    « Great hotel »

    I stayed here for a sporting event at nearby Pedernales State Park and didn't want to camp due to the threat of rain. I travel quite a bit and generally know what I'm in for when staying at an inexpensive place in a small town (nothing good)... but I must admit that I was delighted by the entire experience here. The staff was fantastic from start to finish, the room was clean and well-appointed, and the shower was great. On the downside: the refrigerator was a bit loud (I unplugged it), and the driveway's proximity to a major intersection made entering and leaving the property a little tricky sometimes. I'll likely stay here again the next time my travels bring me to the area.

    « They Helped! »

    Our first room had AC problems; they made sure to move us without questions, into a room that was very cool. They also gave us a bottle of wine for our troubles. It is close to so many good Hill Country sites and has a unique sense of nostalgia and place.

    « Clean and friendly staff »

    We stayed here when my husband ran a marathon in the area. Clean rooms that smelled nice. Nothing fancy but certainly meets your needs and is well maintained. Friendly staff. Beautiful outdoor area to sit and enjoy a beautiful Texas morning or evening. We will stay again during future marathons!

    « Staff at this hotel was excellent »

    We needed a late check out and management authorized that for us. However we missed the requested checkout time and were late. Management was very gracious and understanding, they accommodated us anyway. We were able to shower and quickly and hit the road. We were pleasantly surprised at the level of service at this hotel. I intend to stay here again each time It travel this way.

    « The only Motel within 30 Miles »

    Stayed here four nights. A great jumping off place for the surrounding area. A drive up to your door type motel which I like. The front desk person was very nice and gave me a veterans discount. Each day there was a different gal at the front desk and all were nice and helpful. The breakfast was the best we encountered on our two week trip. The room was pretty good for an older motel. No complaints.

    « Only hotel in town - still great! »

    The Best Western is the only hotel in Johnson City, TX so you'd think they might be tempted to slack off. Not so here. From check in to check out they treated us well. When we first arrived we were a little worried as there was a lot of kid noise at the pool. Once we got into our room however, it was quiet and peaceful. This is not a 5 star hotel but it's clean and comfortable. My wife did her usual "bed bug check" and found nothing. That's great this time of year in Texas. The room smelled clean and the bedding was comfortable. The free breakfast had the usual choices and tasted good. We'll return when in the area.

    « Awesome Service »

    Overall pretty clean. The sheets did have some orangey stains on them, but everything else was pretty clean. The beds are comfy, actually got a good night's sleep. The service really is amazing. It's better than some big named hotels I've stayed in. Definitely will stay here when we come into this area. Highly recommended!

    « Good location »

    We wanted to visit the LBJ family, boyhood house and the Texas White House at LBJ ranch. The location was perfect for this. The staff was friendly and helpful. We appreciated the guest laundry. The room was serviceable. Wifi was slow. Similarly prices BW this one could we updated.

    « Satisfied Return Customer »

    We have had reason to visit Johnson City repeatedly this year, business and pleasure, and have always found this hotel to be very welcoming and comfortable. While it is an older hotel, the owners and staff obviously make a great effort to maintain it, and each time we come, we notice changes and updates to improve it even further. Highly recommend it for good value and super welcoming attitude. Just a note: wonder about some of the negative reviews on here...our own experiences do not jive with some of the stories, and it makes me question if the other reviewers have mixed up this BW with some other place? ALWAYS been a good experience for us.

    « No hot water »

    The overall stay was good. Beds were good. Took a while for someone to check me in. I went to take a shower and there was no hot water. I wouldn't take a chance on staying there again. I like my showers.

    « Wonderful place »

    We just love to stay at this hotel! Friendly staff! Wonderful breakfast! Just love all the items they have for breakfast! Fresh eggs, yogurt, waffles, biscuits and gravy! Clean rooms, freshly updated rooms! Most wonderful park just to enjoy the day at! Many extras staying here!

    « Best hotel in Johnson City »

    Mainly because it's about the only hotel in Johnson City. But it's clean, well maintained, and friendly. The breakfast buffet was good. There's good food within walking or a short driving distance. All in all, better than I expected for a small South Texas motel.

    « Meat on the Breakfast Menu »

    Our room had a fridge, microwave, iron, ironing board, TV, hair dryer and coffee maker. We had internet issues--couldn't sign on the night we arrived, but were able to sign on the next morning. The hotel was a little pricey for the town, but they made up for it by being the only hotel on the trip with meat on the breakfast menu. Accompanying eggs and sausage was cereal, fruit, and waffles in the shape of Texas. The desk staff was nice according to my husband.

    « Nice Motel for a short visit in a very small town »

    Rooms are clean and I have noticed the last couple of times I have stayed there seems to be some remodeling going on with new furniture etc. The staff are friendly and helpful when needed. The continental breakfast is just fine and comparable to others.

    « Don't stay at this nasty hotel »

    First up: backed-up toilet. Maintenance brought Plumbers Helper and fixed. Next: roach crawling on telephone going after soiled paper towel on the floor. After swatting that, reached for the remote. Didn't work. Exasperated, plugged in my phone to recharge for the morning. Nope. No plugs worked. Really? So gave up and went to bed. Next morning noticed how dirty and truly nasty this place was. Very old, hasn't been painted in years. The breakfast was passable. Horrible experience. couldn't wait to get out of there.

    « not the worst place... but not the best either »

    we stayed here after a wedding in dripping springs and was disappointed in the place for the price. For 109$ I felt like I was getting ripped off. Hotel (Motel Cough, Cough) was hot and smelt of old cigs, and the staff was ok just not very lively. I'm a Hilton guy and I wasn't expecting the double tree but I've paid similar fees at nice establishments in Austin compared to this place and I felt like I was stolen from. It was a place to sleep and I did that so I made it, just felt like I was over charged for a room that I could get for 20$ in Mexico!!

    « Very Good based on location - »

    This hotel is the only game in town with a pool. A must have for me. I have been coming to this Best Western regularly for more than 10 years. What everyone needs to know is that Johnson City is a small town so this is the best commercial property for lodging when you want hotel amenities. Originally, as with many Best Westerns they had a strong local theme. In this case, flower gardens (a nod to Lady Bird Johnson) and a strong Texas theme. I know the history of the change in management and I can see that this place is better than it was a couple of years ago. I travel to Johnson City so that I can go back and forth between Johnson City and Blanco for business/pleasure trips. I would love to see Johnson City give Blanco a run for their money BW to BW. In the meantime, the room was clean and everything worked. The staff quickly moved me from an upstairs room next to a party group with smokers on the balcony to a downstairs room and away from them even being fully booked. This is a shout out to the management on duty Friday night. The pool is your standard "cement pond" but I get the best tan at this pool even in February and they have surrounded the pool with tightly planted cedars that keep the pool totally private and I love this detail. This is a small town BW and you need to keep that in mind to be fair. The office has always been helpful to me and do a great job! I am a loyal customer to Johnson City Best Western!

    « great value and breakfast »

    Clean rooms, good locations and wonderful breakfast which lasted for the breakfast hours and was constantly refilled. Location was excellent and made it easy to get around the Hill Country and visit all the tourist attractions

    « Retro comfort »

    Loved the wrought iron railings with western scenes upstairs along with other outdoor decorative accents. Room was fine -comfortable and clean- even tho decor a bit dated. Across the parking lot was a beautiful park-like setting with big trees, tons of roses, & a gazebo. Very relaxing & lovely after a long day's drive. Great for all ages! (Would skip the pool.) Staff was super nice too, so for us, it was a great choice.

    « Excellent »

    This hotel was recommended to me by a friend, and it was a exactly what I was looking for. I will recommend this hotel to others. Two queen sized beds in a good sized room, attractive, very clean and the beds were very comfortable. It was better than the room we had in Fredericksburg-which was double the price. It was a great value and very restful, which is exactly what we wanted. Loved that it had a refrigerator & a microwave-plus WIFI & a Good TV. Very enjoyable for the end of our "girls weekend". Plus it is located between two restaurants for lunch!

    « B »

    I would highly recommend this hotel. The staff and grounds are outstanding. It is easy to get to several "big" cities from this location, such as Austin. I have stayed at this hotel many times and have never been disappointed in any way. I will be going back and will encourage family and friends to use this hotel.

    « Nothing to Sing About »

    This is an older Motel in the middle of town. If you just need a place to sleep overnight it will do. The refrigerator made a buzzing noise all night when it recycled. Also the bed was all right but not plush by any means. There was hot water in the sink but not in the bathtub so I skipped the morning shower. Then I figured out that the control panel was installed upside down. There was the typical breakfast menu served in most motels. The exception was the scrambled eggs mixed with bits of onion and sausage.

    « Wonderful Experience »

    This is an extremely nice hotel in every way. We were very impressed with the friendly and professional staff, the cleanliness of the entire facility, and the great breakfast. We felt the price was very good and we definitely would stay there again.

    « Wifi did not work, but overall pleasant »

    Booked this place as it was one of the only available, and got good reviews. We needed reliable wifi for business purposes, and unfortunately, the wifi did not work. It was one of those infuriating problems, where we could physically connect, but their login page looked like it was recently updated, and had an error. We wasted a lot of time thinking it was our fault, then contacted the front desk. They rebooted everything, but we still had the problem. This was compounded as we could not find wifi nearby - we called subway. Maybe McDonalds has it. There appears to be problems getting wifi around here - in this specific case, though ( I'm a techie ) it was not an internet problem, but local to the Best Western login page. To their credit, the management of Best Western gave us 25% off - they handled it well - this is why I did not give them a lower rating. The grounds were nice, as well, with some nice touches. Breakfast was surprisingly good, in a nice room as well.

    « Just What You'd Expect in a Small Town »

    Stayed two nights here since Fredericksburg facilities were not available because of spring break. This is a true motel setup and no frills. In fact people filled their ice chests leaving the machine empty and we had to go downstairs to another machine. Room is sufficient, and clean. Beds comfy. Breakfast ran til 10:00, a real plus. It included beans tortillas and salsa as well as the usual waffles, eggs, sausage.... Nice staff.

    « Everything I needed »

    Hotel is very conveniently located. Bed firm enough for me, room reasonably quiet, pleasant staff. Had to grab breakfast to go, but had enough to chose from and it was good. Spacious room, plenty of room to work. Glad I stayed. No elevator, curtains didn't quite close, but I had a clip in my bag.

    « Very very dissatisfied »

    Very incompetent front desk attendant, he allowed someone else to check in under my name. he did not check ID or credit card. Room was not what I reserved or on the floor I reserved. The room was very dirty and smelled. The air conditioners dial was broken, there was no cold water coming out of the sink, our room had only hot water in the sink. Was very very dissatisfied with my stay at this hotel.

    « Great value »

    Check in was quick, friendly and professional. . The room was clean and the bed comfortable. I enjoyed having so many pillows. We asked for a recommendation on dinner and were told about El Agave next door. It was perfect for what we wanted. We also got directions to the wedding venue. The breakfast was a nice mix of offerings. I am already planning a return trip to Johnson city and I will stay at Best Western.

    « Friendly staff! »

    We had a nice stay at this Best Western. Rooms were clean. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was good. We would stay there again. Kids swam in pool that was well kept. This is a motel where the doors open to the outside so there was a little extra noise but that was too bad.

    « Johnson City »

    We've stayed here three times because it is the only real hotel in the area. It is a sufficient hotel with a good breakfast and helpful people. I do think it is overpriced compared to other Best Westerns.

    « Budget hotel »

    Nice reception area. No one in the food area for breakfast and the food ran out and some was cold. The receptionist on check in however gave us some candies which we thought was a nice touch on arrival. We didn't swim. Looked like a small pool. Had a lot of men on the balconies staring at us on arrival. That could be unnerving but could have been an isolated instance. Was still afraid even though was with my husband. Kind of had a creepy vibe because of that. Good price and was close to the sightseeing that we were doing so that was why we decided on this hotel. Pricey for what you get. Older hotel.

    « Great value and excellent area for pets »

    We enjoyed our stay in the hill country and Best Western offered the best value we found in the area. There is a large, shaded area with a pavilion, cedar swing, and large trees to walk around after a long drive and also let your pet stretch their legs. The breakfast was very good quality for a standard motel. Rooms were nice and quiet as well and this location is pet friendly!

    « Stayed for the location »

    Very clean. Friendly staff. Fridge in the room. Low price. Breakfast was very average. Bananas were old, food was just ok. Great for cereal/muffin lovers. I just don't like motels with outside doors but not many to chose from in a small town. Office & surroundings were well decorated.

    « Delightful and surprising »

    who knew such a little gem would be found in tiny Johnson City? all the usual amenities plus some very unusual ones: wine, chocolates, & towels folded into hearts for Valentine's Day?!! welcome surprises from an obviously caring staff...nice people, good service, real breakfast...HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    « Excellent hotel in a cute small town »

    Our stay at the Best Western in Johnson City was a wonderful and unexpected experience. The friendliness of the staff and quality of the room was great. The little extras on Valentine's weekend of roses, wine, and chocolates were very much appreciated and surprising. We normally stay in Fredricksburg for a wine weekend but decided to try Johnson City instead this time and so glad we did. Thanks to the staff for a wonderful weekend stay!

    « Johnson City is lucky... » have this hotel...combines the friendliness and particular charm of the Texas Hill Country with the standards and convenience of a large hotel chain...caring staff, comfortable rooms, generous free breakfasts...location SUPER convenient...extra perk: the pretty little park next door!

    « Very good place to stay »

    This Johnson City hotel is a very good place to stay! Clean rooms and breakfast area, friendly staff & wonderful breakfast. We were there in December & Santa was also there for breakfast for the kids - nice touch!

    « Rainy in Johnson City »

    We arrived in a driving rain storm and felt really fortunate to have a place to stop. The hotel is old and a bit dated, but the staff was friendly and the room was clean, dry, and comfortable. We got down to breakfast a little late, not expecting much. The eggs were real eggs, though, and the bacon was perfect. The coffee was hot and strong.

    « Nicest Heartwarming Holiday Experience »

    Nicest and most appropriate holiday décor we've ever seen in a chain hotel....MORE IMPRESSIVE: the lengths hotel owner & staff went to to help a stranded traveler with a car malfunction and 2 hungry kids...without any fuss (or charge) arrangements were made to find them a room in a fully-booked hotel, ferry the family to another town to get the part needed to repair the car, install the part, plus take the family to get some dinner AND to drive around to see the famous holiday light display!!! All this after 7 pm in heavy rain, cold, and on the busy Thanksgiving weekend! WHY can't other hotels (& businesses!) be like this?! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!!

    It was a delight to return to the Best Western in Johnson City. Had stayed there after Hurricane Ike. Would book it again . Room was always stocked with clean linens and cleaned when we returned . Did not know until we left that breakfast was available.

    « Clean hotel »

    Stayed one day clean, comfortable bed and good showers. Outside had nice decor and a small park with sitting area's and bbq pits. Free breakfast but woke up too late to try. Close to many attractions and restaurants. Would stay there again.

    « A blast from the past. »

    This is a well kept, clean and well managed motel. Rooms are old school but comfortable. Breakfast room has adequate seating and the food is excellent. The main entree varies from day to day. So if staying for several days it does not become "ho hum".

    « Johnson City TX Best Western »

    Though the building is older, effort has been successful to bring it to modern conditions. The room was clean, bed comfortable, internet fast. Breakfast was very good. The staff, particularly the owner, was very attentive. This is a good value if you're in the Johnson City area.

    « Very Satisfied »

    Room was clean and quiet; bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was a full buffet with quality foods that were well presented. Staff was very helpful and flexible. Location allowed us to easily visit the LBJ ranch and boyhood home. Local businesses offered friendly service and reasonably priced meals.

    « Not sure, but hope the sheets were clean »

    When I went in to the lobby to register the first thing I noticed was the stink - not good, but the receptionist was friendly and when I checked out the receptionist was also very friendly. So it's a friendly, but not too clean place. The sheets on the bed appeared to be clean, but they were so wrinkled that it looked as if someone had already slept in the beds. The rooms look worn out and old, but the bed was comfortable. The sink was dirty (hair) and I didn't use the shower/tub. I did worry if the sheets were truly clean because of how sloppily the beds were made. I'm hoping that the maid just didn't know how to make beds properly. I think it was a poor value, given the price.

    « Nice place to stay »

    We stopped here for the night and were pleased with the room and outdoor pool area. Everything was clean and well maintained. The breakfast was very good and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. Nearby restaurant was good place to walk to dinner.

    « Pleasant place to stay »

    We were in Johnson City for five nights and have no complaints about the Best Western. Our room was clean and bed comfortable. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. It really was a nice stay.

    « Decent hotel »

    We stayed here for a local wedding. Room was a good size and had standard hotel furnishings. There was a musty smell in the room and hallway that we could not figure out what it was. We only stayed for a night and it was a decent stay. A/C worked incredibly well and we had trouble getting out of the bed the following morning. Breakfast is your typical continental breakfast.

    Great little place to stay for the weekend. Has a park area for walking dogs and letting the kids run off some energy. Pool is secluded behind trees and shrubs for privacy. Room was sufficient and comfortable. We would stay there again!

    « Basic but Clean »

    We stayed here on our road trip from Austin to Carlsbad. I booked this from Expedia. The room is older but clean. The beds were very comfortable. There is a refrigerator and microwave in the room. They serve breakfast in the morning. I did not go because I wanted another hour of sleep. There is not much in this town but we wanted to see The LBJ Ranch. This town is where LBJ was born....THE RANCH IS NOT TO BE MISSED!

    « Recommend »

    My third year to go run the Texas Lighthouse Hill Ranch Trail Race, and this is the place where I usually stay at. I've never been disappointed. The staff are great, helpful and most important friendly.


    Thankfully we brought our own sheets and towels because there were nasty stains on the sheets, pillows, couch, etc!!!! Save your $100 and find somewhere else to stay. I'd sleep in the truck before I came back! We didn't even want to look at the breakfast because who knows what condition the kitchen is in.

    « Great hotel in the Hill Country »

    We had a great stay here. Staff warm and welcoming. Loved the newspapers and coloring pages and crayons for kids. Room was clean and comfortable, and microwave and fridge worked great. Pool was simple and nice. We would have appreciated the pool towels filled back up each day but not the end of the world. Breakfast was simple and filling. Free eggs and bacon always a good way to start the day. Pet friendly which is great. It is conveniently located near great restaurants and things to do. Love to stay here again soon.
