Best Western Plus
My husband and I stopped overnight at the Best Western Plus in Shamrock on our way westbound on I-40. We've made the trip several times, and we always stop here; it's always a comfortable, pleasant night's stay. Our room was spacious and clean, with a fridge and microwave, and ample room in the bathroom. This isn't a luxury hotel, so there were a few cracked tiles in the shower and a stain on the ottoman, but the carpets were fresh and all the linens were clean. The hotel is definitely attended to on a regular basis, as we saw plenty of evidence of recent remodeling as well as normal upkeep. The full, hot breakfast is complimentary and quite tasty. I used the gym room and it was perfect for a single session, with a treadmill, elliptical trainer, stationary bicycle and small weight machine. Even with its proximity to I-40, the hotel is VERY quiet, and we had an extremely comfortable night's sleep. The A/C kept our room at a nice temperature, which was very appreciated in the summer heat. The Mitchell family restaurant on the grounds has closed, but there are some good options for dining in town. Kudos to David at the front desk for such a nice experience at check-in; he was very welcoming and helped us out with everything from breakfast hours to the wifi password to a great dinner recommendation. All the staff is attentive to the travelers' needs and seem genuinely committed to every guest having a great stay. They certainly succeeded in our case!
June 6,2018 Check in went fine, after that it was all down hill. Our room was warm, turned air down, went to eat dinner. Back in the room, very warm. The hallway was actually cold so i propped open the door. Called front desk, clerk came up put his hand over air, said it was blowing cool air. Thermistat was set at 65 for quite awhile, his remark was "it's no 65 but, it's no 80.. not nice not friendly, no other rooms. Went outside, looked like the walkways hadn't been pressure washed for years. Attacked by flies, trash cans over flowing. The next morning, desk clerk won't look up or acknowledge you..too busy watching videos. Entering the breakfast area we were offered a fly swatter! Need i say more.

Comfortable but could not get over the smell. The a/c had a sour smell coming from it. Breakfast was great. Location was convenient. Pets are welcome, so that might have had something to do with the odor.
Room was clean and breakfast was fair (very limited choices). The male desk clerk was not friendly at check-in. I went back later to ask a question and found him on the phone. I waited but he never got off the phone or acknowledged my presence. We were attracted to Shamrock because of the warm welcome that we received at the “Do Drop In” on our way out West following Route 66. On our return trip, we decided to stay in Shamrock. Shamrock is a great little town BUT NEVER TRY TO VISIT IT ON A SUNDAY!!! EVERYTHING IS CLOSED!!! YES, EVERYTHING! Our only choices for food were: McDonalds, Subway or Taco Bell. Vern's Steakhouse was suppose to be open but wasn't. We asked a convenience store... and was told their was a steakhouse down the road about 25 miles. I tried calling it, got no answer so I assume that they were closed too!
A pet-friendly hotel (although on the high end of fees at $16) just off the highway with an iconic Route-66 gas station just down the street. Staff is extra friendly and the hotel is clean and comfortable. A LOT of pets. Breakfast offered a typical selection of eggs/meat, breads & muffins, waffles, etc. BUSY between 7-8am. Downside of a small town (pop 1910), arrived on High School graduation night - the entire town was closed, including most restaurants... however, found a great little steak house a couple miles up the road
We were passing through on our way home from vacation. Overall we were very pleased with our stay. Breakfast was great! I would recommend staying here. Great value and our room was very clean! Elevator availabe to those who have a hard time with stairs.
Caring staff, clean property, quick check-in/out, good parking. Unexpected amenities in out of the way location. Located conveniently right off the exit of I-40. The breakfast I think is listed as continental, but goes far beyond. We stayed many times, eggs, hot waffle Texas cooked by the individual, sausage, bacon, sometimes omelettes, and More!
I found this to be a very comfortable hotel with excellent room, pool, and spa. They also offered breakfast, but we left too early in the morning to take advantage of it. They appear to be pet friendly as several guests had small dogs. It was just what we needed after multiple days of motorcycle riding.
Our stay at this best Western was excellent the rooms were clean the staff was nice the breakfast was good to ground her cleaned. We we travel from buoy Maryland to Albuquerque New Mexico or Billings Montana every year so I'm sure we will be stopping at the best Western again it is on our route going out and coming home
The room was very nice, and clean with the air conditioner already cooling the room on arrival. All of the staff that I visited with were very nice. The check in and check out was fast and easy. My stay was overall a great experience.
Stopped in at the Best Western Plus Shamrock Inn and Suited on our drive to Phoenix. Front desk clerk seemed rather disinterested in our arrival but the room was clean and beds were good. Breakfast was good in the morning so it wasn't a long stop.
Very nice!! The staff was friendly. The room was very nice, bed comfortable everything was clean. The breakfast had a nice variety of things to choose from.Easy access off I-40. We came in late and left right after breakfast but were able to recharge for another long day. I would definitely stay here again and hopefully be able to stay longer.
This best western plus did not disappoint us, as they rarely do not. Front staff lady was absolutely fantastic We asked for recommendations on a good steak house as we saw several advertised.. She recommended one and, to our delight, it was fantastic. Our room was across from the breakfast room in the lobby, but we never heard any noise whatsoever. Room was very clean, king bed was comfortable sleeping,. Plenty of hot water for 2 ppl and pressure was great..Breakfast was a hot breakfast and all was good there also. We would stay here again!!!! Hotel was pet friendly, as we saw several dogs, but never heard them at night.. Parking is great also.. hot tub and inside pool , Wifi was great..
Great stay in a nice hotel that accepts dogs....everything was very nice. We had no issues and the staff was very nice. Bed very comfortable. Breakfast was good, and all in all, well worth the money and a good stop in Shamrock, TX.
Clean, comfortable and a good place to have your doggy....no complaints. Short and sweet stay. Beds were very nice....Front deck help very nice, breakfast fine. A little bit of green space for the doggy and close to Big Verns Steakhouse for a great dinner!
I am a snowbird and I make several trips from the midwest to Scottsdale, Arizona each year - in 2 different cars - going east and going west before and after winter. A large part of my journey is spent on Interstate 40 - from Arizona To Oklahoma. I know every mile, every town and just about every hotel along the path. Shamrock, Texas was a new stop for me. I usually stay in Amarillo when I'm driving back to the midwest, but driving on to Shamrock added about 90 miles and made the next day's ride a little shorter. I am a fan of Best Western Hotels - especially the ones that qualify for the PLUS designation. The Shamrock Inn and Suites met the standards very well. My room was a King Suite and I had a refrigerator and a microwave. There was a big flat screen TV, but part of enjoying this journey is the ability to keep the TV off ... The WiFi was fast - but there was a little hiccup at one point in the evening -- I called the desk and the WiFi was back on in a few minutes. The shower had lots of hot water and high pressure. The bed was comfortable - with lots of pillows. The heating and AC worked and it was quiet. A great feature of the Best Western chain is the included full breakfast. We're not talking about a stale Danish and some coffee here - this is bowls of cereal, scrambled eggs, bacon and/or sausage - and a do it yourself waffle. There is also fresh fruit and a refrigerator filled with yogurts. The Shamrock breakfast area was clean and attended by a wonderful person. It was great! I enjoyed my stay and I'll be back ...
Staff was extremely helpful and courteous. Room was extra clean and comfortable. Breakfast was an unexpected pleasure, all foods that we tried were excellent including the omelets(which was the surprise)
Up to all the Best Western standards. Clean room, comfy bed, great breakfast. Dog friendly with some green space which is important to us. This will be our annual stopover coming home from Arizona after the winter.
Our room was right next to the lobby and I was concerned that it might be too noisy, but the room was great. It was quiet and comfortable. We stayed overnight and got an early start in the morning. The hotel was right off the freeway and next to a gas station. I would recommend this hotel for a quick overnight stay.
This hotel should not Bea Best Western PLUS much less a Best Western . Upon checking into our room we discovered mold in the refrigerator , the control knob broken and could not get it to turn on so we moved to another room however we waned a king and got 2 double beds so they moved us again to a room with a king bed. The refrigerator had old food in it but it worked, there was still trash in the baskets, the shower head was falling off the wall, mold in shower, bathroom wall crumbling, paint spray on bathroom door, mold on tile floor, old linens. This was worse than a motel 6. The pool has been closed for months because of needed repairs and this is an indoor pool. They have no idea if they can fix it.
Michael H, Manager at Best Western Plus Shamrock Inn & Suites, responded to this review
I would like to apologize for any inconvenience. The fridge was checked and seemed to be working fine. The pool was closed and drained so it could be repainted. Its easier to do in the winter rather than spring and summer. I addressed the food and trash that was left in the room with housekeeping. That is unacceptable. I do hope that if you do come back through Shamrock you give us another chance.
We arrived to a less than enthusiastic young man at the check in who was unable to find our points in his system for whatever reason. Our room was just off the lobby which I thought might be noisy was it was very quiet. Breakfast was good and clean as were our rooms. Didn't check out the pool as this was just a quick stop on our journey. Shamrock is a small town so we were just looking for a spot to rest our heads for the night. This was certainly fine for what we needed.
My mother and I stayed at this hotel for one night. We were greeted by a friendly and helpful receptionist. We were checked in quickly and the receptionist accepted our request for us to switch rooms. We had a big bathroom and comfortable beds. The TV worked great. The fitness room has cardio machines, however, we could not get the treadmill to work. The breakfast was great. Good assortment of cereal, furor, pastries, eggs and sausage. We felt very comfortable and safe at this hotel.
Room was okay. Bed not great or the pillows. Linens felt like they had been hung out on the clothesline. Breakfast was undercooked, bacon floppy and nearly raw. Employees friendly enough. Overall not horrible, but there could be a few things to improve the experience. This is our second stay here. Not sure if we will again, despite the convenience.
Likely, the best place to stay in Shamrock, TX. The hotel was in the process of being updated to the new BW standards, but that did not distract from the overall quality of our stay. Conveniently located off of I-40, friendly hotel staff, and pleasant accommodations, made for a perfect stay.
Staff is attentive to detail, very clean rooms (stayed many times at this same hotel now), and breakfast is awesome, hot and way beyond continental standards. Even though the hotel is right off I-40, it's very quiet and the beds help me get better sleep than at home.
It was the best hotel and room we have ever stayed at. The young lady was very helpful and when I told her that I had a Best Western card but couldn't find it, she looked it up and up graded our room.
Comfortable beds were a plus. This hotel has improved since our last visit 3+ years back. Breakfast at this BW did not have the variety of others, but it was okay. No half-and-half for the coffee--now, that one is a deal-breaker for one of us; since there was butter for the toast, why not something better than Cremora?
For the services offered, this wasn't a Plus for Best Western. The toilet was continually running, I adjusted the flapper myself. The bathroom was filthy, Dirty in the corners and when I had to wipe up a spill and the washcloth came up black. The smoke detector was missing from the wall. The last thing I want to do is maintenance when I've been driving all day.
Very clean room with comfortable beds and pillows. Friendly and helpful staff. Also, a great little restaurant within walking distance that has the best hamburgers and icecream anywhere. Hotel breakfast was wonderful. Highly recommend.
Great holiday on Route 66 & location is terrific just off the Mother Road & within walking distance of the wonderful Big Vern's Steak Place. Recommend this hotel... very friendly staff. Good pool & spa.
I must say being a hotel when is is raining, lighting and thunder is a different experience I am very happy the power never went out, the staff is very comforting and helpful too! I would for sure stay at this hotel in my near future. Finding out that a Disney movie was inspired by a historic site there made it all that much better.
We took a trip out west through Oklahoma Kansas Colorado New Mexico. We stopped at various sites and so many new things. Pikes Peak was probably the most impressive. I enjoyed my stay at the Best Western and would stay there again.
This hotel is well taken care of and provides a quiet time for needed rest while traveling, Once inside your room it's like the comfort of home. We are very pleased with the employees that we come in contact with and amazed as to how quick they are to want to take care of your needs.. This hotel offers a good breakfast with a large variety of foods, hot and cold.
It's a BW plus so everything was very nice. I especially enjoy their mattresses and pillows. Spacious rooms, granite surfaces, great shower heads and nice staff. There is a pool and sauna and a good hot breakfast.
There were a number of us on our MVPA Route 66 Convoy that spent the night here. Check in was smooth as was check out. Room was clean, beds comfortable. Breakfast was good. It is a good value! Thanks again, Best Western.
Traveling thru the panhandle on the way to Sante Fe & stopped for the night.The 2 closed down buildings next door have no curb appeal. BUT, This place was great. Friendly staff, great pet friendly room, & great breakfast. I took my dogs out for a walk at 3 A.M, & the desk person had treats for our dogs when we returned. Right on the highway, but no highway noise.
This was one of the nicest places that we stayed. The employees were so nice, helpful and friendly. The room was marvelous. The property was so beautiful. The breakfast was very good. It couldn't have been any better. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this place to stay.
Staff very helpful , the room clean shampoo lotion coffee , plenty of towels , nice TV , nice breakfast selection, GOOD coffee . Loved the pool lounged in the hot tub . Felt great! We would stay there again .
I'm a person that love to travel. But unfortunately, not all the time I have money to do so. Travel is a way to take my stress away. If discount I can always save up and we'll be able to travel more often.
Bad weather forced an unexpected stop in Shamrock, but the hotel was a pleasant surprise The staff was efficient and friendly. The room was large and comfortable. The free breakfast was good and the food items were replenished as needed. This was near the end of an eleven day road trip and the free breakfast was the best we enjoyed on our trip. Good thing, there are no nearby restaurants.
We were weary travelers, having come from Holbrook, AZ, on our way home. Finally stopped after looking for a room, and finding none. I asked for a room, David said yes they had king/queen, but since I was a Rewards member, he could upgrade us to the Executive Suite. So up we went to a wonderful, comfortable room. We had a good nights sleep, and went on our way early the next morning. I love Best Western Hotels! They are always clean, the staff is always friendly, and it's a wonderful place to stay. If you're in Shamrock, TX, stop in!
The hotel is well located just off I-40, close to a gas station and convenience store. The room was clean and comfortable, almost across the laundry room, which was a welcome thing during a cross-country car trip. Though they'd ran out of laundry supplies for purchase at the front desk, a short walk to the convenience store solved that. Breakfast was included with our room, with a good selection of fruits, cereals, bagels, pastries and waffles.
one night stay, very easy on and off interstate during road trip, excellent friendly staff and breakfast, room spacious handicapped suite had roll in shower and room for my scooter around bed and sofa area, rated sleep quality average because we found the pillows thick and hard but we did not ask the staff if they had any others
Very clean the staff was very nice and helpful come through again I will stop here for good night sleep they have a great selction for breakfast the pool area was clean and they a great workout room you feel like you are home in this motel outside is so pretty grocery store right around the Conner and fast food right across the street
We lost a garmet bag that flew out of our luggage rack we left open. We were an hour away when we realized it happened. We called the hotel and they sent a staff person to look for it and it was found on the road! It saved our trip. Very grateful for the helpful service.
Hotel looks good from the outside. Front desk help was nothing special. Room was oversized which was nice but there was an odor and dampness to the room. I think the AC was leaking and it couldn't keep up with the size of the room.
Stayed one night. Desk clerk was very nice and helpful. Did not eat b'fast. Coffee was not good. Room was good. No problems. Nothing special. Would probably stay again if under the same need for a hotel at the same time of day and location during my travel.
We spent only one night at this hotel while traveling to central Oklahoma and it was a very pleasant stay. Easy access to the hotel, everything we saw was very clean and well maintained, our room was clean and comfortable, the bed was comfortable, the free wifi was very good and the breakfast was good. It was also a very good value. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.
After traveling cross country, this hotel gave us the best accommodations for the least amount of money. Large king bed, pool, breakfast, free internet, and quiet. Not a night spot for the partier, but perfect for the traveler (250 ft off the interstate). Oh, did I mention that it was quiet? Our room opened to the lobby and not a sound!
The Best Western in Shamrock was a little disappointing. Front desk always tells what's beyond and smile goes a long way. Breakfast and staff were great as was checkout. Inside pool was past its "use by date" As an engineer I see a fire hazard in the boiler room adjacent to the pool where the was open. Very poor maintenance.
Stopped to get some rest. Arrived at 4 am. Asked if I could check out at noon instead of 11. They said yes(with an unhappy look). They were knocking on my door at 9 am. Long story short paid $120 for about 4 hr of sleep.
, Manager at Best Western Plus Shamrock Inn & Suites, responded to this review
I do apologize for the interruption. I will talk with my desk staff about late checkouts and my housekeeping staff about knocking before 11 am.
We only stayed in Shamrock because we needed a place to stop for the night. The BW had rooms available at a reasonable rate. The hotel is a little rough around the edges, but has been updated. The couch in our room was torn and had holes in it, but the room was clean and comfortable. The beds and bedding were comfortable with plenty of pillows. We had no problems using the wifi in our room. The pool needs some TLC. The breakfast was included and is set up in a nice new eating area that included all the usual fare that suits our family for a quick breakfast before we hit the road.
Excellent service. this was 2nd night staying at BW and service of desk clerk was excellent. Would stay at BW again. Hotel was clean and well maintained. Close to restaurant. Would highly recommend this hotel
This place had everything we were looking for! Indoor pool, fitness center, and nice rooms. I only wish I had more time to enjoy all the amenities. There was even a grocery store within walking distance of the hotel with great deals on fresh fruit. I would definitely stay here again!
We stayed at this motel with a pet and were very pleased with the room and facilities. The breakfast was especially good. Being a pet friendly facility, there was a nice safe place to walk our dog and the room worked well for pets.
Rooms recently refurbished. Clean, neat and tidy rooms with top amenities. Free breakfast and wifi. Reception team very helpful and friendly. Would recommend to everyone. Route 66 friendly and close to the town and freeway.
Spent the one night here while travelling Route 66 and the rooms were clean and and bathroom had not long been renovated. Breakfast room clean and we'll set out with a good choice of foods. Reception staff friendly and welcoming would stay here again.
We stayed here last night and this was our (5) time to stay here! We have our dog and the hotel charges $10.00 extra for him! This is a fair price for a pet! The hotel room is large and clean and the staff is always friendly and nice. Breakfast is well done with fruit and HOT COFFEE....!! Will always stay here when traveling thru Texas!
We have stayed here several times and have enjoyed our stay. The people are friendly and we are made to feel welcome. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. There is a nice family restaurant across the parking lot with reasonable prices. We will stay here again if we come by this way next year.
This is a very nice hotel off the interstate and near a small town on Route 66. The hotel is clean both inside and out. The rooms are large. The staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast was plentiful. We would stay here again
I made a habit of staying at Comfort Inns for the past 10 years,then I got sick of their "GO Nowhere!" rewards program and stayed at a Best Western that I booked online.What a nice hotel!Beautiful comfortable room with an easy chair and ottoman to relax in after the hard road. What a pleasure! Great bed ,great pool and Hot tub, and great breakfast. My only complaint was ruff towels-get fabric softener! Definitely consider this Hotel.I'll be back!
Was visiting Shamrock for a sports event. Considered some of the quaint motor lodges on the old Route 66 in town, but chose the Best Western hoping for a better night's sleep. The room was very comfortable and extremely quiet given the location along I-40. The complimentary breakfast bar was standard Best Western fare with the exception of warm flour tortillas which were a very nice (and tasty) surprise. Shamrock is an interesting Route 66 town worth stopping to take a look, even if you don't stay the night. I'll be back and will stay here again.
Just off of I 40 and a nice stop after nine hours of driving. Shamrock is more an intersection of highways than an actual place so not much to do once you get there. Breakfast was well appointed and the wifi was quick. Our view was a residential neighbour's back yard.
This was my second stay ever at a Best Western--my experience in Blackwell, OK was so good I decided to give another one a try. This one was a little more pricey, and I'm not sure why--but still, just under 3 figures. Well worth it, again. Large room, large TV with plenty of channels, accommodating staff who happily placed me in an easy access room and suggested eateries...very happy with my two BW experiences, and I do plan to stay in them again (assuming the keep the prices under 3 figures...I don't care if it's $99...which is double what I've paid until this past trip, ever...it's worth it to pay more and have peace, quiet, and comfort.
Room was clean, but near the lobby, so a little noisy. Breakfast was OK. Parking was limited. We had to park our truck & trailer on the street. The pool was closed, but charge for the room was not discounted.
This is a pleasant Best Western in a convenient place to stop along I 40 as we headed east. It was clean comfortable, but the mattress could have used updating. I am not sure why it is a Best Western Plus as it seemed just like a lot of the other inns we have stayed at.
The room was perfect. Large, comfy and very clean. Great bed, quiet surroundings we had a good nights sleep. Breakfast was good with lots of selections. Staff were polite and helpful. there was an elevator and baggage carts available for ease in settling in.
I called ahead while I was on the road and they made it very easy to request a pet room. My room was very well set up and my pet was very happy with the clean room to stay in. Was able to make this reservation on the road and no hassle with just letting them know about the time I would be there and no card to hold room!
We are celebrating our 30th anniversary by traveling to Sedona and Grand Canyon Area. We picked this hotel from all those in Shamrock because of amenities. The room was clean and slept well. However, the cost considering the pool and hot tub area were closed was too much. In the morning, the guest next to us had a dog barking like crazy. Really shouldn't book folks that close when hotel wasn't full. Felt terrible the lady trying to keep up on the food for breakfast. She tried so hard . The seating area was very cramped for the 6 tables. The dryer was also broken in the coin op room.
We were travelling Route 66 and decided to stop here for the night and they had a vacancy. The room was large and clean and the staff were amiable and helpful. Complimentary breakfast in the morning was the usual BW fayre and cannot be complained about. We did have a problem with flies in the room and asked at reception for some fly/bug spray, but were just told "we don't have any".
One of my favorite Best Western Pus hotels during this trip. The rooms were very comfortable, breakfast was good with a very clean area. All of the staff were professional and polite. At check in, the desk clerk Paige recommended the restaurant Mesquite Canyon Steak House located north of the hotel less than a mile. Great place to eat, I highly recommend it. They serve steak, chicken, and a variety of other foods. Like being at home atmosphere.
We stayed here in late September 2016. We did not make a reservation but was able to get a room. The location is right off the highway and easy to get to and get back on the highway. The room was an average room but the hotel staff were very nice. They recommended several places to eat dinner and gave us directions to a few local places. The breakfast was fresh and the morning staff were friendly and helpful. We would stay here again.
One think can be said for doing surveys they always want one but what do they offer after doing so many. What does it do for the Hotel and or the Customer? One The same questions appear on everyone and most of them want ask the right questions, how was the shower, the toilet, the carpet, the TV/Remote, the Ice Machine, ETC. Was the pool useable, warm ETC.
Stayed here in later September, 2016 while I was touring East-bound, Rt. 66. It has been years since I stayed at a Best Western; some good, some not very good. Since I was tired and it was almost dark, this was a good time to find a place. I did not make a reservation, but stopped in and asked to see a room (which I almost never do, but I had a poor experience at a hotel on Rt 66 in AZ). I was pleasantly surprised. I had previously stayed at two chain hotels the prior 2 nights and they were great. So, this property was just off the interstate, everything worked ok in the room; it was clean and up-to-date. Good amenities, check-in was good, quiet, comfortable room. Breakfast was ok and enough to get one back on the road. Shamrock was a delightful town the next day with good Rt. 66 sights and things to see. Great restored gas station almost next door which had a very good gift-shop and friendly folks running it. I ate about 9:30PM at the restaurant next door which was marginal at best and I was under the impression that it was about the only place in town that was open; my traveling companion is a vegetarian so that was a challenge for him. I would recommend this property and would stay there again.
My father, sister and 4 month old nephew stayed in a suite while passing through. It was so nice. We had plenty of room to set up the pack and play. The hot breakfast was good! (Biscuits, gravy, omelettes, bacon, sausage etc.) Would definitely stay here again!
While this may not sound like an exuberant endorsement, to say "I'd stay there again," really is. The room was comfortable, although the air conditioning unit was loud. The room had a refrigerator and microwave and the tv got lots of channels. The shower was really nice and the bathroom was big. The breakfast had the usual selection and was fine.
Best Western Plus hotels are always nice. All have free, yummy breakfasts as well. The only reason I didn't give this particular hotel 5 stars is because we asked for a wake-up call and we didn't get it. That's a problem when you are driving cross country and have a tight schedule.
, Assistant General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Shamrock Inn & Suites, responded to this review
I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. I do apologize that you did not get your wake up call and the issue was addressed and we hope to see you the next time you come through Shamrock. Samantha Bohlar, Assistant General Manager.
Stayed one night during a cross country trip. Nice place. Had a large room with 2 queen beds and they were okay. Slept pretty good. Had a/c set on 68 but still got pretty warm. Just can't figure those things out. One place you'll freeze at 68 and the next place you'll burn up at 68. Right off the interstate which makes it easy to find. Nice breakfast of eggs, sausage and biscuits with a few bagels and cereal. Coffee was really good.
We were traveling thru Texas and wanted a place to stay for one night. The hotel was nice and while restaurants in town were limited, there was a family style place next to the hotel. The town offered some unusual tourist sites that were free and required a small amount of time to see: a piece of the Blarney Stone and a former gas station that was HWY66 related and was used in the CARS movie. I like small time required sites since they allow us to see something different and not take up much of our travel time.
We were pleasantly surprised with the friendly service and very good accommodations. I've never been in a room just off the lobby before, but it was kinda neat. Coffee and breakfast was right outside our door. Bed was very comfortable, room was quiet, no complaints.
Another road-trip last-minute reservation...the room was large, the staff was friendly, and the breakfast was decent. Price was also comparable to other hotels that had somewhat less access and fewer room choices (no king beds, etc.). Staff was very helpful with several items. Room was clean, well stocked, and beds were comfortable. Bathroom was also clean and adequately sized. Room was also very quiet even though it is very close to I-40. Would stay here again.
Thank you for your friendly, kind and helpful employees. The atmosphere and rooms were very clean and comfortable When an employee was asked a question they immediately responded very politely. We were very pleased with our stay at Best Western Plus in Shamrock. The information in the directory was very helpful and many choices were given on things to do and see. See you on the return visit.
Very accommodating staff, comfortable bed and nice shower. The bed and shower are the "meat and potatoes" of a hotel and this one is A+++. The breakfast was hot and ready and the staff was friendly and helpful. We recommend this hotel and would stay here again.
We were attending my father's funeral and were NOT LOUD at all when the desk clerk told us to "use our library voices". We were making plans with the preacher. She was on her cell phone not the hotel phone. We will never stay there again.
So is the wifi, but it's so slow you're better off without it. It does have an indoor pool and there's a diner right across the street. There's also a small (4 pieces of equipment) fitness room. The rooms were actually quiet and reasonably clean. The staff wasn't super customer-friendly, but they apparently aren't used to large parties. Overall, it was OK and probably the best place to stay in Shamrock.
Stayed at the Best Western Plus in Shamrock, TX on our way home from a motorcycle trip to Santa Monica. Very nice place to stay - easily accessible from highway, clean and comfortable, accommodating staff, good amenities and great breakfast/breakfast service. Would stay there again if in the area. Negative points - limited restaurant options within walking distance from hotel; hi speed internet was very problematic.
Good location, friendly staff, quiet room, nice indoor pool and hot tub. At $98 for the standard room, I thought it was a bit high. Although this appears to be the nicest hotel in Shamrock. The room was nice and clean and the bed was comfortable. The included breakfast is typical of hotels serving complementary breakfasts. Overall, I guess I would stay here again.
We stayed at this hotel both times on our round trip from Arizona to St Louis and back. Both times we found it to be clean. The free breakfast was decent and the staff was friendly. We just needed a clean place to lay our heads before continuing our road trip and we found it here.
This hotel is pet friendly but be aware to ask if your room is one of those said pet rooms. We also then ran into a room that didn't have working air conditioning. Thought the bright side after driving from Santa Fe, NM would be having a chance to be on my iPad and enjoying some stuff there, but the wifi sucks! Doesn't work! Have had this issue way too often at BW.
We are traveling across county with two small dogs, and were happy to find this pet-friendly hotel. The room was very comfortable, with a king bed, sofa in front of the TV, and refrigerator. There is plenty of open space outside for dog-walking, and a grocery store within easy walking distance was an added convenience. Breakfast had many options. We took the yogurt & fruit, and the dogs got some bacon & eggs. Nice hot tub with strong jets, and the indoor pool was larger than most indoor hotel pools. Very friendly and caring staff. We will be back.
Excellent property in the process of new dressing-up. First Best Western, however, with no microwave and we have stayed in many. We had the only single bad experience we have ever had at the BW Plus Mark in Weatherford, OK by a very rude elderly lady wearing a GENERAL MANAGER badge in a small hotel in a very small town in Oklahoma...seems to love to assert her authority...do not recommend that anyone stay there.
After driving with my elderly handicapped mother for 10 hours and having a mixup at a different nearby hotel who ended up having no rooms, we were sent here by a third party booking. I was not feeling it to begin with so to be fair, if it wasn't up to other reviews I'd nit pick. Just being honest. Although DESK CLERK was very sweet and tried her best- CHECK-IN was gruelingly slow because she made a glitch and couldn't correct it. After abt 15 mins she finally said she'd let the manager deal with it in the morning. The ROOM: clean, but walls cracking in bath, smelled like a wet dog, and I never got nose blind to the smell- and front desk had no air freshener. BED: was a cheat; not as comfortable as they hoped, cutting the corners they did, and the PILLOWS are all fat spongy type. Faking real comfort hoping no one notices. I may have gotten 3 hours of restless sleep all night, off and on. BREAKFAST: It was similar to gas station food. One bite of the eggs and I felt ill with the slimy fake cheese. STAFF: Passed several maids and breakfast person and not one was friendly enough to say good morning. This is specifically why've did not choose this hotel to begin with, I'm always willing to pay an extra $10-15 for better beds, rooms, service. I paid MORE or as much for this hotel (not my 1st choice) as I did for the much nicer, prime location, elaborate breakfast, superb bedding hotels we stayed at!! See pics for proof (San Diego Bay front embassy suites was LESS!! Wyndham Hilton Riverfront was LESS! Boutique hotel in Penn was LESS! All 3+ hotels!!) I wouldn't be this upset had I paid half what I did for this side of the road 2 star motel.
This is always our first stop headed out west from Memphis and it never disappoints. Rooms are spacious, staff is friendly, pool and hot tub are large, continental breakfast is just that. Across the street from a neat local yocal bar and a good family restaurant.
Overall, a VERY nice place. The room was comfortable, clean and fresh. The hotel was well maintained. Used the pool and that was well maintained. Breakfast was complete and tasty. Very nicely located just off the freeway and in the proximity of several restaurants.
Wasn't expecting much from such a small town but really a quality hotel. Nice amenities and clean. Comfortable bed and good breakfast in morning with really helpful staff. Asked for handicap accommodations and room close to parking for easy access and was able to get it. Would stay again when passing through.
Don't stay here if you want a clean room and the room of choice that you made when you made your reservation! We were forced to take a more expensive room even though we made reservations ahead of time. This hotel was so dirty as were the folks at the front desk! We were not helped at all. It was take this room or continue down the road! They were not friendly nor busy whenever we came by them. If the hotel was so full our reserved room was given away there should have been more cars in the parking lot! We won't be staying at Best Western's again and will not recommend them to anyone who asks about our trip.
Just off I-40, easy on and off, this hotel is like an oasis in a rather dry environment. They had lovely flowers starting to bloom (it was spring) and really pretty exterior that was inviting. Room was clean, good beds, great shower and spacious but poorly planned as the computer chair blocked the path through the room. Good breakfast (they had sausage and BACON) plus the ladies taking care of it were really clean plus friendly. Will stay there again.
We were pleasantly surprised by the accommodations. When we left, we signed up for their member benefits and stayed at two more Best Western hotels on our way home. We had two cats that traveled with us and the cost for them was very reasonable. Room was comparable to other higher priced hotels.
There is a market located just behind this Best Western, convenient for snacks etc. Gas station across the street, easy fill up, all located on Hwy 40 easy access. Good breakfast, workout room and quiet at night
East bound on I-40 I saw a sign for the Best Western in Shamrock, TX at approximately exit 80. The motel was at exit 163. About every 10 miles as it was getting closer & closer to midnight I past a sign for the motel. By the time I got there I was dead tired, almost too tired to relax or sleep. After a hot bath I laid down only to wake up to the alarm going off. Can't tell you about the rest of the motel.
need signs to find elevator on the floors when at staying in upper floor rooms. exterior signs should be out in the open and not behind shrubs or trees. would be nice to have the room numbers larger and in hallways showing which way to the different rooms.
I want to give a quick update...we stayed here last here on our way back to Wisconsin. This year we stayed on our way out to Arizona. Again, very clean, comfortable beds(which we needed after driving 16 hours)! Very consistent, the breakfast was good and hot being the normal buffet style. I suggest a reservation, it seems to fill up. Also, pet friendly with a very nominal fee of $10. We've found fees up to $50. My only comment is friendly welcome when checking in.....not friendly!
We have stayed here before and it is always nice and clean.It has comfortable beds and it is very clean.It is quite and a friendly staff.The price is good with AARP. It has a nice pool and a very nice breakfast area.We will stay here again for sure.
Stayed here on road trip from MI to AZ. I'd rate this a 5 but the pool was not working and I needed it for medical reasons. They did not disclose this when I called ahead for room and they did not discount the price which was high to begin with. Rooms were clean, quiet, comfortable and the breakfast was great. Restaurant selections were limited for dinner. We ate at the Mesquite Canyon and it was good.
This hotel is conveniently located close to the highway. The rooms were very quiet and nicely decorated. We usually go to the deli at a grocery store for dinner and there is one right next door. The gas station is across the street. There is a nice pool and hot tub. The jets on the hot tub were excellent. The breakfast is your typical hotel breakfast but very adequate for our needs.
Our stay at this hotel was enjoyable. We did not have reservations, so we were glad that they had a room. The hotel was very clean and the staff was really nice and polite. the only draw back was the elevator had just gone out. But I'm sure they had it fixed.
--- the hot breakfast was exceptional --- the room and hallway was very clean --- the bed was quite comfortable --- however, very few restaurant choices --- rural small town environment --- easy off-and-on exit from the interstate
The entire staff was super friendly. We stayed there with our two small dogs. There were many other pet owners in our section of the hotel. Our room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. They offer a continental breakfast with eggs and bacon and sausage etc. which was quite delicious and fresh. Very nice place to stay. I have to stay that the kindness of the staff really set them over and above for us.
Perfect stop for a cross-country road trip. We simply needed a place to sleep on a long stretch between Nashville, TN and Santa Fe, NM. This place popped up right after driving into Texas. Clean, comfortable, convenient.
The hotel was very clean and comfortable The staff were friendly and professional. Enjoyed a good hearty breakfast in the morning with a great cup of coffee. Breakfast staff were very friendly and helpful.
I am a loyal Best Western Rewards Member. I only stop when a BW is near a freeway, and this one is right off the exit on Interstate 40. This one was a BW+. Great location, nice, clean place to stay for you and/or your family. Nice indoor pool, with hot tub. Average area for dining selection, but felt safe throughout my stay.
Traveling West on interstate 40 entering Texas, the Best Western Plus at Shamrock, Texas is a great place to stay. Shamrock is an interesting place to visit and the BW Plus is a very good rest stop. I have stopped here many times and each time it just seems to get better.
We stopped for the night at the Best Western in Shamrock, TX on our way to the Grand Canyon. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the hotel for such a relatively small town. There were several good restaurants close by also.
I called the motel while driving from Moab Utah to Shawnee, OK. David answered and said they had vacancies so when we arrived 30 minutes later, David greeted us. The motel lobby was very nice. David offered to let us see a room before we checked in, but based on the lobby we left comfortable checking is. David was very friendly and gave us a recommendation for dinner. The room was nicely furnished, clean, quiet and comfortable. The bed was comfortable and we had a good nights rest.
this is a clean place to stay but that is all you get . no coffee in the pm or the early am. I f you leave early you get nothing, to eat or drink.. not even a muffin or coffee. the pool was closed so all we got for our very high rate was a clean bed and a grumpy clerk in the morning..
I was a little disappointed with the "Plus" rating of this hotel, as it is in the process of renovation. The exterior is in rough shape, with cracked walls, raw concrete patches, broken metal railings and the pool closed for cleaning and repair. Inside was OK, but my room and bath needed more attention to dusting. The bath was clean, but had a towel rack that was beginning to sag and was showing signs of rust and tile molding on the floor near the tub had been sloppily repaired. The King bed was comfortable and the room had all the usual amenities, but the A/C didn't work properly and I had to set it at 68 to keep it on. The room door squeaked loudly when opened and closed. My 3rd floor room was very quiet, even located next to the elevator. As others have said, I didn't find the staff overly welcoming. Breakfast options included bacon or sausage, pre-made "Omelets", pastries, fresh fruit, and waffles. My rating was due to the advertised level of the hotel not meeting my overnight experience.
The hotel did not have any regular rooms; although a suite was available. It was a nice stay; although the internet did not work well there and the hotel's internet was having problems as well. The pool was getting painted or cleaned.
