We were exhausted after driving 13 hours, and too tired to drive another 3 hours home in the dark. As many reviewers have already stated, there are not a lot of options in Brady, Texas. So we booked a room at the Best Western. This is an obviously older hotel, but I found it to be well-maintained. There is no elevator to get to the second story, so be prepared to lug suitcases and bags up if you're on the 2nd floor. I found our room to be much nicer and larger than I expected based on the apparent age of the motel. The room we stayed in has obviously been remodeled. There is a small refrigerator and microwave in the room which is very convenient. The queen beds were comfortable, with clean sheets and four nice pillows on each of them. The carpet had a few faded spots on it, but it was otherwise very clean. There were plenty of towels and wash cloths. The shower took me by surprise as there is no bathtub, just a shower and a curtain. I was afraid I'd have water all over the floor but it worked out just fine. We slept quite well, but I did have someone jiggle our door handle around 2 in the morning which is always scary. I assume a guest just went to the wrong room, because there was no one there when I looked out the peephole. My husband (who's a police officer) checked out our surroundings and saw nothing unusual. I don't know much about the area, but both motels in Brady are located near each other on a busy highway, so, again, your choices are limited.
The ladies at the front desk were super friendly and accommodating. There are several restaurants and fast food places nearby, so we were able to grab a late dinner fairly easy.
We were in a hurry to leave and get home the next morning, but the complementary breakfast looked delicious with lots of options! And the dining area was super clean and looked very comfortable. This is the first motel I've stayed at that serves breakfast so early (5:30) and keeps serving until 9:30, which is very nice.
The only drawbacks to me were the room price and a broken pool pump. I feel the price was rather expensive for the accommodations. But once more, there aren't many options, especially late in the evening. And the pool pump was broken which left an otherwise beautiful swimming pool filled with green algae. I understand Management hopes to get that fixed soon less

Thank you for completing the survey regarding your recent stay at our property.
Your business is very important to us and we value your feedback.
I apologize for the pool but our pump went out and being a small town they have to come out of Brownwood and they schedule you a week from the day you called.
Hope you stay again and we will give you a better deal on the rate cause of the inconvenience.
