I apologize for the cleanliness of our hotel during the rodeo, we do have have quite a bit of tracked in mud that makes it more difficult for our housekeeping to keep clean. We do plan to install all new carpet throughout our hotel this year. We have contacted mediacom regarding the "lack of" HBO in our channel line up, we are waiting to hear back from them. Wall air/heating units while a bit noisy than our home central air, are an essential part of individual personal heating/cooling needs.

It's a good hotel for a place to stay while you're working

Good value for a hotel that's in a rural area. I'm stayed at this property a couple times over the years. They keep it up nicely and it's a very nice hotel through what you might expect in the small... more

Thank you very much for responding to our survey. Recently, we have made many upgrades to our hotel including new ceramic tile floors in our bathrooms, along with granite counter tops and new mirrors. The lighting has all been replaced in our rooms and new chairs. We have also installed new drapes, upgraded the wifi, remodeled the breakfast room and front desk. We plan to install new carpet throughout the hotel. Many more renovations to come. We have kept the traditional feel of the La Grande Hacienda but will always have a clean home away from home for our guest. Thank you for choosing Best Western.
