Nice small hotel. Our room was huge. Bed was excellent. AC worked great. Small town so location not an issue. Nice breakfast. Yogurt, pastries, eggs, the infamous waffle maker. Quiet. Not much going on around. Right off the highway.
We have stayed here some 2 or 3 more times, since the "smoke incident", and have not experienced another smoke problem. This is the best motel in the immediate area, by far. Wife & I have stayed here dozens of times since it opened some 15+ years ago. Of course, things were near-perfect when the owner, "Sunny" Desai, lived onsite. Even with Sunny now living at Sugar Land, this is still the best option in Wharton or Jackson Counties. Nearby restaurant recommendations are Laura's Mexican Cafe, next exit East, Fernandez Taqutios (Breakfast) next to Laura's, Emils's Burgers behind the Liquor Store in town, off US 71, Greek Brothers Steaks & Seafood up 71 near the RR tracks, Mikeska's BBQ on US 59 E, & Pinchers Seafood to the E on US 59. Also, Prasek's Smokehouse a few miles W at Hilje has interesting offerings.
The room wasn't ready upon my arrival, around 3:30 but it wasn't long before it was ready. Overall, a nice stay. The room was nice. The bed was comfortable and the internet worked just fine. Even with the one hiccup, I would recommend this hotel. It's easy on/off access, even with the current construction on the frontage road. While it may be a bit outside of the city, it is not difficult to get to anywhere within El Campo.
Would definitely continue to return to the location if needed in the future. The staff was excellent and very willing to help as quickly as possible to ensure we had a good night's rest. I've stayed at other best western hotel's, same results .
The El Campo Executive Inn is of high quality with delightful decor serving a full breakfast bar to our satisfaction. We have stayed at this particular Best Western numerous times while visiting in El Campo.
Good motel would stay again if needed. Clean good breakfast one out of two days. Good pool and area to relax. Room was clean and quiet. Lobby was clean and inviting. Easy to get to from hwy. Staff was friendly.
I was not expected much, however this hotel was recommended by a local. Every staff member that I encountered was super friendly. Rooms have exterior entry, which I was initially concerned about, however once I checked in, I had no concerns. There is a lot of blue collar workers staying in the hotel. I am pretty sure they are living there, as most of them had BBQ grills. I noticed one complaint, however I never noticed any problems with smelling smoke in my rooms. They were all very friendly and polite. Wish I could have stayed for a burger! I did not have breakfast, however I visited the pool. It is small but very clean. I accessed the internet and it seemed to work fine. Room 221 was upstairs and had a raised ceiling with ceiling fan. The A/C worked well. Parking is complimentary and plenty of parking. The shower worked well. My only suggestion is some of the lighting (ceiling fan) have the energy saver lights and it just doesn't get as bright as the old fashioned bulbs. I turned on all of the lamps and it was fine. Plenty of palm trees on the property. Grounds very well kept.
This was a great hotel for years. Sadly, recently oilfield crews have been allowed to set-up BBQ pits too near the building, & the smoke gets all through the rooms, ruining the visit. We loved this place before the smoke. I'd guess I have stayed hers some 40 or 50 times since it opened about 15 years ago. The hotel was spotless when the owner lived there.
We stayed at this motel for an event April 22, 2017. The room was clean and the A/C cold. Hot water for the shower the following morning. Poor quality breakfast, although the staff was pleasant. The coffee was not good quality, no real half-n-half, no wheat bread and fruit was not fresh.
We enjoyed our overnight stay here. The room was spotless and comfortable. The property is either fairly new or just very well kept. Decor is modern and nice. Staff was friendly. The price was very reasonable, too.
