This used to be a Best Western property until about 4 months ago and is now winging it on its own.

Rather, it's a conveniently sited break to take when driving from Kilgore,...

This hotel was just delightful! Pleasant staff, great room, great bed, clean, and the free breakfast the next morning was very well done. The gift shop has a collection of the famous Precious Moments figurines, making the whole experience seem like we were staying in a doll house. One absolutely cannot go wrong by choosing this hotel!

Hotel offered "special prices" for guests going to a wedding. We arrived at 3, normal check in time, expecting to get our room and change for the ceremony, which started at 4. Even though our rooms were clean and empty, according to front desk, check in wasn't until 4. We were willing to change in a family members room, who...

The Precious Moments Hotel is a nice place to stay with very friendly staff. The breakfast is good with many choices and the room and pool were clean. Easy access to the freeway or to the south end of Carthage. We have stayed before and were not disappointed, especially with the price for a 4 night stay!

Arrived at this hotel mid evening with knowing it was a nice place. The staff is kind and courteous and welcoming. Our room was on the 2nd floor and was clean and some updates. It was quiet and clean. The pillows were small and could use a few more or larger ones. The bathrooms are clean and plenty of lighting...
