All it took was a quick picture of the hotel room posted on Eva's Facebook page, and the comments began to roll in; oh the in-room Jacuzzi and that king size bed. To fully appreciate the stay in a hotel, not 5 miles from our house, and on not any particular date of importance short of it being Friday, you have to recall that we bid for and won the overnight stay at Lytle's new Best Western, several months ago at the Lytle PAWS for Summer event.
I'm sure these people mean well. The next time I want steak, I'll just go to my house. That isn't a restaurant name, it is literally, my house. I make better steak without even trying than any restaurant in the tri-city area, so far.
I have to be honest here; we expected the place to be a dump. Since it opened, the place has been booked solid and when you drive by, you can't help but notice that the majority of the vehicles parked out front belong to oil workers. Not a bad word to say against the fine men doing their best to keep the industry going south of us, wanting nothing more than a hot shower, warm bed and free breakfast before heading back out for another shift. But if you have ever dined at Bill Miller's when a dude covered in sweat, grease and grime comes in and sits at the table next to you, you can only imagine what the hotel maids have to deal with.
Bottom line, it was all good. We joked about the place probably being all nasty and the truth is, and I have stayed in some seriously first class hotels (at taxpayer expense), this Best Western was perhaps one of the cleanest places I have been.
I'm not going to pretend that Lytle is a tourist destination, but if you find yourself in need of a place to stay in the area, I'd happily recommended the Lytle Best Western Inn & Suites.
