Default Places to stay in Beaumont?

I saw a couple of posts about places to stay in Beaumont. I have never stayed anywhere in Texas other than Dallas. Are there areas I should avoid (crime) when choosing a hotel/motel?

Thanks!

I normally stay at the Hampton Inn in Port Arthur. It's a good area right off the interstate and closer to the prison than staying in Beaumont (like 2 exits close) There are a few hotels around it depending on what price range you are looking for.
I have also stayed at the Hampton and Homewood Suites in Beaumont. Both right off the interstate as well but 15-20 minutes from prison depending on traffic.

Port Arthur also has a cab that will take you. But I think it's about a $15 ride to the prison I also read Beaumont has Uber now.

I suggest the Hilton Garden Inn on I-10 in Beaumont. The hotel is close to eating, entertainment. Port Arthur isn't the safest city locally. Port Arthur crime rate: 413.8, US average = 287.5 And yes there is Uber in Beaumont, as well as Taxis.

When I would go I would stay at Shepard's Inn its a Christian Ministry that house people during the weekend that go visit their love ones in prison (State or Federal) I believe they run off donations which is $30 a weekend per family and they serve dinner on Saturday nites ....I wont lie its like a dorm style but they very welcoming and I meet wonderful women that are going their the same situation as we all are. I will miss staying there!!

I have just returned from Beaumont and stayed at all 3 of the Hilton chain, Hampton Inn, Hilton Garden Inn and Homewood Suites. All very good. There is also a Residence Inn by Marriot behind them.
They are not in a residential area so the bad area problem isn't an issue. They are right on the I-10 with plenty of restaurants around and very easy and quick access to all the prisons.
