The staff are very friendly, are concerned with your needs. The rooms could use some updating, but they are clean and nice. No complaints. Will stay here again if ever in the area. Internet is real high speed unlike others that claim to have high speed internet. There are plenty of places to eat within walking distance. Very satisfied.

We were driving from Tucson to Dallas and made a reservation here. The lobby was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The staff was genuinely happy to help make the check in process quick and painless and they were VERY friendly. The room was clean. However, I found hairs on the bathroom floor which just grosses me out! Which is why I... More

This weekend, my family and I stayed at Whitten Inn for my sister's graduation. In the past, my family has raved about this hotel, but not so this time around. We stayed in three rooms, and had all 3 pre-reserved. However, they did not pass out the correct rooms as we arrived, assumedly because they appeared to have filed all... More

The hotel is clean, well -maintained, and has friendly staff. While not fancy, it is well-appointed. It is a great value for the price. It is easy to access from I-20, and has several restaurant choices near by.

My husband and I stayed a few days at this location, because our truck broke down.From the moment we entered the staff was so pleasant and friendly. I felt welcomed and enjoyed our stay. The entire staff were professional and courteous. Unlike most places, this staff was patient and warm.

Great smiling welcome upon check-in. Room was clean and comfortable. Wish breakfast was more substantial with scrambled eggs and bacon or sausage. Otherwise, it was the typical fallback frequently seen of waffle, toast, muffin, cereal or banana as selections. Hard boiled egg also available. Location is not as convenient to local attractions, e.g. the mall, but, it is easy to... More

This was a 5 night stay and I couldn't ask for a nicer, cleaner, friendlier place to stay!! Breakfast was good. Very peaceful stay even though right off the interstate with a lot of restaurants and businesses close by. Have stayed here before and will make this my motel of choice when in this area. You won't be disappointed.....

We frequently make trans-Texas trips and have stayed here 3 times. When we checked in after 10 pm the desk clerk, without looking at notes, greeted us by our first names when we told her our last name. Nice personal touch. Though this is an older property, it is immaculately clean and well maintained. Modern bed linens, good mattresses, clean... More
