One of the best hotels I've stayed at! It has a very home like experience, the staff is great, and they have a variety of activities if you don't want to leave the hotel. Special thanks to Michelle and Nalin the manager. Thank you!!!

My wife and I spent five nights there for a Bridge tournament. This hotel has recently changed from a Holiday Inn to a Clarion. The hotel is old and showing its age--worn carpets and limited electrical outlets. The biggest annoyance was that the WiFi kept crashing. I would expect Clarion to fix that. The room was clean and the bed... More

The night clerk entered my credit card with the wrong EXP date so many times, my card would not work anymore. Had to call my son at 2am for his card. The next morning I talked to the GM about the trouble i had the previous evening and he pretty much called me a liar. I thought they should discount... More

I was stuck here by American Airlines due to a flight cancellation. This large facility was a Holiday Inn many years ago and the building appears not to of had any renovations since then. Desk and restaurant personnel did not know how to manage the airline vouchers and I was served the worst steak in all of Texas. I was... More

The hotel is a little past its prime, but was very clean and in order. The hotel staff were cheerful and very helpful. The restaurant was ample for a night and hot breakfast was served with our stay. Location was good for driving through town.

This hotel is not the elegant, expensive type of place to stay, but for the money it is good overall. We've always had good service, clean rooms and a pleasant stay! Also, it is right off I-40 makes it easy to get to and is close to fast food.

this was the last stop on our way out west and thank goodness we stopped here. For the price I don't think this place can be beat. The staff said it used to be a holiday Inn so they had this huge corridor and courtyard with a pool! good 50's style restaurant with great burgers!

This is the second time I have stayed here. The staff are nice the rooms are ok. No fridge or microwave. The do have smoking rooms, so avoid them if you don't want your room to smell like a ashtray. Overall, I would stay here again.
