Decently nice hotel that was clean and had free breakfast, parking and internet. Breakfast was decent but they had a wide selection of things to eat and the cinnamon rolls were great. Good front desk service and staff was accommodating and nice. We have stayed here several times before and sheets were a little rough this time but still a... More

We were drop ins and got a twin room promptly, with free wi-fi. The room was pleasant and well appointed and all fairly standard. The hotel is well located on the I 35. Staff were helpful and the breakfast was ok. Not much more to say really. We did stay in the Howard Johnsons down the road on our way... More

Careful of the directions, as it is easily confused with similar property further south. Pleasant standard-issue hotel, clean and light, easy place to stay and meet local family. We had 2 rooms for the weekend, no problem, except a rather sassy morning manager who questioned my wife's credentials when she arrived separately. Great breakfast. A surprisingly nice touch: we checked... More

There were no surprises here, which is a good thing. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My room was comfortable with a good work area and a bed that was neither too firm nor too soft. A fridge and microwave oven were nice touches. I especially liked the pancake machine at breakfast. If you stay here, be sure to... More

Super fast Internet.. Finally a hotel that understand what business travelers need. Had a board room they let me use during the day for meetings rather than sitting in the lobby.. The staff was friendly directed me to local restaurants and entertainment. The hotel was close to everything and just minutes from 6th street right up the I35.. 7 minutes... More

I recently booked a room for this hotel on the IHG website and found the exact room for the exact dates on Expedia for $29 per night less. I booked both rooms thinking that IHG would honor their "+Best Price Guarantee". Oh NO! Their response was that because the room didn't show "available" when they checked Expedia, that they did...
