I stayed at this hotel for a week so that I could start my new job in town before I moved to our rent house. The hotel is nice and conveniently located close to most everything in town. The only problem I saw is that the hotel is almost in need of a remodel. The room I was in just... More

This hotel is clean, employees are polite, but it is expensive for what you get. There is no fridge or microwave in the room. Everything is nice, but dated. We stay in Holiday Inn Expresses all the time and this one is ready for an update. Also the hotel was very expensive compared to what we stay in when we... More

We followed our high school ball team down south to watch them play so we stayed in the same hotel. Very clean hotel and very polite employees especially since we had 2 buses of high school students staying. A bit expensive $169 with all taxes (king room) for a Friday night but worth it after traveling all day. Small 4... More

We've stayed at pretty much all of the hotels in the Magnolia area, but this one is our favorite. It was during the blossom festival and the staff went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. The manager was there giving directions and information about the festival and we really appreciated his help. They have an excellent... More

My wife, daughter and mother stopped for the night. Rollaway was set up complimentary for our daughter, and the beds were very comfortable. Swimming pool was wonderful, and front desk services are superb. My mother that uses a cane, had her breakfast served to her by the breakfast attendant to her table. Highly recommend and will stay again. Thanks for... More

Excellent hotel. Our room was very clean. The breakfast was delicious. We have never stayed there before, but will be back. The service and staff were very nice and helpful. Our room was on the third floor and very quiet. Got a good nights rest.

Great location, good breakfast, exercise room only has two treadmills and nothing else which is the only down side to this hotel. The soft and firm pillow choice is great for sleeping and there's enough to choose from to eat around the hotel.
