Reservations: Booked four rooms for NASCAR weekend well in advance. The person in our party who made the reservations was called four times to try to get him to release our reservations. Very odd! Hotel changed from a Holiday Inn to a Clarion in between the time of the reservations and the time of us arriving. Location: Conveniently located near... More

Reviews and price were what influenced us to choose this hotel. Our room was spacious, clean and quiet. The staff were very pleasant. We chose to eat at the hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our meals (the meals were huge). Breakfast offered good options and if you wanted something else you could order.

We just stayed for one night on the weekend to get away. We arrived pretty late - just before midnight. Parking lot was pretty full in the front, but it was a weekend. Hotel is just right off the Interstate so it was easy to get to. Check-in was fast and efficient. Our room was on the fourth floor and... More

This is one of, if not THE grossest places I've ever stayed. We walked into a tiny room that smelled like it had been deluged in Lysol. We wanted to put water in the refrigerator but how is that possible if the fridge's door doesn't open?? I attempted to work out at the fitness center but the smell of mold... More

Servers in the hotel restaurant; Debbie for breakfast and Jesus for dinner were amazing, overly friendly and very professional. Our room 208 had a crack in the window from top to bottom with only clear tape holding it together, glad we did not have kids with us, looked dangerous. Had one night when we went down to the hotel bar... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. The hotel is very clean and staff is very friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was nice. You could tell that some parts of it were a little old, but just little cosmetic stuff. The bed was super comfortable. My wife even said it was the most comfortable bed she's ever slept on.... More

I've stayed in really nice Holiday Inns, and that's the reason why I booked this place (it was Holiday Inn when I booked), but it looks kinda run down and dingy when you first walk in. The lobby and the hallways look like some 1.5 or 2 star hotels I've stayed in. The first room assigned wasn't clean, but the... More

We booked thru Baylor Univ. for a basketball tournament. At the time our reservations were made, it was a Holiday Inn but apparently changed ownership to a Clarion in the interim. Upon arrival in my room, there were large brown stains on the curtains which I immediately reported to the front desk. The front entrance, hall ways, stair wells were... More
