This Econo Lodge is located in a college town (Home of the Texas Aggies) that is also home to a Presidential Library. This motel is less than Presidential! The property needs an upgrade (this is not the 1990s!) and some money spent on decent bath towels! The lobby was clean; the employees friendly (despite the anxiety they were experiencing having...

Well, where do I begin? I'll start with the good... This property is literally walking distance to campus! A solid quarterback could literally throw a pass to someone from the parking lot to the northeast corner of campus. Tucked in behind a couple of budget hotels that you have heard of, this property is right next door to an Applebee's.... More

Ironically, the link to share my feedback does not work. I am ok with an old hotel, however, I found this one dirty, stained, and uncomfortable. It would have been nice to know that this was across the street from a very loud nightclub and that renovations were occurring. As a consistent visitor to the area, I will never stay... More

This is the worst hotel. The rooms have a horrible chemical odor that literally burns your nose. The bathroom fixtures were literally falling off. The bed was uncomfortable with flimsy pillows and rough blankets. The tv was an old Zenith with a fuzzy picture. The walls were so thin we could hear full conversations of the drunks passing by. The... More

Upon arriving at the hotel, and watching what appeared to be a large Hispanic gang member walking out with a prostitute to his car, we parked and got our keys. The room was dirty, small, and the walls were so thin you could bend them by pushing them with your hand. We woke up and were both COVERED IN BED... More

Location to University good. Bathroom clean, new tile, new shower surround. Sheets were low quality, pillows deflated, old style TV (come on even motel 6 has HD TV's). The outdoor lighting shined in the window all night. For the price it wasn't worth $120.
