An older motel. Well kept and very clean. Extremely close to Texas A&M, several restaurants within walking distance. The staff took verry good care of us and did everything they could to assist . I would use this motel again.

The lobby was nice and the people up front were real nice, but the rooms were below average and the breakfasts were bad. They ran out of coffee and we just had to go out and buy our own breakfast. For what we were paying on a ballgame weekend, this should have been much better.

I spent two nights there and it was a great experience. The building looks old, but it is clean and comfortable. The rooms was big, clean and the bed was very comfortable. The air-conditioning was working fine, the bathrooms is tiny but you can do your stuff in there without further problems. The breakfast is worthy and you do not... More

First off, I had some trouble contacting the manager, who unfortunately, doesn't speak english well. I decided to just wait until I arrived at the motel to talk to him in person, when I arrived, he wasn't even on duty! Although there was a sign that specifically stated "MANAGER ON DUTY" he wasn't even on the property. The first night... More

We stayed one night and it was fine. There is nothing spectacular or amazing about this hotel, You will get what you pay for. It was clean enough and staff was friendly enough. The computer system for checking guests in was "down". The front staff did the best she could. There was a bit of a delay in checking in.... More

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
