My wife and I have had the pleasure of staying here at least once a year for the last 5 years. Unless somebody else was picking up the tab, I wouldn't stay anywhere else. I'd encourage them to let us stay here. We found the place by accident back in '09 and have had nothing but comfortable experience each time.... More

Was in town for the NHRA Race in Ennis, Texas. Hotel was a little far from was race but I am glad I chose this paticular location. Rooms were clean and staff was great. Free breakfast was a real hot breakfast with eggs cooked to order. The hotel was located on I35 with easy on and easy off, great location.

The lobby was beautiful, however the rest of the public areas were a bit run down and showed excessive wear (tiles missing from floor by elevator & holes in carpet). The area was kept... More

An older hotel with a nice breakfast. Nice pool area with lots of comfortable seating. The room was ok and the AC was abnormally loud but that helped cover up the highway noise. The price for the area was very competitive but unless you are a family or someone with pets, I think I might look elsewhere. If I stay... More

This hotel has it all, when you first walk in you are greeted not only by the friendly staff and management but you are greeted with a fresh and clean smelling place, in my book smell tells it all. Rooms are great, family and pet friendly. The overall look on the inside as you walk around is calming with plenty... More
