Well, we should learn from our mistakes. We stayed here in 2013 and everything was a mess with a remodel. I thought that it might be better the second time around. Wrong, there was no phone in the room, no wash cloths, no soap, shampoo and only one lamp had a bulb in it. Also, the outside secure door lock... More

Our truck is in the shop and this was the hotel the shop recommended. We were happy to see that it had a pool and hot tub. Well, the pool looks pretty dirty and the hot tub is disgusting. The wifi wasn't working so we called the front desk to ask why. We were told "the IT guy has been... More

I rented a room here because I had a good experience last year at a Clarion in Tulsa. This one had decent rooms, and a bit larger than ones I had previously experienced. The downsides, though. From the lobby you have to walk across the entire building to get to the elevator. And the elevator sounded very rickety. I'm not... More

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.
