It is inexpensive, the room was clean and cool just outdated. I had a room 10 feet from my car which was is a big plus The breakfast consists of watered down coffee and packaged Honey Buns. Their is an excellent Mexican restaurant Los Norte a few blocks away. This is not a good hotel if you are trying to... More

Got in at 3 am. Walked in and saw roaches everywhere. We would have left but it was late and my dad hurt his back so I didn't want him carrying luggage back and forth. Went to discuss a refund for the remainder of our stay but the rude, unempathetic clerk said we'd still be charged because we should have... More

My Sister and I stayed at this hotel because it was close to the airport. That's the only good thing about our stay. The place was filthy!!!!! Dirt and grime all over the phone, doors, and hair dryer. I travel with a service dog. They would not allow my dog in the lobby area. We even had a man put... More

Please, please BEWARE of this horrible place. After a hunt for a last minute hotel we decided to try since the name makes it sound nice "Plaza Inn and Suites" oh my, didn't find a bed bugs or roaches, but the minute you walked into your room you felt dirty. Tub very dirty, so needless to say no showers for... More

We wanted an economical place to stay for just one night but it was anything but restful and comfortable. Red flags went up immediately upon entering the room. We should have left but were too tired to look elsewhere. The bathroom sink was covered with dirt and crud as if it had backed up and just left that way. We... More

After leaving another hotel full of roaches and other problems, we went here and asked to see the room before paying. They gave us a key and everything looked okay until we saw a BIG roach peeking out from behind the headboard of the bed. They then gave us a key to another room that they said was new with... More

If you are approaching this location from Harrison Street (one of the two main one-way routes through Harlingen), make three left turns to get onto Tyler (the other main one-way route), or cut through...
