I will preface this review with the cost of this room was less than $100/night. For the money spent, it was good, but keep the following in mind when booking. (1) I read a couple of reviews which complained about the "firmness" of the bed. I like a firm mattress so this was not a deterrent, however, the bed was... More

One of the worse hotel that I have ever stayed. I always go on price line to book my hotel stay and I always click on 3 star hotel. This was not a 3 star hotel and I told them so. I am used to staying at the Hyatt or Doubletree for 3 stars. This was not a 3 star.... More

Upon entering this hotel on Thursday, July 16, 2015, it definitely was not like hotels we are used to staying in. This hotel is very outdatedand vintage. Still has the old television sets with no hook-ups for the dvd player or game system. The room was nice not very spacious though. The beds were ok. The hot water did not... More

It is located right by Central Expy so it is really noisy due to the traffic. You will feel like you are camping on the shoulder of a highway... too noisy to sleep. Other than that, everything was pretty decent. I would not stay here again because I couldn't rest at all.

Hello Yao F, I am sorry that your experience during your stay here at the hotel did not meet your expectations. Our proximity to the highway makes us very accessible for travelers in and around the area, however, because of the traffic it can be a bit noisy. When a guest makes us aware that they would like to be... More

I stayed in the JR Ewing suite for 2 nights. The suite was a nice size with a door that opened to the pool area. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was clean. The memorabilia in the suite and around the hotel is AWESOME! The bar is called the Cattleman's club. We were there on poker night so it was... More

Southfork Hotel is clean and has friendly employees. The room was clean and was updated with a flat screen television. I ate several times while at the property and the food was really good. Southfork was reasonably priced and I enjoyed my time there. I highly recommend Southfork Hotel.

Stayed for 12 nights towards end of May'15 and start of Jun'15. I must admit that the stay was very comfortable with no nuisance. Things which I liked about the property -- 1. Excellent and inclusive breakfast 2. Clean bathrooms with excellent room service staff 3. Multiple key based entrance to hotel. Takes away the hassle of using the main... More

Principally attracted by the inclusive package to visit the nearby Southfork Ranch, made famous by the TV show Dallas, however this is a comfortable hotel in its own right. Rooms are a little dated, but clean, well equipped and large enough. A good breakfast buffet and a pleasant swimming pool.
