As a Dallas fan I absolutely loved it. If I wasn't a huge fan of the show it would have been nice anyway. Most of the bad reviews I read were about the noise on the highway. I requested a room away from the traffic when I made my reservation and they were happy to arrange that. Our room was... More

The hotel is nice with the décor definitely promoting the Dallas television show. The staff is friendly and helpful. I did have a couple of items that did not leave a good impression for me. First, at about 10pm, sewer water starting to come up from the bathroom basin, which smelled exactly like a sewer. The next morning while attending... More

I watched the original Dallas for most all of its run, so staying the night here, in conjunction with the Southfork tour the following day, was a must for me and it did not disappoint. We arrived late on a Saturday afternoon. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful and checked us into to room 1100. The room was... More

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.
