Big hotel showing its age. While it was clean, the rooms, furniture, restaurant were worn and dated. The on site restaurant was convenient for breakfast. Rooms facing highway were loud with road noise. Mostly vacant when I was there gave the place a wired vibe.

After our experience in a number of hotels we were hoping the extra money would equate to better value hotel and were not disappointed. We did splurge and book the Miss Ellie room and it was worth every cent. A lovely spacious room with excellent amenities. The free shuttle service is worth its weight in gold as it took us... More

Our extended family stayed at the Southfork Hotel for a family reunion and to attend the Plano Balloon Festival. We made arrangements for the hotel shuttle to take us to and from the festival. It took more than 2 hours for all the family to be shuttled to the festival because the driver made another stop in between instead of... More

I bought this room through Priceline, which said this is a three -star hotel. It is not. The lobby is lovely, but the hallways are dark and narrow, illuminated by flourescent light. Likeswise, the rooms are small and extremely dark, with one small window. The only main light to be had comes from a long, bare flourescent tube over the... More

The room was very clean as was the rest of the hotel. The bed was very comfortable and there was plenty of room in the parking lot to park our motorhome and tow car.The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was a nice break from staying in the motorhome.

I must say that our stay at Southfork Hotel couldn't have been any better. We originally booked another hotel down the street online, and stay one night due to the awful accommodations. The next morning we went right to the Southfork Hotel hoping we would get a room. They couldn't have been any more accommodating and nicer. I can't say... More

We got a good rate for a one night stay. This is a huge hotel/conference center that is underused and showing its age. The rooms are comfortable enough, no updated TV's, but the bedding wasn't too bad. Towels appeared to be the originals. We were in a very quiet location, probably the only ones on the wing. Complimentary breakfast was... More
