The hotel was absolutely beautiful! All the staff were very helpful and kind. There is a complimentary shuttle service within five minuets of the hotel. They also offer free shuttle service to the Famous South fork ranch, where the Dallas TV show was filmed. If I ever come to the area again, I will definitely stay there. I felt like... More

When we got down to seriously planning our great retirement trip around 16 months ago we both jotted down places we would like to visit. Texas was high on my list and then my wife said that she would like to visit Southfork as she was always a huge fan of the original shows. We searched the internet and found... More

This hotel was a total surprise. It was every modern (except shower heads). Every employee we met was friendly, helpful, and polite. I would highly recommend. Full breakfast and a shuttle provided. A must is a trip to the South fork ranch, which is close by and great fun.

Hotel is a little dated, but staff was very friendly and accommodating. Complimentary breakfast was very nice. Sandwich I had in Gentleman's Club was also good. Shuttle to and from Southfork Ranch was prompt and drivers were friendly. However, as a previous review stated, keys are deactivated for outside doors BEFORE check-out time, early in the morning, in fact. We... More

I was going to give this high ratings, as the people were really awesome and everything was nice, albeit a bit dated. However, on the morning of our check out, our keys quit working while we were at breakfast - well before the noon checkout time. Unfortunately we didn't notice until we got locked outside in the back, and had... More

Clean, great guest services and an overall great environment. Bridie and Joann at the front desk are two wonderful ladies. And the driver that took us to Southfork Ranch was awesome as well. I will definitely be staying here again. Nice, cozy and comfortable!!

Check-in took forever, because the guy talks and talks, but he was nice. Told me I was upgraded to a full breakfast (which turned out at breakfast either they didn't get the memo or he was just making it up? No idea.) Room was nice and very clean. I liked the cream colored towels - one gets tired of all... More

Average is not bad, it's just not great, but we were happy to get a very reasonable package deal through an on line promotion that included a tour of the Southfork Ranch, a king sized room, and breakfast for about $80. Yee Hawww. The ranch itself is a bit of a let down. You realize how small the house is... More

Stayed at the hotel for a wedding reception at the ranch. Friendly staff,nice bar area and a good breakfast which is included. The rooms really need updated though. I don't think the parent company has put much back into the facility in quite a while. It was clean though.

We had a blast !! The staff went out of thier way to be helpful and was very friendly. After the party at Southfork Ranch, they let us hangout in the restaurant area after it closed and play games and we had pizza delivered. The pool has a wheelchair lift, but we didn't use the pool. They shuttled us back... More
