It was difficult finding a decent priced hotel for some reason; maybe there was something going on because paying almost $100 for this dumpy room was way too much. We reserved two rooms. One had a very bad smell in it. You knew that the carpet in the entry area was very bad because it was one color and the... More

This place is not the greatest but it fits all my needs. Great location on the I 35 service road. Close to several good eating places. The price is fair and I have never had any issues with my room. Its always clean and everything works great. The staff is always helpful and knows me.. Could this place use some... More

First off let me say this.. The bed I had to cringe and sleep on.... Has a huge blood stain like someone was killed. It didn't smell like air fresheners... I would have preferred that! The smell and room actually made me really sick. I had a fever for 6 days. The floor is gross. The tub doesn't drain. Again... More

Ok, so let me start with if all rooms in town are booked and this is your last resort you will probably make it through the night here. We arrived late at night and you can tell the company you keep by the vehicles in the parking lot. Went inside to check in and i swear it was JJ Evans... More

Breakfast is coffee, artificial juice, 2 kinds of cereal and muffins or danish (in a case that needs to be cleaned). The lady at the front desk was nice. The hotel is on the frontage road, and next to I35, so there is traffic noise, but it seems minimal. Train can be heard but is minimal noise as well. Outside... More

I guess waiting till last minute on the last holiday of the summer is not a good idea. Got this room because nothing else available. Needs updating bad. Paint on door peeling. Microwave rusting inside. frig was not cold. Floor was uneven. needed a good thorough cleaning everywhere. furniture was about to fall apart; one chair had fabric so dirty... More

First, let me say that the young girl who worked the front desk was a sweetheart. She smiled a lot and was very courteous. She gave me the code to get on wi-fi which worked well. Now on to the not so positive stuff. It seems that the owner has no intention of keeping up his motel. It is in... More

I had stayed there over the weekend to enjoy the Outlets as well as taking my kids to Schlitterbahn. The location was great and all hotels closer by were charging a large sum above the Knights Inn. Hotel staff was great and were very helpful with directions and places to eat. Rooms were great for its value and the showers... More
