Good location; ver clean, very comfortable, friendly, good value. Hotel is on I-35 outer road is quiet at night and more noticeable during day. This our second visit to this hotel in past 2-3 years. We it like as no pets are allowed. Fantastic free breakfast...fresh and hot.

Very nice room, VERY clean. We booked the Celebrity Suite that includes a whirlpool tub in the room, actually right next to the bed. The pillows left something to be desired they were very tiny, and I believe they were down. I personally do not like down pillows. The breakfast was nice and the dining room was very clean, there...

I booked the room on Priceline for a last-minute business trip. I would have been crazed had I paid full price for this place. The hallway to the room smelled strongly of mildew, and the room not much better. There was a problem with the overhead light which caused it to start flashing on and off in the night creating...

The breakfast was a good variety. The staff Mechelle who booked my room was outstanding. Nicole, Leslie, and Lexie made me and the hubby feel so welcome.... More

I stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed it very much! My original reservation was at the Holiday Inn location just down the street, but was moved due to a failed inspection and delayed opening date. I was pleased with the quality of service provided by CIS. I would definitely choose this location again. The spa, pool, and hot breakfast... More

Our house was flooded on October 311st And We needed somewhere to stay while we cleaned our house. The first night we were dirty and tired and was pleasantly surprised when we arrived for check-in. The assistant was pleasant and courteous. She got us checked in in less than 5 minutes and were in our room relaxing and unwinding in... More
