Room was clean. Bed pillows were lumpy. 2nd floor smelled heavily of cigarette smoke. There were signs on all room doors stating "No Smoking". The morning breakfast was poor. Pan sausage smelled foul. Oleo pod was rancid, also had a spoiled pod of half/half. Microwave needed cleaning. Was informed on arrival that the elevator was not working. But never found... More

Dear LindaC, Thank you for taking time to write review on your recent trip to our hotel. We value your feedback and will look into the areas you have pointed out. We do not have elevator at our hotel, and I am afraid that who informed you that elevator 'not working', I will investigate about this too. Hope to see... More

The room was very clean and seemed to have plenty of electrical outlets. The staff was very polite, efficient and helpful. We did not use any of the recreational facilities. On the other hand, the breakfast offering subpar in the selection and presentation. It's location is convenient for both arrival and departure to the major highway. However because of proximity...

Staff very friendly and pleasant . A group of friends and all found the rate and quality to be equal. Small hotel but quite and clean. A great place to stay if just travelling through. No worries about a clean safe place. You feel good about the quality.

We stayed here last summer when my daughter was checking out Texas State University. We returned this past weekend to move her into the dorms. The staff were friendly and helpful. They were able to accommodate my request for a first floor. The room was clean. Every so often, the TV channel would briefly lose it's signal. The bed was... More

Very clean, well managed property, much better than "average." I have stayed at this proerty at least three times in the past twelve months and never been disappointed. Ask for a room on the "back" side. Very quiet and private -you can open the drapes.

The room was not fabulous from the beginning. There were hairs on the shower wall and in the bathtub (which makes you wonder what other corners housekeeping cuts!) and the towels were like sandpaper. About 2 AM, the AC froze up and stopped working and I woke up sweating. I laid awake for a while and then called the front... More

The hotel itself was a little tired, but staff were very nice, and the rooms were clean which is very important to us. The pool area was clean and the grandchildren had a great time. The location was very good, right off interstate. We did not eat breakfast there so cannot comment on that.

When we arrived at the hotel for our late check-in, there was absolutely NO parking. When we notified the front desk of the problem at check-in the hotel manager offered to move his vehicle so we could park in his spot. I was shocked to find out that he had parked in a handicap parking spot and that was the... More

The pictures of this hotel is nothing like it in person. I stay at this location 2 nights and I was ready to leave. The front desk staff was not friendly at all. There was a bug in the rest room and the water was hard to turn off in the shower. When I ask the clerk for a towel... More
