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

Shop by day. Sleep at hotel by night. Met my expectations overall. Affordable and comfortable place to relax after shopping all day and evening. Too close to lobby and had higher noise level than I like (Ice machine and traffic).

We were tired and hurt when we checked in and the staff was very helpful. The room was clean and spacious, and the beds were comfortable. The shower was great and it was clean and there were no bugs. The breakfast was great and pleasantly displayed.
