Hotel was cheap and there's reasons why. Carpet dirty, sink rusty, towels like cardboard, springs poking out of the bed. Breakfast is a joke. Coffee e in room but only plastic cups. Paid for three nights - only stayed two - they would not refund last night - not enough cancellation notice - yea right. No clock in room -... More

Clean, rooms upgraded, very good linens, comfy bed, a/c worked, hair dryer, in room coffee, basic breakfast, lots of hot water, easy to get to and convenient to everything. Front desk was efficient and they even had free maps of the area sitting there for the taking (nice if you are from out of town) and the local paper.

Rooms were clean and tidy, and a good size. Laundry facilities, free Wi-Fi that works, breakfast is basic, but does the job. Taco bell next door and a small mall a few hundred meters away. Short drive to everything - you will need a car to get around (its Texas!). Cant complain.

Rooms are clean, maid service was good, front desk friendly. We stayed three nights this time and have stayed here before over the last few years. Rooms have frig and microwave and coffee pots. Breakfast is a little sparse, no protein but doable. Most important - clean, bug free and comfortable beds. High speed internet worked great!

The Breakfast and Coffee was inedible and undrinkable but.....The beds were nice and comfortable...nice sheets and comforter...Housekeeping did a wonderful job everyday. I stayed for a... More

One night's stay was all we planned. The people-noise at night disrupted the needed rest and sleep. The "renovation" was difficult to see, but perhaps our room is the next to be done! Hesitant to try this brand again.

Not a bad place for the price. The free wifi when it worked was very very slow. It was a little loud next door. There were some dust balls on the coner of the walls. That being said the lady at the front desk who I assumed was the owner was very nice. When we got there we asked her... More

Although they advertise that the rooms are newly renovated, we have been coming to this motel for 3 years and the rooms haven't improved. The carpets are filthy. My house shoes had to be put into a plastic bag and couldn't be worn again until they were washed and bleached. The bathroom smells moldy, the towels are threadbare, the ironing... More
