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

We went for Baylor visit. Clean, comfortable, quiet. Price & location were just right! Night clerk friendly & helpful. Carb-loaded breakfast. Stayed on 2nd floor; had to call the clerk to get the heat on but stayed warm & cozy from then on.

When we checked in to room 141 the roaches began to scurry. That was only the beginning. The rooms are dirty and reek of stale smoke. Carpets and furniture stained and greasy. We slept in our clothes the first night. We were bitten at least 10 times each by unknown insects. i took pics of anyone wants to see them.... More

We are very happy with the service and room what a great find this place is. It is painted nice the bath rooms are upgraded and I was really suprised at the value for the price. The only compliant was the tv is a box tv not a flat screen. The mini fridge was clean and ready for use.

Wanted a motel with exterior doors. Read the reviews and decided to drive by. I guess they moved the van(previous photo review). The parking lot was clean. Our room is great. We have a king sized bed with a duvet cover(laundered between guest) more pillows than the Westin where we paid a lot more for a room. The owner was... More
