Horrid hotel. Rooms were old and dirty. Unfortunately I booked through Travelocity's secret hotel deal so we were prepaid for two nights. We were stuck with a smoking room. Could easily hear the dog barking three rooms down. Housekeeping didn't replace anything we ran out of, only made beds but left wet towel on pillow. Bed creaked so loud that... More

I have always understood why people bring their own pillows and blankets to hotel room but I never felt the need to do it myself until I stayed at this hotel! Front desk seems nice enough but it doesn't make up for the nastiness of the rooms. It has a weird odor and has a HUGE blob of mold in... More

A horrible experience. Room was smelly and in need of a huge cleanup. They were moving in more used furniture to "update" the very used furniture. Had to have a room ionizer to clean out the smoke smell from our "non smoking room. Place is full of transients and weekly renters. They charged extra for our dag but there was... More

This hotel was terribly over priced and filthy. It had ROACHES and we had to go get the staff to exterminate the first night we were there and he was like oh well...Paid $30 extra for my dog to stay when the room already smelled like animal urine and the floor was damp near the door with pee. The "long-term"... More

After we had pre-paid 5 nights at another local hotel and spent 1 night being bitten by fleas or bed bugs or both.. we spent hours the next day trying to find a clean, decent hotel! We checked out a few others and after looking at the rooms, we turned around and left! We found the Econo Lodge and the... More

I was attending my sons graduation at lackland afb. From the staff to the location and most importantly the price. Great clean rooms, love the outdoor setting. I guess this hotel got renovated and is under new management. You guys empatically have to disregard the 2 years old reviews on here. Stacie

We booked one of the last non-smoking 2 double bed rooms, so perhaps it is a room that isn't frequently used. But there were dead and live cochroaches in the room, the sheets and pillowcases had the name of a hospital stamped on them, half of the lightbulbs were out, the walls and light switches were disgusting, and the inside...
