“Just need a little tlc”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

We travel a lot for business and have seen my fair share of bad hotels but this one was good. It could definitely use an update but the room was huge. Room was clean and didn't smell like some of the other reviews said. I would change the color of the walls it was so dark. My only real complaint would be people sitting outside in the trucks playing loud music and drinking all hours of the night. You have a room go inside and have your little party not bother everyone else trying to sleep. ( started at 9pm and didn't stop until 3am) over all a good stay. Would stay again if we come back for work.

I stayed there this week while attending a family funeral. It was the cheapest compared to others at $70 and the next available rates were at $130 and up. Hotels are rediculously overpriced in this area. I grew up in this neighborhood and 40-50 years ago this probably was a nice hotel but I don't understand why it hasn't been updated or even torn down to re-build. The industry is good in Alice due to Oil/Frocking Industry. I felt like I had stayed the night in Jail/the slammer/the joint. It was nasty. I know you get what you pay for but even at $55, a shelter might have been cleaner. The artwork was probably 50 years old and faded evenly to a graytone. The bed wasn't even a bed, it was a box spring and mattress on some an unpainted wood frame on the bottom. The pillows were so flat that it didn't even seem like I had a pillow. The A/C filter had so much dust in it and so glad it was cool enough outside that I didn't have to use the A/C. The tub had all kinds of cigarette burns even though it was supposed to be a non-smoking room. The base-boards had so much dirt on it and the walls have probably not been painted in years. Of course the sheetrock is so brittle the walls could likely fall apart at the touch of a paint brush. Come on Scottish Inn, get your act together and update this place while the potential for business is good.
The food buffet was ok. Coffee was good and fresh and the waitress was very nice courteous and in good spirits.

For a non-smoking room, the bathtub was badly stained with cigarette burns. Eventually got accustomed to the stale odor in the room & heater smells. Floor did not feel clean, but no cockroaches seen. Beds were clean & comfortable. Breakfast buffet was fair; especially the menudo very good. Would have to say was worth the price, but will pay a little more for something nicer next time.

After overviewing the the facts. a mix of comfortable beds, clean rooms, 24hours service. and i a nice complamentery hot buffet breakfast i would have to say for the price that i paid it was more than worth it. The helpfull and friendly staff and the new supervisors really make the stay very accomadating. I strongly recommend kings inn\scottish inn as a place to experience. i give it 4 out of 5 stars

The most disgusting hotel I have ever been to. Rooms were dirty, towels dirty, and plenty of cockroaches. It was just awful. The employees were rude and abnoxious. Needless to say, we left immediately.
