We stayed here one night with our teen daughters to attend a UT event. This hotel is older and in an area that is mostly abandoned buildings. The parking lot is good and well lit. The back door was always locked and we had to use our key to get in, which is a plus. The office looked very messy - boxes and old magazines and papers everywhere. The attendant hides behind a wall and was always one the phone. People had to say something to get their attention. We arrived close to 4 pm, but our room wasn't ready. We accepted a handicap accessible room instead, although my daughters worried we were taking it from someone who might need it. The room was clean. It is a suite, so there is a good kitchen. I noted that kitchen had full-size fridge, coffee maker and coffee, dishwasher with soap, microwave, small cooktop and toaster. It would be great it you needed a kitchen for a longer stay. Our bathroom, however, was not stocked. One towel and no toilet paper on the roll. This gives the impression that the room may not have been cleaned. The bed was made and seemed OK. Overall, it was clean but just kind of weird. The smell in the room wasn't great - could've been the AC unit. Another person complained that their room was smoky. It was a decent place to crash for the night, but I do not think we would go back. No pool and no breakfast. I would suggest taking something to warm up since you have the kitchen in your room.
