“Cowboyd Game Stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

My wife and I chose to stay here based on locatation and price. I read the reviews before booking, which seemed to be very negative. My wife and I enjoyed the stay based off the price of the room and location. The rooms are outdated including bed, and television. The bathroom did not have a large sink top to set things on. I LOVED the Shower, not many hotels can you find a shower that has long lasting hot water, this one does! Rooms were quiet, except there is a nearby bell that tolls every 3 hours! Staff was SUPER NICE AND FRIENDLY! This hotel is being taken over by La Quinta, so should be improved I would think. We would stay again.

Stayed December 2014, traveled as a couple

The hotel is a vintage hotel located in the heart of downtown Dallas. The rooms are comfortable with queen beds. A full complimentary breakfast is served each morning from 7:00am to 9:00 am. Within walking distance to the Amtrak station, the Omni Hotel as well as the Federal Building. Very picturesque!

One would expect cozy hotel on budget with the essence of history. However the real experience is so much different! Firstly, it is cold and you can tell that from the first sight. This place would need some reconstruction for sure. Elevater doesnt work, dust everywhere and lots of filth. It looks like there was some cleaning a long time ago. There is mold on the table under the TV and television itself of course doesnt work as it has no signal. Bathroom looks even filthier and there were few dead bugs on the floor. Aaargh, is that so hard to clean up at least those bugs??!!! If I werent so tired from flight and wasnt a night, I would walk away right away... I would not reccomend this hotel to anyone, even despite its great location in the city downtown.

If you are expecting a boutique charmer you will be disappointed. I had high hopes. With a hotel this age it's either really good (lots of character and charm) or really bad. This one is really bad. The worst hotel I've every checked in to. I was traveling on business but lucky for me I had some friends in the area with a spare bed. I stayed long enough to make a call and change my shirt and then left. I honestly felt like my health and safety would be compromised staying there. Upon arriving to my friends house I couldnt wash my hands fast enough!

This hotel is about to be condemned for a reason. Booked 3 nights and struggled to make it through the first night before leaving. Filthy, smells disgusting,looks so OLD. Shower didn't work, either did TV. Blood stains on sheets,smashed window. Lastly the room next door had prostitutes all night and I could literally hear them at least 8 times through the night. Packed up and left.

Was only 5 minutes walk from dealey plaza. Actually this hotel was in some of the JFK photos of his visit to Dallas. Room was pretty old but still confortable. The actual reception lounges looked a bit dirty but we didn't stay there to sit in reception. Would stay again.

On the plus side, the hotel was close to the convention center and front desk staff were friendly. Dated decor I can handle. Shower temp never exceeded luke warm and mold on the shower curtain made for an unpleasant stay. There seemed to have been some spills of white powder on the carpet and dust ruffle. Upon further investigation, lines of white powder lined the wall behind the headboard and below the window - my guess is that there have been issues with bugs. Stay at your own risk!
