I had booked a room with 2 Queen beds for two nights for two reasons: the TripAdvisor reviews and a phenomenal rate found by searching the interwebs (FW).
We were in town for a wedding and brought our 3 year old and 5 month old. There is a microwave in the room, which was great for heating up bottles, and a fridge helped keep them cold. The beds were nice. The bathroom was nice. The room looked very clean when we entered. The only odd thing about the room was the location of the desk and chair. They were directly in front of one of the beds, which made it difficult to pass through that location since the chair stuck out too far. This was a minor quibble solved by moving the chair to the corner by the night stand.
The location is fantastic, just a 5 - 10 minute drive to get downtown, and most of it is highway. The closest restaurants (that I remember) were Taco Bell and Schlotzky's, and there might have been a Burger King. Those were the easiest to get to, at least.
The pool is outside, which has the typical downside of attracting bugs and foliage. My son and I went to swim around 11:00, and the pool was locked, even though the sign said they were open at 10. I contacted the front desk and they had someone open it right away. The pool towels are also located at the front desk, by the way. There are lounge chairs and a few tables with umbrellas to keep the Texas sun from turning you into toast. There is also a hot tub, but when we arrived there were 5 roaches (or whatever the bug is, pretty large) in the hot tube. Luckily a couple of young kids through the bugs out. We didn't get in anyway.
There was a "business center" which consisted of one computer and a printer. This was very helpful for printing our boarding passes. There were several conference rooms and what looked like a nice exercise room, but we didn't touch those.
The staff was pleasant and helpful, although we had very little interaction with them. The continental breakfast was typical, with DIY waffles, fruit, cereals, etc...
I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone visiting the Dallas area.
