“Clean, Comfortable, and Pet Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

We stayed here for a quick stop while traveling across the country. The hotel accepts dogs without additional fees, which is the primary reason we stayed here. The hotel appeared to be relatively new and was very clean. We stayed in a suite with a separate bedroom, which was very spacious and worth the extra money. The pool was very nice- the kids had a great time, and the pool deck had plenty of chairs and tables for relaxing while the kids stayed active in the water. Breakfast was typical for complimentary fare, and the coffee was decent. Check in and check out was smooth and efficient. The hotel is convenient to I-35 with lots of choices for food via a short drive.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

My family and I checked into the hotel for Christmas after reading good reviews about the hotel.
We checked in late Christmas Eve and were amazed by the size of our two bedroom suite. We had a large entrance way, a good size room with a pull-out sofa, mini fridge, sink and microwave. The bedroom was incredibly large and spacious. Maybe a bit too spacious. It was almost like the room was missing furniture. The room could have used a could extra tables and lamps. However, this is a minor complaint.
Service was hit and miss. When we checked in, there was dirty trash in the garbage can under the sink. While it was off-putting, it was easy to understand and forgivable seeing as the trash can was hidden. Sadly though, when I went to the front desk to ask that the trash be emptied (as it was quite disgusting and could start to stink) and extra blankets, the front desk clerk failed to take action by the time we returned from midnight mass. The front desk clerk then working when we got back was quick to remedy the situation and was apologetic. A couple days later, the housekeeping crew failed to live up to expectations; a dirty washcloth balled up in the corner of the tub was left behind after the cleaning. It would be hard to believe that the housekeepers would think that the cloth was meant to be re-used.
The breakfast in the morning was lack luster at best, and probably more accurately described as bad. The eggs were bland and juice was watery. The waffles were good and bacon was passable.
Overall, the hotel was great, especially for our needs. The room was clean and spacious, a perfect place to celebrate Christmas while on the road. The so-so service and less-than-ideal breakfast can and should be overlooked when looking at the stay as a whole.

Room Tip: Two room suites are amazing and highly recommended

From the front desk service to the great room I stayed in it was great! I really enjoyed my stay. I was able to get a good work out and have a hot cup of coffee! Everytime I'm in Denton I'll be sure to stay at this hotel!

Sincerely,

Came to visit family for the holidays, did not expect the rooms, hotel, and staff to be awesome!. Staff was always pleasant and ready to help in any way. The GM was very sweet and accommodating, always making sure we had everything we needed. Would not expect this kind of accommodations for the inexpensive rate we paid!!!

The Hotel was very clean and new. Everyone from the front desk clerk to the General manager made everyone in our family feel very welcomed. The location was perfect, close to everything. I was very happily surprised that we got such good quality for the great price of $89.00 a night.I will recommend this hotel to everyone!
