“Nice Rooms, walk to DART”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

This motel was a LaQuinta until July 2013 when it became a Motel 6. From the outside it has a very dumpy appearance. But the room on the inside was very nice. Large, with two beds and sharp flat screen TV (after I adjusted the wires to make it work) with 26 channels. The bathroom was small with a very small vanity; it would be tight for two people. There was a table with two mismatched chairs. The lighting is excellent. Black out drapes were very effective, much better than high end hotels. The motel still retains the LaQuinta beds and bedding which were very nice. AC worked great, which was a relief since it was 105 when I was there. There was a crystal clear large pool, unfortunately there were a lot of smokers around it. Michaels, a sports bar next door, had moderately priced meals, otherwise you have to drive to get food. During the work week, the area is very congested, but you do have easy access to highway. I got my room for $36 a night, which was a bargain. The only real negative is the exterior of the hotel is falling apart. Bolts are missing to connect stairwells to the second floor, beams are rotting and it looks run down. The interiors are fine, but the exterior needs a lot of work. Rooms do not contain a fridge, microwave or safe, and breakfast is no longer served. It’s a Motel 6 after all! It is a 10 minute walk to the Farmers Branch DART station, and then just 30 minutes and you are downtown. (Day pass is $5).
If you are looking for a cheap motel with easy access to downtown, this is the place. The rooms are nicer than your average Motel 6 and the rates are excellent. I would stay here again.

We came here on one of our stops tornado chasing. We hadn't planned any hotels during our trip and just "landed" in this zone. We were satisfied with every aspect of the hotel. Staff were friendly, rooms were clean and comfortable and breakfast was enough to keep us going all morning. Would stay here again if I passed through this part of the country.

We stayed here after a bad experience at another motel. The room was clean and reasonably decorated for a lower priced room. The employees were fantastic and accommodated all of our requests (even for a late check out). Breakfast was a standard La Quinta complimentary breakfast with waffles.

The bed was very comfortable but the shower collected water in the bottom, like the stopper was in but it wasn't. The AC worked well. We did not try the pool but it is an outside one in case you were wondering. One of the other problems I had was on the bed there is some sort of metal lever hanging out and I hit my ankle on it numerous times and it hurt low heck! Not sure why they think its ok to leave that sticking out there.

The breakfast was not bad: waffles, bagels, cereal, juice, yogurt, and some other items.

"Dont take cash...". An assumption, since I always pay with credit card, and a returns member. But arriving about 11:30 pm must denote a cash only customer for this property. Not really, just a late arrival. Sort of found that greeting strange from the front desk.

Not quite sure about security since my license plate was contorted the next morning....rental car with Ohio plate. Guess that's a bad idea for those still fighting the war between the states.

The room was just ok, older property, missing the tv remote, but since it was so late, I didn't watch tv.
