“Pros and Cons! Judge for yourself”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014 via mobile

Not the best area for a woman alone so I'm glad my husband was with me. We had a dog with us so that's why we picked this place. Also it was close to where we needed to be the next morning. There is an iron but no ironing board. The heater thermostat apparently didn't work right. This is February and it's cold and we had the air conditioner on! We tried the heat but we got so hot we thought we would cool the room off. It never got cold enough to turn it off! I can't say I understand that. The room had a functioning refrigerator and microwave. The bathtub is old but the room seemed clean enough. No signs of any type of infestations. We did find somebody's dirty sock under the edge of the bed skirt though. There was only one functioning outlet in the room that wasn't already used for a lamp. There was a hair dryer in the vanity area. The room was small with two double beds. The sheets and pillows were ok. The towels were old and should be replaced but they did the job. The hot water in the shower was strange also. I got it to the temp I wanted and then it would cool off a little and then right back to the right temp. There was plenty of hot water for three people's showers and my husband shaving. The price was about $47 including tax so it met the needs at the time. The internet worked but seemed a little slow but that's to be expected with that many people in one location.

Stayed February 2014, traveled with family

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.
