I chose this hotel because it was very close and convenient to classes I was taking in southeast Irving near Shady Grove and MacArthur, and the price was right (about $45 per night AAA rate).
I was under the mistaken impression that it was an 'all-suite' property, but for the quoted price all I got was a very small room with a queen bed, a tiny desk, a wardrobe (in place of a closet), and a sort of window seat/daybed that might be useful for younger children.
This facility was built in 1998 and although it still looks fairly new on the outside, my room was showing signs of wear and tear. Nothing major, just worn carpeting, bedspread a little ragged, the outlet over the desk wasn't working, A/C cover was loose and flapping around, and the window wouldn't lock properly after I (perhaps foolishly) decided to open it to get some fresh air. The room also smelled musty and might have been smoked in even though it was designated non-smoking.
Other than the electrical outlet and the window lock, everything worked as expected with no problems. The A/C blew cold enough for the warm (but not typical Dallas summer) day. (I doubt it's ability to keep up if the temp was in the 100's, but no way of knowing for sure) The wireless internet offered a choice of connection points, but with no 'nag screen' to remind you that you are on an unsecured network. Shower, sink and toilet all worked fine. A cheesy, but working, clock-radio was provided (I didn't try the TV). A bare minimum of amenities are provided - ice bucket w/plastic cups, two of each kind of towel (thin and small), bath and hand soap and a small 'single-use' pkg of shampoo - I advise you bring your own. The pillows were small and flat, but I slept fine and the mattress did not seem unduly soft, hard or misshapen.
This hotel seems to be run by a south-asian family, perhaps Indian or Pakistani, and I saw various members of the family behind the desk during my stay, but the girl who checked me in was not a member of the family and seemed unfamiliar with the process - she said she was 'filling in for a friend'. But once checked in, the staff was friendly and helpful, especially the maintenance man who had to show me how to open the drain on the tub (the plug rotates in the hole, like a flap).
Outside, parking was ample (during my stay) and well-lit. The property is surrounded on one side by a Pep Boys, on the back by a Home Depot, and the street side is on the service road of a busy street. I was on the end opposite the street and noise was not a problem. One somewhat strange feature, which might bother some people, the outside doors near my room had no electronic lock provision for opening by guests at night, so if you came back late in the evening you had to go through the front door. One door seemed to be locked all the time, while another was left open except for late hours. I don't know if this is their standard procedure or not.
As far as the location is concerned, It is quite good. There are many, many restaurants in the immediate vicinity as well as a large shopping mall (Irving Mall). The IHOP would be within walking distance if you didn't have to cross a major thoroughfare to get there, and there are literally dozens of restaurants right across the nearby highway to the north. For those who care, access to DFW airport would be relatively straightforward and reasonably quick. This hotel is also pretty close to Texas Stadium and not terribly far from Six Flags and Arlington Stadium.
All in all, I would probably stay there again due to the combination of good price and excellent (for me) location.
