If you can avoid staying in the Midland Odessa area you will save yourself a lot. All accommodation in the area is over priced due to the oil boom. I paid $170 incl Tax for a basic motel room on a Sunday night here. Searching the 'net showed that it was typical of the local rates so while this review is for the Baymont, the warning about the area is for all accommodation.
The hotel itself is an older one and showing its age. The room I had was OK if it had been priced at usual rates [$60 - $80] but for $170 it was a disappointment. Breakfast was the usual fare, nothing great but again what you expect in a cheaper motel. Service at the front desk was great, both at check in and departure. Would I stay there again? Only if I had no other choice and could not plan my business so that I could stay out of town.
