This place looked great from the outside. I was expecting a little Austrian charm to spice up the adventure. It certainly did not meet any expectations.
Location: The hotel is approximately 100 ft away from the IH-35 interchange/turnaround and overpass. This tends to amplify the sounds of the steady traffic. If you're a light sleeper, I wouldn't count on much rest.
Building: This is a two story establishment. I looked, but did not see any elevators. If you get a two story room and have ample luggage, expect to get a good work out going up and down the stairs.
Room: The king sized bed was obviously well used. The box springs consisted of two standard sized box springs, with the king sized matress on top. While I don't fault them for that, as it functions adequately, it did lead me to investigate the quality of the matress and other furniture. All of it is at least 10 years old, well worn, for the most part functioning.
Bathroom: Very poorly ventilated, bring your own air freshener. The caulking around the tub and shower have not been done in quite awhile. This leads to the highlight of the trip: cockroaches appearing from behind the showerhead, in the middle of showers.
Pool: What pool? There was a hot tub out there, but it didn't exactly look inviting.
Service: Absolutely horrible.
On a side note, this place is neither German nor Austrian ran. Such disorder would never have been acceptable. You can find better places to stay in the area at comparable prices.
Final thoughts, as a safety inspector, it would probably take me all of an hour to have this building condemned.
