“Not recommened”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2010

The rooms were old and need a good cleaning. Not the cleanest in the world but not the worst I have seen. The staff were helpful and tried to please, unfortunatley their rooms do not help them any. Covers and blankets are worn and stained as is the carpet. The room smelled a bit funny . Pillows under the cases were stained and gross. The pool was a disgusting black and green with trash floating in it. The security fence around it was damaged and a small child could walk right through the damaged parts. An accident waiting to happen for people with kids and pets. I would recommend paying a bit more and finding another hotel as this one does not even come close to ranking with even the normally low budget standard of econo lodges.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2009

Newly remodeled and refurbished, the room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast good in a very clean breakfast room. This is a very small town in the middle of Texas-nowhere, and eating places few, but the family restaurant near the Best Western was a find. Oh yes, a really neat RT. 66 old-time gas station at the main intersection.
For the price it is a good stopping place.

We stayed here because it is a pet friendly hotel. They required a $25 nonrefundable pet deposit for our dogs. Rented two rooms. Neither room exceptionally clean although the beds were fairly comfortable. Our rooms were nonsmoking rooms but shared bathroom vents with the smoking rooms. By early morning our rooms were filled with cigarette smoke. The property is old, rooms are small and dingy, bathrooms outdated. When we left the plumbers were replacing faucets in some of the bathrooms. The washing machine in the guest laundry was filthy.

Word of advice: if you stay in Shamrock, be sure to eat dinner early. Even the fast food restaurants close at 8pm.

We checked in at about 11:30a.m. Soon after we checked in we went to our room to turn on the a/c. We left to go to a reunion and came back that night at about 10:00p.m. ready to go to sleep in the cool room. When we got there we noticed that the a/c was not on. As soon as I opened the door I could feel the hot air. I went to the a/c and someone had turned it off. I turned it back on and called the front office. The clerk, Manish, said to come to the office and we will receive a credit for the room. My wife went to the front office. She told Manish that we had checked in at 11:00 a.m. and went and turn on the a/c. The very rude Manish replied, "you should have been charged a $15 fee for checking in early." Then Manish said he needed to come to the room and check it out. He came to the room and checked the door to see who had accesed the door that day. Manish said he did not know if the reader worked and he wasn't sure how to use it. He said we will not receive a credit unless we leave. So we packed up our stuff and got our credit and left.

We talked to a local after we left the Econo lodge and was advised that this incident was a common occurance. Watch out if you decide to go there, DO NOT leave anything in the room. Someone will come in after you have checked in.

This hotel was listed by Orbitz at three (3) stars. Boy is that wrong! The facility is at least 50 years old, of rt.66 era. It is in very poor repair, dirty (leaves and debris were everywhere), has no in-room coffee, irons, hair blowers, etc. It did have a very small color TV. The water pressure from the shower was so low my wife couldn't even wash her hair. The 11-item breakfast rated about a D+. Overall, even a single star is generous.
