Pushed thru Odessa area looking for reasonable hotel nightly rate. Read reviews on Trip Advisor for this hotel and decided we were game for this non-cookie cutter establishment. Only about a mile off I20. Lobby is quite beautiful with lots of tile, wrought iron, and wood. Room was small, but clean. All the basics were there including bottled water! Rm was definitely bigger than a room on a cruise ship - bathroom, no! Still very nice, clean and well appointed. Breakfast was a pleasant surprise. We have been staying at chain hotels with comp breakfast and this was better. Fresh fruit salad, waffle maker, granolas, and all the other usual fare. Desk people low key and unobtrusive. We will definitely stay here again.
