We ended up here as the result of an airline screwup. We saw that they offered a AAA rate and an airport shuttle and thought it'd be a good place to go. We were picked up in an old Honda Odessy with 250,000 miles on it (wasn't pleasant at all). Once we got there, we were able to check in very quickly.
Note: this hotel has zero elevators.
We walked all the way across the hotel to our room, and on the way we found water damage everywhere on the ceilings in the hallway.
The room itself was okay. The bathroom had cracked tile, the toilets weren't too functional, and the fan didn't work. The beds were comfy, they had IHG's pillow menu available, and the TV was decent.
In the morning, they offered breakfast in the restaurant for about $6. Really good breakfast.
Some how, the morning desk staff was awful. We needed to get to the airport, and the lady at the desk asked if we could wait over an hour for the next shuttle, when their "shuttle" was sitting right out front. Finally got her to get someone to drive us there.
Overall, I'm pretty sure you could get a better hotel in Brownsville for the same amount of money or less.
