Good solid hotel. Allows dogs. Great room. Comfortable beds. Bathroom OK - shower could have used an update but it worked and there was enough pressure. Very quiet. Would stay again. It's close to hwy 35 and 80; and plenty of gas stations and restaurants within walking and driving distance.

Extremely poor experience. Carpets in common areas dirty, worn, stained, wrinkled. Most areas show signs of deferred maintenance. Musty smell in rooms. HVAC controls in room not functioning. My room had no wash cloths in the bath and I know hotel has them cause THERE WAS A DIRTY ONE HANGING OVER SHOWER ROD when I checked in. Old toilet seats... More

Was only here one night, first time we've stayed here. The location is VERY convenient if you drive in on I-35, as it is just off the highway. The hotel is well maintained and clean, and we were fortunate to get a room on a corner of the 9th floor. This is one of the hotels with all the rooms... More

I stayed here last week while I was between residences. I am sad to report: NO renovation or even commencement of one, NO early check in allowed even though the hotel was not full the previous night, NO functioning AC in the room, and NO beverages stocked in the club lounge during my stay. Andrew at the AM front desk... More

I gave such a poor rating because there is no free breakfast or wi-fi, customer service that doesn't service its customers at all, rooms that are dirty and need updated, wet floors in the gym with kids running around in it because you have to walk through it to get to the pool, and noisy. Psst, the pictures online are... More

Perfect for any occasion. Comfortable place to sleep and super clean. The beds in Sheratons are great and the staff is always very accommodating to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible. Location is excellent and the restaurant is great.

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel. The hotel is very clean, the rooms are large with incredibly comfortable beds. We are SPG members so we also had the breakfast in the Club Lounge. It was really nice. It offered hot as well as cold food. The person in the Club Lounge was so helpful. We... More

We stayed four nights, in a two room suite.It worked perfectly since we could invite other family members up to our room and hang out in the small "living room" area without anyone having to sit on the bed. The room was clean, comfortable, and well lit. The in-room coffee maker made decent coffee (very unusual), and there was a... More

Typical of a Sheraton, this was a omfortable hotel in a convenient location -easy off/on to I80. The room was spacious except for the bathroom that was tiny. A comfortable bed gave us a good night's sleep. Many restaurants are nearby as well.
