“great unwashed”
Reviewed July 30, 2006

The hotel lobby was ok and the staff was friendly. The room was reasonably clean. The walkways and common areas were so filthy that it really detracted from the experience. Cigarette butts and black gum everywhere. Old dog droppings on the walk that had been there for days. The door mat in front of each room was full of bits of trash.

Stayed July 2006

We had requested an non smoking room and according to the sign on the door it was non-smoking. However, our room was next door to a smoking room with very heavy smokers. The smell was incredible and very hard to ignore, and after leaving it was a lot of work to get it out of our hair, clothing and luggage. We will never stay in this hotel again and will always quailify the rooms we stay in as "A non-smoking room surrounded by non-smoking rooms."

We stayed for one night on our way to Amarillo, TX in May of 2005. We received a nice clean king room, with a very quiet AC unit on the first floor. Check in was quick and efficient, as was check out. It was a quiet night, and the beds were comfortable.

We ate at the Denny's in the same parking lot, since my husband is gluten intolerant and they don't always have anything he can eat at the provided breakfast. I did get some of their coffee and a paper when we left, and it looked like they had an adequate breakfast.

This hotel had just been equipted with free wireless internet access (Thank you, LaQuinta!) and it worked great - such a nice feature.

The only thing this hotel did not have was an exercise room, but since it was a short stay, we didn't miss it.

My father always stays at this hotel (he's 76) and I can see why. Very Nice, clean, and the rooms are bigger than normal for a chain. The free breakfast has Kolaches you can microwave. Very nice people working there, and there is a Denny's right in front than you can walk to.
