“Nice but Aging”
Reviewed February 17, 2008

We stayed only one night but were impressed with the hotel's cleanliness (good) and central location. However, the place is aging; there was an odor that stayed in the room and hallways that I can't quite describe except to say, "it smelled old."
Nevertheless, the room was clean, linens clean and fresh and the staff were most friendly.
A note on the bathroom: it is split in two: the sink/vanity area is located off the bedroom and a door separates this area from the tub/shower and toilet area. The tub/shower room is quite small and could be difficult to move around in. And the setup could be a problem if one traveler wakes before the other and wishes to use the sink/vanity area.
The kitchen and living room areas were very nice, plenty of room, all of the amenities sought in a RESIDENCE INN and the cooking area, refrigerator, microwave and cutlery/dishes were all very clean.
All in all, though, a nice stay; I just wish it didn't smell so old... Oh, and they accept pets! Our little pooch loved the place and there was plenty of grassy area outside the bldg for him to do his business.
And if you have pets, please be kind and pickup after them; the grassy area was littered with signs of previous visitors, it was like navigating a minefield... :(

We went to this hotel after finding out that the hotel we had reservations at in Arlington was a dump. The front desk person was very helpful and got us in a 2 bedroom suite. The beds were very comfortable and the room was clean. This suite also had space for all us and the 2 bath rooms are a plus. The only problem with the room was that in one of the bedroom the window was leaking (it was raining very hard the first night). We never told the front desk about it until check out because it wasn't that big of a problem and we just put a towel in the window sill to take care of it. We never wanted a maintance person in our room in the middle of the night trying to fix something that wasn't that concerning to us.

The breakfast was also good with many things to select from. The pool area looked nice, but it was to cool to use when we were there.

This hotel was worth every penny to me. The staff was very good at their jobs and was prompt for catering to all of the needs for my stay. You get a free buffet breakfast every morning and I think that this is a good idea for a visiting spot. Room, bathroom, kitchen and sheets were very clean. Bed was comfortable too...

Over all, I would stay here from now on with no hesitation

My family and I stayed here for two days. This property is ok. I think the Springhills suites up the road is almost as nice. When we first arrived at our room we noticed an odor in the room. The bathroom had a funny odor to it. The only thing I could figure out is maybe someone had brought their dog and left it in the bathroom or something. They do allow pets in their rooms. If anyone is allergic to the pets, this information might help. The odor never left for the two days we were there.

They had a good breakfast every morning. Every night they had a light meal they serve to everyone. The first night we had lasagna, salad, and French bread, the next night we had salad and potato skins. With the meal you get all you can drink sodas, beer, and wine. This was nice because we didn't have to dine out.

They do have a trolley that goes to sixflags, hurrican harbor, and the ballpark, which is nice.

  • Liked — That they have separate bedroom
  • Disliked — That they allow pets and the room stunk

Apr 4-8, 2007.
This property is pretty nice. Not like 5 star nice, but it is clean, spacious and the staff is friendly. We booked a 2bdrm suite and it had lots and lots of room! Each room had it's own bathroom. Kitchen was fully equipped. It is my understanding these rooms were renovated in 2006......it looks like they were.....atleast ours did. We came to see the RedSox play the rangers and very convenient to the Ball Park.
Hop, skip and a jump from restraunts, grocery store, shops and the DFW airport.
Recommend this hotel for families.
Laundry room does not have a change machine....that was our only negative. (no big deal)

Stayed in the 2 bedroom suite. Roomy living room and bedrooms. Well equiped kitchen for cooking. Good breakfast with variety. Grounds well kept, nice heated pool but Jacuzzi jets not working well. (Maintenance was working on it). Staff very helpful and friendly. Trolley stop to baseball field and Six Flags. Convenient to restaurants. We have stayed in other area hotels and this was by far the best for a family.
