“Much better in the area”
Reviewed December 10, 2011

I have to start by saying I used Priceline for this stay. Of the 6 or so hotels in the area, this was the least desirable. It was clean, free breakfast, free internet in your room. The exercise consisted of 3 areobic machines. The TV's in the room were of the 1970 era with bad reception. No glasses in the room just paer cups. If your only staying one night, as I was it wasn't the worst I have ever stayed in but within 2 blocks there were several other options that are better. The bed was very uncomfortable to sleep on. I wouldn't stay here again or let Priceline pick a room for me in this area.

Booked direct with Best Western and got a better rate than online services. Room was very clean with all amenities. Staff was very accomodating to all our requests. Breakfast was just ok, but had the basics for cereal and toast. Very small eating area was a minor problem as both days there were more people than table space. We would definately stay here again. Lots of restaurants and shops close by. For extra quiet ask for a room on the back side. The only two negatives were the extremely noisy air conditioning units and the hotel is not completely non smoking. We had a non smoking room as did the people below us, but they were constantly smoking outside their door with the smoke going through their windows and ours.

Modern, not too big, adequate parking (and the place was full, for the Cowboy Classic football game - LSU and Oregon). The rooms were up to date and comfortable, the bed perfect, the AC did it's job... I liked the location - easy to get onto the freeway system.

Dallas / Forth Worth is a hugely spread out city and really confusing for someone used to hills and such for landmarks (central Texas being pretty flat), but being here was a good central location, and it's close to a nice enclosed shopping mall and it was a good "neighborhood".

There was a very small pool, which would be a positive if traveling with children, I guess. Didn't partake in breakfast, but it looked like cereal and some kind of breads and yogurt.. basic fuel I suppose. I frankly don't remember what I paid - it was very reasonable, though, recollecting my searches for the Arlington area...

The room was very clean which was very important to us. The brochures in the room were the only information we had about the hotel and restaurants. It was misleading. The restaurants listed were actually closed and/or did not deliver. That was frustrating. We parked on the back side of the hotel due to the location of our room. There was a man standing by the door waiting for someone to open it with a card so he could enter. That was very alarming. Our vehicle was broken into the third night we were there. The tool boxes were broken into and most all my husbands tools that he travels with were taken. The laundry room was located in another building which was very inconvenient. We would be gone during the day so I would need to do laundry in the evening. I was a little intimidated going to the other building alone. I did not feel safe. The workout room was nice. It would have been nicer if they would have had headphones to actually hear the television. They said they were all broken. So, no sound to the television that was attached on the treadmill while you walked.
Just a few details could make this so much better.
We also found a drawer full of clothing that belonged to someone else when we first arraived in our room. The label had the person's name on it and through facebook we were able to contact the owner. She was very very thankful to hear that someone had found the clothes. She said they had called back to the hotel explaining they had forgotten their clothing and whoever they spoke with told them that no clothing had been found.
As far as convenience to the attractions this hotel was a great spot.

Room were ok, needs a bit of updating. Checked in first room, the microwave was missing. Was quickly move to another. The front desk person also came and helped us move our luggage. The hotel internet was not working because someone had taken the cord. The person at the front dest allowed me to use his personal laptop to handle my business with was awesome. He went above and beyond the call. I would stay here again with no problem.

After 14 hours on road stopped here. Very acceptable motel. Front desk computers were down but it didn't slow down check in one bit. Rooms nice and clean. Bed a little soft, but it had been a long day. Close to some restaurants and right off freeway. Free breakfast with biscuits and gravy but need some fruit and yogurt. Looks like this motel is near lots of Dallas destinations.

This hotel is located about 200 ft off of a very busy street with just about every restaurant and store you could ever want. It is about 30 minutes from Dallas (if you don't have any traffic) and about 20 minutes from Fort Worth. The waffles for breakfast were great. The room was very clean and looked like it had been re-done in the last 5 years or so. We had a fridge and microwave in our room, which was a plus. We would stay there again.
