“More than value for money!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

We stayed for one night and paid $99 on booking.com. The room came with 2 queen beds. Frankly, for the money we paid, we were expecting something very inferior but we were pleasantly surprised. The breakfast was great, the bathroom amenities were really good and there is ample parking. Internet was a little scratchy though and can be improved to a decent level. Overall-recommended!

Whenever we travel, we are impressed by the consistency of this chain. With laundry facilities and coffee in the lobby, it never ceases to welcome. When the printer toner was empty at night, the manager let me print some documents from his which was much appreciated. We also enjoy using real dishes and cutlery.

well, we chose this becuz it was close to UT and downtown. Pros..it was clean...and beds were comfy..and the TV is a large flat screen...BUT..it is noisy with the traffic from I-35 and very very small. There is no closet, just a rack that was next to the bed and if you got up in the middle of the night, you smacked your head on coat hangers. The breakfast is kinda cheesy, but an ok price for a one night stay. I am used to Marriotts and this was definitely NOT up to their standards. But it was clean.

Room Tip: get one on the 3rd floor for noisy feet.

We chose this hotel because it was close to i35 and near downtown. We were in town for a funeral.
Pros
It's very quiet at the hotel
Check in was simple
Good shower
Bed was pretty comfy
Mini fridge and microwave was nice
Breakfast was ok overall, nothing to write home about....oatmeal, waffle maker, cereal, sausage, French toast, juice and coffee. No eggs which was weird.

Cons
Breakfast room was tiny...only 4-5 tables. Got crowded quickly.
Hotel looks nicer on the website but nothing terrible.
It's located near some older homes but still was nice for a weekend stay.

There are several restaurants within a few blocks. We may or may not come back to this hotel due to so many other options but it was in our budget.

Room Tip: We were in room 207 which had no nice views other than some backyards.

I feel that this hotel was very well laid out and organized. The front desk employee was very nice and considerate. I think he was the guy that helped us out the most. Besides that, our stay was very pleasant. Service was great and I slept very well with no complaints. Overall, this is a very nice hotel and I would come back again.
