Just returned from a three night stay with my wife (8/8-8/11) and we both really enjoyed ourselves. I was surprised by some of the comments by other travelers as we had no problems with any of the staff. All were friendly and took care of any problems immediately.
In any case we arrived shortly after noon on Wednesday and were given our keys to room 220. I really liked the fact that the reception desk was just inside the entry door (south entrance) and the rooms right around eh corner. I hate places where you have to walk through the casino to get to your room. The second floor is actually the casino level. If you don't like elevators, ask for a room on the second floor. My wife and I found it very convenient. The rooms are basic but clean and good size. The bathrooms are much larger than average and the water pressure is fantastic. As stated by some previous posters they have a key activated electrical system. This system is very common in Europe and Mexico. It just requires the room key to be placed in a slot by the door in order for the electricity to work. We did have the same issue as an earlier poster regarding the ac turning off and not coming back on. When I asked about this at the front desk, they showed me the display on the counter that showed how to work the system. It seemed i had the card in backwards. I placed the card in properly and we never had a problem again. I was unable to connect to the internet from my room and the front desk person offered me either a room change or a rebate on the resort fee. I took the rebate. The front desk personnel handled each of these small problems with a smile. The pool is on the first floor. You do not have to go through the casino to get to it, the elevator drops you off right in front of it. As stated, it is small but clean and well maintained. We went down twice during our stay and were the only people in the pool area. We found the restaurants to be very good with many good choices. The buffet is very reasonably priced with a good standard selections. The Italian restaurant is excellent. We were lucky enough to dine when they were having a 50% off promotion. Even at full price the food is great and the service excellent. The cafe is also very good. The breakfast wait staff is full of energy and really a delight to deal with. The specials are excellent (particularly the 2 egg skillet breakfast for $3). They also have a food court with several options as well as a movie theater.
Regarding the gaming, they have a large bingo parlor, multiple table games, 2 craps tables and a small poker room that is fairly busy every evening. We were treated well by all the staff.
We were very pleased with our experience at Texas Station and hope to return in December.
