I have driven across the panhandle from South Texas to northern states like CO and UT for 7 years now. I have stayed at numerous places in the panhandle to find a few hours sleep before hitting the road again. I've tried places in Lubbock, Abilene, Childress and Dallas, but came across this hotel in Canyon literally by accident. For 7 years in our random visits, we have stayed there 4 times and each time it's been clean, quiet, very friendly, and I feel safe there (something I can't say about our experiences in Lubbock). It's a great place to crash on a road trip. The first time I stayed there I paid about $80, this most recent visit we paid $109 (getting a bit high for the quality in my book). As long as they don't go up anymore, we will be back.
Two of our stays in the hotel were with our two large dogs and the staff was very helpful ($25 pet fee for having the dogs, but this isn't bad for 2 big dogs). If more hotels had the same pet policy, then we would likely have more for comparison, but this is by far the cleanest, friendliest, and cheapest hotel we can find that allows multiple large dogs. NOTE to dog owners: ALWAYS clean up after your pet, never leave them unattended in the room, or let them bark out of control; this ensures the hotel won't ban pets from the hotel and allow responsible travellers to continue using a nice facility. Please don't ruin it for the rest of us.
