Very good location- we were near everywhere we needed to go in College Station. The staff was very nice, and we would definitely stay there again.

We moved here after finding La Quinta unacceptable. They were able to accommodate our need to have 6 people in the room (4 kids) with a room with three double beds. The room was clean, it was interesting because it had a door on both ends. The fridge was turned off and I had to turn it on and plug in the microwave, but both worked. Unfortunately, the shower did not. There was plenty of water pressure to take a bath, but the water would only come out of the shower head at a trickle. The sink area is very small and hard to use. The beds were acceptable, though it wasn't a great sleep, it at least wasn't awful. The complimentary breakfast included pastries, bagels, muffins and bread, a waffle iron, cheerios and raisin bran and instant oatmeal. Orange juice and apple juice and coffee. Overall our stay was okay.

I come to college station on buisness every wensday. After a long day of work this hotel is one of the many things that keeps me coming back. Very friendly staff with very clean rooms. A great area if you just want to relax. Granted your looking @ the highway but you will never see a poorly managed facility. It also makes me feel @ home when the employees takes the time to actually remember my name when i come the next week. I tried to venture out and stay at tthe aggieland inn once and the whole time i was there i was regretting ever doing that. Clean rooms, working tvs, great FREE wifi, and FREE breakfast.. What more could you ask for.

My wife, two teenage daughters and I stayed here during for a TAMU campus tour and football game. Plan on paying three times more per night during a game day weekend. Although it's not much to look at from the outside, it was very clean on the inside and it met our basic needs. However, the (free) breakfast, particulary the coffee, was very dismal. Fortunately, there are many fast food options a short drive away. Gig 'em '90!

we usually stay at laquinta but this was a last minute reservation as laquinta was full
paid $188 for one night,got full beds instead of queen as booked,mini fridge was out of order,how ever the accommodations were not bad for one night stay
break fast was below average,the only fruit offered was over ripe bananas with brown spots
coffee how ever was palatable
Icing on the cake: check out time being 11 am,house keeping started banging on the door at 10.45 am and 5 minutes later management started making irate phone calls to advise us that our time was almost up!
do not recommend this hotel unless you are desperate

The facilities and service are excellent.

But, when I went to check-out them increased my rate by $45 per night over my confirmation. The management would only give me a run around and an endless stream of people to talk to.

Our company is removing them from our list of available places to stay.
