Stayed three nights during Texas-OU weekend. This appears to be an older property that has been refurbished/rebranded. The common areas were comfortable and generally up to HI Express standards. The exercise room is small and was experiencing some electrical problems. Cardio equipment was good, but there's only one weight machine, which was missing some attachments. No dumbbells or mats. We did not use the pool.
Of our two rooms, one was fine. The other had a perfumey smell, apparently to cover up some other less pleasant odor which we could not identify. The rooms were clean, and are very spacious, and everything worked. The beds were not as comfortable as in some other HI Express properties. There were water stains on the ceiling, probably from tub overflows in the room above us. The room safe did not work, and we were informed that none of the safes are operational. So why leave them in the rooms? We also had problems throughout our stay with some of the room keys failing to work.
Breakfast was standard for this chain; however, the one morning we ate toward the end of the serving time, some items had not been replenished, so the pickings were slimmer than usual.
Most of the staff, with a couple of exceptions, were friendly and helpful. The immediate neighborhood is pretty marginal (a "gentlemen's club" is across the street), but there is adequate parking and access and we felt safe. There is a Starbucks adjacent, which was nice. As other reviewers have mentioned, the hotel is close to numerous restaurants.
