Reviewed February 15, 2012

We stayed here last August. We love Denton and my boyfriend and I meet here a lot to get away since we live in different cities. This is a great value for the price. Very clean. Mostly quiet. There are pets allowed so people should be aware of this. They are not allowed in the dining area at breakfast, however. We did not really hear them while we were in our room so for us it was not an issue at all. This time, the only problem is that some children were not supervised and caused a couple of problems that the hotel staff were not aware of until later. Breakfast was good, and it is so busy that it takes a staff person watching it the whole time to keep it all full. It is hot, with eggs, bacon and then of course, the waffle maker. There are good restaurants down on the square by the courthouse, so be sure to eat at a couple. Downtown has local spots and the food is good and not like a chain out on I- 35. My reccomendations are Cartwright's Ranchouse, Banter's, Giuseppe's and Rooster's which has great barbeque. Giuseppe's is Italian and is on 8th and Locust. Jupiter house is a GREAT coffee hangout and many students bring a book or their computers in. Our other fav is Recycled Books on the square. A huge used bookstore that has many rare books, and music as well, even vinyl... enjoy!!

Room Tip: I reccomend a higher floor for less noise. Also be sure to reserve earlier so you get a better rate...

I'm not sure if this hotel is new or just remodeled, but either way this the best time to go for it. Everything seemed fresh, new, and well-maintained. The front desk clerk was very friendly and helped me out when I realized I left my toothbrush at home. Not much of a view, being a highway hotel, but it was quiet and great for a night. A basic breakfast of the usual suspects (oatmeal, cereal, bacon, waffle iron). There seemed to be a number of guests staying long term, so clearly some have found it to be a good home-away-from home

There isn't much in the way of next-door eating options nearby unless you want to hike down to the Sonic, but there are a variety of quick options less than a five minute's drive away. (I found a granola-type grocery store with cafe and salad bar at Cupboard Natural Foods about 7 minutes away on Elm St and Congress, a relief to have somewhat healthy food on the road.)

UNT was just about 10 minutes away, an easy drive.

Getting in off of University Dr. was interesting. You're set if you're coming south on the I-35 and can get on the frontage road but otherwise you'll need to come in the back way off University, turning onto Mesa Drive, then taking a left when it ends onto Barcelona, then a right on Worthington, a right on Schuyler St., and then turn into the SECOND entrance (the first taking you to a dead end). It's not so bad, just good to know. Google mapping it before coming may help but I found it even with a few three point turns.

Friendly staff…nice room…good hot breakfast…near restaurants...but bad location and we drove the wrong way up a one way street to get there and I had to ask where the right road to get there was located.

This hotel is nice and new. The hot tub and pool are great! The rooms are very nice and clean. The bathrooms are clean, large, and well appointed. They are pet friendly. The staff is nice and helpful. Breakfast is included, but definitely NOT recommended. This hotel would be a high five star if they could re-do their breakfast. The eggs and sausage were awful. The juice was colored water. This is such a shame because this is one of the nicest hotels I have been in in a long time.

Room Tip: The hotel is very hard to get to. You have to go through a maze if you are coming from the South.

We stayed here for a quick stop while traveling across the country. The hotel accepts dogs without additional fees, which is the primary reason we stayed here. The hotel appeared to be relatively new and was very clean. We stayed in a suite with a separate bedroom, which was very spacious and worth the extra money. The pool was very nice- the kids had a great time, and the pool deck had plenty of chairs and tables for relaxing while the kids stayed active in the water. Breakfast was typical for complimentary fare, and the coffee was decent. Check in and check out was smooth and efficient. The hotel is convenient to I-35 with lots of choices for food via a short drive.

My family and I checked into the hotel for Christmas after reading good reviews about the hotel.
We checked in late Christmas Eve and were amazed by the size of our two bedroom suite. We had a large entrance way, a good size room with a pull-out sofa, mini fridge, sink and microwave. The bedroom was incredibly large and spacious. Maybe a bit too spacious. It was almost like the room was missing furniture. The room could have used a could extra tables and lamps. However, this is a minor complaint.
Service was hit and miss. When we checked in, there was dirty trash in the garbage can under the sink. While it was off-putting, it was easy to understand and forgivable seeing as the trash can was hidden. Sadly though, when I went to the front desk to ask that the trash be emptied (as it was quite disgusting and could start to stink) and extra blankets, the front desk clerk failed to take action by the time we returned from midnight mass. The front desk clerk then working when we got back was quick to remedy the situation and was apologetic. A couple days later, the housekeeping crew failed to live up to expectations; a dirty washcloth balled up in the corner of the tub was left behind after the cleaning. It would be hard to believe that the housekeepers would think that the cloth was meant to be re-used.
The breakfast in the morning was lack luster at best, and probably more accurately described as bad. The eggs were bland and juice was watery. The waffles were good and bacon was passable.
Overall, the hotel was great, especially for our needs. The room was clean and spacious, a perfect place to celebrate Christmas while on the road. The so-so service and less-than-ideal breakfast can and should be overlooked when looking at the stay as a whole.

Room Tip: Two room suites are amazing and highly recommended
