“Online Mistake! Avoid if you can...”
Reviewed August 22, 2007

I havent written a review before, but this place inspired me to do so. The location is very sketchy---a warehouse/industrial area, and there are a lot of not so friendly people milling around the parking lot throughout the night. Teens on bikes, people just sitting in cars. It took 15 minutes to check in (and I had a reservation).

The room was clean, but was very ragged. The carpet and parts of the walls were stained. The noise from people in the parking lot kept me up, and another noise early in the morning turned out to be a rather large insect in my room.

I skipped my 2nd night despite already prepaying. (It may be cheap, but trust me, it isn't worth it).

This hotel was overall a very nice stay. Here are some of the pros and cons I found:

Pros:
Price was good, hotwire @ 40.00/night
Hotel is easily located from the highway
Staff was very friendly, in fact more so than in most 4 star hotels. I was surprised by this and will be a main factor for staying there again.
Room was always clean and well kept. We messed it up pretty bad a few nights with stuff everywhere; and it was straightened up perfectly when we returned from the conference.
The pool was small but not highly used and the temperature was perfect (its outdoor only though) so this was nice.
The breakfast was good (waffles, wrapped pastries, cereal, some fresh fruits, juice, and coffee)

Cons:
It is an outside entry motel. We didn't see too many questionable people around, but I am always more leary of them. This would be a fine choice though if you even consider outside entry as an option because the blinds absolutely block view of the room, the doors are think and metal and do have a bolt.
Getting off the highway is easy to this location, getting back on it can be a little tougher. We tried for days to follow the signs to 635E and never got to it, but I am sure it can be done. Just make sure to ask the desk or get a map.

Overall, the 2 cons are very minor. This was a great stay and would love to stay here again. North Dallas with ample shopping and dining is just 10 minutes away, literally about 4 highway exits, but this area will be $40-50 a night where 4 exits away will be $100 minimum. Its worth the short drive and the savings will allow for more spending at the Galleria (huge mall nearby worth the visit as well)

  • Liked — Very clean, staff profesional, great shopping and dining within 10 minutes.
  • Disliked — Confusing highway exits nearby, right off highway so some traffic noise, outside entry.
