“Hotel Texas..... NOT the place to stay even in a pinch !!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2006

Some friends and I came to Ft. Worth for a girls weekend away. We had been told that
Hotel Texas was a good bet and close to out planned activities for the night so we thought we would give it a shot. Fom the time we checked in it was just a mess..... The guy at the front desk was far from polite and acted as if we were a bother to him. We picked up our keys and headed to our room. First off.... the lock on our door was broken, meaning that four single women were going to be in this room with no way to lock the door, either to keep people out or to lock up our belongings while we were out. When entering the room we also noticed that there were no blinds or curtains on the bathroom window..... great for all those "PEEPING TOMS" out there !!! The bathroom was tiny and the shower had this pipe sticking out of the ceiling that ran cold water on the one showering. A good cold shower is always nice.....NOT !!! No closet at all.... I guess they think that when traveling you must have NO USE for a place to hang your clothes. During the very short time we were there (about 30 min.) one of us took a shower..... only one of us because when she got out of the shower and was trying to blow dry her hair the breaker blew and we had NO ELECTRICITY!!!We went to the front dest to report the problem and we were told that he could have it fixed the FOLLOWING DAY. We informed him that we had plans for the evening and that we kind of needed it fixed before the next day..... did he care??? NO WAY!!! He did however say that he could put us in a different room but that if we were going to be using the blow dryers that the same thing would happen in the next room too. Again, I guess when traveling you have no need for electricity either !!! We asked for a refund so we could leave and just find another hotel. Mind you, we had been there for no more than 30-45 min. at this point. The guy at the front desk told us that he could not refund the whole amount because of the ONE shower that was taken. He charged us $75 for that one shower!! Maybe this is how they make their money, who knows. This place was horrible from the get-go. I WOULD NOT recommend this place to anyone.......

Unfortunately, the only positive thing about Hotel Texas was it's convenient location. When I called the hotel directly to make a reservation, a woman (who it turns out was the manager) was very abrupt and told me to call back in an hour. I was shocked that I, the customer willing to spend money, had to call back. When I did call back, a young man answered while this same woman barked orders at him the entire time he took my reservation. He apparently was in training. Room size was extremely small and not the cleanest. No closet or place to hang clothes (no hangers) except three hooks on wall next to bed. The morning of checkout, our toilet got backed up. When leaving to checkout, I was going to inform someone, but came to an empty counter. A woman (who as it turns out again, was the manager) was cleaning a room just outside lobby shouted at us twice in barely, intelligable English to leave the key on the counter. She didn't even bother to come around the corner, just merely yelled. We came out of the lobby to tell her about the toilet and she just yelled again that she'd take care of it.

we reserved a room a week before our stay. We were on the way to the hotel they called me on my cell and told me a pipe busted in my room #15 and bumped me out of the hotel. I told them thats ok because i'm staying in room #12. He then said it also busted in room #12. I went to the hotel to get some answers. He was not there when i entered the lobby. I told the indian lady i was here for room #12, she said there was someone in that room. There was no busted pipe. They overbook this hotel and if everyone confirms they will give your room away. Very greedy.

If your going to Cowtown and want to be in the thick of things this is the place to stay. It is worth the money after a night in the historical district, If you don't mind a little late night noise. I would stay there again It's the Stockyards not Manhattan.

We chose this hotel because we wanted to stay in the Stockyards, Miss Molly's was fully booked and the Stockyards Hotel was too expensive for us. Our room was OK, a bit on the small side but clean enough. A young guy on the desk when we arrived was smiley, cheerful and helpful. We were there on a Saturday night and got very little sleep as it was incredibly noisy with returning guests running, shouting, and laughing up and down the corridor throughout the night. The next day the lady on the desk was the antithesis of the young guy the day before. She went out of her way to be as unhelpful and as unfriendly as she could. It wasn't a pleasant experience staying here and we could only have borne it the one night. For a budget stay in Cowtown it's probably about the only option but be prepared.

I'm still trying to get the manager to give me a refund for 1 nights stay. My mistake was booking for 2 nights without checking out the room before I gave them my charge card number. After the 1st night, I asked lady at desk if we could get a refund for 2nd night. She told me "No problem" and pointed to a pile of papers that she said was also refunds. There was a sign that said "No refunds" but she insisted there would be no problem. Otherwise I would of just stayed the 2nd night. I've called twice, but the manager is never there. I would say they won't last long with new AmeriSuites hotel being built down the street.

I should have been suspicous when signs on the door said "No Public Restrooms" and "No Visitors After 10:00 p.m." I knew I made a mistake within 30 seconds from the inattentive management to the poor maintenance in the rooms. I overheard two woman on the first floor almost near tears because they had no electricty in their room for four hours. Our room very small room on the second floor had no light over the bathroom sink and a sliding door to the cramped bathroom never worked correctly during the entire visit. Less than 30 minutes after checkng in we asked that the light be repaired - it was, after 24 hours. The manager seemed tremendously inconvenienced when I needed her to open the front door at 10:30 p.m. the first night of our visit. The room rate was outrageous considering the total lack of amenities and service. The only positive is the location in the Stockyards area.
