My husband and I chose to stay here as it was convenient to the Stockyards and whilst we had a hire car, we wanted to go there one night and have a drink so didn't want to stay to far away.
The room was clean, if a little old fashioned and it did smell a little bit of smoke but I know the hotel is no smoking now so a fresh coat of paint and some new carpet and drapes would no doubt sort this out.
There was a fridge, a microwave and a kitchen sink so you could prepare your own food - but take your own cutlery and crockery as there wasn't so much as a glass or spoon in the cupboards - a little pointless! The tv is old and decrepit but to be honest, we only had it on to get some sports news and weather updates so it didn't bother us. The air conditioning worked well but was fairly noisy so we couldn't leave it on over night.
The staff were very helpful whilst we were here calling a cab for us one night and immediately assisting when we rushed in one day to have showers and get back out but discovered the maid had only left hand towels. I went down to the desk and the lady there went and got me some straight away. When we returned later that night, we found some more had been left in our room too!
Breakfast is quite nice - you have a choice of make them yourself waffles, toast, cereal, fresh fruit and cakes and pastries. There is also coffee, orange juice and apple juice although I tried this one morning and it may as well have been water!
There is an awful lot of construction work going on meaning that the exit our SatNav was closed and we had to go long way round to get there. Once we worked it out though, we knew when the SatNav said 2 miles to our exit, we actually needed to get off at the very next exit so it was all fine after that.
My one small sort of complaint is at how thin the walls are - there was someone in the next room who's mobile alarm went off every morning at 7am, ringing and vibrating and we could hear it so clearly that the first time, my husband asked if it was my mobile!
There are a few eateries nearby and we tried the Texas Roadhouse one night and found it to be very reasonably priced and a bit like TGI's, fun and loud and good for families. We avoided the Redneck Heaven place when a waitress came outside to serve some drinks and she was wearing very few clothes! Not our cup of tea but each to their own!
