“Horrible, nasty place!”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

Stevens Transport uses this motel to house their students and drivers when they are in Dallas. This is the only reason that I didnt leave!

Rooms are dirty and dingy. Actually the whole property is old and not very well maintained.

One morning while in the shower I was just about to soap up my wash cloth when I happened to get a good look at it. I found quite a few little black kinky hairs in it. I have video proof of this.

A/C wouldnt keep up with the Texas heat. Rooms were hot, especially on the west side of the property.

I would never stay here if it was on my dime. This place is bad.

Since my stay here I have stayed at other America Bests and they really were not bad at all. Nothing like this one.

While traveling through the Dallas area the choice to stay here was a last minute, too tired to drive decision. There was ample truck parking and a Wal-Mart close by which was a good perk. Otherwise, this property doesn't have much going for it except the price. I will note that the Motel 6 right down the street from this hotel is usually cheaper and in much better shape.

Pros: Many stores within a 5 minute walking distance, close to interstate, Fridge and Mirco in room

Cons: Room was dingy and filthy, bathroom was not well cleaned, beds were uncomfortable

In comparison to other AmBest's (and I have only stayed at one other) I would rate this a 4 our of 10. Overall, this is a 5 out of 10.

Only stay here as a last ditched effort.

Room was dirty. We found a syringe (with blood?) in the refrigerator. Room had crickets. Front desk staff was unfriendly when checking in and out of the room. Breakfast was a joke. Two kinds of cereal, milk, and juice. Not a very good place to stay. We left early and checked into the motel that keeps the light on. We will never go back.

  • Liked — Nothing
  • Disliked — The syringe in our room.

my wife & i recently returned from our vacation which included 3 days in garland to visit our grandchildren.. we went to the days inn there as the location was convenient to our needs.. upon checking in, it was obvious, this was an older motel , but the owners, a very nice hindu family where having extensive renovations done.. this concerned us so we decided to take the room on a day by day basis rather than pay for 3 days up front.. upon checking in, we could see the pool was very well maintained , & the groundskeeper/maintenance people were hard at work cutting grass & basically taking care of the motels appearance.. we went into the room.. unloaded all our luggage, which was alot.. the first thing i did upon settling in was turn on the t.v. .. it was a 25 in. color set.. the picture was horrible.. we called the office & they very promptly & politely brought in a new set & hooked it up apologizing for any inconvenience.. that was odd in this day & time to get that type service.. the first nite the a/c didnt work real well comfortable, but not near cool enough.. that saturday morning i went to the office & reported the a/c .. we were off to the zoo , with the grandkids & asked for another room , before paying again.. they said it would be fixed with in the hour & not to worry.. we were gone all day & when we arrived back there was a brand new a/c in the room.. the owner a short time later knocked to see if we were satified & asked about our day.. we were very impressed.. the room overall looked great, the linens were clean, the room had a very clean kept smell in it.. it was very obvious these folks were going to extremes to make this motel a nice place to stay.. & were genuinely concerned with their quests comfort .. you can be sure on my next trip to garland i will stay at this motel again & recomend it to anyone.. the owners were a credit to the motels name.. my thanks go out to these folks for caring about our comfort & making our stay in garland a good one..

  • Liked — the service & care to our comfort
  • Disliked — it was all great
