We were in town for a funeral and needed a place to stay. Gonzales is a fairly small town but housing is at a premium due to the recent oil boom, This chain is not one of my favorites but was slightly cheaper than the Holiday Inn Express right next door. For Friday night, it still cost me $98 at the Senior rate.
Check in was easy, and the common areas were neat and clean (we saw a lady cleaning down there a couple of times during the day). They had a nice little lobby and a breakfast area. Our room on the third floor was small, but very clean. Layout was slightly awkward, the chair was in a place where you could not see the TV. There was a large closet, a frig and a microwave. Nice large bathroom, and we had a shower (as we requested) rather than a tub. Other than being a little dark in the shower, that area was nice.
The room was rather dark, even with the lights on. I would have opened the curtains, but the view of the trailers in the back was not great and there were no sheers at the window.
I did not know what to expect for breakfast (and I have some concerns in this area since my husband is gluten intolerant) but it had a pretty good selection: scrambled eggs (made fresh), bacon, potatoes, the usual waffle maker, bagels, muffins, etc. I will give them an A for keeping hubby happy!
I think I would have figured this to be higher in my rating if it had been less expensive. There was nothing really wrong with it as a "value" hotel, but the cost was a little too much in my opinion for that.
