“Great place, but they missed something”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

The room was great! Especially for the price. My only complaint was the cleaning people need to check the roll out couches. My son pulled the bed out, and there was a dirty sheet just piled in the middle. It looked like it had been there for a while, because it had yellowed. Aside from that, I had no complaints.

After traveling all day I was warmly welcomed as a Gold IHG Rewards member, refreshed with a nice bottle of cool water and upgraded to a one bedroom suite with a pool view!! I have stayed here before but this time the service was outstanding! Housekeeping did a great job cleaning the room and the AC worked great! I highly recommend this location if you are in the area traveling visiting or shopping. Thanks Brande!

All around the hotel was lovely. Fresh & clean sheets and towels. The room was great! The ac is amazing! Only problem was the parking! Horrible parking area! I parked in the back to be closer to my room. When my bf and I came back from dinner Friday night (6-13-14) there were no parking spots AT ALL!!! It was horrible! People were even parked under the covered area where people usually park to check in/out. The parking spaces are horribly small and people park on top of you. All in all the parking was the only problem. The hotel was clean, the breakfast was very yummy! The pool area looked very nice and made me want to go swim but there were waaaay to many kids running around and playing in the pool.

We always demand a clean room when traveling, and hope for good service. This time, we got the opposite of each. Unfortunately, our check-in room was not clean. I will spare the details, but we were ready to look for another hotel. Brande Keys, Front Desk Supervisor, saved the day. It is understandable that a room isn't perfect, but the customer service always should be. It makes a 1-star experience into a 5-star experience. Brande quickly moved us to another room, was very sympathetic, and went out of her way to make us feel comfortable after a bad start. In the end, I would recommend this hotel because of the staff. All of the staff we spoke to were very friendly. Mistakes happen, but it is reassuring when the staff does everything they can do to correct it.

The hotel is not your traditional HI Express. Probably an older hotel renovated by Holiday Inn. It is a wrap-around hotel that is bigger than it appears. The pool area was nice inside of the square-shaped hotel. There is a large dining room for breakfast with the traditional fare, and the hostess was busy the morning we were there.

We stayed here since other hotels were sold out in Arlington due to the George Strait concert. The airport is directly behind this hotel and they appear to have shuttle service. We drove in so I can't comment on that service.

I regret to hear that you weren't thoroughly impressed with our accommodations and services at first, though I am so glad that our attentive and understanding staff members were able to turn things around for you with fresh surroundings and welcoming hospitality. It is very true that mistakes are made and things are missed, but we encourage our staff to address issues right away and ensure that every guest is treated like family. Thank you so much for sharing this experience.

In the hospitality industry, its the little things that make the difference between a good stay and a great stay. My brother and I arrived at about 1AM due to a late flight and upon arrival, the front desk was still energetic and friendly. Seeing as we hadn't eaten, we were starving. The front desk was kind enough to offer us complimentary drinks and food from their snack bar. Complimentary is a word that in use is slowly declining in the travel industry and its refreshing to hear it every once in a while.
The hotel was probably one of the bigger Holiday Inns I have been to. It was very clean and we had no issues with the rooms. I definitely recommend on your next stop in Dallas.

We reserved 3 rooms here because if the convenience of their airport shuttle for our vacation trip. The hotel was much better than I had expected. The lady working the front desk the night of June 1st ( wish I remembered her name) was great! Very pleasant and professional. The rooms were great-- large clean suite with comfortable beds. We ordered in pizza as we had 5 teenagers with us & an early flight to catch. Ate around the pool which is also a very nice area. The shuttle driver took us to the airport at 4:15 in the morning was prompt and very courteous. Unfortunately the driver that picked us up in the evening on June 5 was very rude. Took over an hour & 2 calls from us & calls from others waiting.
But that one incident certainly will not stop us from using this hotel every time we fly. This will definitely be "our airport hotel".

We chose to stay at the hotel due to the parking and airport shuttle service, it is worth the fee they charge not to worry with airport parking. The room was clean, bed was comfortable and the shower had good water pressure.
