This appears to be very new and is still quite clean and well kept. It's a modular hotel with an all suite design. That means for our king room, there was a couch and coffee table in the front of the room away from the bed. This give you a nice place to sit that many hotel rooms lack. They also have a mini fridge and microwave. Clearly catering to families and extended stays. There were a ton of families with middle school age kids there when we were there, some kind of sports tournament in town. Unfortunately, the first thing we noticed in the hotel was how slow the elevator was. This led us to search out the stairs and avoid the elevator if at all possible. Did I mention there were a lot of kids in the hotel?
The bed was comfortable and they had the pile of little pillow that the Comfort Inn chains are using now. We're getting used to them and actually starting to like them. The A/C was an under the window unit, but it was controlled by a digital thermostat which actually seemed to work. Not as good as true central air, but better than a simple hi-lo fan switch some hotels have.
The breakfast was typical for this price range, though the room was a bit small for all the families with kids that were there. The waffles in the shape of the state of TX were worthy of a facebook post. Our timing must have been bad, when we got to the breakfast area several things needed attention and there wasn't anyone visible caring for the area. About half-way through our meal someone did show up and refill everything. So it was just a temporary thing.
The exercise room off the indoor pool was just one of the room modules with all the walls taken out. In other words, it was a bit small and stuffy. The machines were all new and all worked, but it would have been much nicer to have a fan in the room to circulate some air.
The location is convenient for us, right off the loop and it's a much better place than other locations we've stayed in Lubbock. We will most likely stop here again on our next trip through town.
