First of all, going in it took me 15-20 minutes to check in. They had a woman in training, so we were patient while they were teaching her. Yes, after 4 hours of driving you really don't feel like dealing with this... but, you try to be supportive. Everything by the book, go get me your license # on your car... ect. We got to the room, There were no windows. None. I like windows. It was just a few rooms like this because of the lay out.. but we got one of them. It was right by the stairway and a lot of noise up the stairs on this Saturday night. I walked by the laundry room, and I saw at least one fan (not in use, unplugged) I thought this will drown out the sound of the people stomping up the stairs.. and the ice machine/cokes by our door. The front desk lady there said she would look for a fan for me. I was happy, gave her a $5 or $10 tip for her help. I never got a call from her. I called down 2 hours later telling her what room I was in thinking she forgot... well I can tell she never gave it another thought after we spoke. That is ok.. she did not ask for the tip.. I gave it to her.. I will chalk this one up to experience. This tells you what kind of people work here though. So, night comes.. If you have a bad back or something and you are the type of person that has to sleep with a board for your back this is the place for you! You plop down on this mattress and you get a shock wave up your spine...absorbing all the shock. Not good if you have that bad back though. Ease down gently. It will hurt. We go to sleep... At 1:00 we hear crickets!! I killed 2 earlier.. Gosh.. I never even connected these 2 bugs in my room in the day with the possibility of the living hell we were going to have that night. It reminded me of the "Invasion Of the Frogs" movie that came out a few years ago. I would hear these crickets.. I would get up.. I killed 3 of them in the bathroom. I felt a victory thinking that was the end of that.. Boy was I wrong. My wife would say "Matt!" "Matt!" Get up.. go kill them they are driving me crazy.. I was up again.. pulling chairs away, trying not to wake up our 8 year old daughter.. I killed about 10-12 that night. Somehow she DID sleep through it. Gosh.. I would love to be a kid again. I would get up and kill this one.. that one... never found the one under the bed until morning. I finally got up at 6:00 am and went downstairs convinced I was not going to sleep anymore. This is the best part of my stay. They had breakfast. It was included. Yes, I drank a lot of coffee, and if anyone said anything about me drinking too much (over my quota) I was going to hit them with a wet noodle! I can only give 1 star for this stay because of the horrible stay. The crickets may have been an invasion that just happened.. but i felt they could have done something to prevent this. I left this place and went to another Hotel the next night. Yes.. I will give a very good review of this place next.. No crickets there at all. I would suspect they have the number of the local exterminator. But the next hotel saved our trip to Marble Falls.
