My family and I were on our way to San Antonio from Arkansas and wanted to break up the trip. I decided on this hotel because it was on the way and would allow for a shorter drive the following day.
It is an older building in an older part of town. There was a shady-looking fellow sitting on the bumper of a car in front of the entrance. The gentleman at the front desk was friendly and helpful, and our room was nice. The building shows its age and our room had a strange smell, but again, it was more than adequate for its purpose.
I will say this. At one time I used to clean restrooms as a janitor, and I am also the one who cleans them at home. I take pride in clean fixtures. Now, I have stayed at some pretty fancy hotels and it is not unusual to see streaks on faucets and stains here and there. This place did NOT have them. I was amazed. The cleaning staff is doing a remarkable job. This alone brings this place to a 4 out of 5. The rooms are clean.
Also of note is that there is an arcade and pizza place next door with outdoor activities. This was definitely a plus after driving for hours. The kids had a blast.
Being a Courtyard, free breakfast was not included. A nearby Jack-in-the-Box made up for this. (We don't have these in Arkansas.)
Overall, a nice place to stop, but don't expect a fancy Courtyard.
