I made a last minute trip over Memorial Day weekend and stayed here on Sunday night. I felt "lucky" to find a room in the area. First, because of the holiday and second because Midland/Odessa is experiencing an oil boom and the number of people looking for a place to lay their heads at night is growing past capacity. As a result, the law of supply and demand rules here and the price of my Sunday night stay was $281.37 (including state occupancy and city taxes). Ouch! By the way, something that I wasn't aware of and never thought to ask about- for this hotel (and perhaps others or all?) Sunday is considered the beginning of the week so no weekend rate applies. Not sure if this was some kind of holiday rate either. When I asked the reservation clerk laughed and apologized?
Having said all that, as other reviewers have noted the room was very clean and well appointed with a nice cold refrigerator, microwave, sink and dishwasher. Great for an extended stay. The bed was comfortable, linens clean and room temperature controlled by a good wall thermostat. The fitness room was adequate and the pool area was especially nice, complete with a BBQ area and covered patio with landscaping which is a rarity in this drought stricken land. The hotel has a large reception area with a big screen TV, computers and several sets of french doors which lead to the pool. This area is comfortable and provides a landing spot other than one's hotel room. An added plus, all the staff I came into contact with were very pleasant and helpful. I didn't eat the food, so I can't comment about it. The room I stayed in was a bit noisy due to its location across from the fitness center and being below some late night stompers. If you want quiet I'd suggest a room on the second floor. I'd stay here again, but would definitely haggle on the rate a bit more next time.
