We stayed at this Super 8 on our way to Fredericksburg for one night. I guess I can't complain too much about the hotel itself, because it was super cheap - so basically you get what you pay for. Nothing terribly fancy, but not filthy either. The hotel itself looked like it hadn't changed since it first opened its doors, so don't expect anything modern or updated.
Noise is a factor if you are a light sleeper, as this hotel is literally right on I-35. You will hear large trucks and cars passing at all hours of the night. The only saving grace is that the air conditioner seemed to drown out some of that noise, but still, it's not a peaceful location. It also doesn't seem like an overly nice area to be wandering around in at night.
The girl at the front desk who checked us in seemed less than thrilled to be at work and was super annoyed that we and the customer behind us, interrupted her personal phone call. After she began to help us, another man walked in so she picked the phone back up and said in a hushed, annoyed voice, "I'll have to call you back." Sorry for the inconvenience? Anyway, I don't recall her name but I'm pretty sure she had red hair.
Breakfast was standard fair for a hotel this size - waffle maker, ceral, packaged pastries, yogurt, brown bananas. Pretty typical.
