“Wedding Trip”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2014

This Motel is pretty rough around the edges. The walls were dirty and badly needed of paint. Carpet was dirty and old. Extremely tiny Bathroom and very outdated. Outdated TV but it did work. The Breakfast and Coffee was inedible and undrinkable but.....The beds were nice and comfortable...nice sheets and comforter...Housekeeping did a wonderful job everyday. I stayed for a week May 12-19 and the rates were reasonable ....Manager was very nice

One night's stay was all we planned. The people-noise at night disrupted the needed rest and sleep. The "renovation" was difficult to see, but perhaps our room is the next to be done! Hesitant to try this brand again.

Room Tip: Suggest upper level if sleep is a priority. Folks were talking loudly and socializing until late int...

Not a bad place for the price. The free wifi when it worked was very very slow. It was a little loud next door. There were some dust balls on the coner of the walls. That being said the lady at the front desk who I assumed was the owner was very nice. When we got there we asked her if we could have a room down stairs. At first she said that our room was upstairs but then she looked at the computer and said that she could give us a downstairs room. The breakfast, for a continental breakfast was fresh and good.

Room Tip: If you can, ask for a room in the back.

Although they advertise that the rooms are newly renovated, we have been coming to this motel for 3 years and the rooms haven't improved. The carpets are filthy. My house shoes had to be put into a plastic bag and couldn't be worn again until they were washed and bleached. The bathroom smells moldy, the towels are threadbare, the ironing board is broken and, since the iron is attached to it, you can't use either. The office lobby smells strongly of the manager's cooking smells, so we had no desire to eat breakfast there. Although the price has always been the attraction, I now feel I can no longer stay there because it is too unpleasant an experience. If all you are interested in is the low price, then you might choose to stay there. However, I would never let children touch anything in the room.

We went for Baylor visit. Clean, comfortable, quiet. Price & location were just right! Night clerk friendly & helpful. Carb-loaded breakfast. Stayed on 2nd floor; had to call the clerk to get the heat on but stayed warm & cozy from then on.

When we checked in to room 141 the roaches began to scurry. That was only the beginning. The rooms are dirty and reek of stale smoke. Carpets and furniture stained and greasy. We slept in our clothes the first night. We were bitten at least 10 times each by unknown insects. i took pics of anyone wants to see them. They then gave us room 236. There were fewer roaches but carpet, chair and walls were just as disgusting. That was when they called to tell us they had charged us the wrong rate and wanted to charge my card 27.00 more dollars. I asked for the
owner to call, he never did. General manager refused to give me his name. Lobby stinks of curry and dead roach on the way in. Asked for money by bums on 3 occasions in parking lot. I have never been treated so poorly by a hotel. I recommend no one ever stays here. I have filed a complaint with the Texas dept of health

We are very happy with the service and room what a great find this place is. It is painted nice the bath rooms are upgraded and I was really suprised at the value for the price. The only compliant was the tv is a box tv not a flat screen. The mini fridge was clean and ready for use.
