While we are not too impressed with our first visit to Texas, the hotel certainly offset the negative of the heat and bad drivers. The location is set back a little, which was very nice. It was not too busy and so close to the highway and 410 turn around. The hotel is very welcoming. There is plenty of free parking and we noticed a rope-type of barricaded basketball area with special flooring on the side of the building where the indoor pool is. The lobby was very nice. The staff greets you immediately with a very pleasant tone. Everything is clean so far! Slightly different and unique decor than other hotels where they have high stools at a counter for people to watch the large screen tv, eat, talk, etc., in addition to the regular chairs, tables, couch, etc. We were unexpectedly very early, but hoped we could check in early if our room was ready. Thankfully, it was ready! All along the way up to and including our room was clean. I found the bed to be a little odd. I can't explain it, but the mattress was......different. The pillows were great! Still slept well. The only negative in our room and in the lobby were some furniture that needed to be reupholstered, because the furniture is clean and in perfectly working condition. Normal wear and tear just needs to be replaced. We went to do some shopping for our kitchenette and when we returned we discovered how good the mid week social hour is. Free beverages including wine and beer along with food. The staff is incredibly accommodating. We were going to be in our room quite a bit during the days so we did not have maid service on any of the days, but I did see them frequently as I replenished my room with supplies, gave them trash, etc. They were very nice and accommodating, as well. Katherine and Robert M at the front desk were incredibly nice and went above and beyond expectations. The FREE breakfast offered a large variety of items from eating very healthy to not so healthy. Completely your choice!! Waffles, eggs, fruit, bacon or sausage (depends on the day), biscuits and gravy, juices, salsa, sour cream, cereal, etc. All together, it was an extremely great stay and would definitely go back. I would have rated this hotel a 5 if it wasn't for some of the furniture that needs attention. I would have rated it 4 1/2 if I was allowed to!!
