I stayed for 8 nights at the hotel - which tells you that it can't have been too bad and, for the price it was pleasant enough. A few good points:
- The bed was very comfortable
- The staff were friendly
- There was a place to print at no cost
- There was a little shop open 24 hours to buy frozen meals, snacks etc.
- There was a microwave to heat up the food
- There was water and coffee available all day in the breakfast area
- The wifi was fast and free
- It was a short walk to the Riverwalk area and shops - I didn't have a car
- The room was clean and large
A few things that could be improved:
- Breakfast got a bit boring. Same fruit. Same breads. Same scrambled egg. Felt a bit "processed"
- Bedroom was dark even with all the lights on and even in the day time. Furnishings are dark and lighting "old-fashioned" so feels dark all the time. A bright overhead light would be good.
- They had a damp problem down the corridor so had a dehumidifier working all day and night for the first few days. Was a bit noisy although it was a "white" noise so didn't disrupt me too much
Something that may be a problem for some people is having to do the short walk under the highway to town. I didn't feel unsafe though, even at night (and am a woman travelling alone) and it was well lit, although deserted. However, I can understand how some people may want to be closer to Riverwalk and not have to do this walk.
Overall I enjoyed my stay.
