Stayed there last weekend with the family.
The ice machine was broken. There was no coffee maker in the room. The TV was small and definitely not modern. Those things didn't really bother me though.
My wife complained that she was starting to itch after getting into bed. She had to wrap herself in a towel. I don't want to speculate as to what may have caused it. I didn't itch because I slept above the covers (because it was too warm - see below).
The air conditioner unit shuts off completely after reaching temperature, which I absolutely hate because I need that white noise to help me sleep and drown out the noise of the Interstate and the neighbors, which kept screaming at the top of their lungs ALL night like they were possessed (no joke). To make it worse, the curtains catch all of the air and do not let it circulate around the room so the unit shuts off even though the rest of the room is still warm. For this alone I would not return to that hotel.
My kid enjoyed the swimming pool and the Texas shaped waffle - for what it's worth. The location was convenient though there is highway construction going on in that area.
If you are going to this area I would suggest the Sleep Inn and Suites right behind this hotel. The price is comparable but it is much quieter (farther from the highway) and you get an indoor pool and more breakfast choices.
