I had no idea this property was under construction. The drive-up view is a mess - all kinds of debris. Even if they are updating the rooms, the space was much more worn than expected. I don't what any of the "updating" had to do with the room phone not working. What a hassle to have to go all the...

I was only here to sleep, and sleep i did. Beds were certainly comfy, and the room was clean and spacious. Check-in was simple, and i was out in 15 minutes. This was also one of the lowest price hotels in this category. Great value for the buck.

We stopped and rented 4 rooms on a road trip. They are remodeling. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were all clean and well maintained. The shower had great water pressure which is always nice. The pool is small but serves the purpose. The vending machine could have had more options. The address is a pain...

I stayed here during SXSW. The hotel rooms are dated (older furniture and decor) in rooms. The lobby is nice and they have cookies and breakfast. The breakfast is a pretty standard low end continental breakfast. The hotel is off the highway with nothing walking distance. Would not recommend unless you have a car and/or are ready to spend a...

We stayed here during the Formula 1 weekend. Prices everywhere were ridiculous but this place was very economical. Very nice and helpful staff, rooms were nice and bed was comfortable. It is an older hotel so don't expect anything fancy. The breakfast was good every morning with pancakes, eggs, toasts, muffins, sausage or bacon, cereals, etc.

Room's were clean and updated. Staff was helpful and friendly. The continental breakfast had a big variety and extended hours for the weekend. I have noticed that at other locations as well that the the staff are allowed to pile on breakfast before beginning their shift. I just think it would be wiser to wait until the hours are over...

While the area around the Hotel is not great, the location is really good. Easy access to I35 and 183. Plenty of places to eat both formal and in and out.
