I picked this hotel as a place to stay overnight on a business trip based on my experience with a Little Rock Arkansas location. The hotel overall was clean, and the staff was very friendly. There was what I considered a minor issue with the restroom in my suite, but the staff handled it quickly, and actually gave me a... More

We were drop ins and got a twin room promptly, with free wi-fi. The room was pleasant and well appointed and all fairly standard. The hotel is well located on the I 35.

Careful of the directions, as it is easily confused with similar property further south. Pleasant standard-issue hotel, clean and light, easy place to stay and meet local family. We had 2 rooms for the weekend, no problem, except a rather sassy morning manager who questioned my wife's credentials when she arrived separately. Great breakfast. A surprisingly nice touch: we checked... More

There were no surprises here, which is a good thing. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My room was comfortable with a good work area and a bed that was neither too firm nor too soft. A fridge and microwave oven were nice touches. I especially liked the pancake machine at breakfast. If you stay here, be sure to... More
