There are a lot of hotels in this area and I'm glad I chose this one. The room was clean and the furnishings are in good condition. The staff was courteous and despite the help wanted sign I saw no indication that they were understaffed. I didn't have time to go to the pool but it drew a large crowd.... More

The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The morning breakfast was good. I do think the couch in the lobby needed attention and the arms were dirty and in need of cleaning. The chair rail was chipped and in need of painting. The computer system was out because of a storm and I was told that I couldn't... More

We stayed two nights as part of a campus visit for my daughter who is considering UT. Rate was very reasonable, and room was as expected for the price. Location was convenient to the university. Only complaints we had are that the beds are small, and if you stay on the side closest to the highway, the noise is very... More

The room was surface cleaned but could use a deep cleaning including walls,doors, furniture and bathroom caulking. Recliner chair had broken back. Room quite small. Common areas in need of cleaning, polishing and maintenance. Noise from interstate was excessive as other reviewers have mentioned. Breakfast was satisfactory and plentiful although no one cleaned up tables and guests were left to... More

Standards are personalized and some things that bother me are totally acceptable for others. That said here were the things that bothered me: moldy/stale smell in the room, scratchy blankets, small uncomfortable beds, stained/dirty furniture-everywhere, unkept pool area with the smallest towels, balcony door wouldn't open. I could go on but then I would sound hotel snobby😬. I did think... More

Room was clean and spacious. The bed was very comfortable. Wifi was spotty at times, but a big storm was passing through that could have affected it. The breakfast was as expected for a Choice Hotel brand, plentiful and fresh.

When we arrived at 6am we were told that we couldn't check in until 3pm. (The website said check in stopped at 7am and resumed again at 3pm). So needless to say we had time wait and find something to do. (We just drove 10 and half hours). When we were finally able to check in, we were told our... More

Ask for a refrigerator/microwave--we checked in, discovered not in our room--very gracious & moved us---move landed us on motel side away from interstate so the window to small standing deck was quiet---personnel nice--breakfast was above average for the "free" label--ample area to eat--room charge on 7/2/16 was $65.42 total w/ tax--clean & worth it.

This hotel is clean! Comfortable bed, microwave, fridge, coffee maker, and friendly staff. The lighting isn't that good but everything else is. This is the best Choice hotel we've stayed in under $70 a night!

Not much to it. Basic needs met, but no mini fridge, no microwave. All the room have a balcony but can barely fit a chair. Interstate side was pretty loud. There was a spotlight shining on the hotel and couldn't draw the curtains so the room couldn't get too dark. Air worked really well and were given a snack bag.
