What a dump. Sticky floor and kitchen counters, broken window and disgusting hallway. No glasses, not even plastic, in the room. The continental breakfast was a joke - granola bar or pre-packed muffin - no juice. Way over-priced, but we probably paid more than usual rate because of Grand Prix in Austin this weekend. We couldn't wait to leave despite...

On the plus side, the staff were friendly, the room was clean and quiet, and the bed was comfortable. However, this is one of those places that's easy to see from the highway but difficult to get to. There were no cups or glasses in the room. When I took a shower, I discovered the small bottle of complimentary shampoo...

I booked this stay twice thru a website that does not tell you much about the hotel before you pay. For some reason they sent me there even though I stayed only one night at the time. Getting there is a little tricky because it is at the intersection of few roads but once you figure it out it is...

Nothing pleasing or charming about the room or our experience. Bed was small and hard. Towels had small black spots. We waited forever to be checked in when we had prepaid, and then she could not find the reservation in the computer. But the worst was the smoke in our smoke-free room. No water, coffee or anything else in the...

Hotel room was OK tidy but smelled very bad from stale cig smoke. Really bad. This place is seriously under-staffed. Garbage piling up in cans outside the rooms, other customers mentioned that management has changed often & upkeep has suffered. We purchased thru Hotwire and it was Ok for the money, but even at the discount price we would probably...

This hotel is dirty and unkempt. Walking in the trash cans are overflowing with trash and the inside smells like a dollar store. The first room we received was so hot, the AC unit was not working and it smelled like a wet dog. The hallway smelled like soup. The carpet had not been vacuumed, there were stains in the...

This is not a luxury hotel nor does it charge luxury places. As for a clean place to sleep, it's fine. It's not a resort. It doesn't even have a pool. The staff was courteous, the rooms clean and the elevator was quick to respond. As such, it handles the basics quite well. BUT It's in the middle of nowhere....

We came into town for 2 nights not wanting to spend a lot of money but only needed a quiet, clean place to sleep. Room 211 is quite clean.

The day I checked in a very nice young man greeting me & took care of my reservation for me. The left elevator was filthy as I believe they are going through some kind of renovation which they desperately need to do because the price per night does not match up for what you should receive as a paying guest....
