Tired of I-35 traffic? Stop here for convenient access to the highway and local restaurants. Clean, up-to-date and friendly staff. We appreciated the convenience and amenities in our room, i.e. refrigerator and ice!

While we were on the road my wife received a call from a polite desk clerk who told us our reserved first floor handicapped room was not available and did we mind switching to one with the same amenities on the 2nd floor, reached by elevator. My wife agreed to the change. Unfortunately, for 2 old people with hip issues,...

Although Heather was extremely friendly and professional, I will not be coming back to this property. The immediate area had quite a few events happening and this property pulled nasty price gouging. $199 for one night with one bed. We were there for work and had no choice but to pay it because everyone else was booked. We ended up...
