The people were very nice but the Hotel is in serious need of a complete makeover. The rugs are worn and frayed, the furniture is passable but just. The AC is deficient. In the room I was in there was a Living room/kitchen area and a bedroom. The AC was in the living area and there was a hole cut in the wall with a small fan to circulate the air t the bedroom. Result was that the bedroom got very stuffy. I hope that when the complete the remodel which I was told is coming very soon, that they will correct this. I like to sleep cool but in order to get the bedroom to the temperature I liked I had to make the living area uncomfortably cold so I just slept on top of the sheets.
The housekeeping is supposed to be done one time per week as this is an extended stay hotel, but I had to remind them on at least 2 occasions to perform the weekly cleaning in my room.
All of that being said I must add that the people were very nice and friendly. They do make you feel welcome. The location is good as it I close to shopping, eating and the main road through Killeen. The kitchen area is fairly well equipped and they have pots and pans, silverware as well as dishes. There is a microwave, and a small 2 burner stove so you can easily cook in your room and the dishwasher makes for easy cleanup.
So in closing I do hope that the upcoming remodel goes well and gives the people there the Hotel they deserve. The people are 5 star but unfortunately the Hotel doesn't measure up to their level.
