For the price it's okay. Personally I wouldn't return but for cheap and easy access to Frank Erwin Center it's okay. Had to wait for the room to be cleaned when it should of been done upon arrival. Smoke free room that smelt like someone had been smoking in it how strong the smell was. AC was leaking water onto... More

A gang of us stayed here for 1 night during our road trip across America. The reverend working in reception was pleasant but that was about the only good aspect of this lodging. Advertising an outdoor pool in the photos? I'd advise removing them as it's false advertising, the pool looked like some sort of waste facility. We got a... More

I won't really get into how filthy this motel is, other than to say it is a total dump. The only reason I stayed here is because it is right next to the hospital that my dad just had surgery in. It does make my blood boil when someone tries to rip me off and that is what I take... More

This place was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The rooms were disgusting, the pool was even worse. The owners of the place double parked there luxury cars even though parking at the hotel is extremely limited. When their spaces that they preferred to double park in weren't available, they took the only handicapped space--These people are a... More

It's a budget motel, it's near the University of Texas. If you need a place to stay near campus it's not a bad option, is it the best, probably not, but for a place to stay at an afforadable price, it's not a bad choice.

This is a Rodeway Inn. It is not supposed to be a 5-Star hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was clean. Excellent location (this is why we chose it two times). Needed to go to St. David's Hospital. Literally across the street. Would stay there again. Good price for what you get.

This hotel is on the lower end of the spectrum - not a place you would take your wife or girlfriend. It is a bare bones, low budget accommodation -- no frills, just a room with basic amenities (bed, tv, restroom, etc.) it is fine if you just need a place to sleep at a reasonable price; if you are...
