This hotel's overall appearance was not very clean. It just seemed a dingy. The room was okay, however, there was a worm in the bathroom. There was a restaurant across the parking lot that I don't think was part of the hotel. It seemed that a lot of people who were not staying in the hotel were in the parking...

We stayed two nights and have no complaints. The breakfast had healthy offerings and a very nice lady to help. The room was large for a mid priced motel, I loved the sinks in the bathroom....yes two sinks. Had a micro and fridge, which is a plus for a multi night stay. The Mexican restaurant was very good...according to my...

Things went great until it was time to get things out to our vehicle and leave. My wife is disabled and the Disabled Parking spots were right in front of our room. As both were taken when we got to the hotel, I went out to move my vehicle so my wife could use the ramp and have an easier...

I've stayed at this hotel before and will definitely stay there again. This hotel is obviously well liked by a lot of people since always has a lot of guests. The breakfast offerings are very nice and the rooms are very comfortable.

This place is a short distance from the interstate & it's kinda tucked in so it's easy to miss. Traffic on the street was only bad because people were were no keeping with the flow. There are several business that border this property so it's a busy area, in the evening at least. The hotel had their act together so...

I had to come to town because my son, who attends TTU was having surgery. The staff was friendly and I was allowed a late check out so I could run back and forth from the hospital. The hotel is very convenient and quiet, even with all of the traffic from the restaurant next door. The rooms are spacious and...

A very convenient place to break Journey and have comfortable sleep. This place is almost on main highway. I was provided with excellent service and clean and comfortable room. Manager Paul is very considerate in listening and helping out for any request. Good free breakfast in the morning made me drive 500 miles to my destination without stopping for food.

We were just passing through so only stayed one night. The hotel was very clean, bed was comfortable, and the room was very spacious! The man at the front desk when we checked in mentioned that he hadn't worked there for very long... he was dealing with a lady in front of us who's reservations had been messed up and...
