AC unit hasn't been cleaned. Half assed job fixing wall near tub I am posting pictures... They speak for...

We stayed at this hotel for nearly two weeks while on business in McAllen. The hotel is clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. There is ample parking. The rooms are clean and housekeeping does an excellent job. One thing I would recommend is if you are here for an extended period of time, get a room on the...

My stay was a good one, BUT after a long hot sunny day, I really was hoping to get into the pool. I even brought my Mother for Mother's day to chill out there with me, and then we find out the pool is closed. I was probably the only guest in that hotel and they could not do something...

Upon check-in, I was greeted with a smile & an upgrade, since I am a Priority Club member. The king suite has had updates, but many things are still nasty. The tub has rust & stains. The caulk around the air conditioner is awful. Someone should walk around in every room & make a list of all the things that...

I stayed one night and when I left the hotel and checked out I forgot my charger on the headboard outlet. I realized that I had taken it and called the hotel as I was still in the area, staying at another hotel about 30 miles away and was willing to go get the charger as I needed it to...

The hotel has recently been remodeled, yet there was rust & mold on the wall next to the bathtub, the tv had an awful picture - very faint picture. No wonder the cafe area was empty at 8 a.m. The breakfast was disgusting. The scrambled eggs were yellow gelatinous cubes, the "ham" looked like Spam, & biscuits were more like...

We had to make a last minute trip to south Texas. We've stayed here before and always had excellent service. The staff was incredibly helpful and kind. Our room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was hot, and the service was great. We will come back.

First one we see is Cesar. He was very pleasent and got the feeling we were not strangers. Was very willing to help. Room was clean but the bathtub is old. Grouting coming off. Would not change our mind about staying. We will return.

I'm a Hilton guy and stayed here for a meeting & was pleasantly surprised at how nice this hotel is. Clean and pretty modern for a Holiday Inn. Very nice service and a good location off the freeway plus there is a Rudy's in the parking lot.
