Just OK

Light switch at the door controls all outlets. Clock as well. Annoying, and the don't tell you. Room was adequate. Hot breakfast was a coupon for the Waffle place next door. You get to choose one item from List A and List B. Not much of a choice.

Fine for Price until last day

I spent 4 nights here. Lots of amenities for the price. Can't imagine why anyone can't find it. I came 65 south and the big white antibellum office jumps out at you coming around a bend. Waffle house is connected to the building an you get free limited breakfast coupon but had to go ask each morning which was irritating. They seem to give them reluctantly. Then last day hours before departing a huge 2" roach went crawling up the wall and went to breakfast only to see small roaches crawling on walffle house wall behind the grill. No complaints until last day. Pool is closed permanently and abandon on hill behind motel. Easy drive down to Galleria Mall.

Waffle house right on property for breakfast each morning. 20 steps to full breakfast or limited breakfast coupon from office for free.

Very Satisfied!

I wasn't expecting so much for such a cheap price...I got there (with some difficulty, finding it following my GPS was HARD) and the room smelled clean. I checked for bedbugs and there were no sign. The TV had TONS of channels not usually found at hotels. There was a little table, plenty of drawers, and plenty of space for me. They also gave me food vouchers for Waffle House (which is right next door)! The bad: My sink leaked, but when I told them about it they seemed very prompt to get it on the maintenance list. The light switch when controlled EVERY electronic in the room, so when switched off, everything went off. Even the clock. I had to reset it three times. There were not enough easily-accessable wall sockets for my cell phone/laptop/etc. And the one I found was loose so my cord kept falling out of it. The curtain in my room did not close all the way, so I could see light from the hall and people could see in... But it was workable and I really enjoyed my stay. The staff was very nice and helpful, and I had no problem getting a pizza delivered. I would stay there again if I had the chance!
