Not a good choice

The room smell mold and in fact can found on some furnitures surface, water from the faucet has strange smell that I can't use it to brush my tooth. Told the stuff TV remote not working but have not been taking care for the while 3 days I stay. I would look for different hotel next time I visit the area.

Overnight stay

The location off the access road made it easy to locate. Staff on check in and out were both very helpful, courteous, nice and very informative on what was going on in Brownsville at the time which was Charro Days. Being off the freeway we expected to have a noisy room but so not the case. Quiet, beds were comfortable and a relaxing stay was had. For the price we would absolutely recommend a stay here, also a good mexican diner in lobby; hence no free breakfast but inexpensive menu.

Make it quick: in and out, gone!

Took my daughter to take the IBT test, right across the Expressway (Teacher Builder), the beds were comfortable, I thought it was all clean until I found facial hair in the bathroom basin and long dark hairs in the bathtub..not good, the pillows were more on the flat side, The following night we stayed in McAllen, near "La Plaza Mall" for the same money (this one included Continental Bkfst) and in a much better room ( at "La Quinta".)
