Average

Would recommend Mon, Apr 6, 2015
First off, the location was great, its next to a freeway. The hotel is not surrounded by a gate so safety is somewhat of an issue. There was a stain on my sheet. I called for room service and was told they were short staffed and to come get them myself. For the price, it was fine...its no Hampton Inn!! But for the price its definitely worth it.

Good Room for the Price

Would recommend Fri, Sep 12, 2014
This is an older motel, but the room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was OK (no yoghurt etc., but the usual 2 cereals & bananas & coffee). The internet was fantastic.

Dining

Whataburger is a short drive to Rock Prairie road. To get back to Texas A&M take Rock Prairie, take a right on Wellborn to campus, little traffic in the morning.

Two day work trip

Would recommend Sat, Jun 28, 2014
This hotel was convienantly located and easy to get to. It was priced appropriately for the occasion. My stay was in June and the college was probably less busy than usual. Hotel was clean and well run. I would definitely stay there again.

Scary!

Would not recommend Mon, Mar 3, 2014
This hotel is just scary. the location is less than desirable and our room was at the very back of the lot with a one way parking lot so narrow that I had trouble backing my Jeep Commander out without hitting the fence. We stayed two nights-our room was not cleaned and we had to get our own towels on the 2nd day. It is a sketch place and I do not recommend staying here-ever. It was the only room available in College Station for the weekend that we were there. If I had know how scary this property was-I would have stayed in Bryan or some other nearby town.

Lane's Almost Famous Chicken is delicious! Their dipping sauce is most certainly created by angels in heaven!

Very outdated

Would not recommend Mon, Oct 28, 2013
This hotel is so old. Room was small. There were dead crickets in the bathroom light fixture. It seemed like only the bare minimum was done to clean the room. It was supposed to be a non smoking room but it smelled like stale smoke in there. Would NOT stay there again. Way too much in price for what we got. Breakfast was frozen junk. Powdered coffee cream and cheap tasting coffee. Just an old run down hotel.
