This was a perfect fit for the trip I took. I was only there for 8 hours to sleep. I had a shower and a bed. It did the job. Thank you

Great location and price

Great hotel for the money you pay. By far the best location in downtown Dallas, even better than Hyatt. The hotel is not posh, but decent. The rooms are clean and have all that you need. There is a pretty decent breakfast in the mornings and cookies & coffee in the lobby every evening. There's an affordable parking lot right behind the hotel. The hotel is old, but I personally don't care much about the looks as long as it's safe and clean. The staff was very nice. The only two things I didn't like this time was that the Internet signal was not always great, and that the AC in the room didn't work properly. The thermostat on the wall had no relation to the unit, although there was a notice on the unit stating otherwise. We had to turn the heater on and off constantly because the climate control didn't work, so it was either going to be on or off the whole night, which meant too hot or too cold. But it was alright. I guess it was just our room.

Great downtown location.

Older hotel and not as tidy as could be. Could use upgrading inside and newer amenities. Located downtown and is easy walking distance to many important areas of the city.

ummm surprise

We needed a hotel downtown and this one look quiant and eclectic on the pictures but it is old and run down and seems like most people just live here on the cheap all year. it is not really a hotel but a downtown hostel sort of place. we nearly left but stuck it out and got the heck out of there. only minutes from jfk site. spend the extra money and stay at the Hyatt across the street and feel safe its worth it.

Perfect for the Sixth Floor Museum

It was ok, as I single person I felt safe and that is very very important when you are travelling alone. The staff were very friendly, the people on the street were also very friendly, although the pictures on the website did not live up to what the Hotel actually looked like and some of the atttactions that I wanted to get to - no one seemed to i.e - getting to Southfork was a good example. But its the perfect location if you want to see the Sixth Floor Museum and close to other attractions. But overall I did have a lovely time but the Hotel could really do with some decorating - LMM.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

If you want to get to Southfork you have to Walk along South Houston Street until you get to Ross Ave and then - not sure how many blocks from there but its the Marriott Hotel on the Right hand side of Ross Ave and its the Dallas Fun Tours bus and it was diffintely worth it $65.00 including entry into the Ranch, the driver was very friendley - but the Lady giving the tour at Southfork just spoke for far too long, leaving only a very short time to actually look around Southfork before having to return.

Lovely stay!!!

I currently live in Dallas TX, but I needed to get away from things and have some me time. Overall my stay was great but what really impacted me was the older African American gentleman at the front desk on 9-16-14 working night shift. I was having a very sad day and he was so lovely and welcoming, offered me water and was just very genuine. Even in the morning he had That same smile and was just as kind. And just for him making me feel that welcome I will certainly return. Specially because I was very sad when I walked in there and it made my night.
