Very pleasant stay

We needed a quick spot for an overnight. My kids enjoyed the pool and breakfast, the beds were comfortable. While it's not fancy, the staff was very helpful and made for an enjoyable stay.

The hotel is great for the price, very clean sheets, towels, carpet, and all around. They gave us a breakfast bag, nothing good but it’s good to feel they care about it. The gentleman manager was very nice, the lady on the morning didn’t seem too happy. Comfortable bed and beddings, and the price was great!!!

I had no complaints of any kind. It was a hotel, clean & simple.

Nice clean and friendly, great place for the price.

It was ok, definitely did good for the busy weekend with the Junior Olympics teams in town.

The staff were extremely friendly and did their jobs well and with pride. It was quiet for sleeping, and the AC worked very well!

The staff was very accommodating when we arrived early. My husband said it was the best breakfast he's had compared to the hotels we've stayed at.

Had to check out at 12:45 am after we found a bed bug on my daughter's pillow. Was not charged for our stay but had to spend a lot of time and money laundering everything that entered that room and also had to deep clean my car to ensure we didn't bring any bugs home. Worst hotel experience of my life.

Good hotel. Clean and friendly staff. Great location.

Dropping off a daughter at Drake again this year. This is convenient to the highway without getting to far out. We have stayed downtown, the west side and here. My wife prefers this location and this hotel when she is driving.

I have used this hotel for over a decade. And not tons but experience the same thing each and every time I have stayed. Clean, helpful staff, and great prices. They have recently upgraded the hotel rooms which has been nice.

checked in around 9pm gentlemen was polite and was a quick check in. pool was very warm would not normally have swam but promised my son we would when we got there. Breakfast was very nice and great choices and nice eating area.

"Sorry for the mess...we're remodeling" was the sign on the door and it explains a lot. An older property (recently a different brand). Overall it was "okay". Definitely needs some help. The pool and spa were closed for the month for remodeling. The room was very plain and the bed was a little hard. The room was also not the cleanest. The price was "right". So I guess you get what you pay for - right?

I stayed for one night. My room was clean and spacious. The location was perfect, right off of I 35. For a one night stay, this is a good hotel for an ok price. The front desk attendant was receptive but overall just good, not above average. They did send an item I left in my room, immediately.

Hotel is showing age and was very noisy, I could hear the pool which they keep open until 12:00PM.

hotel is fine-- we went to see two sons in the area.

It is great to know the staff took care of you at check-in and got into in a room early. It is pleasing to know that our efforts went unnoticed by you and your husband. Thank you very much
