I actually enjoyed my stay in this hotel and it was really close to everything in Fort Worth. The only downside was its closeness to a train yard that gave me a very long lullaby of train whistles at 2am. If you do stay here, try and get a room on the backside of the hotel.

We have stayed here several times and on two occasions we extended our stay because of the great staff, very nice room, and wonderful breakfasts. We are staying there again this year in July and will continue to book it each time we are in the area Added bonus is the restaurant across the parking lot.....Pancake House, not just for breakfast but serves great lunches besides breakfast foods.

I found this hotel to be super clean and nice, at a very good price. The bed was super comfortable, bathroom clean and new, carpet clean, no unusual smells. Breakfast was fresh and hot. I didn't try the hot tub, but the pool area was clean and new. The only issue with this hotel is that it's right next to a train line that runs at night. I slept just fine, but the trains are always there and very active. The air conditioner was loud enough to drown out most of the train activity. I didn't think that the trains were bad enough to deter from the value.

We stayed in the king suite w/ a sofa bed.The bed was very uncomfortable.Our phone didn't work.Our room was clean and the breakfast was good.Not what I expected but was ok for 1 night.The pool and jacuzzi was good for the kids.

Pros: I reserved it through Marriott and they had special deal while visiting college. TCU was less than 10 mins away. Also the stockyard was about 15? still close by for a visit while we were in town. I did see the zoo when we were driving towards the school so that's not far either right off the highway but my bad night vision made me miss it the first time I got there but after I found it, it was easy enough to find after that warm cookies! we got a welcome bag when we checked in, granola bar and water....can't remember what else but that was nice. Should have asked for an extra bottle since there were 2 of us. earbuds available 'cause of the train but it actually never bothered us. I read other reviews noting they have a white noise machine so that's cool if you need it. Macaroni Grill and a Wafflehouse in walking distance. There were few other fast food places across the road but didn't go there. oh and the front desk has a list of nearby restaurants if you want to see what else is around. Breakfast every morning! hot and cold items. Scrambled eggs, turkey or pork sausage. Texas shape waffles! cereal, fruit, bread, bagels, some pastries. coffee, tea, juice, milk and soy milk! Room has refrigerator and microwave. Everything was clean, it was comfortable. plenty of room. coffee machine in the room too. Shower had good pressure. usual marriott toiletries. Staff were all very pleasant, friendly and helpful! Plenty of parking. Decent gym, laundry services if needed. Cons: nothing much really so I'm nitpicking here about the breakfast. I wanted some muffins but they didn't have any. Bathroom is slightly old and I think someone was trying to install/glue some soap trays in the corner of the shower...a really bad job....caulk everywhere and not cleaned up. might want to clean that up a bit Elevator also bit old and small but it was functional. If anyone read my other hotel reviews, I have a thing about elevators in hotels. They have to be quick. Standing waiting for an elevator while the line builds up is not very efficient or does it make a guest very happy. This elevator was fine but it was slow. I took the stairs most of the time except for check in and check in since we had suitcases but it came in decent time. overall it was a great stay!

The hotel staff are extremely friendly and polite. They go the extra mile to assist and always have a smile on their face. They gym is fair, relaxed for a good 15 minutes in hot tub and had a swim in the pool which was great. Room quality is good, coffeemakers, good beds. Internet connection was fair and free. Location is also quite good, will only take you about 8-10 minutes by car to get to the city center which has a lot to offer in terms of shops, bars and restaurants. The only thing bad about this hotel is the freight train that passes it during the night and blows the horn. It woke me up every night around 2 AM ish. The hotel is aware of it and does offer ways to minimize the noise.

The room quality and cleanliness and the staff were great with no negatives. Parking was ample. It is located on the same street as many cultural museums which was my own reason for selecting this place. The continental breakfast offered many alternatives to satisfy one's appetite. There is a Macaroni Grill restaurant and a 24/7 pancake house right across the parking lot so there is no need to get into one's car to go and eat. Some commentators have mentioned the railroad tracks close by but the trains rolling by did not impact me or my ability to sleep even though I was overlooking them on the third floor, perhaps because there is good sound proofing. The next time I am visiting the museums here I will certainly again stay at this inn.

Went to Dallas/Fort Worth to visit my boyfriend for two days everything was very pleasant room was clean and spacious. Staff were super nice! Only thing was the noise of the trains at night when I was trying to sleep but it wasn't much of a big deal!!! Its super convenient location wise to! Close to the zoo which was number 1 on my activities list!! Definitely will stay again next time in in the Dallas/Fort Worth area

I stayed 3 nights here while in town for work. It was a nice hotel, and had a really good breakfast. The room was nice, nothing spectacular, but it did the job. Comfortable beds, but the walls and ceiling were pretty thin. I could hear the people walking in the room above me, which actually woke me up a couple of times. Good location, right off I-30 and next to Trinity park and the zoo. Good for the price, I'd probably stay there again.

We were only in town for 1 night and stayed at the Fairfield Inn on University to be close to the TCU stadium. It was very clean and staff was very nice upon check in and as we went in and out. We did enjoy the breakfast provided and the young man supervising breakfast was very friendly and helpful. Overall an enjoyable stay that I would recommend and stay there again.
