Recent guest reviews

We were in Fort Worth for a wedding. This hotel perfectly suited our needs. The staff were all extremely friendly. The breakfast was awesome - everything you could wish for, including eggs, waffles, fresh fruit, yogurt, oatmeal and breads. The trains were loud but they have lots of options to help with this - earplugs, sound machines, etc. The bed was extremely comfortable.

I am a Marriott Gold for the last 4-5 years, and that does not include other hotel chains where I stay due to some preferred local contracts. Probably one of the more significant things is out of their control – there is railroad not far from the property, and the train whistles woke me up every night. Now, some things that are within their control. The room felt damp. No moldy (yet), but definitely damp when walking in, which is possibly the a/c was set at mid-sixties. There is a huge gap between the entry door and the door frame on two sides (see photo), so I could hear every single person walking in the hallway. In the shower, the shower head was very low, with water hitting me chest-high when I pushed the shower head as far horizontally as it could go. The water pressure was great, but at that angle, if I did not adjust the shower head angle back down again, the water would bounce off the walls and spill on the floor. On the first night, the alarm clock was not reset from the prior customer, so that woke me a bit earlier than I intended. The iron had some parts (buttons) broken or missing. It was still working, but did not convey a good feeling about small things being taken care of.

Good hotel! Comfy beds with all amenities you need. Hotel has a great exercise swimming pool and friendly staff. Checkout is noon and you can swim until midnight. It's very close to campus ,the Kimball and several eateries Please, no worries on the trains. Book your room in back section of the hotel on floor 3 or 4. The trains sounds are soft and lullaby like. Sounds are not anything like the trains in "My Cousin Vinny"!!!

Staff was friendly but a single person on the evening shift can't handle it all by themselves. Checked into my room around 6:30 p.m., found that the TV didn't work. Notified the desk and they said would call back. An hour later I called the desk again and they had not done anything yet, citing too busy. Finally came and checked the items I had already checked - I get it, you have to follow the steps. During all of this I found that the deadbolt on the room didn't function unless you had the man of steel grip and strength. It ending up being around 8:30 before I was moved into another room with working amenities. Staff made no offers to reduce the cost of the room because of the issues and my inconvenience and did nothing but say we're sorry you had an issue. Both rooms were clean but in need of maintenance, there were several places where you could see the carpet seam had not been seamed together just laid down. Floors were uneven in the hallways, don't know if it was the pad or the actual flooring. "Free" wifi as advertised is modem/DSL speed, not a speed you can do actual work over. Pool area was clean, timer on whirlpool is broken into always on. I did not experience the train noise, but you could hear all the other activity near or above your room. Breakfast was good and area was clean. It was okay but not for the $ of the reservation. I have had similar rooms/amenities in the same areas for quite a bit less.

We stayed here a while back and it was a great one night getaway. We spent the night here and went to the museum the next day. The hotel decor was very modern and the staff was great. We would certainly stay here again!!

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!
