Everything was great except the breakfast 1.was not enough food for guest.They ran out of many items,and guest was constinctly waiting.Eventually just went to whataburger to get breakfast on 1 day.The second day,the ham was just sitting in water and tasted very bland and was like trying to eat leather,everybody was throwing it in the trash.The sausage links were burnt up.They were burnt outside and half raw inside,not able to consume.If you are not looking to eat breakfast,this place is great.
did not get room cleaned after 1st night - when I got back to the room that night and told them about it I was given the choice of packing up and moving to another room or just getting fresh towels I chose freeah towels it was 9:00 pm and I did not feel like packing up - it was my wife and I and clothes etc for 4 days. The website looked like they had refreshed the entire hotel - it was tired looking and the mattress and pillows coould have been replaced. The breakfast was ok, but nothing like they had implied on the web. The hvac was 20 year old thru the wall unit that you have to turn off at night to get any sleep. Overall it was ok, but not what they portrayed on their web site.
Good quite location despite being close to I-10. My dog enjoyed seeing the cows grazing next door and the expansive grounds to sniff out.
This is a nice hotel but if you are at all sensitive to perfume.....don't stay here. It smells like someone went over every inch of the place with a perfume bottle. My wife and I are sensitive to smells. I was hoping the reception area was the only place that smelled but the rooms were almost as bad as the reception area. Sad because I love staying at Holiday Inn Express but obviously management at this location thought it a good idea to hose the place down with perfume. If you are a person who has some difficulty with allergies or asthma, I would not advise staying here.
I didn't expect a flat screen TV or great amenities. Did expect a clean room. There was a very dirty wash cloth that had been left hanging on the shower curtain rail. There was a dirty tissue that was on the floor and coverd by the bead spread. Once I pulled the bed spread back, it stood out like a sore thumb. Left a $5 tip and there were no surprises the second night. Left my white socks on while walking around the room at night. They were very dirty when I took them off which made me realize that the carpet was obviously full of dirt. Hallways smelled like smoke. On the positive side the towels and shower head were very nice and so was the staff. Most important thing is a clean room however and I would not stay there again.
