My husband and I felt the hotel was great and very affordable. It was very clean, checkin was easy and the people who worked there were all kind. It was surprisingly quiet too, considering it is next to the 55 fwy and near the airport. We slept easy and weren’t disturbed. We are definitely making this our go-to hotel. We had one little thing that was a bummer though - the shower curtain didn’t keep water in so water got all over the floor and we had soaked towels.

  • Liked: Staff & service

The ladies in the front desk are very nice and helpful. Did not see the housekeeper. The whole time we stayed there (4 days and 3 nights), our room did not get freshened up. Front desk said its because of Covid 19 which I am shocked to hear. I thought occupied room should have been cleaned more than normal because of Covid. Instead, its the opposite. Very disappointing.
