Positive Reviews

Take A Stroll On The Walking Trail

There is a lovely trail across the road from the hotel that’s great for taking a romantic walk or participating in a bit of outdoor exercise. It adds a bit of nature to the surroundings too.

Location And Dining Choices Are Superb

Besides the decent breakfast, there are a number of good dining choices in the area. For example, there is a BBQ joint in the mall in back of the Texas Roadhouse, another great dining choice near the hotel. A Walmart is ten-minutes away by car and if you need accommodations near the university, this place will be ideal.

Pay A Modest Amount For Great Value

You will find the hotel reasonably clean and rooms spacious and modern. The pool is a nice size and there’s plenty of parking. Expect nice goodies like chocolate chip cookies at nighttime, a choice of fresh water, and a variety of mints and berries.

Negative Reviews

Wi-Fi At A Snail's Pace

There’s no need for much detail here, it’s straightforward. The Wi-Fi is slow and an Internet connection is almost impossible.

The Steep Hill In Winter

If you book the hotel during the winter months, be prepared to tackle the steep hill, which may or may not be cleared or salted and piled with

Terrible Tacky Towels

The hotel towels are tacky to say the least. There’s nothing worse than taking a shower and drying off with a towel that won’t even fit half of your body, regardless of your size! The towels are thin, rough, off-color, and more grayish than whitish.
