Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

The location is ideal. Short 10 min drive to downtown. Access on and off 35 is quick. If you have to go to the store avoid the Walmart on Norwood Park. Hotel is updating so I do not know the end product, or what is new and what is old. So it is hard to criticize. The weightroom machines definitely...

Our room was very nice. It was clean & spacious. Much better than the small room at a HIE we had stayed at a few days earlier in San Antonio. It was easy to drive into the downtown, once we figured out that frontage road runs parallel to I-35. When we arrived we had a hard time finding the hotel....

Oralia L waited on us. Outstanding service. The place was packed yet she managed to provide excellent service. Very friendly and efficient. Highly recommend. The omelet was delish. The atmosphere is nice. There are2 big-screen tvs so you can watch the news as you eat.

Paid less than $100 a night for a well located hotel. Stayed here before and it has been updated since. Staff was helpful and courteous. Breakfast was good since it was included, but nothing special. Good business hotel.

I travel 1-2 weeks per month, and almost always stay at HIE. We came to visit our son, he's a student. We left it he morning of first day and when we returned our room was not cleaned, so we advised the front desk. They said the cleaning crew had left and they could bring us clean towels and toiletries....

They were in the process of renovating the hotel, hopefully when it completes the hotel will feel a little newer. The rooms had a slight old smell. Beds were not very comfortable, both beds in the room were pretty sunken in at the middle. Everything did feel clean and safe. For the price, I would have hoped for more, but...
