The room rate was $149 (online) $199 walk-in. The hotel across the street was $129, much nicer on the outside and all of their rooms were accessible from the inside. So not worth it. All rooms are accessible from the outside. The room was clean and neat. And bed slept good.

This place is very old, run down, musty and overall poor quality. This place in need of a total remodel, Not just fresh paint. Towels and bedding smelled bad. Expected to at least smell clean. Carpet had a sticky feel to it. A/C blew a musty, dirty smell into the air. If there was a breakfast or WiFi, we were...

Don't let the age (older hotel) or location steer you away from this hotel. Although it is older and on the freeway access, they do a fine job of taking care of the property, the rooms and their guest. I stay here often because it usually is a good price for a place to sleep, quiet, clean and a very...

While visiting I felt unsafe with two kids. My room was on the backside of the hotel and at times there were people walking around with alcohol and we could smell marijuana being smoked. Also, we had trouble with our hot water- It took forever for it to get hot.

Quick access to interstate and quick check-in & out process. Breakfast was below basic (cereals, yogurt, muffin, & juice). Room carried bad odor due to carpet and wall staining. Location kinda spooky. I'd suggest you pay more to stay elsewhere.

Loved the staff that checked me in and out. I only had a few moments interaction with them, but they made me feel welcomed. The hotel room however could use a bit more of a thorough cleaning. Hair in the bathtub, thick dust on the baseboards behind the nightstand, and one of the hotel pamphlets was sticky.

The rooms are cleaner than LA Quinta on North MoPac and the staff is much friendlier; however, this isn't the safest area. With that said, there is security on site that walks the grounds ALL night, so I felt secure when someone was trying to get in my door at 3:00 a.m. They came to check on things right away,...

We stayed here for three nights with our 1.5 year old. No guest laundry available, but free baby bed. The room had a fridge and a microwave as well as free WiFi. It's a bit tricky to get there, particularly because there's another LaQuinta's the next exit of I-35 about a mile north. Even though it is surrounded by highways,...

The room was very dirty, the chairs were heavily stained (unknown substance), and the shower was either very hot or very cold. The other guests smoked inside their rooms causing odor that would penetrate into my room. The walls are very thin and you can hear conversations bleed into the room when trying to sleep. There was no security visible,...
