It was clean, quiet, safe, and had a microwave and fridge in the room. Continental breakfast includes basic cereal, toast, bagel and also could make your own waffle. The rooms are internal with a hallway. Right on I 35, frontage road....but could not hear traffic.

No carpet, no drawers and the room was absolutely filthy! There was water on the bathroom floor. When I used a towel to wipe it up I noticed the towel came away black! There was a large enough space under the door that a mouse or rat could easily get in. There was a continual motor running.
