This hotel was pleasantly nice and clean. The location was convenient and the service was fantastic. They accommodated my family of five and provided a rollaway bed for us. The breakfast was good and this was definitely a bargain for what you get. Highly recommend.

This hotel was a great place to stay! So clean and well kept! We had a reservation else where, but that place wasn't at all what we were expecting. The people at the front desk even helped me cancel my reservation through a booking company. They were also able to beat the price of the other hotel. We definitely would...

Everything was fantastic! The bed and pillows were VERY comfortable. It was equivalent or better than the bed at a Hilton we stayed at for a conference. The hot breakfast had variety and was really good. The manager, Peter, was so friendly and accommodating, as was the lady at the front desk in the morning. I will definitely stay here...

Quite, clean, no maids knocking early in the morning. T.V. not off to the side of the bed. Comfortable bed. We will stay there again. Didn't hear people walking down the halls or in other rooms. Staff was friendly and efficient.

But not really, there is more to say. The room was clean and well maintained. Peter checked us in and was incredibly accommodating and helpful.

We stopped here number of times while traveling through Texas. This Econo Lodge is run by the young family that pays attention to details and care. It is clean, updated, nice breakfast and most important good sleep in the quiet surroundings.
