Lost power in the morning on a snowy day mak8mg it very cold inside and uncomfortable. Could not see in the bathroom and very few aminities were available. The toilet had urine stains all around the seat. The neighbors were very loud the night before through 2 AM despite being told to calm down. I want a refund.

Good people - bad facility
The front desk staff was very nice and friendly. It was 90 degrees that day and no one turned on the. Air conditioner or the fridge before we arrived. Took at least an hour before we could stand to be in that room after driving for 12 hours. The only light switch turned on light in the kitchenette as well as the bathroom. If you didn't want to wake your partner who was sleeping, you had to use Braille to find the toilet! Very disappointing. I figured you get what you pay for; until we stayed at the next hotel last night. Big Chili Inn $65 - Quality Inn in Canton, Texas $67- so price must not be a factor.

Lobby closes at 11pm, no night service. I was not informed of this at all, it was not stated, and no one called, and I didn’t arrive until midnight. There was no one there. Basically paid for a room I never got to stay in.

Was looking for kitsch found nothing but sketch.
Wish we would’ve stayed in El Paso. Room at least had clean sheets atop threadbare mattresses. Curtains were missing and the toilet ran all night. This place also has long term rates if that tells you anything. Neighborhood was sketch and did not feel comfortable parking in area.

Hotel Hell
Rooms were stuffy, no curtains in windows only a busted venitien blind; sandals from a previous traveler left in the room; no soap; location is in the midst of drugs and prostitutes; pet friendly is why I stayed yet pet friendly to them means pets allowed. No very happy that I was charged a lot of money for two rooms nor am I pleased that Travelocity charged o top of that!😡

Scary at night in this part of town
Check in was great and the ladies at the desk were wonderful. The pool area and koi pond were beautiful. That's about where the good part ends. We were in town for a baseball tournament and this hotel is a very short drive from the field of dreams. Thought it would be perfect....... Until we came back after a game at 11:00. Wow, there were not so nice people all over the front lot conducting who knows what kind of business. And they definitely were not interested in me being there. This hotel was crawling with unsavory characters. We left after the first night because I was afraid that our car would be broken into and we just didn't feel safe.
