    An older hotel that appears to have been updated years ago, but has seen some tough days. Staff and location were good for our needs. Large youth sports presence during our stay with kids running up and down the halls. Couldn’t hear them after we fell asleep. We’ll go elsewhere next time, but it may work for your needs.

    Great clean, quiet hotel. No hot tub.

    Good stop for road trippers
    Very easy to get to hotel from I-35. Comfortable and relatively spacious room. Good breakfast options. H.E. Exp is a solid brand -- you know what you're going to get. It's not the cheapest hotel chain but the extra $20 or so dollars over the budget brands does get you a nicer stay.

    Met our needs perfectly!
    Stayed there over the Christmas holiday because there were too many people for our parents house. Service was wonderful! Friendly customer service and very good breakfast selection.
