We only stayed one night, so, I'm not sure how we would have felt after multiple days. Overall, the hotel was fine and it served it's purpose. Everything was as described and the location was good for what we wanted to do in Dallas.

Good Hotel in a lousy area

As an international guest I booked the hotel online based on its distance from the Dallas Convention Centre. After reading the review I thought that it would be easily accessible to Downtown Dallas, through public transportation but it wasn't and I hadn't made arrangements for a rental. In addition the location is lousy, its some distance from a residential area but its very bare, no stores, no nothing only a seven eleven and a Denny's approx a mile up the road. In terms of dining, its also some distance away, there is no dining area within walking distance (except the Dennys). However the hotel itself is quiet, rooms were big enough and comfortable and the staff were very friendly and assisted with calling cabs and other information. If you are on the go on business and on a short visit to Dallas I would recommend it.

Just adequate

Me and my wife were in Dallas for a few days doing our holiday shopping and decided to stay at this hotel because we always had a good experience with Holiday Inn. We stayed at this place for 3 nights and here are our observations: The room we stayed in was a little small and the AC unit located under the window was a little noisy. Our room was adjacent to the laundry room and from time to time we heard Mexican music blasting through the walls. Breakfast was a disappointment with very few choices. Forget about fruits or sausage, seriously. We never felt safe in this neighborhood with broken beer bottles scattered along the road and shoddy cars driving around. The swimming pool and a hot tub were ok just the water in the pool was very cloudy which signals a lack of proper maintenance. Overall - Not up to Holiday Inn standards.

Great location, good beds, weird staff

The room was clean, though the carpet was severely stained. One of the ladies at the front desk was very odd and very rude. She told my beautiful, 69 year old mother, "Your clothes are so cute, you'd never know you are 80 years old." She didn't seem to be kidding, just very weird. The same front lady gave me horrendous directions that I fortunately knew enough not to follow. Overall, I'd stay here again.
