Photo Review of Marriott Town Place Suites McKinney Texas

Nothing too surprising to report at this typical Townplace Suites. I enjoy this Marriott brand as the hotels are laid out nice and fit my travel needs well. I wish they could redesign the weird closets at these hotels but I “get” the purpose for extended stay folks. This location has somewhat small TVs and lacks the Netflix internet TV option. Other than that the service was great and spotlessly clean. This hotel is well located for runners with good sidewalks and trails not far away. Also near shopping and restaurants. I’d stay here again for sure.

Holiday Inn Express Early Texas Photo Review

The HIX in Early Texas is a new, nice hotel with great staff. 6am breakfast, 24 hour large fitness center with excellent equipment and a nice outdoor pool cap off an excellent experience. Although the somewhat thin wall construction next to a busy road subtract some this is likely the best hotel within an hour or more in any direction. I will also note that Verizon has terrible coverage in this town. The free WiFi helped a ton on this stay.

Springhill Suites Tulsa Hills Photo Review

Nothing bad to say about a spotless, new, well located hotel with good service. Good breakfast. Nice indoor pool and fitness room.

TVs are good but do lack the Netflix streaming feature of some new Marriott properties. Not a huge issue. Hard to find anything bad to say. This new property is very nice and located near shopping and restaurants.

Hotel Photo Review – Marriott Courtyard Springfield Missouri Airport

The last time I stayed at this property Dick Cheney was VP. I know this because he was staying here at the same time on a campaign stop. I also remember this because when I checked in the front desk gave me the wrong key and I walked in on a secret service agent in his room, yikes.

Anyway this hotel has aged well. It’s one of the designs that has a small atrium in the lobby. It has a restaurant in the parking lot but is equipped with the Hyatt Place style bistro for breakfast, evening drinks and food. I like this but still feel that not having free breakfast,, even for elites, has long hampered Courtyard business traveler business. Sure many can expense this cost anyway but it is just more complicated than being able to grab a quick coffee or breakfast on the way out the door for most roadwarriors.

This hotel has a small in door pool, decent fitness room and clean rooms. I find the bathrooms a bit dated but spotless. This property is right off I-44 and near the Springfield Regional Airport. They have shuttle but a cab might be worth it to save time.

Photo Review Marriott Town Place Suites Hays Kansas

Decent, new, clean, great service, great roadside location right on I-70. Near shopping, restaurants and other services. The perfect hotel if…they could fix two things. 1. Fix water pressure in the showers, I’ve seen drinking fountains with better water flow (suspect it’s the crappy shower heads). 2. Start breakfast at 6am if not earlier. This is a hotel in Western Kansas on I-70 many people need to hit the road earlier than 6:30.

Photo Review Holiday Inn Express Dumas Texas

Quick overnight in Dumas Texas resulted in a stay at the local HIX. Not the newest in the chain but clean and f

airly typical except the upscale cinnamon rolls. Also one of the biggest indoor swimming pools I’ve see. At a chain hotel in a long time.

Photo review Wyndham Microtel San Antonio airport

Recently visited the Microtel San Antonio San Pedro near the airport. Decent hotel, good location just off the highway and friendly staff. No fitness room but nice pool, free breakfast and clean up to date rooms.
