I stayed here for a Sun-Fri visit at ACU and would definitely stay again. The room was nice-the the bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was spotless, the A/C worked perfectly (my room was on the East side of the hotel) and the staff was very friendly.
I was out of the room very early each morning, so I did not utilize the complimentary breakfast. There also appeared to be a light supper and cocktail hour each evening that was complimentary. I had events most nights so I did not need this, but it would definitely be worth looking into, if you are interested. I made a quick trip to Wal-Mart, which was close by, for some basics on the first day. So, I had what I liked and needed in the room. The kitchen area in the room was convenient. So was the bathroom/vanity space. I was traveling alone, so it didn't make a difference to me, but it is always so nice when the tub/toilet area are separate from the sink/vanity area if you are traveling as a couple or family. Additionally, the closet was mirrored which gave an extra space for someone to get ready, if needed. There was also plenty of storage space for cosmetics/toiletries, clothing and suitcases.
One of my few complaints would be the pet odor upon arrival. I am a pet lover, but don't usually travel with my dogs. There was urine in the entry one day as I was leaving. I am sure this happens on occasion, I was just surprised to see it. It was the one and only time I experienced that. Thankfully, the rooms did not have any trace of pet odor and there wasn't a problem with animals making any noise (as I've experienced in some hotels).
I noticed another reviewer commented on room noise, in general. The hotel was completely full and I was very concerned as I drove up one night and saw a bunch of kids on the basketball court. I had a room in the middle of the corridor on the second floor and only noticed my neighbors a few times. I was awake and noticed when my neighbor next door left the room one morning, and I noticed footsteps above me two different nights after I was in bed. Considering how full the hotel was, I thought this was pretty remarkable.
The shower was another thing I thought was remarkable. The water pressure wasn't the very best, but I have had much worse and the water was always hot. There were always plenty of towels and wash cloths, which was nice.
You cannot beat the proximity to ACU. On several other occasions, I have stayed close to the mall at new hotels. This was so much more convenient and cost effective, I will definitely stay here in the future.
