We stayed there one night. The Clerk was cheery and all. We asked for the aarp price but she did better...we got one night for $55! They have a lot of rooms but not many folks staying there. I would guess maybe 10 or so folks and 45+ rooms. Our room was ok. It was clean. We had to plug in the fridge to get it going and it did work fine. There was a guy in the next room talking on the phone. We could hear the whole conversation. Yes, very thin walls. The room had single pane windows which could be a real problem in extreme temps and Texas does get HOT! The room had tile floors too, no carpet...none. Other wise we had no issues at all. The breakfast was passable, average, acceptable continental type. There is a gas station and a Mickey D very nearby and it is pretty easy on and off the I-35.
What frosted me was we rented a really nice room at a Holiday Inn express in Port Aransas for $88 and it is in easy walking distance to the beach and downtown. But we needed the room on Belton as we had done over 700 miles that day and were beat.
