I stop here while traveling from time to time. the location is convenient, right off the road, plenty of parking for trucks or trailers or whatever. it is family owned, and the owners/employees are genuinely very nice people. the rooms are bigger than your average budget motel, with fridge, tv, and all the normal stuff. everything has always been clean and functioning. I haven't shopped around all that much, but I am sure this is the best deal for a hotel room in garland. very easy access to the nearby lake as well.
