This is about the only hotel I will book while in Lubbock, and I'm a Hilton Diamond member. I've been here several times over the years and it's hard to beat. The area across University has been revitalized over the past few years, so the area safety has improved. Easy access to the University - 5 min car ride or 15 min walk.
The overall design is very appealing - they did a nice job. Rooms are large and updated, the beds above average and the service is excellent. Like most hotels, the breakfast is decent and the food overall is above average. Sadly, the chain restaurants nearby like "Chili's" as well as some other usual suspects are awful. Awful. So, the dining and bar options are quite nice at the Overton and you can get room service up until 1 am.
The fitness center is on par with many others. The internet is pretty good and doesn't crash when tons of people are on. Shipping items in and out of the hotel is painless, otherwise there's a FedEx close by. I will continue to stay at the Overton.}
