Because of a family situation I stayed in Monahans, at this comfortable hotel, for two mid-week nights in July of 2011. It is an all non-smoking newer facility. The rooms are large, well decorated and clean. They have a coffee maker, a microwave and a refrigerator. The bathrooms are also nice. Each room has an iron and ironing board. The included breakfast has a large variety of choices including waffles, bagels, muffins, fresh fruit, eggs, etc. The staff, while not overly friendly, are at least pleasant. The hotel has free wifi in the rooms and a small business center off the lobby with one computer. Though I did not use it the indoor pool looked nice too.
There are very few genuine negatives about this property. The television reception was not good – the rooms have HD television but do not have HD signals. The parking lot is very close to the street, so much so that your view of northbound oncoming traffic is dangerously blocked when exiting from the street on the north side of the property. The hotel has a punitive cancellation policy; if you cancel less than 72 hours of your reservation date you are charged in full. In fairness to them they do explain this over the phone but if your plans changed for some reason you will be out of luck. It was also not the quietest hotel I have ever stayed in.
Overall, however, this is a very nice place. But, it is very expensive, even for the quality of the hotel. We were given the “senior” discount – with taxes our rate for two nights in the middle of the week was almost $300 per room. Comparing the rates of other hotels in Monahans you will find high costs almost everywhere. According to the staff the hotel frequently is 100% occupied; the parking lot was packed both nights we were there. Oil field workers stay here in large numbers. If I owned this hotel and if I could keep it full at this rate I would; I understand that business is business.
Nevertheless if you are traveling down I-20 and can stay a few miles to the east you will find a large number of options in either Odessa or Midland. Because of the competition in those much larger cities you have a greater chance of finding a comparable place for a little, or even a lot, less money. In either of those cities you will also find a much larger variety of places to eat. If, however, like our family, you find that you have to stay in Monahans for some reason and if cost is not important to you, you will like this hotel. Otherwise, I would not stay in this property again.
