The hotel is nice, wellkept, clean. Breakfast food fine. But the lighting in the bathroom? YIKES! It's like trying to put on makeup in the BAT Cave. And the meeting room lights did not work. The hotel did send a worker in to try to fix it, but they couldn't get it working. Meeting was a little dark :/

Outstanding employees. Meeting group not enough chairs, lighting problems, microphone problems, only one elevator for returning to room during meeting break. 15 minute drive to Temple for assorted restaurants. On the highway but quiet. Told at check in the water pipes had a leak and no water from noon until 5 pm. Not for groups unless u have a guarantee they will not put other groups in the breakfast room. 2 groups in addition to ours. In breakfast room one singing group with a curtain separating them from a men's group.

Even though this property is right in I-35, if you have a room on the east (back) side of the hotel, it's very quiet. The pool courtyard is very pretty and one of the nicest pool/patio areas at any HIE I've stayed at.
It's kind of in the middle of nowhere, but Belton, TX is just up the road and there are several very nice restaurants, including Gin at Nolan Creek.
The rooms are spacious and very clean.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the East side.

We stayed at this HIE as part of a group attending a nearby wedding. The hotel is nice and new. The breakfast was great. The rooms were great. And if that was all we experienced, I might have giving 5/5 starts. The big let down was the pool area. Granted, it is nice to have a pool area and this one was pretty good. The pool & pool deck looked beautiful but therein lies the problem. The concrete deck was finished with stamped and stained concrete making it dangerously slick. (And dangerously hot. Although I'm not sure what can be done about the heat other than using a lighter color that won't get as hot. But we're in Texas so be prepared.) But the slickness of the concrete deck is really unacceptable. I'm not saying you shouldn't stay here because of it, just be careful. And the pool could have been a bit larger considering the size of the hotel and the size of the area it was put in. It just seemed it was designed for aesthetics and not practicality.

Room Tip: If you need a little more room ask for a suite. It has a second room for TV watching or more work s...

This is a very clean and safe hotel. A bit high for what you get but the rooms are clean and pleasant. There are no restaurants in walking distance but you will have a car if you are there. The workout area is lame but the free breakfast is nice for a quick exit. The best place to stay in Salado.

We had a family reunion at this property and the staff was wonderful. From the time we started planning in March, until the last of our group checked out they made every effort to accommodate our group of 58. The rooms were clean, the breakfast room well stocked and the pool refreshing.

nice inn just off interstate in Salado, Tx about 400 yards of hiway so you don't hear any traffic noise. Average breakfast typical of HI inns. Very nice patio pool outside area that is shaded from the sun in afternoon. Kids will love it. Nice rooms. Great AC for the hot TX days. One problem is the noisy doors that bang shut day and nite. Large parking lot.

Room Tip: get room on interstate side to avoid hot Tx sun
