Stayed here for two nights in July. The hotel was a little hard to find. It is located at the back-end of a retail area, so you need to take many side streets to arrive at the location. Thankfully, their sign is super tall, so you can figure it out.
The hotel itself was nice and seemed either new or newly remodeled. My room was a standard suite format with a flatscreen TV, fridge, microwave, and cook-top. It was very clean, quiet, and comfortable. There was a decent fitness center on the first floor with a universal machine and cardio equipment…all in good condition.
Breakfast was free, but was a little hit or miss. They had scrambled eggs, bacon, oatmeal, fruit (mostly canned), breads, coffee, and juices the first morning. The second morning was the same, except no fruit and missing coffee urns. They finally re-appeared after 15 minutes. The hotel also provided a free dinner Tuesday through Thursday, but I never attended. It looked pretty decent though…burgers, spaghetti, BBQ chicken pizza, etc. A nice perk if you use it.
Overall, I thought it was a nice hotel, but nothing was outstanding to me. I guess the free dinner and free laundry room are nice perks if you use them. I’ve stayed at the Hampton and Courtyard in the same area and they are all about equal, but each has their own perks. Price or Priceline will lead me on future visits to the Brownsville area.
