I couldn't travel at all as my outbound flight from Dallas kept getting delayed until it was canceled for the day. Expedia didn't take any ownership and the hotel folks also refused to refund the amount.

I will say that the room was clean. But I did not feel safe in this area, I am so sorry to say. Also, the wifi did not work which was very important to me. I get the feeling this hotel's average guest is perhaps not a traveler like me.
