        Was only 15 minute walk from Sixth Street district

        Firstly, staff informed us when we checked in that if we stayed another the night the rates would go up by more than 50%, was not a weekend but we were told 'the game' was on the next night as justification for their blatant profiteering. We thought we'd check the room first before committing to another night ... The walls were paper thin, neighbors on both sides decided to take showers at 12am and 1am respectively. The bathroom was a disgrace, could manage lukewarm water only, was big clumps of hair on the bathroom floor. Decided to move to the other Super 8 up the road which hadn't put it rates up for the next night, and the experience was 100% better. Avoid this motel

        It was close to downtown and had free parking. It also had a continental breakfast, which was limited but nice to be offered.

        The cleanliness of the room was average at best. Even though it was a 3 queen room, space was extremely limited. This was simply a place to sleep for a few hours after an eventful night on the town.

        Location was only five minutes drive from downtown. Price was good. Desk employees were friendly.

        Lack of towels. We had 4 people in our room yet there were only 3 towels. I went to the desk for more and they didn't have any clean ones.

        It was close to downtown.

        The rooms were pretty run down and dirty. The staff would not let us park there before checking in a few hours later and they would only give one parking pass per room. Our room was a triple that held 6 people so we had two cars. The second car had to be parked downtown in a parking garage overnight. The doors to the office for breakfast were still locked 30 minutes after breakfast was supposed to start.

        Had some problem with the door lock at first, waited for almost 5 hours in the room for them to fix it cuz the front desk guy told us that they were out of rooms, but after they realized that it couldnt be fixed, they told us that they got "approved" to let us moved in another room which was available... it would be fine if they just let us moved into another room at first, but sadly they did not and no one apologized about it, not even the girl in the front desk.

        The location is good. About 20 minutes walk from 6th Street. Just off the I-35 and free parking. The rooms are OK but a little tired but they sleep 4 so good for those travelling on a budget. The female receptionist working on Saturday evening was friendly and efficient.

        The male receptionist. (Saturday afternoon / Sunday morning). Unfriendly Unhelpful Unresponsive When confronted with him on our arrival I fest like saying stuff it we'll go elsewhere. On Sunday morning the same man was on duty. There was no coffee, no juice, no milk. He was told a dozen times and either ignored the people completely or just repeated what they said but did absolutely nothing about it. The man was a disgrace and if I had been a Super 8 mystery guest I would be recommending a reprimand for him at the very least.

        That is was such a convenient location for 6th st and taxi's were readily available and resonable. Also very easy to find as it is just off the interstate.

      • Group of friends
        6.6

        The room was clean and reasonable size ..... we got the triple room with three bed for 4 people and it was comfortable...... 15 minute walk from 6th street which is an awesome place to go party.

        It you check out a little late they will charge you so make sure you wake up and check out on time,

        Cost and location for one night stay before leaving for the airport. Staff was friendly and accommodating.

        Location is 5-10 mins walk to 6th street where all the fun is)

        Rooms are old and furniture is worn out and make looks like its not that clean inside. A/c was very loud!

        I loved the convient location! It was perfect for walking or cheap cab rides to most of the major attractions in Brownsville. Our stay was unbelievably cheap and the value was just great! I recommend this to anyone looking for comfort on a budget!

        While driving to the hotel I called to get directions: The person who answered the phone refused to give me directions until I had given him my reservation info. Once I arrived, I found the office vacant and another couple ahead of me in line to check in. Once checked in, I found the room to be sweltering hot: a second floor room in a texas hotel in june with the ac off. Finally, I discovered the hot water was apparently heated by friction: 10 minutes before any warm water hit my shower after turning it on.

        The Location was its only positive.

        We had Bed Bugs in our room and when we went to tell the manager he was very rude and dismissive. They changed our room reluctantly.We also heard him on the phone to other clients and he was very rude.
