After checking different hotels, this one had the best price for the value. There is a divided street in front of the hotel, but you can actually get into the hotel coming from the nearby parkway as the hotel has a side entrance. Otherwise your GPS may take you around the block to approach from the North.
The room was spacious and clean. My wife grew up in Wichita Falls and remembered that the Pioneer restaurant was the only one, if not one of the few they liked to go to when she was small. So we went across the street to the original Pioneer restaurant and were extremely disappointed. They have changed owners and the food was terrible. But there are lots of other choices of good places to eat nearby. Maybe the new Pioneer owners will figure out how to go back to quality food and preparation.
Breakfast at the hotel was good the next morning and there were two women working to keep things clean and refilled. WIFI worked well in our room.
If we ever have to go back to Wichita Falls on the way to Colorado, New Mexico, or somewhere else, we'll probably stay in this hotel. But on that point, Wichita Falls is one of those places that is probably visited more by tornadoes than tourists. Wichita Falls almost seems to be dying or dead and since we had time before a funeral, we drove through most of the neighborhoods. Some that were nice neighborhoods 50 years ago are little more than slums with run-down housing.
But we recommend this hotel if you're in Wichita Falls. less

Thank you for the nice review and I am sorry for the reason you were here, funerals are hard and sometimes unexpected but it seems to be the only time everyone is together. I am glad you chose to stay with us during your time of loss and I hope we made your stay comfortable. It is hard maintaining a clean and quiet hotel while under going renovations so hopefully if traveling through Wichita Falls again you will be able to stay with us for a fun relaxing weekend! Safe travels and thank you again, we truly appreciate it!
