Thank you for putting me up for four nights. I had a great stay. Room and staff were excellent. Very smooth check in and check out. No interruptions!

My Husband and and I made an emergency stop at this Holiday Inn Express when I35 turned into a sheet of ice while on our way to Ft. Worth. Then hubby came down with the flu, so we spent two nights recovering & recuperating in this clean homey Holiday Inn where the staff was friendly and helpful. The beds were heavenly! The rooms were modern and clean! The only con was loud truck noises from the interstate on our second night. I'm not sure what made that night louder than the first night, but we manged with earplugs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sascha02 Great hotel and accommodating staff
The staff is very accommodating. For a hotel adjacent to the interstate, my room was very quiet. The young lady at the front desk upon my arrival was very kind and professional.

We made the reservation while waiting to drive 1/4 mile on the icy road to the exit ramp at Alvarado. It was immediately confirmed. When we arrived, the staff was very friendly, and the beds were wonderful!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DairyCarrieCom It's an alright hotel...
I stay almost exclusively with IHG properties. They are the most consistent chain wherever I go. This hotel was different from most others. I was not greeted as a platinum member like I usual am and there was no goodie bag. Not a huge deal but it's nice gesture. I was upgraded to a suite after I asked. The suite was large and had a kitchenette. But the room was sparsely furnished and the kitchenette looked to be made out of the cheapest materials available. The room was clean and comfortable but not what I expected based on other HIEs I've stayed at.
The biggest problem came on Monday morning. This trip was a personal trip rather than business and my husband was along. We were relaxing in bed watching TV and enjoying a lazy morning when all of a sudden our door opened. The cleaning lady must have decided that we had left already. It wasn't even 9am, a full two hours before checkout. An hour later when my husband was out at the car and I had just got out of the shower, the maid again tried to come into our room. I mentioned it at the front desk when we did check out and got a quick "We'll talk to the cleaning staff".
So this hotel isn't bad so long as you keep your door latched to keep housekeeping from walking in on you and don't mind being rushed out of your room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Charlie069 Good for a town this size.
The hotel is good for a community of this size. The room was clean, and neat but very sparse in appearance. It could use a more "home" like feel. The bed was comfortable. The thing that is needed most is improvement in the internet speed. It is very slow for a business traveler. This needs to be improved as that is one thing that is very important to business travelers. The connection crashed once but came back up shortly. Overall I would stay there again if I needed to spend the night in Alvarado.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mfss Bad Internet
All the hotel has to offer is good except for the internet service. Many of us use the internet daily for personal use and work. I have stayed at this hotel 4 times and all 4 times the internet was extremely slow or down.
The coffee machine had used coffee in it. It was not cleaned.
I will not return to this facility. I will go to Burleson instead.

Spent Satuday night at the HI Express in Alvarado. We didn't want to get into either Dallas or Fort Worth because of the Texas-Oklahoma game and its associated crowds, complications, and inflation. Went to Alvarado instead. Had a great stay: nice room, decent breakfast, friendly and efficient staff.
27 miles from the HI Express in Alvarado to the Kimbell in Ft. Worth; makes an easy drive on a weekend morning.
This inn is a strategically good place to stay if you want to visit the Ft. Worth cultural district -- particularly on a weekend when traffic is light.
