Some good (actually great), but some bad...
Although the staff and breakfast were exactly what I have come to expect when staying at an HI Express, the condition of the room my past two visits in Kilgore, Texas has been less than I expected.
In one room the wallpaper was peeling or badly damaged and the bathroom sink was falling on left side (nearest the bathroom door) - had fallen approximately 3/4". That was room 228 or 230.
This past visit room 300 had exactly the same problem in the bathroom. In both rooms the carpet was stained in places and not as clean as I would have expected. [Less]
