Economy Inn & Suites: This hotel was once an America’s Best Value Inn, and before that a Fantasy Suites, or so I’ve heard. Hopefully that description alone give you the picture, but if not, read on…or just scroll through their 2-star reviews on google.
Location: 2200 E Airport Fwy, Irving, TX 75062
Our Overall Rating: 1/5
These Fantasy Suites were surely on their last legs. Like…I was surprised they were still renting this one out! Truly felt like an abandoned room. It was so sad! Such a cool design but no one has kept up with this room. The sights sounds and smells were all bad news lol. The good news is, they do give you like 10 minutes to decide to change rooms, or maybe get a refund, but they weren’t especially friendly so maybe don’t risk it if you’re not willing to stay! We got to peek inside one of their Roman rooms and it’s possible it’s in better shape? But we didn’t go inside so hard to say. Either way – this is one of the many Fantasy Suite hotels that was probably born in the late 80s or early 90s but apparently didn’t have the best of luck.
Cleanliness Rating: 1/5
No cleanliness to speak of! No really, we never see rooms like this, and we see a lot! Still very cool but even the car kinda looked like it had been in a minor accident somehow…while inside lol
Favorite Room: Still a sucker for the 50s theme rooms despite the sad state!
Booking Info: We booked online but also called to make sure we got the room.
