Bottom Line

This mid-range hotel from the Holiday Inn chain offers 116 clean and spacious guest rooms and a solid set of features that add value to a stay here -- but there's not much in the area and it's over a 10-minute drive to the Texas A&M University campus. The hotel has a restaurant that's open for breakfast (not included in rates) and dinner, a small shop, and business facilities, as well as wellness facilities like an indoor pool, hot tub, and a small fitness room. Guest rooms come equipped with flat-screen TVs, Keurig coffee machines, microwaves, and mini-fridges, while suites add living rooms with sofa beds and some whirlpool tubs. For something with a better location that's within walking distance of dining options and the university, check out Hyatt Place College Station.

Oyster Hotel Review

Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Aggieland

Hotel Class:Mid-Range

Scene

Mid-range chain hotel with predictable, but clean and pleasant, interiors

This mid-range hotel from the Holiday Inn chain makes for a clean and pleasant base. Decor is typical chain fare, but common spaces feel fresh and inviting. Gray sofas and armchairs offer seating in the sunny lobby in front of a large TV, while colorful accents like striped pillows and a patterned rug add a dose of pep and style to the space. There's a restaurant further in with a variety of seating, including booths, high tables, and a bar. Most guests staying here tend to be visitors of Texas A&M University or business travelers.

Location

Need a car to get around; about a 10-minute drive to city center and Texas A&M University

The hotel's location is a bit inconvenient, especially for travelers without cars. There's not much in the immediate area beyond another similar hotel, but the city center, with restaurants, bars, and shops, can be reached in about 10 minutes by car. The main destination here is the the Texas A&M University campus, which is about an 11-minute drive. It's home to the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, which is about 13 minutes away. The Sanders Corps of Cadets Center can be reached in 10 minutes. Other area attractions include the Museum of American GI (10-minute drive) and the J Wayne Stark University Center Gallery (13-minute drive). Easterwood Airport is about 15 minutes away.

Rooms

Spacious rooms have flat-screen TVs, Keurig coffee machines, mini-fridges, and microwaves

Rooms here are typically chainlike in terms of decor, which is pleasantly forgettable with its brown and gray color scheme, but the spaces are clean and fairly spacious. Splashes of color courtesy of abstract paintings or bits of red carpet design perk up the monotone scene a bit. Beds are framed by padded brown headboards and topped with white linens. All rooms have work desks with ergonomic chairs, as well as armchairs providing additional seating. Suites have separate living areas with sofas beds. Suites also have wet bars, while the Jacuzzi Bridal Suites have whirlpool tubs in the bedrooms. Standard amenities include flat-screen TVs, Keurig coffee machines, mini-fridges, microwaves, and free Wi-Fi. Bathrooms are clean and fairly standard, with shower/tub combos and granite-topped wooden sink vanities. Wall-mounted hairdryers and toiletries are supplied.

Features

Indoor pool, fitness room, restaurant, business facilities, and a small shop

A handful of features add value to a stay here. One of the biggest perks is a small indoor pool and a hot tub. Other wellness facilities include a fitness room that offers a small amount of Precor machines (treadmill, elliptical trainer, fitness bike, and strength-training machine) as well as free weights. There's a restaurant/bar on-site that's open for breakfast (for an extra fee) and dinner, plus cocktails. The hotel also has a small shop in the lobby selling snacks, drinks, and sundries. Business facilities include three meeting rooms and a 24/7 business center with computers and a printer, plus there's free Wi-Fi throughout the property.
