TravelPod Member ReviewsArbor Inn And Suites Lubbock
We had high hopes for this place - it looked great on the internet. The front desk person and the manager were very helpful - I had screwed up the date, so they worked it out. A large suite, clean, but probably needs a "sprucing up" to compete with the chain suite hotels surrounding it. The internet was awful. Very slow, and the desk said "nothing wrong with hers". Not bad, but nothing special either.

Historical Traveler Reviews Arbor Inn And Suites Lubbock
Great hotel for little $$$
After reading all the positive reviews of Arbor Inn and Suites, my husband and I decided to stay there, since we were in town for a funeral.
Everything you read in the previous reviews is correct----the rooms are large, the staff is very friendly, and the place is spotless.
Decent continental breakfast selection (w/ those Texas-shaped waffles!) and tasty happy hour food.
It was a little tricky to get to, due to construction on the Marsha Sharp Freeway.
I would agree w/ the person who wrote in about the fact that the walls are very thin. They seem to be just drywall w/ no insulation. Unfortunately for us, the person above us seemed to be practicing marching band routines until about midnight. I should have remembered the advice to book a room on the top floor!
For the price, it was the best deal going. I would highly recommend it for business travelers or anyone on a budget--just get a room on the top floor. We would stay here again.
Home Away From Home
Our All Star Baseball Team (El Paso) and their families stayed at the Arbor Inn & Suites. We enjoyed the spacious rooms which were extremely clean and well decorated. The pool is gorgeous and was so much fun for the boys and their parents. The staff was courteous and helpful going above and beyond. A nice breakfast too. It is the best hotel for the price in Lubbock bar none.
Exceptional Value and Staff
The best hotel I've stayed in of last 30 hotels visited. A terrific value. Make reservations early as this is a popular hotel. Room was very large and comfortable. On the evening we stayed, staff put on nice cook-out meal. Free beer and wine from 5-7 pm. Outstanding to relax by gorgeously landscaped pool. The only knock I have are the super turbo compression toilets - a bit like a small water cannon going off. Would recommend top floor to avoid flushing noise below.
The Arbor Inn & Suites met all of our criteria for a great hotel experience . The Arbor was very clean and quiet with very large rooms, good breakfast, helpful staff.
I have now discovered a wonderful place to stay while conducting business in Lubbock. I have found that the Arbor Inn & Suites is above average in cleanliness, amenities, convenience in location, roominess, quietness, aesthetics, and personalism. I travel to Lubbock 2 to 3 times a month and the Arbor Inn meets & surpasses all my business and personal needs. This is a great place for families too, with a beautiful outside pool area. The breakfast choice is limited but who cares with everything else this hotel & manager/owner has to offer.
Beautiful property excellent staff
I am setting in the living room of our suite writing this review as we speak using the free highspeed internet that is available wirelessly throughout the hotel. The property is brand new and the rooms are impeccable. Very nicely furnished, Thomasville furniture with brushed nickle fixtures, wrought iron lamp stands, granite counter tops, two 25"-27" TVs with DVD players, large shower, tile floors, free highspeed internet (wireless and hard wire LAN connection), and an independent digital thermostat for the room. The suite has a full kitchen with fullsized refrigerator, microwave, range, etc. The hotel has a conference room and a workout room.
The pool is closed but it is a beautiful outdoor pool with waterfall and plenty of tables and chairs around.
Breakfast was wonderful. A large fair of fruit, cereal, bagels, juice, yogurt, biscuits and gravy, and my personal favorite Belgium waffles you make yourself that come out of the griddle in the shape of Texas!!!!!
The staff is extremely courteous and helpful.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone, wish we could have brought the kids!
Great place to stay while in Lubbock
Stayed four nights while in Lubbock. The room was a standard room but very nice. (2) beds, refrigerator, micro-wave, high speed internet, wondeful bath area. Very clean, new hotel ----- great service. They have a washer and dryer on each floor for guest use. It was wonderful (much above average) and I highly recommend it.
Loved it in Lubbock
We stayed a week in Oct '05 at this fantastic new suites hotel in SW Lubbock. We found the owner and each of his staff to be very friendly and accomodating. We had a one bedroom suite, which was very roomy and nicely appointed with DVD players, granite counters and Bath and Body Works soaps & shampoos. Our balcony had a lovely view of the beautifully landscaped pool area. The breakfast offered cream cheese and yogurt for those that need protein, but we hardboiled eggs in our room too. They serve Texas shaped belgian waffles, yummy. The business center offered high speed access when our antiquated computer didn't work in our room. We enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings. Great place to stay. Everything is done top notch.
Wonderful kid friendly hotel
Brand new hotel. Easily the nicest "suite hotel" I have ever seen. The room had a king bed in a separate room with a huge bathroom. The living area had a fold out couch and a bar sitting area around the kitchen (nice eating area for the kids). The kitchen had a full size fridge, dishwasher, small range, and large microwave. Bathroom and kitchen had granite countertops, and each room had a large tv with its own DVD player. Free laundry facilities down the hall. The outdoor pool has a graduated entry (from zero depth to about three feet) and several fountains and water falls. My kids loved it -- very family friendly.
Great, newer hotel in Lubbock
We stayed at the Arbor Inn and Suites on 2 separate occasions in June of 2005. Although current construction in this area of Lubbock makes access difficult, it won't be long before this problem is resolved. The rooms with 2 queen beds are very large with closet, frig, microwave, TV in cabinet, vanity area outside the bathroom, desk and couch with pull out sofa. Our family of four slept very comfortably thanks to central a/c controlled with an electronic thermostat. The pool was nice but the hot tub was cold, likely due to several small children going from pool to hot tub and back frequently. The continental breakfast was filled with coffee, juices, bagels, muffins, bread for toasting, cereal, oatmeal, fresh fruit and waffles. The staff was very courteous and friendly. The only problem we encountered was an elevator that was quite slow, even to the point of giving the feeling that it might not open or reach the desired floor. Overall our stay was very enjoyable and we plan to stay there again in the future.

Well, this is it. I am getting on the plane tomorrow to start my time with ISV. All I know up to this point on where I will be is my first two weeks of training. That will take place in Big Bear, CA, where the high is 78 and the low is 39. Just the thought of getting out of Texas (or satan's ********** some might say) is nothing short of a miracle. This place truly is terrible in ...
Monday July 20 - Day 7
Breakfast in Colorado. Lunch in New Mexico. Supper in Texas. What a day! We left our campsite at a good time, just before 9:00 we were on the road. However, there were still some long steep hills we had to climb that slowed us down.
Once we crossed into New Mexico we went off the interstate a bit to visit a dormant volcano - ...
I've been feeling inspired by Jack Kerouac and getting out on the open road with as much spontaneity as possible, of course Cristina not so please about lack of reservations and my idea of "winging it". Nonetheless we made it out of Austin and headed West.
Our original itinerary Austin thru Lubbock into Santa Fe then Salt Lake City, Reno and either San Francisco or L.A. ...
... World War I started here. Modern terrorism and ethnic cleansing find their roots here. It's a wonderfully complex place that is not easy to understand. On a personal note, the Balkans have always haunted me. I grew up on a ranch in the heart of rural Texas. Everyone was the same--white, middle class, conservative, and Baptist. When I was in junior high, I distinctly remember watching the news reports as the Balkans fell apart. ...
