I am a lover of hotels. And by that I don't mean I'm a connoisseur, an expert on hotel-spitality. Rather, I just enjoy staying in a place that is not home and is not my mother-in-law's. So since I consider staying at a hotel a treat, the question I hold in the fore when I'm assessing hotels for Yelp is, "How much of a treat was this place?" The answer at the Springhill Suites in Arlington was: Pretty nice little treat. Sure, the suites were dated, but they were clean and the furniture was in good shape. The king sized bed was comfortable and the bathroom was plenty big with a vanity outside (which keeps marriages in tact). The continental breakfast was the icing. It was quality! Eggs and bacon, a fridge full of containers of milk and yogurt (perfect if you're on the run w/ the kiddies), good cereals (read: like granola, not just sugar puffball medley), and an oatmeal bar. The staff was good, the location was prime, and the price was just nice. I would recommend the suites to anyone, particularly those traveling with a small family.

I enjoyed my stay at Springhill - room was not huge but was clean and comfortable. Having paid twice as much down the road at the HGI, I was happy with the value for my money here. I can imagine that it might not be a good choice in the summer when 6 Flags is open as I expect the place is probably packed with familes but in the winter for a business traveler, this fit the bill!

We have stayed here twice. No problems the first time. The second time, a very nice employee opened the side door for us since we didn't have a key yet (I was impressed!); but as soon as we got to the desk to check in, the lady gave my husband attitude, and there went their review. Her boss didn't say a word either (she was standing right there), and let her talk to him that way. The rooms are clean but way overpriced at $169 for a regular room for one night (I guess since it's close to Cowboy Stadium, etc, they charge more). The crappy attitude wasn't necessary, either. We won't be back.

This is the second time I've stayed at Springhill Suites. They are doing a good job. Since my first visit they have totally renovated the place as well as added an elevator. The rooms are nice and clean. The front desk was very nice and helped me work through some reservation snafus making my overall business trip easy and uneventful.

If you're ever stuck in Arlington, TX for work, good luck to you. The real life Arlington is just about as lame as King of the Hill has made it out to be in animated form for years.
The only possible upside to this hotel's crappy location is that Six Flags over Texas is literally across the street. Throw a rock and you'll hit the ticket booths. Unfortunately it was closed when I went. I stared longingly from my window and then watched crappy cable TV while I counted down the days and hours to getting the hell out of Arlington.

We stayed here overnight while in town to see a concert at the Verizon theatre in Grand Prairie. It was a short, easy drive from the theatre. I'm glad I got the room for really cheap on Priceline. It wasn't bad, but wasn't great. Service was excellent, but the room had a stale smell and something about it flared up our sinuses.

Not a bad place to spend a few days. The suites a big and clean - we had a nice LCD tv on a swivel mount so you could see it in the sleeping or living area, a desk, couch, fridge, microwave, etc. The room was clean, the staff was friendly, and the morning breakfast was pretty good.
However, it wasn't perfect. For starters, everything in the room was VERY loud - both the HVAC unit and the fridge were extremely noisy. Also, being positioned directly over the lobby, we had spotlights pointing directly at our room, which was not only uncomfortable to look at, it completely ruined the view of the stadiums/six flags. Finally, the bathroom layout was incredibly awkward.
Overall I enjoyed staying at this hotel, but it was not without its issues.

***This SpringHill Suites is woefully outdated and its location is not as convenient as it should be; it is near Dallas Cowboys Stadium and The Ballpark at Arlington (Texas Rangers), but neither are within walking distance; the room rates are reasonable though***
This SpringHill Suites is located near the Dallas Cowboys Stadium, The Ballpark at Arlington and Six Flags. The hotel is near those places but not next to them, which kind of defeats the purpose. It is still a good hike to those attractions so you might not want to walk. It would not make sense to drive either and pay the high parking rates. Kind of a catch-22.
The hotel itself is functional enough. It has the usual Marriott brand hotel pluses like complimentary Internet and parking, 24-hr fitness center, and good customer service. And with it being a suite, you get more of a sitting area. The room mostly reminded me of the SpringHill Suites in Temecula (they have a somewhat similar decor); unfortunately, the rooms did not feel that fresh though. And there was something about the squareness of the design, the poor flow of the room and the lack of energy that reminded me of a dormitory or something (it was still a comfortable room overall).
The first floor has a college dormitory type feel too (especially with the smallness of the lobby and the administrative building-like front desk). It kind of feels like a hospital as well (without the hospital smell, which was a relief).
SpringHill Suites does offer a complimentary breakfast, but it was not that good. There was not much variety and the food did not look that good. You will find a much greater variety at the SpringHill Suites in Temecula and even a better complimentary breakfast at the SpringHill Suites in Napa.
The room rates are reasonable especially since Dallas is not that far away.
While the service was good and there were many standard Marriott pluses, the hotel's design and atmosphere was too boring and outdated (even for a chain hotel). I think with a lot of Marriott brand hotels, you can't really expect a contemporary or lively decor, but this SpringHill Suites was even a big step below most other Marriott brand hotels I've stayed at.
I think this is a perfectly fine hotel overall so it is not a bad option if you can overlook the design/decor/atmosphere. But if you are looking for a Marriott brand hotel in the Dallas area, there are several options available so you may want to do a little more research before settling on this one.
As mentioned, this hotel offers free parking. It is easy to find a space close to the hotel.

Unbelievable! Apparently you should not expect customer service if you did not book directly through them. We used Priceline and got a room with a king and a pull out bed. A pull out bed that we could not open because they put in new tv stands that are too big. When we called the front desk the gal there who checked us in 15 minutes earlier and never mentioned this to us explained that they knew this was a problem but we could move the tv stand ourselves. A solid piece of furniture with a tv on it. When we asked to switch rooms she said all she could do was switch us to a similar room with the same problem. Her manager refused to let us in an available room with two beds unless we paid the difference. It was 10:00 at night and they refused to let us stay in a room that did not require us moving furniture!!! What would happen if we hurt ourselves or the tv broke?! Once we gave in and opened the bed we were met with a gross stained mattress! Nice!

Decent hotel. I primarily stay at marriotts and I'm okay with this one. Awkward layouts of the rooms and everything is very green and blue. Bed is relaxing just like any other marriott brand bed.
The only con is the front desk people. They're not as friendly as I had hoped. I also fun it difficult to find things like a fitness center and what not.

This Springhill Suites was not in a swanky area or anything, but perfectly placed within close proximity to Six Flags, the Ranger's Stadium and the Cowboy's Stadium. The Staff was very hospitable.
The rooms were spacious and nicely decorated. The room was clean and I didn't notice a bunch of issues like other places I've stayed in recent times.
The breakfast isn't 5 stars, but really quite good for a hotel breakfast.
I would suggest that you call for your own cab or use Uber/Lyft. We made the mistake of allowing the front desk guy to call a cabbie he knew. It was nice that the cab came quickly, but then we got gouged. We (4 of us) took a 6 mile ride to In-N-Out Burger and were charged $30. The driver didn't use his meter. I guess I was too focused on eating a burger to fight the exorbitant cab ride.
