Conveniently located in a quiet area in southwest Lubbock, this affordable hotel puts you mere minutes from most of the area’s sites and attractions. Their clean and comfortable suites can include a king bed or two queen beds and a full sleeper sofa, plus a small kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. Other amenities include free wi-fi and an indoor pool and hot tub. The free breakfast buffet is a nice combination of hot and cold items, guaranteed to please the pickiest of eaters.
The Sleep Inn is near several fast food and casual restaurants, but nothing within easy walking distance. However, your kids will definitely want to walk next door to Mahon Park, where you’ll find a playground, trails, and shade trees. There’s also a public golf course, in case you want to practice your swing. Drive a few miles into downtown Lubbock to find an outstanding selection of fine dining options, antique shops, and fascinating museums. In particular, your entire family will enjoy the collection of old west buildings at the National Ranching Heritage Center and the hands-on science exhibits at the Science Spectrum Museum. Pop in to the much-loved Prairie Dog Town to watch the furry little critters scamper in their natural habitat. No visit to Lubbock would be complete without a stop at the Buddy Holly Center, where you can learn about the rock and roll legend and Lubbock native. With its oversized rooms and convenient freeway location, the Sleep Inn and Suites will make a fine choice for your family vacation in Texas.

Our normal go to hotel was booked on TTU family weekend so this was our second choice. The hotel was clean and the employee attentive. A hot breakfast was included and as expected. Our room was spacious with a king bed and sofa. Nice shower and good size TV. Will have no problem staying here again.
We had an overnight stay here to visit the buddy holly centre and it was a nice hotel. We checked in early with no problems and our room request was honoured. The staff here were very nice and helpful. They had a lovely indoor pool area that we enjoyed using and there were restaurants in walking distance. The room was clean and comfortable and very cool which is what we needed in temperatures over 100 degrees. Breakfast was very good with hot and cold options. I recommend this hotel.
