Crystal City, TX, February 08, 2013 --( A new hotel concept which combines quality oversized guestrooms with secure, full-sized, on-property garages for vehicles and tools, has opened in Crystal City, Texas in the heart of the Eagle Ford Shale.

Guests also enjoy a complimentary full breakfast daily, an on-site Pantry Store, free high-speed Internet throughout the hotel, housekeeping service and exclusive key entry access to the property.

Besides being one of the few hotels in the Eagle Ford Shale to offer these amenities, The Derrick Lodge is the first hotel in the area to open with full-sized, 437-square-foot garages with key pad access for workers to store their trucks, tools and equipment. Forty enclosed garages are available along with ample surface parking for oversized vehicles.
