A while back we had heard that Dream Hotels was dreaming about a Dream Hotel for Dallas but we had no idea that Dream's sister brand, Night Hotels, creeped into Dallas seemingly overnight.

Yet, this Night Hotel may have been more like a nightmare.

A reader tipped us off to the recent reviews on TripAdvisor and they are horrifyingly bad. Since American Airlines seems to be using this hotel as a place for displaced/delayed passengers, the reviews have come fast and furious. Here are two that are still fit to print:

Walked into the room, two of the light fixtures were non operational, room was dark and the air conditioner was so noisy that I would have needed ear plugs. Windows were beyond filthy. I turned around, walked to the front desk and tossed them my keys. I asked to be given a ride back to the airport immediately and was. The guy at the front desk asked if I was going to catch a late night flight so I told him "yeah, something like that".

I did not feel safe at this hotel. Their shuttle took forever to arrive at the airport, took 2 calls to find out where they were, and was so old and rickety I couldn't talk on my cell phone. The lobby night club attracts an unsavory crowd and people are lurking around everywhere. The halls are dark. The front desk is covered with graffiti and the staff couldn't answer basic questions. My room furniture was covered in vinyl upholstery with lights around the bed. Everything is painted black. The bathroom needs a total make-over. Somehow they thought I'd be fooled by a new shower curtain.

Know of a hotel room open for Super Bowl? Tell us where right here.

While some NFL fans are scrambling to get to either Pittsburgh or Chicago this weekend, many of them are still holding out for the ultimate game, Super Bowl XLV in Dallas on February 6.

We've been keeping a running list of hotels in the Dallas area with hotel rooms open and the good news is there are still plenty of places to crash. But if you have a discerning taste in hotel rooms (i.e. not the Super 8 on the highway 45 miles away from the stadium), the good spots are mostly sold-out.

However, we did learn that the Omni Dallas at Park West , about 20 miles from Cowboy Stadium, still has rooms open and the rates are not totally obscene. Here's what the hotel is offering with its special Super Bowl Package:
