Although we were only there a few hours, we found the hotel very condusive.we had a smoke-free room that was actually smoke smell-free. The parking lot was smaller than the occupancy, forcing us to park out on the street, but that wasn't really an issue. The continental breakfast was pretty weak. I would have not have missed it if it... More

We stayed for 4 days and the Howard Johnson did a great job of maintaining the room and providing a good breakfast. No complaints!

torn shower curtains - smoky smelling room that was supposedly smoke free - frayed linens on bed - tub that had no stopper - could only be used as a shower easily - no elevator - one table for 4 in the breakfast area - food only fair though a small variety was available Not worth the price

From check in to check out, we had a great stay! The hotel accommodated our request for a downstairs/smoking room. It was also in a great location for our trip. The staff was very friendly too. Next time we are in Houston, we will stay again.

This is an excellent ECONOMY CLASS hotel. The room was bright and clean, furnished nicely with a desk and office type chair, free Wi-Fi, good TV with an amazing number of channels, and enough on the free breakfast to get you going for the day. There is no restaurant, no pool, and not a lot of other amenities. But for... More
