This is a very modern well equipped motel with very nice gym, pool area and breakfast room. It is located pretty much all by itself off of US 290 which is under extensive reconstruction making access difficult. There is also lots of road noise at night.. The only problem, very minor, was that the clock in the gym was dead... More

Being longtime Choice Hotel privilege members, we normally stay at Comfort Suites, but on this occasion ended up booking the Sleep Inn thinking -- "it's only one night." Right away I was impressed with the look/feel/cleanliness and a late night clerk whose first language is English. It's a great location, near several great restaurants -- including our favorite, Papadeaux. Room... More

I would stay here again, the location is good. Several restaurants and watering holes you can walk to. It's not a Marriott but it was sufficient for business stay. Room clean and comfortable. Front desk was helpful and professional.

This hotel was ideally located from my family's home. I was able to walk there and visit them. The rooms were very clean, service was prompt and friendly. Breakfast was free and reasonable. Wifi was in and out but enough to check email and stay in touch. It even had a very small exercise room.

Be very careful when you book an online reservation with this hotel. Having a layover at IAH (in 6 weeks), I made an online reservation at this hotel, thinking it was the Sleep in by the airport. I realized I had booked at the wrong Sleep Inn within 10 minutes and immediately called the hotel directly to cancel or transfer... More

I stayed at this Sleep Inn for one night. Most of Houston was sold out that night, but this hotel still had rooms for an affordable price. This hotel seems to be brand new! The first thing I noticed was the front desk staff should be standing up while helping guests. If I, the tired and worn guest, has to... More

Stayed at the Sleep Inn Hwy 290 for three nights on business. Overall the experience was fine but I wouldn't go out of my way to stay here again when in the area. The number of television stations is very limited - including no NBC network. None of the few cable channels are in HD which defeats the purpose of... More

I was put up here by an airline also, due to a cancled flight. i arrived late and was checked in effortlessly. the clerk was very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable, clean and well furnished. I had a good nights sleep. However, I did not need an alarm clock the next morning. That is when I find out... More
