We were visiting only for one night. We are from the U.K and found it much better to stay here than a hotel which is the same as any other hotel anywhere else in the world. There is a friendly welcome, snacks, good breakfast, option to use a washing machine which is helpful when touring around. Lots of helpful advise... More

I recently had a death in the family and need a place to stay for one night. Modern's website indicated that they had one room but that the policy was for a reservation with a minimum of 3 nights. (Houston has a major convention going on and all other places are booked) I sent an email to Lisa explaining my... More

I’m so sorry for your loss and apologize for being short with you. I had several guests trying to check in when you called and I was receiving another call on the other line. Since we are not a hotel, this can be a one-man-show at times, meaning that we don’t have a front desk person, a reservation person, etc.... More

The Modern B&B is everything you’d expect and more from a top quality B&B, from the complimentary wine and nibbles every evening to the quirky, stylish rooms, the staff are all very helpful, friendly and courteous, this B&B has all the ingredients to create a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, something I value when spending extended periods of time away from home....

You will be charmed, Lisa and her staff are out of a travel adventure novel. You will rest, laugh, and eat delicious food.

I've been staying exclusively at the Modern for over 5 years now, at least 12 times a year. Lisa and her staff are very welcoming and will drag you out to restaurants, runs (she and boyfriend Avi are marathoners) and bars/clubs if you like, and there are 20+ restaurants within a short distance. My favorite: the Alabama Ice House and... More

Bill, thank you for the wonderful post! I'm off to the Boston Marathon tomorrow, and will certainly be grabbing some of those delicious tacos on my way back home (they'll certainly hit the spot after the long run). Look forward to seeing you again! More

My husband loved this B&B. The first night he never went out to dinner, just socialized with some other guests, eating free appetizers and drinking wine. He said it was a very pleasant evening. He sent pictures of the Houston skyline and sunset from one of two terraces in his room. He wishes it were nearer NYC!

Beautiful building situated within walking distance of the Menil Collection, Rothko museum and an up and coming neighborhood filled with coffee shops, restaurants and boutique interior design and shopping. The neighborhood is still be gentrified so there were construction noises at 1 in the morning. The chef is great and makes delicious omelets, breakfast spread and happy hour. To me... More

Such a neat and creative concept, in one of the best locations in HOU. First off, you don't know where to enter, the sign is small and hidden as you pass by. Kind of confusing knowing where to enter, Check-In was quick in the main house. Rooms were a great size, Looks like they had been recently remodeled, rough finishes... More

Stayed at Modern B&B for 11 nights. Breakfasts were very tasty and often social occasions. Great kitchen for cooking and storing your own food (important for extended durations). Big, open common areas. They have a decent, make-shift gym in the garage. Clean rooms. Comfy beds. Montrose is great for dining and exploring. Also the B&B is very close to 59... More

I attempted two calls to book a room and both times was hung up on with a condescending "honey" and was told that I could email her if I wanted a room in the upcoming days. I'm guessing that I would have to deal with this same level of attitude if I were to stay there all week next week... More
