You will be charmed, Lisa and her staff are out of a travel adventure novel. You will rest, laugh, and eat delicious food. I only stay at B and B's two weeks out the month for business travel and I must say after trying all the B and B's in Houston I've found my favorite hands down. If your looking... More

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

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

Nancy, Thanks for the really thoughtful review. I took notes on your suggestions & we just ordered some cool reading lights so hopefully that helps.

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

I stayed 3 nights here, it was really beautiful location in a leafy neighborhood. The rooms were big, clean and had all anyone would need. Breakfast was fantastic, wifi is fast, free parking and hosts very friendly.

I just returned from a trip to Houston where the wedding party all stayed at the Modern B&B. Lisa, the owner, was warm and inviting and made every accommodation for our two small children. Our room (Cityview) up on the top floor was spacious with flowering trees outside every window. My favorite part was the fresh, made-to-order breakfast every morning... More

When visiting Houston, don't miss the opportunity to stay at Modern B & B. It is a great place to stay with a wonderful owner named Lisa and entertaining guests. It sure as heck beats the normal boring stay at noisy hotels with sub-standard service. Modern B & B was very enjoyable and relaxing and is located near downtown Houston.... More
