We stayed here before since it is well located. My husband and I are retired teachers and search out value but I was badly disappointed. The rear parking does absolutely not help when all entrances are locked up late at night. If you park in the rear, there is no space in the front, you have to walk to the... More

If you want a descent place to stay that is close to the rodeo this is not the one to stay in. We stayed there last year for the rodeo and it is a real dump, the doors don't lock and the room over all is horrible. They need to do major upgrades on this place. I have stayed in... More

Near the Texas Medical Center, I am in from Atlanta, Georgia for treatment at MDAnderson. Their rates have helped with the affordability needed to be in Houston. The staff is exceptionally helpful. I have stayed at other hotels in the area and paid much much more. Yes it is an older property but it is maintained.

I recently stayed at this hotel with my family and let me say this is the most disgusting hotel I have ever stayed in. We would have switched hotels, but there was a college football game in town so all of the hotels were booked for Saturday night--except this one, of course. We walked into the room and the stench...

Another hotel was overbooked and put us in this place. Smokey, old, just felt awful. Couldn't plug the alarm clock in. Toilet seat not fastened. I killed a couple bugs in the bathroom. Bed was bad. Towels were small and not many threads. Windows or wall let all noise from the outside into the room. Our son said this was... More

I stayed here while visiting M D Anderson for my final tests. I have stayed here numerous times before. It is an older hotel, not fancy, but basic. The room was clean and quiet. The TV was old, but worked fine. The shuttle to the hospital was awesome. The people who work there are very nice and helpful. There is... More

Not so friendly staff. Walked in & blood stains on the pillow! Top sheet had burn holes, no comforter, just 2 sheets around a thin blanket. No plug close to the bathroom, actually about 7 ft up wall, so good luck if you need to use a blow dryer. Shady guys that looked like drug dealers hanging around. Would not... More

Electrical outlets are faulty and not enough for the 2 lamps, a TV, and the alarm in the front room. The TV service has 17 of the 18 channels listed in the room, not satellite. My door doesn't close really well without slamming it. No wonder the parking lot is mostly empty. The pictures on the site are totally off... More

Should be listed as 1 or 1.5 stars, and pay less than $70 per night! Spend your money elsewhere! Family friendly (no drug dealers) with good customer service, but especially for people with respiratory issues don't stay here! A/C worked great - but was located in the wall at bed height so one of us had to sleep with the... More

I arrived around 10pm and got my room key and opened the door tried to turn on the lights, but they weren't working. I went back to the desk and they gave me another room... so I went in and the lights worked and the room was old, dirty and bad smell. It was so late reluctantly decided to stay,... More
