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!

Don't ignore the other reviews saying this place is a dump. It's one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in. If you absolutely have to stay here, be prepared for a dirty room, dirty bathroom and a foul smell that runs through the whole hotel.

I spend 49-50 nights in a hotel a year all over the world. Honestly this is a horrible example- the most backward country has cleaner rooms. We paid $90+ For a king non-smoking accessible room. When we checked in they only one king on a second floor. Upon opening the door, the carpet is loose from the wall, the bathroom... More

The place was acceptable. A little bit dirty (especially the bathroom) but this is our usual experience with Americas Best Value. The heating system was horribly loud, we had to shut it down to be able to sleep. The breakfast was really poor. Some very bad quality muffins and a couple of apples. That's it. I believe that the orange... More
