“Forget this place!! no shuttle.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

the hotel itself is not bad for $60.00. It is not around ANY places to eat except for a scary gas station next door. The location is terrible. What they dont tell you is that there is no airport shuttle between 1000am and 5pm. My flight arrived at 11am in the morning and I had to pay a taxi $18 to go 3 miles!. Once you are there you are stuck for food unless you walk to the gas station and buy a candy bar for dinner....really bad choice..The other airport hotels are all in one area except this one...dismal

Room Tip: all of the rooms face the parking lot and corner gas station.

I was so impressed by the sweet shuttle driver and helpful staff. Breakfast is included and was great. The room was clean and inviting and wifi is included in the price. I will definitely stay here again :)

2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

I was looking for a hotel close to the airport in Houston - one night stay before catching a flight the next day. This hotel came up in the search. It is indeed very close to the airport and has a great room rate. However, be aware that you this hotel is not in a great neighborhood. I assumed it would be in the same area as most of the airport hotels but it is not. It is in a very rundown industrial/warehouse area. The room is not bad once you get in there and close the drapes so you can't see around you. Dead bolt did not work in the first room they gave me. With the second room, you had to really shove the door to open it with the keycard. Also found out the next morning that while the room had a coffeemaker, it did not have a coffee pot. On the plus side, the staff is very pleasant and you can tell they are working hard to make this place a success. Hotel has not been updated and really needs it.

Had to stay after a flight delay. At $60 i wasn't expecting a lot. A motel style inn next to a truck-stop. 10 minute drive to airport and they have a shuttle. Friendly and efficient staff. Had coffee and some fruit ready for my 5am lift to airport. Room was basic, with adequate room, appeared neat and clean. Basic, in-room dinner and breakfast menu, is available and gas station convenience store next door, with traditional greasy fare, if required. Not much else near by.

Did have to unplug the fridge as it rattled; turn off the toilet because it ran constantly, and not turn on the heater because of the noise. You might also get some truck noise starting around 4am, as rigs head out from next door. As a traveller, I'm sure you'll have essential ear plugs.

Cigarette burns all over carpets. Blankets didn't even cover the top of the beds ... half at best. TV remote had no channel change button. TV came in terrible, like a picture negative. Shower caulk was peeled off everywhere. No bull nose tiles, sharp edges everywhere. Heater worked less than intermittent. We were cold all night. Tub was installed long time ago ... sticker glue was left there and covered with sludge. Red two by four was holding up sink in bathroom. Pillows were flat and our heads sunk right to the stiff mattress. Chair could not push under desk, it had to be relocated to walk to bathroom. Stay here at your own risk.
