“Well, they try . . .”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

This is not a Best Western. That's how we wound up here, thanks to a family member who got confused. It's a rough place that has the benefit of being cheap. The room was clean and the people were nice. We still got out as fast as we could.

Room Tip: Don't. Just don't.

This was absolutely the worst hotel I've ever been to. We had planned a three day trip to Houston. First the address was wrong and the staff gave us an address that didn't get us there either. The first thing we noticed was a SWAT team surround the building and start rushing inside. The front desk is behind protective glass. We still tried the room and after trying three rooms we left. The first door wouldn't even lock, the second had water spraying all over the bathroom floor from the toilet, and the beds are rock hard with paper thin sheets and springs poking the surface, and we didn't even go in the third room because the smell of what smelled like a cross between somebody cooking something illegal and cat pee took our breath away. The whole place stank like smoke and was not clean. We decided to leave regardless of if we could get a refund or not. After talking to a woman in the hallway who was also leaving after attempting to stay there one night with no sleep due to loud people and banging on walls, we realized we couldn't because the police had everything blocked off. Eventually we were able to leave. Stay as far away from this place as possible. Even if you are going there for illegal substance use or for prostitution it's not a good idea because of the frequently visiting SWAT team!

First off all, their adress is incorrcect. Had to call the hotel and get the adress,which was also wrong. (On the gps and google maps there are no western inn where it's suppose to be) Asked a police man for directions, he told us to staw away. So we cancelled. After reading reviews on hotels.com i'm glad we did.
