This is by far one of the most difficult hotels that I've stayed at to rate. Reason being that it's got it's fair shares of pro's and con's which is why I gave it an "average" rating.
Pro's: Conveniently located off I-10 near 610 junction and across from Edwards Theaters multiplex. Affordable room rates and very friendly staff. This is what I liked the most about this place; staff friendliness. This Holiday Inn location had adequate parking spaces versus other Houston hotels that I've stayed at. All the electronics were fully functional and great wifi connectivity.
Con's: I stayed on the 5th floor facing I-10 and boy could you hear the traffic. The noise issue was very apparent anytime a motorcycle or "sport car" would speed on by. The decor is a bit outdated, but I understand that this is an older Holiday Inn Express. I think if they updated the carpet and bedding the room would look a lot nicer. The furniture could also use some updating, but it's not outdated enough to give the room a tacky look.
Another item that I'd like to add under the "con's" is that this is the only Houston Holiday Inn location that did not give me a "free gift" for being a rewards member. Granted the "free gift" at many locations may consist of bottled water, chips and candy, but still. lol
So all in all if you're looking for a convenient location to stay at without breaking the bank this is your place. The staff will make you feel very much at home. While I did not eat the breakfast I saw many in the lobby helping themselves. So the free breakfast must be good.
