“Close and comfy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2011

We stay at this location when we need to go to the Medical Center nearby. The rooms are nicely sized and very comfortable. The staff is attentive. We frequently use our priority club points to get one of the rooms with the jacuzzi tub. Breakfast was typical but plentiful with some added choices like a selection of nuts to add to cereal. Plenty of parking and they offer a free shuttle to the medical center. My only "complaint" is that there is only one way in and out of the parking lot so don't miss the entrance or you have to go around a long block. This is also a good location for Reliant Stadium.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review us. Positive reviews like yours are better than almost any kind of advertisment. We have petitioned the City of houston for easier access to our lot. We are glad you like the nuts, we added them to the menu specifically for Medical Guests who were looking for something healthier.

Thanks again for taking the time to review us. We really appreciate it.

At Your Service,

Walker

The good: friendly staff; clean large room
The bad and the Ugly: the bed was hard as a brick; the AC was by the bed and blew on us; the breakfast was terrible. The cook had apparently quit and the poor man in charge came running in with a bag of groceries. Even at that the food was of poor quality.

Room Tip: Ask for the top floor due to noise

The hotel employers are very friendly and work hard to please the guest. We woke up to no hot water, when I called the front desk within 5 minutes someone was at our room to help us out.

Thank you so much for your review, we appreciate you taking the time out of your day to endorse us despite having an issue during your stay. We assure you water issues are rare at our property, and we have recently installed a second water heater to back up in case of an overload for the first one.

Thank you so much for your continued patronage. We are happy to have you stay with us during your visits to the Medical Center. Your review is about as wonderful as they get, we could not get paid advertising as good if we tried.

We look forward to seeing you again.

This hotel worked out perfect for me. It is about 20 minutes from HOU and perfectly situated where I needed to be. It was one of the few hotels that I found with free parking. The hotel seems brand new (it isn't very old but still kept in great shape). My room was very comfy - featured high ceiling (I really like this because most hotels just have standard height ceilings, the extra couple of feet makes the space feel so much bigger), fridge, microwave and a huge LCD tv (i think it was 42 inches). The Front Desk Manager (Walker) really helped me out during my stay. I really appreciate a good staff at a hotel that sincerely enjoys making my life easier - this place has got it! Thanks!

Room Tip: Great Location and Free parking - GREAT STAFF

Stayed at Holday Inn Express Medical Center for a week. The experience was great. Very friendy staff who were responsive to all needs. The front desk clerk would say good morning or hi in the evenings - you would not think this is big deal but after spending the day at the hospital with a loved one, it was nice to hear. They have a shuttle to the medical center. Breakfast was good - several items to fit any taste. They have a nice , clean washer and dryer that was $1.50 - they could charge more knowing people are there for extended stays - but don't. One other note - the hotel is right around the corner from Target, Kroger and may fast food as well as other resturants.

Stayed here while going to MD Anderson for treatments. This Hotel is very clean and the staff was extrememly friendly and helpful. Free breakfast was really nice as well. While tthe bed was really nice and linens clean, the mattress with a little firmer than me or my wife like. Not the worst I have ever slept though. Add a pillowtop mattress and this place is darn near perfect!

Also, Lots of shopping and restraunts within a short drive, some within walking distance.

I will be heading back to MDA next week and will be staying here again!!
