We chose this hotel due to walking distance to Minute Maid Ballpark. Rooms are not large (It's an older hotel, but the charm more than makes up for the room size). Staff is friendly and attentive. Will stay here again.More

The Sam does not have a shuttle to the airport. They typically recommend Uber as the least expensive way.
