3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

The hotel is well situated, and the staff is very friendly. But overall the property is a bit dated, and the room itself was mediocre. It had that musty smell of an old hotel room that desperately needs to be aired out. The bed was loud and creaky. We were there for only one night so it wasn't worth changing... More

It was our first time bringing our kids to houston & also their first time in a hotel. They loved the breakfast (was too much to choose from...lol), & the pools. The 1 bedroom suite was perfect for us, as the kids had the sofa bed to sleep. The hotel is situated perfectly for a family trip to houston. The... More

We spent three nights at the Residence Inn and were quite satisfied. The 2-room suite was spacious, though we would have preferred a king to a queen-sized bed. The kitchen was well-equipped if you plan to eat in. The AC was a bit noisy but performed adequately. The entire place was clean and bright. There is a small but adequate... More

The hotel was okay until I found a dead roach on the bath room floor. It was the last night of my stay. Check in was quick and the friendly staff. The hotel was in a good location to restaurants. The pool area was nice, wish they had bigger towels in the pool area.

We enjoyed staying here. The location was perfect since everything we needed and wanted to do was not very far. The staff were very friendly and always eager to assist. Also, the rooms were clean and not too cold or too hot. I would stay here again when in the area.

I stayed here for 15 days for work recently. The staff is very friendly. However, the motel is not well maintained. During my stay... 1) Upon check-in, I noticed that a previous guest had missed the trash can under the sink with a full cup of coffee. There was coffee spilled and dried all over.

I've always underestimated this hotel, but after a recent stay I won't do that anymore. The customer service here is above average, the free breakfast was above average, and the rooms (recently remodeled I hear) are above average.
