Clay Chapman gave us a very nice experience - Easy check in and out. A lot nicer than other Holiday Inn's. Hot tub had great jets but could have been hotter. Located close to freeway (290) without freeway noise. We were on 3rd floor, minimal noise. Love the lotions and potions. Please add magnifying lit up make up mirrors for the ladies. Carpet was a little stained but nothing too terrible. Ceiling could use a fresh coat of paint.

Breakfast service (w/Debbie and others) was first rate. They made our b'fast experience as enjoyable as possible. Front desk service was also first rate. Rooms were clean but smallish. Housekeeping was very good. Real con: only one 4-floor elevator for guests and servicing carts...not good. Very pricey for an Express. Good location for several attractions.

Room Tip: Don't expect larger rooms...of course, you're at a Holiday Inn Express...what else would you...

Front desk staff, especially Clay, was excellent! Could not have been more welcoming, courteous and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the breakfast was delicious, and the free bottles of water were an added bonus - especially on hot days!

Maybe my standard are too high, but I think not. Stayed at this Holiday Inn Express and it was a very odd property....just didn't feel clean...and air freshener didn't help. Why did I have to buy air freshener in a hotel that cost $161-181 a night? Carpet was stained and I hate to think what was ground in there. Neither one of us would take off our flip-flops and we kinda wished we had shower shoes for the shower, which was old, mildewed and very outdated. The bathroom door would not stay open and the toilets stopped up very easy. There were numerous odd things splattered on the walls and curtains and I tried not to think of what it probably was. Just nasty. I had to paper clip my curtains shut to keep the light out and the temperature didn't start to cool until it was set to 62 degrees.The doors didn't auto-lock and you had to fight with it to close when you left. It wasn't a housekeeping situation - they tried but the property just needed a good steam cleaning, sand-blasting and total painting, not patching holes. It looks as though the furniture has been recently replaced and that's a good thing but nothing helps if you don't get to the source of the problem.

The staff recommended a restaurant across the street for dinner and drinks and said that it was a short walk and we could cross at the light. The only thing was that FM 1960 is probably the busiest street in Houston and the light did not allow us enough time to cross the road. We literally came within seconds of being hit by oncoming traffic. Scared us beyond belief. Do not walk anywhere outside this hotel at night.

After a very uncomfortable night, we knew we couldn't stay there and feel safe or comfortable. So we told the manager our concerns, packed up in 5 minutes and moved to the Homewood Suites which was across the street. We were in a world of difference and oh so nice and comfortable....and safe. The only thing I give high marks for is that the staff was very courteous and did respond to our needs.
