“This place is horrible!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

This motel is dirty. The furniture was badly stained, the picture in the room had cracked glass, the bath tub was stained/dirty and the rate was ridiculous for the condition of this motel. I did not feel safe given the people loitering about the property. The tremendous potholes in the parking lot are more like quarries. I did not think motels like this were still in existence. If this place feels like home to you or its the best place you've ever stayed in Houston - I am so very sorry for you!!!

The stay in this hotel was terrible. Only gave us two towels for four people. The toilet was overflowing and went to the front desk to tell them and was handed a plunger. Had to plunge the toilet everytime we used it. The bed only had a sheet and a bed spread. Who knows the last time it was washed. Had a coffee maker but no coffee to put in it. Had to go to front office to get toilet paper. At breakfast they had a loaf of bread with a jar of grape jelly. Not jelly packets or even a squeeze bottle of jelly but an old jar of jelly. Who knows who has had there hands in that jar. Not sure the health department would approve of that. There was no air in the breakfast area and it was really hot. Went to use the work out equipment and none of it worked. All the machines were broken and dirty. There was nothing good about this stay. When I complained they were only willing to comp me $30. Staff was very rude.

We checked in and then immediately checked out. We thought we could save some money and stay here. The room was *dirty*. The curtains were falling half off the rod. No blanket, just a comforter... Who knows when it was changed or cleaned. One of the pillowcases had smudge marks, obviously had not been changed. I inspected the bedsheets and discovered a small dead bug. The bathroom was extremely small. The floor in the room was old dirty parquet and there were dust bunnies all along the baseboards. In addition there was loud freeway traffic. I never felt safe. Need I say more?

The hotel was in a great location for what we needed. There are a bunch of restaurants in the immediate area. My only complaint isn't with the hotel . Next time we will request an upstairs room because our second night we got upstairs neighbors that were really loud. The female wore her high heels getting ready for bed way after 12:30am and then had some loud intimate time at 1am and then again at 5am. I understand we are in a hotel but have some respect for others around you trying to sleep. Other than that it is a wonderful place to stay and if we ever stay in Houston again we will stay there.

Truly felt the like home feeling as soon as I stepped into the lobby area. Check in was fast. I also like the large selection of nearby food establishment. I was referred here by a friend and am glad I choose to stay here while my apartment is getting ready.

The hotel is pretty nice for a local hotel without the big corporation backing. However the front desk is not run very well and they overbooked and messed up our reservations. Not very helpful at all and didn't really try to make it right.

The hotel was clean, would have rated higher had they not screwed up our reservations. The location is fine, it's a clean area, felt perfectly safe. Easy drive to the downtown area. Probably would have given a 4 or 5 if not for the service issues. Clean and cheap, if that's what you need this is the place for you.

So thankful that I found this place! The mini fridge in my room and kitchen in the lobby area was a perfect solution to save money. I think this is one of the best choices for a college student who needs a quick place to stay and keep their healthy routine. Though the variety of places to eat around made it quite tempting to buy dinner.
