The Lancaster s a faded vintage hotel in downtown Houston It's at best a 3 star hotel and no more.
Upon arrival, the first thing that hits you is the swamp/mold/septic tank odor that permeates the lobby. It is seriously foul and apparently the stench has been there for years. Lord knows its cause.
The good: The rooms are spacious and clean. The bed is firm, the pillows comfortable and the bathroom is more than adequate. Free wifi is good, too.
The no so good. Aside from the aforementioned stench, the TV set is from the Reagan era but there's plenty of cable choices and 2 out of the three phones in the room didn't work. The hotel cafe is pretty mediocre, too, best to eat out.
The Lancaster could be a terrific hotel if the owners cared to put a little more time and money info the place. It's not bad, but could be oh so fine. Stay there if the price is right (less than $100) but go with your eyes open and your nostrils held tight.
