On my recent trip to Houston I was looking for an affordable place to stay in an area I hadn't been to before, instead of staying somewhere closer to the city, at a higher price. The Super 8 motel in Rosenberg, in Fort Bend County, Texas, fit the bill. It's located on the US 59 Freeway, which will become Interstate 69 in the future. It's south of the Brazos River, not too far from the wealthy suburb of Sugar Land. I took the highway 36 exit off of the freeway, and quickly found the Super 8 motel, on the north side of the freeway, on the west side of Route 36, which is also South First Street in Rosenberg. It's a two story motel, and I prefer an upper floor room. A flight of stairs took me up to a balcony, which faces the parking lot to the south, and to my room. The freeway was about a half a block to the south, but it was far enough away that I wasn't bothered by the sounds of trucks traveling on the road at night. The Super 8 motel is well maintained, and I had no problems. The only thing I didn't like was that there wasn't a big selection of channels to choose from on the TV. One thing I did like was that breakfast was included in the price of the room, obtained in their breakfast area by the front desk.
Rosenberg is a sizeable town, right on the southwest edge of the Houston Metropolitan area. Just to the east of Rosenberg is the town of Richmond, TX, which is the county seat of Fort Bend County, one of the largest counties in population in the state of Texas. Rosenberg is also a major railroad junction town. The tracks of the Santa Fe Railroad, and the Union Pacific Railroad go east to west on the north side of the downtown area. There is a railroad museum there. Amtrak trains between San Antonio and Houston go through Rosenberg, but I don't believe they stop. I remember riding the Texas Chief on the Santa Fe RR back in the 1960's, from Chicago to Houston, and the train stopped in Rosenberg back then.
The bottom line is that I found the Super 8 motel in Rosenberg to be a decent place to spend the night, at a good price, and I would consider going back there again.
