I was in The Woodlands for a trade show in March 2011. The host hotel for the show was too high for my tiny travel budget and I selected the Hampton Inn Houston - The Woodlands as a lower-priced alternative.
The hotel has exterior corridors and there is no elevator, a fact stated very plainly on their website. The lobby is very nice and looks newly renovated. The police station is somewhat next door so there is that added safety benefit. The check-in process was quick and friendly. I was given a room on the second floor at my request because ground-floor rooms make me nervous when travelling solo. I was given a room right at the top of the stairs, great when hauling up the suitcase but bad for noise.
The room reminded me of an old economy lodge type set-up. The queen sized bed was comfortable although the swampy air from outside never really was tamed by the AC, leaving it feeling a bit damp in the room. It was pretty dark in the room with curtain drawn for privacy and the lights had the energy-efficient but unflattering halogen bulbs. The room was clean but it just felt a bit off. I have stayed at many Hampton Inns and this might have been one of my least favorites. The road noise, the noise from the parking lot and the exterior hallway/stairs noise might have had something to do with my crabbiness. But, for the area, the price was very reasonable and it was a short drive to the heart of The Woodlands.
