The room smelled so terribly old, musky and stuffy I would have liked to leave the door open all night. I had to wash my pyjama immediately afterwards and put a T-shirt over the pillow to make it bearable. All surfaces were sticky. The breakfast area was extremely dated and not too clean; the food absolutely not appetizing. Not recommended at all!

We apologize that your stay was not to your satisfaction. As you know the hotel is located in Southeast Texas where the weather is very humid. Once air conditioners are turned on the humid environment does improve and any associated odor you may be exposed to will be eliminated. Due to energy costs and environmental considerations we do not leave all air conditioners on unless a guest has a reservation. We take housekeeping very seriously and try to provide a fresh room for all of our guests.

Very nice lobby and breakfast area. Fitness center not the best. Photos I saw online were deceiving--makes hotel look like one large building with all the rooms inside it, but really it's a motel with most of the rooms having their own door to the outside. Pretty sure Rodeway purchased this place from someone else and then built the front lobby building to dress it up. No frills for sure but definitely a clean room, quiet stay, nice bed, courteous staff.

This place is great value, especially with my senior’s discount.
The front entrance is impressive for a motel, but the Place is really no frills. I was given the choice of a room accessible from inside the main building or with a door to the parking lot. The pool was closed due to the cold weather.
The room was good size with a king bed – firm mattress, just the way I like it.
There was no clock in my room and you needed a cable for the internet, but both are available at the front desk, so be sure to ask for anything you need. The staff is very accommodating and friendly.
There are good TV channel choices and I had a restful night in a GREAT bed. I also especially enjoyed the shower which had good pressure and a massage setting.
Everything was very clean.
Breakfast was disappointing, very basic, only doughnuts, cereal, toast and oranges, coffee and orange juice to drink only. No teabags but hot water, so bring your own. I missed the waffle machine you can find in so many places now.
Overall the no frills-good value place suited me fine, since I was just passing through.

For a non-smoking room, our room had a very stale, mildewy smell. If it hadn't already been 11 pm, we would have asked for another room or found another place. Also, the shower was minimal - no place at all to put the soap. It was supposed to have free wifi - but there wasn't any in our room (but perhaps in the lobby?)

Great bed. Good value for the money. But be aware there is no elevator available and also no luggage carts.

Long story short, I needed a cheap place to stay for one night on I-10 between Houston and New Orleans. This place was the cheapest. The only reason I am giving it 2-stars is for the nicely designed lobby with spiral staircases. Otherwise, a total dump to be avoided unconditionally.

You can't miss this Hotel from the Highway. It's a bright "hazard sign" yellow color with light flourescent orange trim and purple doors. The owners are not friendly and hardly every smile, BUT the bed is comfortable and the rooms are clean!

We stayed two weeks with hubby for business. Even though check out time is 11:00 a.m., housekeeping came earlier everyday. They came as early as 9:00 a.m. I asked them to come back later and they came back 16 minutes later, so if you don't want to be disturbed put the "do not disturb" card on your door.

Also, if you book a room for one week and have to leave early, they will refund NOTHING. We travel excessively, so for the bed alone and the clean room, I can deal with the unfriendly help and housekeeping. They have the best orange juice, too.
