Ok for the night.

Stay was ok. Room was really small and sheets were dirty so we got them changed soon as we arrived. Toilet was dirty and we used slippers in the shower and out just for caution. Location was great we were close by everything.

Weekend downtown

Was kind of disappointed there was no pool. Other than that it was a really good value, and pretty close to downtown.

Christmas vacation for my husband

The gentleman that helped me was nice but I had to wait for 15 minutes as he talked to his friend about where someone lived. I was pretty ticked off. The room didn't look clean because the carpet needed to be replaced, the heater was broke it was either too hot or too cold. The bathroom was horrible also. The toilet seat wobbled around as you sat on it and I'm only 130 pounds. Lol The water pressure was very low in the shower, for hot water the water would barely come out! The room was $65.00 for one night but I wasn't expecting a rat hole.

Nice!!

We had a nice stay at ABVI. The check in was nice and easy, they were very friendly. Room was an ok size, but it had a fridge and microwave (we paid $220 at another hotel last week and we had to request a fridge be brought to our room...and they didn't have any microwaves to offer). Getting there, the neighborhood was iffy, then it got really nice. Conveniently located. I'd DEF recommend this place!

nice, affordable

As the name implies, this hotel is trying to save you money, not impress you with amenities. It was a very good stay for the price; the staff were helpful; the room was pretty clean and comfortable; it is reasonably close to public transportation. The "continental breakfast" was cereal (2 choices) and milk, packaged muffins, and coffee, which was fine by me.

AC turned off in rooms

Very bad experience

It was a very hot summer day in Houston, Texas. We got into the room to find out that the A/C was off! It was very hot in the room. After turning on the A/C, it took a long time for the room to cool down. This was the first hotel that I encountered that turned off A/C in guest rooms to save cost even there will be guests living in the rooms on the very day. Very bad experience! Also, the towels in the room were not good or clean.
